Big Night

Tonight is the big diversity presentation at USC. Diversity is a buzzword for the administration these days and they figured inviting Pete Carroll would draw a crowd.
(Maybe if he promises to talk about recruiting).

Magic Number, Cont.

Luckily, we have a spy at Orange Lutheran that informs us quarterback Aaron Corp already breezed through the admissions process at USC. Now Corp will just need to wait for the NCAA Clearinghouse, which is considered a formality.

A Natural Question

Last week, when I asked Pete Carroll who would get the Chargers job, he replied, “I hope Norv Turner.”
Now, a normal question today would be, “Will Turner try to hire Steve Sarkisian again?” like he did with the Raiders.
Turner wants to call the plays in San Diego and Sarkisian is currently meeting with new assistant coach John Morton, so the answer appears to be no.

Second Thoughts . . . Briefly

New wide receivers coach John Morton, who is also the passing-game coordinator, had second thoughts last week about leaving New Orleans but arrived in Los Angeles today and should sign a contract tomorrow.

USC is already rated No. 1 nationally in four different pre-2007 magazine or internet media polls.

Magic Number

When evaluating this year’s recruiting class, the football coaches will closely monitor the academic progress of about seven prospects who are considered “at risk” academically. Usually, most of them make it, but as history shows, at least one will probably not get cleared by the NCAA in August.

Who Goofed?

Fox Sports West failed to get to the USC basketball game until well into the first half, missing the first 12 minutes, instead showing a faceless tennis match featuring Andy Murray (the Kings coach?) and somone named Ivo Karlovic.
Just when you wanted to know who won the tennis, they left it and switched to USC basketball. If you don’t get multiple Fox sports channels, it had to be a frustrating evening. By the way, who won the tennis?

Play It Smart

Across the country, 75 players signed a letter of intent last week that participated in the Play It Smart mentoring program, which supports academic coaches that work with high school football teams in underserved areas.
Former USC wide receiver Dwayne Jarrett was a participant in the program and this year’s only incoming Trojan to experience it was wide receiver/sprinter Bryshon Nellum.
“Play It Smart helped me in a big way,” Nellum said. “Knowing all the requirements to get to college, taking the SATs, meeting the clearinghouse and the credits to get to the next level, without Play It Smart I would have not known what to do.”
