One night in the Coliseum was just that

USC came back to reality Saturday in Provo against BYU. The 18 year old true freshman quarterback had 3 interceptions including a game ending one in overtime. The running game was never able to help the Trojan quarterback and the defense was unable to hold a determined BYU offense. It was truly a team loss and with the resignation of Athletic Director Lynn Swann in the past week, and a new University President, it’s just a matter of time before Coach Clay Helton is fired. The Stanford team that USC beat last Saturday night in the Coliseum was nothing more than mediocre as they were absolutely dominated by UCF in Florida today. I expect USC to be 2-4 after they face Utah, Washington, and Notre Dame in the next 3 games. One good night in the Coliseum does not make a good team. On a positive note the long nightmare will soon be coming to an end when the Trojans get a new Athletic Director who won’t be a former player and knows how to be an Administrator that will find a Coach who will be better suited to a once proud program. Fight On! As a follow up here is what Paul Myerberg of USA Today said in his Winners and Losers from week 3 in his column. “The Trojans left last weekend with the wind at their backs after a 45-20 win against Stanford. Much has changed in the past seven days. For one, that win over the Cardinal is now meaningless. Earlier this week, athletics director Lynn Swann announced his resignation, increasing the already likely odds that this season will be coach Clay Helton’s last. Then came Saturday’s 30-27 overtime loss at Brigham Young. In all, it’s been a week that stands as a microcosm of USC’s embattled existence — combining off-field drama with on-field failure.”

  1. Great post!
    Helton is toast!
    If you get Meyer,
    You’ll boast.
    And down the line,
    SC will coast…
    To another national title
