Summer School Update

Offensive tackle E.J. Price, who is currently not a member of the football program, is enrolled in summer school. USC is currently between summer sessions. Kicker Matt Boermeester is not enrolled in summer school. That makes it increasingly unlikely Boermeester returns to USC.

Guess Who Won The Manning Academy Passing Competition?

Sam Darnold was at the Manning Passing Academy over the weekend with a long list of college star quarterbacks. So who won the Quarterback Challenge competition? Texas QB Shane Buechele.

If my memory is correct, the passing competition consists of throwing footballs at moving golf carts. When I asked Matt Barkley about it five years ago, he said, “That’s not really my thing, throwing at golf carts and stuff like that. I’d rather throw to a real receiver.” He had some trouble doing the latter too that season.

Anyways, at least Buechele winning the competition puts him on USC fans’ radar when Texas comes to the Coliseum on Sept. 16.

Sam Darnold Says You Have To Be Mean In Los Angeles

USC quarterback Sam Darnold is at the Manning Passing Academy this weekend in Thibodaux, La. And he said the people are friendlier than in Los Angeles.

“You learn so much just from how nice the people are compared to people in L.A.,” Darnold said. “It gets super crowded and people are mean to each other. The hospitality here is amazing. Nothing against people from L.A., but you have to be mean if you’re in L.A. it’s just how it is down there. Big cities with a lot of people, something is going to happen.”

So much for making him an L.A. 2024 spokesperson.

USC Is Everywhere


The USC band performed at the opening of the Wilshire Grand Center in downtown L.A., the tallest building west of the Mississippi River. The Wilshire Grand Center is the brainchild of Yang-ho Cho, the 68-year-old Chairman and CEO of Korean Airlines, who earned his MBA from USC in 1979.
