IMHO Sunday: As Trojans rebound, the coaching search clock is ticking for Folt, Bohn, and the BOT to get it right
In my humble opinion, cardinal and gold thoughts on what I see, what I hear, and what I think from Los Angeles. IMHO: As the 2021 USC Trojans (3-2, 2-2 Pac-12 South) rebounded impressively from last weekend’s humiliation loss to Oregon State with Saturday afternoon’s 37-14 Pac-12 victory at beleaguered Colorado (1-4, 0-2 Pac-12 South), this team is still the undercard to the main event, which is the selection of a head coach – “a world class” coach, according to USC Board of Trustees Chairman Rick Caruso - who can resurrect this once proud and nationally admired blue-blood program. IMHO – Part 2: You can argue there’s no reason to rush the head coaching candidate process, just get it right; yet with the search now into October and November not far behind, there’s no reason to lollygag either because the coach search clock is ticking. We all know that USC should have cut their losses two seasons ago with Clay Helton but didn’t, and that’s why this university’s football program finds itself in the horrendous predicament it’s in today. IMHO – Part 3: If Helton’s dismissal was all about buyout money, I again say bull cheese. I know boosters that would have gladly written the check in a New York minute to save the program from its current state of dysfunction. Unfortunately, a number of those boosters now are either no longer with us or have been inexplicably detached systematically or unsystematically from the program. Then there is a group that simply says, “Enough of my financial donations. If they don’t take football seriously anymore, neither am I.”
