What’s in store with this USC podcast:

  • Michael and Alicia open the episode with some admin, running through the podcast and event schedule for the lead up to the season. Look forward to crossover episodes galore and a jam-packed gameweek plan. Plus a RoTBot meet up and a Yahoo! Pick ‘Em League.
  • The media got a tour of the Coliseum renovations last week, so Alicia gives first impressions of the Scholarship Club Tower’s progress and the addition of viewing terraces on the peristyle end. The logistics of the renovations will have a major impact on fans this year, which means planning ahead and recognizing potential hiccups when it comes to parking and gate entrances.
  • Finally getting to the main event, Fall Camp, Michael and Alicia talk through Saturday’s “weird” scrimmage and the evaluation opportunities for the quarterbacks. They also discuss a long injury report, camp standouts, the cornerback battle and the offensive line.
  • The mailbag is full once more with plenty of topics to cover including:
    • Pete Carroll and the timing of a quarterback decision
    • Physical practices and the pads vs. no pads debate
    • What Clay Helton must do to get fans on his bandwagon
    • Bernard Schirmer’s chances of playing in 2018
    • Aca’Cedric Ware and the starting running back job
    • Daniel Imatorbhebhe and the “what could have been” category
    • And much more
