    I believe the word you were looking for was “how” not “have”. You’re welcome Scotty.

    SC recruits itself, sadly, it can’t coach itself

    • Paul Muad’dib

      I heard that the letters to recruits go out Hogwarts style with no help from the coaching staff. All the coaches have to do is wait next to the fax machine for the letters of intent to roll in. That’s how they have so much extra time to practice special teams.

    • Tebow_Obama

      I don’t know about that, a lot of the close games the Trojans had this past season, were won on sheer talent alone because the coaching was definitely second rate and not doing the team a damn bit of good.

  • FightOn!

    Can Wolf get a GA to help him with his posts?

    • Paul Muad’dib

      I don’t think he can. USC edits itself though, so its okay.

    • Tebow_Obama

      A lot of the geniuses here that claim to be Trojans, that supposedly went to USC, can’t spell worth a crap.

  • LamontRaymond

    Hire more recruiting staff, USC! Don’t shoot for top 5. With a university as prestigious academically as USC is, and with our location and football tradition, there’s little reason for us ever coming in outside the top 2 or 3 annually. It’s not like we’re cash poor. Let’s go, Nikias! Show some leadership in this area.

    • Jack B

      I think recruiting is all about needs. Sometimes, a program just doesn’t have the numbers to fill to rank in the top 3, no matter who they sign.

      And rankings are just wild guesses anyway. Guys like Zach Banner was literally a 5-star/6.1 recruit. We all know he was never even remotely that talented and played more like a 2-star when it came to protecting the edge.

      Assuming you respect your staff’s prospect evaluation ability, the best way to critique your school’s efforts is to look at how many targets they signed, who they lost and who was brought in at the end to fill positions that were left wanting. Overall prospect offers is another way to get a handle on things, though that can also be highly misleading and overlooks “sleeper” signees who will turn out better than the high-star guys.

      • Tebow_Obama

        “I think recruiting is all about needs.”

        Gee, Ya think?

  • Gabby

    Hey wolf, start focusing on recruiting and quit b*itching about petty coaching issues. Give us some relevant info.

  • Guest.user73

    It is creepy here. A long time commenter just notified me that someone (another user) addressed him by his given name, which he does use on this forum. Very few of his friends know his user name and identity. This is the type of cyber stalking you read about before someone SWATS someone . He has deleted his account and I agree with him.

    • Sandy Underpants

      I didn’t know Gabby was such a chicken.

      • Guest.user73

        Not saying who left or who did the cyber snooping and being honest I only know one other commenter personally. He’s an Old Trojan I am a trojan dude. I walked away and he took it up now he’s away and I’m back . I don’t know Gabby nor do I think my friend does. I created this account/name so my friend and I can comment as we see fit.
        Given the mindset of the world neither of us wants some weird Bruins fan stalking us. I don’t answer my phone without knowing the caller. Leave a message of you want me. I don’t open attachments in email without talking to the sender. I’ve only had a couple of viruses in the 30 years or more since my Osborn computer. I don’t like taking chances.

        • Sandy Underpants

          Seriously, why the paranoia? I hate to burst the imaginary bubble you’re living in, but nobody cares about you. I have more viruses on my genitals right now, than you’ve had in your computer over the last 30 years, and I don’t care, I’ll take care of it when I get the time. You can’t possibly live with this much fear. Take a minute to make up a real handle instead of Guest69 and answer blocked calls (unless you’re in collections), live a little. There’s really not as much to be afraid of as the news leads you to believe.

          • Guest.user73

            Well SU you are right nobody cares about me. It’s the money in my bank account that they care about. As cyber criminals have emptied my account twice. Once using a cloned card and once an inside job at the bank. The first time we thought we had messed up and quickly deposited more money, which was gone in an hour. I can tell you stories about bank efficiency, such as “can you prove you were not at LAX and Portland Maine withdrawing cash at the same time?”
            Take care of those viruses and hang up on robo-callers

    The blogger is setting himself up so he can pat himself on the back with an “I told you so”

  • USC jojo

    Top five things sw needs to fix in order to become a better ”Inside” blogger.

    1. Move out of his mother’s basement
    2. Dump charlie, ted, beefcake, whatever his name is.
    3.Get top quality NBA coaching to help him get real inside info.
    4. Ditch Windows Millennium and get a program with auto spell
    check.
    5. Let sw be sw.

    • Sas

      6. Stop wearing soccer jersey’s

  • Jack B

    We don’t come here for recruiting info, SW. That’s taken care for us in other places.You’re strictly 2nd hand.

    We can’t even come here for new asst coach info because you have no inside stuff whatsoever.

    You bagged on USC for being way behind for many months. Now that USC looks like it might kill it, as usual, you’re all over anything negative you can find to blot out USC’s incredible drawing power as well as the superior, hard working recruiters USC does have on staff.

    Too bad SW. You lost again. And it’s “how many”, not “have many”, by the way.

    • Tebow_Obama

      “We don’t come here for recruiting info, SW. That’s taken care for us in other places.You’re strictly 2nd hand.”

      Did you think that up all by yourself or did you have help with that too?

      LOL!

  • David Keeling

    No, it matters if they can develop the talent they work with enough to where they don’t look lost on the field and make mistakes.

  • Sas

    Athlon sports has Barkley of Penn State going #1 to Cleveland.
    Darnold #2 to N.Y. Giants.
    Rosen #4 also to Cleveland.

    • LamontRaymond

      Would love to see Sammy at the Meadowlands and Rosen in that pit…..

      • Sas

        Me three! (Me too)

    • Jack B

      IMO, Darnold or Rosen will go #1. It’s a QB-driven league. Those are the guys you build around. Both the Browns and the Giants need QBs bad. A great RB is great. But not as good as a great QB.

      • Sas

        I agree with that. Barkley is gonna make a nice chunk of change as a high pick. And to think that the experts used to say that the days of RBs in the 1st ROUND were done. But yeah, QBs are still in demand and those two are pretty darn good.

      • Brent4c

        Actually if you are Clev and have 2 top 4 picks getting the clear top RB or pass rusher makes sense. At #4 they will happily take SD or Rosen. Barkley probably not there at #4

    • Cloud Shaman

      They should take Minka Fitzpatrick

      • Sas

        Minkah Fitzpatrick is a good Corner and I wouldn’t bet against him playing up to those standards.

    • JustOwns

      Rosen would never play for Cleveland because…..

      1) Terrible team owner/mgmt.
      2) Hue Jackson SUCC’s. (1 or 2 – 32) in last two years.
      3) Zero O/Line
      4) Zero Future
      5) Rosen would sit out the year and earn a Master’s.

      • Sas

        If might if Barkley joins.

        • JustOwns

          Sammy, most anything is possible, but Rosen to Cleveland is highly improbable.

          • Sas

            He might. My bad.

      • gotroy22

        So in other words it would be just like his old team.

      • Pasadena Trojan

        Squatter, when he does go to Cleveland, he will be used to the conditions from his previous stint at ugly aka Thug U aka Cleveland in training.

      • Independent_George

        If Cleveland really does take Barkley at #1, Rosen would be a bigger fool then assumed if he were to refuse Cleveland at #4.

        225 lbs RBs with 4.5 speed who can line up in the slot do not grow on trees. In fact, they come around every decade or so.

        • Brent4c

          The next Leveon Bell

  • Tebow_Obama

    Josh Allen (Best QB in college football this past season) will be the first QB taken in the upcoming NFL Draft.

    • Sas

      4th QB taken. He’ll be the 4th.

      • Tebow_Obama

        Josh Allen will have by far a better NFL career playing the QB position than Darnold and Rosen.

        • Sas

          I wouldn’t bet on it.

    • Chris

      Clown!

      • Tebow_Obama

        Is that your first or last name?

      • gotroy22

        Mel Kiper Jr says you are the clown.

  • Tebow_Obama

    Ronald Jones is a better RB than Saquon Barkley.

  • Mike R

    Maybe it’s just me, Scooter, but it feels like you forgot some words there.

    • Pasadena Trojan

      What the heck did he say? I guess he was trying a new language form from ugly called, forgetting train of thought and applying it to words.

    • Tebow_Obama

      A lot of the supposed Trojan alum that comment here in this forum missed it because their grammar and reading comprehension isn’t any better.

      LOL!

      • Pasadena Trojan

        Ask Billy Joe Jackson about reading and writing. Oh, I forgot, you have never heard of him. He went to ucla to play football back in 1975. He played, however, there was a slight small problem, he could neither read or write. But ugly took him anyways.

        • Tebow_Obama

          O.J. Simpson and USC set the precedent with the same scenario.

          What else do you have?

  • Sandy Underpants

    Swann should fire everybody and watch SC become the first team in NCAA history to win 10 games without a coaching staff.
