Here is an interesting tidbit that I have heard regarding next years game with USC: We will be wearing our powder blue uniforms (our regular home uniforms) when we visit the Coliseum.
This is a "throwback" to the old days when both teams would wear their home uniforms for this game, no matter where they played. For anyone that remembers what a spectacle it was to see the powder blue Bruins line up against the cardinal red and gold Trojans you can imagine just how awesome this is going to be. Just another wrinkle that adds so much pageantry and makes this cross-town rivalry so sacred and special.
Of course, this will violate some stupid NCAA rule, and when we do come out with our powder blues the penalty will be a loss of a timeout. I understand that KD was the major instigator to get this pact with SC going, and PC will oblige by calling a timeout after the kickoff to even things out. Of course KD (if he is still around ;) ) will return the favor when the game comes back to the RB in 2 years.
If this does play out, I give major kudos to both KD and PC to restoring a great tradition in this great rivalry.
