Hank Gathers February 11, 1967-March 4, 1990

88686745

When I see the above photograph, it’s hard to believe 19 years have passed since it was first captured. The old saying goes that a picture is worth a thousand words, but the story told is dependent of the receiving eyes. The young may see it as just another cover, marking just another moment in …

Closing The Book On Lane Kiffin

Tempe Arizona became the final stop on the Lane Kiffin farewell tour. Though Pat Haden came out publicly to say the head coach’s job was “safe”, after a 7-6 finish in 2012, those words were easily read as false to anyone following and knowing the expectations of USC football . Truth is that Kiffin began …

USC Responds With 35-7 Drubbing of Boston College

It was a tough seven days for the Southern California football program. The home opening loss to Washington State wasn’t easy to swallow, and following days were spent absorbing shots from the media, who mercilessly took aim and fired at will. Only two games into the season, USC found itself in an odd predicament. The …

Eddie Vanderdoes reopens recruitment

eddie-vanderdoes

From “first come, first serve”, to the incredible shrinking class, Southern California exemplifies the fluctuation and instability of recruiting. It wasn’t long ago that USC had 18 commitments for 2013, with the group rated as the top incoming class in the nation. Then came November, and the decommitment of Max Redfield. By early December, it …

Eldridge Massington committed to USC just two days after receiving a formal offer from Lane Kiffin and staff. That was in early May, and it set a west coast course for the Texas native. By early December, the 4-star prospect withdrew his verbal promise and reopened recruitment. And it would take just 13 days for …

The Cal Bears have announced Sonny Dykes as their new head football coach. The hire comes just 15 days after the program parted ways with Jeff Tedford, and four days after Louisiana Tech rejected a bowl invitation.

Game 8 wrap-up: Winners and Losers

ap-photo-wily-low

Arizona 39, USC 36 Arizona provided all the elements for a trap game, but it was USC that assisted in snaring itself. Two things I’ve emphasized in past weeks is the record of season opponents and Trojan penalties. Through those figures we could see that it wasn’t the foreign venue or red clad Wildcats staging …

Preview: USC at Utah

utah

The Trojans will meet the Utes in a game previously promoted as the greatest event in Utah football history. A lot has changed since then, beginning with a Southern California loss to Stanford and fall from the top 10. Instead of facing the No. 1 team in America, the Utes will face a thirteenth ranked …

16937554_bg1

For those waiting to see the negative effects of NCAA mandated scholarship reductions, the wait becomes longer.  The Trojans have yet to hit a snag on the recruiting trail, and continue to stockpile quality for what they will lack in quantity. Wednesday exemplified the effort and focus of the coaching staff, as three big body …
