    congrats trOXans!!!! this infusion of gritty, undersized, never-say-die Rudys will no doubt inspire the trOXans to new heights!!!

    Cal Bears, kiss your furry butts goodbye!!

    i can hardly wait for the trOXan fans to start chanting for Joel “Schoolboy” Chacon to enter the game!!!

    they’re not booing, they saying “schooooooool-boy”!!!

    oh, Chucker-Bucker, you’ve DONE IT AGAIN!!!

    5 guys to help the program get better…

    What a terrible thing. These guys know that they have a snowball’s chance in hell of playing. But maybe they will move on to coaching youth or high school or GA someplace.

    ThaiMex got Bucket’s obscure reference, and it only took four minutes…shocking!

  • Bruin Rob is a Moron

    4 mins from Charlie Bucket to CryMex then 1 min to RuinSlob. Interesting.

    I told all of you that you would pay, and you didnt believe me. You chose to mock me instead. You have now paid for your disrespect, learn now to not mock me and my greatness, and you will suffer no futher consequences.

    do not forget it

    Way to keep it classy Scott. Taking a cheap shot at the walk-on’s is pretty low.

    Just remember when a not so talented writer from an undersized and not so respected newspaper got pushed around by the head coach, until the bigger, more talented and more respected local and national media came together to stick up for the little guy. I would think you would be a lot more supportive of guys like this.

    I have nothing but respect for guys who walk on at big time programs… and UCLA too. These guys tend to get big ovations when they get in at the end of games, as a salute to the hard work they put in. You pull your Hot Pocket out of the microwave and choose to fire off your evening “these guys suck” post.
