USC is #24 in the Coaches Poll

+

Behind Oregon, Stanford, and #21 UCLA, and just ahead of #25 Oregon State. That means the Pac-12 has five top-25 teams. The SEC has six and the Big Ten has five. USC hasn't been ranked behind UCLA in the preseason since 2001.

A Look Back at 2000

Apologies for re-posting myself, and this isn't exactly on the same date in Trojan history, but I think it's fun to look back on some of USC's less-remembered victories, and this is the perfect...

20 ways to measure success

There has been a lot of talk about the Trojans not longer being in contention for a national title and Barkley no longer being considered for the Heisman. And there's been plenty of rebuttals that...

USC Trojans Marching Band performing in Times Square

Hundreds of fans (and dozens of confused tourists) turned out to see the band, Song Girls, and Spirit Squad, ahead of tomorrow's game against Syracuse in MetLife Stadium. Photos and videos from the USC Alumni Club of New York's Facebook Group.

Sports Illustrated to Drop "Bombshell" About UCLA Basketball

11

"Sports Illustrated paints a picture of a basketball team that is totally out of control, with no discipline at all from Coach Ben Howland. The article says his players routinely use drugs and alcohol, sometimes right before practice. It claims players would party all night long, even though there was a curfew in place. The article also says players fought with each other, sometimes intentionally injuring each other, and talked back to assistant coaches." This should be fun to watch...

Pete Arbogast's reaction to the win over Oregon?

I loved the 12 Plays of Christmas videos, especially hearing good old Pete Arbogast. I'm unable to listen to him now that I live outside Los Angeles. Some of the clips in the 12 Plays had audio...

The basketball player who's not allowed to play

1

Absolute nonsense. Anyone who still thinks that the NCAA exists to protect student-athletes should read this article. The organization, and one stubborn coach, are keeping an eligible player, who's pursuing a graduate degree, from playing the game that he loves.

Barkley not among Heisman finalists

So...that means he has unfinished business and has to come back next year, right?

The Pac-12 will never be as good as the Pac-10

For, at the very least, one reason: USC will never again face UCLA with the Rose Bowl on the line. At most, it will be for the division championship, and then when that team plays the North...

Sporting News names 1972 USC team the #2 college football team ever

4

Their #1 pick was the 1971 Nebraska Cornhuskers. The early 70s must have been pretty good for college football. Our '72 squad was the only USC team to make the list. I wonder if SN didn't want to consider '04 or '05 because now they technically never took place. I'd sure vote the 2004 team one of the best of all time. Maybe '05, if for no other reason than they averaged 49 points per game. And hey, they were 19 seconds away from the national championship.

Pac-12 pulls video that Bruins Nation deemed "deeply offensive"

   Remember the Pac-12 ad that aired during the USC-Minnesota game? One of the last images was that of the Trojan Warrior plunging his sword into the UCLA logo at the Rose Bowl. When I saw it, I...

USC Drops Out of AP Top 25

1

This isn't surprising. When you're ranked #25 and beat an unranked team by two points at home, you're not going to be in the poll the next week. However, USC received 69 votes, placing them at #28, so a good showing against Utah, plus some stumbles from a few ranked teams (TCU? Missouri?) should get the Trojans back in.

Tommy Trojan - Stolen! This is from a book called The Mythic Warrior's Handbook, a humor book that provides a light-hearted look at Greek mythology. Every chapter begins with this image, clearly a pencil drawing of the top half of Tommy Trojan. Tommy and USC are not mentioned or credited anywhere in the book. I'm not sure if it constitutes a copyright violation (it's an original drawing, after all) but it would have been nice to give credit to the school or the sculptor or someone. And isn't it interesting that the two authors provide only their first initials? This is probably some kind of global conspiracy.

USC improves to 22-12 overall with the win. The Trojans now are lined up against either Wyoming or Colorado in the WNIT Quarterfinals on Sunday. Might be interesting if it's the Buffaloes -- the first Pac-12 rivalry game?
