USC must be able to offer something other than money to pull Meyer out of retirement. The Trojans have burned through Lane Kiffin, Steve Sarkisian and perhaps Helton since Pete Carroll left. The administration is anything but steady right now. Maybe Meyer cures all that, but it’s more likely he opts to stay out of a head-to-head battle with Chip Kelly in a conference that doesn’t have as much weight as it used to. USC and Ohio State are historical rivals, too, even if that’s a big outdated.If you’re looking for a Big Ten coach that fits USC, then maybe take a look at Penn State’s James Franklin. He had to address those rumors last year. Maybe they swirl again in November if Helton is canned.Meyer retired from coaching following the 2018 season, citing health issues.The three-time national title-winning head coach is only 55, though, and many see him eventually returning to the sideline.Bender, however, doesn’t believe it’ll be at USC. Not next year, anyway.

The Chief Prelate said this when he met Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe who is on a visit to Kandy. Responding to this, Prime Minister Wickremesinghe noted that the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) is working well with the new Government. The Chief Prelate of the Asgiriya Chapter, the Venerable Galagama Attadassi Thera, has questioned the demand by the Chief Minister of the Northern Province C V Wigneswaran, that the army should be withdrawn from Jaffna.The Venerable Galagama Attadassi Thera said that the Government must be wise when responding to such demands and ensure that Sri Lanka remains united under one National flag. Wickremesinghe also noted that the issue of returning land held by the military in the North to the civilians is still an issue.However he said that land which the military does not require anymore since the war is over, is being returned to the rightful owners. (Colombo Gazette) He recalled that some TNA members had even attended the Independence Day celebrations this year and this shows that the TNA accepts Sri Lanka’s Independence Day and also the military.The Prime Minister said that while there maybe a few negative comments being made by some TNA members, in Parliament both the Government and the TNA have a good understanding.
