    Very well deserved. He worked hard in the off-season, and has had a terrific year. Created a lot of yardage on his own. He should get a lot of yards tomorrow against UCLA.

      At least 150…

    • Russ Taylor

      Something like 250 I suspect!!! Fight ON!!

    This is all a product of McCullough. He is the best hire and coach on this staff.. His passion and intensity for the RB position and the knowledge he is passing on is grade A.. There are no other coaches on this USC staff this passionate and it shows in his coaching, and in his interviews..
    Wish Bradford taught the DB position just like this..

    • Michael Guarino

      Agreed. If the DB’s played with the intelligence, drive and intensity of the RB’s we’d be in the damn playoffs. Hats off to McCullough. He made a difference.

  • Jack B

    Congrats to RoJo. He really picked up his game and McCullough deserves some big-time credit I think. Enjoy hearing him talk about football. Great hire by Helton. Hope he makes some more.

      McCullough is the unsung hero on the staff.

    Ronald Jones…he’s better than any running back that will be up for the Heisman this year.

    • Lunderful

      I put him at a tie with Saquon Barkley of Penn State. They are both special people and athletes.

      • Tebow_Obama

        Ronald Jones was 13 yards shy of a 1,000 as a true freshman, hasgone well iver 1,000 yards last year and this year. Jones yds per avg is over 6.

        Saquon and his numbers don’t even compare. And Saquon has had the better offensive line to run behind.

  • Tebow_Obama

    Imagine if Ronald Jones had a really good offensive line in front of him…WOW! If only.

  • Pete Smith

    Great job ROJO

  • StokaNoka

    I think the only thing giving him a chance at winning is averaging 200+ yards and 2-3 TDs the next two games. But he’s better than any RB in the country IMO

    Where is Soso Jamabo name?

    • gotroy22

      He’s 4th string for the ruins right now.

      • Gabby

        Is he in the dog house or lack of performance?

  • Pasadena Trojan

    And the winner is Ronald Jones. Congratulations.

  • Paul Muad’dib
