San Diego Buzz: Chargers officially file, Hoffman falls short

BY Trevor Arroyo • January 8, 2016

The vote on which team(s) will be allowed to move to Los Angeles will be made next week, with 24 of 32 votes needed for each.

In his first year of eligibility to make baseball's Hall of Fame, Padres legend and one of the best relief pitchers of all-time, Trevor Hoffman fell 34 votes shy of the 75 percent total vote needed to make it. While Hoffman fell just short this year, Ken Griffey Jr. was elected with the highest voting percentage ever, and former Padre Mike Piazza made it in his fourth year on the ballot.

Here is the Padres official statement on the 2016 Hall of Fame election results.

The San Diego State men's basketball team has had a rough non-conference run this year, but have hopefully put that behind them as the team improved to 3-0 in Mountain West Conference play this week with a victory over San Jose State.

Back in September, a report came out that the San Diego State men's basketball team was under investigation by the NCAA for possible infractions committed by the staff and improper benefits to prospects. Those allegations were squashed on Tuesday when the team released a statement stating that the investigation was over and no wrongdoing was found.

San Diego State alum Ryan Lindley got a lot of love from his former Arizona Cardinal teammates last Sunday after throwing a touchdown pass for the Indianapolis Colts. Watch the Cardinals' reactions while watching the game in their locker room.

This guy's reaction to finding his car flooded in a parking garage probably sums up a lot San Diegan's emotions this week.
