The War Room

This week in the War Room we talk about what the USC recruits think of the recent losses by the Trojans on the field, discuss a potential positive result from the Todd McNair/NCAA hearing and plenty more.

More details of what is inside:

  • A huge shakeup in USC recruiting strategy with Riverside Community College wide receiver Isaac Whitney receiving a scholarship offer. We talk about what it means.
  • Why Encino (Calif.) Crespi four-star safety Marvell Tell is closed to USC than ever before.
  • Higher ups in the Trojan administration took notice of Monday's Todd McNair/NCAA hearing. While things are looking bad for the NCAA, there is a way for USC to use this to its advantage, but the school would have to act soon.
  • In what scenario could the Trojans win out and win the Pac-12 South? Sure USC would need a little help, but if the Trojans can take care of business on the field, winning the South could be more likely than you think.
  • Another way the Pac-12 could learn from the SEC, this time with officiating games.
  • Plus plenty more!
