      • WingsHD

        I wondered why a Bruin fan is spending so much time on the USC part of the Daily News. So I looked over at the UCLA part and it’s all about basketball, with a few bits at the end on football. UCLA fans still don’t believe that football is a sport so the few that do come over to USC for anything they can get because it’s all about football. Even if it is about the enemy’s team.

        • TrojanFan

          Isn’t that what a stalker does?…..creeeeepy!

        • ProbationU

          That’s because it is basketball season. An unrecognized sport at $C. Look at how few people comment on $C basketball or attend. Simply isn’t important in Trojan-land.

          • WingsHD

            Football must not be too important at UCLA either. Go look at Michigan, they have the number 2 team in the nation and they have a 60-40 split in favor of football on there site. Football at UCLA will always be a secondary sport to basketball. Can’t be a power when your not your schools number 1 sport.

          • And secondary to SC as well

      • TrojanFan

        one and done!

      • Of course he’s cleared! It was a knock off!! Another cheap screw firm Jucla.

    • ThaiMex

      You got it Nubsie…he is truly a Nice guy…heck of a baller too. Kids got a good head on his shoulders, unlike The Currently being investigated, and DUMBER THAN A SACK O” HAMMERS, Davon Jefferson. Hey….how’d you knuckle heads do in TEMPE? You know, in Basketball? Got your asses handed to you again…..just like FOOTBALL!!!!!!!hahahahahahahahahahahahahah (Somethings won’t change…like Jio tossing up another brick as time expired to seal the LOSS).
      BTW your new boy-toy boyfriend Amir sounds like he’s really sweet. You are an animal Nubsie…I never knew you preferred DARK MEAT! I hope “MONO” isn’t too hearbroken. It’s all just soooooo QUEER!
      fit on torgan!

      • TrojanFan

        same post from 3 hours ago, you stupid idiot, wake up

        Plus basketball seems easier for you to dissect, which means wrong blog

        • BRU-CREW_UCLA

          Snitching is what Trogon pyle does best…..”FYI. BRU-CREW_UCLA just won the TROLL OF THE YEAR award over on the USC blog. You guys should read some of his classless comments, he gives UCLA fans a bad name. Don’t let the guy fool you for what he truly is, a piece of shit….thanks!”

          • TrojanFan

            HA HA HA!!!!

            If you call it snitching then I guess you’re feeling guilty

            troll on!

          • BRU-CREW_UCLA

            The queen of COPY and Paste. What a waste……

      • Bet he’s balled tou

  • The Monopoly Is Over Here 2.0

    Wow, this EE class takes a poop on all UCLA commits. Case closed thai spic…

  • TrojanFan

    Spudjuice took one look at this list and drool started running off this chin….

    • Spedjones

      Paper Tiger. SCs name under Lane. And yes, very impressive crew. On paper. 38-28 was on the field.


        almost as impressive as 50-0 on the field.

  • Bill

    More 5 star third stringers who won’t crack the starting lineup under the guidance! Tell Zach Banter that he should at least hit second string before he opens up his big mouth. Where is George Farmer or Jordan Simmons?

    • TrojanFan

      Stick with the cartoons Bill!…..please stay on the porch

    • Marco

      Can you say Ellis “the blob” McCarthy, the epitome of hype!!

  • This is a loaded 7!!! Even SW can’t criticize or put a negative spin on this.

    • dtksr1 @dslextreme.com

      SW puts stuff on this crawl to get reactions (but not all the time)… He loves this back & forth across town stuff.

  • TrojanFan

    Talk about some impressive bios

    Su’a might end up playing linebacker at some point in his college career….the guy is a great tackler in space, just what we need for the read option

  • Ted

    Browne and Cravens are impressive indeed, should be a sure shot. The rest certainly look good on film. But SC better not miss on more than one…cause there are only 7!! Scholarship restriction is a killer.

    • Spedjones

      Actually, I think you’ll find Brown a product of his high school. Much like Jimmy Clausen.

  • Amir

    Fuck Wolf and fuck the bRuins!

    • ProbationU

      You are very eloquent, Amir. I have seen several of your well reasoned posts. Were you an English major or did you attend SC Law School?

      • ThaiMex

        Go easy on the “KID”…Amir Araghi is currently studying at that very fine institution known as…”The Sherman Oaks Center for Enriched Studies, located in Beautiful Reseda. Let’s give this young man (with Pimples) just a little slack. He probably hasn’t even gotten his first “PIECE” yet…(All those Goat Farms left Reseda a long time ago).
        Fit on Sherman Oaks!

  • RallyMonkeyUSA

    Wow…what a group…add Eddie vanderdoes, jalen Ramsey, quinton Powell, Hutchings, issac, falah to that list and you have an epic future starting lineup…if they can live up to expectations. Which we all know is very hard to do. Fight of men!

  • dtksr1 @dslextreme.com

    We can exhale a little of our breath. But still holding the other 1/2 for NSD, to fulfill the needs of this team. Good work, on what you do well Kiffin.
