Presenting the War Room - Happy New Year edition

In this Happy New Year's edition of the War Room we have some USC recruiting, team and coaching search updates.

More details of what is inside:

  • Does USC have its offensive line coach? We share our thoughts on the latest name to emerge.
  • With no new assistant coaching hires announced and a loss in the Holiday Bowl, how has recruiting momentum been impacted?
  • The strange head coaching cycle isn't over and we describe how it could significantly impact USC's future.
  • Some recruiting drama with Serra five-star defensive end and USC commit Oluwole Betiku.
  • Do the Trojans have a real chance at Lawrenceville (Ga.) four-star offensive tackle E.J. Price?
  • Alabama rolled Michigan State last night and the Crimson Tide are the next opponent up for USC. How can the Trojans use that upcoming game for motivation during the offseason?
  • Surgery updates for some of the injured Trojan football players.
  • We provide some analysis as to what, how and why everything seemed to go wrong in the Holiday Bowl.
  • Plus plenty more!
