2017 USC Fall Camp has now officially ended. With the controlled scrimmage now in the books we will be heading in to a mock home game week preparing for Western Michigan. Looking back to the high paced fall camp its abundantly clear that this years Trojans are very talented and deep. They are also very young which is good news and challenging.

The fan base wants results that warrant the Trojans being back on top of college football. Lot's to prove here but when you see a defense that clearly is way ahead of last years team this point in time and as compared to the number one offense dominated in all areas you can rest assured that USC 2017 will be in all the games they play. The juice will be flowing in the defensive seconday as t...

Back to school shopping has begun and that means one thing, college football is right around the corner. It is almost that time of year where we see Lee Corso putting mascot heads onto his own head, students getting rowdy, and fans debating who the best conference in football is. Is it the SEC, ACC, Pac-12 or the Big Ten? For this blog we are going to worry about the Pac-12 and the Big Ten.

Ohio State, Penn State and Michigan are the top three teams in the conference and those three happen to be part of the East division. Ohio State has the Heisman favorite, J.T. Barrett, returning for his last year of college football. Penn State, who’s finally back, is my favorite to make it to the championship. They have Saquon Barkley in the ba...

The kids are all onboard. The excitement of the new Fall Camp is now 12 days away and ticking closer and closer. Social Media is looking for any reason to take the Trojans down a peg or two but they keep denying. They keep rising. It's all about US. This team at this time will make the change. This team is all about us. They are an elite gathering of extereme talent sometimes refered to as elite athletes. This staff is one of the best in the Power Five schools bar none.

The hype on this team could overwhelm most programs but these kids are focused. Laser guided with extreme caution on the tweets and fascebook stories they become a part of. Time will tell of course but right now there is no better place to be than the halls of USC.

Coach Helton and staff are fine tuning their plans and shifting starters with back ups to model and remodel the team across the seasona and key weeks. We play them one game at a time but make no bones about it there are marked weeks and those teams will require this team and staff to step it up to the highest level of output and delivery for the season to be a success.

As successful season this year is to make the playoffs then win the coveted trophy to show the college football world tha the Trojans of USC are back and they are back or a long time to come. The trophy is ours to take. All eyes are on this team and it is evident in the media and the concerns that they have for this team to measure up to the Alabama's and the Ohio States of the program. All fair comments as we have seen this school get hyped up and fall to it's knees during the sanctioned years.

For now we all anticipate. We all hope and envision a team that gets off to a quick start against the schedule then focus and re-focus on the goals and objectives for the year to be as successful as possible.

Fight On!

Love hate relationship when it comes to the Rumor Mill and college football recruiting. The good news or perhaps the bad news is that both sides are as guilty of the rumor headache so no finger pointing here gang. The high school recruited athletes are now in full bloom with Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and dare I say, etc. Coaches will send out 100's of offers with absolutely no real offer that would hold up in any kangaroo court.

What if we just said, no to the national signing day and the new pre national signing day? What if we allowed a family to be contacted during a certain time frame and sign up when they are ready with a not to exceed date for their childs freshman year? Both sides rest easy. The dollar savings would be huge for all parties. This should not be the circus it has become.

Every university gets so many scholarships per year. Each one has to take inventory so they dont exceed any maximum range. But then they panic as they may have 20 to offer but the players they seek who have given 20 verbals to 20 teams are not trustworthy. Duh! So the Rumor Mill starts. The rumors start to fly off the tweets. Schools have a visit with a prized 17 year old super stud and place them in the green room where they are transformed in the colors of the school with their number and name on their future jersey. One of twenty they thank God for as they tweet out their latest verbal commit off a great camp or unofficial visit.

What is an unofficial visit anyway? They may have to pay their own way I suppose on these versus the official visit but they are physically there. What not just limite all visits to a bigger number that is reasonable and make them all official? I don't know but all of this seems so simple to fix. Is this where the Fake News started?

Fight On
