What’s in store with this USC podcast:

  • After a short, but random discussion on state capitals, the state of Kentucky and two Bowling Greens, the news segment opens with a quick update on Chris Steele and Bru McCoy before jumping into the big story of the week: Three-star recruits. Since USC has added three new three-stars to their 2020 and 2021 recruiting classes in the past week, Michael and Alicia buckle up for the annual tradition of explaining how three-star commits are not the enemy.
  • More news revolves around Josh Imatorbhebhe’s transfer destination and the most outrageous “Urban Meyer to USC” rumor yet.
  • Bill Connelly’s outstanding offseason preview series finally hit USC late last week, so the RoT Crew breaks down his findings and what they say about the Trojans’ upcoming season.
  • A chunk of the mailbag touches on last week’s heated debate over the Fresno State game and whether or not a 10-point win would be satisfactory. Then Michael and Alicia take questions on the best road trips for 2019, USC (or UCLA) playing in the Rams new stadium, and the forgotten impact of Tyson Helton.
