    I knew there was a reason why this team was ONLY scoring 42 points a game

  • Sam Gilbert

    And where is USC in total points vs. Division I schools?

  • USC owns the Rose Bowl

    Ummm yeah. Come back in November. Thanks for the worthless stat Wolf, you putz!

    2 games?!? auuuu woooo? lol

  • Does a bruin CRAP in the (West)woods

    This whole gloom & doom act is getting old Wolf.

  • LAWYER JOHN

    Is it possible that SC does so much good on 1st and second downs, that it does not have many 3rd down situations?

    Nah, that can’t be it. Wolf must be right. Heck, just ask him.

    @LAWYER JOHN: It’s a good Q. # of 1st downs is more important than 3rd down conversion % since it doesn’t really matter when you get the 1st down but USC is down from 24.58/gm last season to 18.50/gm now.

    Pathetic stat for the self proclaimed offensive guru. It’s big play or bust for Goatboy’s ‘ dink and stink ‘ offense. Wait until next year with the expirence and talent gone. It will be 2006 revisited. Remember that crappy offense led by Goatboy.

    Durrr herp you guiz have dumb offense, u didnt use enuff smurt playz against hawai and syracuze derpp.

    Good point retard. But good for you that you somehow think Marquise will be gone next year. It’s not like he’s a sophomore now or anything.

  • Goatboy Kiffin

    Lee will be on crutches … probably this year and next.
    You don’t think D will be teeing of on those bubble screen guys.
    The Dink and Stink offense smells

  • ftfo2009

    I’m not sure you read my post properly fucktard. Or maybe you don’t really understand the purpose of those bubble screens.

    And that offense looked pretty good last year when we dropped 50 on you. But whatevs. nbd.

  • ftfo2009

    But as always, the only comeback needed is that you should really shut the fuck up, empty your bank account, and bet it all on Stanford. If you’re not doing that then you should probably do what Black George Bush says and shut the fuck up.

  • Goatboy Kiffin

    Betting on Goatboy Kiffin to cover … is about as safe as jumping his sk*nk without a cover

  • ftfo2009

    I obviously meant if you keep talking shit about how we’re gonna lose, you might as well bet on Stanford to lose, straight up, not on the spread. And if you don’t have enough conviction to do that, you need to shut the fuck up.

    And to think that SC actually bettered that number this week with it’s 6-12 performance. Don’t think it’s an important stat? All but one time the 3rd down conversion lead to a drive resulting in a TD.
    -3 of those conversions were TD plays.
