A group of veteran USC players went out to dinner a few nights ago and were asked who would start at tailback this season. Their answer: Hershel Dennis.
That’s a testament to Dennis’ strong spring practice and also illustrates that players are usually loyal to those in their own peer group.
Forty runs and 59 hits later, Stanford completed its sweep over USC. Sunday’s battle for last place saw the Cardinal win 10-5. The Trojans finished 27-29 but it could have been worse. They could have been men’s volleyball.
Freshman wide receiver Jamere Holland, beset by injuries the past 12 months, ran the opening leg on the 4×100-meter relay today in the West Regionals as the Trojans ran a season-best 39.50 to win the event.
We now hear that St. Bonaventure tailback Darrell Scott prefers LSU as his No. 1 choice and Florida No. 2. Our Ventura County sources tell us Scott considers USC and UCLA as his backup choices if he chooses to stay close to home.
