USC Doesn’t Act Like It Lacks Scholarships

Since Ed Orgeron became USC coach, he has definitely put his imprint on recruiting locally. He offered Chaminade quarterback Brad Kaaya, got a commitment from Narbonne linebacker Uchenna Nwosu and offered St. John Bosco wide receiver Shay Fields. He definitely seems to be making up for lost time because I doubt these offers would have happened so fast under Lane Kiffin.

    November 28th, 2013 – Thanksgiving Team Dinner – “Gosh..Ed Orgeron is serving pecan pie for dessert….I doubt that they would have been served anything but pumpkin pie under Lane Kiffin”……..How much longer do you intend to compare the past with the present???……

      As long as all you cynics understand this is a new team with a new coach and a reason to support the school as we work to have a great year!

      • Trojan Hoarse

        I have no problem supporting the school and team, as I have for the better part of 45 years……I’ll admit that I’m cynical towards Wolfie, but I think that even you would have to admit that his comparative analysis has grown tired and tedious…….

        • rusoviet

          Yeah but then you – me – others seem drawn to post n’est pas? Worst are all the haters who squat here and post the same vitriol and unceasing hatred towards Troy. It is a shame there is not an ‘ignore’ feature available.

          • Trojan Hoarse

            I like your idea of having an “ignore” feature, or some other type of filter on this blog…….

          Why don’t you try being cynical towards an athletic department that gave us the most unqualified coach in SC history?

          • Trojan Hoarse

            The last time I checked, a coaching change was made…we now have more qualified coach, no?…. with perhaps an even better one, in the near future, no?…..I have my own opinions about the athletic department at USC and I’ve discussed them personally with Pat……I’m willing to give him another year or two….but that’s my own choice, one which I doubt that you or many of the other trolls share… and I’m ok with that…….

        Little late for a “great year” when you are eliminated from the BCS in the first week in September. Salvaging a bad season is what an interim coach does.

        • rusoviet

          Suit yourself – I couldn’t be happier – one who had no business as HC and demonstrated that repeatedly was finally fired and gives alums and fans a single focus victory in every game ‘because’ no need to root for defeat i.e. Kiffin is gone!

    Memo to Scott. USC has lost 20 rides and will have lost 30 by the time next LOI Day rolls around. That’s a lot of options the Trojans never had.

    What is it about easy math you don’t understand?

    It’s not the offers that count. It’s the number and quality of the signees. USC has no depth, no margin for error, which affects practices and overall team confidence. Simple to see, regardless of how USC is “acting,”

    Making up for lost time? USC can’t begin to do that until they are out of NCAA jail and until they have their new coach.

    Scott, it’s a new day, come join us, the past really sucks. Anything about the game to share?

    Don’t know how anyone can question Coach O’s recruiting decisions.

    • gotroy22

      Especially after his recruits for the defense gave up 62 points last week.

      • The Capper

        Don’t confuse recruiting with coaching.

        • Trojan Hoarse

          He’s an expert at doing that….. trust me..

  • WEB_Dupree

    Wolf should elaborate on that final sentence. Is he saying that Kiffin was too slow and cautious about making offers in general, or that Kiffin did not like these particular prospects?

    Ed Orgeron is a decorated recruiter and who ever he feels is worthy of a Scholarship to USC then I’m sure they deserve it. I will always use former Trojan Mike Patterson as an example of Orgeron being able to spot Talent that nobody else was high on, Patterson ended up being a # 1 draft pick after being ignored by most because he was 5’11″ 270lbs coming out of High School.
