Matt Barkley’s college career is over thanks to shoulder injury

Thursday, December 27th, 2012

USC head football coach Lane Kiffin confirmed what many suspected on Thursday, as he announced that quarterback Matt Barkley would not be playing in the 2012 Sun Bowl thanks to an injured throwing shoulder. That announcement means that Barkley's storied, record-shattering collegiate career is now over. It's a disappointment for USC ...

USC Trojans: Pat Haden gives Lane Kiffin the oddest endorsement of the season

Friday, November 2nd, 2012

Less than a week ago, I mused about whether USC head coach Lane Kiffin's job was in trouble after their debacle at Arizona last Saturday. The loss was an ugly one that knocked the Trojans out of contention for anything but the Pac-12 title and maybe an at-large BCS berth ...

USC Trojans: Could Kiffin be fired?

Sunday, October 28th, 2012

I know, I know, it's such a knee-jerk thing to say, and normally this is a rhetorical device in which I would set about disproving that this is a knee-jerk thing to say. Instead, I'll just embrace it. The USC 39-36 loss to Arizona on Saturday was nothing short of ...

College Football: Week four in memes

Happy week four. Indiana had the week off, so I may have unwittingly enjoyed an entire Saturday of football without any thoughts of self-harm. Enjoy this week's memes!

College Football: Week three in memes

Monday, September 17th, 2012

Enjoy week three of college football in meme form. And remember that your team could have been one of the ones who were upset this weekend. Or blown out by Fresno State. Or somehow let the game end up in the hands of Indiana's awful defense so they ended up ...

USC Football: Matt Barkley Billboard Near UCLA Taken Down

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

A billboard featuring USC quarterback Matt Barkley has mysteriously disappeared from a street just a few blocks from UCLA's campus. No, it wasn't stolen, but it was taken down and no one seems to be taking responsibility for it. The billboard was up at the intersection of Westwood Boulevard and Lindbrook ...

Seantrel Henderson: Miami Tackle Running Out of Chances

Thursday, August 23rd, 2012

The USC Trojans' overly-harsh punishment from the NCAA may have actually done the program at least one small favor. Offensive tackle prospect Seantrel Henderson had originally chosen the Trojans and signed a letter of intent to play football for Lane Kiffin. He was supposed to be the marquee signing for ...

Kiffin Versus The Coaches’ Poll: Why It’s Happening At All

Saturday, August 11th, 2012

I have a few theories as to why Lane Kiffin would get himself into this easily avoidable kerfuffle about the USA Today Coaches' Poll. Kiffin somehow managed to say he wouldn't vote for his own team to be number one in the initial poll, voted for them anyway, got called out by ...
