USC Trojans football!!!!!!!!!!

“USC Trojans football”!!!

 

The USC Trojans football program, established in 1888, is a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I FBS and the Pacific-10 Conference (Pac-10). The Trojans have been a football powerhouse throughout NCAA history and claim 11 national championships[1]. In recent years, USC has consistently ranked in the top 5 of the final BCS and AP Polls.

                              

 2005

The 2005 regular season witnessed a resuscitation of the rivalry with Notre Dame, after a last second play in which senior quarterback Matt Leinart scored the winning touchdown with help from a controversial push from behind by running back Reggie Bush, nicknamed the “Bush Push“. The year climaxed with a 66–19 USC defeat of cross-town rival UCLA. Running back Reggie Bush finished his stellar year by winning the Heisman Trophy (later returned by USC considering Bush was ineligible), while Leinart finished third in the Heisman voting. Several other players also earned accolades, being named All-Americans (AP, Football Coaches, Football Writers, Walter Camp, ESPN.com, SI.com, CBS Sportsline.com, Rivals.com, Collegefootballnews.com). These include QB Matt Leinart, RB Reggie Bush, RB LenDale White, S Darnell Bing, OT Taitusi Lutui, OT Sam Baker, WR Dwayne Jarrett, C Ryan Kalil, OG Fred Matua, and DE Lawrence Jackson. Additionally, OL Winston Justice did well enough to forgo his senior year and enter the NFL draft. The regular season ended with two clear cut contenders facing off in the Rose Bowl to decide the national championship. Both USC and Texas were 12–0 entering the game, with USC the slight favorite.USC lost to Texas 41–38.

 

2006

For the 2006 football season, USC tried to rebuild its strength following the loss of offensive stalwarts Leinart, Bush, and White, defensive leader Bing, and offensive linemen Matua, Justice, and Lutui. The Trojans developed their offense using unproven QB John David Booty and returning star receivers Dwayne Jarrett and Steve Smith along with second-year wide-out Patrick Turner. Mark Sanchez, the highly-touted recruit from the class of 2005 (Mission Viejo High School, CA) was widely viewed as a dark horse to win the starting job from Booty, although Booty was named the starter at the end of fall training camp. The starting tailback position was initially a battle between returning players Chauncey Washington and Desmond Reed (both recovering from injuries) and heralded recruits Stafon Johnson (Dorsey High School in Los Angeles), C.J. Gable, Allen Bradford and Emmanuel Moody.

2007

In July 2007, ESPN.com named USC its #1 team of the decade for the period between 1996 and 2006, citing the Trojans’ renaissance and dominance under Coach Carroll.The 2007 Trojans were the presumptive #1 pick before the season. However they lost two games, including a major upset to 41-point underdog Stanford, and they did not get into the National Championship game. However, the Trojans did win their sixth conference championship and defeated Illinois in the 2008 Rose Bowl Game.

                                                                                                                                                                                                2008

After beating Penn State in the Rose Bowl, USC finished the season 12–1, and ranked #2 in the Coaches’ Poll and #3 in the AP Poll. The 2008 season culminated in USC’s seventh straight Pac-10 Championship, seventh straight BCS bowl appearance and seventh straight finish in the top 4 of the AP Poll. This also marked seven consecutive seasons where USC has not lost a game by more than 7 points. Their only loss was on the road against Oregon State, which was mentioned in the preseason as a possible upset.

NFL HISTORY

        

The National Football League (NFL) is the highest level of professional American football. It was formed by eleven teams in 1920 as the American Professional Football Association, with the league changing its name to the National Football League in 1922. The league currently consists of thirty-two teams from the United States. The league is divided evenly into two conferences — the American Football Conference (AFC) and National Football Conference (NFC), and each conference has four divisions that have four teams each. The NFL is organized as an unincorporated association of its 32 teams.The NFL is by far the most attended domestic sports league in the world by average attendance per game, with 67,509 fans per game in the latest regular season (2009).

The regular season is a seventeen-week schedule during which each team plays sixteen games and has one bye week. The season currently starts on the Thursday night in the first full week of September (the Thursday after Labor Day) and runs weekly to late December or early January. At the end of each regular season, six teams from each conference play in theNFL playoffs, a twelve-team single-elimination tournament that culminates with the championship game, known as theSuper Bowl. This game is held at a pre-selected site which is                                                                                           usually a city that hosts an NFL team.

In 1920 representatives of several professional American football leagues and independent teams founded the American Professional Football Conference, soon renamed the National Football League. The first officialchampionship game was held in 1933. By 1958, when that season’s NFL championship game became known as “The Greatest Game Ever Played”, the NFL was on its way to becoming one of the most popular sports leagues in the United States. The merger with the American Football League, agreed to in 1966 and completed in 1970, greatly expanded the league and created the Super Bowl, which has become the most-watched annual sporting event in the United States.


The NFL consists of thirty-two clubs. Each club is allowed a maximum of fifty-three players on their roster, but they may only dress forty-five to play each week during the regular season. Unlike Major League BaseballMajor League Soccer, the National Basketball Association and the National Hockey League, the league has no full-time teams in Canada, although the Buffalo Bills play one game per year in Toronto. Most teams are in the eastern half of the United States; seventeen teams are in the Eastern Time Zone and nine others in the Central Time Zone.

Most major metropolitan areas in the United States have an NFL franchise, although Los Angeles, the second-largest metropolitan area in the country, has not hosted an NFL team since 1994

Jeremiah Masoli

        Oregon Ducks 

2008

Masoli transferred from CCSF to the University of Oregon in 2008. In 2008 for the Ducks, Masoli emerged from the 3rd string quarterback to starter as injuries plagued the depth chart. He threw for 13 touchdowns and 5 interceptions, while also rushing for 10 touchdowns.[2] His 714 rushing yards in 2008 set an Oregon record for quarterbacks. Masoli led the team to a 42-31 victory against Oklahoma State in the 2008 Holiday Bowl.[3][4]

2009

Masoli was named to the Davey O’Brien Award watch list for the 2009 college football season.[5] Masoli was College Football Performance Awards National Performer of the Week (vs. Arizona) and one of four Ducks included on the College Football Performance Awards in their midseason trophy list.[6] He also appeared on the cover of the August 2009 issue of Sports Illustrated, along with center Jordan Holmes.

In October 2009, Masoli helped lead the Ducks to an upset over the then #5 USC Trojans with 222 passing yards, 164 rushing yards and two touchdowns.[9]

Masoli helped the Ducks win the Pac-10 Championship, advancing them to the Rose Bowl where they lost to the Ohio State Buckeyes 26-17. Masoli was 9/20 passing with 81 yards and an interception, while rushing for 9 yards and a touchdown.[10][11]

For the season, he completed 177 of 305 passes for 2,147 yards and 15 touchdowns, and ran for 13 scores. His 2,815 yards of total offense stands eighth on the school’s single-season list.

2010

Masoli was suspended for the entire 2010 season after pleading guilty to a felony burglary charge. Prior to his being kicked off the team, he would have been eligible to play in the 2011 season had he satisfied the requirements set forth by Oregon head coach Chip Kelly. On June 9, Masoli was dismissed from the team after a citation for marijuana possession.On June 16, 2010, Masoli pleaded guilty to marijuana possession and a traffic citation 

USA Today, The Commercial Appeal, and other media outlets reported on July 25, 2010 that Masoli had sent his scholarship release papers to a number of schools, notably Ole Miss. The report included Ole Miss rival Mississippi State, Hawaii, UNLV, Louisiana Tech, and Syracuse. Masoli would presumably be eligible to play in the 2010 season after completing his undergraduate degree at Oregon; he would need to enroll in graduate study not currently offered at Oregon in order to be eligible at the next institution

O J

 

                   “O. J. Simpson”

    “O. J.” Simpson (born July 9, 1947), nicknamed “The Juice”, is a retiredAmerican football player, football broadcaster, spokesman, actor, and convicted felon.

Originally attaining a public profile in sports as a running back at the collegiate and professional levels, Simpson was the first NFL player to rush for more than 2,000 yards in a season, a mark he set during the 1973 season. While five other players have passed the 2,000 rush yard mark he stands alone as the only player to ever rush for more than 2,000 yards in a 14-game season (the NFL changed to a 16-game season in 1978). He also holds the record for the single season yards-per-game average which stands at 143.1 ypg. Simpson was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1985.

In 1995, Simpson was acquitted of the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman after a lengthy, internationally publicized criminal trial — the People v. Simpson. A 1997 judgment against Simpson for their wrongful deaths was awarded in civil court in a case which he did not actively defend, but to date he has paid little of the $33.5 million judgment.[1] His book, If I Did It (2006), related to the murders, purports to be a first-person fictional account of the murder had he actually committed it, was withdrawn by the publisher just before its release. The book was later released by the Goldman family.

In September 2007, Simpson was arrested[3] in Las Vegas, Nevada, and charged with numerous felonies, including armed robbery and kidnapping. A jury found Simpson guilty of all charges on October 3, 2008;[4][5] and he was sentenced on December 5 to at least nine years in prison.[6] He is currently serving his sentence at the Lovelock Correctional Centerin Lovelock, Nevada

University of Southern California

Simpson gained an athletic scholarship to the University of Southern California where he played running back in 1967 and 1968. Simpson led the nation in rushing in 1967 when he ran for 1,451 yards and scored 11 touchdowns. He also led the nation in rushing the next year with 355 carries for 1,709 yards.

In 1967, he starred in the 1967 USC vs. UCLA football game and was a Heisman Trophy candidate as a junior, but he did not win the award. His 64 yard touchdown run in the 4th quarter tied the game, with the PAT the margin of victory. This was the biggest play in what is regarded as one of the greatest football games of the 20th century

NFL

The October 27, 1968 regular-season NFL game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Pittsburgh Steelers was dubbed the “O.J. Bowl“, as it was thought the loser would be awarded the first pick in the 1969 NFL Draft and thereby secure Simpson for the following season. The Steelers won 6–3 (on 2 field goals by Booth Lusteg), however, neither team captured the first draft pick.

Simpson was drafted by the AFL‘s Buffalo Bills, who got first pick in the 1969 draft after finishing 1–12–1 in 1968. Early in his NFLcareer, Simpson struggled on poor Buffalo teams, averaging only 622 yards per season for his first three
