CONFUSED USC SONG GIRL TO LINE UP BEHIND RIGHT GUY? USC cheerleaders (or Song Girls as we SC fans call them) have gotten a bad rap over the years, but I’m happy to report that Scott Wolf of the LOS ANGELES DAILY NEWS has some (supposed) good news regarding Natalie Nelson, the USC Song Girl who was torched by internet-based sports observers for supposedly cheering for Texas’ game-winning touchdown in the 2006 NCAA BCS championship game.
Wolf notes Nelson is getting married to former USC offensive lineman Ryan Kalil, who will be going pro this season and is expected to be a relatively high NFL draft pick (there is some disputing of this fact by commenters on Wolf’s blog).
Kalil was the center for USC offensive line the last three years, and here’s hoping that Nelson makes sure, unlike a prominent quarterback of the past, she’s got her hands down the pants of the right guy.UPDATE: I talked to someone today who knows Nelson, and the engagement is true. She had previously dated Dallas Sartz for some time, but now is hot on Kalil, and now plans to tie the knot with the USC lineman (after consulting on Ryan’s draft position with Mel Kiper? Hmmm).
