I’m sure there will be some type of video tribute to Sam Cunningham during Saturday’s football game.
But whatever it does will be catch-up.
Has USC even posted a photo gallery of Cunningham?
Has it treated his passing as a loss of football royalty? One bit of news. I’ve heard Cunningham was scheduled for back surgery this month.
- Remember how a dining hall ran out of food the first week of classes? Now it is becoming difficult to work out. Before COVID-19, the main facility to work out used to be open until midnight six days a week. It currently closes at 5:15 p.m.
- Former USC guard De’Anthony Melton ranks second in steals per 100 possessions in the NBA (with a minimum 2,000 minutes played), behind only Matisse Thybulle.
- This is probably the future around USC. A single-story house is being replaced by seven apartments with some ground-floor retail at 1128 37th Drive.
- Two weeks ago, USC tailback Kenan Christon was supposed to get more touches according to Clay Helton. Now he is “unavailable” for Saturday’s game and didn’t get a touch vs. San Jose State. So is Christon in health and safety protocols? Or is he transferring?
Either way, no good.
- Here’s what the ceremony looks like at today’s dedication of the new track office that shut down McClintock St. the past two days. Coach Bohn on left in his customary red jacket.
Carol Folt’s teleprompter initially was displaying her speech backwards. She didn’t look happy when the speech got fixed but didn’t catch up to where she was in the speech.
- Stanford cornerback Kyu Blue Kelly is the son of former USC cornerback Brian Kelly.
- USC defensive coordinator Todd Orlando is being mentioned as a candidate at UConn because he was an assistant coach there. Is there enough?
- Rich McGeagh, a 1964 Olympian swimmer and an NCAA champion in the 400-yard individual event, died on Thursday in Hermitage, Tenn., from COVID complications. He was 77.
McGeagh was a 3-time (1964-66) All-American at USC. He was a member of the 400-meter medley relay at the 1964 Olympics that won a gold medal. He did not receive a medal because he did not swim in the finals. Under today’s rules, he would have won a gold medal.
USC is allowing Monday Morning Quarterback with Clay Helton. But the first session is on Zoom which keeps fans safety tucked away from making any rude comments.
