USC: Don't Put His Finger On It

Yes, John David Booty fractured a finger in his throwing hand during the second quarter of Saturday's "what just happened?" loss to Stanford, but no, the fracture was not to blame for his 24-of-40, four-interception performance.

Unfortunately, he won't get his wish. Starting safety Bo McNally could miss the Cardinal's opening game against UCLA after breaking a bone in his hand.
