What’s in store with this USC podcast:

  • Kliffmania has hit Reign of Troy Radio as Michael and Alicia discuss the biggest news of the week: Kliff Kingsbury is USC’s new offensive coordinator. Listener questions on Kingsbury include conversations on the number of points the Trojans will score, how much autonomy Kinsbury will have and the chance of flipping Texas Tech recruits.
  • Turning the page, the news continues with a look at USC’s newly-released 2019 schedule. How hard is the front end of that schedule and what could the Pac-12 have done to easy the Trojans burden? (Not much).
  • Also in the news, the Pac-12’s All-Conference teams were released on Tuesday and for the first time in a long time, USC didn’t have any first teamers. Who got snubbed and what does it say about USC?
  • This week’s dip into the mailbag covers questions about clear indications that USC is actually making needed changes, the realities of the spread offense, the ceiling for the Trojans in 2019 and season-ticket seat selection.
  • Finally, Michael and Alicia take the time to rundown the responses to the annual RoT survey, looking for ways to improve the show.
