USC announced Thursday that Dan Shell was hired to the newly created position of vice president and general manager of USC Sports Properties.
But I doubt during his job interview he mentioned an article he wrote last March where he said USC was the “team least deserving to be in the field,” for the NCAA Tournament.
“Taking a look at USC, they lost 14 games, yes 14!” Shell wrote for

    personally, i’d like to see more items with “Southern Cal” on them. you can bet a call to Shell suggesting massive sales from a local confectioners organization may find these items appearing on shelves in the near future…(chortle)

    Bucket, you’re not even mildly amusing anymore. It is sad to see you cling to this persona you’ve got going here online. It’s sad and definitely weird. How old are you?

    owns, he and his friends were crybaby youngsters in the seventies.

    I long for the days of 14-loss hoops seasons. We’re going 25+ this year.

    Charlie Bucket strikes me as perhaps loney. Maybe we should embrace him…

    As usual, Wolfie makes an ass of himself. Have you read your own posts you clown? IS there anyone more critical of USC than you? Before you start criticizing an important hire you might want to look in the mirror. You would see a fat, bald, angry man staring back at you.

    i can’t believer how heartless you Nabobs and Bullies are. all i want is to be a part of your grand tradition. to hang out with winners. when i was young i was always picked on cause i dressed like my hero Willy Wonka. but when i saw the Southern Cal trOXans, i thought to myself, “wow, those garish uniforms are even uglier than Willy Wonka’s purple garb.” i mean, burgundy and gold? like a pimp’s lounging pajammies??

    but all i get is abuse….so from here on out, Chucker-Bucker is breaking bad…i am now Chucker-Phucker, and i am ready to unleash HELL.

    Charlie Bucket, once again, I think I’m the only one who’s going to bother reading what you just posted.

    And quick question, which is the Oompa Loompa of your preference, the green hair/orange skin Oompa Loompa from the original Willy Wonka movie? Or the little Mexican Oompa Loompa from the modern Tim Burton version?

    (chortle)……what a dork

    Nabob: thank you for your support.

    as to your question: i do not recognize Tim Burton’s insipid version of the Wonka legend. ugh, that little weirdo ruins the whole movie…and when they showed him dressed up like a woman with that ugly mug, i almost lost my cookies. i would think kids would have nightmares after watching that mess.

    now the original little orange oompas were pure class!! better songs, cool choreography, and i LOVE the way they would Freeze in a pose at the end of their dance numbers!!!

    Get a life.

    Bucket is into choreography….who knew?

  • Nabob

    As far as my support Bucket, you’re welcome.

    And thank YOU for putting forth much thought, time, and effort in your response to me!
