    There is no possible way Clancy can watch tape every week and justify starting John Houston. If you dvrd the game today, go back and watch just how many snaps that kid showed little to no effort at all. He won't lift....still the same small ass size as when he got to campus 4 years ago (seems like ten). With all the hype on this kid when he came out, I thought eventually he would turn into a player. Nope. Now it seems he is just trying to get through SC without an injury, knowing he has no future at the next level. I hate to get on young players, but when you don't even try, it's hard to watch. BYU watched the film...they could see dude is always out of position, does not even TRY to shed blocks, is lost in coverage, whether man or zone, and they attacked him repeatedly today....in both the run and pass game. I can't believe this dude is a 3 or 4 year starter....clearly he's one of CH's love boys.

    I disagree...the fact that he's the softest cat on the team, and they made him a captain says ALOT about this coaching staff and culture.

    All true, he's a super soft and slow player, but probably a decent dude.
    It's ABSURDLY extreme to literally remove him from campus.

    Point taken. But, what about the guy that threw three picks today, seems to be what the scouts thought he was (3 star). ASU has a real bonafide freshman quarterback...how SC let him get away in their own backyard? Daniels was spectacular against Spartans today. If this coaching staff remains in tack, that qb from Mater Dei will be decommitting soon.

    He's doing his best he's just not the thumper middle linebacker were use to. Clancy picks his favorites and he rolls with them that's it.

    Don’t blame the kid. He’s just doing what the coaches are asking him to do.

    Clancy, Helton and Baxter should be thrown off campus!

    No need to take it out on the players, they played hard. They just need some direction and leadership from a legitimate coaching staff.

    Kedon had some opportunities to pull it down and run in open field. He did it once. I KNOW Harrell hates that but isn’t that part of taking what the defense gives you? I swear it was like he was under fear of torture that he wouldn’t run.
    Edit : sorry got sidetracked w the last post...Houston made a couple of decent plays and showed a LITTLE speed. That D is just friggin slow in general. Like we LOOK like, why are they moving so slow!?!?

    Removed from campus? This kid is a fellow Trojan. Blame the grown ass coaches who are telling him what position to play. Blaming a USC student/athlete is pretty low.

    The kid is doing the best he can out there, but Gomer & Company have yet again have another player set up for failure and in the wrong position...for 3 years this guy should never be playing LB...to small and weak...at best he should have been a backup Safety.

    Agreed with original post. He runs around like he’s going for a walk in the tulips

    When I saw the title of the thread, I thought I would have read about some scandal (sexual assault or thievery or such) that Houston was involved in.

    Remove him from campus? Un, no. The dude is just what he is - a below average collegiate middle linebacker. He's small for the position (the guy looks smaller than many DBs), not especially quick, not especially instinctual, and isn't a good tackler, either.

    Multiply by 11, and that's the SC defense in a nutshell.

    Pot. Colorado is basically an insane asylum. And the pot today is crazy strong. I know a guy who smoked weed for 45 years, every day since he was 15. Not exactly a novice. His golf instructor gave him some THC thru a vape at a Tedeschi/Trucks concert and he said the top of his head came off and his brains fell out of his head. He was so high, he completely lost his mind for 4 hours. It scared him pure clean.
