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.
