Re: Three young corners progression outlook..

This. The defense just needs incremental improvements. I am not exactly sure of this stat, but seemed to me UGA got about half their totoal yards on the 1st quarter. So the D played much better...

Re: The Demise of the 3-4

I agree with a lot of the posters about personnel for the 3-4. It relies on a NT that can eat up space and occupy 2 OL. It also relies on a couple or at least one stud OLB. I think of one of the...

Re: Kevin Sumlin Thoughts.

Sumlin is a classy guy and a great coach and excellent recruiter. A&M hiring him from just down the road in Houston was a brilliant move. He has the UT (Texas that is) faithful fit to be tied. I...

Re: Confused fan here. Why is SOS ticked about D?

As I said previously, I am class of 91, so I sat thru the FSU massacre, the Clemson drubbing (49-0 I think) and the Ga Tech loss mentioned above. So I am a lot happier these days.

To clarify my...

Re: Confused fan here. Why is SOS ticked about D?

I graduated SC in 91, I sat thru some tough games as a student including the FSU and Clemson losses. This is not even close. Yeah our D was awful, but at least we scored. We actually had a chance...

Re: Should Tiger get back with Butch Harmon?

I am not sure STD's is the issue. He won all but the 08 US Open before he bulked up. Now maybe that is the reason for the injuries, that and the multiple swing changes.

Let's not forget he won...

Re: 2014 Signee - Joe Blue

I don't like the 9th and 10th grades explanation. That is essentially saying that if you don't do well in 9th and 10th grade, no chance of getting in to USC, even if you right the ship, work hard...

Re: Connor Shaw: Atlanta, Cleveland, Tenn, NE?

I have seen Connor rated 5-6th rounder, but his work ethic, smarts and character will move him higher. I think someone takes a shot on him in the 5th round. What I now find amazing is Tajh Boyd has...

Re: Clowney feel's it is a "spit in the face" to question his effort

There's a difference between taking plays off and completely not trying. He was trying and he was the most game planned against defensive player in college football, meaning his effort would have...

Re: CockyTalk's 2014 National Signing Day Discussion Thread

I love this class. We have a serious badass group of defensive players. The Seattle seahawks just taught us a lesson that a defense can be built around the back four. I think we have that with...

Re: Feb 5, ..25 years ago today

I was a sophomore. Remember it all too well....sparky was a nice man and I loved bobby fuller, but the program went backwards and it took a long time to recover.

Re: 2014 - Kaylon "Poona" Ford

At this point, time to move on. It's really not USC's problem. If there are other potential D1 players at that HS who want to play for USC at some point, IT IS THEIR problem.

The only thing I...

Re: 2014 - Kaylon "Poona" Ford

I have to think that when Poona went back to school Tuesday, Payne was not happy that he scheduled the visit. I would bet he felt slighted - putting it mildly - that Poona took the visit without him...

Re: 2014 - Kaylon "Poona" Ford

Agreed.

I have no issues with a HS coach giving advice to a player and Payne has that right. It should be objective. I'd be curious to hear the objective reasons and if those reasons are unique...

Re: 2014 - Kaylon "Poona" Ford

Fair enough, but why would he set up a visit for this weekend only to cancel it a day later? If Payne does not think USC is the right fit, fine, give your $0.02 and then stay out of it. I'd be very...
