One last word on the Max Wittek injury. Part of this drive to have a quarterback hold stems from the time-wasting formation USC’s lined up for extra points the past three seasons.
The Trojans are ineffective on two-point conversions out of that formation but it keeps the quarterback as the holder on those plays and means there is a potential for injury. This is where special teams coach John Baxter needs to relax and just line up and kick. Then he can use someone else to hold.
