    What? UCLA/USC is on regional cable? At night? What a blow to this rivalry….

  • boelterbruin

    Wow. No ABC for USC? That’s incredibly lame. Brian, is there an option for ABC (or another national network) to pick up that game later in the season?

  • UCLAW

    I think FSN gets the UCLA/USC game this year as part of their Pac 10 contract. The issue came up when USC scheduled some other conference game on December 5 instead of us playing them on Championship Sunday. The explanation was that FSN has the rights to the UCLA/USC game and they wanted it on November 28 instead of December 5.

    FSN just sucks: they have the worst commentaries, it’s the minor leagues of broadcasting annoying color analyst and horrible camera direction.

  • rejn

    and this is one of many reasons why we gave up our season seats – pro and con.

  • VB’s Office Plant

    In another blow to the rivalry Petros will be doing the game.

  • Bruins095

    absolutely agree, not to mention getting stuck with that annoying, moronic, blowhard Petros. It’s brutal listening to and looking at that buffoon. It’s bad enough having an $c alum doing the commentary, but this clown is the worst. I immeditely press mute and turn on the radio broadcast.

  • Bruins095

    It’s brutal having to listen to and look at that blowhard. It’s bad enough having an $c alum doing the commentary, but this clown is the worst. As soon as I see Petros, I immeditely press mute and turn on the radio broadcast.

  • Bruins095

    oops, sorry for double post. Thanks for the updates Brian.

    Thank God, I am not going to the game.
    I will wait for the 2010 game at the Rose Bowl.

  • scared to death

    I do not want to be in the hood after dark.
    I think I will pass on this game.

  • Slippery Pete

    9 games in a row. Have we done that in the last few years? I stopped going to the Coliseum quite a few years ago when we had to tailgate in a parking structure so I don’t really care what time the game starts.

  • Ryan

    How do you guys not like Petros? I know he is sc alum but the guy is really funny and easy to listen to…
    and Dohn, will the SDSU game be televised?

  • Ryan

    espn.com analyst Bruce Feldman wrote is his blog that

    • Former UCLA RB Aundre Dean (originally from Katy, Texas) is transferring to TCU.

    I guess his Texas side stayed with him

  • CalGirl

    Tee, hee!!! Teddy football is TOTALLY irrelevant =) =) =)
    GO BEARS!!!

  • lbcbruin

    I can’t believe this game isn’t gonna be national!!! I hope they at least put it in HD. I don’t know about you guys but Petros is pretty funny and he’s not a total SC homer.

  • LAWYER JOHN

    Agreed that FSN sucks. After 15 years on ESPN, the Champions League will be on FSN next year. Not looking foward to that because Fox Sports coverage is pretty terrible. In all honesty, you never really know what you have until its long gone.

    As a sidebar, I enjoy Petros Pappadankis. He is a wonderful representative of the Armenian Community. Petros reminds me of a young Keith Jackson. Petros would have made a wonderful colleague as a Barrister, he has great oral skills.

    this sux. i haaaaaate fsn with a passion, and ive been saying that for years. now, dont get me wrong, i dont hate the people personally, like james washington, altho he sounds like mickey mouse on acid, seems like a nice enough guy and is a sold-out fellow bruin…and lindsay soto, altho a toejam trOJan, is easy on the eyes in the classic hottie nerdy way and seems nice enough…and papadakis i grudgingly admit has grown on me and genuinely makes me laugh.

    BUT FSN IS STRAIGHT UP GHETTO!!

    how else can one say? it always has an amateurish, 2nd rate, tight budget, no talent, backyard grass watching, unpolished presentation, real network reject, no one watching, small-game, small school vibe to it.

    ya know??? *sigh*

    dohn, do u agree with that assessment, or no?

  • rejn

    Petros is one-halp Greek, NOT ARMENIAN.

  • Anon

    I actually like Petros and think he’s a pretty good commentator (and sometimes pretty funny). But I don’t think he should be doing the UCLA/SC game. Any other game is fine.

  • Ri-L

    I like Matt Smith, but I can’t take Petros’ constant hollering. I stopped listening to them a year ago. Lawyer John, Petros is Greek. His family owns a Greek restaurant in San Pedro.

    He, he, ho, ho!!! Where are those fascists Bruin Faithful and UB??? =) =) =) Teddy Bear football is NOT relevant!!! You won’t be polluting the air with your dumb TrOJie rivalry anymore =) =) =)

    thanks for the input CalGirl. Have a nice day.

  • LAWYER JOHN

    CalBoy, the so-called “Big Game” has never been on national TV. Ever. The only TV exposure the “Big Game” gets is on Sports Bloopers when they show that last play from 1980 where your Bears were like the Keystone Cops trying to get into the end zone. Which by the way they never legally reached the end zone so that 1980 game should have been a W for the Farm.

    You’re right CalGirl: The Cal Teddy Bears ARE irrelevant. Thank God I’m a BRUIN! Anyone care to take a shot at guessing at which game Cal will do it’s annual mid-season choke job? I’m guessing 10/17/09…Tedford just can’t seem to win in the Rosebowl. As much as I’m happy that football season is slowly but surely approaching, my one regret is having to put up with CalGirl’s inane posts.

  • CalGirl

    Well, well, well…… The CalGirl haters are at it again, THEY CAN’T DEAL WITH REALITY!!! Lawyer J is OLD and living in the past; and L.A. Femme, when you get OFF YOUR TANNING BED you’ll realize that my BEARS will OWN THE ROSE BOWL. The TeDDies are pathetic this year, like with that FAT Stan Hasiak and no real quarterback, he, he, he!!!
    GO BEARS!!! =) =) =)

    ——————————

    On second thought, welcome back CalGirl. Your posts, though inane and moronic, are good for a laugh or ten. You will own the Rose Bowl? You couldn’t even own the Rose Bowl when Dorrell was the coach! Seriously, is this the best you can do? Tanning bed? Come on now, if you’re going to bring the smack talk, at least make it good.

  • UB (Ultimate Bruin)

    It appears as if my comment was removed simply for repeating what the nice neighbors in South Central LA say . . .

  • CalGirl

    Maybe you TeDDies wouldn’t be so angry all the time if your bowels weren’t full of rotting red meat, yeech!!! Try going veg and you’ll feel better =) =) =)

  • Bruins095

    The play was in 1982 and it my opinion was legal. I was at the game and saw it up close. Mariet Ford soured the legacy and can now enjoy retelling the play to his fellow inmates.

    Petros has great oral skills, that is funny. Have you heard this idiot try to sound intelligent. the $c education is all to obvious.

    I grew up watching Cal football, talk about irrelevant. Last rosebowl was 50 years ago. Last rosebowl win was 70 years ago. Cal sold it’s soul to get Tedford, significantly lowered their standards to bring in Jackson and Lynch, and still came up short. Tedford has brought some excitement to Berkeley, but dreams of roses are just that…..dreams. UCLA will get back to the rosebowl game before Cal.

  • Bruins095

    Cal football – irrelevant since the Coolidge administration. Roll on you bears.

  • La Femme Bruin

    Well CalGirl, that was an…um..interesting rebuttal. And it only took you a little over two hours to come up with, too! As for going veg: if God had wanted us to be vegetarians, he wouldn’t have made Cows taste so damn good. LOL

    Anyhow, I hate this Pac-10 deal with FSN. When does this contract expire?
