It’s Not Southern Cal; Or Is It?

Some amazing timing here.

USC radio broadcaster Pete Arbogast tweeted this out yesterday.

And here are the uniforms the women’s basketball team will wear tonight.

  1. I agree with Arbo.

    Maybe one of those new Heritage Hall employees from Chokelahoma designed tonight’s uni’s.

    Have a great weekend everyone!!

  2. Time-to-chime in I suppose, but as I poke in once-in-a-while I caught where a ‘Lawyer John’ imposter was blown away by Gabby, and Gabby also got me last Fall with the argument of College Sports-Playoffs, 12 teams or 8 teams– and although I shall argue ’til the day I die that Top-8 football teams is high enough
    I am working on living with ’12’

  3. Arbogast is blow hard…he is a mediocre radio talent …you ever wonder why he hasn’t been hired by an nfl team?

    As for the name — it’s not hard to find pictures of John Robinson patrolling the USC sidelines wearing a Southern Cal cap.

    So Cal

      1. The Seahawks get a last-second FG to go up 17-16 at the half…..sweet!

        They need to eliminate the chunk plays on defense, and get more pressure on Purity

    1. I respectfully disagree, Arbogast is much more than a real-time play-by-play voice. He’s truly an encyclopedia on the history of high school and college sports throughout Southern Cal.

  4. THE NAME SOUTHERN CAL IS THE NAME WE HAD WHEN WE FIRST BURST ONTO THE NATIONAL SCENE IN THE TWENTIES AND THIRTIES
    ITS TRADITIONAL SO I LOVE IT WHEN ITS STILL USED SOMETIMES

    THE MOVEMENT BY THE ADMINISTRATION TO DROP THE NAME BEGAN IN THE MID FORTIES

    OBVIOUSLY IT DIDNT WORK.

        I love ugly. They pay for our players and they will pay us large when they’re out the door.

        Sturdivant was an all American for us. Second day draft pick.
        We’ve already replaced him. His ‘trainer’ was attempting to broker deals all over the country before he entered the portal . Ugly stepped up.
        I believe he made a terrible decision. Time will tell. Cal is going to an air raid with a QB that runs 4.3 and can drop a dime at ‘alledgedly’ 60yds down field. No one can catch 4.3. Ott also runs 4.3.

        We’ll see. PAC is going to be a strong conference with depth in 2023.

You will do what they want you to do, think what they want you to think, desire what they want you to desire, say what they want you to say and you will even use the new language they want you to use to say what they want you to say. George Orwell was way ahead of his time.

      1. I was just assuming that USC is asking their employees not to use the term “field”. With the libs, what starts out as a request or suggestion usually evolves into a command with penalties for those who ignore the command. In NY they were, at first, asking people to “respect” LBGTQ+ people by using their chosen personal pronouns. Now you can be fined up to $250,000 for failing to use the right pronouns. All over america you can be fired. In Canada there have been people jailed for that offense. But it is especially true on college campuses. One time Jesse Waters was speaking to one of those libs. She said ” I guarantee you, in 50 years everyone will be speaking this way”. Then he started correcting her as she spoke. She couldn’t even get a sentence out without using words that the woke crowd had condemned.

      As for the field/practicum debate, obviously the school of social work did not want to be outdone by Stanford. Now we’re waiting on lists from Cal and UCLA so we can reconcile any differences to produce a final list of gibberish.

      1. Stanford……the school that changed it’s nickname from “indians” to “cardinal” because the indians might object. I’ve never heard any major indian group complain about that. Maybe I’m wrong. Why would they complain? When they use you as their nickname they are honoring you. After all, you never here of a team called the Ohio State Nazi’s or the Michigan State satan worshippers.
        To me the Washington Redskins are still the Washington Redskins. There might be some native americans who might object but I don’t think most of them do. If you are going to drop the “redskin” part, then we might as well do that across the board. Let’s change the name of the state of Oklahoma. “Oklahoma” is an indian word meaning “redman”. You’d find that a good percentage of the state names have to do with the indians.

      1. Yes 9000, I remember the 1998 Miami debacle. That scumbag, POS Pete Dalis, UCLA’s AD, insisted UCLA go to Miami to make up a meaningless game postponed early in the season, due to dire hurricane warnings.

        One week prior to the stupid Dalis makeup game, Miami lost to Syracuse 66-13, which gave Miami extra incentive to mug UCLA .

        Coach Toledo, by the Miami game, had lost control of the team ’cause several team members were trying to organize a college FB players union at the expense of maybe earning UCLA a coveted NC game invitation.

        Lastly, UCLA couldn’t/wouldn’t tackle Edgerrin James.

        But 9000, let’s be honest, UCLA’s Miami debacle is nothing compared to SUCC, the 2006, #2 team in the nation choka, choka, choka choking vs a mediocre 6-5 UCLA team, 13 -9, @ the Crumbling Mausoleum.

        That humiliating rivalry home loss cost Little Petey and bozos a lock invitation to the NC game. I remember at the post game PC, Little Petey looked and sounded rode hard and put away wet….LOL

        We didn’t get the Purity let-down, too bad. The game was entertaining, Seahawks fought hard but were worn down by a very physical SF team. SF is probably the best-tackling team in the league.
