What’s in store with this USC podcast:

  • The big news of the week obviously revolves around USC’s Spring Showcase on Saturday. What were the takeaways from the day on Cromwell Field and who did the most to stand out? Plus, since Clay Helton finally gave an injury update on Saturday, it’s time for a rundown of all the players who will or won’t finish camp this week.
  • If you were on social media this weekend, it would have been hard to miss the drama which sprung up between JuJu Smith-Schuster and his former Steeler’s teammate Antonio Brown. Michael and Alicia explore the importance of “keeping your emotions off the internet” and the ways Smith-Schuster has stayed one of the most likeable football players on the planet.
  • Diving into the mailbag, the RoT duo take questions on Helton’s persona at practice, the possibility of making a New Year’s Six bowl, determining the worst AD in Los Angeles, games to look forward to in 2019 and more.
