Rasheem Green Goes Pro

The defensive lineman announced that he will go pro. Big loss for the defense. This will hurt because Green was a hybrid. He could play defensive tackle but had the athleticism of a defensive end. The defense will return Cameron Smith and Iman Marshall but opposing teams will be more relieved to hear Green going pro.

    Next man standing…Oh never mind, Clay Helton’s too busy signing quarterbacks, and receivers

    • gotroy22

      Rasheem and his jihad on Pac 12 quarterbacks will be missed.

      • Pudly76

        Wished we’d have seen play this season healthy, dude was hell on wheels with just one shoulder.

    • Sas

      He’s too busy allowing Defensive Coordinators to call shots and stay home when they should be banging on doors of players that might feel disrespected from him not recruiting them and are worthy of a spot at USC.

      • peter

        My friend, the only area of recruiting we have fallen short this year seems to be OL. The Defensive seems to be excellent past 2 years. Its worked. This years class will be loaded on D.

        • Sas

          No argument there. Just that Pendergast has been average and doesn’t recruit.

    • steveg

      I get your point Fred and I don’t know if you know it or not, but there isn’t anyone but Sewell out there. Do we waste scholies on guys that are marginal and available?

      • Jack B

        Problem is, USC targeted the wrong guys early. That was the killer. There were plenty of OLs who could have really helped the Trojans, but USC went after some of the wrong guys and didn’t pay attention to the tea leaves. Now, we need a Hail Mary.

      • Fred Sampson

        Develop the lower rated players, Michigan State does it year after year, because the coaches have an eye for talent

    • peter

      Fred, your smarter than that. This years class, along with last is loaded on D. Where we suck and this year won’t be better is OL. 1 QB last year, 2 wr. 1QB this year maybe 2 wr.
      There certainly is much that can be laid on Helton,QB and WR signings are not problem areas.

      • Fred Sampson

        Signings will never be a problem with USC, but developing players has, so highly decorated high school players don’t mean a thing, until they hit the field

    • SucKiffin

      2018 is going to be a disaster

  • SucKiffin

    Maybe Falcons will draft him … their O needs help lol
    Falcon fans wanna kill Sark , that born loser just needs to go away
    Just getting drilled on their boards
    and deservingly so
    Guy is just a moron

    • gotroy22

      Where are the rah rahs to defend Sark?

      • Sas

        What’s happening with Sark?
        Sorry if I’ve missed the obvious, but it’s been a long week and long day also.

        • gotroy22

          • Sas

            Got it.

          • gotroy22

            ATL was shut out in the second half…

          • Sas

            Sark looks bad for sure and undeserving of being able have so many great gigs, but ATL and Matt Ryan are big time letdowns.

          • steveg

            So Sark goes back to college ball with his pro experience. Unreal.

          • Pat

            No one is hiring this loser … unless some who cares type dump like Kiffy

          • gotroy22

            Never underestimate the power of nepotism. Norv Turner just got another gig.

          • Sas

            Mountain Conference team down the road maybe.

          • gotroy22

            He fails upward!

          • Sas

            Get this Pete Carroll was almost gonna hire him after the playoffs were over. Or rumored. But not now.

          • Pat

            Pete is the only reason this pile ever has a job … guy stains every place he goes just like his boy pal Kiffy
            Worst frauds in coaching history
            Falcon boards are just brutalizing the Snark ‘ the poor me I’m in rehab ‘ crap doesn’t work in the NFL

    • steveg

      Yet somehow they get into the playoffs. Go figure.

      • Jack B

        Sark called a good game. Julio Jones lost the game for ATL. I couldn’t care less about Sark and am just glad he’s not with USC. But Jones missed a late game winner that will haunt him for awhile, I’m sure.

        • Brent4c

          The ball went right through Julios hands…I suppose that’s Sarks fault.

          • Jack B

            Some people here hate Sark and Kiffin (as well as Haden) with such a passion, that they live for anything to blame them for. There’s some deep, deep hurt there. It’s kind of funny actually.

          • SucKiffin

            they r a joke .. watching their F ups are hilarious

          • gotroy22

            ZERO points in the second half isn’t the OC’s fault? Is that just “bad luck”?

          • Brent4c

            Well I’ve heard it’s the OL fault, Heltons fault, now I guess it’s Tees fault. In a sport w 11 guys on each side of the ball it’s rarely ever 1 entities fault. Our TO killed us in the game. Blame whomever you want for those, but they were killer

    • Jack B

      Did Sark and Kiffin kill somebody in your family? They must have really hurt you for you to be so obsessed with them both. If they only cared about how much they have affected your life.

      • SucKiffin

        Killed USC football is all

        • Jack B

          Get over it. What a crock. USC won an amazing Rose Bowl and finished #3 in the country the year after Sark was fired. Some kill job.

          I still say he must have burned your house down, you’re so obsessed with the dude. Sark basically owns you. So does Kiffin. They both live rent free in your head 24/7.

          • SucKiffin

            Do you love the Snark ?

  • FranklinTrojan

    Man, Green and Nwosu combined for 20 sacks last year, won’t be easy to replace them. Time for Gustin and Rector to step up!

    • Sas

      Gusting looked good early then went down for the count. Rector had moments too. But yeah you are right because we’ll be leaning on them and expecting big production.

    • steveg

      USC defense is still going to be lights out. Time to reload!!

    • Jack B

      Our D will be fine, maybe superior. It’s our horrible OL that always caves against good comp that kills the Trojans.

  • Sas

    If anyone’s stock went up it was Green. I don’t know the facts of his draft status but he had a really good year. I was hoping he’d stay but this was something we shouldn’t be surprised or shocked from. Good luck to Rasheem, he was a Bruin born kid and we were fortunate to have him for three seasons and he made me proud to have him in Cardinal and Gold.

    Fight On Rasheem!!!!!!

    • steveg

      Looking back, the only areas that really didn’t get better this last season was DB and O line. The rest of the team seemed to get better individually.

      • Sas

        Yep

      • Chris

        Unfortunatley, Sam regressed.

  • Sandy Underpants

    I still hadn’t confirmed if he was a current Trojan football player or a lineman from the 1976 Pittsburgh Steelers.

    • USC jojo

      Clue: Joe

        2nd clue: Mean

  • Sas

    NOT DEFENDING SARK…….

    But when does Matt Ryan own up to being the overhyped choker?

    Last year’s Super Bowl is still an all time choke job for games in the bag.

    • Jack B

      Ryan threw a perfect pass to Julio Jones in the corner which went right through both hands for the game winner. Jones was the choker today, that’s for sure.

      • Pat

        the second incomplete fade with his feet OB … ya great call even rolled out to do it lmao welcome to jr high
        Almost like the 2nd down shovel pass lmao
        You got to hand it to that life time loser Sarky … he continues to out stupid himself wherever he goes

        • Jack B

          So you deny Julio Jones blew it. You obviously didn’t see the play.

      • Linkster

        he Was out of bounds if he caught it.

        • Jack B

          He didn’t have to be. He also fell down on his cut. The point is, it was a great throw which could have been a part of NFL PO lore. But Julio dropped the ball today, regardless of his greatness.

    • SucKiffin

      Sark ruins every qb
      Leinart hated his senior year
      Booty sucked
      Sanchez could had been unreal in 2008 , Pete’s most talented team
      Locker went to crap
      Kessler sucked
      Snark is a qb killer

  • rusoviet

    Clay…hey Clay! Now what? Look time to ‘play the man’ yeah it’s ‘show time’ Clay. No more Sam now it’s all on you. First thing Clay you better get up and retain the squad you have as well as lock down those recruits you’re truly good at snagging. This is going to go fast…a mere 34 weeks from today you’ll face Stanford and, alas, a mere 7 days hence TX @ TX.

    “To arms! Vanquish the knaves! All power to the soviets!”

    • Michael Guarino

      These standings look pretty good to me —-meaning USC’s schedule looks anything but easy in 2018. We could conceivably be breaking in a new signal caller along with a new QB as we play highly rated Stanford and Texas in early away games.
      By the way, Alv —did you notice (or care) that USC made the top 10 in the final Coaches’ Poll?

      • steveg

        SC over ND? Has to upset Kelly, a lot.

        • Michael Guarino

          I hope so.

        • SucKiffin

          That’s a tough sell .. ND could had won by 50 if they wanted to

      • rusoviet

        I don’t know ….. look it wouldn’t be that tough if we showed any real effort against both the Irish and OH St…..we didn’t and it is highly unlikely we ever shall under Clay Helton. The guy is clueless and tough luck for him if he can’t win next September. He’s had this gig for over 2 years now at $3 million a year – screw Helton if he can’t assemble a tough assistant coaching staff let alone prepare, with 4 weeks, for OH St.. ‘blank’ Helton – win or get out Clay….you’ll get no sympathy from any follower of this storied program let alone from your peers. Why should you? Learning to be a ‘head coach’ because you never have been one before lazy corrupt Pat Haden gave it to you.

    • SucKiffin

      Haha .. it’s going to be ugly
      1991 ugly

  • Pasadena Trojan

    Hunter Echols will play this year. He is a redshirt who will do well

  • Joe football

    its time for jay tufele to step up

  • Jack B

    TENN looks like the worst team tonight to ever make the NFL POs. Crazy bad. Both the Rams and the Chargers are far superior to these guys. So much for the idea that a playoff always brings together the best teams.

  • dirtmover

    Although a loss – I’m not as concerned with this one. With Marlon / Jay / Brandon / Jimmons / Rector as a core with the other pieces I think the D line will actually be one spot that is better next yr.

  • BBScBaby

    I am surprised Wolf didn’t say wait until Green gets to the Nfl so he can be coached up.
