I'm guessing that the season isn't going to happen.

  1. What happens to the players? Will the scholarships for sports be expanded by 25%, since there are new HS graduates?
  2. Will Clay get a pay cut? How does this effect his job prospects?
  3. What will happen with BB coach? mediocrity used to be a firing offense?
  4. What do you hear about SC's income statement because of reduced students?
  5. Is SC going to reduce tuition since they're going to video classes?
  6. How is this affecting players going to the pro's?

Scott, you've always been the fearless Devil's Advocate we could go to to get the real story during the corrupt Pat Haden- Nikias - Swann decade. We know Suckiffian had you treated as a non-person during their two failed coaching stints at USC. Do you think the new Carol Folt-Mike Bohn USC administration will try a new tactic and will try to cancel you now?https://www.persuasion.community/p/the-cancel-culture-checklist

Do you think Twogie should be cancelled and booted from the USC Hall of Fame?

NCAA President Mark Emmert said there would be no football season if students did not return to their campuses this Fall. USC just announces there will be no students returning to campus this Fall. Does that mean USC football is cancelled until at least Spring semester?

Do you think USC will force all the players to wear face shields to prevent the spread of the Red Chinese Flu or allow players to opt out like the NFL is?

If there is no football season, how will that effect other sports who rely on football revenue to survive?

Scott and Claudette, do you think the L.A. County Board of Supervisors "Reimagining L.A. County" proposal on the November ballot that would strip $880 million away from Sheriff's Department, court system, DA's office, and redistribute it to low income areas/social programs will make Los Angeles a lawless urban frightmare and affect recruiting and depress attendance at the newly $315 million refurbished Coliseum (aka Haden's Folly)?

What do you and Claudette think about today's breaking story about Colorado State covering up the Red Chinese Flu cases and their football coaches refusing to use masks and social distance? Is that going to happen across the nation given the fact most coaches know nothing about microbiology and aseptic technique?https://www.healthline.com/health/aseptic-technique

Scooter,

do you have any inside information on why that no good bum, pencil neck geek, lower than whale dung, Larry Scott, did not allow SC to play ND and why SC is playing Thug U aka ruinville, aka ulgy first?

Scott...

  1. I liked the old format better than the current format...sigh
  2. It's not that Helton is lucky, It's SC is unlucky...or perhaps stupid beyond understanding.... Seriously Carol Dolt as President???

Why hasn't President Carol Burnett and her side kick Bohn-head made a statement about the players strike?

What do you think of Jack Yary’s assertions that he told the truth and you lied?

Should USC President Carol Burnett follow Columbia's Peaceful Moderate Democrat lead and host a ‘deconstructing whiteness’ workshop for ‘white-identified students'?

What do you and Claudette think the Pac 12 should do in response to the Pac 12 Players Strike Statement?

Since you applaud the renaming of the Von KleinSmid Center for International and Public Affairs and the Cromwell Track, do you support The USC Cowlings Residential Center be renamed and Al Cowlings removed from the USC Hall of Fame because of Cowlings shameful conduct helping OJ try to escape justice?

Why did USC President Carol Folt deliberately alienate the alumni groups across the nation?

Scott -what is your honest opinion of Drevno? In games against physical opponents the o-line doesn't seem to be playing much better under him than they did under Callaway. He produced results at Stanford & San Francisco---is he mailing it in these days?

Will USC Board of Trustees Chairman Rick Caruso run for Mayor of Los Angeles and if so who will fill the leadership vacuum?

Scott and Claudette, do you think Drake London will have an All American year? Can you arrange an interview with him? Love The Drake!

Normally I tend to be a pessimist but the Pac 12 has never been weaker, the traditional powers in the conference are all rebuilding and with ND and Bama off the schedule, do you and Claudette think 10-0 is very much a possibility given our overwhelming depth returning at all positions and our top flight assistant coaches?

Is USC football under Pat Haden and Lynn Swann and Clay Helton more Seinfeld or Curb Your Enthusiasm?

Scott, you always say Helton is the luckiest coach in college football. If the 16 Oregon players including most of their stars go on strike do you think Oregon will be a blow out win for SC as they go undefeated?

Scott do you think you and Claudette could interview some of the former USC players like Bob Jensen and have them talk about those great SC teams of the McKay Robinson Dysnasty of 1959-1982 and those of the Pete Carroll Dynasty of 2001-2009?

Scott, do you think Carol Folt, Mike Bohn and the rest of the sports world should have waited to get involved in national politics until the police bodycam of the George Floyd arrest was released today which shows George Floyd wailing in pain before any of the cops touched him and he kept telling the officers he’s claustrophobic as a way to resist arrest and said over and over again, “I can’t breathe” while standing and breathing and after the police officers put him in the back of the cruiser? Due to Folt and Bohn's craven leadership they committed USC to making a Fentanyl/methamphetamine/marijuana drugged out criminal into a martyr. Should they resign in disgrace now or will an Emily Litella "Never mind" be enough?

How many rushing carries do you expect to see per game? How do you expect those carries to be distributed between Stepp, Christon, VM and Carr?

Scott --- If and when USC begins football practice do you think they'll be open to the press? If so, will you be there to brighten Coach Helton's day during his post practice pressers?
Whatever your answer, glad you're doing the Open Forums!

Jack Yary has been in the news a lot lately. Any other reason he's leaving USC besides being a TE? I was surprised he signed initially. Also, glad Ron is not in hospital. Do you know how he is handling Covid?

Hi Scott, were you aware of the Pac-12 "We are united" initiative prior to the social media announcement? Do you know if any USC players discussed it as a team or voted on it?

Hey, Wolf-mon! What are the odds the 2020 season is canceled for good, either before it begins or after a game or two?
