UCLA students have a message for USC

The UCLA Bruins and the USC Trojans play one another this weekend. Unlike years past, the Bruins have a legit shot at beating the Kiffikins. So you can’t fault the students living in the dorms for some trash talk prior to it. They were very creative this year. Have to say, I can’t disagree. And [...]

Notre Dame's lone #1 vote in the coaches poll came from Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly

Earlier this season, USC head coach Lane Kiffin fell into a bit of controversy (hard to believe, I know) when he proudly proclaimed to the world that he would not vote USC #1 in the USA Today Coaches Poll.  Kiffin then looked like an knucklehead (hard to believe, I know) when it was revelaed he did indeed vote USC #1 in the coaches poll.   Now, with those votes actually meaning...

Tennessee gets penalized by NCAA for Kiffin-era infractions.

The Lane Kiffin era at Tennessee lasted for one brief shining season, but the legacy of the former Vols/current USC head football coach lives on in the form of NCAA sanctions. To makes things worse for The Vols, the NCAA just decided to add on some new sanctions to go along with the pre-existing ones. Blame these on former Vols' defensive backs coach Mack Garza, who paid for...

USC Trojans: Is Lane Kiffin Coaching For His Job At USC Over Final Few Games Of 2012 NCAA Football Season?

The USC Trojans were expecting big things in 2012. They had Heisman Trophy favorite Matt Barkley back at quarterback to lead them back to a BCS Championship, as well as an experienced and talented wide receiving corps plus a top running back transfer in Silas Redd from the Penn State Nittany Lions. Everything seemed to be lining up for Lane Kiffin to lead USC to a national championship...

McDonald playing for infinite bragging rights

LOS ANGELES --- T.J. McDonald is a USC Trojan through and through. When he was "younger than I can remember" one of his most prized possessions was a USC sweatsuit. It was the first sweatsuit he ever owned and he loved it. The fact that the letters U, S, and C were on it couldn't make him happier, and he always loved USC. As he puts it, he's living a dream. After...

"Moody" McNeal goes off...

USC needed depth at tailback coming into the 2012 season. They got it with the addition of Penn State transfer Silas Redd. But with the addition of Redd has also meant less time for senior Curtis McNeal. With Redd unavailable against Arizona State, McNeal proved he can still be a go-to guy for the Trojans.

College Football Podcast: ESPNLA's Pedro Moura Previews USC-UCLA

And this year, it’s about more than just pride in Los Angeles: That's right, a Pac-12 South title will be on the line. To listen to the podcast on this website, click...

Defense rids nasty taste

USC senior safety T.J. McDonald collected his second interception of the season in USC's 38-17 win over Arizona State. The captain says it was important for the defense to get rid of the bad taste left in their mouths after the losses to Arizona and Oregon.

Adding depth: USC coach excited about Oraby

(Credit: Pierson Clair) The importance of having a post presence in basketball can’t be understated. Yeah, sure, teams have won in the past, and will continue to win, with sharp-shooting guards or slashing forwards, but having a big man who you can dump the ball down to, who can create second chance opportunities, and who can defend the rim is a game-changer – something that...

College Football Week 11

      "In America's future I see me...and 3 more years of my annoying nickname." One thing before we get started today.  I suggest that for the second annual RibFest that will be thrown in February (I'm assuming) the year of our Lord, 2013 we invite Brady but sit him at a different table and ignore him all night in the same fashion he ignored all of...
