Birds Of A Feather

Washington coach Steve Sarkisian is now banning the media from writing about injuries. Surely he did not get this idea from his close friend, Lane Kiffin. Of course not. Link here.

    Folks, I imagine that soon we may all need to take a break from reading this blog for a while if what I suspect is going to happen shortly actually comes to pass.

    Scott has usually been just this side of insufferable, hanging on to tired old tropes like the color of the team’s socks or the way Kiffin pronounces certain players’ names or the fact that Marquise Lee is touted as the “best receiver” when Robert Woods has better stats. His report cards and poll ballots have been maddening to the point of being sort of hilarious. But I always kind of assumed that was mostly some sort of an act, that he kind of envisioned himself as some gruff old-time radio reporter like Edward R. Murrow.

    With Scott being banned from practice and the next home game, I predict that he will cross over into even deeper levels of snark than ever before. In an effort to show that he’s not beholden to the university or cowed by their “punishment”, I suspect he will take every opportunity to dig at those who he feels have wronged him for doing his job.

    We are about to watch a bizarre play unfold in front of us, with the university trying to send a message and a reporter trying to rebuff said message. Look for any remote thread of objectivity that used to exist here to sail out the window.

    Personally, I’m surprised that the university did what they did. I understand their frustration. They want to keep the extent of injuries secret even though I personally would love to know what’s going on with the team. They want to keep practices open to the media but they want don’t want to provide competitive advantages to the teams we play. They hate that Scott told people exactly what was wrong with the kicker which maybe he heard from someone at practice or maybe he heard from someone walking down Trousdale.

    Still, they’ve stirred a pot that didn’t need stirring (in this case) and I think we’re all going to be stuck in the middle of a giant pissing match.

    Easy there Ex-Cop, you know very well how people around here take well thought out and coherent arguments. The trolls will definitely be on the attack. They’re trolls after all.

    I begrudgingly agree. While it was conceivable that Edward R. Wolf would spend this hiatus reflecting on what went wrong, he will inevitably come back more belligerent than ever. It is time to move on.

    Troolllllllllllsss!!

    You gotta pay the troll toll…..

    I’m sure Bob Condotta will never disclose the fact that Josh Shirley has plantar fasciitis.

    Learn from a professional Wolf!!! Your day of reckoning has come!!!!!!

    CLK is nodding and smirking…. Tupouuu, not Tattuuupuuu… You remember riiiiiiiight???

    This will blow over soon enough. The question is whether Wolf will still cover the games by watching TV (another opportunity for posts about DirecTV not carrying the Pac-12 Network) or whether we will see Jill Painter taking a turn with the coverage.

    Then again, there is another guy in Southern California media with a history of covering local sports — rhymes with Schmed Schmallin. Bucket, now is the time to take off the mask!

  • LovetheCapper

    Xfuzz, YOU ARE RIGHT ON! Scott will bury himself.

    BTW, Sark didn’t like Scott either.

    First Kiffin bans opposing teams from having walk throughs on the grass field and now he’s banning reporters for doing their job? I read this blog to find out things like when our injured players are expected back. Suddenly that is politically incorrect? Kiffin is becoming a two bit dictator. Haden better reign him in before Kiffin can’t get his head through a doorway.

  • Goatboy Kiffin

    Suckisian better worry about his sh*tty team not about the reports that write about on his sh*tty team. Hell, SUCK is lucky anyone wants to watch the garbage he produces on the field.
    Of course, SUCK and Goatboy Kiffin hate Wooooolfie , he been calling them out since the backstabbed Chow out of his job and USC out of 3 more national titles.

  • How does Scott Wolf keep his job?

    Gotroy – I would like your social security number and a few blank checks. Just because I want that doesn’t mean I’m entitled to it. What good does it do if I know when a certain player will return? Some programs do not let any reporters attend practice. That is the HC and ADs perogative. Kiffin/Haden could ban all reporters and it is their choice, especially if they believe outsiders are a detriment to the program.

    Gotroy….are you a troll or just a douche…..we do know the poster known as Goatboy Kiffin is the nut job from the Wild West board.

    trojan69, I’ve never seen you post here before. I’ve posted here for years. Guess that makes you the troll and the douche for kissing Kiffins ass no matter what stupid things he does. And Scott Wolf Job, are you seriously asking what good does it do if I know when a certain player returns? You really are asking that?

    CryMex… you done? or should I call the wahmbulance? Clich, yes. Fitting, also yes. Seriously, when are you gonna grow up and stop whining like a little high school bitch? You wouldn’t be half as irked about all things USC if your precious (f)UCLA bRuins could actually compete with USC on a regular, ongoing basis. Grow up or grow some balls and find a new team.
