IMHO Sunday: To be or not to be?

Greg Katz – WeAreSC.com In my humble opinion, cardinal and gold thoughts on what I see, what I hear, and what I think. The Price is right: The USC Trojans will be searching for a left tackle replacement for departed All-Pac-12 lineman Chad Wheeler, and rumors are growing louder that maybe there is a little more smoke to the speculation ...

O/NSO: Fact and rumor edition

By Greg Katz - WeAreSC.com The Obvious: It’s a fact that the months of February and March were expected to be smooth sailing for Clay Helton’s (photo above) Trojans program, especially coming off a huge Rose Bowl victory and a euphoric recruiting finish just a couple of weeks ago.

IMHO Sunday: Walking the recruiting walk

Greg Katz – WeAreSC.com In my humble opinion, cardinal and gold thoughts on what I see, what I hear, and what I think.

With Wednesday’s consensus top 5 signings for the Class of 2017, ...

IMHO Sunday: Channeling recruiting

Greg Katz – WeAreSC.com In my humble opinion, cardinal and gold thoughts on what I see, what I hear, and what I think. Say what: By the time National Recruiting Signing Day is completed on Wednesday, the USC Trojans are expected to have a top 10 recruiting class, maybe even top 5 if the blue chips fall their way. So, will somebody please ...

O/NSO: The recruiting dominoes are falling edition

IMHO Sunday: The recruiting gift

Greg Katz – WeAreSC.com In my humble opinion, cardinal and gold thoughts on what I see, what I hear, and what I think. The spokesman: With under two weeks remaining before National Letter of Intent Day, the USC Trojans main focus is the drive for quality defensive linemen.

O/NSO: On schedule edition

By Greg Katz - WeAreSC.com The Obvious: The USC Trojans have released their 2017 football schedule. The Not So Obvious: The first thing one notices is that the Trojans are home three of the first 5 games, which should provide for a good transition for new inexperienced talent and mold cohesiveness. However, those first trio of games (Western ...
