USC Men’s Golf Update

Tracy Wilcox/Golfweek

After three rounds at the NCAA men’s golf championships, USC is tied for second, one stroke behind Vanderbilt. There are 15 teams left and only 8 will survive after the fourth round. Then the final eight teams enter match play.

Do the golfers out there like this format? If you are No. 1 after four rounds, should you be champion? Or should match play be the format? It seems the NCAA wants to make it more like the Ryder Cup to heighten fan interest.

USC Is Everywhere

Did I know there is a college championship for the video game League of Legends? No. Did I know it was this weekend in West Los Angeles? No. Did I care? Well, I’m sure it has a huge following and just like a football game, it has the USC band.

The next conference is the Big Ten with 307. To recap, Stanford and UCLA have 113 titles while USC has 104.

Baseball Wraps Up Season


USC lost to Washington in the season finale, 7-4. The Trojans finished 21-34 and 8-22, last in the Pac-12. Since I don’t get the Pac-12 Network, I recommend watching a nearly six-minute in-game interview with USC pitcher CJ Stubbs. That’s not something you see on ESPN.
“We’re hungry,” Stubbs said. “Trust me. We’re going to be ready next year.”

Two things to keep in mind: USC was picked to finish 10th in the Pac-12 and finished 11th. Colorado does not field a team. So was this year understandable? On the other hand, USC is 49-62 the past two seasons.

Take A Look At The Jets

The New York Jets coaching staff is worth a mention. They have offensive coordinator John Morton, who was a long-time USC assistant coach (2007-11). Then there is QB coach Jeremy “Mr. Coffee” Bates (above right). Then there is assistant defensive backs coach Daylon McCutcheon. And to top it off, there is WR coach Karl Dorrell.

LAFC Won’t Just Be At USC

The Los Angeles Football Club plans to build a $30 million training facility at Cal State Los Angeles. Why wouldn’t LAFC build its facility adjacent to its new stadium in Exposition Park or somewhere by USC? The same reason why USC does not have a softball team.

There is no land for such projects. And in the rare situation when some land is available, USC will use it for the Village project that is scheduled to open in July.
