Offensive coordinator Kennedy Pola shares a valuable lesson he learned from a special walk-on fullback about coaching college kids this week in the USCFootball.com War Room.
We also discuss the O-line problems, share several behind the scenes recruiting updates and become your eyes and ears in Minneapolis for the team's arrival there.
More details of what is inside:
Huntington Beach (Calif.) defensive end Charles Burks has a scholarship offer from USC, with a catch. Now it appears that the bureaucracy from his school district could be a road block in his recruitment.
Palo Alto (Calif.) running back and Stanford commit Amir Carlisle officially visited USC over the weekend. We have an update on his status and which running backs the Trojans are after for the class of 2011.
How much interest does Gardena (Calif.) Serra four-star athlete Marqise Lee have in becoming a Trojan?
After a good opening game, the Trojan offensive line took at step back last weekend against Virginia. We pick the brain of OL coach James Cregg to try and figure out what is going on.
Running behind that line is the crew of running backs led by offensive coordinator and running backs coach Kennedy Pola. We talk to Pola and learn why his son played a big part in helping his transition from the NFL to college football.
Our Dan Weber is on the scene in Minneapolis and he shares his thoughts on the team's arrival and how what first appeared to be very different, now seems a little more familiar.
He also shares his theory on the "no tackling" policy in practice and what the real problem is for this USC defense on the field.
Plus plenty more!
