    Moody to the Gators?

    http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=2989999

    Former USC running back Emmanuel Moody said Friday that he has narrowed his transfer choices to Florida and North Carolina.

    Moody, the second-leading rusher on USC last season, had also considered Texas and Oklahoma State.

    Moody, who rushed for 459 yards and two touchdowns, averaging a team-high 5.8 yards per rush last season, left USC because of the school's depth at his position, citing a "business decision."

    At USC, running back Chauncey Washington's status for the season opener is in question because of a shoulder sprain. Sophomore Stafon Johnson and true freshman Joe McKnight are among those also competing for the job.


    Please let it be true.

    It's really a no-brainer for Moody.

    I let my Spiller dream go but Moody would definitely help fix out RB next year. I know Florida won last year despite a clear RB, but getting a true RB would give the offense another dimension and open up somethings in the passing game.

    And the rich get richer....

    Moody and Tebow in '08, good lord.

    That being said, McKnight is going to be a man-child eventually.

    Sources: USC won't let Holland transfer to Florida
    BY SCOTT WOLF Staff Writer
    Article Last Updated: 08/26/2007 10:25:10 PM PDT

    USC will not grant a release to former wide receiver Jamere Holland if he wants to transfer to Florida, according to sources.

    Holland, who left the team and was dismissed by USC coach Pete Carroll last week, listed Florida as one of five schools on his release form. But USC will not grant the release because Holland's former coach at Taft High of Woodland Hills, Troy Starr, works at Florida as director of football operations.

    Their close relationship apparently disturbs some within USC's athletic department who believe Starr and Holland probably communicated before Holland transferred.

    Holland could not be reached for comment. Carroll will not comment on Holland' s situation.

    "He's not here anymore," Carroll said.

    Holland's first choice is Oregon, but USC does not want him to transfer to another Pacific-10 Conference school. Holland could appeal to a university committee of non-athletic department employees, or he could transfer anywhere if he chose to pay the first year's tuition.

    USC does not object to a possible transfer of tailback Emmanuel Moody to Florida. Moody has listed North Carolina and Florida as his final two choices.

    Twin Towers: Although USC's starting

    receivers, Patrick Turner and David Ausberry, lack breakaway speed, cornerback Shareece Wright said they are the most difficult players to cover and not just because they are 6-feet-5.

    "The Twin Towers, they aren't the fastest, but they know how to beat you, they know how to be sneaky and push off," Wright said. "A speed guy usually depends on that and you know it going in. But they are big and strong and use that against you."

    Carroll said Turner could be a big-play receiver even if he is not known for his speed.

    "He can do the same things Mike Williams and Dwayne Jarrett did," Carroll said.

    USC vs. Idaho history: This week's game will not be the first meeting between the Trojans and Vandals.

    USC's first win at the Rose Bowl (or the Tournament of Roses' Stadium, as it was then known) was against Idaho. The Trojans defeated the Vandals 14-0, in front of 12,500 on Nov. 18, 1922. That was the first USC game against Idaho, as both joined the Pacific Coast Conference that year.

    It was a transition year for USC: The first season that would conclude with a Rose Bowl game and the last season that would feature a game at Pomona, USC's first real big rival.

    When USC played Idaho in 1925, the game drew 5,000. No USC game since then drew a smaller crowd.

    More history: USC's last game against Idaho was in 1929, the same year as its first game against UCLA. USC beat the Bruins 76-0 and Idaho 72-0. Both teams were off USC's schedule by 1931, with the Bruins not returning until 1936.

    Days off: Fullback Jody Adewale will not practice on Mondays or Tuesdays because he takes classes to obtain his master's degree in the afternoon. It might be one reason he was listed behind walk-on Adam Goodman on the depth chart as the backup to Stanley Havili.

    Home drought: This is the first time USC has opened the season at home since 2002.
