The future USC tailback/sprinter (pictured above) tied a California state record with a wind-legal 10.30 seconds at the state championship track meet. The question is how long Christon can do football and track without having to choose only one. This is addressed here.
“Plan A, as his father calls it, is to play football for USC in the fall and run college track in the spring, and then see where he stands. Maybe do it again as a sophomore and a junior and a senior. Maybe play in the NFL and run in an Olympics.”
The USC women’s basketball team’s best player spent three years playing for Cynthia Cooper and Mark Trakh and now gets to go to Oregon and compete for a national title.
She ran the 200 meters in 22.36 seconds at the NCAA West Regionals, the top NCAA time this season, second-best in the world and third-best on USC’s all-time list. She was the key and under-reported reason USC won the NCAA title last season and amazingly, spent her first two seasons at UCLA.
The Trojans won four of their final six series. Too little too late. But if Lynn Swann actually does his job, a coaching change should be imminent.
The Trojans finished 25-29-1 in his seventh season. Overall, he is 188-200-1 with a lone NCAA Tournament appearance in 2015. That was four years ago and the program has stagnated since because Swann doesn’t care about baseball.
The USC senior associate athletic director told the Athletic: “We’re looking at schools that might not even be FBS, which I don’t think it’s that big of a deal. We may get criticized if and when we do it, but everybody does it.”
And . . . nobody . . . cares.
