Here’s Jim Thompson‘s take on Rick Neuheisel’s recent comments that UCLA should leave the Pac-12 for the Big 12 to escape USC’s shadow.
Once again, Stanford’s ticket prices for the USC game decrease after the first week they go on sale. Stanford calls it “predictable dynamic pricing.” Information here

I wonder if people who actually subject themselves to listening to this show ever get tired of Colin Cowherd’s cheerleading for USC? The above skit is supposed to be him as a USC coach/shill negatively recruiting against the rest of the Pac-12. But he forgets to mention Utah.
Just like he forgot to admit he was completely wrong last year when he said USC would blow out Washington. “USC is freakin’ rolling,” Cowherd said the morning of Washington’s stunning victory over USC last October at the Coliseum. The next day crickets chirped on Cowherd’s show as he pretended to forget his prediction.

Fox Sports analyst Joel Klatt is always outspoken about USC. And he used the Trojans as an example for not expanding the current playoff format of four teams.
“The problem with expanding the playoff past four teams is you’re going to water down the regular season. If you take it past four or five, every power conference is going to say our champion’s in automatically.
“That means USC last year with four losses had a chance for 60 minutes against Stanford to have an automatic berth to the playoff. Their four losses don’t count? That’s garbage.”
Does Andy Enfield ever consider there are people who buy season tickets and might want to see some good games at the Galen Center? Troy was 9-22 last season. Cornell was 10-18 last season. New Orleans was 10-20.
Time to revive my annual line: This is not a non-conference schedule, it’s a non-schedule.
Earlier than usual, USC has published its basketball schedule. And naturally, Andy Enfield found some interesting choices. Montana on Nov. 11. Then Omaha on Nov. 13. Omaha? Not Nebraska. But Omaha. USC also plays Troy. And Cornell. And Missouri State.
