3 Kelly Oubre Jr. has agreed to a two-year, $30 million deal to stay with the Phoenix Suns.

    A win over USC would be a nice way for Reyna to break in as the Bulldogs’ starting quarterback!

    Former Downey/Pasadena QB George Reyna may get the start against SC?
    From T. Peterson: He’s number one on the depth chart, yes.

    @ Truth: U.C. Davis might actually have a chance against USC if the Aggies can field one of their better teams of late. Davis has had a highly competitive football program in NCAA Divisions II and I-AA.
    And, the Trojans had better not fall asleep against Fresno State, which typically features a good quarterback.

    $C does not play in the SEC and has also not played for a national championship in over 10 years. $C is “supposed” to be the flagship “powerhouse” program on the west coast!!! Not anymore!!! Would love to hear Peterson’s thoughts??? #BurnTroy…Burn!!! #TrollFire

    Peterson, did you attend a university? If so, please share.
    From T. Peterson: Some JC but that’s about it. I never attended a University and don’t have a college degree. Started working full time right out of High School and just never stopped.
