    It’s clear for everyone to see. It’s just up to USC to decide if they want to compete seriously in football anymore. The longer Clay stays the deeper the hole will get.

    It's very obvious USC is not serious about football anymore... hasn't been for years... football is an afterthought to the admin and the student body... these kids now will be alumni soon enough and then it will be an afterthought to alumni as well...

    Snoop is right about one thing, "I love SC, but they weak."

    Weak coach = weak team. Will support any USC coach and team, but doesn't mean they aren't weak.

    How many times, as a USC alum, have I heard this? The Tollner era, the late Larry Smith era, and then the Hackett era. SC doesn't care about football and these smart new students don't like football. Of course Pete Carroll proved all that wrong - arguably the best SC football over time ever. The issue has always been about leadership, something SC has screwed up over time as well, especially as college sports have become big money. We haven't had a great AD in forever - Mike McGee was an outsider who was awful - forced us back to the insider AD train. Garrett was an embarrassment - more NCAA sanctions under his watch than any other AD in our history. We need some forward thinking administrators to treat the athletics program like the big business it is and recruit, nationally, the best AD to come in and continue to grow our business, starting with a great football program.

    Pretty sure Reggie and his family are the reason we are where we are today. Without those sanctions, SC would have been able to hire a legit HC and not Kiff/Sark disaster and this Helton would have never been the coach. The fear of a depleated roster due to "normal" physical practices has taken its toll and we see the results. This all started there and if there were no sanctions I believe SC would have hired a proven HC after the Kiffin disaster but nobody worth anything wanted the job so they hired Sark and hoped for the best. If Swann wants to retain Helton, that is his right. If he gets someone new, it should be someone who will bring toughness and a killer instinct. We need a coach who has something to prove, ala Pete, so they can satisfy the chip on their shoulder. See Tom Brady, Jerry Rice, etc. But in a coach.

    Not to rehash but the typical penalty for one player taking benefits was 2 lost scholarships.

    Nope, the sanctions mess was 100% on the SC Pimp. Under that clown a decision was made to not hire a NCAA law firm to represent SC's interest and to simply plead ignorance. Furthermore, the SC pimp hired a TV color man to lead the athletic department and to pay him twice the going rate for AD's. But it didn't end there...then he tried to sweep two scandals under the rug that are likely to cost SC in the general vicinity of $500 million.

    Not to put too fine a point on the matter but the SC BOT under John Mork's leadership rewarded the Pimp with a lifetime seat at the table.

    So no, SCs problems start with a group of clowns called the Board of Trustees.

    Snoop always gets it....don’t understand the hate for him by some. He loves ‘SC. He only had to don some bRuin game for his weird son.

    He’s right on.

    The real concern that we should have is that Snoop does have credibility with the high school recruits in Southern California and if these kids are telling Snoop that we are weak then recruiting has just gotten much more difficult. Unless we change this perception we may be in serious trouble as a program.

    Max should have never been president but all thought he could raise money. I am not a fan of Haden or Max, but Reggie and his family put SC in a position to make decisions and the SC leadership failed. The Bush family are the cause of all of this. Poor leadrship only made it worse. I am not sure SC will ever recover from the foreigner "pimp"

    He's right about a lot of things, but i'm over this uptempo shit. Perhaps we don't have the right coach for it, but our advantage is we recruit bigger and better than 99% of the country, we need to be about offensive and defensive line dominance.
