    He says 'Bruins,' they say 'Go'
    The world's oldest living cheerleader knows he can not only inspire, but irritate. He knows his corny chants can grate on every man, woman and child. He knows there are folks who wish he would just sit down and shut up. But until recently, he never quite...
  • The national pastime becomes a time machine

    The national pastime becomes a time machine
    I'm playing hooky. It's Thursday around noon, and a column is due, but it's 1970 and I'm playing hooky. I'm watching baseball. Gloriously sunny, rapturously dramatic, midweek playoff baseball. I'm sitting in my living room in the middle of the day...
  • Half a college football season has already been full of surprises

    Half a college football season has already been full of surprises
    USC would break offensive air-speed records, Matt Barkley was a lock for the Heisman Trophy and Oregon State Coach Mike Riley needed thicker pants for the hot seat he was sitting on. Arkansas was the team to beat in the SEC West — it seems so silly...
  • It's not a great day for good teams in college football

    It's not a great day for good teams in college football
    It was a rotten day to be undefeated, or USC, or the BCS standings, which suddenly got indigestion. It was great to be Kansas State, Kent State, Ohio State, Florida State, Michigan State, Boise State, McNeese State — but not New Mexico State or...

    St. John Bosco routs Santa Margarita for first Trinity League title

  • Don Chargin recalls glory days of boxing at Olympic Auditorium

    Don Chargin recalls glory days of boxing at Olympic Auditorium
    Boxing keeps turning up the volume on the hype. Apparently, if you sell it loudly, fewer will notice if it is lousy. Oscar De La Hoya, never lousy in the ring, was presenting a card of boxers at a media gathering the other day for a Saturday night show...
  • Don't give USC the 10-count just yet

    Don't give USC the 10-count just yet
    USC can get back in the national hunt only if it adopts our 10-step self-help program. The plan does not involve blending wheat grass with beets and carrot juice or walking over hot coals. It does require some post-Andrew luck, the boys catching a few...
  • USC is a long way from a preseason No. 1

    USC is a long way from a preseason No. 1
    The storm may have passed, but the rumblings persist. You could feel them in the frustrated waving of Matt Barkley's arms. You could see them in the balls dropping from Curtis McNeal's and Robert Woods' fingers. You could hear them in whistles for helmet...
  • In memory of Jack Beasley, a guy you may not have noticed, but should have

    In memory of Jack Beasley, a guy you may not have noticed, but should have
    Jack Beasley died. You might say “Who?” and I wouldn't disagree. I knew him like I do so many people: To say hello, chat a little, laugh a little, so I really didn't know him at all. But you probably saw him, a regular part of your life...
  • USC women's lacrosse team debuts Saturday against Northwestern

    USC women's lacrosse team debuts Saturday against Northwestern
    There will be big doings for USC athletics Saturday at the Coliseum. And no, Matt Barkley did not get another year of eligibility. This has to do with lacrosse, which brings to mind one of two things for most of us: a medium-sized city in Wisconsin or a...
  • College games on Friday nights could divide Southern California

    College games on Friday nights could divide Southern California
    In its never-ending quest for more money and more TV exposure, the Pac-12 Conference is taking dead aim at something that used to be considered unfathomable — playing college football on Friday nights. The commissioner, Larry Scott, gave ample...
