Has Any Coach Ever Done Less With More Than Lane Kiffin?

Watch enough football for long enough, and eventually you'll see everything. I believe this: In this calendar year alone we've seen a one-point safety, a Heisman finalist cop to having an imaginary girlfriend, and a 300-pound left tackle score on a hook-and-lateral, among other improbable feats. And I believe that, at… » 9/12/13 4:00pm 9/12/13 4:00pm

USC's In Dire Need Of An Image Makeover


USC's athletic programs have been getting rightfully shit-winded by all of this O.J. Mayo mess in the last couple days (and, before that, Reggie Bush) but it'll be tough to find a more comprehensive list of the school's indiscretions during the Pete Carroll/Tim Floyd eras than the one put together by Bruins Nation. » 5/15/08 5:01pm 5/15/08 5:01pm

It's Always Nice To Have A Fifth String Point Guard Who Has Some Flow

As you might know, hip-hop whiz kid Lil' Romeo will be attending the University of Southern California next year on a basketball scholarship. This despite his, you know, not being very good at all.

Is this the Game of Shadows of college football? There's apparently enough evidence of financial impropriety involving Bush at USC to make that case (Adam Rose… » 1/10/08 12:35pm 1/10/08 12:35pm
