USC Trojans Football 2016: Clay Helton has plenty of praise for the Arizona State offense

Helton is pretty impressed with the ASU defense too. USC head coach Clay Helton is happy to be back at the Coliseum after losing 3 of their first four games with all loses coming away from the Coliseum. Helton is happy to play 4 of the next 5 games at home. Helton started off his post practice presser assessing Arizona State and what they did well. Assessment of the ASU offense: Helton was highly impressed with the Sun Devils’ multitude of weapons and their uptempo offense. They have a great rushing quarterback who can also throw the ball well to a very deep and talented group of wide...

Clay Helton and Matt Boermeester joined Trojans Live to talk USC Football

Clay Helton and Matt Boermeester, were on hand discussing Utah and Arizona State. USC head coach Clay Helton once again joined Trojans live, the weekly USC radio show. He discussed feeling sick at halftime against Utah because of the three turnovers to start the game. He was also hopeful because the team had just played their best game of the season and showed improvement. Helton was asked about punting on 4th and 3 at the end of the game. Coach Helton said he trusted his defense with his life and want to force the Utah offense to drive the ball 93 yards down the field. Curiously he was...

USC Trojans Football 2016: Trojans blow a two-touchdown lead to Utah

Another loss for the Trojans The opening drive to start the Sam Darnold era for USC ended with a Justin Davis fumble. Darnold did, however, show some bright spots by avoiding a sack and getting the ball thrown away while also converting a 3rd and 7 by hitting Juju-Smith Schuster. The spark Clay Helton was looking for when he switched quarterbacks. Utah, however, recovered the Justin Davis fumble and ran the ball right down the field for a touchdown. Every single play on the opening drive for Utah was a run play and it resulted in the Utes taking an early 7-0 lead. THE DEUCE GOT...

USC Trojans Football 2016: Adjusting To Sam Darnold at quarterback

The Trojans must alter their gameplan with their new starting quarterback. USC announced earlier this week that redshirt freshman quarterback Sam Darnold has been promoted to the starting quarterback position. Head Coach Clay Helton alluded to the offense needing a spark which is why the change was made. This may be a ploy for him to save the season and his job. Being able to react and make adjustments to adversity really defines coaching ability. He’ll have to alter his gameplan offensively to make it coincide with Darnold’s strengths and abilities. Helton will also have to prepare...

Joel Klatt Claims Chip Kelly was interested in the USC Head coaching job but Pat Haden did not offer

Joel Klatt went on Colin Cowherd to discuss USC Joel Klatt is an analyst for Fox Sports 1. Klatt was on the Colin Cowherd program today discussing the USC Trojans when he stated that Chip Kelly wanted to be the coach of the USC Trojans, or at least was interested. Klatt said he was told from several sources within the program and that he vetted some of the claims and he feels confident that Chip Kelly would have probably taken the USC job had that been an option. When host Colin Cowherd asked why it was not an option Klatt answered that Pat Haden’s insecurities would not allow him to...

The season is not over..... yet

As I am writing this piece, Sam Darnold has just been announced as USC’s starting quarterback and will face Utah on Friday in his first career start. USC is 1-2 on the season, their first 1-2 start since Pete Carroll’s first season with the team (2001 season, team finished 6-6). Those two losses came against two of the top programs in the nation, the defending national champions and a team with the best college player in the country. So, listen to me when I say this USC fans: The season is not over...yet If USC can go into hostile territory and defeat Utah on Friday, they will finish...

USC Football 2016: Back to the Drawing Board

The Trojans are headed back to the drawing board after suffering a disappointing loss against Stanford 27-10. The Trojans are headed back to the drawing board after suffering a disappointing loss against Stanford 27-10. There are many things that could go up on that board, but here are few issues that need to be addressed as soon as possible: Allowing The Big Play Stanford’s first touchdown came on a play-action wheel route from the usual suspect Christian McCaffrey, who scampered up the sideline for 56 yards. Two Trojans were tricked by the run-fake which allowed the Heisman Trophy...

USC falls short against Stanford

The Trojans don't have an answer for McCaffrey and the Cardinal...again. The Trojans started out strong, setting the tone early with defense. However, as we’ve come to expect against Stanford, things took a turn for the worse. Going into the second quarter, there was still ample opportunity for USC, as Christian McCaffrey had been limited from finding any big holes or breakaway runs. Then one play changed everything. McCaffrey was left uncovered and ran for a touchdown off a 56 yard reception. After that, any momentum the Trojans might have had quickly dwindled. Photo by...

Osa Masina charged with rape and sodomy

Days after being completely barred from the USC campus and suspended indefinitely, Osa Masina has been charged. Masina faces one count of first-degree rape and two counts of sodomy, per ESPN’s Kyle Bonagura. Osa’s attorney, Greg Skordas, also confirmed with ESPN that his bail has been set at $25,000. In Utah, first degree felonies can “carry out potential imprisonment,” Skordas explained. All charges stem from the investigation that resulted in Osa being kicked out off school and off the USC football team indefinitely. Teammate Don Hill is still being investigated in relation to...

USC vs. Stanford Keys to Victory

Stanford is a great football team, but they can be beat. Here is how. As USC prepares for another epic battle with the Stanford Cardinal, here are some keys to victory: Stop Contain Christian McCaffrey: Listen, Christian McCaffrey is going to have over 200 total yards against the Trojans. It’s going to happen. He is one of the best (if not the best) players in the nation and he will have a good game. But if USC can contain him which they did do in their first matchup against Stanford last year (McCaffrey had his third lowest yards per carry average of the season against the Trojans), USC...

Opportunity To Make A Statement Comes Again vs Stanford

USC find themselves in another big game this Saturday. This Saturday, the Trojans make their way to Palo Alto, California for a clash with the defending Pac-12 Champs, the Stanford Cardinal. This game with Stanford is the beginning of the road towards their goal to win the Pac-12. The Trojans once again will once again look to make a statement against a top 10 team, but once again will have their hands full. Last week USC came away with the 45-7 victory over Utah St, which provided a pretty good confidence booster before their huge conference opener on the road. While Stanford isn’t as...

USC Football Recap: Hits & Misses

Trojans take care of business against Utah State, but the game was far from ‘perfect.’ Coach Clay Helton admitted afterwards that ‘it wasn’t perfect,’ but his team ‘will take a 45-7 win in the Coliseum.’ It started with a few sloppy moments, but as the Trojans played on under the bright mid-day sun, it turned into a game of big plays. If you didn’t make it out to the Coliseum on Saturday, and the Pac-12 network isn’t part of your TV package, here’s the best and worst from the home opener.

USC Trojans Football: Adoree’ Jackson returns a punt 79 yards for a touchdown

Toa Lobendahn’s Injury a Big Blow to USC

Lobendahn was a versatile and important piece of the USC offensive line. Thursday, it was announced that starting center Toa Lobendahn will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL and MCL. While this is a big blow to a USC offensive line that struggled against Alabama, the damage it could do to Lobendahn’s career is far worse. Lobendahn sat out the second half of last season with the same injury and everyone around the USC program is hoping he can make a full recovery and put these injury issues behind him. That being said, USC’s loss of its starting center is a terrible break. ...
