USC 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.
