Time to answer some reader questions.
Where would you rank Barkley in terms of mobility of the QBs you have seen at USC? Was JD Booty the least mobile?
A: I’d probably rank Barkley above Booty in mobility. What surprised me is Barkley looked less mobile this season than last season. I’m not sure why because he never said he was hurt. Among the past 20 years or so, Rob Johnson was pretty immobile and someone mentioned Brad Otton.
A: That is quite an order and probably a nightmare scenario in Haden’s view. I think Kevin O’Neill is on the hot seat this year. Kiffin will definitely be on the hot seat next year. And who really knows if anyone cares that much about baseball.
But next year is going to be intense because everyone will be talking about Kiffin’s future on a weekly basis depending on whether USC wins or loses. I think one thing safe to say is that Haden does not enjoy firing coaches, so if he can keep someone, he will.
