I am in the process of completing my second Masters degree from Cal State Northridge and am considering the pursuit of my PHD in social studies/history. Along the way, I have developed a passion for USC football, which I have followed for more than twenty years. In a somewhat less myopic state of mind, I also follow all things college football and most sports in general. My other passion is politics and I am very involved in following the day to day workings of the Washington DC movers and shakers...but my first love is sports and, as such, motivates my meager attempts at prose.

    My name is Camille bruno Valdez my partner and I have been trying for a baby for over two years now, We were going to a fertility clinic for about 5 months before somebody told us to contact this spell caster who is so powerful, We contacted him at this email; arewaspecialistttemple@gmail.com , for him to help us, then we told him our problem, he told us that we will either conceive in February 2014 or March 2014,but after two years of trying we were at a point where we were willing to try anything. And I'm glad we came to Dr Dahiru, Because his pregnancy spell cast put us at ease, and I honestly believe him, and his gods really helped us as well, I am thankful for all he has done. contact him via email: arewaspecialistttemple@gmail.com if you are trying to get a baby or want your lover back. he has powers to do it, he has done mine,

    Michael Castillo on Reign of Troy says: Langley is playing safety.

    Have you heard this? I know you didn't touch on this on 09JUL.

    Found a definition of Blueshirt:

    Basically, a blueshirt is a player who arrived on campus as a "preferred" or "recruited" walk-on and then eventually earns a football scholarship.

    We got a K today. What's a blueshirt?

    Chris Sailer Kicking rates Matt Booermeester a 5-star and #5 in the 2015 class.

    His review: Matt is an outstanding kicker He has a big time leg and hits an excellent ball. Very pure off the ground. Smooth and accurate. Kicks with tons of confidence. One of the most ready kickers we have seen. Kickoffs are also college ready. He will be one of the very best junior college prospect in the nation this upcoming season. Also a developing punter. Has a great attitude and work ethic. Big time prospect. Huge pick up for USC!

    Players I’d like to see USC offer: LBs DJ Beavers and Ben Humphreys, RBs Soso Jamabo, Bradrick Shaw, Chris Warren, Tim Irvin, Cameron Scarlett and Malik Roberson.

    Hey, I'd love to see an article stressing the importance of the 2015 class. Who we bring in in 2015 is VERY VERY important because we lose a ton of people at the end of that season -- all 22 of 2014 JRs and RSJRs are starters or possible starters this year. They will all be gone in 2016, so we'll need a lot of FR on the field in 2015. BTW: Good Job Lane Kiffin, a great class! (too bad you blew it in so many other areas!)

    Hey Rick, my friend... Where for art thou? I hope that your absence here on B/R is because you're on vacation. As I've mentioned before, your co-writers do a good job keeping us fans updated with the latest Trojan activities. However, you have a style of writing that keeps me interested and wanting more. Anyway, hurry back, will ya? You're missed.

    Rick had a thought for a article.
    Comparing College Coaches who have gone to the NFL among the College Conferences.
    Pac12vsSECvs.....and how successful they have been. Don't know if you would be the one to write it or if you think it is worth a write.
    But would like to read about it.
    Either way,
    Thanks as always for your great work.
