If There Is A New Football Coach, It Must Be Time To Praise Strength Coach

I have covered four USC football coaching changes (not counting all that interim nonsense last season) and every time a new guy assumes the job, the lazier media types write breathless reports of how the new strength coach is better than his predecessor and how the team is benching more than it ever did before. Or how innovative the new workouts are.

I’m still waiting for the first comment that workouts are actually easier under a new coach. But I won’t hold my breath.

    Wolf, you say this every season. Doesn’t matter whether there’s a coaching change or not.

    • The only time I’ve ever heard or read anything to the effect of ‘the new strength coach is amazing’ is from Wolf. I think he’s just quoting himself at this point.

      • Faux Bucket……oh, forget it.

        Bucket, he does this same thing every year. EVERY year.

        • rusoviet

          It doesn’t mean he is wrong.

  • TrojanFamily

    It’s the same as in MLB Spring Training–each player is in the “best shape of his life” when camp begins; every player injured last year “is stronger than ever and will definitely be ready by the start of the season.”

    Seems like Wolf should watch Bull Durham and spend a little time with Crash Davis on cliches.

  • B.Miller

    Did you, Scott “Copy and Paste” Wolf, just call someone “lazy media”? I would like to hear how the team is performing under the new strength coach, and offseason workouts (with pics provided).. which for an “Inside USC” Blog, you give absolutely NO information on.. But you can write about how the rain is affecting your view of downtown?

    Wolf.. Please Proof Read before posting to your blog.. “I have covered fo four USC football coaching changes”

        • SUCC de trop

          Helen’s your daughter? That makes sense. The road apple didn’t fall far from the pig.

          • Joseph B. Lowe

            You should know, there’s no bigger uglier pig than your wife.

          • SUCC de trop

          • Joseph B. Lowe

          • steveg

            Why you gotta be an a-hole. We are having a great time ripping Wolf. Was that over your little head?

          • SUCC de trop

      • Larry Harris

        You were watching the Oscar’s? How macho of you.

        Big, fat and ugly? Like that would matter. What burns your hemorrhoidal orifice besides a flame approximately 1 meter high, is
        peer respect…She obviously has it, you? Well, need I have to restate the obvious?


    Wolf are you referring to George F. Will?

    • gotroy22

      Gary Klein aka cheapo seat.

  • ScottWolfSniffsHisOwnFarts

    Lazier media types??? Gargamel, you define lazy! You must not think “copying and pasting” links to marginally tangential USC-related articles, persistent whining, writing inane “quick thoughts” and conducting idiotic polls is not lazy, If that is the case, then who and what do you define as lazy? You are so lazy that you can not be bothered even spell check your work, and routinely butcher the English language. So lazy, that you do not provide any “inside” information on this blog or in your reporting. Basically, you absolutely suck at your job.

    Scott beats on a lot of issues.

    How about: Why doesn’t USC find out what Turley is doing at Stanford, and then copy it?

    Turley has been written up in the NY Times, Pac-12 Blog on ESPN, and by Stanford itself.

    Stanford has fewer injuries, and it is commonly credited to innovative, position-specific stretching and strengthening. Yet they manage to play “physical” football.

    Does USC use these methods? Why or why not?
