Battle For L.A.

Dennis Dodd of wrote a column today on USC and UCLA.
Here’s an interesting excerpt with Rick Neuheisel:
“ `I know there were a number of kids that had opportunities because there were limousines sent to their homes by SC to come visit,’ Neuheisel said. `A number of kids that we ended up signing were on the phone saying, ‘I don’t want to get in this car. Tell the driver to leave.’
“That would be another juicy, controversial addition to Kiffin’s NCAA resume if they, in fact, were limos. Neuheisel quickly corrected himself saying the vehicles were “town cars,” which are allowed by the NCAA.”

    Oh, Slick Rick!! That New Weasel? …Same as the Old Weasel.

    Too funny.

    When is Neuheisel going to figure out that he’s a CFB coach, not a high school girl in drama class? All his talk is laughable if he can’t back it up on the field. You want respect…try earning some, Slickster!

  • charlee bucket

    Isn’t this the kind of stuff that the SEC came down on Kiffin for?

    All this from a guy who has gotten canned twice, once for numerous violations and the other for gambling. What a pious piece of s**t.

  • Mike

    JAG. You’re wrong. New Weasel IS a high school girl in drama class.

  • SoCal Native

    Didn’t I hear this same story told almost the exact same way after the 2009 signing period?

  • Trojan Conquest

    Seriously, what was the point of this comment? He lies, then he corrects himself. And fucla doesn’t send town cars for recruits. Talk is cheap, and if he doesn’t start winning soon he’ll be gone.

  • NOBS

    Nuuweasel is la la crappy in drag.

  • Free_Thinker

    And the queen of scoops, the supposed journalist, perpetuates Neuweasel spin by not challenging the fUCLA coach-praganda and calling him out on the point.

    A town car is generally a common production vehicle used by professional transportation services. A limousine is typically understood to be a customized vehicle desigened to carry large groups –well, most of the readers, unlike the “professional journalist” would know the distinction.

    No wonder people disdain Neuweasel…and Wolf.

    Funny how Kiffin comes out of that story sounding like the mature coach talking about discipline and hard work while the other guy can only make false accusations at his rival program. I guess it’s because his on the field record is WEAK. 10 seasons and 77 wins is pretty bad considering he inherited 2 winning, ranked programs and left them disasters to which CU and UW have never fully recovered. Kiffin may not have much of a history but he did improve the record of both teams he inherited.
