O.J. case still fascinates America

It’s been 22 years since O.J. Simpson took off with Al Cowlings in his white Ford Bronco and led officers on a wild slow-speed pursuit around Los Angeles that unfolded on national television like a scene from a movie. Most stories die down and slip away from public memory after a decade or two. This […]


It’s hard to say goodbye

A little more than four years ago, while cruising down PCH with my mother and sister, I got my first glimpse of it. The scene was set: sun shining, wind blowing, ocean on the horizon. The beauty of Mother Nature around me complemented the allure of what sat right in front of me — a fresh […]


Swann needs to continue progress

USC Athletics reminds me of a heavy-duty locomotive. Something can attempt to stop it with all of its might, but 99 times out of 100, that locomotive is going to continue to steamroll in its desired direction with little to no damage done to it. Almost six years ago, the NCAA tried to become that […]


Kobe was bigger than just basketball

From time to time, I close my eyes and imagine the 8-year-old kid who used to run up and down a shadow-filled court under the stars with a basket barely lit up by the radiant moon and a flickering light. He stood with the ball in a triple-threat position at the top of the 3-point […]

Tensions  are high in the Lakers locker room upon the public release of tapings taken by  Lakers rookie D’Angelo Russell of a controversial conversation with teammate Nick Young. In an effort to assert […]


Pac-12 has been a big letdown

Selection Sunday rolled around a week ago and based on the draw, I would imagine that Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott was in a room somewhere jumping for joy and dishing out high-fives to his colleagues. A record seven teams were tapped by the selection committee to join the 68-field team that made up the 2016 […]


QB contest is positive for Trojans

USC football kicked off spring practice on Tuesday, and for the first time in three years, the Trojans will be hosting a quarterback competition that is expected to turn some heads not only going into the summer, but also potentially into the fall. With the departure of Cody Kessler, it appears that head football coach […]


Nikias is making mark on athletics

As Athletic Director Pat Haden prepares to retire in June, a vacancy opens for one of the country’s most renowned posts in college sports. A national search firm has been employed and an advisory committee has been assembled in order to help find the University’s next head of athletics, but ultimately, President C. L. Max […]
