Saturday Buzz: It’s The No Pressure USC-UCLA Game

Today’s USC-UCLA game is a free hit for the Trojans.

What I mean by that is all the pressure is on UCLA and Mick Cronin.

UCLA needs to beat USC a lot more than USC needs to beat UCLA.

Cronin has never beaten USC. He is 0-5.

In fact, if you take away last season’s NCAA Tournament-run, has Cronin been that great at UCLA? I think he is a good coach and he can recruit.

But he couldn’t win the Pac-12 this year despite getting his Final Four team back. When I read the UCLA fanboy media, they seem very forgiving and discuss all the adversity. But that’s what fanboys do at every school.

So who do you think wins today?

USC has no pressure. But UCLA needs to win. It’s a tough pick.

  1. Vegas has made UCLA a bigger favorite over the Trojans than Arizona was — what’s with that? Is revenge and home court worth 8 points? The teams are even in talent —do the odds makers think the Trojans won’t show up?

  2. Being a Fanboy, I think USC will win AGAIN tonight and keep the little ruins where they belong. If the Trojans should lose we all know it is just a minor fluke, never a trend.

    1. There is no talent-related reason why USC shouldn’t win. But there have been times when Andy’s failed to get our guys sufficiently pumped for a Big Game…

  5. If anyone is interested I posted a couple texts late Friday nite on Scott’s blog yesterday. They are about Trojan football history in the 30s and 40s. I know some people like this kind of stuff and others could not care less. If you are interested somehow they got placed about thirteen from the bottom yesterday

  6. UCLA – 82 USC 70. Easy win for the Bruins on their home court. The good news is this means we will hear from OWNS again soon after a long vacation in Warsaw, Poland.

    1. When it comes to SUCLA, hate is the right word. I’m with you, Tirebiter!!

      Forget all the pansies & how easily they are offended. If it weren’t for their feelings being hurt by mean tweets, the entire world would not be in this mess right now and we wouldn’t be paying $5 a gallon for gas, (soon to be $6-8). Putin & Xi have become emboldened by Biden’s weakness.

      1. Dumbass can’t read either. Someone else brought up the fact that “hate” in this woke world of ours would offend some and I merely replied about another example of that and how it’s gotten us here.

        But no, because he’s one of the idiots who voted not FOR his candidate, but against someone who hurt his little feelings, he wants to forget that and try to pretend he and the other wusses aren’t responsible for EVERYTHING. Over COVID 500K deaths under a guy who claimed he had a plan to defeat it, inflation that has families struggling to put food on the table and gas in their cars, a botched exit from Afghanistan that killed 200 people, thousands of deaths in Ukraine & counting, human trafficking & drugs coming up through our now non-existent borders and the entire world worried about the possibility of WWIII. That is entirely on the people who voted for it!

        I’ve told him before, if he doesn’t want to read it, he doesn’t have to. But he likes to cry and play the victim. So he comes back for more over & over again.

        The majority of people on this thread agree with the assessment I’ve laid out above because it’s a FACT. He’s the only one who cries & cries about it and then tries to claim he’s not crying. Funny stuff!

  7. It is a tough pick. I pick UCLA but after the loss that SC took against Arizona, SC will not want to lose twice in a row. Like I said, it’s a tough pick. I think Cronin is an outstanding coach….better than Enfield but not as good of a recruiter.

  10. Surprise guest tonight for sure if UCLA wins. OWNS has agreed to come out of his bomb shelter built in the 60’s to hide from the Russians if and only UCLA wins. That’s a very courageous act on his part.

    1. Same way we’ll have to see SUCLA shirts tomorrow while out & about if they win. But if they lose, you’ll hardly see any. We have our share of fair weather fans, but that is practically their entire fan base.

  15. Not to worry they’re bringing in the officials from the super bowl. They’ll be beating each other with clubs until the last 2 minutes which will take thirty minutes and a bomb scare to finish. USC will win on style but Ucla has a guy who can land a triple asshole (stupid spell check) and he’ll make it close.
