Dear Trojan Family (and other interested parties) – There is no doubt that the weekend’s news that Pete Carroll was leaving USC for NFL pastures was a shock to the Trojan community.  Having spent all weekend religiously following what was happening, tapping sources close to the...

Trojan Family - I have more to write on Pete's departure and will post it later today. For now, I thought the following would generate discussion: This is not a "preferred order of candidates" - just names on a list and the pros/cons/etc. (1) Jeff Fisher -...

Though I still plan to throw out some "musings" throughout bowl season and perhaps around national recruiting deadline day, I do feel that this week's edition is bringing this season to a close.  It has been a lot of fun, and this year was certainly...

The halfway point in the season has come and gone, and the home stretch will be here before you know it (USC finishes its season with three home games in a row as 6 of the first 9 are road games - a bizarre schedule,...
