"Saw some rumors about the program regarding Helton and Swann, so I called a friend who works in the agent world. He helps represent college football coaches. He said that almost everyone in the industry is skeptical of Clay Helton as a coach because he hasn't coached under anyone who has run a successful program before. He doesn't know the USC situation well but he said Lynn Swann is very connected to the power players behind the scenes in college football, and so he probably knows Helton is a big gamble for USC. He said he was personally surprised at how bad Max Browne looked against Alabama even though Helton had been grooming him for years. My friend only saw USC play Alabama and Penn State this year"
