Numbers Talk

Wide receiver De’von Flournoy said he spoke to assistant coach John Morton about the possibility of getting jersey No. 1 back for the season. Lane Kiffin took No. 1 away from Flournoy and cornerback T.J. Bryant because he said they did not deserve it.
Kiffin believed a tradition was set when former wide receiver Mike Williams wore the number.
“He said if I show more intensity and just be a better receiver, than I have a chance,” Flournoy said.

Geography Lesson

You would think after coaching at USC for five years, former basketball assistant coach Gib Arnold would know that the City of Industry is not in East L.A.
But after signing a guard from Industry, Arnold told the Honolulu Advertiser, “East L.A. is known for boxing more than basketball. The competition there is still improving, so (college) coaches don’t really go there.”
