South Carolina Newspaper Uses Trojans Logo for Gamecocks Football Preview…Uh Oh

The USC Trojans don’t have the biggest fans in South Carolina supporters. While Los Angeles and Columbia remain a whopping 2,400 miles away and the two teams have met only twice all-time (1980 & 1983), there is still severe disdain for their distant non-rivals. Everyone refers to the University of Southern California as USC, for obvious reasons, but no one outside of Columbia...

Pac-12 Basketball Preview: #11 USC Trojans

The Sports Bank’s college basketball season previews undergo a facelift this season. Rather than counting down the top 111 teams in 111 days, we will go conference-by-conference, breaking down each team beginning with the Pac-12. As expected, Andy Enfield’s first season as USC Trojans head coach was rough. While USC loses their top four scorers from a year ago, Enfield brings...

One pivotal USC-Stanford call the officials got absolutely correct

Some things you have to see to believe -- and others you simply know to believe once you see them.  That was the case during the second half of the USC-Stanford game on Saturday won by the Trojans 13-10.  The first, which I’m not sure I’ve ever seen before, took place near the end of the third quarter when USC drew three straight penalties — a delay of game, an unsportsmanlike...
