    Helton just doesn't get it. He has been hfc for 4 and 1/2 years. He took talent from previous coaching staff and had two successful seasons. But, the last two years he has had one losing season and is barely 500%. The team gets beat every time they play a team with similar talent, For him to say the team "is almost there" is just an insult to our intelligence. USC should never be "almost there", they should actually be there and playing for conference and NC title.

    See, this is what I was referring to when I posted Dough is a liar.

    This IS a lie!!! We are not close to being a NC team, not in the same stratosphere.

    So one of two things are at play here, either Dough thinks the fans are dumber than a box of shit, or he truly has no idea what a NC caliber team is.
    Personally, I think he knows we aren’t, but is giving the fans the same BS he gives the Administration.

    Either way, it’s fucking insulting.

    So tired of hearing the same old bullshit from this dipshit coach. Wake up and learn some lessons, pay attention to what the great teams are doing and emulate. For sure just shut up and show us actions instead of empty words. All right already!

    More pollyannaish, nonsense from the worst head coach in all of Power 5 football. If he had any ability to read the room, he wouldn't make such bold proclamations that he can't back up. When Bama blows us out, he is going to have to explain how that could happen to a team that is "this close". Of course we will be fed the usual BS- " we were only 23 plays away from winning, the guys fought like warriors, I will look at the film and clean it up, etc".
    Until that fat, lazy, stupid ignorant buffoon is kicked to the curb, I won't give the Athletic Dept. a dime.

    Helton is delusional or a bald-headed liar. We all know this by now. Hate seeing that face first thing Sunday morning -- or any morning. Or any day.

    Greg: how do you keep the transfer portal from becoming a free-for-all, while still allowing players to have similar freedoms as these coaches who think nothing of leaving in the lurch for a bigger, better deal?

    When can we start talking about football and not about our inept head coach?

    I personally do believe Clay on the truth of that statement. USC football is closer than people think.

    Fire Clay and hire Urban and you will see too. One position away from making USC football great again.

    No debate for me. I either make this board happy by not renewing, or make the most important person in my life (my wife) happy by renewing. Easy. I just renewed.

    If we beat Alabama, or even make a close, hard fought contest, then he can make these statements. Until then, I don’t think he has much credibility.

    "Staying positive is one thing, but it wouldn’t hurt to tone down the hyperbole a bit and let things play out. In other words, win games and let the scoreboard do the talking."

    Perhaps we could all agree that this also applies to "staying negative"?

    I rarely criticize our coaches...However, it is baffling that anybody could think that our OL is close to anything. Same for the defense which got shredded last year.

    After 35 years, we’ve decided not to renew. Just can’t take any more of Helton being in over his head. That 5 seats (and TAF) expense that will be put toward our quickly approaching retirement!
