USC Morning Buzz: Remembering The Original DeflateGate Incident

POST.PATSIt seems like much of the sports world is transfixed by whether the New England Patriots deflated footballs in the AFC championship game. So it’s worth taking a moment to remember USC’s version of DeflateGate in 2012.

USC was fined $25,000 by the Pac-12 after officials were forced to re-inflate five footballs before the game and at halftime against Oregon. The official story was that a student manager was responsible on his own.

However, an equipment manager was reprimanded and members of the coaching staff said they believed Lane Kiffin was involved. There was also the question of whether Matt Barkley knew. That he would not know seemed improbable. And Barkley passed for 484 yards and five touchdowns in the game.

The Longhorn Network, which is devoted to the University of Texas, starts broadcasting on DirecTV on Wednesday. I’m aware that this is part of a larger agreement between Disney and DirecTV.

But the bottom line is this: The Pac-12 Network is not on DirecTV. The Longhorn Network is on DirecTV.

Pete Carroll Is A Great Coach And Also A Lucky One

BART

If the legendary Vince Lombardi is remembered for one play, it is Bart Starr’s quarterback sneak for a touchdown to win the game in the 1967 Ice Bowl against the Dallas Cowboys in the NFL Championship game. As of today, what would Pete Carroll be remembered for? That some Packer dropped an on-side kick?
