What’s in store with this USC podcast:

  • As always, the show begins with the news, which means backtracking to last week to discuss Matt Fink’s transfer decision. Also, the NCAA approved changes to overtime and targeting rules. Are we for or against the adjustments?
  • There’s even more NCAA news to discuss, with bombshell testimony in the FBI hoops probe which alleges illegal payments to football players from major universities like Alabama and Notre Dame. Meanwhile, there’s new conversations being had around Reggie Bush and his indefinite ban from USC. Michael and Alicia tie it all together.
  • Later this week, USC’s pro hopefuls will look forward to hearing their names called at the NFL Draft. Where are the likes of Chuma Edoga, Porter Gustin, Iman Marshall, Cameron Smith and Marvell Tell projected to land? And what does it say about USC that so many once-heralded players aren’t vying for higher draft places?
  • In this week’s mailbag, Michael and Alicia answer questions from listeners which include:
    • Will the offensive line be better?
    • What are the positives and negatives of Jack Sears and JT Daniels?
    • Who is the best player at each position right now?
    • Will Alabama and Clemson have more first rounders than USC has draftees?
    • And more.
