Re: How would you rate Coach Elliot's performance this year?
OL played very well at times & very poorly at times. Sometimes during different facets of the same game. Overall decent improvement but next year's line should be much better on paper & hopefully more consistent. Elliott has done a good job here & is a top recruiter so he is more than safe. Even if the proposition is that his unit is somewhat underachieving (I don't take that stance at this point) there is simply no way, given the unproven ability of other members of this staff to bring in talent, that you even consider making a change. USC's OL will never be stellar in pass protection because of the nature of the patterns the WR's run. A mobile QB is a huge plus & I expect the sack total to increase next year even though the OL should be better.
