    Greg McElroy did put up a career high 315 yards and 2 TDs against his defense in 2010.

    He was held that low because USCe's defense knew exactly who was getting the ball and probably which gap he was going to.

    I'm with Gray on this one, this is good for us. At best, EJ was a decent position coach under Bill Oliver and really hasn't done anything since then. USC would have had a good D with or without him with the way Spurrier is recruiting that state. After we lay 40 on them again next season look for him to bounce over to his next job....

    Re: "Gus Malzahn hires Ellis Johnson as defensive coordinator"

    Reading about his hire I saw where the other Chizik assistant coaches were told they would not be rehired. Are there any exclusions to that? As in Trooper?

    "A long way," he said after being asked how far the Crimson Tide had come since Coach Nick Saban arrived three years ago. "I guess you could say it's the distance from Shreveport to Pasadena."

    They will either retain Trooper or write him a check. Isn't that the way it works down there?

    Re: "Gus Malzahn hires Ellis Johnson as defensive coordinator"

    I read something on another board written by a Southern Miss fan. He had three years left on his contract and was owed $2.1 million. But by his contract, they had to pay him the whole thing right away and they do not get a "discount" from whatever he makes at the Barn, like the deal is with Chizik.

    Either Southern Miss is very stupid or his agent is a genius.

    He coached at South Carolina, not Clemson.
    If God wanted me to be humble, he would have sent me to Auburn.
