    A lot of us has been complaining about this coaching staff for over 2 years; even when we won the Rose Bowl. We won on pure talent and lost games we shouldn’t have. It was obvious that this coaching staff was not good.

    Many of us knew we would be scary bad once Adoree, Juju and Sam left. We all knew the playcalling was bad. We all knew Clay Helton was clueless; he still is. Clay Helton won’t turn this program around. His philosophies and schemes are high school level at best.

    The fact that we keep hitting new lows says Helton's chances "righting the ship" is zero - at least with a new coach you have a gamble.

    It's been a trying decade.

    Let's break the cycle of mediocrity and find a winning coach!

    You are 100% correct on the importance of the QB position. And, indeed, Clay had one of the top two QBs in all of college football for two seasons and still managed to lose three games in each of the seasons -- including in the earlier of the two because he could not identify how good that QB was.

    I had a BIG problem with Sam not starting The Stanford game in 2016. We may not have won that game with Sam in his first start but we would have won m The Utah game and The Pa 10 South. As it turned out we had a great season.....Rose Bowl win and #3 in the Nation....!

    If you get rid of Helton you better know who will be the Guy....In other words a De Facto search should have been going on.....What if we win the next two games????......The bruins and the Domers....Those are the schedules circled games......We want to win them right? or would that be inconvenient in the firing of the coach.....These are the games we look forward to ......If a coach can't get SC players motivated to play in these games then he should be history....If a coach can rally the troops to close out "This Trying Season" that is also a factor.....Lets see what happens...!

    If Clay stays so many players will transfer, be dismissed, kicked out, held out that USC won't be able to field a football team.

    Maybe that is BOT's plan.

    University of Chicago, here we come!

    Clay chose the wrong QB1 (again). As uscmike said, Sears or Fink should have run the team while JT got coached up.

    We had the best possible roster Clay will ever have the best possible player he'll ever coach at the most important position in college football ... and he still couldn't get the College FB Playoff.

    That was Clay's shot. It's all downhill from here.

    Keep in mind that Clay's record without Darnold starting at QB is 11-11 ... with two of those wins coming against non-Power-conference schools (Utah St. and UNLV) and five of those wins coming during Clay's period as interim head coach.

    Since being promoted to full time head coach, Clay's record against Power-conference schools without Darnold is 4-9. Four Wins. Nine Losses!!

    He's not a Championship Level Coach. Period. Full Stop.
