I had to laugh at the letter from John Wolcott (Viewpoint, Oct. 11) about this being the time to praise Ted Tollner. After seeing the Trojans fall apart in the second half against Oregon and then continue the collapse in the embarrassing loss to mediocre Washington State, I have to wonder if Ted Tollner continues to have any supporters.
The Washington State debacle was USC's ninth 20-points-or-greater loss in his 3 1/2 years. In the preceding 20 years, there were only six such losses. If I were USC, I would be inquiring about the availability of a Tom Osborne or Howard Schnellenberger for next season.
