Lincoln Riley, Shane Lee explain how UCLA comeback shows how far USC has come in Year 1

Lincoln Riley and his USC squad pulled out the win this weekend in a shootout with No. 16 UCLA, defeating the Bruins 48-45. The win moves the Trojans up to the No. 5 spot in the AP Poll, their first top-five appearance since 2017. They also secured themselves a spot in the Pac-12 Championship game in their win on Saturday, something that may have seemed improbable this offseason as they built their newly constructed team primarily through the transfer portal. Riley was asked what the biggest sign of growth was from the offseason to now that he saw on display from his team this weekend.

Pac-12 Media Day: Caleb Williams, Shane Lee reflect on shifting culture at USC

If you had a bingo sheet for what USC needed to fix when Lincoln Riley was hired as head coach, culture could have been the free space right square in the middle. The Trojans took a culture hit under Clay Helton becoming a program lacking accountability and structure. Riley immediately turned that around when hired. There began to be accountability and consequences for the wrong choices on and off the field.

Three Pac-12 Media Day questions for USC's Shane Lee

Pac-12 Media Day pops off this Friday. Most coaches consider it the true start of the new football season, so for that reason alone it’s worth marking. Each team will be sending its head coach and two selected players. Lincoln Riley, Caleb Williams, and Shane Lee will represent the Trojans at the day-long event set to begin with opening remarks from Commissioner George Kliavkoff at 8 a.m. PT / 9 a.m. MT on Friday, July 29, followed by a media availability with Commissioner Kliavkoff, Senior Associate Commissioner of Football Operations Merton Hanks and Stanford Athletic Director and Chair of the Pac-12 Athletics Directors Committee Bernard Muir. All 12 head coaches and 24 student-athletes will then begin a circuit of availability beginning at 8:45 a.m. PT / 9:45 a.m. MT, with each head coach press conference available via Pac-12 Insider, Pac-12.com and the Pac-12 Now app. This often ends up as the best chance to talk to coaches and players simply because everybody’s undefeated and nobody’s under the stress of the season.

USC Trojans' LB Shane Lee praises teammate Austin Jones

The USC Trojans have immense hype heading into the new season but aren’t widely projected to win the Pac-12 Championship under coach Lincoln Riley in year one. A large reason is due to uncertainty regarding the defensive side of the ball; there’s a common cliche that “iron sharpens iron” and that seems to be the case with linebacker Shane Lee who finds himself motivated by running back Austin Jones.

USC LB Shane Lee assesses defense and talks about getting settled in Los Angeles

One of the most consistent themes of spring practice for USC has been the impact of linebacker Shane Lee. The transfer from Alabama has impressed both players and coaches on and off the field. Head coach Lincoln Riley said of Lee’s leadership with the new staff trying to implement its schemes and its culture, “It’s been critical.” When asked to identify defenders who had impressed this spring, senior left guard Andrew Vorhees went right to Lee. “Super impressed with Shane Lee so far and just his maturity and what he brings to the table,” Vorhees said after USC’s first spring practice at the Coliseum on Tuesday (4/12). Lee has had to battle through injuries but it appears he is very much in the mix at the top of USC’s depth chart to this point, and he talked about where the defense was coming out of the Trojans’ Thursday practice.
