Yesterday, Fox Sports aired a segment that featured Bob Oschack giving USC students a "good, old-fashioned All-American welcome" to Colorado and Utah, the newest members of the Pac-1012.

David Hasselhoff Is a Crazy, Wild Arizona Football Fan

Who likes hanging out with his daughter in the student section. With a camera. Really, he does. Allegedly this is because he has at least one daughter attending Arizona. Which makes complete sense. Because everyone who has ever been to college wants their dad or mom to bring a handheld video camera into the student… » 9/08/08 4:30pm 9/08/08 4:30pm
