What’s your take on a Rose Bow matchup between say USC vs. Boise State?
Well, under a new provision, that can be invoked once between 2011-14, the Rose Bowl would be required to invite a non-BCS conference team like Boise State, if that team is in the top 12 of the final BCS standings and either the Pac-10 champ or Big Ten winner is in the national title game.
Here’s the story I wrote in today’s paper about the new BCS provision.
Ohh Thurmond: The perfect picture is always when someone makes a play against ‘SC
Hi all, I’m here at Pac-10 Media Day, and wanted to let know that former West Covina High School star Walter Thurmond, now an all-conference defensive back at Oregon, is also expected to be in attendance. He will join new Ducks coach Chip Kelly sometime afternoon.
I will follow with comments from Thurmond a little later.
By the way, they just handed out the Pac-10 preseason media poll and, surprise, USC is No. 1 with rival UCLA No. 7. California is second and Oregon No. 3.
Walter Thurmond: “I’m just happy to be the position I’m at. God gave me the ability. I really can’t stress enough how hard it takes to be the position I’m in. It takes hard work, and you just have to have love for the game.”
The word on the street is that defending Division III champion South Hills will take on former back-to-back Division V champion Bishop Amat in a baseball doubleheader at Mt. SAC this spring. Based on what both teams have coming back, it’s also safe to assume they will likely be the two best teams to start the season, so this is great news for area baseball fans. Now, if they could only hookup in football ….
To all the less fortunate who missed the 80s, know that we didn’t have cell phones, we suffered through land lines and busy signals. We didn’t have text messages, we slipped notes. We didn’t sit in front of our computers with a Wii, we hiked to the nearest corner and dropped quarters on Asteroids, Donkey Kong, Pacman, etc. And the movies, don’t get me started. I’m not talking about the Academy Award winners, I’m talking about the top 15 movies from the 80s that you memorized line-for-line and can watch over and over again……
The 80’s signature cuff (we all did it) … And yes, the hair presented by Aqua Net…
