    What's the best way to keep Barrett from converting 3rd downs or short yardage plays with that little QB run up the middle he does. Teams see it coming, they know it's coming, but he makes the yardage anyway. What can Clancy do to stop that simple play?

    Garry, what is your best guess on 1) JT Daniels reclassifying, and/or 2) Sam Darnold going pro? Do you think JT's decision is dependent on Sam's? And if neither happens, do you think we push to sign a QB on NSD or roll the dice at QB next season with Fink, Sears, and JG in emergencies?

    Is there a limit on the number of players who can travel with the team to the bowl game, like with regular away games, or can the entire team go?

    Should playing in an enclosed stadium such as AT&T Stadium alter the practice environment for the Trojans to prepare for the bowl game considering they haven’t played in one this season?

    Is the punter affected by hanging Jumbotron?

    What surprised you the most from Wednesday signings?

    Garry this coaching staff is outstandingly doing the work, especially the last 2 months. To what degree will or has the early signing period been an obstacle in preparing SC for the Cotton Bowl?

    Garry, do you know what festivities the Cotton Bowl committee will sponsor for the Trojans and Buckeyes while in Dallas? Having PAC 12 and BIG 10 champs represented, its too bad the game wasn't in the Rose Bowl. I always thought going to Lawry's during the week sounded special.

    Garry, this is shaping up to the one of the best classes for USC since the PC days. I have heard that a lot of that has to do with Helton. Why do you think he is having so much success this year? Other than winning 20 of his last 22 games of course

    Will Stephen Carr be utilized more vs Ohio State, as they are very strong against the run; this will limit Ronald Jones.
    Is Carr the most under utilized Player in the country? [see first game this year of Stanford vs USC]

    Garry,
    With the extra time to prepare, do you think they are ready for changes OSU is likely to make? Especially any trick plays? I'm concerned about the secondary having another poor game in coverage, with all the misdirection that they are sure to be seeing by OSU.

    I want to ask you about the two Crenshaw High guys Lewis and Johnson. Are they both participating in bowl practices, and if so, how do they look? With Burnett, Vaughns and Pittman emerging as likely starters for next season, where does Lewis fit in the WR rotation? And what are Johnson's chances to compete for meaningful playing time in what looks to be a crowded secondary?

    Garry, I often wondered where and how you get your information? Do you get weekly meetings with the coaching staff, or do inside program people email you tidbits of interest? Your accuracy is creditable and I'm sure everyone on the board enjoys your insight.

    Garry, once early signing period is over, how does USC reset its board? Who gets offers and what positions get extra attention?

    Garry, this new early signing period has me confused! (easy to do!) How many of the guys we expected to sign today did we sign? Any surprises, good or bad, today? How many scholarships to we have left to fill on NSD? Besides the WR from Mater Dei and the corner from Helix, who is MUST HAVE that's left?
