Did The Chargers Copy USC?

The Chargers are using #ChargeOn as a slogan on their twitter account. Is that a nod to USC? Or did they use it in San Diego? Since I’ve never really followed the team, I’m not sure. But it should draw some attention on twitter.

Chargers Move To StubHub Center

CHARGERS.LOGOThe Chargers announced this morning they will play at the 30,000-seat StubHub Center in Carson for the next two years. That’s good news for USC players, who won’t have to play on artificial surface at the Coliseum for two years. And there’s the new logo above. Are you feeling an adrenalin rush?

And here is what a game at StubHub will look like, minus the fights.

USC Morning Buzz: Anything But A Field Of Dreams

ROSE.FIELD

Now here is a quote that is handy following all the slipping and sliding at the Rose Bowl during last week’s USC-Penn State game. Unfortunately, it’s a 2014 quote from Sports Field Management magazine. You can read this article and then further wonder why the field was inadequate. By the way, did you notice how nice the field in Tampa was for the Alabama-Clemson game? No slipping. Just playing.

Report: Chargers To Los Angeles

The Chargers plan to move to Los Angeles, according to a report by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

How many bad football teams can L.A. take? The Rams, the Chargers, UCLA last season. USC the first four games. Cross your fingers they stay away from the Coliseum. I’m wondering who is going to go to Charger games since the Coliseum looked empty for the Rams’ last home game and the Rams supposedly had a large fan base.

Hope For Coliseum?

The Chargers have until Monday to decide if they move to L.A. One scenario being mulled is playing at Home Depot Center. An NFL team in a 30,000-seat stadium? Who cares if it means the Coliseum is off the hook for the Chargers?

USC Finishing No. 3 Reminds Everyone Why QB Decision Relevant

darnold-rose-3USC was No. 3 in the final AP Top 25 poll. This shows once again why the decision to wait until Game 4 to start Sam Darnold was disastrous. You can’t say “move on” if it cost USC a Final Four berth.

If Darnold starts the Utah State or Stanford games, it makes it more likely they beat Utah. I think you can make the case USC could beat Stanford if Darnold started. And who do most of you think was the hottest team at the end of the season? USC.

So the Trojans not making the Final Four was a big deal. And USC’s chances could have easily increased with a simple change at QB.

Former USC Asst. Peter Sirmon To Louisville In Weird Coach Trade

Peter Sirmon was the defensive coordinator at Mississippi State. But the Bulldogs announced they hired Louisville defensive coordinator Todd Grantham, which would mean Sirmon is out? But then Louisville announced it hired Sirmon as its defensive coordinator.

It almost sounds like something out of the Lane Kiffin/Steve Sarkisian “failing upward” handbook.

Cal Coaching Odds

Which familiar name pops up in the odds below for the Cal job from Bookmaker.eu? I haven’t heard anything at USC of Cal speaking to Trojans offensive coordinator Tee Martin. But I will say this: His close relationship with the recruiting services will make those sites eager to push him as a candidate in Pac-12 circles, whether or not  he interviews.

Jake Spavital +150

Chip Kelly +250

Justin Wilcox +300

Tee Martin +750

Jonathan Smith +1250

Les Miles +2000

Ron Rivera +2500

FIELD -110
