In my analysis today, I look at how USC has gone nine months without a depth chart, the longest period in at least 22 years. There was no spring depth chart and nothing appears imminent until August 27.
Excerpt: History tells us Helton does not always like to make definitive decisions anyways. Remember last year Max Browne was named the starting quarterback but Darnold still played in the Alabama game.
The weird part was Darnold barely played in the loss at Stanford, where he could have made a difference. It turned out to be Browne’s final start at USC and the Darnold legend was born.
