There was a rumor a few weeks ago that USC was discussing a game against Alabama at a neutral site – Dallas. To your knowledge, did any such discussions take place. If true, are the discussions ongoing?
A: I heard USC would love to play Alabama but there’s not been wholehearted interest from the Crimson Tide. Although they will not rule it out, Alabama is not a serious contender for a future game.

Tyler Gaffney is going to Stanford. He can play immediately at either place and only be a special teams player for the next couple of years at SC. Will there be another fullback/powerback recruited this year?
A: With Gaffney going to Stanford, I don’t anticipate USC recruiting/signing another back. It’s too late to start looking now. But I’m not sure why USC didn’t make Gaffney a tailback. He looked pretty good to me.

I’m sure I just missed this. But I thought we had a home and home series with Virginia. Now we have SLO?? What happened?
I’m assuming Virginia backed out to protect the health of it’s players. I also assume SLO was the only school available with a heartbeat (as opposed to having a Nick Holt connection as Idaho did).
A: Virginia is scheduled to return its home game against USC in 2010.
