USC-UCLA Picture Of The Day

Can you ever get enough of the 1967 USC-UCLA game, the gold standard meeting of the Crosstown Rivalry? No. 50 for USC is the great linebacker Adrian Young, a consensus All-American in 1967 and third-round pick of the Philadelphia Eagles. That is UCLA halfback Greg Jones scoring the touchdown. And the player next to him looks like USC defensive back Pat Cashman, who returned an interception 55 yards for a touchdown in the game.

More Wide Receivers Please

Four-star wide receiver Manuel Allen of Corona Centennial, who committed to USC last month, has decommitted. Maybe Allen realized USC has 10 wide receivers on its roster for next season. And will probably bring in 2-3 more next year.

Change Is Not Always For Better

Last year, USC changed the font on its lettering and numerals for all uniforms, as seen above. It also looks like the cardinal has become brighter. I find it to be a worse look and prefer the lettering/numerals from last year (below). If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

Galen Center Sold Out Tonight


What, a sellout at the Galen Center? What’s going on? A Jay Chou concert? Certainly not a USC basketball game. Tonight’s Southern Section Open Division games between (Sierra Canyon-Bishop Montgomery, Mater Dei-Chino Hills) are officially sold out.

At least USC did sell out the UCLA game. So it’s USC 1, Open Division 1.

Mycah Pittman To Calabasas

As expected, former Oaks Christian wide receiver Mycah Pittman transferred to Calabasas. Pittman, who has been offered a scholarship by USC, is the younger brother of USC wide receiver Michael Pittman. Former USC players Chris Claiborne and Marshall Jones coach at Calabasas.

Picture Of The Day

Here is a picture from the 1967 USC-UCLA game. It features quite a few notable players: UCLA QB Gary Beban (16) won the Heisman Trophy; USC defensive ends Jimmy Gunn (56) and Tim Rossovich (88) were All-Americans. Gunn was also part of the Wild Bunch defensive line. Defensive tackle Bubba Scott (71) was another member of the Wild Bunch. Defensive tackle Gary Magner (75) was a fourth-round pick by the New York Jets.

USC Coaching Roulette

USC tailbacks Ronald Jones, Aca’Cedric Ware and Dominic Davis are about to have their third running backs coach in three years. This isn’t as big an issue as changing offensive line coaches every year (which USC did for guys like Zach Banner). But it is also true that Jones had an inconsistent season that was never fully explained. Were coaching changes part of the reason for his struggles?
