What’s in store with this USC podcast:

  • News broke just before Michael and Alicia started recording this week’s episode, which was good timing because the Trojans picked up a new commit in Jamar Sekona. What do you need to know about the three-star defensive tackle?
  • Season tickets have finally been shipped, which means we now know which players will feature on each ticket. Does it matter that JT Daniels wasn’t included?
  • Diving into a Fall Camp preview, the RoT duo discuss major questions hanging over USC this August, including the effectiveness of Clay Helton’s changes, the quarterback battle and the rebuilt secondary.
  • Keeping on the topic of Fall Camp, Michael and Alicia offer up predictions for some practice superlatives like players with the most to prove and the most to lose.
  • The show ends as usual by opening the mailbag, which features a debate-inducing question about Pac-12 leadership and more.

The return of Fall Camp means the renewal of practice content on the Reign of Troy Patreon. Get a full report of the happenings on Howard Jones Field each day with Alicia’s “Practice Carcast.” Then go “Inside the Scum,” hearing directly from players after practice.

Of course, all that practice content is on top of regular RoT Patreon shows including “Takes with Jake,” covering general college football with Jake Merrifield from the What’s Bruin Show, and “RoTBots Choice,” with topics selected by listeners.
