    Does that include Stanford’s Heisman hopeful Bryce Love who announced he would forsake NFL riches and return?

    • GABBY702

      I didn’t know love was coming back, thanks for the info……he’s looking for some Heisman Hardware. With love back, Stanford looks to be the early-season favored to win the Pac-12 North

      “Unfinished business”

      • steveg

        Stanford has nobody to compete with them. Their trap game will be Cal.

        • GABBY702

          And their game the next week is against the Huskies, could be an interesting two game stretch

      • Globehead

        Stanford will never win another Heisman. No matter how good their guy is he’ll never beat out the top SEC/Big 10/Big 12 player.

        • gotroy22

          With most of their games on at 10:45 PM EST it will be difficult. But since Love made the Heisman ceremony, he will have the necessary preseason name recognition to make him an early front runner. If our vaunted 2018 defense shuts him down, he will drop out of the running.

  • GABBY702

    Who are the four starters we lose on defense, I count three

    • hoohoolianFUCLA

      I’d guess you’re not counting Fatu with Hawkins, Uchenna and Green.

      • Tebow_Obama

        Gabby can barely make change for a nickel for services rendered to her clientele down on W. 41st & Figueroa and you expect her to add numbers up to equal 7?

        • hoohoolianFUCLA

          At least he doesn’t feel the need to repeat the same inane message over and over and over — except maybe to mock those pathetic people who do.

          • GABBY702

            Thanks for having my back, appreciate it

          • Tebow_Obama

            Maybe you can pay someone to have your crotch, seeing how you keep getting kicked there.

            LMFAO!

          • steveg

            You’ve been crotch kicked so many times you are using your testicles as earrings. Ugly ones at that.

          • GABBY702

            Ouch!

            His buddy killer/gomer sports a set of chin nuts

          • Tebow_Obama

            I know you had help with that one…you’re not clever enough to have come up with it on your own.

            LOL!

          • Tebow_Obama

            Gabby is a “he”?

            LOL!

        • USCDAN1986

          Hey that’s prime property..

          • Tebow_Obama

            And yet she still has no takers.

          • USCDAN1986

            That will all be developed out by the time the Olympics comes to LA.

          • Tebow_Obama

            Looks like Gabby will be kicked to some other curb rather shortly then.

          • USCDAN1986

            Booty’s venture cap co.. Has several projects going into the area of LA.

          • Tebow_Obama

            Yes, I heard. Good for J D B. Seriously, good for him.

      • GABBY702

        Fatu,……..thanks

        He missed a bunch of games and fell off my radar

        • Tebow_Obama

          Gesundheit

          • GABBY702

            Fart!

  • Tebow_Obama

    With Clay Helton back as head coach with that many Trojans returning it will translate into a break even won/loss record for USC at best.

    • GABBY702

      Put your money where your mouth is. Vegas will take ALL your money on a prop bet, that USC only wins 6 games. With that football IQ of yours it sounds like easy money…. just saying

      • Tebow_Obama

        With Clay Helton as USC’s head coach he’s more than capable and uniquely unqualified to have the Trojans finish in the cellar, well below six win capability.

        In other words, that would be a fools bet…maybe you need to anty up.

        LOL!

        • GABBY702

          It’s obvious you don’t know how this works, you’re bet would be 6 wins or less. After pleading your case it sounds like the bet for you…… ante up and don’t look back

          • Tebow_Obama

            “you’re” bet…is it?

            Thanks for playing, simpleton…now run along, this is big business we’re discussing here.

          • GABBY702

            Simpleton?……says the guy who makes the same reply over and over and over. We all laugh at you.

            (It’s called autocorrect, something your dinosaur lacks)

          • steveg

            These guys don’t realize what the defense is going to be like, they are all wrapped up in losing Sam and that the offense will be unable to score. Conversely, it will be the other teams unable to score, SC only needs to score enough to win. Fink or Sears will get the ball to the end zone often.

          • GABBY702

            We led the nation in quarterback sacks and arguably our best pass rusher missed most of the season. From that sack leading defense we’re only losing two starters from the front 7, I’m counting Porter as a starter. Besides Hawkins leadership skills, he can be easily replaced.

            Saban won numerous championships with high-caliber defenses and pedestrian offenses.

          • gotroy22

            Can Rasheem be easily replaced?

          • Sas

            You are right Steve!

          • gotroy22

            And Matt Fink is King of the LA River!

    • steveg

      The defense alone will win 6 games.

      • GABBY702

        It’s hard to argue with stupidity

        • steveg

          Agreed. The guy hates Helton so much it overrides all sense of sensibility.

  • hoohoolianFUCLA

    I wish that UClown D could stay intact, as it is, forever…

    Perhaps, one day, our OC can solve it the way every other team they played did.

  • hoohoolianFUCLA

    One would think some “insider” with a blog would cover that issue…

    • USCDAN1986

      Lol..

  • Golden Trojan

    With a spread of 13-19 and SC at 16, seems pretty balanced, no team with a huge advantage/disadvantage with this stat. Wait, wasn’t the a post not too long ago about how useless stats are?

    • steveg

      Wolf does not believe in stats, as his post shows you. The rest of us do so he tosses us a bone once in a while.

  • Sas

    WE HAVE THE MOST TALENTED ROSTER……

    BUT THE SAME EXACT STAFF……

  • Ben Stearns

    With the current coaching staff, the Trojans will struggle to be bowl eligible…but, hey, Lynn Swann, prefers continuity over success…Ted Tollner, Larry Smith, Paul Hackett, Robo II come to mind…Nobody–at least, who’s being honest–was excited about Pete Carroll’s hiring–me included–but, he woke up the fading echo’s of the Trojan’s glorious past; reminded the faithful USCs place in the historical hierarchy of college football…Kiffin, Sarkisian, Helton–ugh…Tollner, Smith, Hackett, Robo II…? Mike Garret got lucky with Pete…Haden? Seriously? what self-respecting Trojan would spend their falls in a broadcast booth providing insight for Notre Dame football broadcasts…? He shied away from the NCAA over the sanctions; fired Kiffin at LAX after a 62-28 thrashing by Arizona St (Clancy Pendergast was the DC then too), hired coach n”O” temporarily; brought in Sarkisian –why? ( I live in Seattle. They weren’t unhappy to see him go) canned him, and then turned the reigns over to Helton–a very nice guy; comfortable with family and friends of his family…Meanwhile, with new coaching hires in the Pac 12, no changes at USC, life for Trojan Football is going to get tougher…same offensive line coach–pal of Helton’s dad…same defensive coordinator….new QB coach–friend of Helton’s brother…etc…wait until 20…

    • GABBY702

      “he woke up the fading echo’s of the Trojan’s glorious past; reminded the faithful USCs place in the historical hierarchy of college football”

      So true!……..great comment

    • fryer tuck

      We’ll be just fine and compete for a NC Mr. Empty Glass.

  • Jack B

    USC is basically standing pat, while bringing in a strong 2018 recruiting class that could end up light on the OL. Maybe, maybe not.

    No new significant hires and one-year asst K limitations spells trouble. The handwriting is on the wall. Helton’s gonna have to sink or swim. Don’t know how he brings in a new RB asst coach replacement who is any good.

    With a new, inexperienced QB and the same crappy OL talent and OL/DB coaches, I see USC heading to a Holiday Bowl with Helton probably keeping his job if he wins it and beats ucla and ND during the reg season.

    Losses to both ucla and ND would seal his fate. Swann didn’t make this hire and he’s not tied to Helton. But if he sees USC play cleaner ball with less penalties and better player development, Helton might stay even with a worse bowl. But if the team continues to win ugly and looks like it did in 2017, Helton will be outta here and Swann will start over with a new HC and better assts with long term Ks.

    So for now, I’d say Helton is definitely not sitting pretty. He’s unable to bring in any new, sought-after assts and is gonna have to win with what he has.

    I predict a new USC HC for the 2019 season. He’ll come in with some good talent. Interesting to see Swann put the lid on what Helton can do – unless you believe Helton self-imposed his own limitations in the interest of continuity and loyalty.
