Does anyone anticipate Arizona State playing a zone defense the entire game tonight against USC?
A Raiders question sneaks into this segment.
Here’s more on how Stanford’s loss is USC’s gain.
Time to ask questions again with signing date looming next week. One question per person please.
Finishing up the forum with mostly recruiting questions.
USC wide receiver Brice Butler will transfer to a FCS school in order to avoid redshirting next season. Butler announced the move on his twitter feed. His move means USC is once again below 60 scholarship players (59).
We hear former USC guard Bryce Jones is looking at Long Beach State, in addition to San Diego State.
In this segment, a scholarship question and a question about academics and Stanford.
New Raiders coach Hue “No one has an answer for third-and-20” Jackson reportedly fired former USC coaches Paul Hackett and Ted Tollner, who were Raider assistants last season. It’s especially ironic Jackson fired Hackett because in 1998, Hackett retained Jackson as a USC assistant when Hackett replaced John Robinson.
Why do I include, “No one has an answer for third-and-20” inside Jackson’s name? Because that was his answer as USC offensive coordinator when asked why the offense struggled so much on third-and-long situations.
Last month we mentioned that 2012 commitment Jordan Payton of Oaks Christian and USC could part ways. According to the website, PonyStampede.com, Payton said he is interested in SMU.
“SMU is definitely a school I’m talking with. I would love to take a trip there and have Coach (Adrian) Klemm show me what it’s all about . . . You can tell SMU fans that I’m definitely interested.”
