Joey Kaufman is a newsdesk writer for SB Nation and an assistant editor for Pacific Takes -- SB Nation's Pac-12 blog. A native of Southern California, Joey grew up a fan of the Lakers, Dodgers and Trojans. He is currently a junior at USC, majoring in journalism, and hopes to graduate -- barring some epic collapse -- by 2013. He also writes for the Daily Trojan, the university's student-run newspaper, and has covered USC football since 2010, when Lane Kiffin arrived on campus. Naturally, he's OK with "Tribute to Troy" being played ad nauseam.
