    he should stay

  • NOBS

    He had a chance to win the Outland next year. Also a National Championship. I can understand going pro and getting the money as opposed to all the school work and practice that goes on during the year without being paid. But you’re only young once and maybe he was “partied out” at SC. BUT, when you talk to a guy like Ron Yary, he’ll tell you just how important that time is as SC. And a guy like Kalil will make BIG dough whether he leaves this year or next. I mean how much money does a guy need? In any event, MK was a great Trojan and I wish him the best.

  • spedjones

    Of course not. Take the money and run.

  • lbc trojan

    He made the right choice. Barkley would make the wrong choice (kinda) leaving. Offensive lineman wouldn’t necessarily be recognized for winning a natl title… a QB would. Good luck, Kalil!

  • USC Anteater

    Didn’t you hear him? He said it was a once in a lifetime opportunity. Kind of like having a chance at playing as a Trojan in a BCS bowl game.

  • The Monopoly Is Over Here

    Had to go pro. No brainer. Next up!

  • TrojanPete

    He did the right thing. His value cannot increase anymore and he is a true NFL talent. Best wishes to Matt–he was/is a great Trojan.

  • huntingtonharvey

    Right decision. Wouldn’t have improved his position at all and plays a physically demanding position susceptible to injuries. There are no records to break for a LT either. I definitely would have left if I were him.

  • steve49

    He will do well as a pro. He would have done well next also, along with some hardware and another year of great memories. Only young once. Oh well, best to ya Matt.

  • JustinMCrane

    I wish he would have stayed, but he can’t improve from the #1tackle in the draft.

  • OldTymer

    Of course I wish he had stayed, but I think we can all understand his decision. I certainly wish him all the best…

  • Cade McNown’s Handicapped Sticker

    He is a top five pick in one of the highest rewarded position in the NFL (other than quarterback), and, more importantly, he is healthy.

    No brainer.

    Good luck, Matt.


    What did the Big Guy pass up by not coming back to ol’ SC?:
    1. Getting laid by another 20 or so girls;
    2. Downing another 500 beers;
    3. Listening to seniors bragging about getting $100,000 jobs at graduation;
    4. Being yelled at 1000 times by position coaches;
    5. Wishing he had enough money to take a girl out on a real date to a fancy restaurant;
    6. Hoping he did not get injured, thus spoiling his chance at a $30,000,000 pro contract;
    7. Hearing the SC fight song 10,000 more times;
    8. Listening to ND and uckla players complain about how SC is overrated;
    9. 5-months of practice drudgery without getting paid; and
    10. Watching less qualified pro players on t.v. drawing millions

  • Jon

    Wrong decision for Kalil? No.

    Wrong decision for the USC football team? Yes.

    USC is worse off without him, but he’s much better off going pro.

    Good luck, Matt!

  • marvgoux

    we can’t have it both ways- come play at SC and be prepared to be a successful pro, and then tell them they can’t leave or else they are disloyal. If any of you were told your junior year that you would get a million dollar bonus if you left school a year early for a job you would all jump at it. Give these guys a break, they are great Trojans and deserve our support whatever they decide for their careers. At SC we don’t lose great players to the draft, we reload.

  • steve49

    Hey Lawyer, I bet the first two really weighed heavily.

  • lbc trojan

    Uhhhhh… LJ…. he can do that as a pro too… lol

  • TrojanInMichigan

    Can’t blame him for going, he has nowhere to go but down. I think watching Jonathan Martin’s stock drop somewhat may have had an effect on his decision. I also think he has the personality where after the CBS leak came – probably some know-nothing agent – he was pissed and decided to end the whole charade, which would have continued through next season too.

    He left the program in better shape than he found it. Good luck Matt.

  • Would you rather make a million dollars today, or would you prefer to make that million in one year? Duh!!!

    BTW…”How Does”…. I got my Bowl Game tickets…Section 126 / Row N / Seats 1-7 see yvou there Buddy!! šŸ™‚

  • lbc trojan

    1. How Does didn’t even comment on this post.
    2. This isn’t a USC-UCLA thread… no one cares about the Mac n Cheese bowl.
    3. Why are you instigating some type of response from him when you claim others start it?
    Go to a Fucla blog!

  • lbctrojan, instigating? How Does is found posting on every thread under different handles ..perhaps it’s you? Anyhoo mind your own business.

  • NOBS

    Sup y’all…duh duh. I got my bowl tickets today. Just in time. We ran out of toilet paper. Seriously, can anyone really believe the Slob bought 7 bowl tickets at $110+ each? hahahahahaha. What a liar. What a joke.

  • NOBS, it was you? it would be an impossibility, even you being the best pan-hadler in the business couldn’t muster up that kind of dough, luckily for me though, it was just one-fourth of one of my recent commission checks…no big deal NUBSY.

    Have a nice day sweetheart, and enjoy that super-duper gigantic cucumber that you should be getting via Fed-Ex today, compliments of your truly…but remember, you’re not exactly a featherweight, so when you slam that booty down on it, make sure your butt partner “How Does” is holding it flush with your booty slam, otherwise you might break it, and find yourself all plugged up, and God forgive, there’s already enough shit coming out of your mouth.

    BUAHAHAHAHAH NOBS “schooled” again!!!

  • lbc trojan


  • ^thanks…lbc Trojan.

  • insideSC.com

    BROinRob… how’s all those anal fissures of yours???

    how does anybody explain a 50-zip loss? fUCLA hasn’t had a 50 point game since 2007…. hasn’t shut anybody out since 2005.

  • @insideCUM, regarding the 50-0 score: it was a serious asswhoopin NO DOUBT. I’m more impressed by the 50 points scored by SUC than the actual points allowed by SUC vs. UCLA…UCLA could have easily gone for three easy field goals, including one on that last drive they had at the 4 yard line, but why? just to say they scored three points? really? 50-0 or 50-9 what’s the difference? a beat down is a beat down…however let it be known UCLA drove, they just couldn’t score TDs, field goals would have been as thrilling as kissing your own sister…although for idividuals such as NOBS, it would be a thrill – for HIM. That sick basTURD>

  • NOBS

    SlobDusky, NOBODY cares what you think about the game. However, about kissing your sister, you’d know all about that….and kissing your brother as well. I’ll bet your were the king of “Good Night John BOY”.

    BTW LB, FU. I’ll bet you’ve kissed SlobDusky’s urn too.

  • NOBS, how’s that El Gigante Pepino (giant cucumber) performing for you? I hope you haven’t slammed your booty on it so hard that you broke half inside your ass…I guess we’ll know tomorrow if the Pepino Gigante (cucumber) held up under such duress by NOBS, the “fat basTURD”….”fat basTURD” LMAO

  • NOBS, you’ve been “schooled” again

  • I’m thinking of taking a two week break from Scott Wolf’s blogs, but I’m afraid that some of you might miss me too much…any thoughts?

  • USC Owns the Rose BowI

    NOBS, you are being brutalized. Don’t make is worse by ttrying to respond. Let it go. Maybe you should take a break from the blog for a while. You make some good observations, but your attacks on others are just lame and make us look bad.

  • USC Owns The Rose Bowl – I agree with you 100%, it’s actually getting kinda boring brutalizing him.

  • NOBS, you’ve been “schooled” again

  • NOBS

    owns, I mean SlobDusky, it is obvious you are one in the same. A total tool. Scotty answers EVERY question I submit becuase I AM AN INSIDER. You are a tool. Take your five slobs and jam it. Now, on to my Christmas album for the SLOB.

  • Yeah NOBS, anyone that tells to STFU for your own good is all of sudden me with another handle. What a goof ball you are…when will you introduce something new in your battle NUBSIE? aren’t getting tired getting you teeth kicked in on this blog? do you keep coming back so I can provide you with more cucumbers? aren’t people usually more giving during the Christmas season? why is you can’t collect enough money to buy your own long, green, firm, juicy cucumbers? maybe you should change your sign to read “will stick a “pepino” in my culo for food”.

  • NOBS

    SlobDusky, pass the urn. Stop giving your little slobs a physical (cough, cough) and be a MAN. Leave the board. You have been schooled by EVERY poster (other than yourself under different names), INCLUDING Scott. ROFLMAO. Bet those 2 new slobs would love nothing better than to come forward with what you’ve been doing to them…..just like the Penn St. kids.

  • NOBS – just as I said you have no originality, you posts are repetitious, boring, and predictable, they are not funny whatsoever, you can’t seem to reply to me without the usual “urn” and “little slots” LMAO you’re truly retarded…I’m almost sorry for kicking your ass so much around here…NOT, you’re my bitch.
