Should Have Called Floyd

Peyton Manning blew off a surprise meeting attempted by Pete Carroll according to
this week’s Sports Illustrated.
Here’s what Peter King wrote:

“One more surprise: Manning got a call informing him that Seahawks coach Pete Carroll had flown, unannounced, with Seattle G.M. John Schneider to the airport in Englewood. Carroll would do whatever Manning wanted–talk for a while in Denver or on the plane to Arizona, his next visit, or fly him to Seattle for a lengthier discussion.
“Peyton Manning does not like surprises. He said no thanks. Carroll flew home.”

Why didn’t Carroll call his good friend, former USC basketball coach Tim Floyd, who is so close to Manning that the quarterback worked out at USC during the summer of 2007 during a visit to Los Angeles.

    This is where I come in (and the rest of my cadre of trolls, of course) to claim superiority and state the obvious: UCLA is better than USC on the football field!
    I mean, duh.

  • The Monopoly Is Over Here

    When Carroll called Floyd, he said to meet at a dinner and to bring $1,000 dollars (to pick up the billz)….

    Scott you have to let go of this obsession with Pete Carroll. You have Lane Kiffin to focus your un-natural interests on now. Let Pete go, it’s time Scooter, let it go.

    What’s bigger, John Holmes dick, Pete Carroll’s ego or Obama’s ineptitude ?

  • Jethro G. Sabbath

    I don’t know. Are Carroll’s ego or Obama’s ineptitude over 14″ long?

  • Bruin Rob

    ThaiMex we should just stop coming here. It really makes us look like losers and UCLA, in general, look worse. But I guess this is what our lives consist of? (sigh)

    Let’s TROLL on anyway…

  • BUAHAHAHAHAHA stupid ass Pete Carroll thinking that he could just meet with Peyton Manning when he feels like it? BUAHAHAHAHAHA

    You know what’s awesome??? is that the Cadre outnumber the USC supporters on their own blogs…sorta like when UCLA basketball outnumber their fans in their own arena.

    Ohhhhh, I forgot THIS IS our blog. Duh!!

  • Son of CharIie Bucket

    OMG….well, Jethro has officially gone off the rails. completely gone. Thai, contrary to what Faux Bru-Rob’s recommendation, this blog needs us more than ever!!!

    with NOBS down, Jethro rendered coo-coo, and WEB having lost his will, the Nabobs have de-evolved to fixating on Gay Porn fantasies!! double OMG, not even NOBS was this bad, and that’s saying a lot!!!

    i am actually starting to worry about Southern Cal. these guys just aint right.

    moment of reflection: could the Cadre have been too effective in psyching out the trOXans?? to the extent they have collectively snapped??? wow.

    Bruin Rob said:
    ftfo2009, we can agree to disagree. In regards to the players being arrested, I realize it’s not violating any NCAA rules – but personally, I find it to be an unfair advantage when a schools turns the other way and ignores all transgression by the players, when UCLA kicks off a player off the team for being accused of grabbing her ass, even though he was dating her, and some dyke who liked her attacks him – E.J. Woods and Woods grabs her by the throat in self defense, and UCLA gives him the boot…or the three players UCLA kicked off school for that lap top they stole from a locker, the lap top was recovered, yet all three players were gone. So what I’m saying is shouldn’t our schools be held to higher standards than those of Miami U? we all want to win games, we all want our teams to be successful, and when USC ignores rape arrests all that other crap it doesn’t look good, hence the term used loosely “win at all cost”…it seems our schools have two different standards of conduct, thus USC becoming more attractive to kids with a savage-like mentality that go there because they think they can do whatever they want without paying the price…but, it is what it is…in all honesty, I wish UCLA would adopt that same “win at all cost” mentality.

    …..I actually said something THOUGHT-PROVOKING, CIVIL, AND INTELLIGENT? Hm, I must’ve been high. Can’t do it everyday! Back to TROLLing!

  • Jon

    Nah, Bruin Rob, that wasn’t a very intelligent post.

    Because your b-ball squad started a laptop thief, and your b-ball coach allowed a thug to remain on the team for 2+ seasons until comparable players arrived to take his place.

    Ignoring abusive players and rampant drug abuse. That’s winning at all cost. That’s the UCLA way.

  • ^^^exactly, that type of behavior is not tolerated at UCLA, which is why many have called for BH to be fired after all the allegations that came forward and coupled with not going to the dance 2 of that last 3 years, but our football teams was the topic.

    Jon, a.k.a. Sam Gilbert, Bruin_Rob (I’m sure you know) is an impostor BruinRob (no space) is the real one.
