USC Morning Buzz: Breaking Down The Coaching Candidates

HELTON.WHITTINGHAMI put together a list of USC coaching candidates after talking to various sources around Heritage Hall. And I put the pros and cons of each. Here’s an excerpt:

Kyle Whittingham, Utah

Pros: Whittingham gets portrayed as a life-long Utah native but actually lived in Glendora until the eighth grade. He knows the Pac-12, knows Southern California, knows how to coach, and wins with less talent.

Cons: He makes so much sense, he hasn’t got a chance.

    I’m surprised Wof hasn’t mentioned the article ESPN put out yesterday about USC and more surprised he hasn’t mentioned Tim Tessalone’s quote about $100 donors.

    • YOLO 4 SC

      He might as well have mentioned Wolf and the trolls on this blog by their screen names!

    • Jack B

      Oh, gee! I guess we’re gonna lose all our $100 donors now! What a shame.

      Run for the hills. USC’s gonna go broke. I agree with Tessalone. The Baby Donors (Wolfie should love that) have no power, never have and never will. The Coliseum is not being revamped for them. Duh.

      • NYC Bruin

        I tend to agree with you, but it’s probably not something you want coming out of the your SID’s mouth to ESPN.

        • Jack B

          Tessalone’s just saying what everybody knows. I guarantee you, nobody really inside SC cares a lick. They know where their bread is buttered. SC’s fully a cash cow nowadays. There’s always more where that came from. Does 1 mil even get you a 2 X 3 plaque at HH anymore? Maybe on the ground somewhere.

      • UCLA owns LA Football

        Not true, the new and improved mausoleum handrails are for the $100 donors.

        • USC Rah Rah’s Rule

          Don’t forget the stainless steel trough urinals….

            If you fall in you end up riding the rapids of the Los Angeles River all the way to Long Beach.

        • just got a text from Johnny Chingas (he is scouring the Orient for bargains)….he found some Fukushima lead rails for $7 a ton and a sweeeeet deal for Chinese plastic seats (recycled from diapers)!!

          that Mausoleum is gonna be looking SWEEEEET

      Why would Wolfie bring attention to himself as a simple blogger who could never put together a thorough piece (with named sources) like that? Wolfie supposedly covers USC and he doesn’t know diddly. Put your thinking cap on. Watch. Now Wolfie will mention the article. He just has to figure how to work it into his very limited content.

      • NYC Bruin

        Fair point.

    • marvgoux1

      I’m surprised you complain about Wolf when you own blog is pathetic.

  • YOLO 4 SC

    If those are the options (which they appear to be), we should stay with Helton and keep everybody on staff that can coach and recruit.

    Great article by Wolfy, written in the style of an 8th grade valley girl.

    • USC Rah Rah’s Rule

      TOTALLY……….

      • steveg

        The trolls only comprehend at 8th grade level. He has to keep them or the blog gets cancelled.

  • peter

    Straight to the TMZ sports page.Not once is there mention of football. X/O s
    Many cons have to do with trashing former coaches.
    Most USC followers could write a much more informative article.
    Tell us which coaches would bring out the physical style of football we need to return to? Which ones motivate . With CAL tomorrow early, any Football to talk about?

    • YOLO 4 SC

      Heton is the man – he’s already made huge changes with practice formats by bringing out the toughness of these players – cant wait to see more!

      • peter

        I too can’t wait to see more.That’s why I just want football right now.With CAL’s style of football we will have another big piece to observer. A much different style than Utah , Heltons adjustments will be interesting to see.Practices have been very physical , USC football. Something tells me if we win out, many former players (Marcus.. And others) will support him big time.Personally I’m a fan watching football game at a time.

      • B.Miller

        Gotta get rid of Wilson or change is passive Coaching style

        • YOLO 4 SC

          Agree – no passive bullsht – no more bright uniforms, no more finesse offense – I wanna see more of Juju throwing dudes out of bounds, and a hard hitting D

        • Goatboy Kiffin

          So you make the mistake of keeping Chip Hilton , do you keep that mooching worthless Snarknado staff too … who does Hilton know that is any good that would want to be an assistant to him.
          Haden hire a real football coach , you will be suprised how many game SC can win

          • B.Miller

            WHO? Who is Chip Hilton and Snarknado?

      • steveg

        Again, relax on Helton. If he loses against Cal you still going to go bananas over him?

        • YOLO 4 SC

          If he loses to Cal then he should be fired on the spot – haha – he wont lose

        • Goatboy Kiffin

          no kidding … a former assistant to Goat Kiffin and Snarknado, who coaches offense just like they do … our new head coach , FIRE HADEN on the spot if that happens

    • B.Miller

      I keep saying it.. Wolf is the diva of sports writing.. If TMZ had a sports section.. Wolf would be head to run it.. due to is Diva drama writing..

      • USC Rah Rah’s Rule

        Do you follow Scott on Twitter?…..It can occasionally be entertaining…

        • B.Miller

          HE belongs on TMZ

      • Jack B

        Not even remotely true. TMZ people work their fannys off to come up with dirt and they’re damn good at it. See the problem there?

        • USC Rah Rah’s Rule

          Yes, I do…. Scott’s big fanny is still there!!!!

  • WEB_Dupree

    Wolf got through that whole list without hyping Mike Riley. This really is a new era.

    Good stuff, Wolfie!

    • steveg

      That was a great shot at Haden.

    • john holmes

      Makes so much sense he lost to 2 Interim USC coaches

  • john holmes

    In what world does Whittingham make so much sense? His conference record is horrible and he lost to not 1 but 2 Interim USC coaches. NO

  • Fred Sampson

    Can we get a coach that is confident enough to feature the run, with an established tailback? Is it that difficult to do at USC anymore? Because the Trojans have turned into a weak finesse , bubble screen University, which is usually the sign of a weak coach, that feels he has to win with mirrors.
