Picked ninth, UCLA’s Anthony Barr becomes highest-drafted Bruin since 1996

That late fall was overblown after all.

None of the recent chatter about UCLA linebacker Anthony Barr’s supposed falling stock mattered. The Minnesota Vikings drafted him ninth overall, making him the top Bruin taken since 1996, when Hall of Fame offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden went fourth.

“When you draw it up, does he look like Jason Taylor or what?” said NFL Network’s Mike Mayock, comparing Barr to the six-time Pro Bowler. “That’s kind of how he plays.”

Mayock also pointed out that Barr has only played two years on defense, and will be even better if he learns how to use his hands and develops a counter move.

“He has no idea what he’s doing,” Mayock said. “It’s just natural ability, dip and go. It’s all speed, all natural ability. … But trust me folks, a lot of upside, and (head coach) Mike Zimmer and that staff will get it out of him. He’ll be special.

    Jack, why was Barr scared to go to NY?

    • anno nimus

      Barr CHOSE not to go. But Lee being the arrogant condom he is, along with Marcus Martin, both chose to attend because someone told them they would be picked in the first round. PIE ON THEIR FACE!!!! BAHAHAHAHAHAHA

      • NOBSisdaMAN

        Men of Troy. Pussycats of bRuins. Hahahahahahahaha

  • Chris Le

    Idiot he didn’t get invited

    • NOBSisdaMAN

      For good reason.

  • Chris Le

    Where as marques didn’t even get pick on first day

    • NOBSisdaMAN

      Would you take a guy that played on a lousy team and was hurt most of the year? I wouldn’t.

      • SUCC de trop

        Nobs, don’t forget all the passes Mr. Lee dropped. How many TD passes did Lee drop – the o/u is 7. Whine on Nobs.

        • NOBSisdaMAN

          BTW, I wouldn’t take Lee in the 2nd either.

      • Tommy B Low Us

        Typical…how fast you turn on your favorite idol. At least you finally admit that USC is a lousy team and will be for a long time. Congrats Nobs!

        • NOBSisdaMAN

          Win a National Championship in FB and get back to me. (Just ONE not shared)

          • Tommy B Low Us

            Blah Blah Blah. Let’s get back to talking about your Mommy. Way more interesting than your so called National Championship. Of which, you had nothing to do with.

          • NOBSisdaMAN

            You’d be surprised. Just because you got you head stuffed in the toilet and couldn’t play football, doesn’t mean everyone else is the same. Nerd.

          • Tommy B Low Us

            You play football? HAHAHA!! When do you find the time with all your blog posting? You must play for the Lingerie League.

          • NOBSisdaMAN

            Have dated a few. Unlike you, who dates the referees.

          • anno nimus

            Every single one of your “titles” was shared, but one, in 1973. Furthermore, it was not until 2004 when your douchebag AD decided to claim one from 1939 when national titles were voted by 15 sources…Texas A&M (10-0) was voted by twelve, Cornell 10-0) by two, and USC (8-0-2) one…so STFU with your nonsense. The REAL National Champions EVER, in college football will be crowned in January 2015.

          • NOBSisdaMAN

            1972 dummy.

            Still riding your one-trick pony, eh Joe? And that pony can’t even ride anymore so what now?

          • NOBSisdaMAN

            Big Yap. You’ve done NOTHING.

          • Demosthenes

            And neither have you, Joe.

          • NOBSisdaMAN

            Talking about the school dummy

          • Demosthenes

            Improper use of the pronoun, Joe. I am not UCLA. You are not USC. You like to lay vague claim to having played for USC, but you haven’t provided any details so I will assume its just bluster as usual.

          • NOBSisdaMAN

            That’s the difference between bRuins and Trojans. WE ARE USC.

          • Demosthenes

            Joe, I think we’ve been over this before. I didn’t go to UCLA and I expect you didn’t go to USC. I am but a casual fan of UCLA football and frequently marvel at your compulsion to troll this forum. I can only assume it stems from deeply ingrained personal inadequacies. I’m almost certain that the temp agency wouldn’t be happy to know you are doing this on your work time.

          • NOBSisdaMAN

            Of course you didn’t. You have to have more than a GED even to get into ucla. BTW, I own my company and we hire guys like you to take out the trash, clean the floors, etc. Your service is invaluable.

          • Demosthenes

            Nice to know that you own a janitorial firm. It shows how even the lesser of us can rise to some degree of success in this country. Thanks for reaffirming the American dream for all of us, Joe.

          • NOBSisdaMAN

            Ok, enough. Be quiet and get back to cleaning the heads. We have company coming over.

          • Demosthenes

            Aw, Joe. Don’t fool yourself. You don’t have company coming over. You actually have to have friends for that to be the case.

          • Tommy B Low Us

            Nobs has Mommy issues. That is why the Trollgen does what he does. That, and the fact that he is a loser that lives in his Mommy’s basement.

  • Tommy B Low Us

    How we start a blog within a blog and list the ways that Nobs is the Man.

    We should use the term “man” very lightly here.

    • NOBSisdaMAN

      You wife thinks I’m the Man

      • Tommy B Low Us

        Your Mommy thinks I’m the man

        • NOBSisdaMAN

          Yep, the man with the small Oscar Meyer.

          • Tommy B Low Us

            Your Mom says the nickname for you is Nerd. She does love my Oscar Meyer with ketchup and mustard and extra mayo…

          • NOBSisdaMAN

            Ohhhhh. I’m a nerd. That hurts. Coming from the Captain of the Chess Team, I’m hurt.

          • Tommy B Low Us

            Takes one to know one fool. Let’s get back to talking about your Mom.

          • NOBSisdaMAN

            I’m sure you worship her. Best gal you’d ever get. Of course you seem more interested in farm animals.

            Nubsie, HERE YOU ARE!!!

            i knew it, whenever you get brutalized on the wolfman’s blog you come running over here to hide!!

            wanted to be on the winner’s site huh?? i FEEL you man!!

            so what’d you think of Marquis Lee’s Pee Wee Herman suit?? (do tears stain polyester?)

            “what’s the significance???? i don’t KNNNOW!!!”

          • NOBSisdaMAN

            You’d love to feel me.

          • ProbationU

            Once again…NOBs showing the value and maturity of a Trojan education.

            Also, where were Tom Brady and Joe Montana drafted? The scouts and the prognosticators get it wrong all the time, particularly Mel B.S. Kiper.

          • NOBSisdaMAN

            Stuff it. You don’t know $h!t. You’re a big mouth popping off all the time and then kissing everyone’s rear end. Too bad you only earned a GED. Putz.

          • ProbationU

            I can certainly identify $hit. It goes by several moronic names…Joe Blow, Joseph B. Lowe, NOBs, and NOBSiddaMAN. But then, you are so old, when you went to $C they didn’t have any academic standards. You probably were a legacy admit.

          • NOBSisdaMAN

            Bite me. At least I can afford to live at the beach and not in the hills of 99%ers in SD. And at least I did get a degree and no, I was not a legacy. I’m sure your soldier boy was a legacy getting his GED.

          • ProbationU

            Classy move to insult my soldier boy who defends your right to get free blue pills on medicare so your little Trojan sword can function for you while your wife is blindfolded so she doesn’t have to look at you anymore.

            You are a sad, pathetic, little old man. Fight on, limp d!ck!

          • NOBSisdaMAN

            Defended my WHAT? Give me a break. Bet the kid never went to college and couldn’t get a job. Give me a break. Bet I’m also a lot YOUNGER than YOU and STIFFER.

          • http://amillennialist.blogspot.com Santiago Matamoros

            Attacking people’s kids now?

            That’s Way B. Lowe Normal, even for you, Joseph.

            (And that’s saying something.)

          • NOBSisdaMAN

            Too bad your response was deleted before I could read it. You need to take a deep breathe and relax old timer.

          • ProbationU

            Were you trying to say take a deep breath? Even though you went to $C when they had no academic standards, I thought you would have learned something in dumbbell English.

            You are the joke of this blog. Now, time to get back to your morning shift at Hyperion.

            I’m taking your Mom to the the pony show in Mexico. She will be the feature act there tonight.

            That’s another disappointing effort, Joseph Way B. Lowe Normal, especially since you’re the one mocking chess players.

    • Tommy B Low Us

      Seriously this guy could not insult his way out of the card board box he lives in. Keep trying Hob….
      Keep Hob Nobbin away….

      • Tommy B Low Us

        Nice try Nobs. Making two different name accounts to make it seem as if someone has sympathy for you. I have news for you, no one does…

    Great draft.

    Just like every SC QB who’s gone to The League.

      Not every. We have at least one that took a knee to win the Super Bowl.

  • Tommy B Low Us

    I am glad they finally blocked that moron Trollgen Nobs. We don’t need idiots like that on this blog.
