What’s in store with this USC podcast:

  • The news section focuses first on updates from the coronavirus pandemic and the return to athletics activities. Given approval by the NCAA and Pac-12 to reopen athletic facilities in June, it now appears that USC is on track to kickoff preparations for the 2020 season on time. Alicia runs through the specific policy plan that will need to be in place for the Trojans when they get back on campus.
  • The news continues with the commitment of three-star offensive tackle Saia Mapakaitolo out of Alemany High School. What does his pledge mean for the Trojans?
  • The second half of the show concerns three wishes granted by a genie. Basically, the RoT duo imagine what life might be like if USC could switch rosters and coaching staffs with other teams, bring back graduated players, or give an injured player from USC history their games missed back.
