What’s in store with this USC podcast:

  • The show opens with some sad news as former USC offensive lineman Max Tuerk tragically passed away over Father’s Day weekend.
  • On Tuesday, the Trojans finally released a plan for the return of student-athletes to campus. That means welcoming back local players on Wednesday while phasing the return of non-locals. It also involves a bunch of rules and regulations to help mitigate coronavirus concerns. Are those measures enough? Does this seem like a good plan given the outbreaks happening all over the country. Michael and Alicia discuss.
  • What does the ACL injury for Kyle Ford mean for USC? Alicia argues people aren’t paying enough attention to the Trojans’ major depth concerns at wide receiver.
  • It’s a packed mailbag this week. The RoT hosts tackle questions on face masks during football games, disbanded alumni associations, USC’s plan for reduced capacity in the Coliseum, the band’s involvement in the season, Clay Helton’s future with the Trojans, the best USC WRs of the decade, burger joints and more.
