USC Morning Buzz: Upon Further Review, Schedule Even Worse — The prime rebuttal to the lousy home games I've mentioned the past two days is USC's tradition for also playing marquee nonconference opponents. But I did not realize the USC-Tennessee series planned for 2021-22 was canceled. The teams reached a verbal agreement back in 2010 but no contract ever got signed and earlier this year Tennessee announced a home-and-home series with Pitt for 2021-22.

USC Morning Buzz: All Hail The Original George Tirebiter — Here is the original George Tirebiter, in full glory and living color, from the 1947 football season. I've never seen him in color before and on Oct. 22, 1947, a 30-car parade was held to crown him USC's official mascot. This is not the cute cuddly Tirebiter that followed and became the subject of card stunts in 1952.

Colin Cowherd Coming To L.A. — Radio host Colin Cowherd is leaving ESPN and expected to switch to Fox Sports, which means a move to Los Angeles. That's big news for USC. Cowherd stubbornly defended Lane Kiffin for years and remains supportive of the football program. When Kiffin got hired at USC, he asked Cowherd's show for a weekly spot.

USC Morning Buzz: Thoughts On Coliseum Naming Rights Deal — I had not intended to write more about this but then I saw some overzealous analysis that overstated what it means for USC to sell the naming rights to the Coliseum. First, this is not even a new idea. The Coliseum hired Wasserman Media Group in 2008 to sell the naming rights and predicted making $6-8 million per year.
