What’s in store with this USC podcast:

  • The show opens with Michael and Alicia discussing the eternal nature of the stay-at-home order before attention turns to the news.
  • Yes, news is still happening around USC. The RoT duo discuss the Trojans’ place in Stewart Mandel’s most recent Top 25, which shows how quickly USC’s hype train could take off in 2020. Plus, there is a discussion of 2021 mock drafts including Jay Tufele, Talanoa Hufanga, and Alijah Vera-Tucker.
  • FCS Hampton tackle KJ Wilson has USC in his Top 4, what does that say about the Trojans’ confidence in their existing offensive line stock? Michael and Alicia disagree slightly.
  • On the basketball side of things, Elijah Weaver unexpectedly entered the transfer portal on Tuesday. How will that impact the transfer-heavy Trojans?
  • Of course there has to be a discussion of the latest on the COVID-19 front. With USC’s Summer Session II officially online, how will Fall Camp be impacted?
  • Finally, the show ends with a multi-point discussion of the NFL Draft. What did Michael and Alicia make of USC’s selections and non-selections? What record did Ohio State take from the Trojans? How is Notre Dame fudging their all-time draft numbers? And is USC doing enough to develop its talent for the draft?
