The Pro Football Hall of Fame will allow Sydney Seau, the daughter of Junior Seau, to speak at next weekend’s induction ceremony, according to Fox Sports. This comes after a controversy ensued when it was reported Seau’s family would not be allowed to speak when he is inducted into the Hall of Fame.
The only year I’m aware USC wore a helmet that was not red or cardinal was in 1957, when the Trojans sported gold helmets that could also pass for bronze. That is Rex Johnston (27) sporting the gold helmet against Notre Dame. As you can see, Notre Dame’s helmets also looked different back then.
Based on Steve Sarkisian’s comments yesterday, he favors a white helmet/uniform.
Although USC looks like it will wear an alternate uniform in 2016, Steve Sarkisian said this today at Pac-12 media day.
“We fall back on our rich tradition. We’re not going to take the field in 13 different uniforms.”
That brought this tweet from an Oregon media relations member:

Steve Sarkisian said USC might wear an alternate uniform in 2016. Sarkisian said the players prefer an all-white model because that is what they wear in practices. But no decisions have been made. Asked what opinions he would consider before making a decision to wear an alternate uniform, Sarkisian said, “the players matter the most to me.”
Steve Sarkisian said this afternoon that tight end Bryce Dixon, who is no longer enrolled at USC, is in the midst of an appeal process with the student-conduct office.
“I’d love to have him back,” Sarkisian said.
Meanwhile, it is still too soon to know if tight end Jalen Cope-Fitzpatrick will be eligible this season.
