Bill Stern was a nationally known radio broadcaster in the 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s. I am skeptical if these stories about 1931 and 1938 USC-Notre Dame games are true, but Stern made them interesting. Listen to the first few minutes.
ESPN draft guru Mel Kiper has released his latest first-round mock draft. Here’s the top five: 1. Browns – Josh Allen 2. Giants – Josh Rosen 3. Colts – Bradley Chubb 4. Browns – Saquon Barkley 5. Broncos – Sam Darnold.
Meanwhile, Kiper has USC defensive end Rasheem Green going to the Patriots with the 32nd pick in the first round.
Former USC wide receiver Keary Colbert is expected to be the Trojans’ tight ends coach next season, according to sources. Colbert has been an offensive quality control assistant at USC.
The tight ends were coached by John Baxter the past two seasons, so Baxter will now focus on special teams. This means two staff members have been promoted from within because Bryan Ellis was reportedly hired as the new quarterbacks coach, replacing Tyson Helton.
Former USC wide receivers coach John Morton has reportedly been fired by the New York Jets as offensive coordinator. You know who might replace him? Jets QBs coach Jeremy Bates, the former USC offensive coordinator aka Mr. Coffee. It’s simply stunning the way some guys get recycled in coaching.
