The USC baseball program announced its 2014 schedule this week.True grit · Junior infielder James Roberts was a key utility infielder for the Trojans in 2013, starting all of USC’s games at either second base, shortstop, or third base. Roberts was third on the team with a .320 batting average. – Joseph Chen | Daily TrojanThe 53-game slate starts on Feb. 14, when the Trojans will host Northwestern in a weekend set.Unlike in years past, when the Trojans have made at least one major nonconference road trip, USC will not leave Los Angeles until they start Pac-12 play at Oregon on March 14. Just three of their first 16 contests will occur outside the confines of Dedeaux Field, one of those being the annual Dodgertown Classic, which is scheduled to return after a year’s hiatus against defending national champion UCLA at Dodger Stadium.“We are excited about our schedule, which we think is extremely challenging,” USC coach Dan Hubbs said in a statement.USC will play 18 games against teams that made the postseason last year, something that Hubbs has hinted at being a legitimate goal for the Trojans this season. USC hasn’t played in a regional competition since 2005.Though the Trojans do not have a strong nonconference weekend test, their midweek games look as tough as ever. Two games against 2013 Super Regional host Cal State Fullerton highlight the slate. USC went 0-3 against the perennial powerhouse Fullerton Titans last year.But after opening the season with so many home games, the Trojans will hit the road for much of March. Starting with the March 9 contest with the Bruins at Dodger Stadium, USC plays just two of its next 10 matchups at home. Back-to-back conference road trips to Oregon and Stanford to open Pac-12 play make for a rough start for a team that went 10-20 in conference play last year.“Our hope is that we can get off to a strong start with an early home schedule before we get into conference play,” Hubbs said.Even with the mid-March road series, USC will still play 32 home games compared to just 20 on the road, plus the neutral-site game at Dodger Stadium to round out their 53-game set.
Representatives of the Federation and clubs of the BHT Premier League had the opportunity to discuss and exchange opinions on several topics related to the next competition season at a video conference, held today.After the discussions, the following attitudes stood out as the best. Namely, that most clubs are for the opportunity to play with up to 5 players of foreign nationals; most clubs are against the imposition of the obligation to play with one player under the age of 21, i.e. to be in the game all the time, but the representatives of FK Sarajevo and FK Mladost were for this obligation; cup final stage playing system: one-leg cup system, except for final matches; proposal that the summer transfer period lasts until 02.10.2020; increasing the number of substitutes in matches from 7 to 9 to be applied from the competition season 2021/22.Today’s conference was held in a working atmosphere, the clubs were well prepared, with clear and concise views on the topics that were on the agenda.
The Kootenay Thunder earned respect from more than a few colleges and university coached during the Starfire Fieldturf Showcase Soccer Tournament this past weekend in Seattle.The Thunder finished the tourney with a 1-1-2 record.“The Thunder team impressed many coaches and teams with one U.S. College coach stating he would take the whole squad if he had the budget,” said Kootenay head coach Dave Spendlove, who runs the regional squad out of the Soccer Quest Indoor facility in Nelson.The team, consisting of players from throughout the Kootenay region along with a handful of imports from Kamloops and playing in the top division, opened the tournament by playing to a scoreless draw against Seattle Legacy.According to Spendlove, “Kootenay outplayed their American opponents in all departments but could not get the ball in the net.”Kootenay kept its goal-scoring drought alive in a 0-0 tie against Semiahmoo Scorpions of White Rock.Saturday afternoon the Thunder, playing its best half in two years, edged the Sun City Strikers 2-1.Kelsey Martin of Kamloops gave Kootenay a 1-0 lead. Martin converted a rebound off a Kootenay corner kick, depositing the ball quickly into the net after Sun City failed to clear the zone.Sun City tied the game ten minutes into the second half.However, Nelson’s Andrea Stinson, a thorn in the side of most teams during the tournament, was hauled down inside the penalty area.Stinson calmly collected herself before converting the penalty kick.The only blemish on the weekend came Sunday during the rain when Kootenay lost 1-0 to MRFC of Portland, Ore.The only goal came when the game referee incorrectly gave an indirect free kick inside the Kootenay penalty area for a pass back to the keeper.MRFC quickly took the kick and beat Kootenay keeper Kat Garbula of Nelson.“The Referee apologized to the Thunder coaching staff at half time saying he did not really see what happened on the pass back incident but made a quick decision which later his line assistant told him was wrong,” Spendlove explained. “The incident cost the Thunder their only loss of the weekend but the Thunder should still have won the game again not taking their chances in front of goal.”The tournament attracted more than 40 scouts from various U.S. colleges.This is the second time Soccer Quest has taken a team to Seattle.Next tournament for Kootenay is the Vancouver Whitecaps Showcase event March 2012 in [email protected]

Through the bravery and efforts of people such as our good friend Drew Olanoff and the LIVESTRONG campaign, many social media users are much more aware of cancer and what this disease does to the body, mind, soul and community.Today, on World AIDS Day, we’d like to direct your attention to a few folks on the social web who are facing lives with HIV/AIDS and have made the same brave choice to share that experience with the rest of us. Read on for bits and pieces of their stories as well as feeds and lists that will keep their struggles and triumphs in your thoughts.Shawn Decker’s ShawnandGwenn.comDecker, who is a public speaker educator and advocate, blogs with girlfriend Gwenn Barringer about his own struggles with the virus and the challenges of being in an HIV-asymmetrical couple.With the success I’ve had keeping my numbers stable, I broached the topic of trying one week on, two weeks off meds…My reason for wanting a longer break has been absent-mindedness and lethargy… It’s especially frustrating on the days when things just aren’t clicking in the old nugget; like when I wake up feeling exhausted instead of rested or, in the middle of a shower, I wonder if I’ve already washed my hair or not. This tends to happen after a couple of days on meds.Steve Schalchlin’s Bonus RoundSchalchlin is one of the first HIV/AIDS bloggers, beginning his blog in 1996. Also a songwriter, Schalchlin put his story into music that his partner, playwright Jim Brochu, turned into The Last Session, a musical about a man’s struggle with AIDS.In Flash Forward, some of the characters are saying, “The future saved me.”I remember when I could see my future. And like this character, there was a certain comfort in knowing I had only just so much time and no more. I’m reminded of the old Chinese saying about how a child who dies has the longest life and an old man, the shortest. I know that that state of mind, of perfect freedom, is available. I know it is because it’s only a state of mind. Having gone there, I know what it feels and tastes and smells like. The question is whether I have to know when I’m gonna die to get there again.Kenn Chaplin’s My Journey With AIDSChaplin is a blogger who faces AIDS and is a survivor of childhood and adult trauma and adult-diagnosed mental illness.When diagnosed with HIV in 1989, and AIDS a few years later, it was suggested that I probably had a maximum of ten years to live. In fact I did nearly die of cryptospoidiosis which my doctor still talks about with a sense of marvel. It only seemed logical that I should accept the reality, with countless friends dying around me, and try to live into death with as much grace as I could muster. What I asserted was realism some friends took to be pessimism. One I think of in particular eventually drifted away as, it seems to me, she could neither tolerate what I believed to be reasonable thoughts of dying nor the fact that my health was, to her, no longer of imminent concern.James McLarty-Lopez’s Still ArrivingMcLarty-Lopez is a young, recently married gay man. His blog references medications he takes, side effects he experiences and his general feelings about this part of his life.Chad and I last night were discussing Justin’s passing. While very sad it was only a matter of time… I have been tired many times. I have been weak many times. However, through the times in the valley I have always said “I want to live.” In comparison, Justin too said he wanted to live, the difference being, he waited far too late to make that decision. He was only 24 and ravaged with HIV and AIDS defining illnesses. Who knows why Justin never really sought treatment? Perhaps the stigma of having HIV stopped him. Perhaps he just didn’t want to have to acknowledge the fact he had it. The only person who could have answered that is gone. Speculation will neither ease the pain nor bring him back. Now it’s about remembering his smile and moving on with the lesson of I want to live.To subscribe to a 12-blog feed of blogs from folks living with and writing about HIV/AIDS, click here.Also, we’ve put together a Twitter list of people who live with HIV/AIDS and people who medically treat, advocate for and work with HIV/AIDS sufferers.What better way to observe World AIDS Day than by actually reading the words and understanding the challenges of those who actually live with AIDS or HIV and are unashamed and courageous enough to share those stories with us?

BOULDER, CO – SEPTEMBER 29: The Bruins flag flies as the UCLA Bruins score a touchdown against the Colorado Buffaloes at Folsom Field on September 29, 2012 in Boulder, Colorado. UCLA defeated Colorado 42-14. (Photo by Doug Pensinger/Getty Images)Update: An interesting development from the Roquan Smith commitment:BREAKING: Despite announcing his commitment to #UCLA, 4* LB Roquan Smith tells me he has not reached final decision, has not signed LOI.— Jake Reuse (@ReuseRecruiting) February 4, 2015Earlier: UCLA may wind up being the winners of this year’s National Signing Day. Jim Mora’s program has already had a big day, landing top-rated recruits like Soso Jamabo over Texas and Chris Clark over Michigan, and now they’ve plucked a top five outside linebacker out of Georgia’s back yard. Roquan Smith was down to Georgia, Michigan, Texas A&M, and UCLA during his ceremony today. After having signs for the Wolverines and Aggies flipped over to indicate that the schools were out, Smith put on UCLA gloves under the table to reveal his commitment.Some UCLA fans may be concerned about the program’s ability to compete at the top of the Pac-12 without Brett Hundley, but Mora is proving that the Bruins should not be a flash in the pan.
