some VERY positive signs vs. ND tonight from Coach Helton and our boys USCsWay Active Member Joined: Sep 16, 2019 Messages: 121 Likes Received: 27 Oct 12, 2019 #1 - Despite being down 20-3, the team refused to give up and roared back - Helton and Harrell made some very good adjustments at halftime - 3 straight scoring drives wow! - Remember this Notre Dame team is the #9 team in the country (and true blue-blood championship contending) that we played on the road with a true freshman in bad weather conditions - its only up from here! - Imagine Slovis (only 2nd road start today) and Stepp in year 2 of the Helton/Harrell system next year - no team will want to face USC - its pick your poison between stopping the pass vs. stopping the run - Most importantly of all, we can still win the Pac-12 South! After watching this game, my optimism on Coach Helton has definitely gone up! Fight on!
