Family Feud Podcast: Mid-Fall Camp Evaluations

Aug 17, 04:06 AM

The USC football team has made it beyond the halfway point of fall camp, but just how far along are the Trojans? 

Keely Eure and Shotgun Spratling are back in the studio with a new episode of the Family Feud Podcast to discuss that and more. They look at what has happened in the first 10 competitive practices over the first two weeks and evaluate who is pushing themselves to the forefront and who is lagging behind.

The dueling duo jump right into their Stock Up/Stock Down segment to debate who is excelling and who they want to see more from. One of the more interesting cases comes in the form of redshirt junior Ykili Ross. The hybrid defensive back who can play the safety and nickel back positions only had one full practice before tweaking his hamstring. He came out of the spring as the incumbent at the safety spot opposite Marvell Tell III, but having not seen the field in over a week and a half, where does Ross' stock stand?

A podcast this fall camp would not be complete without a discussion of the quarterback competition. Find out where Keely and Shotgun have the quarterbacks in their Stock Up/Stock Down segment and see what impact injuries have had on some of the position battles.

The feuders bring back the "Heard it on the Sidelines..." segment to give you some of the most interesting tidbits they've heard while roaming the sidelines and from speaking with the players and coaches during fall camp, including what everyone is saying about true freshman receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown and how the dynamic between defensive backs coach Ronnie Bradford and new defensive consultant Dave Campo, a former NFL defensive coordinator and head coach, has played out.

Finally, Keely and Shotgun end the show with their Agree/Disagree segment. In this segment, Keely asks if the Trojans should whittle down the quarterback competition after this weekend's scrimmage? The duo also discuss what kind of potential the USC defensive line has this season. Without Uchenna Nwosu, Rasheem Green and Josh Fatu, could the Trojans be even better than last year's team that tied for the most sacks in the nation?

This episode of the Family Feud Podcast concludes with a discussion about season expectations and what type of record should be accepted as a quality season and what will be considered overachieving.
