USC facing a real irritating foe: jock itch

Los Angeles, the second-largest city in America, does not have a professional football team. Instead, they have USC, a team that's enjoyed remarkable success lately while racking up quite a celebrity following. But there is nothing glamorous about the jock itch problem that's spreading through the Trojan ranks.

"While dislocated kneecaps and high ankle sprains draw more attention, Coach Pete Carroll said he has never seen anything like the minor outbreak that caused key players to miss practice Wednesday.

As much as 25% of the team has been affected by the apparent run of
tinea cruris, kicker David Buehler estimated. The condition seems to have spread by way of new compression shorts, or tights, worn under their football pants."
The UCLA student body should have a field day with this one.
