The Peterson Principle: 2/27/2017

So Temple City isn’t folding its football program. Great news. By hiring an on campus teacher as the head coach the administration has at least shown that they are interested in creating some consistency and some interest in a program that desperately needs it.

The Peterson Principle: 6/13/2016

By Tim Peterson It’s a different game now. Boston’s Kevin McHale clothes lined the Lakers’ Kurt Rambis in the 1984 NBA Finals and all he received was a personal foul.

The Peterson Principle: 7/6/2015

By Tim Peterson I said it on draft day and I’ll say it again. The Lakers missed it when they passed on Jahlil Okafor. They drafted D’Angelo Russell not only because they liked his game but also with the thought that something else was coming – namely a big man.
