If you want to bet the over/under on how many games USC will win this season, the current number on bodog.com is 10.5, which means the Trojans must go 11-1 to win the over (bowl games do not count).
Former USC wide receiver Mike Williams was cut today by the Tennessee Titans.
“I just wasn’t seeing the production, and when you get in a situation where you don’t see the production, and you’ve got a young group of receivers that are emerging, I just felt like it was in our best interests to let him go at this point,” coach Jeff Fisher said. “Maybe Mike can hook on some place else.”
USC’s media guide fails to list one small fact: When is Homecoming?
Golfer Hunter Mahan drew more buzz than ever with his comments that players are “slaves” during the week of the Ryder Cup. Mahan, of course, played at USC his freshman year before he transferred to Oklahoma State.
Perhaps he felt like a slave at USC too.
Long Beach Poly defensive tackle Jurrell Casey was certified by the NCAA Clearinghouse.
I recently brushed aside an ESPN article on USC’s biggest celebrity fans because it seemed about three years late. And sure enough, here’s the article’s No. 1 fan, Snoop Dogg, in an LSU jersey with Tigers coach Les Miles.
USC basketball recruit Demar DeRozan took the ACT only one time, so there will not be any follow-up investigation regarding his test score. We mentioned this because his test score was quite high. That means getting certified by the NCAA Clearinghouse should be a formality.
Here is the WAC’s nonconference games. Of course, Nebraska plays two WAC teams on its nonconference schedule (San Jose State, New Mexico State).
The line is currently 20 points for the USC-Virginia game. That’s little movement from when we first saw a point spread on the game.
I mentioned recently all the money Oregon’s spending, whether it’s for a new basketball arena, baseball stadium or indoor track stadium. But the Ducks also just installed a new video board that is 88 feet wide by 33 feet high, the largest in the Pac-10. It cost more than $2 million. Did we mention USC got a new video board too?
