The two Drakes
Does USC realize every time it hypes up wide receiver Drake London or defensive end Drake Jackson it reminds the fans it didn’t use either player enough last season? It can’t make the same mistake in 2021, can it?
USC song girls
The fact Lori Nelson resigned as coach is a big win for the song girls. If they scrap the current selection committee and make things transparent, it will be even better.
USC women’s basketball
If Mark Trakh was forced to retire, he would have the distinction of being forced out two times at USC. I guess LSU got Kim Mulkey before USC had a chance to hire her (just kidding).
USC women’s golf
Pac-12 champs. Some cello-recital applause for a program that people don’t recognize when they deserve praise.
I’m still laughing the baseball team stuck it to Mike Bohn and the rest of the administration over limiting attendance to a women’s soccer game to several hundred while football was allowed 5,000 for the scrimmage (and didn’t appear to get it).
USC had four players leave practice Saturday: RB Brandon Campbell, WR Michael Jackson, OG Liam Jimmons and LB Tuasivi Nomura. None of the injuries were considered serious but it seems like a lot of players got hurt this spring.
The criteria for renaming the VKC building seems to have an almost-impossible-to-meet standard. Oh, when is the same thing going to happen to Cromwell Field?
Swept in Arizona and now sitting in seventh place in the Pac-12. It looks like the program is in a better place than two years ago but when do results show it?
The deadline for renewing football season tickets keeps getting extended and people keep declining to renew. When is the Salute to Troy? Kidding again.
