Thanks, Utah!

Another stellar night for the Conference of Champions.

Utah blows a 21-0 halftime lead and allows Washington to score the game-winning TD on an 88-yard drive.

Someone will undoubtedly say Utah looked better, which the Utes did in Game 2, and that somehow helps USC.

Well, Arizona hasn’t helped USC by giving up 71 points the past two games and losing 10 straight.

In many ways, USC fits right into this conference. Though it has the talent to win the Pac-12 unlike most teams.

    1. I am afraid you are right. USC stinks on the road ( away from
      the L.A. Coliseum ). They have been extra lucky in all three
      games catching Utah in their 1st game of the season. Helton
      is just a loser in preparation while Harrell is a mediocre play
      caller. Sark is the man now with his head on straight.
      Roll Tide!!

        Well this IS interesting. I am not sure if this site is for me anymore. Each email address used generates a unique symbol that represents the email address. One person on this page has 10 such symbols generated for his username. That is some next level trolling. And none of messages upon this thread has anything to do with the the purpose of the thread. It has developed into a prepubescent name calling.

      2. Mrs. Helton has it right. He had some serious problems and he is trying to reform himself. I wish him well. The last thing someone needs is being viciously ridiculed by someone. Where I come from we try to lend a helping hand for people in this situation.

    2. They definitely could. I watched J.T. Daniels yesterday and he looked the five-star gatorade man of the year that he was. Poised, great arm, good system. He made the best decision of his life. I am rooting for him. Shows how awful we really are. What a shame how far we have fallen. We are a mess.

  1. NO Pac12 in BCS in the near future …
    Utah has coaching, just less talent… Ore. St. too
    Oregon and Washington have both…
    Rivalry games somehow & sometimes negate both
    sc? just a shame…

      1. The big question: How many of those who tested positive were asymptomatic? 90%? Of those who were symptomatic how many bounced back in. say, 3 days? 90%?
        Interesting fact: You’d expect the number of deaths in the U. S. to be WAY up for 2020 —what with the extra 260,000 covid deaths —but the number is the SAME as last year.

      3. The answer is easy. It’s right there in the numbers. Cancer deaths way down. Heart attacks way down. Influenza deaths way down. Flu deaths way down.

  2. SuckSabian is still a fraud … anyone can win and look decent calling plays at Bamer. Kiffin even did. Let’s see if Suck grabs the South Carolina job and then falls on his fat ass, as usual.

    1. Sark a fraud?! Try telling that to Cody Kessler, sparky! Pat Haden charged him with standing over Sark as he performed ‘punishment’ for saying the word “fuck” in front of donors. Our former quarterback and team captain watched a MAN work off his shame with pushups……. [Cody even counted them off for Dan Weber’s camera crew —-from the number one all the way up to the number three].

      1. No way Pat Haden would punish Sark for showing up drunk to the Salute To Troy event with the blue hairs- he did that himself every year.

        “I met with Coach Sarkisian, and I expressed my disappointment in the way he represented himself and the University at our Salute To Troy event,” Haden said. “While the details of our conversation will remain between us, I am confident he heard my message loud and clear.”

      2. Yes, Pat. He heard your “message” (who talks that way?) SO loud and SO clear that he coached the Arizona State game drunk as a skunk.

      3. I am on the other side of this. Sark clearly had a problem when he was our coach. He has shown he can coach an offense. I hope he gets another shot as a head coach and does well. I root for redemption.

  3. “The only thing USC can control is what USC does”-Clay Helton coach USC
    ” We have zero positive tests for Covid because I have instituted strict controls over our players “- Clay Helton coach USC
    ” We have one unnamed player who is symptomatic with Covid, we are doing further testing and contact tracing to determine if any other players have been affected but we should be able to play on Saturday. ” – Clay Helton coach USC
    “Following the L.A. County guidelines, we are forced to face the possibility of not playing again this season. My commitment remains to the players and families of this university” -Clay Helton coach USC
    ” After a conversation with many different parties, my wife, the players, the voices in my head and the university administration, I have come to the conclusion that it is time to step down and move on. I will forever be grateful for the opportunity afforded myself and my family by the university and fans. It has been a great experience, but all good things must end. I will leave the players with just two words. Fight On!-Clay Helton shoeshine attendant union station west.

    1. Nice summary, Rialto…. but I don’t know why you omitted Carol Folt’s Sunday morning comment: “Even though everyone on the football team and athletic staff looks and feels fine as of this moment it’s probably better to cancel the remainder of this….and next….. season.”

        Just sweetly singing Carol Burnett’s closing song for Rialto.
        Personally, I love Carol Burnett and it is hard to hate on President Folt when she is equated with one of my favorite comediennes of all time.

        BTW, the Dentist scene with Harvey Korman and Tim Conway still makes me soil me knickers. Always worth a watch.

        Thanks Rialto.

  4. Question for the board?
    Name coaches in NFL who are worse than Helton
    I will start
    Adam Gase, Anthony Lynn, Kliff Kingsbury come to mind

    1. I wuz seriously hatin’ on Kliff, but he’s doing far better than I expected, so I’ve had to “eat crow.” Seems he picked a better QB.

      Still root against him 100%, but I can’t be hatin’.

  5. Anyone around here believes P76 will ever cut Curry Sark slack is delusional. Some people believe in tough love & others believe in mercy & coddling. P76 is the former.
    The two best football players in southern California are CAL alums. That friggin Sark had the unmitigated gall to say…”How does CAL get those guys?”.
    F you sarkisian. He is one of the biggest self centered jerks in college sports.

  6. Helton is a bad coach. Considering the school, he is the worst coach in the Pac12. I’m sure that there must be a worse coach in college football, but I can’t think of one. Helton is bad at recruiting, managing his staff, motivating his players, coming up with a game plan, holding practices, improving his players, or making game time decisions.
