USC returns to practice today for the Cotton Bowl. The practices are not lighter than during the regular season, which will relieve those obsessed with such matters.
But an NFL scout recently complained to me that USC practices this season were not especially rigorous.
“This looks like a high school practice,” he said.
In other news, Mater Dei QB JT Daniels said over the weekend he would return for his senior season and not attempt to reclassify. It’s almost gross to write the word “reclassify” but after Marvin Bagley did it over the summer, it seems to be a part of high school athletics.
