USC Training Camp Stories Stay Consistent

Scott Wolf

It is a staple of training camp that players are bigger, stronger and faster than the previous season. And the team is more together. And hungrier.

There's little way to really verify this, of course, when everything is closed to the public and media.

But even when practices were fully open, it didn't mean all the pre-season hype was true.

The way I view it, the value of all this is minimal. What does matter is the Pac-12 schedule, which looks too good to be true.

  • USC safety Talanoa Hufanga said today players will wake up at 5:15 for 6 a.m. COVID tests. Maybe that 9 a.m. kickoff vs. Arizona State won't mean much.

Hilton's hyperbole works on me. I might even put on a USC shirt for the first game. Then again I might shred it and send to Bohn like the other people who buy hyperbole. We shall see.
At least this season we have a DC who actually played the game. I will never understand how Clancy got a reputation as a coach.


I am not looking for a "homer" but I was taught if you don't have anything nice to say..." you know the rest. How about unearthing something that's newsworthy rather than just filling your copy quota? Get off the couch and do a little work.

It’s as predictable as you writing this same piece every year.
