USC Morning Buzz: Lincoln Riley Means Business

Exactly how has the culture changed at USC? What does it mean when someone says things get addressed?

Here’s how: If a player misses class, has grade issues or even misses a workout, Lincoln Riley has them stand in front of the team and state what they have done. They even miss a practice.

The message via Riley is clear: It’s hard to earn a spot when you don’t practice.

It’s a different world than under Clay Helton.

  1. ‘Ol Mule Shoe is going to find himself with over half the team missing practice. It’s second nature for those Ladies of Troy to skip class.

    Wait until he has to deal with those ladies spraining their toe nails and wanting a week off.

    1. According to sources, there were more players standing in front of the team than those who were being addressed. trogies will do what trogies do! Most player’s reason for missing practices were that the line at the hot burrito machine was very long.

      1. A heartbroken bruin fan after news of chip’s extension:

        “Wow…THE WORST coach in UCLA history who has gone 2-22 vs winning teams and is an anemic recruiter gets a 4 year extension. Martin is no better than Dan. Combine this with THE WORST Non Con schedule in UCLA’s history, and Chip will further his own worst home attendance record”

        2-22! Now, that is a record to be proud of!

    2. Culture change? My ass! I went by practice to introduce myself to the new coaching staff and was escorted off the field by security. I explained that I was former player and Riley just smirked and asked if I had any eligibility left and said ” You are of no use to us” “gtfo” The culture of using young people for football and discarding them are alive and well at USC… Recruits! Stay away from USC. They don’t care anything about you!

      2. Is this really Damien Mama? If so, did you leave the school on good terms? If you did then something is wrong here. You have been wronged and I’m disappointed. Do you and Lincoln Riley have a past? Now, I was also disappointed when you were called for that illegal player downfield penalty that cost us that first down late in the fourth quarter of Sam Darnold’s first start against Utah. Of course, Clay punted on fourth and two (after a terrible spot) from the Utah 42 (or so) yard line. We, of course go on to lose and it costs us the league title. Then the next game he goes for it on fourth and two from OUR 42 yard line (in front of my seats) in the FIRST QUARTER and fails, of course. Sorry to rant about that born to be an assistant coach Gomer and thanks for your (if this is Damien) contributions to our team for all those years. I appreciate your efforts, even if Lincoln doesn’t.

      3. actually, the best a coaching staff can do for athletes is to force them to perform and work their asses off. riley will develop alot of NFL talent in the coming years. he has a good coaching staff and has a REAL offensive and defensive scheme, instead of that simple “air raid” joke of the previous seasons.

        maybe riley didnt want your bad attitude infecting his players.

      In other words, that worthless polynesian pipeline has been shut down. No more free meals or bothering the medical staff with skinned knee boo boo’s requiring a Band-Aid will be tolerated from those grass skirt wearing, can’t take a hit without having to sit out a week on the sideline polynesian girls…they’re out of here.

      LMFAO!

    4. Scott Wolf has a boner for ‘Ol Mule Shoe.

      Mr. Wolf has hitched his lips to ‘Ol Mule Shoe’s ass too soon. Wait until ‘Ol Mule Shoe starts tanking when he shows he knows about an offensive line as Neil Callaway.

      Mr. Wolf won’t be able to pry his lips from ‘Ol Mule Shoe’s ass fast enough.

  2. This is what your blog is about Scotty, and so many just don’t get it! This kind of reporting will never grace the pages of the LAT but is crucial to getting the Trojan community to realize our dark days are behind us. A culture of accountability that probably hasn’t existed since Al Davis was an assistant is being created that could make USC the premier football program in the nation.

    Bohner hit a grand slam with Lincoln.

  3. I remember seeing a movie called “Pride of the Yankees.” This guy Lou Something is at Columbia university and he gets booted from the school for signing a contract with the Yankees. Why? Because it was against the rules.
    It’s an old fashioned notion to follow the rules but I’ll bet there are plenty of former Trojan stars who believe this attitude is right and just.

  5. Scooter,

    Standing in front of your peers and telling them what you did wrong as well as missing practice is easy street. Riley needs to make them do that plus run the entire time while practice is going on. That is softness.

  8. Hail Riley! Finally someone purged our program of the thugs and lazy scumbags. Now Caruso will clean our streets of Gascon and Garcettis liberal filth next

    Take a guess what the players missing class look like? Send them back to Long Beach State. I guarantee the pure bred players are the ones building back our culture. Send the scum back to the portal

    As someone said above it’s about time the worthless Polynesian pipeline is cut off. How many rapists and thugs will they send us drifting off the coattails of Troy Polanalu. Most of them are garbage!
