Marqise Lee to make NFL Draft decision ‘within two weeks’

In the USC Trojans final game of the season, star wide receiver Marqise Lee hauled in seven receptions for 118 yards and two touchdowns. It is very possible that the impressive outing was the final game of Lee’s collegiate career, but we will not know until early next year, according to the wide receiver’s own deadline.

USC Trojans Prove They Are the Most Resilient Team of the College Football Season

For all intents and purposes the USC Trojans should have had a ho hum kind of season. After getting off to such a lackluster start it would not have been unrealistic for them to fumble through the rest of the season. No, instead they turned it around after their head coach was fired going 6-2 to earn a bowl bid and become ranked in the top 25.However, with just one game left the...

USC Looking to End a Tumultuous Season on a High Note in Vegas Bowl

Talk about a long season! The USC Trojans went from being a respected up and coming team to one so bad the head coach had to be fired, but than climbed its way back to respectability thanks to than-interim Head Coach Ed Orgeron--who ended up quitting before the team's bowl game when the interim tag was not removed.Tumultuous? I'd say that's an understatement, but in spite...

USC's Lee still grateful despite down season

LAS VEGAS -- He had 50 catches for 673 yards, two touchdowns and some nagging injuries. It was a junior season that fell short, statistically, of what he accomplished during his sophomore Biletnikoff Award winning campaign. Still, Marqise Lee remains grateful. Football for Marqise Lee is not just a game. It's an outlet. A chance. Growing up believing college was never an option...

Trojans playing for 'Coach O' in Vegas

LOS ANGELES Clay Helton is not Ed Orgeron. He lacks the Cajun drawl, is short a few pounds, and overall less exuberant than the now former USC assistant and recruiting coordinator. That's not to say he's not fiery. He can mix it up on the practice field if need be. The point about him not being Orgeron was expressed when he met with the team for the first time after taking...

Taking advantage: The crafting of USC's MVP Allen

On the night of Aug. 29, 2013 the crafting of an MVP began to take form. Fresh off his team's 30-13 win at Hawaii, Buck Allen sat on the balcony of his hotel room alone with his thoughts. The Trojans were 1-0. Allen was certainly happy about that. His output, however four carries for 18 yards was a little deflating. Allen thought he'd play more. He wasnt alone it that...

USC's Helton brings the energy with Las Vegas Bowl ahead

LOS ANGELES -- During his time roaming the USC sidelines, Lane Kiffin's demeanor was more stoic than exuberant. The majority of the time he didn't show much emotion. His replacement, Ed Orgeron, was the complete opposite, handing out high-fives and chest bumps on the regular. When it comes to "rah-rah" coaches, he certainly fits the bill. USC has now moved on...
