Dear 2010 USC football season: I never thought I’d be asking you this, not after all the good times we’ve had in the past. But, respectfully of course, I have a simple request: Just end already. Look, I knew things were going to be difficult this year. I was prepared for less flash and more […]
How things can change in a week. Last week I wrote that USC was on track for a 10-win season and that it would finish the season on a roll much like it has in previous years. Now, everything that seemed so certain a week ago is mired in doubt. Everything changed after the Trojans […]
