The election-eve L.A. Times poll had him at 32 percent but he ended up with 42 percent of the vote and advanced to the November general election.
She got 38 percent of the vote to ensure a USC-flavored general election for Mayor of Los Angeles.

USC 4×100 relay team
There was a time when USC dominated the short relays but this was the first NCAA title in the event for the Trojan men since 1980.
Can you imagine a USC assistant coach (Alex Grinch, Graham Harrell, Clancy Pendergast) pulling off being in an episode of Columbo? Marv Goux did it.
USC’s offered some transfers but failed to land one so far. Will the Trojans go into next season with only the players on the current roster?
Jack Del Rio
Quite a week. Fined $100,000. Deleted Twitter account. And pretty much killed whatever fantastical inner hope he had of one day being USC coach.
Lost top pitcher Carson Lambert, who transferred to Texas A&M. Hard to believe this is the most successful baseball program in NCAA history with 12 titles.

I’ll give an award for losing the top baseball player (Lambert) and soccer player (Penelope Hocking) in the same year.
