Morning Buzz

Even before the much-discussed Sports Illustrated article on UCLA came out this week we mentioned Kentucky and USC were the popular choices in the recruitment of highly regarded shooting guard Shabazz Muhammad. That means the magazine article is unlikely to have the impact some might predict regarding Muhammad’s recruitment.

    Fight on, Trojans!

  • The Monopoly Is Over Here

    But hear this. Shabazz’s AAU team is sponsered by Adidas, who’s preferred school for Shabazz to play for is that shite hole in Westwood. Look into the Adidas money, and you will find the slimy hand of a Bruin…

    Geez Louise!!! this kid already has eligibility “issues”. sounds like his dumbbell daddy got him mixed up with undesireables(once a trOXan always a trOXan)…the NCAA is already on the case.

    UCLA don’t want or his stage mother, Ron Holmes. they can shop him to UNLV or Southern CAL now. too bad, one year with Howland wouldda make him pro-ready. 50% chance he ends up playing with Reeves Nelson in Turkey.

    When O’Neill heard something was supposed be in the bag, he was disappointed to hear it was cash and not himself.

  • uscmike

    Way to miss the story Scott. The NCAA has warned teams that are recruiting Shabazz that there may be eligibility issues. Your competitor had this last night:

    I’d like to set the record straight on a couple of topics. First of all, i am not chucker and Chucker is not me. We are sort of like hans conreid (who’s that, you ask? check out Wikipedia) and Sean Connery, in that sometimes we sound alike, but we are totally different people. Yes, we have much in common, we are part of the same “Mutual Admiration Circle”, enjoy large breasted women, drink more than we should, and view this on going “jibber jabber” w/Torgan fans as an online version of the movie “ANIMAL HOUSE”. I “believe” Chucker is “LOCAL”, while as my “handle” suggests, I live FAR AWAY, though not as far away as YODA.
    Secondly…U-C-L-A will no longer be in the running for Shazzam’s services. They have cooled on Shazzam for obvious reasons (remember Renardo Sidney?). SUCks will continue to pursue Shazzam, like they did Sidney, but will lose out to ?????? (just about everybody).
    Finally, Congrats to the SUCks Mens Basketball team for reinforcing what many of us already know….LIMBO U, there’s only one way to go, and that’s LOWER!
    Fit on Torgan!
    (BTW….The Closing Ceremony on Saturday, with the Closing of The DRAPES, will be BIGGER than ANY OLYMPICS Closing Ceremony EVER! It’s CURTAINS!)

  • ftfo2009

    I have no idea what a torgan is, but would someone let ThaiMex know that he’s posting in a trojan thread?

  • Marky Marc

    How you UCLA fans could say that UCLA doesn’t want Muhammad because he is shady and UCLA only pursues “high character” athletes for the basketball team is an absolute pants pisser after your basketball program was exposed as lacking any morals or character yesterday.

  • uscmike

    Sorry, T-Mex, er, Bucket, I’m not buying it. Unfortunately, it might be a sign that the schizophrenia is getting worse, as Sybil, er, Bucket does not recognize the different characters are from the same person. Time to increase the medications:

    O. K.
    Just a little pin prick.
    There’ll be no more AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
    But you may feel a little sick.
    Can you stand up?
    I do believe its working. Good.

  • Trojan 70

    Amen USCMike – Bucket, Thai et are all Freddy boy. Many posts are stilingly similar in content and then Fred tries to dumb down Thai. tired act actually. Grow up Fred and get a real life!

  • W.E.B. Dupree

    I hope we have learned our lesson about guys like this. The media is already sniffing around his family’s finances. Until probation is in the rear-view mirror, we should stay away. I don’t care if we have to put an all-Amish team on the floor, just keep it clean!

    Unless “raising a barn” counts as extra benefits…

  • marvgoux

    Well said W.E.B. We need to follow Mike Montgomery’s fine example this year and win with 4 year players instead of one and doners.

  • Sam Gilbert

    Trojan 70, just so I’m up to date. Fred is Bucket and ThaiMex… anyone else?

  • USC owns the Rose Bowl

    Thai mix is probably ucla-of-the-rookies or UCLA “Dynasty” (not sure what that reefers to, teehee).

    Troll on though!

  • Trojan 70

    Hey Sam – I will let other Trojans contribute but Fred is:
    Bucket
    Thai
    Yoda
    Count
    Probably UCLA Dynasty as well

    I will let Jethro elaborate since it was his fine work of sleuthing that brought Fred out into the harsh glare of his schizophrenia and obsessiveness with all things Trojan!!

  • USC owns the Rose Bowl

    Always forget about Yoda and “Count.” Too obvious to NOT be that geek Bucket.

  • DT-89

    Kudos to marvgoux and W.E.B. — seems to me we tried the other way with talented players who fled first chance or one-and-dones just marking time … and while we fielded very good teams, after mid-strength sanctions and some bad luck, our program is in historic shambles.

    If we can consistently win 55%-65% of our games with more reliable kids from any and all backgrounds, count me in.

  • dtksr1

    The really funny thing is seeing the AD dive out of sight in being anywhere near Howland. Their President, Block, seems to think AD Guerrero is doing a great job. Tells you what Block is all about……..

  • Sam Gilbert

    Thanks T-70,

    I forgot to mention that he is also Sam Gi(capital i)bert.

  • Son of CharIie Bucket

    HAWR-HAWR!!! Thai, we are so far in the heads of these Dummies they don’t know who is who!!!

    i have been accused of being a vast array of characters, in fact i feel sorry for any new readers because if they make a good point, they are immediately accused of being someone else!!!

    it’s just like the GOP, they still can’t believe an African American is the POTUS so they cook up fantasies that he isn’t really an American or that he is secretly a Muslim!!!

    well, Nabobs, Obama is a LOCK to get FOUR MORE YEARS and so is the CLASSY CADRE!!! no matter what kooky conspiracy theories you Dummies conjure up!!!

    AUUUUUU-WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

  • Trojanfan

    Hey bucket….why don’t you put your head back in the hole and leave us all alone

  • Yoda

    much fear i sense in trojanfan.

    fear leads to anger.

    anger leads to hate.

    hate leads to suuuffering.

  • Sam Gilbert

    It’s too late to deny count Count ThaiBuck Giibert. You’ve already admitted to being multiple accounts after posting as one personality under another.

    But whatever Fred, you be you.
