    I have to admit I am a little disappointed that kickoff for the bRuins game is at 7:30. I no longer subscribe to any newspaper because I get my information off the web, however after a nice USC win I will purchase the day after game LA Times because I enjoy relishing Trojans victories reading about it with that paper and coffee in my hand. With a 7:30 start it is almost a certainty because the LA Times operates in the dark ages that the Sunday sports will only have a partial score edition, then the Monday edition will have a very abbreviated recap of the game.

    I subscribed to the Times for years. I only subscribe to the Sunday edition now as I need my SC fix. I know I can get off the web but I enjoy seeing the actual front page of the sports section when SC wins. Sunday only subscription is pretty cheap. I cancelled my full week sub as the Times is just a left wing rag.

    The good ol' days, of Jim Murray and John Hall writing for the LA Times. Those days were the best in descriptive sportswriting. Jim retired and John left for the OC Register, then the internet took over and papers are still trying to adapt.

    During their glory years (murray, hall, malamud etc) it was fun reading the sports section. but I canceled LA Time long ago. They kept giving me discounts ($1 a week) but finally canceled for good.

    Jim Murray made the Sports section very enjoyable.

    I stopped reading the (UC)LA Times when it was extremely obvious that their spotswriting staff had an overwhelmingly obvious Bruin bias to it.

    I hate 7:30 games unless I am there. Win or lose tomorrow night I'm probably gonna be too wound up to sleep.

    This is exactly the only time I will ever read the LA Slimes, no offense to Robyn Norwood, Murray Dwyer and other really good writers of the past. Nothing better than a satisfying cup of coffee Sunday morning after going over stats of a nice win.

    I also stopped the Times years ago. I do, however, miss the big colored photos of 5 or 6 Trojans gang tackling and pulverizing some poor runner to the ground. Or a classic photo of a SC back making a cut for a TD with arm muscles and calves bulging in the process. Those traditional cardinal and gold uni's, with the striped side pant legs, never take a bad photo.

    I went out this morning to get my Sunday paper to savor the USC beat down of the bRuins in print and just as I suspected when I picked up the LA Times to check the sports section there was only a partial account of the game because of the 7:30 start. I put the Times down and out of curiosity picked up the Ventura County Star and lo and behold their sports section had the final score and total game recap. The Times is supposed to be the big time paper and is stuck in the past with their go to press deadlines, yet a small paper such as The Star manages to provided full coverage with a final score. What gives?
