I was having my coffee this morning when I saw a really rude Facebook status update. A friend of mine, a die-hard Philadelphia Eagles fan, was relieved that wide receiver Desean Jackson was talking to Chip Kelly and looking to stay with the Eagles. “Especially,” he wrote, “after hearing that we’re gonna sign Mark ‘Butt Fumble’ […]
After suffering an embarrassing loss to Washington State in their home opener, the Trojans are determined to claim victory this week.
When USC head coach Lane Kiffin announced in July at Pac-12 Media Day that he’d be calling plays for the upcoming 2013 season, it made sense to me.
