It's July and it's time to stop and time to go...

Virtually every thread contains disrespect, Helton hate, Swann hate, doom and gloom, and so on. Just like it is hurting WeAreSC, it has the potential to hurt the team. The players and their families are not isolated from this constant drivel. These posts remind me of a Lab with a rawhide bone, knaw, knaw, and ad nauseam. Sure, some of them are probably written by Bruin trolls, maybe even a Domer troll or two? But most of them are probably Trojans "fans" who would rather see the team fail than Helton succeed. . News flash - The coaching staff is set, the team has a new offense, and the players have a new attitude. EVERY SINGLE area of weakness from last season has been addressed. If you cannot accept the fact that Helton and staff are driving hard to make 2019 awesome, then it is time for you to go, not them. When I saw St. Brown and (I think it was) Vaughns emerge from the rainy winter time looking like junior Mr. Universes, I suspected something special might be brewing. It has only gotten better; Our QB will not be a 17 year old Freshman or a red shirt Freshman. Our 2019 Freshman phenom QB is fourth string where guys like him belong in their first year. Did you see Carr get smacked HARD in the Spring game. When he got up and shook it off you could almost read his thoughts as if they were posted on the Jumbo Tron; "Wow, that was a hit, BUT it didn't hurt , my back is good (after surgery), I am good, no I am real good". Oh yeah, SC has two othe RBs just as good as Carr. Do we need to even discuss the WRs? Oh, but the line sucked last year. Well, IMHO the line starts at the Center position, and yes Toa was no Center, BUT Brett Neilon is, and that kid is on a tear to prove it. He is also on a tear because he has a pretty good true Center behind him. Also, Doom and Gloomers, Drevno is the 2019 OL Coach, not Calloway. There is no need to hope things will improve along the line, you can take it to the bank. . STs are going to be flat out fun. Baxter doesn't have to worry about the TEs in 2019. He has three very good place kickers, a good long snapper, and he has a punter that SC wants to limit film on because he can do things with a football that are apparently unnatural. I have heard that besides being able to place the ball in a thimble, he can put a wickedness on it that is seriously hard to catch. Remember, behind Matt Leinart was a kid named Tom Malone who was very helpful in consistently generating subsequent good field position for the Trojans. . The drivel posters have also constantly maligned the defense. Yet they will not acknowledge that many of the 2018 injury list were key defenders. No kid from UC Davis would have done that with Porter healthy and in the game. Meanwhile, Hufanga and Gaoteote will make plays in 2019 that will cause opposing fans to groan just at the sound of the hits. . I am not pumping sunshine on this, these are the facts. The 2019 Trojans are stronger, faster, and have some scores to settle. The Coaching staff is properly in place all the way to the S&C coach. If you can't at least shut up and take a wait and see attitude for the 2019 USC Trojans, then I for one would like to see you go away, because you are not helping this team in anyway with the constant 'tude.
