    Thank you for posting an update in your Recruiting Notebook link. Too bad we cannot lock down Palaie, Tuli, and Marcus on December 20th. Will anyone be covering the Penei signing commitment? Any other potential surprise signings on December 20th?
    Fight On!

    Hi Garry,

    It seems that the chatter now among various outlets is louder and more widespread than just amongst us fans, specifically regarding the issue of the PAC-12 relationship with USC. Revenue-sharing, league scheduling, and "parity" are all under question. Larry Scott's reception by the fanbase of PAC-12 Champion USC was less than warm at the championship game. Scott later shared that there will be a revamp to the league scheduling process in the future. Is it fair to say that Scott and other PAC-12 stakeholders are hearing complaints? Do you see USC (Lynn Swann) asking for more concessions? What's your take? Thanks!

    We've invested a lot of valuable scholarships in our special teams: P Tilbey(junior), LS Damon Johnson(freshman) and K Michael Brown(freshman). But they hardly played in 2017. With few scholarships available, does SC give scholarships to starters Budrovich (jr), McGrath (fr) and Schmidt (jr)? Or, does SC use the scholarships for available 4 and 5-star position recruits in the upcoming class?

    It seemed like the secondary regressed a lot in the second half of the season (though playing a bunch of good passing attacks played a part in that as well). Do you think we will see some dramatic changes in the lineup next year (Marshall at safety, Ajene replaced at slot corner), or will continuity be the key to improvement? Tell and Langley were solid, but there's clearly work to be done.

    Garry,
    I have to assume there are new wrinkles on both sides of the ball for the bowl. But which team does OSU compare with that we played this year? Can we anticipate any changes to the special teams which has been inconsistent?

    After a bright season where USC overcame poor scheduling, poor officiating, and still finished on top, what if any thought has been given to the university bowing out of the PAC-12? Has there been any conversation as to ousting the PAC-12 president and his staff?

    Langley was not all that solid, IMO. But he doesn't have a lot of experience either. I have no idea what his potential is.

    Great news with Palaie, do you know if the Pac12 or any networks are going to cover any of the recruits' signings next Wednesday?

    It's been mentioned that the practices leading up to the bowl game are an opportunity for younger guys who didn't see much (or any) playing time this year to develop on the field, show their capabilities and start to set themselves up for a meaningful role next year. Who are some of the guys that you're particularly interested in watching?

    Hi Garry,

    It seems like we are not using all of our practice allowance. This is probably due to a shorter time period and coaches needing to recruit.

    Do you know if Ohio State scheduled all of their practice allowance? Do you think that will affect the outcome of this game?

    Thanks

    I read somewhere, I think the Recruiting page, that Gaoteote was one of the best USC prospects in a long time. Someone else said he was the best prospect in the country. I watched some highlights of him today and he was unreal, but I don't know that he's a better prospect for defense than Daniels is for offense. What's your take Garry? They both look like future All-Americans to me.

    What are your thoughts on bringing Coach Meat over from UCLA to help with DBs and moving Bradford over to just safeties? We don't have a lot of defensive staff right now and our recruiting at DB has been weak

    Your thoughts on the idea of SC going independent? Pros? Cons? I've never been for it but this seasons scheduling may have shifted my thinking.

    Who needs a win at the Cotton Bowl more and why -- SC or Ohio St?
