The USC Trojans were upset by Oregon State Thursday and lost their top football ranking. It wasn't their week. The team's slush fund at Washington Mutual has more than a hundred thousand dollars in it and they're waiting to find out if it's insured.
The U.S. Mint was forced to halt the sale of their American Buffalo and American Indian gold coin Friday due to overwhelming investor demand. That's how shaky the financial markets have gotten. People think the buffalo and the Indian look safe.
