Morning Buzz: Welcome To USC (Quietly And Loudly)

A lot of talking took place on Tuesday. In the first case, we get a low-key start and a crescendo at the end.

Lincoln Riley welcomes the 9.9 percent of students who applied that were admitted to USC with a laid-back greeting.

But then at the 1:44 mark, kaboom! Coach Bohn offers his own congratulations. Loudly!

      4. TO: A nose joke is not anti-semitic. It may be anti-Rosen or anti-UCLA quarterbacks, or in poor taste, but not truly anti-semitic. However, comparing a nose joke to “1939 Nazi Germany hate speech” is highly offensive. It is even more offensive than saying that our American hero Buzz Aldrin participate in a staged moon landing.

    1. I inclined to agree, Buddha. As I stated last month, part of my concern is that LeBron appears as if he MIGHT be the second coming of Lavar Ball…a dad who thinks that because his son’s the star, he should have more of a say in the coach’s decision making than any other parent.

    Amazing how Easter is a mere footnote to Christmas the way Christians celebrate it
    and yet the resurrection is the foundation of their religion.

    1. LJ,

      Christians need both, Christmas and Easter. Christmas is for the birth of Our Saviour. Easter is for when Christ died for our sins and he rose as predicted on the third day. The consumers and shops have made Christmas out to be bigger than Easter due to it being like a bonus for people when they get presents at the end of the year. Everyone enjoys presents. God Bless you and to all the people here on this board.

      1. Funny thing, Michael, is as a young boy I asked my father if I could spend the night outside hiding in the bushes so I could see this Easter Bunny who left an Easter basket each year, but I fell asleep in my bed instead.

        So I guess I have come a long way since those infantile days to the present where I love Jesus the man and do not need a resurrection to believe he set the example for how to really live life

  3. GT, So Cal, Michael, Cal75, Gabby, and to all,

    Happy Holy Thursday. This is a very significant night. Christ gave us Holy Communion and the priesthood.

    So Cal, lent ends tomorrow at 3 P.M. after Christ dies. Or not until Easter Sunday when Christ has risen.

    1. So Cal,

      I enjoy both every much for two reason. Christmas because it is very close to my birthday and I am lucky to be very close to Christ’s birthday and for Easter because he fulfilled his promise and that he died for my sins so he could wash away my sins.

    2. Lent ends with the celebration of Mass of the Lord’s Supper. Lent represents the time Christ spent in the desert being tempted by Satan.

      http://www.sacredheart-alturas.org/faqhlythrsdy.htm

      That’s what I learned and what I follow. Though I don’t always indulge on Thursday night.

      Heck, I know some people were taught that if they give something up for Lent, that they get a pass on Sundays!! LOL! That one always cracked me up.

      Another thing people learned on their own…making the sign of the cross after receiving communion. The Church has never taught this. But they see other people doing it, so…

  4. Christianity really is a choice. Like our free desire to commune on a blog with such fascinating writers while waiting for football season to start. Mike bohn should really practice some temperance and follow coach Riley’s lead. By the way, Jerry Jones has promised Lincoln the Cowboys job any time he wants it. McCarthy spilled the beans on that one.

  5. Well I have been so busy I just had time to read yesterday’s sports section. The lone football article was about the Bruins beginning Spring ball. It surprises me that Wolf wasn’t all over it. ( or maybe he was and I missed it) New defensive coordinator (at least they got that right) and a huge banner the reads Semper Optimus (prime).
    By the end the end of the season it will read Semper Amissis.
    Due to the large number of Westwoodians who Grace these pages I thought I would give them some hope. Read Caleb’s fingernails!

      1. So cal: Actually he said 2030! But as usual, just making shit up. Approximately 5.7% of US car sales were fully electric car sales in 2022. That’s up from 3.2% in 2021, 1.7% in 2020, and 1.4% in 2019. We are not getting anywhere near 100% in 7 years.

        Gabby: What the fuck dude!!!!!…. Another example of a lack of comprehension. What is wrong with your brain, I am serious! This is simple stuff yet you struggle to understand. You really need to have a dementia screening.

        Let me break this down in a very simple form. Try to focus. My comment had absolutely nothing to do with the volume/percentage of sales. By 2030 manufacturers will only be able to sell electric cars, no more ICE, from what I recently read. In 7 years all “new” car sales will be 100% electric.

        Ok, give me some name-calling excuses.

        “But as usual, just making shit up”……once again, another cognitive lapse, yet I am the so-called “dumbass”…..look in the mirror old man

      3. Wait….the year had nothing to do with it. (toooo funnnny!) My point was that you totally misinterpreted the context of my comment, which led you to respond with something unrelated.

        Instead of acknowledging you misunderstood my original comment, you claim the “year” was an issue, which it wasn’t. I really think you need to be screened for dementia. You’re constantly displaying cognitive lapses related to the comprehension of written dialog. I see why friends and family have issues with you. Show some self-dignity and accept reality.
