Chicago Bears Wisely Keep Tabs On Dion Bailey

Phil Emery prefers to always watch available free agents carefully.  One name surfaced recently that Chicago Bears fans should remember. Bailey Joins Three Other Safeties In Workout Dion Bailey certainly comes from a storied position.  Many great NFL players were defensive backs at USC including all-timers like Ronnie Lott and Troy Polamalu.  Bailey did his best to live up to...

USC Football: A drama-filled offseason

USC’s football program has been through a lot the past year—and apparently it hasn’t stopped. The offseasons usually aren’t filled with so much going on. It hasn’t even been a month since USC’s last game. Some juniors decided to declare for the NFL. That part is pretty standard. First it was Dion Bailey; then it was Marcus Martin and George Uko. Marqise Lee decided later...

USC DB trash talks Michigan State, ends up looking foolish

The Big Ten’s perception, already in question after a lackluster year, is taking a huge hit during the 2013-2014 bowl season. The conference has thus far notched just one victory (Nebraska over Georgia) in five games, as Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin and Iowa have all lost their respective matchups. Players around the country are starting to notice too – check out what USC...

USC Defensive Back Dion Bailey and Others Enter NFL Draft

Dion Bailey has been one of the leaders on the USC defense for the past 3 years. Bailey has played at both linebacker and safety during his time as a Trojan leading USC with 5 interceptions in 2013. The 2nd Team All-Pac 12 defensive back has already earned his degree and really has nothing left to prove at USC. This shouldn’t come as a huge surprise to anyone, at this point he...

USC Football: The road to recovery starts in Corvallis

The stage was set for a horror movie. It was a short week with a game right around Halloween time— in Corvallis, no less. Even stacked USC teams in 2006 and 2008 could not win up there. This was a team riddled with injuries and playing walk-ons. Add the infamous “Glasses Ref” to that (Note: That is not Pac-12 Official, Jay Stricherz’s actual twitter account). Some fans were...

Bailey provides emotional boost in USC's win over Utah

LOS ANGELES -- If the USC locker room is the Batcave and Dion Bailey is Batman, halftime provided a crisis situation in the eyes of the Trojans junior safety. Bailey walked into the locker room at halftime in civilian clothes and emerged down the tunnel in full uniform with his customary No. 18 on his back at the end of halftime in the Trojans' 19-3 win over Utah (4-4, 1-4 Pac...

LOS ANGELES Like most of his teammates, Dion Bailey left the Coliseum disgruntled and disappointed last Saturday. The normally open and candid Bailey was short and lost for words following the 10-7 loss to Washington State.

USC's Bailey earns 'Boogeyman' nickname

Bailey looking for more in 2nd season at LB

LOS ANGELES -- When Dion Bailey was moved from safety to linebacker in the spring of 2011, he didn't take too well to it. In fact, he didn't like it at all. Bailey was a national recruit coming out of Lakewood High School in 2010 where he picked off 12 passes over his final two seasons with the Lancers. "Coming out of high school everybody thinks they're the...
