If It’s Friday, It’s Time For The USC Notes Column



Sam Darnold and JT Daniels posed together earlier this week.

Yup, Darnold’s taller.

Will it be an issue this season? We will see.

  • Do you think Chip Kelly is going through any kind of culture shock at UCLA?

He released a top 100 player, wide receiver Bryan Addison of Gardena Serra, after some problems with the UCLA admissions office and college board. Even worse, Addison is cleared to play at Oregon (and USC).

This was something I mentioned when Kelly got hired. He would deal with admissions issues he never faced at Oregon.

Now he will likely face Addison, who will be immediately eligible at the schools he is considering: Arizona State, Oregon, USC, Nebraska and Washington.

  • USC tight end Tyler Petite is on the watch list for the Mackey Award. Center Toa Lobendahn is on the watch list for the Rimington Trophy.
  • On this day in 1969, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin became the first men to walk on the moon after reaching the surface in their Apollo 11 lunar module. Armstrong graduated from USC’s School of Engineering in 1970 with a master’s degree in aerospace engineering.

There is a statue of Armstong at USC.

  1. Scooter,

    I’m surprised that you didn’t rag on ugly in regards to Addison being rejected by ugly. Anything is possible over there, just ask Billy Joe Jackson. Oh, you don’t remember him, he was accepted to ugly to play football back in 1975, even though he could not read or write.


    1. As a wise friend of mine said very recently, karma — “uh, it’s best we don’t go there…”


  2. Well as long as there’s reminiscing about 49 years ago it was also the same week in 1969 that Teddy Kennedy left Mary Jo Kopechne in the car off Chappaquiddick Island


  3. Rusiovet,

    My question is how did he not serve jail time? Oh, that’s right, he was a Kennedy and they could do whatever they wanted. Sounds like slick Wiley and his henchman, Hillary.
