Discuss The USC-UCLA Game

What a debacle. Did you see the end?

Drake London and Olaijah Griffin have to run over and taunt the UCLA sideline after the game ends, which is part of big scene on the field.

And then Clay Helton falls in the end zone trying to send London to the locker room.

As for, the game how exposed was USC and Todd Orlando, etc.?

Only Chip Kelly’s incompetence at the end prevented a USC loss.

    1. Another cheap win against another less than mediocre weak PAC 12 team.

      Shit, Alabama, Ohio St. and Clemson would beat these Trojans by 40+ pts. so WTF are you clowns so happy about?

    2. USC literally has more 4 and 5 star recruits on their roster than all other PAC 12 teams combined and they’re barely beating these weak PAC 12 teams and you have so called Trojan fans going out of their minds as if these cheap wins are some great accomplishment.

      That’s about as fucking embarrassing as it gets…DAMN!

      1. Drake London is the only player on the Trojan roster who won’t underachieve due to Clay Helton’s 3rd rate coaching.

        All other 4 and 5 star recruits will suffer and have their talent severely hindered by this Trojan coaching staff.

    3. BS, MG. Taunting is signifies a pisspoor winner. I’m surprised you agree with bozo taunting UCLA. I guess I’ve misjudged you.

      SUCC deserved to win but that’s no excuse to taunt. It’s just one of the reasons I can’t stand Clown U.

      I hope the bozos make the playoffs and have to face Alabama.

  2. I’m sorry if I’m not enthusiastic or somewhat harsh. If that spineless pile doesn’t spend the next 30 minutes chewing out those asshats in the locker room for that classless display after the game, he has no business coaching any sport on any level. I’m sorry there is no discipline or class left in this program. They should be embarrassed on so many levels. The Bruins just did everything possible to give them this game, they should just keep their mouths shut and be thankful. We all know this is facade of a team. Lots of talent, no discipline little technique, zero scheme. Now no class either.

      1. sorry Marv, swagger is confidence and it is on display prior to and during the contest. Not taunting and making a spectacle post game or acting like a dipshit post play for doing something you are supposed to do like make a tackle. They even do that shit during a poorly thrown incomplete pass by the opposition. With all do respect, don’t call that swagger. Especially since swagger is an over used under defined word. If you focus on doing your job then you are more apt to get your job done. When your job gets done and you take care of business, then that is the biggest statement and most intimidating. You act like they did you are acting like you are 0-10 and just beat a league champ. Act like you f-n been there before. I know I’m old school especially for my age but that’s how I developed in this rivalry and competed over my head, and also coached in this rivalry over my head and was successful. Both of these schools have discussed me many a time for their behavior. All in the name of rivalry. That bullshit is for the idiot fans. There contestants need to have some integrity and dignity. As do the coaches.

  3. Scottie, your lead-off is “what a debacle?” Really?

    The kids never gave up. O-line showed some glimpses of strength in the run game. Slovis, Hufanga, Jackson, Vaughans, London, ARSB, VM, all came through.

    Chip Kelly was done as a coach in 2012. Their 4th quarter was gutless. Can’t believe they kept leaving ARSB one-on-one.

    Why did Stepp spend the entire game – except for a key 3rd down carry – on the sidelines?

    The Pac-12 refs are awful.

But I think the bigger picture is that you want to be relevant again like the rest of us, as well as a product and kids you can be proud of. (sorry for assuming this but it seems right) So this product and this conference ain’t gunna get it done on any level. Starts at the top. Larry is a sociopath that has hoodwinked the clueless presidents. And keeps promising them big things that don’t come. But prez turnover allows him to not be figured out and called to the carpet. Presidents are all spineless. Most ADs (good ones have been poached by big 12 and sec and acc) are unqualified at running top notch departments especially under funded thanks to Larry. And this could be the worst group of power 5 coaches in the business. Clay being the least qualified and the most problematic in the bunch. If UCLA could cover a kick, It would have become apparent that game management was blown with no time outs left. The pac 12 and usc will not be relevant until these dominos start to fall. The longer they stand the further away from relevance they all will be. It takes time to rebuild and worse the mess the logger it takes…and its getting messier by the day

      6. Mike, Ill let you enjoy the spirit and fight. But give me this, would the fighting spirt have come that easy if UCLA didn’t bungle their way through the second half and forget how to get Felton in space or DTR on the parameter. The Kings of Non adjustments looked brilliant (with out making adjustments) just by walking onto the field, with ill advised 4th down attempts and fake punts and brain dead kick coverage and double offsides penalties inside the 10 on 3rd and long. That type of stuff brings fight a lot easier as you see the other side implode. I think the bruins were just as responsible for the usc fight as were the trojans. But that comes from 50 years of watching and being involved in this rivalry, as well as being involved in elite athletics on different levels. Its easy to see at the moment when momentum swings and who causes it. Its true they didn’t roll over. Buy the bruins and sun devils both had real simple paths to closing the door on victory and got too cute for themselves. Look at Colorado today burning the clock before the half. Take a knee. Don’t put your tail back in play to fumble with 20 seconds on your side of the field and give up 3 with seconds left. That was a momentum swing and moronic move. As inept as this staff is, sometimes they get bailed out by almost as inept pac 12 staffs

      7. This was a game of some remarkable individual plays by London, Vaughans, Slovis, Hufanga, Jackson. And I’ll throw in Stepp for his one carry in which he took tacklers with him to get the first down. Without those individual efforts, USC loses. Slovis now has three last minute comeback wins this season. How many great college QBs have done that in their collegiate career?

  9. Surprised, and will take this win. Great game by Tyler Vaughns, St. Brown, Drake, and for a change the tight end. The catch by Tyler Vaughns leaping in the air, and stealing the ball from the Bruin defender was one of the great catches in USC history. The kickoff return by our freshman wide receiver was the key. Great effort.

    My goodness please recruit some linebackers in this upcoming class. We are too weak up the middle on defense, and really need some more speed and size at the middle linebacker, and outside linebacker/defensive end position. Time after time we came close to getting some sacks on the UCLA QB, and the lack of closing speed enabled UCLA to extend the play despite some pressure from the SC defense.

  10. You guys forget, you make your luck. Luck doesn’t just fall your way. Just think if this team were more disciplined, had more structure, really practiced so they could play for a full 60 minutes how awesome they would really be? They walked through the first half, were lazy and haughty. And the second half they turned it around. They made their luck. If they would just put their noses to the grindstone and work hard they wouldn’t be in this position every game. And, they might be able to compete on a national level. Just think if Urban Meyer had coached this group of young men. With their passion, fire, and talent, and his culture and identity, they would be lights out good. Here’s to dreaming of better days…..

I don’t know what team we will play, but I see the same debacle (as Scott would say) as last bowl season coming soon. We are still coached by Clay Helton. Ask yourself these questions; why is one of our best defensive players in the transfer portal? Why was there an illegal block in the back? Why were players posing after routinely doing their job? Why did it take 3 3/4 games to develop a running game? Why can’t the I line protect the quarterback better than they do?
    Contrary to popular belief, I don’t get paid by the word so this is enough for today.

    1. Why can’t they just tackle properly. One of the simplest fundamentals of playing TACKLE football. If USC could just do that right. It wouldn’t magnify their flaws so much. That’s their biggest problem this year besides the culture. Clueless Clay doesn’t have a clue as usual. Because this happens every fucin year. He still doesn’t practice tackling or sit a player down for making stupid mistakes. St Brown Vaughns and Figurora all stayed in the game still right after inexcusable screw ups.

He’s complimenting the players for not listening to him & doing their own thing. It’s a strange show of humility. I can’t help but feel for him. If he didn’t before, he sure realizes now that he needs to just let the players play…. he’s more of a den mother.

    I will go back and review all of your incredibly prescient and cogent posts of the last week tonight when my wife permits. Expect a lot of likes and delayed comments from me.

    Gonna watch the replay of last nights game, cuz it looks like it was an instant classic. While my wife–who saw me going apoplectic–was screaming at the internet provider, I was following the game–egad–via the ESPN play-by-play feed.
    ….Drug addict looking for a fix.

    What little I can surmise from the play-by-play I followed on my phone, the Trojan O and D are ballers who make big plays when the moment demands. We all would rather have a Pete Carroll cakewalk by the end of the 3rd period–with Walkons getting game reps, yahoo! Not gonna happen with this administration.

    We have all been critical of the Strength and Conditioning program, but maybe last night our O&D front 7 were better conditioned than UCLA and we got the late running game going due to wearing down the Bruins (?). I’ll have to watch the replay tonight carefully before supporting this. In the “W vs ASU,” I think we wore down the Devils’ D at the end of the game They were gassed after we ran 100 plays. Same for UA I bet–though we didn’t run 100 plays.

    We have all been critical of the defense’s inability to “create” turnovers in the Helton era. I don’t have the numbers, but it seems that our D is ball-hawking a lot better with Orlando. That’s a good sign. Giving up 570 yards of “O” to the Chipper is repulsive, but he’s been whipping the Trojan’s D for half a decade. As mentioned by others, rebuilding the LB corps is mandatory.

    Chris Claiborne, where are you?

    On numerous occasions I’ve stumped for Vavae, and it seems like last night was his night. Can’t wait to actually watch the game and see how he got the tough yards. I’ve stumped for him since he was a freshman. I see him as a 3rd/4th round steal of a draft pick. I bet that Stepps is still healing a bit. Give Vavae 20+ touches vs UW and we will win.

    I feel really sad for Carr. Toiling behind a horrible O-line all his years, and the injuries he suffered likely cost him a professional career. He works hard when given the ball, but just can’t get a break.

    I still take Darnold at 6’4 over Slovis at 6’2. Sam hasn’t had a QB coach since HS. If we can get Kedon to a solid 220 or so by August 2021, I’ll recant. Too bad we can’t get Kurt Warner to relocate to the big El Lay.

    …and yes it was a nice small batch Calumet Farms Bourbon last night. I’ll save the Blanton’s for Friday night vs the dogs.

  19. Watching USC football is like watching a kid with a Ferrari pull out a come from behind win against a Pinto because he was mangling the gears until he hit 4th gear.

    This team has amazing player talent, but poor coaching. The offensive scheme is a mess and requires players like Vaughns to flat-out beat opponents with skill.

    Being a USC fan is manic-depressive. Love the highs, but hate the downers. Well, got to celebrate some of the exceptional performances from the players yesterday!
