Forgot about 'Tre?

My biggest take away besides the offensive line's abysmal play, was that Dontre Wilson looked like a completely different player. Not only improved, but I thought he looked like the best uninjured player on this team. Other than the early drop, he was electric. 166 total yards on 13 touches (12.7 avg), and the best avg running the ball at 7.2 ypc. I'd really like to see him get MORE touches

DJ,

I read these every morning, but as we get so close to the season. This skully was great, you are in midseason form. Flame-emojis all around

I may be in the minority here but I've always believed tressel did what most people would do. He was given the tip about a federal investigation, and was told something to the effect of that the info was confidential. It seemed to me he was trying to keep his kids out of a seedy situation, and handle it with them internally while not compromising said investigation. Doesn't the confidentiality of a federal investigation trump the rules of a "non-profit" organization?

Obviously doing this was self-serving for the interest of the football team. But I always thought the confidential nature of the case was the bigger reason for staying quiet with the knowledge of it. I felt the transcripts from tressel's testimony in the NCAA investigation stated this. Once it came into the public sphere, and after the NCAA granted sugar bowl eligibility it felt to me like "ok, lets talk about this now".

I may be totally off-base here, but this factor of it has always driven me a bit crazy

Can we make a rule to never put an eminem-produced beat (excluding renegade) on this site again? My dog looks at me funny when my ears start bleeding before 9am..

Apparently I've been here since the beginning, I remember seeing your guys little stickers show up at Eddie George's and thinking "wow these guys are getting kind of legit" (circa 2007[Still have the sticker too!]). You guys do a wonderful job and although Im more of a voyeur than regular commentator, 11W IS my morning newspaper and I refuse to start a day without getting up to date. Keep up the great work, you're in a league of your own.

Im probably one of the biggest USC-haters, but Pat Haden is probably the most qualified person to be a part of this process. He's been involved just about every part of the game and is a brilliant human being.

as a native angeleno just wanted to drop a few other nuggets

-if you want a Really good steak dinner in an under the radar spot Taylors in K-town is so much bang for your buck

-also adjacent downtown for those looking to shop in a non-rodeo dr. budget: theres the american apparell factory about 3 miles from staples (on alameda) they have a flea market that everything is about 80% off retail prices. not to mention the nearby fashion district and jewely district where you can find similar discounts

- if your staying in hollywood or mid-city/fairfax area the farmers market/grove is a great spot for food/celeb spotting/shopping

-if your going to venice traffic is about 100 times worse on sundays and parking rates will reflect that

TRAFFIC PATTERNS: heres a big secret, everything flows from east to west in the mornings and opposite in afternoons, if you can plan your travel around that you will spend significantly less time in traffic. the 405 always sucks. 

Also for the younger crowd looking to party there are a few underground warehouse parties this weekend, get at me on twitter if your looking for that life..

Even though my profile doesnt reflect it, I started reading 11w I want to say 2006-2007 I remember you guys had stickers in eddie george's and I was worried you guys were getting to big... You've done a wonderful job maintaining that original intimacy while gaining more features/content. I cant start my day without 11w.

You guys do a wonderful job.

Now, can we get a dedicated app already?
