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.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
