USC DE Leonard Williams healthy, ready to dominate

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. -- Ed Orgeron is one of the most hard-nosed, tough, yet still loving coaches there are. It was the loving side of the man affectionately known as "Coach O" that USC defensive end Leonard Williams experienced the most -- at least according to his teammates.

2015 NFL Mock Draft: Matt

The 2014 Draft may have just ended, but it's never too early to take a look into next years' draft class! Since our pre-season power rankings aren't up yet, the draft order will be just a quick guess on how the season will pan out. The focus on this draft will be more about the best prospects, not necessarily the teams. Enjoy!1. New York Jets: Marcus Mariota, QB,...

Onebar’s 2015 NFL Mock Draft | Version 1.0

It is time to officially start the 2015 NFL DraftSeason with my 1st full 1 round mock draft of the season. As always the first stab at a mock draft this early in the process will be about as accurate as a Brandon Weeden throw, I just couldn’t wait any longer. While 2014 was looked at as one of the more loaded drafts in sometime, I must say that 2015 isn’t looking to shabby with...

USC's Leonard Williams says he'll be healthy for fall camp

If USC's spring game last Saturday was a Saturday during the fall, USC All-American defensive lineman Leonard Williams says he "definitely" would have been on the field. However, it was the spring game and just like the 14 practices USC held prior to that, Williams was relegated to being a spectator. It was all a part of USC head coach Steve Sarkisian's decision...

USC Football: No excuses against UCLA

Sanctions, injuries and depth are not suitable excuses. USC Football lost to UCLA by the largest margin since Richard Nixon was president. UCLA head coach Jim Mora has moved to 2-0 against USC. Interim head coach drops to 0-2 against USC’s rivals— and USC is 0-4 against rivals in the past two seasons. It was UCLA’s first victory in the Coliseum since 1997— nearly a month...

Five points: Why USC will beat UCLA on Saturday

1. Leonard Williams The stud defensive lineman has continued to give his team an emotional boost over the past couple of weeks. He's gutting it out on an injured shoulder that in all likelihood will need surgery after the season. Williams is going to be key in USC controlling the line of scrimmage --both in the run game and also in their efforts to keep UCLA Brett Hundley in...

USC defense knows what to expect vs. Stanford

LOS ANGELES -- A powerful running attack will take its toll on the opposition in the late stages of a football game. At least, that's the popular opinion.

USC is 7-3 on the season, but as far as interim head coach Ed Orgeron is concerned, Saturday's visit from Stanford will mark game No. 6 of the Trojans' "new season."

Shaw does it all for USC's secondary

LOS ANGELES If you're looking for USC's Josh Shaw, you may find him at cornerback. You may find him at safety. Regardless of where's he's lined up, his teammates know where he is. That was evident in USC's game against Utah State last Saturday. In the first half, the Aggies connected for a long gain down their sideline, which was eventually called back because...
