    didnt see his name listed on the depth chart released tonight. I know he had an incident last week where he left practice. Is he no longer on the team?

    You know that for sure or just guessing based on the circumstances? I agree that’s where he’s headed but haven’t read anything confirming that.

    Give his scholarship to one of the walk-on's. There must be someone else who understands the meaning of Fight On! who would be deserving of a scholarship.

    OK -- one more thought:

    How emotionally fragile is this guy? He had a spat with someone at practice and the next thing we hear, he's transferring? Apparently, there was some confusion about who was supposed to be on the field and who got the next rep. When Ykili didn't get his way, he walked all the way to the far end of the field and pouted. Did he expect someone to come running after him?

    And just like that, now he's ready to transfer? One bad rep and I'm outta here? Wow -- is this guy made of sugar?

    If he wants to throw away a career at USC and the potential to get a look at the NFL just because someone said "Get off the field, it's not your rep", then that's pretty sad. Good for the coaching staff to not coddle him. Leave him off the depth chart. If he comes back, he's going to have to win his position back.

    He lost my respect after his matador move during the game vs the Ruins.

    Funny enough, he was also suspended for the Cotton Bowl game because of academic ineligibility. Which i totally forgot about and did wonder at the time, why Bubba was starting.

    Ross was 6' 1" tall, 19o lbs. Some had him listed him at 200, but coming off his injury, that may not have been true.

    Bubba Bolden is listed at 6' 3", 200 (sophomore)
    Talanoa Hufanga is listed at 6' 1", 215 (true freshman)
    Isaiah Pola-Mao is listed at 6' 4", 200 (RS freshman)

    With Ross gone, we're getting younger and bigger. I'll take that.

    You are speculating that the incident at practice was the reason he quit when it very well may be it was just the culmination of an ongoing situation or simply the end result of him realizing he was sliding down the depth chart, along with maybe some behind the scenes stuff.

    He's going as a Grad Transfer - which is a concept I fully support. You come to USC to get your degree, which he is about to do, and which makes him a member of the Trojan Family for life.

    10, 20, 30, 40 year from now, having a USC degree will probably have meant more to him than anything he's learned on a football field.

    Chances of any scholarship player on the team making a career in the NFL is very remote (even at USC - of the 30 players that left last year's USC team only 7 are on NFL teams today).

    So Fight On! Ykili

    Speculation without criticism is much different than speculating about an incedent and in turn using that as commentary about someone’s psychological makeup.

    Or maybe Blem knows more than he is putting in his post so he isn’t speculating at all?

    Just like he wasn’t speculating that JT was going to start and the decision had been made long before it was officially announced?

    But nice try

    Nice try at what?

    I made no comment at all about this guy. Do not know anything about him, or any problems he might have. He is gone, I have no need to know why, or to speculate.

    I do love it when blem claims to know something, as always, but never shares what he knows. Then again, when others come fotward with knowledge ...identifying sources, he is often quick to say " I don"t give a____what _____says,"

    Always a nice try.
