If USC gets the No. 1-ranked recruiting class, as expected, maybe his new nickname should be Steve Total-Successian. Especially with blowout victories over Arkansas State and Idaho to start the season.
USC offensive coordinator Clay Helton is one of six candidates for Tennessee’s vacant job, according to Nashville radio station WNML. The others are Michigan sport administrator Mike DeBord, Tennessee wide receivers coach Zach Azzanni, North Carolina State offensive coordinator Matt Canada, USC offensive coordinator Clay Helton, UCLA offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone and former Florida offensive coordinator Kurt Roper.
The plus side is Helton would actually call plays (unless you include the Notre Dame game according to walk-on QB Anthony Neyer). He would probably need to take a pay cut with USC’s generou salaries. But it would probably be worth it to actually run an offense.
Pete Carroll was asked at the Super Bowl if tailback Marshawn Lynch missed a chance to communicate with the fans:
“I think that you’re seeing a demonstration of a guy being himself and not being what everybody wants him to be. That is why you will continue to hear our players support him. He’s trying to do the best job he can of being him, and maybe you don’t feel that that’s what he should do, but that is what is going on.
The No. 2-ranked USC men’s volleyball team swept No. 11 Long Beach State tonight, 25-17, 25-18, 25-19 , to improve to 6-0 overall. Robert Feathers led USC with eight kills while hitting .600 to lead the Trojans at the Galen Center.
USC moved up one spot to No. 2 nationally in Rivals.com’s recruiting rankings. Florida State dropped from No. 2 to No. 4 after a decommitment. At this point, the Trojans seem poised to have the No. 1 class.
