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...

The Greenville News apparently does not care what the Supreme Court says.  Back in 2010, justices let stand a trademark ruling holding that the interlocking letters “SC” are the registered mark of the University of Southern California’s sports teams. The court turned down an appeal from the University of South Carolina in Columbia, S.C., which since 1997 has attempted...

Barry Sanders Jr. Gets Bodied By USC Linebacker (Video)

Barry Sanders Jr. got demolished on this hit. Barry Sanders Sr. is one of the greatest players in NFL history, so with that comes a burden for his son, Barry Jr., to play in his father’s shadow. USC linebacker Hayes Pullard showed Barry Jr. absolutely no sympathy as his Trojans went up against Stanford. This play is very reminiscent of Jadeveon Clowney’s hit against Michigan...

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...
