OK, one more reader question to answer.
Hard Way said:
Sorry if this has already been asked and answered. With regard to the non-Robey corner underperformance, has there been any talk of using Lee at the spot where he saw considerable action in high school? No doubt Lee is highly valuable at WR, and two way players are rare, but with the availability of Aghahlor, the oft-injured Farmer, Flournoy, and Blackwell at WR, a log jam at Tight End, and opposing defenses keying on our WRs to limiting our offensive effectiveness . . . etc., etc. USC has tried stranger things, such as Tank formation, which was more effective on short yardage and 2-point conversions than anything yet from the Kiffin braintrust. Thanks.
A: The idea of a two-way player was discussed during Lane Kiffin’s first season and he talked about Robert Woods doing it. Lee is an even better candidate. I know there is no intention of doing it this season but I don’t think it is a crazy idea. Lee is such a good athlete he could probably handle it. But Kiffin practically talks about him in reverential tones and I think he would be too worried about Lee getting hurt or overworked.
