When Lane Kiffin was a USC assistant, the Trojans often won Pac-10 games with overwhelming talent. Those days appear to be over as he enters a key stretch of the conference season.

    This new media meme that USC is going to be challenged in the Pac-10 for the first time this year is terribly ignorant of history. During the streak, USC’s biggest challenge was always in the Pac-10. In fact, other than Texas in the National Championship, the only teams that beat USC were from the Pac-10.

    Manti Te’o is one of the best linebackers in the country?
    Weird, I haven’t heard a damn thing about the sophomore. I have, however, heard that Notre Dame is an embarrassing 1-3 after beating Purdue then losing 3 straight games. I’ve also heard their defense is horrible. Again, haven’t heard jack sh!t about Te’o.
    Vontaze Burfict looks like he’ll be a 1st-rounder after next season.

  • Lane Kiffin

    Oh poor Laney … USC doesn’t have any talent now. G I might have to try coaching for the first time. Goatboy is already spinning his 7-6 season LOL

    ‘ didn’t miss a beat ( after Laney took over as OC) ‘ says Goatboy. Will dummy, we sure missed out on some gimmie national titles with yours and Suckisian’s jr. high offenses.

    JK McKay cannot fire this fraud soon enough

    Lbc trojan,

    Don’t talk shit when you clearly don’t know what you’re talking about. Manti te’o is a beast and if he were our starting mike lb we would be infinitely better off. He’s led ND in tackles from the moment he stepped onto campus, meanwhile our leading tacklers have been safetys since 08.

    You’re the kind of trojan fan that make us all look bad.

  • spedjones

    LMAO at LBC Trogan. If you’re not aware that Manti is in fact one of the best talents in college football right now, you’re seriously lost. You didn’t hear about his 21 tackles against Stanford? You must actually be trying to avoid news on him then.

  • lbc trojan

    What a terrible Trojan I am. I haven’t paid any attention to the middle linebacker for a 1-3 Notre Dame team.
    Haven’t seen anything in the news and didn’t bother looking anything up. Sorry he doesn’t preocupy my time. Should’ve known better.
    Yeah… considering I actually continue going to USC games despite the program being on probation, sanctioned with no bowl games, and having roster depth that might not last the season… yet still support the team… I’M the kind of fan that makes us ALL look bad!
    Take my degree away now!

    lbc trojan, i will tell you what Manti Te’o is going to do to barkley this year.

    Manti will walk onto the field softly strumming a guitar and singing “Dust in the Wind”. barkley and all the other trojan pukes will be reduced to a state of mournful contemplation.

    “my god,” barkley will ask. “what am i doing with my life? our deeds will be forgotten, blown like dust in the wind across an absurd desert of meaningless eternity.”

    thus thunderstruck, the trojans will stand there indifferently while Notre Dame scores touchdown after touchdown.

    so says The Gipper, ladies.

  • USC owns the Rose Bowl

    @kellfire4 NEWSFLASH: a USC fan praising how amazing a Notre Dame linebacker is while bashing a fellow USC fan… and LBC is the one that makes us look bad? You’re an idiot, screw you!

    @spedjones: How’s that 2-2 record feeling? Think UCLA is more likely to be Arizona, Oregon, or Stanford than USC is?

    FIGHT ON!!!


    Look at these Troxans — the team is 4-0, and already they’re turning on each other.

    What will this blog look like when SUC is 5-3? Or 6-5?

    Painful to live in fear, isn’t it? That’s what it is to be a Troxan.

  • lbc trojan

    @WESTWOOD: It’s called passion for football. USC fans tend to be more passionate because they’re used to having a program with winning tradition to root for. Can’t say the same for the Baby Blue Powder Puffs. You wouldn’t know what it’s like to have a consistently good football team.

  • spedjones

    the two losses don’t feel so good. the two wins feel great. Since all 4 teams UCLA’s played have been in the top 25 at one point or another this season, I think it’s about what you’d expect this year. SANCTION ON!

  • I can’t imagine a trojan fans feeling great at anytime during their four-game winning streak why? because USC has beaten teams that are worse than they are.

    Our 2-2 record may not look as good as a 4-0 record on paper, but surely considering how every trojan fan on here said UCLA would be 0-4 at this stage of the season – our 2-2 record is nothing short of spectacular, and the feeling is indescribable!!…can you Trojan fans say the same about your 4-0 record? I didn’t think so.

    Go Bruins!!

  • Bruin Rob is a Moron

    UCLA passing for 27 total yards would not be a great feeling for me. But I’m a USC fan so I see how that’d be different.
    Fight on!

  • The Monopoly Is Over Here

    Hey bruins… Tell me how my ass taste…

    Lol angry puny bruins. So fun to toy with…

  • spedjones

    haha, really? Tell me how my @ss tastes? That’s it? Cheat ON!

  • lbc trojan

    USC: 4-0
    ucla: 2-2

    lose ON!

  • @moron, we don’t need to pass the stinking ball, we Bruins just shove if down our opponents throats!! and on December 4th, you will be tasting it, you fool!!

  • Bruin Rob is a Moron

    @BruinRob, HAAAAAA!!! siiiike!!! just cuz you did it against 1 overrated team doesn’t mean you will every week!!

  • spedjones

    actually, UCLA did it against 2 over-ranked teams and then WSU. Good luck tonight trogies… I have a feeling you’ll need it.
