Newspaper Notice Of Day

You might associate Chick Hearn as the Lakers legend. But he also did USC football and basketball games from 1956-61 like this notice shows from 1958. The TV announcer is actually spelled Bill Welsh, who also did USC games for KTTV (Channel 11).

USC Morning Buzz: It’s Time For The Friday Notes Column

usc-ucla-crowd-ladn-com_

It’s the Crosstown Rivalry week editiion of the Friday notes column, where I talk about a “prank” that police said was potentially dangerous to hundreds of people; talk about the recruits coming to the game; talk to someone who knew the original George Tirebiter and make my game prediction.

USC Quick Thought

How much sense did it make to take defensive tackle Kenny Bigelow to Notre Dame after he retired as a player, when he clearly intended to keep playing elsewhere. It’s obvious he was unhappy freshman Brandon Pili moved ahead of him on the depth chart.

About The Pac-12 Schedule

Next year, no teams will play a Saturday road game followed by a Friday road game. That’s good.

I would also note that every Pac-12 team plays 7-or-8 days before the conference title game. That means you avoid this year’s scenario, where USC goes two weeks without a game and plays a team (Stanford, Washington, Washington State) that will play two games in six days.

About The USC Schedule

The first thought on USC’s schedule is the back-to-back road games with Stanford and Texas could have a huge impact on the season. The next two games that stand out are road games with Arizona (Khalil Tate) and Utah (have to be better next season).

Then comes the season-ending swing with UCLA and Notre Dame. Whatever predictions I might make depend on whether Sam Darnold comes back, of course.
