Here’s another picture from 1978 of my favorite USC basketball uniforms. With Cliff Robinson in the center, of course. Kansas is ready to join the Pac-12. Continue reading USC Notes: Is Kansas Ready To Join Pac-12?
Former USC basketball player Chimezie Metu is playing in the Olympics for Nigeria. After the basketball team was eliminated last night, he blasted the government and Olympic Committee of Nigeria. For example, the basketball team’s flight from Oakland to Tokyo took 30 hours because it went through Germany to save money. A flight from Oakland to Tokyo takes 11 hours. Seven members of Coach Mike … Continue reading Chimezie Metu Rips Nigeria For Mistreatment Of Athletes
I wrote this morning about John McKay benching five starters after losing his USC debut to Oregon State, 14-0, in 1960 as the Trojans fumbled five times. Well, McKay didn’t get his first win until Game 4 when the Trojans defeated Georgia, 10-3, at the Coliseum. Georgia featured QB Fran Tarkenton but the Friday night game drew only 28,120.

I have a funny/frustrating story from Pac-12 media day here. Meanwhile, it looks like Evan Mobley is headed to Cleveland with the No. 3 pick, based on reports. This assumes no trades change things. With Jason Hart leaving, USC needs a big-time assistant. You might say, “Well, Andy Enfield hired Hart, so why can’t he do something similar again?” Because here is how Hart and … Continue reading USC Notes: Where Will Evan Mobley Go? Can Enfield Hire Assistant?
