USC RUMORS & GOSSIP

Pat Haden unsure of future as USC athletic director

Pat Haden has found himself in the spotlight since taking the athletic director position at USC. Who could forget Haden firing then head coach Lane Kiffin at the airport following a loss two years ago. And what about this past season when he left the press box to argue with the referees during the Trojans win against Stanford. But other than that, Haden has done a good job at USC...

USC will have younger squad in 2015 after scholarships increase

The restocking process for USC has begun. The process, however, will take a little longer than some would expect.  For the first time in four years, USC will be able to sign a full 25-member recruiting class on National Signing Day. (It should be noted blue shirt kicker Matt Boermeester counts towards the 25 players USC can sign in February. A blue shirt is non-recruited player...

There was next to nothing that went wrong for the USC Trojans football team during Saturday's game against Notre Dame. The same could not be said for the team's cheer squad though. While doing her job on the sideline she did not see defensive back Jonathan Lockett coming till it was too late to move.She did her best to brace for the hit. To her credit she popped right up after the...

USC Star DE Leonard Williams Says He Might Return For Senior Year “Just To Beat (UCLA)”

Leonard Williams has been at USC for three years and he’s lost to UCLA three times. The Trojans’ star defensive tackle lineman might not get another chance to beat the Bruins. This, obviously, bothers him deeply.  A projected top-10 pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, Williams is expected by many to forgo his final year of eligibility and head to the pros.  The possibility of beating...

Flashback Friday: UCLA knocks USC out of title contention

The USC Trojans won the 2004 national championship (yeah, I know they got stripped of the title but they still won the game) and played in the 2006 Rose Bowl for the 2005 season’s BCS national championship. That clash with Texas was one of the best games I’ve ever seen. In 2006, the Trojans appeared headed to yet another national championship game: They were 10-1 and had just...

WATCH: USC Trojans Adoree' Jackson Returns Kick Off For Easiest 100-Yard TD Return Ever

Kick off returns are not supposed to be easy. Coverage teams have a slight advantage since they can see the whole play develop as they run down the field and the return teams are somewhat reactive to them. That's pretty much why most kick returns don't go beyond the 20-30 yard line, but when the cover team kind of forgets to hit anyone and just overruns the play you end up...

USC finally shows off long anticipated shiny helmets

Compared to the image that had been floating around for months, the final product looks terrific. USC will wear...

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...

USC LB Hayes Pullard Ejected From USC/Stanford Game for Targeting

When you are a top 15 team you are expected to play a good, clean, hard fought game. Saturday when the No. 14 and No. 13 teams in the nation met (USC and Stanford) good, clean, and hard fought was not what the fans got. Instead it was a game filled with errors, mistakes, and penalties. It was the kind of game where you can't afford to lose a key player--like a starting linebacker...

USC Sets Pac-12 Record in Romp Over Fresno State

The USC Trojans needed to do something big Saturday afternoon.
