Tuesday Whispers: It's Always About The Quarterback
First some news: A USC coach told me Monday that Clay Helton actually called Jack Sears two weeks ago and asked him to rejoin the team.
“Sears said he wanted to play if he came back,” the coach said. “That pretty much ended that.”
The coach said Helton is itching to get Kedon Slovis cleared for the Notre Dame game.
“Slovis became his guy after JT (Daniels) got hurt,” the coach said.
Where does that leave Matt Fink?
“Coach (Helton) and Harrell see him as the emergency starter,” the coach said. “The problem is (Helton) stuck Sears at No. 4 and caused him to leave, which left us with few options, especially when Slovis got hurt.”
If you ask me, the coaches should be grateful Fink didn’t transfer and helped them beat Utah.
