USC football is all there is to say. AP places USC at the #1 spot for this season. Oh yea, Matt Barkley has plans to get that National Title for the Trojans capping off an interesting 4 years at SC.

I wouldn't mind an LA team, so don't get me wrong there, it is just that the Trojans have such a following here in the LA area. Even in Oxnard and Ventura we have a strong following of USC fans. (Yes we also have fans of the Bruins, even in the Oxnard Ventura area, which kind of enforces the point of why the NFL just has an uphill battle to gain a following for a local team.) Saying that, I did notice when the Cowboys were in town (Oxnard training camp) that the parking lot was full and many walked a few miles from other parts just to take part in the fun of training camp. Still, it is hard to compete with a team like USC.

I hope this spurs some fun banter with any of you UCLA fans. On a side note:

We had a Doctor that parked in a no parking zone yesterday, in a spot that is used by ambulance drivers so that they can safely back up. The Doctor is a UCLA Alum and had a UCLA sticker on his BMW along with a UCLA License plate frame. I left a note on his window because he parked in the no parking zone.

Here is what I put in the note:

"I hear that at USC in order to graduate you need to be able to read. I bet that a USC grad would be able to read a sign that says no parking."

Yes, USC folks are SOOO good at driving. They never rip around the city speeding, cutting in and out of lanes, and parking wherever they please.

College Football is boring for me, I prefer the NFL, but there will probably be people living on the Moon before the NFL returns to L.A.

We need an NFL team. The 2nd largest city in the U.S. should definately have a team. I did not go to USC or UCLA and wath their football games only during sports highlights on the news.

I love college football but we definitely need an NFL team. We are a city that should definitely have every top sport.

The area needs an NFL team, but no one but the billionaire owner ought to pay a dime for the stadium. No bonds, no sweetheart land or tax deals, it is just another business.

You guys think you can get an NFL team by next Sunday, opening day? I'd love for my team to get over there and kick the ass of LA's NFL team
