SC and UCLA show off Love'n Mayo

The football wins are nice, they are. It’s the football losses that really matter though. I mean honestly I expect the Trojans to beat UCLA in Football. So when it happens, that’s not a special day, it’s a Saturday. Now when Pete Carroll and the boys manage to lose the UCLA that is devastating, because it is so unexpected.
I imagine that is how the UCLA faithful are feeling right about now. I mean they had to expect that they were going to win. If you’d have a told the Freshman super hero OJ Mayo would be scoreless in the first period, I am sure they would have guaranteed it.Especially with the Trojans having to play at Pauley Pavillion. None of them would have predicted the 72-63 final score in the Trojans victory. The game actually was closer than the 9 point margin (I hate that expression but if you saw the game, you know what I mean).
As much as I would like to say that Mayo dominated the match up with Kevin Love. I’ve been anticipating this game since conference play started. It delivered a great game, for completely different reasons. Love and Mayo combined for one good game but Love was mostly first half and Mayo was all second half.
The game was taken over by rookie Davon Jefferson. After scoring a career high 25 points, he told reporters "My mom told me she had a dream -- we won and I played well," adding. "I didn't know the game was over 'til the game was over. That's how crazy this was."
UCLA head coach Ben Howland paid a compliment to his cross town rivals saying. "They outplayed us," Howland said. "They're a team that will be in the NCAA tournament." That would be a rare occurrence for the Trojans

Baltimore Ravens Name New Head Coach

The Baltimore Ravens have named a successor to Brian Billick. Billick was terminated after going 5-11. It wasn’t that record on it’s own that did it. It didn’t help that he posted that record following a 13-3 season that took them into the playoffs, where they lost to eventual superbowl champion Colts. The real deal breaker for Billick was the fact his vaunted defense was the only team to surrender a loss to the 1-15 Miami Dolphins.
The Ravens announced Friday that John Harbuagh will be the teams new head coach. The biggest issue that they have is that the team he is taking over doesn’t have enough offense to beat USC-as his brother, Jim did with Stanford this season.
Adding addition difficulty to his job, is that he will most likely lose Rex Ryan, who he beat out for the job, as defensive coordinator. On a team where the defense has been the lone bright spot, this loss of continuity could be devastating. Especially considering the locker room leaders; Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, even first year Raven Willis Mcgaee had spoken out in favor of Ryan. All of a sudden Jason Garrett is looking smarter and smarter for taking that 3 mil in Dallas.
John Harbaugh was previously the defensive back and special teams coach for the Philadelphia Eagles. He asked head coach Andy Reid to move from special teams to defensive backs in order to get more consideration for a head coaching position. Careful what you ask for, John. You just might get it.

The Good News About the Miami Heat 12 Game Slide

As the Miami Heats rapid decline continues I sat down to review the situation and figure out a solution. Here is a post a put up previously

Gather round kids, I want to tell
you a story of a slick looking leader. Who took his young star point guard, a talented starting Shooter, as well as a PF, and SF, a few strong bench players he could occasionally rotate into that starting rotation in order to match up well , and one aging center who is still hanging on to prove he still has it. They had won before, they had dominated before, but now it was nearing the end. What would become of their final
run together, you ask? They had a strong season and made a small push into the
playoffs. Nice story right. Well look there is a sequel.
I want to tell you a story of a silver haired leader. Who took his young star point guard, a few talented starters, a few strong bench players he could occasionally rotate into that starting rotation in order to match up well, and one aging center who is still hanging on to prove he still has it. They had won before, in fact they had been champions before but now it was nearing the end. What would become of their final run together, you ask?
Lets wait to see. Riley seems to have infinite patience with aging centers. I do not see him pushing Shaq out, but the time is rapidly nearing when that Lakers trade is looking less and less foolish. Yes the Heat got their Championship and Kobe has
yet to see a ring since Shaq left but the whole argument at the time was that
Shaq wanted this long deal so he could hang on forever. Well how long is all
that weight going to hold Miami down, at least the Lakers are on the up swing,
Shaq and his contract still has the Heat moving the wrong direction and I think they are a year from hitting the bottom and that they will spend 2 more years there
before they turn it around.


In re-assessing this situation it has gotten both worse and better. Since the situation has continued to spiral towards terrible. Instead of at least leveling off at really bad. It is obviously worse.
This is actually the best thing that the Miami fans could hope for. If this were to become a tolerably bad situation, the Heat would continue to look at minor tweaks and band-aids in order to improve. At this point I think even Pat Riley would have to acknowledge this situation can only be solved with some High Explosive.
Look on the bright side, Heat fan your next game is against the knicks
