USC Morning Buzz: Basketball Stays In Spotlight

Some Sunday notes:

The Oregon-Oregon State game will tip off at 5 p.m. and be televised on FS1.

If Oregon wins, USC plays the winner of No. 7 Utah vs. No. 10 Washington in the Pac-12 Tournament.

If Oregon State wins, USC plays the winner of No. 8 ASU vs. No. 9 Washington State.

How would you like to be Mick Cronin with an 0-4 record against Andy Enfield? It could be worse. Enfield started off 0-5 against UCLA in 2014-15.

Coach Bohn, of course, is happy about Cronin’s 0-4 record vs. USC because he was upset over the way Cronin left Cincinnati for UCLA. I got that on good authority from people at Cincinnati, by the way.

    1. The Sunday Sit Down Conversation

      Reflecting back to when Jesse Ventura slapped around treasonous trumplican lying filth Sean Hannity of Faux News. Ventura bitch slapped that lowlife lying Hannity with the truth about how bad (R) George W. Bush screwed this country up by waging two corrupt wars and tanking the economy leaving it on the verge of another Great Depression.

      That piece of shit Sean Hannity nearly losing his mind when Jesse Ventura said that Preeident Obama had to clean up Bush and the republicans mess.

      LMFAO!

        The only thing Obummer cleaned up was the money he’s gotten from people he did favors for, the guy is an empty suit, if he wasn’t half black no one would have ever paid attention to him.

        Take heart, I suppose one of these days you will …eventually win…maybe…. in your building…if you have a time machine you might even be able to see it. But you still have water polo..oh, wait, you lost in that too.

      6. Good ole Jesse. Very good commentator on wrestling along
        side of Gorilla Monsoon and even owner Vince McMahon.
        The best in the 80’s of characters and showmanship in the
        squared circle. He did lose out to Vince in getting healthcare
        for all the wrestlers.

      1. I’m sure Nike has paid for off the books influence for a long time in many conferences… don’t think that is in anyway surprising. Why is it that when the feds went after influencers of high school athletes, none of the shoe companies got tagged? Isn’t that the whole point, Nike schools vs Addidas schools vs LA Knights schools (sow).

      2. Exactly right. The $$$ are in the shoe companies, and they seem to always evade prosecution. Including the case of Nike and Zion Williamson. Perhaps they evade prosecution because the NCAA going after the sponsors would destroy too many $$$. Just like with Sam Gilbert and UCLA. If the NCAA had gone after UCLA and Gilbert, it would have devastated college hoops for years.

      3. Larry is Oregon’s bitch. Everybody knows it. He’s fudged (I used that word very on purpose) things in favor of Oregon in little and big ways since the day he came in —making up the rules on the fly to serve Oregon’s purposes. But his bitch-reign is nearly over.

[I do have to say that the best boxer I ever boxed was a Minneapolis Golden Gloves Champion —I had no clue how to fight a southpaw and just got my ass kicked from start to finish—luckily, he didn’t have a knockout punch].

  1. What a jerk UCLA basketball coach Mick Cronin is. Did anyone see his press conference after the game. He is a rude/ punk with a small man’s complex. He gave all the excuses with no credit to USC for coming back. I hope we play them again in the Pac 12 tournament so he then can go climb in a small hole which is about right for how short he is.

    He probably promised everyone at UCLA he can bring the Wooden years back. I don’t think so there is NO MORE SAM GILBERT, and college basketball is balanced now with alot of good teams.

    1. He is starting to feel the pressure. They have only one quality win the entire year (Colorado). But that is one more quality win than what Chip has with Bruin football the last 3 years.

  2. Does anyone remember the “small people” actor and entertainer Billy Barty. Mick Cronin is his look alike. Billy, did not have a small man’s complex like Mick Cronin does. Cronin, must have decided to move to Hollywood to get into acting, and coach basketball at UCLA on the side. What a jerk I see many players transferring from UCLA with his poor Napoleon attitude. If they ever make another Wizard of Oz movie Cronin will be a perfect fit as one of the small people in the land of oz. Can you image this guy coaching Kareem who would dunk this guy down the basket faster than a basketball.

    1. I felt that Cronin lost the game for UCLA.
      He took the “foot off the gas” and hot Bruin shooters went “cold.”
      Irrespective, he’s a good coach and with good talent the Bruins will be a tough game 2 or 3 times a year.

      As for me, I’d like to see Oregon return to its rightful place in the mid pack of football and basketball. I’m fine if they win the long-distance track events…cuz no one cares about THAT sport.

  3. Being how short Cronin is I guess he does look up to all his players. He is a good coach, but need to be better with the media if he intends to last long at UCLA.. Dana Altman, is by far the best coach in the conference there is no one that is even a close second.
