07:29 AM ET 01.30 | Thanks to Max Wittek's Wednesday surprise, USC is now down to three scholarship quarterbacks. [Wittek] will forgo participating in spring practice, graduate at the end of the semester and transfer to another school to play his final two seasons of eligibility, he said Wednesday. Wittek, a fourth-year junior, will be able to play at another school immediately under NCAA rules that allow players who have graduated to transfer without penalty. Wittek said he informed Coach Steve Sarkisian of his decision on Wednesday. ... Wittek said he had not spoken with other schools but would begin doing so after receiving permission-to-contact paperwork from USC. "At the very beginning I'll be open to anything to keep that spectrum open," he said. "I hope to narrow it down to a few schools I feel comfortable with."

he does have UTx coaching staff ties, might make a good backup to Ash so that Swoopes can go ahead and start getting Hback snaps like Belldozier is now

No, the rusty cows and ancient belly draggin' aqua lizards both need "GOOD" QBs not "A" QB.

Belldozer is now playing TE and Wittek is terrible.

Yeah he is. This is USCs version of processing...graduate them and they go away.

ok, will rephrase

would he be a worse backup than Case was last year or Swoopes this year?

Me thinks he is looking for a place where he can be "The Man". Unless, he wants to use this for his Masters degree. Sounds like a good student if he's already through at USC. If the latter in the case, the whole list might look different.

Forgot to answer your question. Yes, Wittek would be an improvement at backup.

No, but you know he wasn't seriously asking that question! It's his boiler plate post.

Only in the Dr's eyes....

Once he get's over his cynicism and gets a little happier it will go away.
