What’s in store with this USC podcast:

  • Michael and Alicia dive into the news, headlined by Jack Sears’ decision to transfer along with some injury updates from practice.
  • Of course, the real star of the show is the first game preview of the season, breaking down what to expect from the Bulldogs and Trojans. How will departures impact Fresno State, particularly at quarterback? What areas present the greatest concerns.
  • The return of game previews means the return of Over/Under. Michael and Alicia make their picks with everyone wondering: Is this the season Michael redeems his dismal Over/Under record?
  • In this week’s mailbag, the RoT team tackles questions about 9:00 a.m. kickoffs, Heisman Trophy candidates at wide receiver, running into a loaded box and more.
