History Lesson

USC is staying about nine miles from Yankee Stadium. In 1951, the Trojans played in the original Yankee Stadium against Army and won 28-6 as Frank Gifford rushed for 138 yards and passed for 50.

    Where exactly are they staying while they are out there? Yankees Stadium is far from Syracuse—-like 4 hours. Are they staying in NYC? Or north of NYC? Might be a bonehead move to stay so far. The players could get distracted by the NYC magnet.

    Wolf gave Gifford’s performance a D+

    They’re playing at MetLife Stadium in NJ, which is less than 4 hours from where they are staying in the worst traffic.

    we’re playing at the new meadowlands – not syracuse. the meadowlands, in nj(where the giants and jets play), is right across the river from nyc. i think we should enjoy the one non-snarky, kinda cool piece of USC football history wolf has provided.

    True. Wolf was chool on this one, while he’s usually a d-i-c-k about so many things.

    Scott is staying at the Ritz Carlton on Central Park….oh, wait, that’s where all the other writers are staying. Scotty is at the Motel 6 just off the Turnpike in New Jersey…..only 1 mile from the stadium.

    I believe Sark is bringing in live turds before the UClA game. Multi-cultural turds ala ThaiMex would represent the Cadre membership with a distinct aroma
