LOS ANGELES, CA, August 13, 2009 -- The Los Angeles Times today revealed a site redesign aimed at capitalizing on unparalleled online growth and emblematic of ongoing editorial and business strategy implementation which made latimes.com the fastest-growing top newspaper site June 2008-June 2009. "The new latimes.com is representative of the changes we've made to create an around-the-clock, integrated newsroom armed with the tools that ensure immediacy, feed the Web, mobile devices and social media, and supplements our print edition," said Times Editor Russ Stanton.

The Times has begun using a new commenting platform for its online articles. In a note to users, Managing Editor/Digital Jimmy Orr said editors hope the changes will give readers better ways to communicate with each other and Times journalists, as well as provide better tools for moderators. If you're a frequent commenter, much in the new system will be familiar. The "report abuse" flags remain, and The Times will continue to rely on readers to help weed out offensive or inappropriate comments.

Question: Who would get the fourth berth in the playoff? That's the question I'd love to see you tackle. Ted Frank Answer: I tackled this question so hard in Monday's column I almost got called for "targeting. " And that ejection would have forced me to sit out the first half of next week's column. It's a great question but one next year's selection committee does not have to tackle because it is hypothetical. In fact, the BCS worked better this year than the four-team playoff would have worked.

Halfway through your story today I got a sick feeling and tossed the sports section into the couch. What exactly would a "big name" coach do for SC that Ed Orgeron can't do, recruit? Paul Hovsepian Hope you're feeling better and thanks, really, for making it halfway through one of my stories. Some readers can't make it past the byline. I've also had stories tossed into waste baskets, toilets and landfills. I even had one tossed into a salad, but never into a couch.

Did Coach O get himself a head coaching job (Saturday) night? Vince Muzik Not unless I missed a big story in my morning paper, but I do think USC interim Coach Ed Orgeron is moving closer to the point of no return. This is the "careful what you wish for" aspect of firing Lane Kiffin in the middle of the season. What if the interim coach, who isn't really the best long-term choice, goes on a hot streak that includes beating No. 5 Stanford? Well, then you may have a problem.

Adding to the mysteries in your column is Rankman slotting in USC as No. 25. If a 7-3 Notre Dame team that beat No. 14 Michigan State and No. 22 Arizona State doesn't deserve to be ranked (and they don't), then how can a 7-3 USC team that lost to Notre Dame (and ASU) merit a ranking? Gerry Swider My prayers were answered! Thank goodness, you are all alive! I thought the entire Domer Nation had retreated to an underground bunker with a year's supply of canned beans. The Irish's fan base camp was last seen in January leaving the Fort Lauderdale area for a long hike toward Mt. Alabama.

Hindsight is 20/20. Stanford "could" beat Oregon. Really went out on a limb. Shower yourself in Gatorade podcast. Kyle Ahlf I was asked in my weekly Monday podcast on latimes.com whether I would be shocked if Stanford beat Oregon. I said "no. " Stanford beat Oregon last year, I said, and was the defending Pac-12 and Rose Bowl champion. Why would it be a shock? And I sort of picked Stanford to beat Oregon in August when I made Stanford my preseason No. 1. Yet, after Thursday night's ESPN broadcast, analyst Jesse Palmer said no one thought Stanford could win. I suggested Palmer should have called my home.

There's a difference between loving college football and knowing it. I love my country but couldn't be Secretary of State. Twitter: @tcliftonsports Oh please, let's stop this stuff about Condoleezza Rice not being qualified to sit on a panel to choose four college football teams for a playoff. Rice is actually a college football nerd. She said the other day she remembers listening on the radio to the 10-10 tie between Notre Dame and Michigan State in 1966. Notre Dame played for the tie to protect its national title in the two national polls.

What a month. Great journalism and smart strategies for digital coverage continued in February, resulting in the biggest audience to latimes.com in the history of the site. We also recorded a 125% increase in video viewership, and L.A. Now and Entertainment set all-time records. Breaking News Nobody does breaking news better than the Los Angeles Times, and this was never more apparent than in our coverage of the manhunt for Christopher Dorner and his standoff with police.
