USC cornerback Josh Shaw reportedly skipped his interview session today at the NFL combine. Shaw never consented to an interview during USC’s bowl practices but did do interviews at the Senior Bowl.

A reader alerted me to a blistering rant of a USC fan/booster named Bob Case, who apparently holds the title of IBA boxing vice president, on this podcast, and includes this comment: “I talk to a lot of players around there and people that worked there for years and they said they’ve never heard players complaining around there (like this) about assistant coaches.” The interview begins around the 35-minute mark.
USC WR Nelson Agholor ran the 40-yard dash in 4.44 seconds this morning. It was the seventh-fastest time among wide receivers. But the NFL Network also said he dislocate a finger. Agholor also did 12 reps in the benchpress. Full results after the jump:
The Trojans defeated Oakland (the university in Michigan, not the A’s), 8-6, tonight at Dedeaux Field to improve to 6-0. Granted, Oakland is 0-4. And three other wins were over 0-3 Towson. Even Cal State Fullerton, who lost to USC earlier this week, is 1-4.
