Answer Monday!

No surprise that recruiting continues to be a dominant topic for the readers.

I see where Jordan Payton, the WR, says he lost interest in SC cuz of the scholarship limitations. Assuming he is telling the truth, I’ll bet other guys felt the same way. To me, this makes KIFFINS’ recruiting job these past two years just all the more remarkable. Do you agree, Scott, that he has done great, and where would you rank this years’ class?
As an aside, you know of course, speaking of Jordan, that if you just reverse his first and last names, you come up with another great name in the field of sports.
Another aside, you know of course, that Loel Schraeder died recently at the age of 87. He covered west coast football since the mid 40s, and bled cardinal and gold. Just before he died, he said re Farmer, that if he didn’t get his grade changed, he would be on academic probation, but still allowed to participate in Spring practice. Think ol’ Loel made a mistake here, Scott? Anyway,it just goes to show how active and interested he was right up till the very end, my fellow Swordsman.

A: Jordan Payton lost interest in USC because USC was no longer interested in him. The coaches felt he did not show improvement after his sophomore season. Now if USC had 25 scholarships, maybe it would sign him anyways. I definitely think they would sign Jaydon Mickens with 25 scholarships. I think Lane Kiffin’s done a very good job recruiting. But like Kiffin, I thought USC fizzled at the end with Andrus Peat and Kyle Murphy going elsewhere.
I already wrote at length about USC getting involved with Murphy late. That is the only real weakness I have seen with Kiffin. Otherwise he has done a nice job.

Do you think Nelson Agholor will end up as our running back out of this class?

A: He will be a spot tailback or situational back in the way Lane Kiffin wanted to use George Farmer. But I think he will also be used at wide receiver.

    This isn’t acceptable and I’ll keep posting it. I’ve tried emailing Wolf before but that ass-clown does nothing. Maybe embarrassment and humiliation will eventually set in for BruinRob/N0BS.

    Speaking of killing yourself, have you heard the REAL story of why Super Mario Danelo killed himself? I read on the internet his secret life as a gay prostitute on Santa Monica Blvd was about to become public. So the dirty little coward took the chicken’s way out! But, I read the male prostitutes on Santa Monica honored him by doing the “Missing Fag” formation as they lined up on Santa Monica Blvd! HAHAHAHAHAHAH!
    GAME OVER!

    @N0BS (BruinRob), funny how only when people ignore your nonsense and NOBS (with the letter O) talks about your “wife”…suddenly..N0BS (with the number 0) shows up to bash Mario Danelo. It’s not funny, it’s not even sad. It’s beyond pathetic.
    I never hope for anyone to die but if you really did lose a wife to death, I’m glad your sorry ass gets to live with it every day. You’re a worthless piece of shit taking this sports blog way too seriously and you need some social interaction in your life. Walk away and try asking yourself what your purpose is. If its to make UCLA fans look disgusting, you’ve done a fantastic job.

    I’m sure the UCLA student-athletes you cheer on would be proud.

    Bruin Rob is a Moron.. thanks.. hopefully someone with a little power and responsibility will see your plea…

    Now. regarding the late great Lowell Schrader may he rest in comfort and peace!!.. and to even invoke his name on the same scribe sheet as scooter wolf, is an injustice as the scooter is not fit to have even carried Lowell’s colostomy bag!

    Payton Jordan, a blast from the past. A star athlete at USC, and brilliant track coach at Occidental College. No one ever put on a track meet like he did.
