With all the sanctions hammered on the Trojans, here is Coach Ed Orgeron’s sales pitch to potential recruits.
Why you should play football at USC according to Coach O:
“Here’s the deal. You’re going to play for a great university with a great tradition. That hasn’t changed. Next, you’re going to get a great education here. That, for sure, is never changing. Third thing is, you’re going to come here to be coached by a great staff. That’s there. The fourth thing is, you’re going to come here to play for a national-championship (caliber) football team. You’re still going to do that. You’re not going to come here for one game.”
“You’re only a freshman. As of right now, your first year, we cannot go to a bowl. That’s it. You may get redshirted, you may not. You may have three or four years to play for a national championship.”
