Important stuff

Posted By on Mon, Aug 21, 2006 at 5:48 AM

From the LA Times:

USC Coach Pete Carroll went to great lengths to simulate conditions the Trojans will face when they travel to Arkansas for their Sept. 2 opener.

The night before Sunday's mock game at the Coliseum, the team stayed in an unfamiliar hotel. The pregame routine and 7:45 p.m. kickoff were timed to be identical to those the Trojans will have against the Razorbacks, and recorded crowd noise was piped in on a state-of-the-art sound system.

Still unknown, however, is whether Arkansas' defense will be better than the scout-team unit USC's offense mostly picked apart for a much-needed confidence boost before an estimated crowd of 15,000.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
