Journalist Now Embedded With the Trojans
USC — to the best of our knowledge — is the first team to print its 2006 poster schedule, and the Trojans have selected "Encore" as their theme. So this kicks off our campaign to get everybody involved. The Wiz would like fans to send images of poster schedules from other teams. The email address is in this link. We promise to proudly display as many as possible. And since we mentioned USC, an interesting story was reported this week. Coach Pete Carroll had a campus tryout earlier this month, and budding journalist Ben Malcolmson decided to take the George Plimpton route and attend the event with the sole intent of chronicling his experience for the Daily Trojan, USC's student newspaper. Twenty-eight students tried out, and two days later Malcolmson learned he was one of only nine to make the team. "I have covered the team for three years," he wrote. "Now I'm part of it."
