  5. Ohio State? Nothing to see there, USC fans!

    Ted Miller

    Breathe, USC fans, breathe. In fact, I'd suggest you ignore what happened Tuesday with Ohio State and its slap on the wrist from the NCAA for a massive systemic breakdown and a coverup by head coach, Jim Tressel. Yes, when you hold up the Ohio ...

  8. Ducks-Huskies: Nameless, faceless foes?

    Ted Miller

  12. Rant and rage, USC fans, then move on

    Ted Miller

    First things first. USC fans, you have a right to be outraged by the NCAA infractions appeals committee decision to uphold all penalties against the Trojans football program. The sanctions -- two-year bowl ban, a 30-scholarship reduction over thre...

  16. Ducks-Huskies: Just another game?

    Ted Miller

    Woody Hayes was a rivalry guy. When he was Ohio State's head coach, he wouldn't even say "Michigan." He said, "that team up north." He famously refused to fill up his gas tank while on a recruiting trip in Michigan. When Jim Tressel was hired to fill...
