Dedeaux Download: Why it's not yet time to panic after Trojans fall flat in MLB Desert Invitational

2/20/2024
Shotgun Spratling and Jack Smith return with another episode of the Dedeaux Download Podcast to open the 2024 regular season. They break down USC baseball's disappointing opening weekend where the Trojans went winless in the MLB Desert Invitational in Arizona, falling to BYU (8-1), Grand Canyon (8-1) and Ohio State (5-2). The Trojans managed only 12 hits and four runs on the weekend with Jacob Galloway supplying nearly half of that output himself in one of the lone bright spots for the offense. USC struck out 31 times in three games and struggled mightily when it got runners on base, going just 2 for 34 (.059), and were even worse with runners in scoring position, going 1 for 25 (.040). But the offense wasn't the only area of concern for the Trojans. The pitching allowed 19 walks, and the defense committed six errors. Shotgun and Jack break down all the action from the 0-3 opening weekend, assess the current concern level for the Trojans and look forward to the upcoming week of action that has the Trojans slated to play five games with midweek contests against UC San Diego and Loyola Marymount before hosting Portland this weekend at Great Park in Irvine.

Coach Harvey Hyde gives his thoughts on the new USC defensive coaching staff

2/19/2024
On this episode of the Peristyle Podcasts hosts Ryan Abraham and Coach Harvey Hyde are back together talking about the recent USC football press conference where head coach Lincoln Riley introduced the new members of the defensive coaching staff, defensive coordinator D’Anton Lynn, defensive line coach Eric Henderson, linebackers coach Matt Entz and secondary coach Doug Belk. Coach Hyde starts off the show talking about how impressed he was with these new coaches and thought the press conference was the best one USC has had since Riley arrived at Troy. He loved how they were able to talk about their coaching philosophies as well as why they decided to leave good jobs and become a Trojan assistant coach. The coaches all showed great football knowledge and provided honest answers about the potential of the defense while embracing the tradition of the program. Coach Hyde felt it was enlightening to hear four coaches talk about their players and what they are going to try and accomplish. Riley made a statement when he went out and hired a very qualified group of coaches with great defensive minds. Coaches that are not afraid to address the issues they face and how they want to teach defensive fundamentals that will create a team defense, not a bunch of individuals. They also recognized that having a better defense isn’t enough, they have to be able to give the offense looks in practice and make that side of the ball better as well. Coach Hyde feels that this defense will be fundamentally stronger with players understanding their assignments and the overall schemes better. They will be better coached with the proper knowledge to play and perform at high levels. Players will be taught and they will know what they need to do, enabling them to perform at full speed. Lynn said it best, explaining how he wants to teach the basics and start slow, allowing every player on the team to know what is expected of them. He also feels it is important to fit the scheme to the personnel and not the other way around. CLICK HERE for 30% OFF an annual VIP membership to USCFootball.com!

USC Triple-Double Podcast: Silent assassin senior guard Kayla Padilla joins the show

2/15/2024
The USC Triple-Double Podcast returns with co-hosts Shotgun Spratling and Connor Morrissette (aka Mr. Triple Double) breaking down the Women of Troy's home sweep of the Arizona schools as well as the deflating and then demoralizing trip to the Bay Area for the men's basketball team where the Trojans lost a winnable game in overtime and then got destroyed by more than 30 poitns. The Women of Troy remain at No. 10 in the Associated Press top 25 poll and at No. 16 in the NET rankings before the first unveiling of the projected top 16 seeds after defeating Arizona State and Arizona behind a pair of 30+ point performances from JuJu Watkins, who now has nine 30+ outings on the season. The Trojans remain tied for fourth in the Pac-12 standings before a challenging trip to Eugene and Corvallis. The men's team remains in the cellar, tied with Oregon State for last place in the conference standings. Shotgun and Connor break down all the latest action for both teams, including looking closely at JuJu Watkins' elite free throw shooting. They also discuss the return of Isaiah Collier, who took over in the second half of the matchup against California, carrying the team down the stretch. They also take a look at a quiet week from Bronny James despite a loud rumor about his father LeBron James. The podcasting duo also look at the positives and negatives of the recent USC basketball action from both squads and look forward to the next week to preview what lies ahead. For the men, they try to recover from a Stanford game where they gave up a 25-0 run with home matchups against Utah and Colorado, who have struggled on the road this season. The Women of Troy will head to Oregon to take on the Ducks and the Beavers in their arenas. After the break, senior guard Kayla Padilla joins the show to discuss her transition from being the Ivy League's leading scorer to being a facilitator and spot-up sniper for the Women of Troy. Padilla also talks about playing alongside former Ivy League rivals and beside stud freshman JuJu Watkins and tells us about what it means to play in front of her fellow Filipino-Americans in Los Angeles.

2/13/2024
The Dedeaux Download podcast, part of the Peristyle Podcast family of shows, returns with the 2024 college baseball season starting this week. Shotgun Spratling and Jack Smith return to preview what USC baseball is going to look like on the mound in Year 2 under the leadership of pitching coach and Trojans' legend Seth Etherton. After previewing the season's challenges and the team's hitting the last two weeks, the podcasting duo turn their focus to the sacred circle that is the pitcher’s mound to dive into what the Trojans have on the pitching side. Similar to the offensive side, USC has a lot more options this season as the coaching staff has been able to build the depth of the squad. Shotgun and Jack also supply superlatives for the Trojan pitchers, giving their picks for the team's best pitcher, most impactful newcomer and breakout candidates among others. That all comes after Shotgun and Jack talk with USC pitching coach Seth Etherton about his group, which includes several experienced returners and simultaneously several exciting newcomers. Etherton discusses who he's most intrigued by and who could be poised for a breakout campaign. He also chats about the impact of having three starters returning and where each of those three -- Caden Aoki, Tyler Stromsborg and Eric Hammond -- have all improved their games. Among other players that are brought up, Etherton talks about the the impact CSUN transfer Xavier Martinez could have as a swing pitcher capable of filling a variety of roles on the staff and how freshman lefty Mason Edwards has pushed his way into potentially starting in the midweek.

2/7/2024
The Dedeaux Download podcast, part of the Peristyle Podcast family of shows, returns with the 2024 college baseball season barely a week away.

USC Triple-Double Podcast: JuJu Watkins scores 51! + Chris Capko updates Isaiah Collier's status, talks cathartic breakthrough win

2/6/2024
Co-hosts Shotgun Spratling and Connor Morrissette (aka Mr. Triple Double) are back with another episode of the USC Triple-Double Podcast, and this week's episode is perhaps the longest yet. But when someone breaks the school scoring record, a podcast episode deserves to go a couple minutes longer. The co-hosts do a deep dive break down of the Women of Troy's road sweep in the Bay Area where freshman sensation JuJu Watkins became the first player in women's basketball this season to score 50+ points, setting a new USC record with 51 points in an upset of No. 4 Stanford. The Women of Troy jump five spots to No. 10 in the Associated Press top 25 poll after their defeat of the Cardinal and a come-from-behind-and-pull-away win in Berkeley over California. The Trojans also climbed in the Pac-12 standings, moving into a tie for fourth place with UCLA, and have a favorable schedule moving forward. The men's team avoiding falling into a two-game deficit in last place with a 28-point win over Oregon State to snap its lengthy losing streak. Shotgun and Connor break down all the latest action for both teams, including looking closely at all the standout numbers from Watkins' 51-point effort and celebrating everything that accompanied the record-breaking performance. They also discuss Collier's return to a team that seems to be having the most fun it's had in a long time and spotlight the elevated play of Bronny James, particularly with the ball in his hands when he had 13 assists to two turnovers last week. The podcasting duo also look at the positives and negatives of the recent USC basketball action from both squads and look forward to the next week to preview what lies ahead. For the men, they try to carry their momentum on the road as they try to follow the women's lead and look for their own Bay Area sweep. The Women of Troy will host the Arizona schools at home where they'll have to avoid a letdown from their excellent road trip. That's all after USC men's associate head coach Chris Capko graciously takes the time to join the show for an in-depth interview about the Trojans finally breaking free from a five-game losing streak amid improved play from young guards Oziyah Sellers and Boogie Ellis. Capko also updates the status of freshman point guard Isaiah Collier, who has missed the last six games, and when he could from a broken hand. Collier's return could potentially bring USC back to full strength for the final nine games of the regular season. Please review, rate and subscribe to the Peristyle Podcast on Apple Podcasts!

Coach Harvey Hyde on USC preparing to enter a new world of Big Ten football

2/4/2024
On this episode of the Peristyle Podcasts hosts Ryan Abraham and Coach Harvey Hyde are back together talking about all of the latest news and notes surrounding the USC football program. The traditional signing day will not be very exciting for the Trojans but there have been some moves on the staff plus Coach Hyde talks a lot about what head coach Lincoln Riley needs to do to get the program ready to join the Big Ten. The guys start off talking about the staff with Kliff Kingsbury reportedly withdrawing his name from the Las Vegas Raiders offensive coordinator job. USC also added a new defensive analyst to the staff with Skyler Jones coming over from Oregon to work alongside defensive line coach Eric Henderson as a defensive analyst. Jones was with the Ducks last year and worked with Henderson at the Rams in 2022. Coach Hyde gives his thoughts on the high profile coaches added to the defensive staff and how the power dynamic could work. Coach also gives his thoughts on the Big Ten and SEC coming to an agreement and how this could eventually set up its own association that would take over some of the NCAA duties and govern the powers of college football separately. Who does Coach Hyde think would be the best person to run the new organization? None other than former Alabama head coach Nick Saban. Looking ahead to joining the Big Ten conference Coach Hyde talks about the landscape with powers like Ohio State and Michigan, the dropoff after those two programs and how the Pac-12 could stack up top to bottom with the Big Ten. He feels that USC needs to go in without being intimidated and have confidence the Trojans can compete like they have in the Rose Bowl against Big Ten powers over the years. Coach also had a good idea for a way Riley can get some good intel on his new conference, befriend new Charges head coach Jim Harbaugh. Coach thinks Riley and Harbaugh can exchange ideas and help each other now that he is in the NFL and in the same city. They end the show with Coach Hyde talking about UNLV transfer quarterback Jayden Maiava and how he should be a good fit in the offense as a backup to Miller Moss. Coach says he is big, strong, talented but not ready to play in the Big Ten yet. He has a lot of potential but feels USC needs to bring him along slowly.

Dedeaux Download: USC baseball 2024 season preview + HC Andy Stankiewicz joins to discuss Trojans' playing without home stadium

2/2/2024
The Dedeaux Download podcast, part of the Peristyle Podcast family of shows, returns after a lengthy hiatus as the college baseball season approaches. Shotgun Spratling and Jack Smith are back to break down the latest news and developments around the USC baseball program, including the big 'groundbreaking' 'development' on the west side of campus where Dedeaux Field is being torn down and rebuilt, leaving the Trojans without a home field for the 2024 (and likely 2025) seasons. The podcasting duo look at the different angles of a season on the road and how that will be a major hurdle for a team that had a ton of momentum after an outstanding first season under head coach Andy Stankiewicz. They also take a look back to the 2023 season to assess what went well, where the Trojans are set up for success in 2024 and where they'll have to make improvements in their final Pac-12 season. USC head coach Andy Stankiewicz then joins the Dedeaux Download to talk about the unique challenges the Trojans will have this season and how his team is approaching it...with an 'open-door policy' (though maybe not the type you are thinking). He also discusses the foundation built last season and how his team can build off of that this year Stankiewicz provides updates on some potential breakout candidates for the season as well as what newcomers could make an immediate impact and discusses what areas he's still looking to learn more about his team. He is also asked about dual-sport athlete Duce Robinson and where he stands after joining the baseball team in January after a strong freshman campaign with Lincoln Riley and the football team. Robinson will face some stiff competition for playing time as Stankiewicz is looking forward to having more depth on both sides of the ball, but with that comes a lot of extra decision making that he'll have to do.

The constantly changing world of NIL with states AGs now suing the NCAA

1/31/2024
In this edition of the Peristyle Podcast hosts Ryan Abraham and Connor Morrissette (aka "Triple Double") are back in studio following up on their conversation with USC athletic director Jen Cohen about the Trojans NIL efforts. The guys talk about the current state of NIL for the Trojans and the ever changing landscape Cohen talked about in our interview, with the attorney generals from Virginia and Tennessee now suing the NCAA alleging that their restrictions on high school or NCAA Transfer Portal players receiving compensation from collectives is illegal. The NCAA has attempted to put "guardrails" around NIL compensation and players ability to transfer and every time it does the courts have got involved. This latest lawsuit would allow schools to use NIL as an inducement for recruits and transfers, a practice currently not allowed according to the NCAA. USC is one of the programs that has followed all of the NCAA rules when it comes to NIL compensation being used as an inducement in the recruiting process. If these lawsuits are successful and the NCAA drops the inducement rule, it would open up the door for the Trojans to attempt to play the same game some of their rivals are playing. The guys also talk about the Trojan football coaches hitting the recruiting trail hard with the new defensive staff really picking things up quickly.

USC Triple-Double Podcast: Fiery Lindsay Gottlieb on Women of Troy bouncing back after lackluster showing

1/31/2024
The USC Triple-Double Podcast returns with co-hosts Shotgun Spratling and Connor Morrissette (aka Mr. Triple Double) breaking down the Women of Troy's home split against the Washington schools where the Trojans looked good for a half, terrible for two halves, good for a quarter and then not good enough for a final quarter. They also look at USC men's basketball's trying to break free from a five-game losing streak. The Women of Troy remain slid four spots to No. 15 in the Associated Press top 25 poll after their loss to Washington. It is the lowest ranking for the Trojans since the first in-season poll was released. The struggles for the men's team continued as the Trojans lost the first iteration of the Crosstown Showdown to a UCLA team that has had similar woes as USC but seems to be improving as the stretch run of the season nears. Shotgun and Connor break down all the latest action for both teams, including looking closely at JuJu Watkins' shooting and efficiency, discussing the possibility of Isaiah Collier sitting out longer than anticipated and focusing the spotlight on Bronny James who did not start for the first time in three weeks with Boogie Ellis returning to the starting lineup. The podcasting duo also look at the positives and negatives of the recent USC basketball action from both squads and look forward to the next week to preview what lies ahead. For the men, they prepare the Galen Center for battles with Oregon and Oregon State, who both defeated the Trojans earlier this season, while the Women of Troy get ready for a huge road trip. USC women's head coach Lindsay Gottlieb joins the show to discuss the road trip to her old stomping grounds as the Trojans take on her former rival, Stanford and Tara VanDerveer, and her former squad at Cal, but more importantly, a fired-up Gottlieb discusses what the Women of Troy have to do to bounce back after a lackluster performance against Washington led to a disappointing loss. She discusses how the offense gets back on track and what the coaching staff is doing to monitor star freshman JuJu Watkins' usage levels.
