Anthony Lynn, Michael Badgley make improvements for Chargers special teams

INGLEWOOD — Chargers safety Rayshawn Jenkins said he had no doubts about kicker Michael Badgley before he walked onto the field Sunday with three seconds left in regulation in a tie game against the Atlanta Falcons. Jenkins didn’t think about Badgley’s seven missed field goals this season. To him, Badgley hadn’t changed from their days together at the University of Miami. “I seen it all through college,” Jenkins said about Badgley’s swagger. “He’s just a poised guy. Everyone is going to have a r...

Whicker: For Gilberto Ramirez, a 40-0 record isn’t enough

Gilberto Ramirez, and the situation he’s in, is not the only thing wrong with boxing. That’s a list that wouldn’t fit into a Harvard syllabus. Ramirez, in fact, has done nothing wrong at all.

There’s Jimmy Barry, Floyd Mayweather, Joe Calzaghe, Rocky Mariano and Ricardo Lopez, and Lopez was 51-0-1. A few others have started ...

USC in precarious spot with Pac-12 title game contingencies

USC head coach Clay Helton loves to preach to his players about staying focused on the task at hand. Don’t worry about what you can’t control, he likes to say, and don’t look too far into the future. The thing is, this week USC can’t afford that luxury. The 13th-ranked Trojans (5-0) are scheduled to play Washington (3-1) on Friday in the Pac-12 championship game. USC will play host at the Coliseum, a fitting reward for the only team in the conference to finish with an undefeated record. If only ...
