    Is USC planning to run some seam routes when opposing defences drop eight in coverage?

    How should the Air Raid offense look in its idealized form? I understand it is pass-oriented, but how much of a run game should there be: 60/40, 70/30, enough to provide some balance? Should it be able to operate from under center on occasion? What would it take for 'SC to run the ball effectively? Thanks

    Hey Erik,

    I know Solomon T. isn't practicing for precautionary reasons but in your opinion, how does he look? Do you think that this is the year he's finally able to avoid the injury bug and show us what he can do?

    Also, what's the word on EA? Is he still looking to transfer or is there hope he will come back and play well in TO's system?

    Has Clay Helton, Mike Bohn, or anyone at USC for that matter addressed the homeless walk-on's infiltration of USC football and Heritage Hall? Or is this another case of the USC administration hoping an issue will simply go away if they close ranks?

    Erik-

    Has there been any sighting of #23 Christan at practice? I feel like he has been run off which would be sad because when used the right way, he could be a weapon.

    How many offensive linemen do you think the staff want to sign? Also outside of Earnest Greene, who the most important offensive line recruit?

    Being that there are (have been) some struggles on the OL, is using the TE going to be more prominent in the every down look of the offense?

    Is Nick Saban afraid of us? I notice he managed to avoid us last year and we should be even better this year.

    sorry...I'm in an odd mood related to our team right now. I'm feeling like I'm being fed the same optimism year after year in Spring camp. I'll snap put of it soon enough.

    He's practicing with the Track team this spring, like Adoree did in his time at SC. This has been widely reported, over and over .

    I'm wondering how Kedon is progressing. Is he showing the promise he has in the past?

    Can we get an honest appraisal of Bru McCoy's play/development? I'm a little concerned that he is following in George Farmer's footsteps. I was convinced that Bru was the next great USC receiver. Was I wrong?

    If Mike Jinks lives up to his word about using a primary RB for most of the carries and then finding a good backup or change of pace back, who do you think the main ball carrier will be? Keontay Ingram or Vae Malepeai or Stephen Carr or Brandon Campbell - what do you see as their roles? And what becomes of our best breakaway threat, currently running track - Kenan Christen - does he stay or does he hit the portal? I feel for Coach Jinks, this is a super difficult decision. I am not sure what I would do. Our philosophy has been to try to keep everyone happy, but obviously he wants to move away from that and his the chosen one(s) enough carries to get into a rhythm.

    Erik- As someone who is very concerned that Helton will still be around in 2022, what do you think he needs to do this year to be around a year from now?
    Conference Championship? South Title? Bowl eligibility? The ability to fog a mirror and spout platitudes he cant backup?
    Please give us your best guess
