After ESPN’s Paolo Uggetti reported that the rumor that Jordan Addison had picked USC football for zero money was false, SC fans have understandably laughed at all the USC whiners that have been crying about it ever since Addison entered the portal.
Uggetti reported that the opportunity to play alongside Caleb Williams, with whom Addison previously had a strong relationship, was a major factor in his decision. He also reported that a source confirmed that “this was more about football than NIL. (Addison) could have gotten more money from schools alongside USC.”
Not only Trojan fans but also former Trojan players took to Twitter to speak out about the USC hatred that was proven to be 100% false and delusional after the transfer. First it was ex-USC linebacker Dion Bailey who got in on the fun:
Next, it was ex-Trojan offensive lineman Jalen McKenzie who spoke out about the weird USC football haters:
What Dion Bailey and Jalen McKenzie said about USC football and Jordan Addison hit on some topics no one should ever forget.
USC has 11 national championships. This is the second of all time. You have seven Heisman Trophies. This is the first ever. They have produced 14 Pro Football Hall of Famers. This is also the first ever.
They just hired the best offense coach in the game and secured a top-three QB in the nation with whom Addison already has chemistry. Why exactly would Addison NOT want to play for SC? Also an elite academic institution, there’s not much Addison wouldn’t address.
Also, USC just produced the best wideout in college football last year (Drake London was the all-time favorite for the Biletnikoff Award before he was eliminated for the season in Game #8), which also became the first WR to be picked in the NFL draft was last month (eighth overall).
That was the worst year in the history of the program, with an offensive coordinator in the Group of Five and a defensive head coach who had never been a coordinator before. Donte Williams has proven to be an excellent defensive coach, but he just wasn’t ready to become head coach.
Addison simply understands that if SC can turn out a Drake London even if they are literally the worst in history, imagine what they can do with Lincoln Riley helming the show. Common sense cried out for Addison to go to the second best college football program in history.
Delusional USC haters who obviously don’t know much about football don’t seem to get it, but Bailey and McKenzie continued to set the record straight.
