USC football feels the burn.

Foxsports.com has this report from Southern California…

It’s not as serious as, say, starting quarterback Mark Sanchez’s dislocated kneecap, but the USC Trojans are suffering a new rash of injuries.

Emphasis on rash.

According to a report in the Los Angeles Times, as much as 25% of the team has been affected by a run of tinea cruris, known more colloquially as “jock itch.”

That’s right: jock itch. Not veneral disease, USC haters, so just stop saying that right now.

And let’s make no mistake: crotch fires are never funny. Never. Never ever. When your man-timber is alight like the Burning Man after a week of partying at Black Rock, that’s nothing to joke about.

You’ll forgive tailback Joe McKnight and wide receiver Travon Patterson if they aren’t laughing. Both were unable to practice Wednesday because of the severity of the irritation.

“It burns,” Patterson said.

Which is kind of a misquote. Patterson actually said…

IT BURNS!!11!1!!

Patterson said.

Just so as we’re clear. Sorry, guys: it sucks to be you right now.
