My oral surgeon is a big donor ... tmobile11 New Member Joined: Thursday Messages: 4 Likes Received: 3 Nov 8, 2018 at 1:02 PM #1 Had a procedure yesterday ... thank goodness i chose localized anesthesia bc my surgeon (and donor) talked to me the entire time about the state of SC football ... He said that the donors control the coaching change, and football is not a priority (i know, not a newsflash) -- the school is. The one knock on Helton in their eyes is his inability to raise $$$ bc he has ZERO charisma in that department ... He also said many boosters are waiting for more losses to usher him out ... with another two losses he probably goes ... He said lane kiffin is not a good person ... he said Sark treated helton like an errand boy, gave him jobs like picking up dry cleaning and doing personal assistant work. he also said Sark had 2 girlfriends outside of wife, prob has kid w/ one of them (Yes, many know this already) He said Orgeron did not get job bc he didn't fit in w/ big donors who required to be sold on football, ie., not country club enough ... (not a news flash, but confirmed) He also said, if there is a coaching change, it will be Jack del Rio since he checks the boxes and is seen as "tough" guy. He also is well equipped to work a room. Lastly -- Gary please dont ban me again for calling out our inept coaching staff in summer. It looks like i was right on just about every account, just saying ... below are the points i made in summer that were considered blasphemous by the mods. need a new coach = massive check not physical = check lost locker room = check lack of strength of cond. = check (see injuries from bodies unprepared for contact, and walk thru practices) lost former player respect for program = massive check Tee martin's wonderlic score = check o-line = check questioning are one-on-one D philosophy = check With all the changes helton has to make, we'd be better off w a new staff TrojanHorseshoe, TrojanEddie and USC1994 like this.
