    Buzzword Clay Helton is now stuck on "strong". We have heard him previously stuck on others like "power", "physical", "run-first", and "fight". What do you think the buzzwords will be next season?

    Not sure what next years buzz will be, but I am sure they will be some real football type slogans. Since he can't coach tough, disciplined, physical teams, he needs to be able to at least talk about it. Maybe even visualize it.

    I apologize in advance I did not read the article.

    It probably is similar to past ones where clueless clay uses some vague coach speak to describe how he’s preparing the team for battle and when none of it shows up on the field, he’ll whip out that tired old line- we’ll have to look at the tape.

    It is getting difficult for me as a fan to walk the fine line between supporting the players on the team while at the same time wanting to upgrade the coaching staff.

    I feel bad for the reporters covering the team knowing that the head coach, athletic director and others have outright lied and then having to present that in a positive way to not hurt the players, parents, alumni and fan base and show recruits there is hope and why they should commit to USC.

    And don't forget the old reliable "to be honest with you."

    I am guessing that the new buzz phrase next year will be right out of "The Music Man". The THINK SYSTEM.

    Whatever the result, Clueless will be proud of his team for “fighting like warriors...”

    Iowa is favored to win despite SC holding a quasi home-field advantage because they gots the defense and we ain't got none...

    Still, I am a Trojan to the bone, and I feel has not seen a passing attack quite like what SC is about to unleash upon them, and those hawkeyes may turn into black-eyes by game over.

    Next year: "Although this year didn't go exactly as we wanted, now that we finally have the support we need, we are laying the foundation for a return to bowl eligibility."
