    The interior linemen are not exactly Mosebar, Foster and Budde either.

    I agree with you, except I would have Justin start at center.

    I agree with you, except Neilon sure doesn't play like he's 305. Re: Drevno it would be difficult for Joe Bugel or Hudson Houck to coach up his players well enough to block in that joke of an offense.

    They need a new offensive coordinator to have a chance.

    I don’t recall any issues with the center exchanges, either shotgun or long snapping. Job well done

    Harbaugh fired Drevno. Methinks that is part of the equation. Strength and conditioning is an issue as well. Would it kill Harrell to actually do some sweeps or figure out how to make a 3 and 1 or 4th and 1??! Basic stuff.

    AVT is leaving so lets just hope some coaching changes emerge that start at the top or.......the hospital emergency rooms will think that USC QB's have a secret strain of COVID.

    Wow. That there is a big dude. Pretty sure I can fit both of my legs in just one side of those trousers. Plus my torso too. And I just ate a big dinner.

    No but snapping is not the center's only job. Even though Toa made it seem that way.

    305 is not small for the center position. The center is often a shorter more athletic guy than the other Olinemen. If I remember correctly both Neilon and Dedich were the #1 center recruits of their respective classes so there’s no excuse

    Very good post, but I'll respectively disagree, somewhat. Do you know the program that puts the most offensive linemen into the NFL? It's Wisconsin by a wide margin over the "big boys". I'll provide a link. Although I bemoan the lack of offensive line talent that committing to USC, there is still something to be said to take 3-star projects like Wisconsin does, redshirting them, and intensively coaching and developing them into NFL caliber players. Except at left tackle, it seems you can coach kids around athleticism. Sadly that will never happen at USC due to who the coaches are, and their offensive and practice philosophies.

    Can’t wait to see who replaces Drevno. I suspect the Rolodex of asst coaches wanting to coach under Gomer is getting pretty thin.

    Just saw a Sarkisian led offense throw the ball all over the field and destroy ND. No penalties. Disciplined. When they have to run, they make the right blocks and get positive yards. Use a bunch of screens. Football!
