What Happened To The Academic Concerns Over Morning Practices?

SCHOLARLYUSC coach Steve Sarkisian announced Thursday he would hold practices next fall in the morning. This is a little surprising because Lane Kiffin said he switched back to the afternoons because academic performances noticeably suffered during the two years he practiced in the morning.

And USC was ninth in the Pac-12 in the latest academic-progress report (APR) scores. Remember all of this the next time you hear about how important academics are to everyone. But new football coaches also tend to get whatever they want too.

    “But new football coaches also tend to get whatever they want too.”

    Were Gargamel’s journalism classes were also held in the AM, which could explain his torturing of the English language?

    What a surprise…Wolf blogging about Kiffin the moment when Sark ties his shoelaces different.

    Why are you asking your readers? You have access to Sark, so ask him, and report back to us what he says.

    Did Sark hold Washington practices in the AM? Probably pros and cons to AM or PM. Now Wolf has to get up early again to cover practice!

    Digging for dirt much, Wolf-schmuck? Since when is 8 am too early? I have already driven 25 minutes, arrived at the Office, and have had two coffees and a smoothie by 7 am – and I perform just fine!

  • Ray Reyes

    All “academic concerns” got thrown out the window when Wolf received a USC degree.

  • Ron Fleishman

    do you ever stop the negative?

  • ProbationU

    Maybe he heard that Wolfie likes to sleep in.

    I think SC should hope that US News never reads this site and lowers their rankings of the Journalism school.

    OT – It is sweet watching brooklyn playing the LAA @ Chavez Ravine – Kasten disowning any credible reply to the pure ‘but’ foolish ‘Walter O’Malley’ (the ganef) play brought forth by TWC – all other subscribers, be they sports fans or those who could care less, shall all pay for the brooklyn feed….

    This foolish and greedy stunt by both TWC as well as brooklyn will be the death of TWC to Direct TV and et. al. as the real problem is they have no ‘co-sport’ to use for ‘off season’….between November and March are any of you really interested in how many times ‘vin-dawg’ chevrolet can say ‘G’day mate’? Worse is knowing Steve Garvey has probably rammed in his ‘Tony Robbins’ “get your act together with my new diet plan powder” weight loss con job, to fill in those four months of ‘all brooklyn 24/7’ with the patented vin-dawg chevrolet doing his Popeye The Sailor Man imitation i.e. “Ha cha cha cha cha cha cha cha……
