Quick Thought

Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze resigned after a call was made on his school cell phone to an escort service, according to reports. Perhaps that means his next job can be as dean of the USC medical school.

Speaking Of O.J.

With O.J. Simpson granted parole, it reminds me this jersey was worn at a game this season. Note the sleeves, the two different colors of red and name on back of jersey. Otherwise, it works.

O.J. Simpson Granted Parole


As expected, O.J. Simpson was granted parole. That is the news of the day. However, the bigger impression was Simpson’s comments during the hearing, where he would not stop talking and made some odd comments.

“I basically have spent a conflict-free life,” Simpson said at one point.

And then there was this: “No one has ever accused me of pulling a weapon on them.”

USC Morning Buzz: Doak Walker Watch List Features Ronald Jones

USC tailback Ronald Jones made the watch list for the Doak Walker Award, which goes to the nation’s top running back. Who is the frontunner? How about Penn State’s Saquon Barkley? I can still see defenders flailing trying to tackle him in the Rose Bowl.
Full list of candidates after the jump:                        Continue reading “USC Morning Buzz: Doak Walker Watch List Features Ronald Jones” »

Oregon WR Darren Carrington Can Transfer To Pac-12 School

Oregon WR Darren Carrington, who was dismissed from the team last week after driving a car into a pole at a McDonald’s drive-through, has visited Utah. Carrington graduated in the spring so he can transfer to any school without sitting out.

With his baggage, the All-Pac-12 receiver probably does not seem an attractive candidate for USC. But he’s good enough to play for the Trojans, who have plenty of young receivers that have not proved themselves yet. And one way or another, he might end up at a Pac-12 school.

Another Cliff Robinson Appreciation

I’ve mentioned USC forward Cliff Robinson a few times this summer. And it’s remarkable he is not in the school’s Hall of Fame. But here’s legendary USC announcer Tom Kelly on Robinson in 1978: “Cliff Robinson, the most talented player I’ve seen recruited at the school in 17 years . . . Robinson, who led the conference in scoring, set a school season rebounding mark, and all before his 18th birthday, can be as great as he wants to be.”

Robinson averaged 18.4 points in 1977-78. He had 35 points and a school-record 28 rebounds vs. Portland State. And he did not turn 18 until after the season. The next season he averaged 18.8 points. If you dismiss 35 points against Portland State because of the opponent, Robinson had 35 against UCLA . . . twice. And he scored 34 against Kansas.

Sam Darnold Makes Davey O’Brien Watch List

Two more watch lists today: Sam Darnold makes the watch list for the Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award. And Clay Helton makes the watch list for the Dodd Trophy. Yes, even coaches have a watch list.

Also a clarification on the Biletnikoff Award. It goes to the nation’s top receiver, not just a wide receiver. So anyone that catches a pass can win the award. O’Brien and Dodd watch lists after the jump:
