LOS ANGELES -- After reading about the latest civic jockeying between the top political representatives from Sacramento, the Coliseum Commission and the University of Southern California, it seems to me that the time has come for the university to consider building its own football stadium on campus and bidding adieu to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

And while they're at it, the Trojans should finally tell all the political participants to take their agendas and power plays and go find another game of goofiness. Before you outright dismiss this idea, consider some recent Los Angeles stadium history.
