Fall camp is in full swing...and now unofficially over as USC football turns to mock game week and then prepares for its season opener against Fresno State after hosting a Fall Showcase event at the Coliseum on Saturday.
The Fall Showcase gave the fans a first look at some of the Coliseum renovations and USC's new Graham Harrell-led Air Raid style of offense. It also gave the media a final look at the Trojans practicing this season as media access for the first time will now be restricted to only the first 20 minutes of Tuesday and Wednesday practices, which basically accounts for the team stretching and one or two individual drills each day.
That put extra emphasis on the Fall Showcase, particularly with a four-man quarterback competition still taking place between JT Daniels, Jack Sears, Matt Fink and Kedon Slovis, and the action on the field as the Trojans scrimmaged for 87 minutes. Keely Eure and Shotgun Spratling return for a new episode of the Family Feud Podcast to break down all the action of fall camp and what took place during USC's sneak peak on Saturday.
The USCfootball.com dynamic duo return to their in-season format with Stock Up/Stock Down, Heard it on the Sidelines and Agree/Disagree segments before answering all of your listener-submitted questions (of which there were many). During the Stock Up portion, Keely and Shotgun both point out where defensive linemen continue to have success, with freshman Drake Jackson's stock continuing to point toward the sky. But he's not the only freshman defender that has caught the eye of both Keely and Shotgun. Inside linebacker Ralen Goforth continues to get a lot of opportunities during team and scrimmage portions and is making the most of the them making plays seemingly every practice.
But not everything is peachy for the cardinal and gold. The Family Feudsters also break down what aspects of USC football are seeing their stock decline, including the Trojans' offensive line that was unable to establish a rushing attack at all during the Fall Showcase.
The feudsters conclude with your questions, trying to answer the more than 15 questions you guys submitted, tackling topics such as emulation of Nick Saban, draft eligibility, fall camp adjustments, short yardage situations, starting quarterback dissidents, shutout streaks, balancing evaluations, recruiting attractors and sideline demeanors. Needless to say this episode is overbrimming with debates of a variety of fall camp topics.
