Why has USC’s offense struggled so much this season?
“They don’t adjust to what the defenses are doing,” said a former Pac-12 coach that asked not to be identified. “The question to ask if you face a new defense is, what do you do from an adjustment standpoint?”

    No sh*t. Tell us something we don’t already know. How about having an OC in the press box who can see everything the D is doing and make adjustments. The middle with the TEs should be a go to all game.

  • aztroy

    I totally agree, to pay a guy three million and cant make simple adjustments(overrated). High school coaches could make better adjustments than that. I guess his ego gets in the way. Fight on though.

    HAWR-HAWR!! sweeeeet scooopin’, wolfman!!

    the Cadre has always maintained doubling the wide outs is the way to go agains Southern Cal!!! force the running backs to bear you!!

    add a little pressure on the Pious Passer, and you end up with a toothless old puddy tat!!!

    wow. this season may end being the BIGGEST FLOP among the trOXan legacy of monumental BCS flops!!

    dont worry Pious One, lots of fourth round draftees have gone on to productive careers in pro ball!!

    Let’s see here, which former Douche bag coach would give Gargamel the time of day and actually talk to that loser?

    Gotta be the Weasel….

    How many years… how many games did Lane Kiffin observe what PC & his staff were doing during halftime… how many? Is Kiffin so convinced that whatever gameplan he creates, it will succeed no matter what the other side is doing? That is so naive it becomes insane if true! Seems he & James Cregg are preventing this offense (and ultimately the whole team)its ability to adjust and be successful. If this persists, Kiffin will never go undefeated and have a chance for a NC. I have seen this before… a young HC does his thing because of his ego and then realizing it is handicapping the team, hires a OC. How long will it take Kiffin to realize this?

  • spedjones

    the 4-1 team across town, on the other hand, has been excellent at half-time adjustments. Mora schooling Lame in that regard fo sho!

    So how in the fuck do you explain 50-0…ouch!!!……just what I thought

    Bucket….You sure don’t put very much thought into some of the shit you post

  • The most potent offensive attack is coming from an L.A. school, #1 in the nation in total Offense, and the “other” L.A. school is #81 – 80 spots below…who would thought the #1 offense would play in Westwood, and the #81 offense at South Central?

    Or that the best QB in L.A. would be playing for UCLA? #34 in the nation in QB rating and Barkley #51, really?

    Or that Brett Hundly would be #10 in Passing yards and Barkley would be #56, really?

    Or that Jonathan Franklin (#3 in the nation, Silas Redd #65) would have more yards than you two RBs combined?

    CLEARLY, your 3-1 record is a facade, good luck beating Utah this week.

  • Trojanfan

    Hey slojones, what happened in the 3rd quarter of the Oregon St, that’s right a big “0” on the scoreboard, you were shut out, nice adjustment

  • ftfo2009

    BruinRob….save it for November. Your schedule sets up pretty nice until the end of the year.

    There are a total of 120 teams playing big boy football, with that being said, the Bruin have gone up against the #119 and #110 ranked defenses

    What happened at home against Oregon, there D is ranked #66 and the Bruins could only come up with 3 total rushing first downs, plus they were shutout for 2 quarters

    At least Stanford’s D is ranked in the top 20

    CLEARLY, #1 in the nation in total Offense” is a facade, good luck beating any team going forward

    Another bruin troll putting is foot in his mouth

    PS…If you have the #1 offense in the Nation, than why the low ranking, given the numbers you posted, you guys should surely be ranked above the Trojans….I smell fraud in the air

  • ftfo2009

    I actually think the Utah game will be interesting for the Bruins, because I’m not sure (I have watched like 1 quarter of ucla ball) if they match up well against the Utes. We’ll probably know more by Friday lol.

  • Marky Marc

    Typical lack of bRuin reading and statistical comprehension. That link above shows UCLA is #1 in net yards, not “offense.” That is still impressive. But when the number two and three teams on that list are Nevada and Marshall, doesn’t that give you pause? Alabama is #49 in net total yards, and they still seem to be doing pretty well…For that matter, Oregon State, the team that BEAT YOU, is #106, well below USC.

  • ^^^ good points, as for UCLA’s lower ranking for UCLA as opposed to USC, it’s very simple, UCLA has to prove themselves and only winning with consistancy will erase any doubts. But our success up to this point, has not made us Bruin fans, think for one minute that we have a superior team than USC’s, yet. Until USC loses some conference games, and continue to win, not doubt it’s USC title to lose.

  • Bruin Rob is a Moron

    Ouch, bRuinLob got ROASTED, I’d say!

  • Bruin Rob is a Moron

    I love when Charlie Bucket defends UCLA football. It’s like young children when they say “Not uh! ya huh! not uh! ya huh!” with no real substance to the argument. Ha, for some strange reason, USC continues to be recognized as a top football program, so why bother trying to bring down SC fans, Bucket? We have WAY too much to be proud of as fans of the Trojans to care what a UCLA football (lol) fan thinks!

    AUUUUU WOOOOOOO though!!


  • ftfo2009

    Interesting points bruinrob. I don’t really think we’ll know how good UCLA is until the last two games of the year. We’ll know they’re good, but I don’t see much in terms of great teams before then.

    Also, your incorrect use of commas in your post makes me nauseous.

  • BiII

    To this commenter who goes by the name Bruinrob Is My Idol, if you are going to represent my school then do so intelligently, not with your useless and irrelevent statistics. Do not let me catch you doing this again. My school shall not be represented by a dolt.


  • Bill

    Six weeks ago, you had handed Barkles the Heisman and SuC the National Championship without even playing a game. Plus, there was talk that UCLA would be lucky to win 3 or 4 games! Now, you are crying and whining and making lame (kitten) excuses because you suck! What a joke!

    SuC On!

  • steve49

    BIll says “My school shall not be represented by a dolt.”
    WTF!! Take a good look in the mirror you idiot.

  • ftfo2009


    Six weeks ago the only asshole who was guaranteeing a heisman and championship to USC was Charlie Bucket. So go talk to that dickhole.

  • Bill, STFU you psychotic nerd. Learn football before you let your finger do the talking you 8===D wad.

  • Trojanfan

    Bill, please stick to the cartoon network and flipping burgers

    PS….i have yet to hear back about the waffle breakfast sandwich

  • BiII

    Show respect to a person that is better than you. I have more money than all of you combined and have earned it, that is what a UCLA degree will do. And I also know way more about the sport of football then you do, my winnings from betting on the sport would vouch for that. Do not ever question my intelligence again or you will pay consequences.


  • LovetheCapper

    Bill, I do. That’s why I don’t respect you.

  • USConquer

    Scott, would you be man enough to admit if it was Pete Carrol who made those comments? I doubt that you would have the cojonones.

    I challenge you.

    Fight On!!

    In the photo accompanying this post, it looks like Randall Telfer is clearly being held.


    is averaging 35 points a game considered to be struggling? Its not easy beating everyone 50-0.

  • ftfo2009

    What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? Ill have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and Ive been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and Im the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. Youre fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and thats just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little clever comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldnt, you didnt, and now youre paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. Youre fucking dead, kiddo.
