Is USC capable of surprising anyone anymore?
There’s no such thing as a quiet week anymore. Something is always happening.
College admissions scandal? New president? What else?
This looked like a quiet week and then Matt Fink transferred. Even what looked like a harmless day at the beach for the offensive linemen and JT Daniels turned into an issue when an insider revealed on twitter that Daniels’ father put the event together and the other quarterbacks and some linemen passed on the event.
It’s safe to say Daniels’ father is a more polarizing figure at USC than his son.
- Whoever starts at QB, USC better develop its offensive line and cornerbacks if it wants to win next season.
- Was Lynn Swann at the USC basketball banquet Wednesday night? If you saw him there, let me know.
- Swann probably thinks he did USC a favor by skipping the Masters last weekend.
- I have to admit Clay Helton limiting his media appearances during spring practices made it more tolerable since he usually talks rubbish.
- A memorial celebration for All-American offensive lineman Pete Adams will be held Saturday at 2 p.m. at the Encinitas Elks Lodge (1393 Windsor Rd., Cardiff, Calif. 92007).
- USC pitcher Connor Lunn pitched a four-hit complete-game shutout against Washington State on Thursday night as the Trojans defeated the Cougars, 4-0. Lunn has beaten UCLA, Arizona State, Utah and Washington State the past four weeks in the opening game of each three-game series. Lunn is 6-1 overall with a 2.30 ERA and allowed only 33 hits in 54.2 innings.
- Former USC offensive lineman Tyron Smith will hold his Youth Football Camp at Rancho Verde High School on May 4 from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. Register online at http://www.tyronsmithyouthfootballcamp.com
- I’ve never been to OB’s Pub and Grill in Manhattan Beach but it does have the “Julie’s Sandwich” on the menu, a “grilled roast beef and cheese on sour dough sandwich with Au Jus. A tradition for over 50 years.” This is the same sandwich that featured at Julie’s restaurant at USC for many years. OB’s used to be owned by Steve and Jim Obradovich, who also ran Julie’s. Julie Kohl opened her restaurant in 1941 and sold it in 1975 but it remained unchanged until it closed in 1997.
