Cornerback Chris Hawkins, who committed to USC, is attending tonight’s Washington-Stanford game as a guest of the Huskies. Hawkins said he is committed but is also going to take trips to Arizona State and Notre Dame.
What does Lane Kiffin think USC’s identity is? The Trojans’ three victories are against teams with an 0-8 record against FBS opponents. Link here.
The Pac-12’s suffered from SEC-envy for years now and now the coaches are finally doing their best impressions. The latest escapade is UCLA coach Jim Mora’s tirade about TV camera crews setting up at the start of practice.
What was he worried about? Rivals coaches figuring out the warmup routine?
This follows the well-documented episodes with Lane Kiffin. I already noted how Kiffin’s tactics simply mirror Oregon coach Chip Kelly and Washington coach Steve Sarkisian slavishly follows whatever Kiffin does.
Kiffin’s already mentioned how Pete Carroll’s open ways were not smart and would not work today.
Which brings me to Oregon State coach Mike Riley, the nicest guy in the conference. He doesn’t worry about supressing injuries or TV crews showing up for warmups. And he is 2-0 at a school that really has no business beating Wisconsin or UCLA.
