On Monday, it was announced that Pat Haden, USC’s Athletic Director, would hire Steve Sarkisian as the next Trojan head coach. Ed Orgeron then turned in his resignation. Here’s a small collection of the real-time reaction and Twitter commentary
The 2013 season ended in Palo Alto on Saturday with a 27-20 defeat. Here’s a collection of the real-time Twitter reaction and commentary.
If you’re still at work, this is your holiday shut-down notice.
Here are your @andrewwinn stats for this week’s #HLSrecap – 120 tweets from 60+ contributors, with 6 first-timers making the cut this week. We now have over 415 unique contributors to at least one #HLSrecap this year.
As you know, each week we present the following highly-coveted (and yet totally arbitrary) accolades:
- Brick Helmet Stickers
- #HLSrecap MVP
- #HLSrecap Top 25
The final home game of the 2013 campaign ended in a 23-13 victory amid snow flurries. The Irish never trailed, but tensions ran high (of course they did). Here’s a collection of the real-time Twitter reaction and commentary.
Bye Week? More like: bye, productivity.
I’m not lying when I say we all owe @andrewwinn a round — you guys liked the 2013 #HLSrecap Top 25 stats he put together so he volunteered to do the same for the ENTIRE 2012 SEASON. He is a legend in his own time; now you can get angry at me (12 months after the fact) for not quoting you more often — just keep in mind that your inclusion/exclusion is why we went undefeated last year.
You’ll recall I composed a highly-unscientific Preseason #HLSrecap Top 25 before the 2013 season began. It turns out that 2012 performance had little/no bearing on that (just like the real college football polls amirite?) So I’ll link to the complete 2012 appendix table, and given you the relevant game-by-game stats and season summary below.
