USC alum, long suffering Scotland supporter. Everton for a team that wins but not too much, and Partick Thistle because there's more to Glasgow football than the ugly sectarian sisters.

DBD 12/29/11 - Things to Which One Might Look Forward

Chins up, Sturdy Golden Bears. The main page threads about the Holiday Bowl are already showing that gallows humor for which you are all noted, along with your capacity to shrug off disappointment...

Barkley to have afternoon news conference about next season


Per the USC AD twitter feed, there will be a press conference this afternoon for Matt Barkley to announce his decision about returning for one more season or going pro. Cowherd briefly claimed it was a lock that Barkley is gone, but then retracted. Speculation is rife as you can imagine. Pretty much everyone who has an opinion is saying they have no inside information, so I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

TJ McDonald is coming back next season!


Take it from the man himself (see the link) - TJ McDonald is coming back next year. Devon Kennard is pleased - so am I!

Gerald Bowman Commits to USC


From SBN's recruiting coverage (see link). Gerald Bowman is considered to be one of the top JUCO recruits out there and is a well regarded safety. We can always use another great player on defense - welcome to the Trojan family, Gerald!

NCAA gets out the comfy pillow: the Ohio State penalties

From the PAC 12 "Great Moments in Vivisection" Series: the Conference Championship Game


Well, here we are. The waiting is over, the long season has been navigated, and it's time for the best of the North Division and UCLA to take the field for the inaugural PAC 12 Conference...

Rick Neuheisel and the power of positive thinking

You see the darndest things on Twitter these days: Some people were very quick to reply... But on further consideration, I think the following from Avinash pretty much hits it on the head: ...

Robert Woods is a 2011 Biletnikoff finalist


Robert Woods is one of three finalists for the Biletnikoff Award along with Justin Blackmon of Oklahoma State and Ryan Broyles of Oklahoma. The award will be given on December 8th. It's a great recognition of a great season so far - now all Woods needs to do is get with Marqise Lee and wreak some havoc against UCLA!

Why LaMichael James doesn't make the O


Some of you may think I'm posting this only for the LULZ but that's not true - I find this genuinely interesting, and not just because it explains why LaMichael James isn't doing a particular...

SC sends the Huskies back to the kennel: post-game and evening game thread

It might not have been pretty but unlike the last two years, SC came away with a decisive victory over a Washington team that spent most of the game getting nowhere against a much-improved defense....

Buffalo buffalo buffalo - USC plays a Friday Night Lights game in Boulder

Did you know that Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo is a legitimate sentence? True fact. Hopefully that's about as much of a buffalo run-on as we'll see this evening...

No. 25 USC goes up 19-3 over Minnesota but has to hold on late. The Gophers rally behind their backup quarterback and fall just short, 19-17. Storyline: USC could disappoint in 2011 The Verdict: For a while, this was incredibly accurate. USC needed turnovers to hold off Utah at home the next week, got whipped by Arizona State, and only held off Arizona by a touchdown at home. But in the last three weeks, they have taken things up a notch, whipping California on the road, whipping Notre Dame on the road, then exchanging haymakers with Stanford for four quarters and three overtimes before falling. USC should end up at 9-3 or so thanks to their improved play.

I know this an SBN site, but I think it's indicative of people's slight change in opinion about this USC team, at the national level.

Trojans versus Trees: Stanford Game Thread

OSU paid players' lawyer $142K


Good thing there's nothing to worry about, given the Auburn precedent. I mean I know the NCAA looks at these things indvidually, of course, but still.

A sobering summary of the numbers

From today's Guardian SportBlog:   Everton have dismissed talk of a financial crisis. In 2011, however, they have generated approximately £30m and Barclays Bank has seen far more of that than...


Dan Wetzel: Ohio State case worse than USC

Breaking: NCAA Denies USC's Appeal, All Penalties Remain

Boise State Charged With "Lack Of Institutional Control" Ohio State Totally Had


SBN Penn State blog Black Shoe Diaries takes a look at Boise State's NCAA compliance issues versus those of Ohio State and is, to put it mildly, underwhelmed.

Boise State Steps Up To The Big Leagues


Well, here's a how-do-you-do. As noted on Stewart Mandel's twitter stream, Boise State is in the midst of a NCAA imbroglio of their own. The crux of it, as reported in the Idaho Statesman, is that...

Colorado game moved to Friday November 4th


The Colorado game will now be on Friday night, 6 pm PST. Yet another step in the removal of pretense that this game is over something other than revenue.

Open Thread: NFL Draft - Second Round


A little late on this (stupid commute!) - today is the second round of the NFL Draft. Yesterday saw Tyron Smith go to the Cowboys, thus far nothing to report for SC players. Akeem Ayers of the...

Ari Stewart to transfer from Wake Forest to USC


From SBN's Wake Forest site Blogger So Dear comes news that Ari Stewart is transferring to USC. When news of his departure arose the main point of contention for Blogger So Dear regulars wasn't over "was he phoning it in this season" (they all thought he was) but just how much was this indicative of the malaise under current Wake Forest coach Jeff Bzdelik (very much, according to all but one commentor. Incidentally, the lone dissenter also thinks that Bzdelik is a liability but took the view that Stewart made his own problems!) Whatever the reason, I hope that Ari Stewart finds himself at home at SC and is able to get meaningful playing time... and that he's learned something about dealing with challenging coaches ;) (Thanks to RAJohnston of Bloggers So Dear for the heads-up.)

Rick Neuheisel: UCLA, Pac-12 Shouldn't Play Nine Conference Games, Instead Should Play Texas 12 Times


I think it's safe to say that Avinash from California Golden Blogs isn't the world's biggest Rick Neuheisel fan, if this short article on SBNation Bay Area is any indication...

How would you change the NCAA?


It's safe to say that the NCAA has really hit a low in the realm of public opinion if ESPN's Gene Wojciechowski pens the following: Blow. It. Up. That's right. Find a chunk of C-4 as big as Jim...

Brad Otton makes pizza (and it's good, too)


In the category of "who'd have thought it," the LA Times has a story about Brad Otton bailing on coaching after a couple of years at UNLV under John Robinson, going to Italy to learn how to make pizza, and opening two successful artisan pizza places in Utah and Nevada, respectively. I'm a big fan of people finding a way to bring good food to people, no matter the type or where - so it's doubly gladdening to see a former SC guy do well at this particular endeavor.
