    LOS ANGELES -- Three USC players have been declared out for the season with injuries, further depleting the NCAA-sanctioned Trojans' shaky depth.

    Cornerback Devian Shelton, offensive tackle Zach Banner and defensive end Greg Townsend Jr. won't play for the Trojans this year, coach Lane Kiffin said after practice Thursday night.

    The 6-foot-9 Banner will need hip surgery, Kiffin said. The freshman redshirted last season and joined the men's basketball team, although he didn't play.

    Townsend was a backup defensive end last season as a redshirt freshman. He needs surgery on his knee.

    Shelton is a freshman who redshirted last season. He needs foot surgery.

    USC (3-1) is traveling to Arizona State with just 56 recruited scholarship players.

    Tailback Silas Redd is traveling. He hasn't played this year with a knee injury.

    I bet Silas Redd wishes now that he'd stayed at Penn State. :lol:

    The OL has big issues going forward.

    They are worse than an FCS team in depth, but over a 4* average across the board. I'm glad we play them late as this situation will not get better and I have no confidence that their "superior coaching skills" will fix the current offensive woes.

    If Kiffin is still coaching when they come to Boulder, I like our chances. If he's been fired by then, I don't. A trained monkey could get more out of that team than Kiffin.

    No sympathy for USC, but I feel for the players.

    May as well throw this in here:

    If Kiffin is fired, the first thing HCMM should do is offer Joe Baxter a truckload of money to replace Neinas as our ST Coordinator.

    FIFY Yeah, Lee has just been knockin' 'em dead in the U$C return game!

    Haven't seen Neinas miss a tackle yet. His players? (many of whom were right there on PR/KO coverage) Not so much.

    You realize Baxter made a name for himself at Fresno State more than USC, right? They led the nation in blocked kicks for a 6-7 year period.
