Well, that was less painful than expected.
So... there's that.

Yeah, I didn't expect them to win, but it was closer than I expected it to be.
There's always next year!!

I coached my daughter's soccer tournament all weekend so I didn't see any of the game. I was surprised by the close score and then by Plaschke's positive column about the game (after that crappy column the day before about Norm going back to 'SC!). Maybe Skippy can build on it.
Hey Joe, how is law school (it is law school right??)? How you liking 'DC? I was born in Alexandria and always loved it there.

He makes some good comments in the article. It's true that USC is so loaded with players that he might or might not get a chance to play. We will probably see this trend to continue as players are not even starting to transfer from USC to school where they can crack the line up weekly.

Scout.com's Tracy Pierson notes that this COULD represent a turning point in LA college football.

It helps that you have Neuheisel/Chow when you're trying to recruit an offensive player to UCLA.
Furthermore, Presley and Brehaut may tag-team recruit other area players to UCLA. Presley's high profile will influence other kids' decisions, particularly locals.
