If It’s Friday, It’s Time For A USC Notes Column

Is there anyone USC isn’t interested in that’s entered the transfer portal this week?

“When you’re 15-plus (scholarships) below the baseline, 85, I don’t know if there’s a position that’s exempt from that,” USC assistant coach Roy Manning said. “You don’t have a disadvantage competitively, so it’s our duty and obligation to make sure that this team is sufficient from a number standpoint.”

  • Florida State linebacker Jadarius Green-McKnight, a Class of 2020 four-star recruit, entered the transfer portal Thursday. USC is interested, naturally.
  • Former USC safety Chase Williams has transferred to San Jose State. I was worried Williams might not find a school because there is a considerable group of players that are still looking for a college. The transfer portal isn’t always great for the athlete.
  • Art Bartner, the former USC band director, will be signing copies of his autobiography Saturday and Sunday at the USC Bookstore. If you go, tell him that former USC professor Frank Baxter has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and won seven Emmys. Why do I say this? Remember what I said about the egos of some USC professors.
  • The actress Sharon Gless will also be at USC this weekend too for the L.A. Times Festival of Books. Her husband, Barney Rosenzweig, was a popular male cheerleader at USC in the 1950’s.
  • You can pay $14 to park on campus Saturday and walk to the Coliseum or $25 to park at the Coliseum.

RESTAURANT OF THE WEEK

MICELI’S

1646 N. Las Palmas Ave., Hollywood (1949)

The oldest Italian restaurant and pizzeria in Hollywood. It might be known for its singing waiters, some of whom worked in Broadway shows.

Or maybe it’s better known for a scene in “The Terminator.”

Sarah Conner is being pursued, runs into Miceli’s and goes upstairs to the bar. A news report  is being broadcast on the bar’s TV,  asking the public for anyone with the name of Sarah Connor to call the police. She goes over to the pay phone (which was installed for the movie) but it’s out of order and she runs out. I’ll be back.

Past customers at Miceli’s included Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe.

  • Speaking of DiMaggio and Monroe, this is something few remember. In the late 1950’s, the famous duo attended a USC game. The pair sat in a VIP section of the Coliseum. At halftime, ABC-TV wanted to interview DiMaggio so he came into the pressbox and went to the broadcast booth. He was not joined by Monroe, who remained in the stands.

Imagine the scene if a comparable celebrity sighting happened today at the Coliseum?

  • And now for some history:
  • This glorious color photo looks like the 1967 USC-UCLA game. Bruin star QB Gary Beban is being pursued by Trojan All-American Jimmy Gunn. It’s worth noting Gunn wore No. 56 in 1967 before he switched to No. 83 in 1968.
  • Can you name a USC player who started consecutive Rose Bowls at opposite positions?

The answer is Bill Redding, who started at middle guard in 1968 and center in 1969. Redding had 20 tackles in a 20-13 victory over Oregon in 1968 and was all-Pac-8 Conference.

But he switched to center in 1969 and started every game that season. He was 6-foot-1, 233 pounds and ran a 4.6 40-yard dash.

I previously mentioned how USC had good luck moving defensive linemen to the offense (Ron Yary, John Vella). Redding was another example. After college, he was also a graduate assistant at USC.

This photo below is from 1969 so it’s possible Redding is buried somewhere in there. He wore No. 56.

  • You didn’t get much of a roster in 1931 judging by this USC-Notre Dame game program from that season. But it’s a significant game because USC snapped Notre Dame’s 26-game unbeaten streak with a 16-14 victory in South Bend.

More than 300,000 attended a ticker-tape parade in Los Angeles to celebrate the Trojans’ victory. Remember, the team had to take a train back from Notre Dame in those days. USC won the national championship that season.

And here’s a photo from the game.

  • Last week I told the story of Stubby Shaw punching one of his customers through the swinging doors at his bar on Figueroa and 37th street. He was also a fixture to students in the 1950’s and would sponsor intramural basketball teams that featured actual players like Jim Kaufman and Danny Rogers.
  • Here’s Art Brewster from 1982 with a tribute to Bruce Matthews and Don Mosebar.
  • Does it ever get better than Ricky Bell on a game program in 1975.
  • In 1975, the San Fernando High School trio of wide receiver Kevin Williams (32), tailback Charles White (12) and quarterback Kenny Moore (22) were all named L.A. Section Player of the Year. And they all went to USC.
  • This was the golden age of San Fernando football. It won the City title in 1974 and 1975. White and Williams became stars at USC so I want to focus on Moore, who actually was probably the biggest name of the group in high school.

Moore also was the L.A. City Player of the Year in 1974. He was only the second player to win Player of the Year twice in the City Section.

He had 4,085 yards in total offense at San Fernando, rushing for 19 touchdowns and passing for 27. He was a Parade All-American and was the brother of former USC players Manfred and Malcolm Moore.

He also played defensive back, which was his position in college. While Moore was at USC, he played with some of the best safeties in school history (Dennis ThurmanRonnie LottDennis Smith).

  1. Jadarious Green-McKnight has the physical stature of a cornerback, which is probably why he was on the bench at Florida State. 🤔🤔 And those are some great photos of Charles White, Kevin Williams, and Malcom Moore. That trio will never be duplicated in LA City High School football, because the demographics have drastically changed. Soccer has taken over football in the city section, but thank goodness they’re still competitive in basketball.

  2. It’s Riley show eve, and nary a word about it? If I had known about Bartner’s signing autographs I might have made the pilgrimage, but alas I will be out of town.
    I don’t know how many Trojan fans hate going into the downtown area like I do, but it would be an interesting poll to find out.
    The whole closed in feeling of Los Angeles is more than I can tolerate for more than a day at a time. I was born in Inglewood but my parents moved to Covina shortly after that. I worked at 4th and Spring in an old bank building where a bogus trade school was swindling JTPA funds from the government. I took a train and bus to work, and was never brown enough for the company. The biggest thing of bother was walking anywhere for lunch. The smell of urine emanating from doorways was horrible and those who marked their territory in said doorways would follow you too and fro.
    I guess I never had a good experience downtown.

  3. Actually, Ghost, I get that closed-in feeling in any large world city I have ever been in, but there is always an escape hatch to a large park. In London there is Kensington, Paris has a large park annexed to its new section, and in L.A. a mile out is Elysian Park and Historical Park.

    1931 and 300,000 L.A.ers meet the conquering Trojans as they embark from a 2-day Chicago train ride. That is 10- times larger than any Dodgers, Lakers, or Rams “parade.”

    Those were the days when SC football was the sports king of L.A., largely due to having no professional or sucla competition.

  4. Preceding Charles White’s team was a San Fernando Valley squad led by quarterback Anthony Davis aka A.D. It was the 1970 City Championship game between San Fernando and Granada Hills, and on the kickoff A.D. took it all the way back for a touchdown (sound familiar?). However, Granada Hills had an All-City quarterback, Dana Pagett or something I think, and he carved up San Fernando.

    And I will never forget that just before the game ended, about 50 angry San Fernando fans began to march across to the Granada Hills stands before they were stopped. (I wonder if they all later attended sucla)

  6. That 74/75 San Fernando football team was amazing. Kenny Moore the QB, and they featured 3 running backs in the same backfield similar to the wishbone with Ray Williams ( Washington State), Kevin “Bug” Williams (USC), and of course Charles White. No one could stop that offense.

    Ken Williams, was quite small but became a clutch receiver for USC because of his great speed. Unfortunately, he has now passed away after a train accident.

    What has happenned to Charles White. He use to work at USC, but you never hear of him anymore which makes me wonder if he is in bad health.

  19. OWNS- Looks like even the players at UCLA are jumping off the ship at UCLA especially on defense due to the lack of interest in UCLA football. The Rose Bowl will be empty the entire season, and the players know the program is sinking so they are getting out of Dodge. Only girls wear powder blue uniforms on Saturdays, and even with “free tickets” no one goes to UCLA football games. UCLA Football will be homeless soon the State of California is tired of paying the rent for UCLA at the Rose Bowl.

    Ucla DL Odua Isibor hits the portal

    Guy signed in 2017 and played a lot as a reserve. Had 57 tackles and 5.5 sacks in his career at ucla. According to Bra, he was in a good position to be a starter and has been in with the 1’s all spring. Que pasa Bruins?

      1. Chip Kelly for the money. No passion in that program. They should be in contention every year.

  21. Well the spring game is here. Which one of these cupcake players will have a season ending injury today? Caleb maybe? Dye?, my money is on that softy overhyped Korey Foreman. Heard he went to high school with Jackson. They are both softie’s!

  22. Scott, your column is amazing as always.

    Is it possible to get the picture of (supposed) Bill Redding as a separate attachment so it can be downloaded and printed. That is me blocking in front of Clarence Davis and I am not in that many pictures. Need it for the Grandkids.

    Thanks, Fred Khasigian ________________________________
