Wooden’s humor touched many

This is an excellent recap of today's memorial for Coach. The humor that all the speakers spoke of today is just another example of how Coach lived a balanced life. We all miss you Coach, but are happy that you are finally with your beloved.

NCAA rejects Memphis’ final appeal of vacated wins

It just makes me sick that an ineligible team was able to compete in the NCAA tournament and ultimately cost us another shot at #12. I understand that we didn't take care of our own business on the court, but I still think we matched up better against Kansas in the final. Not to mention, we probably would have had a more manageable match up in the semi-finals. I still hold out hope that the NCAA will get it right one of these days, and catch ineligible players ahead of time.

OT: SPTRs strike again. Outside of the PAC-10.

I happened to be in Kentucky visiting some friends and ended up going to the game between WKU and Houston last night. The game was pretty entertaining and could have had one of the best finishes I've seen had it not been for the officiating. After watching tons of PAC-10 games, something about the officiating felt very familiar to me. One of the officials makes a phantom foul call and proceeds to call a technical foul on WKU, which handed the victory to Houston after WKU tied the game. After doing a little research I found out that the official that made the call was none other than one our own SPTRs, Bill Kennedy. I have to thank the guy for making me feel at home and once again showing another part of the country how bad our "referees" truly are. Take a look at the comments people have made on the link provided. It truly doesn't look good for our conference when we have these guys officiating our games.

Rumor: Utah Utes to the new PAC-12, along with...

To me the second school listed in this story does not make sense. As we know, Utah, has been a school who has been mentioned in the possible PAC-10 expansion and makes sense regionally for the most part. However, the second school listed in the USA Today has left me scratching my head.

O’Bannon case could be a game changer

The US district court has denied the NCAA's plea to dismiss Ed O'Bannon's lawsuit against them. The lawsuit is over the use of former players' image and likeness in everything from video games to any other media that the NCAA produces. This isn't the first time that the NCAA has been sued over this issue. If you recall, Sam Keller sued the NCAA over the use of current players' image and likeness in NCAA related video games.

Trojan Times, What's your deal?

For the first time in years, I was compelled to write to the MSM, primarily a said columnist who has taken this opportunity to trash our Coach and his decision to call a time out. A decision that...

Leno Takes shot at the other school accross town.

I was watching the new Jay Leno show and he took a great shot at u$c. He said that u$c now stands for Unable to Score Consistently. You gotta love new Leno Show. Go Bruins.

NCAA places Alabama football program on probation

Alabama, a high profile program, gets placed on probation. Could this mean that u$c is next. Probably not. The NCAA just continues to find other cases to deal with, instead of dealing with the big elephant in the room.

You gotta love Yahoo! Sports.

NCAA accuses Memphis Tigers of violations

Arizona, traditional powerhouse?

I'm watching Around the Horn on the WWL, and I heard Jay Mariotti call Arizona the "traditional powerhouse" of the PAC-10, when he was talking about Timmay turning down Arizon job. Once again, the...
