    I think the owner's of the "Air Raid" name copyright should sue Harrell, Helton, and USC for mis-representation and slander.... What; didn't SC run 33 times and pass 13 against UW ? That's no "AIR" raid... its more like just plain old Raid, kills bugs dead.

    Since the OP seemed to ask, I guess it's time for another update to the W-L probability distribution;

    W-L %
    10-2 2
    9-3 5
    8-4 10
    7-5 63
    6-6 15
    5-7 5

    USC's opponents so far this year:

    Fresno State: 2-2 (lost to USC and Minnesota)
    Stanford: 2-3 (barley hanging on to beat Oregon State)
    BYU: 2-3
    Utah: 4-1
    Washington: 4-1

    Essentially, we have played 2 good teams. Beat 1 at home and lost to the other on the road.
    And really, I am not sure either team is great. Neither Utah or Washington have beat anyone of note (outside of USC)...best win for Utah is BYU? For Washington it is USC.

    Your reading comprehension skills are severely lacking. I wasn't changing a prediction. Read again. I said "if he finishes with 4 losses". I never made any predictions in the first place. The title of my post is " with a 10-2 season possible". Try actual reading before going off over the edge. That advice will serve you well in life.

    Another genius with poor reading comprehension skills. Show me where I said Helton is a great coach. Now don't hurt yourself looking. You should be writing dictionaries for a living. A troll is what you say it is? Because I'm a realist I can state with total confidence there's no chance CCH gets fired on a tarmac or anywhere else during this season. If stating a well reasoned opinion makes me an agitating contrarian troll in your warped perception, that's your problem.

    Absolutely brilliant response. 100% accurate. It kind of encapsulates everything in one fell swoop.

    When I mentioned CCH is not a PR nightmare like Kiffin I'm not referring to post game pressers. Helton hasn't come close to Kiffin's ball deflating or jersey changing fiascos. The ridiculous refusal to allow a visiting team do a walk thru of the Coliseum was an embarrassment. These are the PR nightmares I was referring to with respect to Kiffin.

    Jersey fiascos You mean like two number 7's on our opening kickoff to start the season. Damn shame that you are still defending Helton as he strips away every ounce of pride and self-respect from our kid's with each embarrassing loss.

    Yeah, that's all USC needs. Having this clown to lead us into Dallas once again to begin the season to get curb stomped by Alabama in 2020. This circus act needs to go..now!

    Which one of those issues prevented kiffin from closing solid recruiting classes? Despite being faced with sanctions, he still brought in some decent players.

    You can try to spin all you want but a PR nightmare is a PR nightmare and helton fits the bill.

    So your saying an 8-4( highly unlikely) and Helton deserves to come back next year?

    Why do I have to read my post back to people who can't read for themselves. Once again if you pay attention you will see I never made a comment about what Helton deserves. Helton had 2 good seasons. His last season was a terrible stinker at 5-7. After that I was sure he would have been fired. He wasn't. If we finish 8-4 it is highly unlikely he will be terminated. As a rule head coaches who finish a few games over .500 are not fired. That is a fact. If we get a strong new AD it is slightly possible if a proven great replacement is available. Again to clarify after last season I thought Clay should have been let go based on lost games with blown leads and the overall record. That was the window of opportunity. At 3-2 with the largest margin of defeat at 14 there is NO way he will be fired midseason on a tarmac or anywhere else.

    If Helton is still the coach next year, I am NOT going to waste my money on a trip to the Alabama game. I'm tired of staring at the ground during the game after spending a couple thousand bucks......

    I hope you are wrong on this with regards to Helton. But coaches at major football schools are often fired for finishing a few games above .500, especially if the previous season was sub-standard as well. Mark Richt, Les Miles, and others were fired after finishing a few games over .500 despite some pretty successful earlier seasons. Mack Brown resigned under pressure at UT after several mediocre seasons, his last one being 8-5.

    I don’t know if Helton will be fired or not, as I don’t know what the AD situation will be nor what is going through the minds of Folt and the BoT. But I would expect that he would be fired after 5-7 and 8-4 seasons at USC.

    If you consider 2017(the year we got our doors blown off by ND and OSU, barely beat a mediocre ucla, struggled vs UTAH, WMU, Texas, etc) a good season, then your standards are lower than most.
    It really sounds like you are trying to defend his record. I most certainly won't, because he is an incompetent buffoon!

    Seasons consisting of 10 and 11 wins do not require defending. It sounds like the only good season for you is one that is undefeated and you would have wanted Helton fired after the Cotton Bowl loss to OSU. Like it or not USC has been rebuilding since that POS Reggie Bush and his parents fucked the football program over. CCH did far better than Kiffin and Sark.

    Well since the Cotton Bowl in Jan 2018, your boy is 1 game under .500.

    His road record is abysmal.

    Im having trouble understanding how you can defend this?! Do you watch the games?
