SW, of the current football roster or incoming class, who do you think may surprise us all with a breakout season in 2010?
A: I think Robert Woods could be a very influential player next season at wide receiver. It could also be an interesting season for Marc Tyler, if he can stay healthy. I also think Malik Jackson might finally emerge after two relatively quiet seasons. But I think Woods is the one most people will notice because of the nature of his position. I can see him doing a lot of things with the ball, if Lane Kiffin chooses to use him.

Why haven’t you posted anything about LaMichael James’s arrest or any of the Oregon legal problems? You were pretty proud of LaMichael James being a two sport athlete.
A: I usually try to avoid posting things that every other web site in the country already mentioned. I did run a response from Mike Bellotti on Oregon’s recent problems. And I mentioned Jamere Holland getting kicked off the team.
I was proud of James being a two-sport athlete. More athletes should try it, even at USC. I believe it helps football players increase their speed to run track. That has nothing to do with his arrest.
