Al Davis Is Always Good For A Laugh

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis, who is still alive thanks to nightly readings of the Necronomicon and the daily drinking of virgin blood (or so we hear), hired a new coach on Tuesday. Yes, Raiders offensive coordinator Hue Jackson was promoted to the big job, but more importantly, Davis used ...

Despite Sanctions Lane Kiffin And USC Reeling In Recruits

Tuesday, January 18th, 2011

USC was supposed to be dead. The Trojans were buried by what most feel were excessive penalties in the wake of the Reggie Bush ruling by the NCAA. But somehow Lane Kiffin and his staff have chugged right along on the recruiting trail, pulling in commitments as if those penalties ...

Lane Kiffin’s Job Is Not In Jeopardy

Friday, December 3rd, 2010

Noted moron Bill Plaschke of the Los Angeles Times made the case Thursday that USC head coach Lane Kiffin could be fired if the Trojans lose to UCLA this weekend. Now, putting aside the fact that Plaschke has always been a UCLA honk, and forgiving him for having the IQ ...

USC To Start Two True Freshmen In Opener

Saturday, August 28th, 2010

It hasn't happened since records began being kept after World War II. USC will start a freshman at wide receiver, and a freshman will also start at cornerback. USC has never opened a season with a true freshman at either of those spots since WWII. That's insane. Robert Woods, rated as ...

USC Is Pretty Much The nWo At This Point

Monday, July 26th, 2010

My favorite part of the Tennessee Titans' outrage at USC is how this is just one more step in USC's heel turn in college football. Before you know it, the "win forever" kids from the Pete Carroll Era are going to turn into blonde fu-manchu with ...
