USC held spring practice at the Coliseum on Friday, in the late afternoon as opposed to the 6 p.m. originally-scheduled time. This is the first time the Trojans have been back to the Coliseum since the conclusion of spring practice, and the first time ever for Silas Redd. Lots of young guys got playing time in the scrimmage so it wasn’t the prettiest football USC has played, but it did not disappoint in terms of action.
Here are the highlights from Day 5:
Late Thursday evening, USA Today reported that Coach Kiffin voted for USC No. 1 in the Coaches’ Poll, even though he said at Pac-12 Media that he would not vote the Trojans as such. We wrote about this situation earlier today, and how it was all much ado about nothing. Today, Kiffin answered questioned pertaining to the situation, saying that the fact that USA Today made his vote public is “not a big deal”, and that no one has called him or contacted him in any way regarding him coaches’ poll vote, or his comments at media day.
On Saturday the Trojans will begin two-a-days, the first of which is scheduled for 9:20 a.m., and then 3:15 p.m.
