The Pac-12 South Sinks

When you hear Clay Helton point out again that USC won the Pac-12 South, remember that every other team has at least 3 conference losses. It’s a truly awful division.

By the way, UCLA’s 501 yards in offense was the most allowed by USC since Helton officially took over as the Trojans’ coach.

Discuss The USC-UCLA Game

The crowd was almost silent as time expired. It was that unimpressive. A five-point victory over a 16-point underdog. Clancy Pendergast’s pass coverage is awful. UCLA’s defense gave up its fewest rushing yards of the season (153). Memphis had 162 vs. UCLA.

This was another typical Clay Helton victory. Uninspired and sloppy (11 penalties for 115 yards).

USC Morning Buzz: It’s Crosstown Rivalry Game Day!

The USC-UCLA game is finally upon us. The spread is 16 points. It’s the first and likely last meeting between Sam Darnold and Josh Rosen. But not the last meeting between Clay Helton and Jim Mora.

What will the crowd be? I doubt UCLA fans want to come to the Coliseum in such a dreary season. And USC fans have shown all season they do not turn up in great numbers.

Clown Conference

Did you see on the Pac-12 schedule released yesterday that next year’s conference title game will be on a Friday (Nov. 30).

That’s another sign of a Clown Conference. Not big enough to get your game on Saturday.

Newspaper Notice Of Day

You might associate Chick Hearn as the Lakers legend. But he also did USC football and basketball games from 1956-61 like this notice shows from 1958. The TV announcer is actually spelled Bill Welsh, who also did USC games for KTTV (Channel 11).
