    Did we get a reason from Riley?

    Maybe he didn’t like what he saw from USC ? Many of these recruits are expecting changes with the new DC and so far it’s the same ole shit.

    Not really liking that we are missing on so many higher ranked players. Especially in the trenches.

    It’s like our recruiters have leprosy.

    We won't get 4 or 5 star offensive linemen until Drevno is replaced. He was given undo credit while coaching at Stanford. He's been a dud at Michigan and twice now at USC.

    As long as the standard for 4 and 5 star guys is getting into the CFP then USC will have trouble recruiting against the likes of Bama, LSU, Georgia, Notre Dame, Clemson, Oklahoma, tOSU and now Oregon.

    Until Trojans get an Urban or somebody of that stature to lead a high-profile program then they can only hope to be a top-15 /20 program with occasional Rose Bowl trips.

    I do not believe we need a big name coach here.
    USC is a brand name that recruits itself.
    All we need is a coach that is stay true to his word, do what he says, and produces on the type brand of football that we are going to be playing on both sides.

    HCCH always SAYS the right things, but his problem has been following through with his word/plan.
    If we were able to follow through on his word, we might have landed a handful of those West prospects that ended up at Oregon/Ohio State/Washington/Utah/Notre Dame/Stanford the last 3-4 recruiting classes; mainly Sewell/Thibodeaux/Flowe/Davis.

    Clay Helton is a tier 2 assistant coach that lucked into a tier 1 head coaching position — just my opinion. He needs to be working at (FIU) Fantasy Island U where the fans aren’t educated, nor feel entitled enough to raise legit questions about their head football coach’s ability to: coach, recruit, and build a solid foundation for a winning program. Helton is a great Bull Sh#@ter. He says enough to keep the recruits, their parents and his bosses jovial. He is just another corporate Brown-nose that takes a sensitive position within the corporate ladder — usually over a qualified candidate — then under-performs, and starts blaming others for any shortcomings!!
    Imagine this: Mother Teresa leading our troops into a conflict instead of General Patton! Do you expect the same outcome? Exactly...Clay is not the answer. Who knows if he’ll ever develop into a competent HC, but as of today he’s not the answer to the USC riddle.
