Summer Rules

Summer always brings out some standard cliches of football. Here are four that come up every summer and will no doubt be story lines going into training camp:

1. The players are benchpressing more weight than ever.
2. The team is closer than last year.
3. The players lost a lot of weight.
4. The quarterback’s arm is stronger.

    oh wolf…you really are the worst.

  • gotroy22

    #1 is the most used cliche by a landslide,

  • How does Scott Wolf keep his job?

    5. Wolf’s reporting and journalism skills worsen.
    6. Wolf gains even less access to the football program than last year.
    7. Wolf sneaks into the locker room to sniff jock straps.

    5. Even Bruin fans are optimistic right now.

    @How Suck it you ingrate!


    I am soooooo obsessed with UCLA that I want to remind Bucket that he GUARAN-F’ING-TEED the bRuins would win the CWS and bring home a champeeenship just like he GUARAN-F’ING-TEED Fucla hoops would! (chortle)


  • Revenge of Charlie Bucket

    i would remind trOXans that based on the number of top teams who make it to a the CWS, it is the equivalent to making it to a BCS Bowl game!!!

    UCLA has now made it to two out of three CWS without winning the Champeeenship!!!! so based on Southern Cal’s criteria, we now have us a baseball DYNASTY!!!!

    so sugar sweeeeeeet!!!!!


  • Bill

    Around the Southern Cal camp, it is Barkley is overthrowing more receivers than ever!


    I know it’s not healthy, but I got the biggest thrills out of UCKLA baseball losing again last night. The Florida State bunt with the bases loaded, the fool UCKLA third baseman overrunning the ball, allowing two runners to score, was priceless.

    I didn’t used to root so hard against UCKLA but the ugly UCKLA posters on this blog make it easy to dislike UCKLA.

  • marvgoux

    So true LJ. It’s always fun seeing the powders choke. And luckily they didn’t show SC baseball on television this year so we had no basis to compare the hapless ruins to our even more hapless team.

  • ThaiMex

    Paralegal…..Yup…I agree, getting your kicks out of watching/hoping U-C-L-A lose is probably not the best way to spend your life…but I sort of understand your plight. You can’t really root for SUCks, because they usually finish UNDER 500 and are almost always out of it, this late in the season. What’s a big guy like yourself to do after countless “Torgan SWORDFIGHTS (w/mono, owns and nubsie) in The Jacuzzi”, and attending performance after performance of “THUNDER DOWN UNDER”? You must be EXHAUSTED you big silly brute!
    fit on Torgan!

  • ftfo2009

    ThaiMex, if I were you, I wouldn’t make fun of another team for finishing under .500. Just saying.

  • scidiot

    #5 The best scoops come hanging out on your apartment balcony scanning the internet.

  • I DIg Go Go Girls


    ZERO baseball NC’s
    ZERO BCS games


    ucla lose, lose lose !!!

  • Trojan 70

    Fred conveniently forgets the Trojans have won 12 CWS. Hell, we have won more than the baby bruins have even attended. Your right LJ. I used to root for Pac 12 teams in situations like this, in fact I still do, but not the baby blue pansies. Oh CerritosLob, you lose again and again…


    Bucket, how queer, USC can claim not one but TWO (yes, two!) AP champeeenships during that “dynasty”!!! Weird, how many can Fucla claim?!? LOL!!!!! oops… chortle


  • Globe

    ThaiFred – Let me get this straight. You spend half your life trolling an SC blog and yet you don’t think enjoying a rival losing is a productive use of one’s time?


    Ps. Trojan 70 FTW It’s just too eeeaasyyy


  • Jethro G. Sabbath

    ThaiFred – chortle


    Yup, no response, ROFL! Or he’ll come back with how busy he was with his confections lol


  • Revenge of Charlie Bucket

    AP Champeenships??? HAWR-HAWR!!!

    name one coach who starts the season saying “our goal is to compete for the AP CHampeeenship”!!!


    well, maybe the trOXans do!! (chortle)

    yeah i hope UCLA wins the NIT next year!!!! its our GOAL!!!! HAWR-HAWR!!!!

    i’m sure there are some trOXans out there who cringe when the AP Champeeenships are mentioned….only serves to remind of the STRIPPED TITLE. ouch!

  • Trojan 70

    ^ weak Fred, very weak. Your are now as bad as your buddy, little bruin rob. Did you know he stands a whopping 5’6″? How tall are you Fred? I think it is just little guys with inferiority complexes that troll here. Wanna be Trojans but couldn’t make the grade…

  • Globe

    The AP was crowning national champions for decades before the BCS was invented and will still be crowning them decades after it’s forgotten.

    One day people will look at record books and say “What the hell does BCS champions mean”?

    They’ll also say “UCLA actually went to the Rose Bowl a few times. The last time was way back in 1998”.

  • Trojanfan

    Bucket is a fuckin idiot…..troll on little man, but i hear you stand tall when you’re up on the flagpole


    Now now Bucket, don’t go misconstruing what I said! Can you please copy & paste where I said it was USC’s “goal” to win the AP? Pretty sure I said “we can claim” (two AP titles) unlike Fucla. Though, Globe does make a great point!

    That’s OK Bucket, troll on anyway!!! AUUUU-WOOO!!! LOL


  • Revenge of Charlie Bucket

    i think most would agree the Nabobs continue to unwittingly validate my point. i also find it very queeer that rather than outright declare they will win the true BCS Champeenship, thay rally around the AP as if it were something other than a booby prize!!!
    obviously, trOXans know their only shot this year is for a Paper Champeeenship!!

    sigh—and what on Earth are these idiotic comments?? up on the flagpole??? i never claimed to be the smartest man in the world (top 20?) but around here i feel like Stephen F-ing Hawking!!!

  • Yoda

    true wisdom from Bucket, this is.

    horse and buggy, some still use,

    but better, they are not!

    much fear from the trojans i sense.

    what do they fear, hmmmm?

    loss of the AP Title?

    herh herh herh!

  • Jethro G. Sabbath


    Remember, the Bruins grand total of one half of a football title is also a “paper championship”.
    Also, how is that “furious run at the CWS going”? I imagine you must be pretty excited about the final coming up. Do you plan to be in attendance to witness the fury?

  • Yoda

    Jethro, my ‘lil green ass, you can kiss.

    besides, a Dynasty we now have!

    an illustrious club, this is!

    jackets, do we get?

  • ftfo2009

    Dafuq did i just read

  • Trojsteve5

    The ‘ruin people are not worth the effort in a give and take bashing. Trojan supporters get to the real area of concern which is a pathetic baseball and basketball program at this time, plus a going nowhere fast track & field program with both genders. Women soccer was lame totally after winning a national title a few years back. Talk about choking this athletic year, women golf, women volleyball, women tennis, men volleyball, women water polo, women basketball losing at home to WSU in Pac-12 tourney, 1st rnd, and men golf finishing 15th while hosting the ncaa in L.A. The athletic dept. needs to be held accountable for closing their eyes to the situation.

  • ThaiMex

    Torgan Trojsteve V….There is iron in your words….fear leads to suffering,
    suffering leads to pain
    pain leads to hate…
    Hate leads to CHEATING and NCAA sanctions, and Mike Garrett as your A.D.
    Mike Garrett as your A.D. leads to, a drunk Basketball coach, sub 500 records in Baseball and Basketball, Transfers, Ineligible athletes, STEROIDS, Conversations w/ GOD, and pretty soon…’s CURTAINS!
    fit on though!

  • usc50ucla0

    fUCLA’s only NC (1954)came from the now defunct UPI poll. Team didn’t even get to play in the Rose Bowl. Coach died in the arms of a prostitute… at least one lil bRuin passed with a smile

  • Edward

    Bucket/Mex: If “hate leads to CHEATING”…you have to be the biggest f’n cheater that ever lived.
