So if a restaurant in a restaurant is sent a semi-baked dinner that is not badly prepared, is it satisfied with the cook and another reservation for the following week?
It seems to me that I intend to keep Helton Coach, Mike Bohn created that the USC athletics directors are not always on the sea in Troy! The same thing and expecting to define different results does not give a winning coach … or a strong athletic director, for that reason!
How should the USC keep a football coach with integrity, when a person from Urban Meyer is out there, waiting to win games at all?
USC fans re-establish themselves as the worst.
The positive one about Mike Bohn's catastrophic decision to return Helton is that there will be about 20,000-30,000 more people attending AYSO games for their children.
I have never been a USU fan, because I graduate of this football factory down the road at San Diego State.
But in the light of all the impartiality, all the glamor and lamentation for a good man like Helton Helton were kept as a supporter of Helton.
Jim B. Parsons
As a 1965 MSU graduate, I am suffering almost 54 years of rubbish as the USC is a football factory where academics take a back seat.
Meanwhile, the USC has emerged as a highly regarded academic institution, but the aura is still there. The right decision has been made by Bohn's Athletic director and President Folt. Hopefully, the point will come that academics come first and football is a fun but secondary element of college life. And these loyal, stable and enthusiastic employees will be retained.

Memo by Mike Bohn: In keeping Helton, the USC did something that Trojans big teams never volunteered: We punished us.
Gary B. Ross
After Mike Bohn's incompetent decision to keep Clay Helton, I now know that Mary Ann, Ginger and Professor were trying to leave that island every week. Fight, Gilligan!
Garden City, N.Y.
P.T. Barnum was right. A sucker is born every minute. USC season ticket holders spent thousands of dollars in refurbishment fees for the Coliseum. In return, the university puts on our nose through Clay Helton. “S” on the MSU season ticket holders shirt certainly stands for “suckers.”
City of Angels
I'm not sure if the photo of Clay Helton on page one of the sports section was on a pre-conscious Thursday or a metaphor, and it seems to show the coach as a parade leader … without a stick! Is the parade going another way? Or is his team going the other way?
The LA Plasmake Sports Czar must be held. USC is asking as many questions as to probity and the honor and football is one. I mean not to go back to Pete Carroll's era and Reggie Bush. The USC does not have to be a great football school and a good university. It must be a great university with a team like football. The administration of the USC appears to be moving to restore the loss. Give them a chance.
It is not important at all, Arash Markazi, for the USC president or HR to get the fingers of the fan base. Indeed, it would be a mistake.
After all the problems that the university had recently they need to finger to keep their school ethics blow. The president is in charge of the whole school and two dozen programs, some of which won national championships. Fans of the football team should be a minimum of the worries they have.

The way I see it, the lesser question about USC who want to return Clay Helton back in 2020 – without any reason – or even the reasons why it was retained, but instead, becomes the main one. interim coach Trojans after the open loss to Alabama when noise cacophony reaches unprecedented decibels?
I was surprised that the USC decided to continue the program of disadvantage in football when Clay Helton was detained. I hope that the big buyer is very revenge when Alabama unveils our doors next year. Perhaps Bohn removes the imbalance in out programs.
Looking forward to more help.
For all high school, college and professional team leaders in all sports (basketball, basketball, football, soccer, rugby and whatever is left), if you need a head coach who knows all, hire Bill Plaschke. He all knows. Ask him.
We have not forgotten UCLA
Hmm … 38,000 people at the Rose Bowl for the UCLA-Cal game. Another way: 54,000 empty seats. Just think, and the Bears moving to Stadium SoFi next season, Dignity Health Stadium will be available. Bruins could fill these 27,000 seats for each game… and it's right down the 405. Imagine the “8 clap” excitement at that cozy stadium. Carson, the town of Mighty Bruins football!
Chip Kelly says it's excited? If I am Kelly's Chip and the second season has been lost around and I'm getting $ 23.3 million over five years with added benefits, and my job is now safe, and my defense coordinator is likely to take the heat with for this season. performance and I can't coax another loss of shame for at least another nine months and I'm preparing to welcome other battles of talented recruits, as I might be excited!

Chip Kelly says he is not worried about the attitude of his team, but the reality. There is a real sense through the senses: I see an unorganized team on the field; I hear catalysts from the stands; I smell a grilled ribeye from maturing tailgaters; I feel my obstacle is getting worse in the setting; and I taste the bill when I think of another two years of this chutzpah machine.
There will be fewer people attending the UCLA game at the Rose Bowl as the UCLA team is below par, and the UCLA-Cal game has no worthwhile results, but attendance at many college football matches will be low as long as day depends on TV and time of games.
In the old days, when the audience in college was a spectator sport rather than a television show, games were held on Saturday evenings at 1 or 2 pm. I was attending these UCLA games so in Choliseum and later at the Bowl Rose and win or lose, I enjoyed them all. Ask me to drive to Pasadena late Saturday night, not to mention Friday night, to go home at 10:30 or 11:00 p.m. – not a chance.

The headline was a smart and funny way (“A variable force that performs a movable object”) to describe the conflict not directly to UCLA-Cal titanic.
You are keeping up a nice tradition of literacy and humor, and fostering a mature perspective on the often polluted and boring college sports and “student athletes” who play and are over-emphasized. I thank him.

Nothing new here
“A new inflammatory rule goes against everything that college football stands for” that is your own part of the Houston University football strategy.
College sports have always been away from what they are supposed to be? Graduate students play varsity due to technical technique. Everyone prefers to pay players and college teams as mini league licenses for the benefits. Any-and-done is okay. Trainers pay a huge salary. And cheating, of course.
Teams are loading with foreign recruits, not only the UCLA basketball team, but small sports like golf teams: three are the maximum and three. College sports should stand for participating students, not alumni talking to someone who is paid to come here and to function.
What surprises you?
River Hall is a green for the Hall of Fame. Good attendance is the key criterion, right?
I strongly believe that San Diego-Los Angeles Bears should move to Blythe instead of Inglewood.
The club has the line, the receivers and the back, but Old Man Rivers have stopped. Simply lose too much loss
Where is the barrier?
Perhaps the reason is that a few black baseball professional players are there that a few really good black baseball player.
Similar to Divisions colleges in which there is diversity as a king, the best players are available to sports teams. Almost all the Division I basketball teams are the most blacks because their football players are well-known. I hope if you look at the majority of baseball teams of his Division 1 you will see most of white people.
Professional sports do not take care of your color or nationality as long as you are the best available talent.
Unlike academics, where you can handle statistics to achieve diversity, there is nothing to demand when assessing talent in athletics. You are pretty good or if you do not.
Any Division I athletic program or professional sports team says that we need more blacks, white, Asians, Hispanics, males or females. They do not just want the best talent regardless of diversity.
When Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier, all the owners, players and managers were Anglo or Hispanic. There were no African Americans at all in sport at all. Now see who is the leader in charge of the amp. He's a black man and he's running the show!
Nowadays, there could be no African-American players on the Dodger roster, but the manager is black and this could really be more important. Good players of all ethnic groups emerge, but perhaps Dave Roberts's position in the MLB's power structure is more prominent.
Sorry due to loss of paradise High football team in the CIF Northern Championship game 30th November.
I learned and followed the team and its story in the ongoing series of articles made by Bill Plaschke about them. They are a great group of guys and coaches who had a great season, and nothing can bring them away. All winners, in my book.
In his search column on football and his role in the devastating death of Kevin Ellison, Dylan Hernandez is concerned with the aspect of American life that could be the last death of the game as it was at present. “The locals are fighting violence, as long as that violence is not directed at us,” Hernandez said and few people argue.
Would it add to the violence that is directed at those we love. One person feels that fewer mothers and fathers allow, because of what is now known about the risks inherent in the game, for their adolescents playing football. When that is dry, it's a game!
City of Angels
It is beyond its prime. … He lost his hunger for competitions. He chose L.A. for biz not basketball show. . .
Everything I said about LeBron James, I return.
He is very happy with a player, and I am glad that Laker it!
It is a happy holiday for the Lakers! There is no complaint or crying while they are coasting along a game to win! Did Laker fans forget something? Think of the Pelinka Rob dehydrated? I'm sure it's the person who implemented this current roster! Mr Pelinka is very quiet recently; reminds me of Jerry West when he creates a monster and sits quietly back in the shadows.
By the way, now Magic Johnson is free to mentor Ben Simmons! Everyone wins! Ho! Ho! Ho!
