USC vs. Oregon: Matt Barkley’s MMA-inspired, trash-talking tweet about Oregon from late Saturday night/early Sunday morning? Deleted. Meanwhile, in the Northwest, Chip Kelly got his Ducks ready for their toughest road test the rest of the season with video of Ward-Gatti (which will be a must-see movie pretty soon.) Then, Mickey Ward walked in the room. “He talked to Kelly’s team about taking life round-by-round and about his preparation and training. There was awe in the room, especially from a former New England Golden Gloves heavyweight novice champion, defensive line coach Jerry Azzinaro.” We like the Trojans Saturday night. And not just because the public loves the Ducks. [Oregonian]
