Really Lane, has it gotten this bad?


Recommended Posts

USC had to fire a student manager who was caught letting air out of footballs before the Oregon game. Supposedly that makes them easier to throw/catch.

If deflating balls helps the air game, wouldn't both teams benefit from it? This is exactly like the long grass assertion back in 2005 where it would only slow down their players but not ours. Ridiculous.

But each team uses their own balls. So only USC would be throwing and catching the deflated balls.

 

Besides, Lane "knew" nothing about it, we can't pin this on him.

Ahh, I thought both teams used the home team balls. Makes a lot more sense now....

Even if they used the same balls, it would makes sense for U$C to do this.

 

OREGON

PASSING YARDS 220.0 (76th)

RUSHING YARDS 341. (22nd)

 

U$S

PASSING YARDS 312.7 (17th)

RUSHING YARDS 152.0 (75th)

 

 

Long grass would affect straight ahead power running differently than cutback, sweep, counter type running.

 

That gif above is awesome. lol.

So he can't coach, he underperforms with great players, he's on his 3rd or 4th mini scandal of the season and the team just had their worst defensive game in school history.

 

Why exactly are kids lining up to play there?

 

I know you don't really need anyone to answer that question, right?

As a former student manager I have to say that one of the USC coaches is behind this...Manager's never do anything other than what their coaches didn't tell them to do (it would be too much extra work haha)

 

How was that? I've always thought Ryan Grooms has my dream job.

Don't doubt it all. This and the jersey issue a few weeks ago. Lane is pulling out all the stops to try to stay coach out there. Man, I hope we beat these guys at the end of the year.
