Which AD was responsible for Helton's buyout?

I'm kinda enjoying this for two reasons.  First, it's nice to see another blue blood suffer like we've been suffering. Second, my daughter's college soccer coach is a USC guy, and let's say he's "annoying," as in he's completely oblivious to the fact that any other school has a tradition in football.

That's what I thought, but the comment about the AD  being hand picked had me thinking it was the new guy who immediately agreed to some stupid buyout.  I obviously don't follow USC that closely because Texas is the only school out there that has a football tradition.

Swann was hand picked by the dude who owns Public Storage.

Well, if you're going to let one guy pick your AD, why not a storage unit guy?

Hey, he knows where all the bodies aren't buried.

RECRUITING: Three-star DE Juergens decommits from USC 2020 class

ByCHRIS TREVINO    Dec 8, 10:06 PM

Three-star 2020 St. Margaret's Episcopal defensive end Kyle Juergens decommitted from USC's 2020 class on Sunday night. Juergens is the second USC decommitment of the weekend, joining 2020 three-star Reno (NV) offensive tackle Joey Wright.  "After much prayerful thought and discussion with my family, coaches and mentors, I have decided to re-open my recruitment and de-commit from USC," wrote Juergens on his social media. Juergens committed to USC back in June after picking up an offer at USC's Elite Camp. He played both defensive and and offensive guard at the camp. "USC has been a school of mine that I've always looked up to. We would always watch SC as a family on Saturday nights," Juergens told USCFootball.com at the time. "A factor was my grandmother, she went to USC, that was a real big factor that I took into account. USC had everything that I wanted in a school. I couldn’t be more happy about committing." 

The 6-foot-4, 241-pound Juergens is listed as an offensive guard in the 247Sports rankings but committed to the Trojans with the intent of playing defensive line. He was rated No. 1,666 overall, the No. 100 offensive guard and the No. 151 recruit in California, according to the 247Sports rankings. Juergens committed to USC over offers from Arizona State, BYU, Nevada, San Diego State, UNLV and San Jose State. In six recorded games this season he registered 34 total tackles and two sacks.   “Juergens can play on either side of the line of a scrimmage and said the coaches didn’t specify what side of the ball they like him best at. He can play DE or OT and fits the mold of the lighter and more athletic offensive lineman that fit the HS profile of recent NFL Drafts," said West Coast Recruiting analyst Greg Biggins. "Juergens is light at 245 pounds but has the frame to easily pack on weight and his 4.66 shuttle time is excellent and translates very well to the next level. He shows very good lateral mobility, balance and coordination and if he can continue to gain size and strength, he has a chance to be a very affective player for the Trojans.” 

There were signs that a decommittment was on the horizon; via an interview with USCFootball.com reporter Shotgun Spratling, Juergens said that he did not have an official visit scheduled with the Trojans nor did USC conduct an in-home visit.   USC's 2020 class falls to No. 87 in the nation and No. 11 in the Pac-12. The class is left with four-star Composite wide receiver Joshua Jackson, three-star offensive tackle Andres Dewerk, three-star Caadyn Stephen, three-star Andrew Milek, three-star defensive tackle Jamar Sekona, three-star offensive tackle Casey Collier, four-star offensive guard Jonah Monheim, four-star defensive tackle Kobe Pepe and two-star kicker Parker Lewis.

Feldman: USC officials didn't like what Coach O "sounded like"

By AUSTIN NIVISON   4 hrs ago

“I think what you have is a guy who has continued to evolve,” Feldman said. “He made a huge jump from when he was at Ole Miss to when he was at USC. I think he’s made a significant jump after that, but I really think it’s a USC issue. You have a lot of people at USC, especially during the Pat Haden regime, who couldn’t get past what Ed Orgeron sounded like. They didn’t listen to the players. They didn’t listen to the staff. At the end of the day, Ed Oregeron is not a country club guy. I think he can relate to just about anyone. The Governor of Louisiana was waiting outside the locker room. He’s very street smart, and I think that’s one of the things that made him a very good recruiter. He can read people very well. I don’t think Pat Haden, who was the decision maker at the time, that’s just not the type of guy he wanted. I don’t think he could get past it.”
