What a season for linebacker Palaie Gaoteote.
He transferred to Ohio State and played in seven games, making eight tackles with half a sack and a fumble recovery. Presumably, he can return for another season if he chooses.
- Michael Pittman caught 12 passes for 82 yards yesterday for the Indianapolis Colts. It’s funny to think Clay Helton was starting Jalen Greene at wide receiver but not Pittman at one time until Pittman’s father complained on twitter about his son’s playing time.
- The Battle of the Bulge took place during World War II between Dec. 16, 1944-Jan. 25, 1945. Among those who fought were Pvt. Tony Goux, who died on Dec. 20, 1944. He was the father of former USC assistant coach Marv Goux, who was only 12 years old at the time.
- Former USC player/coach Don Clark also saw action at the Battle of the Bulge.
