USC football mailbag: Have the Trojans’ practices changed?

Spring football practice is officially in swing at USC. The Trojans held their first workout Tuesday and were to return to Howard Jones Field on Thursday afternoon. There is no shortage of storylines, from Clay Helton recasting himself as a disciplinarian, to intrigue surrounding new offensive coordinator Graham Harrell and a possible quarterback competition. The next month should be interesting. If you’d like to ask a question for a future mailbag, send them along to [email protected] or by Twi...

Five storylines for USC football entering spring practice

Clay Helton kept his chin up. It was during a news conference last month at USC’s McKay Center when Helton spoke to reporters about the series of offseason drama surrounding the Trojans’ program. The winter months included coaching staff changes, high-profile transfers and defected recruits. The fallout came after the Trojans finished 5-7 last fall, their first losing season in nearly two decades. “I don’t care where I’ve been in 25 years, you’re going to have coaching changes, you’re going to h...

Graham Harrell tasked with reviving USC offense with some ‘Air Raid’ flair

The North Texas football team had lost 11 times in 12 tries in 2015, marred by a futile offense that had trouble scoring points. The only school the Mean Green beat just recently started a football program. The following January, returning members of the shabby squad assembled in a meeting room to greet an LDN-L-USC HARRELL-0304overhauled coaching staff. A clean-shaven 30-year-old, who might’ve otherwise been mistaken for a new graduate transfer, entered. Graham Harrell wasn’t far removed from h...

Whicker: New offensive boss Graham Harrell hopes to bring USC up to speed

LOS ANGELES — Graham Harrell talks fast, thinks fast, moves up fast. The offense he brings to USC is based on little analysis, at least after the ball is snapped, and zero paralysis. Call it a spread, the Air Raid, the Run and Shoot or the Clay-Mation if you like. The Trojans will arrive in the 2010s this fall, which puts them 40 years ahead of much of their fanbase. Harrell quarterbacked the Air Raid at Texas Tech for three years (2006-08) and produced numbers not previously seen. He still hold...

Art and Fear (the Ceramics Lesson)

A plug for an old fave, Bayles' and Orland's Art & Fear. The famous anecdote from Art & Fear about the ceramics class: The ceramics teacher announced on opening day that he was dividing the class into two groups.

His procedure was simple: on the final day of class he would bring in his bathroom scales and weigh the work of the "quantity"...

The Self-Domestication of Humans

In an essay adapted from his forthcoming book, The Goodness Paradox: The Strange Relationship Between Virtue and Violence in Human Evolution, anthropologist Richard Wrangham says that before humans domesticated dogs, cows, and pigs, we domesticated ourselves. No other mammal has the brainpower to organize capital punishment. When language became sufficiently sophisticated, our ancestors’ ability to conspire led not only to a more peaceful species but also to a new kind of hierarchy. No longer w...

7 Tattoo Trends You're About To See Everywhere In 2019

Long before Dr. Woo, JonBoy, and their A-list clientele made dainty white dots and tiny crosses mainstream news, tattoos were already deeply ingrained in the fabric of history, discovered on the bodies of Egyptian mummies and an Austrian-Italian iceman now known as Ötzi. In those times, thousands of years ago, tattooing was thought to be used therapeutically, a kind of early form of acupuncture; today, it's much more popular for creating decorative body art.Still, Ötzi and his pre-Common Era co...

The future is bright for Jack Leach, England’s rising cult hero

Just two years ago, Leach was overlooked by England when an opening was on the offing in India, mainly as a result of concerns about the legality of his action. Leach has overcome adversity at every turn but, at the age of 27, will head out to the West Indies in the New Year as England’s first-choice second spinner – and not too far off topping the bill. The Taunton-born left-armer would baulk at the suggestion that he could oust Moeen Ali as England’s number one by the time next summer’s Ashes ...

Why Jack Leach is not ‘better’ than Adil Rashid

(You might also feel moved to make an angry comment afterwards, so maybe factor that time in too). We’d argue that what might at first look like an overlong examination of a very specific selection dilemma actually leads to far more interesting, broader questions about how teams are selected an...

UCLA football mailbag: How does 2018 set the Bruins up for the future?

The first year of Chip Kelly is done at UCLA. The Bruins have only three wins to show for it. The 3-9 record sounds disappointing after so much preseason hype with Kelly’s hire, but players remained optimistic after last Saturday’s season-ending loss to Stanford. Now begins the long nine-month wait to see if that optimism will be rewarded with better results next year. Thanks for all your questions for this year’s mailbags. For the last time in 2018, let’s get to the A’s to your Q’s: DM question...

England seal historic series whitewash in Sri Lanka, winning final Test by 42 runs

England have sealed a historic series whitewash in Sri Lanka, winning the final Test by 42 runs despite a late scare as the hosts' tail wagged.

UCLA football mailbag: What has to happen for the Bruins to become playoff contenders?

In three weeks, UCLA went from one of the last winless FBS teams in the country to unexpected contenders in a crowded Pac-12 South race to the brink of its third straight losing season. It’s been a roller coaster season and there’s still a month left. Just one more loss in their last four games guarantees that the Bruins will be staying home for December, losing bowl eligibility and the accompanying 15 practices that could be beneficial for the young team.

Why losing the will to live can be deadly within three weeks

Losing the will to live is deadly, scientists believe, after finding people can die within three weeks simply because they have given up on life. A new review by Dr John Leach at the University of Portsmouth, is the first to widely study the condition known as ‘psychogenic death’ and define its five stages. Sometimes termed ‘give-up-itis’ it usually follows an emotional shock from which a person thinks there is no mental escape, which makes them dangerously apathetic about their own existence. I...
