Last-Minute Switch

Here’s a story on defensive lineman Pia Vatuvei’s late switch from USC to Washington.
“I spent (Tuesday) night focusing on USC and Washington, and I felt good this morning making my call,” Vatuvei said. “I’ll be a defensive end at UW. It excites me because Tosh is a defensive line coach who sent two of his ends into the NFL the last two years.”

    The last line says it all. Tosh is doing his damn thang…

    He left out the last part of what he was thinking. ( I won’t have too compete as much because USC has too much talent and I know I am not as good as those other guys, so Washington was my place. )

    I normally wouldn’t point this out but since Scott is willing to hold up an interview over “Christian Tatupou,” I must point out that “Pia” Vatuvei is still a man–PIO.

    I’ve never seen two coaches get some much attention and love for doing ABSOLUTELY nothing than Tedford and this Tosh Lupoi character. Can someone please tell me what these two clowns have done the last eight years, aside from getting their asses kicked by USC, home and away, and by UCLA at the Rose Bowl. They remind me of Obama. What has he done? Except really screw this country up. The bottom line here is if they were really that good, Cal’s football program would not be the embarrassment that it is. Now that Lupoi is up at UW, what that program go down the toilet as well.

    @Jack— Leave Obama out of this. The kid couldn’t hack it at USC, so let him go to UW. Let’s revisit this in three years and see if the kidhas made an impact or not. As for Obama… he took a crappy economy left over by Bush and is turning it around. Created more Jobs in 2 1/2 years than Bushy did in 8. Pulled out of Iraq. And oversaw the killing of Osama Bin Laden. Me thinks you are an idiot.

    Nice move, Jack, to bring up politics on a sports blog. I always say the two topics you have to raise when talking sports are politics and religion. Maybe you can share your views on Romney’s Mormonism versus Gingrich’s Catholicism versus the Republican base’s Evangelism. I’d really like to hear what you have to say about that.

    Regarding Pio and Tosh… has dude ever heard of a guy named Ed Orgeron? A guy who coached such notables as Warren Sapp, Russel Maryland, Cortez Kennedy, Mike Patterson, Shaun Cody, Frosty Rucker, Sedrick Ellis, and more. Tosh may be a smooth talker, but my money is on Coach O when it comes to developing D-linemen for the National Football League. That’s okay though. We have enough DEs, we need some tackles!

    Thor51, I can assure you that gratuitous Obama-bashing is just part of what makes Wolf’s blog Wolf’s blog, along with BruinRob’s butt drawings, the guy who steals other people’s handles by using a capital I in place of an L, and NOBS boasting of staying at the finest hotels on the Pac-12 circuit. The majesty of this mosaic may not be apparent at first.

  • USC owns the Rose Bowl

    Hahaha, W.E.B, you’re definitely allllllll outta bubble gum!!!! (chortle)

  • How does Scott Wolf keep his job?

    I’m not sure what the deal is with this Vatuvei fella, but no one better say a damn thing about Calvin Coolidge.

  • NOBS

    Hor51 & Webfoot, it’s obvious you two are part of the 99% freeloaders. Perfect fit for a bRuin “such a deal” fan. So how long does Bush get bull$h!t for our economy? About as long as MG gets the screw job for anything negative at SC. At some point, you have to stand up and take responsiblity. Waiting for Haden AND Obummer to do that. But I’m sure a 99%er doesn’t comprehend that. Beg On.

  • in sheep’s clothing

    that was really boring and unrevealing. was hoping for something more interesting. i guess following tosh will have to do. wonder what mom thought about pia zadora(shot at wolf, not pio) not staying close to home.

  • marvgoux

    Thor, Obama isn’t turning anything around. The nonpartisan CBO report released yesterday says things are going to get worse, not better. Unless of course you think higher unemployment, higher taxes, no economic growth and crushing debt is “getting better.” And why can’t you accept that some kids go to other schools and wish them well? Stop making cheap shots at a 17 year old who had a tough deceision to make. Show some class.

  • BruinRobsMOM

    Thor.. Even my son agrees that you really need to pull your head out of your ass you fucking moron!
    How stupid could you possibly be to post that rediculous bullshit? Damn! You’ve just got to be plain old ignorant! Incredible! What f’n country have you been living in this past decade? Why am I even wasting my time scolding you? Your even more incredibly stupid than Robs father’s (the 6th fleet)was! So STFU!

    jack and Thor51 opened the Trojan blog to political discourse so I will take my turn. Stay the hell out of my way !!! Thor51, your opinions of Obama expressed in your post are those of a Pagan Marxist Habitual Premeditated Liar, yes, YOU.

    After quickly solving the Clinton recession, the nation’s economy for the next 7 of Presidint Bush’s term in office was without recession. The meltdown of FannieMae-FreddieMac in the summer of 2008 began the recession that President Obama has turned into an on-going depression with unemploment at 16.4%, exceeding 20% several Marxist Democrat states. Two Democrats, Senator Dodds and Congressman Franks, initated, condoned, and perpetuated the basta*rd FM-FM scheme until the nations banks faced bankruptcy. It’s elected Democrats in both Houses and Obama who have SUCKED our country down these past 3 and 1/2 years, years filled with corruption and criminal unconstitional behavior. Thor51, you lied.

    Next up, “Obama has created more jobs in………”. No !!! Obama has eliminated over 6 million jobs since he took office and we are still counting. Thor51, another lie.

    General Petreas (SP?) won a great victory in Iraq during Bush’s Presidency, converting a nation financing and supporting Moslem terrorism to the most stable pro-West Moslem country on earth, while Obama was bitch*ng about Bush and our presence in Iraq. Thor51, an ugly piece of SPIN to give credit where credit is not due.

    The US Navy Seal Team 6 with the assistance of other American miltary agencies killed Bin Laden. Obama watched. Obama can take credit for Bin Ladens death but he can also take credit for the colossal military FU that killed 26 Navy Seals in a never should have happened helicopter crash on his watch.

    Thor51, if the Keystone Pipeline is ever under construction heading south, you be sure to take sureshot along, stand in the Pipeline right-of-way, and have a Union Construction Worker, it will only take one, run a shovel up ya’lls a$$.


    No Thor51, not a Myth god, not Budda or Allah, but the ONE TRUE GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob !!

    FIGHT ON !!!

    FIGHT ON !!!

  • LanceKiffin

    The only time I want to see God references on this blog is people talking about the old “God is a Trojan” buttons. Respect beliefs, but we don’t need to broadcast them.

  • USC owns the Rose Bowl

    Thank you VERY MUCH, LanceKiffin. I don’t want to have everyone else’s religious and political beliefs shoved in my face on a SPORTS BLOG.
    Thanks and Fight On.

  • W.E.B. Dupree

    Thor51, see what I’m saying?

    It’s always amazing to see someone with the political mindset that “everything we do is good and everything they do is bad”
