Alicia de Artola is joined by special guest Trent Goodrich to react to USC’s Signing Day haul of…almost nothing, plus coaching changes and more.

What’s in store with this USC podcast:

  • Alicia and Trent open the podcast trying to figure out if Wednesday was indeed Signing Day…because it sure didn’t feel like it.
  • The news segment looks at USC’s addition of Jack Yary to round out the class of 2020 as well as the Trojans’ miss of Michael Drennen and low recruiting rankings.
  • Bigger than any Signing Day news this week was the firing of three defensive coaches and the hiring of Craig Naiver and John David Baker. Will USC miss any of the departing staff?
  • The show finishes up with a mailbag, including the wave of response we got to last week’s debate over USC’s hypothetical ranking in the very unlikely event the Trojans beat Alabama.
