Tuesday Whispers: "What Is Going Over There?"

Tuesday Whispers: "What Is Going Over There?"

Sometimes, things happen at USC that are so strange, even the coaches mention it to me.

I got a text from a coach Monday that said, “Did you see we had a high school player on campus last week? He was 5-6, 140 pounds.”

Say what?

I might not normally mention this but then I got a text from a Pac-12 coach about the same recruit’s visit: “What is going on over there?”

I don’t know what is going on at USC. Maybe Clay Helton knows something others do not. The problem is his track record is pretty abysmal.

When a coach on his own staff and a rival coach are texting the same reporter, it seems like a problem.

  • Meanwhile, one of the perks when you work in the athletic dept. is you get a couple free tickets to football games.

But two athletic dept. employees tell me a new policy is in effect that makes the employees pay the "Coliseum Restoration Gift" of $500 per seat.

So the free tickets would actually cost $1,000.

As Lynn Swann says, "the change will come."
