Did you see former USC trustee Tom Barrack posted a $250 million bond today at his court hearing?
That doesn’t happen at every university.
The way USC doesn’t really play any one in non-conference games outside of Notre Dame make me feel some nostalgia with this USC-Alabama photo from 1977.
This was the same season USC also played Texas A&M.
- Here is the Yankees’ roster from the USC-Yankees game program in 1951, when the teams met at Bovard Field. Look at the names: Rizzuto, Berra, Coleman, DiMaggio, Mantle, etc.
Did you know their was a pool hall opposite the Shrine Auditorium in 1940?
And our restaurant of the week is Little Bit O’ Sweden, where you could eat the whole menu for $1.95.
- Bill Redell (below), the former Crespi and Oaks Christian coach, was a QB at USC in the early 1960’s. He transferred to Occidental when he saw the glut of QBs (Bill Nelsen, Pete Beathard, Craig Fertig).
Redell got a huge surprise at lunch today when his former Crespi star tailback Russell White showed up unexpectedly. You might remember White had 229 yards rushing and 3 TD’s in a 1991 52-30 victory over USC in Berkeley.
Russell White is the nephew of USC Heisman Trophy winner Charles White, No. 12 in the photo at the top of this article.
