USC v. UCLA

USC is currently No. 7 and UCLA No. 9 in the Rivals.com rankings. Scout.com, which rewards having more commitments, has the Bruins No. 6 and USC No. 10.

So here is the question: Which ranking is more important and does the fact USC is restricted mean there is validity to Scout’s formula, which I’ve previously discounted because of its quantity ove quality emphasis. Does quantity matter in the era of NCAA sanctions?

    Let me answer this one, Scottie. Of COURSE quantity counts. Depth counts. Injuries happen. Kids don’t pan out. Guys transfer, fail classes or just quit. There is no question SC has landed some very talented guys this year; even a Bruin can admit that. But it’s also clear that SC isn’t going to fill all of its holes with only 15 guys.

    Oh, but let’s wait a few more days – SC’s rankings will continue to fall as guys flee the class just before signing day. UCLA’s, on the other hand, is still getting better, including with EV on board soon.

      Go to a ruin board, lame ass and take your fruit cakes with you. Fuck off.

        Calm down. That’s not a good look on you. No need to take it there.

          Watch out fellas….AM I r is about to go “JIHAD” on us.

          (he kind of sounds like “Bagdad Bob” too). You infidels have been warned!

  • Golden Trojan

    Quantity does matter, to agree with Sped, with respect to depth issues, guys panning out. More important than quantity and Stars is getting the guys that will work for you, who love your school. SC can do quite well if they get the right guys even with the limits, 75 guys who are all in is better than 85 spoiled brats looking for any path to the NFL. Of course you have to coach them up which Kiffin & Co. have been inconsistent. Mora’s the new guy on the block, he’s got some buzz from a good first year, though I wonder once he got the Bruins to avenge 50-0, they ran out of steam. We’ll see if he can continue to motivate next season.

    • betomas

      I’ve always thought of you as a classy Trojan. I think that, like me, you are a realistic and pragmatic commenter who can see the forest for the trees, unlike a lot of deluded Trojans fans that can’t seem to see past their nose.

      • ProbationU

        That is exactly the issue with SC in the upcoming couple of years with the sanctions. Much easier to predict on RB’s and WR’s as far as development than OL, although all can be tricky. Some just don’t pan out as the level of competition improves and everyone is stronger and faster and they can no longer dominate. Others catch up as their bodies mature. Couple that with the fact that Kiffin has not demonstrated the ability to “coach up” a player and I think SC will struggle for the next few years until you can find someone tu turn it back around. With the Oregon, Stanford and a resurgent UCLA happening, SC is no longer the only game in town. The overstocking of talent won’t happen with the restrictions and others will benefit and generate momentum for the future as well.

    • USC owns the Rose Bowl

      Very interesting point about the Bruins running out of steam and whether or not Mora will continue improving next season. I think UCLA played a very good game against Stanford in the conference championship. So I wouldn’t say they exactly ran out of steam, but their heads definitely weren’t in the game against Baylor. I’d put my money on Mora improving next year and winning the South again. Then again, we’ll see how much Hundley can improve without Jonathan Franklin carrying the load.

      • Amir

        Mora will be in the NFL after next year, count on that. He could care less about Fucla.

        • gotroy22

          True, he’s another Dick Vermeil. He just came to fucla to rehab his image as a NFL flop.

          • DV

            LOL, how are all you guys loving the wonderful “presents” your beloved Cheaty Petey left you? Too funny to even read your comments and think that he gave a sniveling rats ass about your glorified community college. You think he cares about you? or $C? No, all he cared about was making sure his players were taken care of! keep Lane Kiffin for as long as possible, he has done more damage than any of those sanctions hahaha, I mean, he is the best coach you guys have ever had, don’t even forget 10-2!

            You sound so knowledgeable about the USC coaching history are you sure you are not a USC wanna be? Consider coaches prior to your short lifespan and I am sure you will apologize to Mr. Mckay. John Robinson, and some even older. You are to young to post a plausible argument.

          • BRU-CREW_UCLA

            look at the bigot attempt to sound eloquent. Mckay was coached in the 60′s and 70′s. Who cares about 40 and 50 year old stats? Mckay was a great coach, Robinson was a good coach, big difference. Paul Hackett and John Robinson were shown the door, “thanks for coming, here are some token sc paraphernalia gifts.” Robinson’s second coaching stint at sc had it’s “one shining moment” other than that, he failed big time.

          • http://4chan.org/ m00t

            >Lane Kiffin is the best coach USC has ever had

            ಠ__ಠ

            Are you actually defending this statement?

          • BRU-CREW_UCLA

            I agree. Kiffy should get a life time contract. LoL!!!

          • http://4chan.org/ m00t

            He’s already coaching like he’s tenured…

          • BRU-CREW_UCLA

            Another brain dead idiot has been allowed to make an internet mess of it’s self. Last time I checked Mr.Richard A. Vermeil won a ROSE BOWL & SUPER BOWL. I’m sure kiffy would trade professional accomplishments (or lack thereof in kiffy’s case) with Mr. Vermeil.

          • gotroy22

            Are you denying that Dick Vermeil left fucla for Philadelphia after his second year?

          • BRU-CREW_UCLA

            is your level of understanding parallel to dumb-mir? I know he left. I also know he did the BRUINS justice. He WON!!!! He his a ROSE BOWL / SUPER BOWL CHAMPION COACH. He did alright for himself and the teams he coached, no matter how long or short the tenure. Do U deny these facts? U were trying to take shots at both coaches because of their connection to UCLA and missed the mark.

            When U win, your options get broader, ask sneaky, cheaty Petey.

          • gotroy22

            Vermeil left you in the lurch and you didn’t go to a Rose Bowl for 7 more years and you lost to us 4 straight including the 49-14 humiliation in 1979 while a wet behind the years 32 year old Terry Donahue learned on the job. That began your decades of hiring on the cheap.

          • BRU-CREW_UCLA

            U still wanna talk Vermeil, really? Why? Let’s talk Jim Mora. Who gonna beat sc, mora, mora and some mora….

          • TrojanFan

            Hey crewless, after we pound your pathetic ass in football, can we all take a shit in your mouth to plug it up….just asking!

          • BRU-CREW_UCLA

            your gaping a$$ cavity makes it impossible to pack u ; then seal U shut and that’s unfortunate.

          • TrojanFan

            your rebuttals are weak at best……is there a ghost writer in the house

          • gotroy22

            It just seems like your school never makes a concerted effort to compete at the top of college football. Vermeil was your last decent coach. Donahue was a bargain basement hire who could never win a national title. The last 3 before Mora were clowns. Will Guerrero do what it takes to keep Mora? I don’t think so.

          • TrojanFan

            Exactly!!!!….now you can expect crewless to respond back with some lame-ass reply trying to deflect the truth…..typical ruin troll….Spudjuice might beat him to it, that guy is on 24/7 patrol

          • gotroy22

            He couldn’t understand that fucla only can keep a decent coach 2 years before they bail and then their cheap administrators go for the cheap assistant.

            like a said….. Plagiarizing Bog Pirate….

          • Spedjones

            I would disagree with this, but could obviously be wrong. He was in the NFL too long, I think, to leave again so quickly. Reports are that he’s enjoying the energy in CFB much more than he did in the NFL. Now, I’m not saying he won’t ever leave, but the feeling is that he’ll at least stay 3-4 years.

        • BRU-CREW_UCLA

          funny how tons of sc fans are eagerly awaiting the day Mora bolts, (no pun intended San Diego) he’s not going any where any time soooooooooooooooooooooon.

          • http://4chan.org/ m00t

            I hate the guy, but don’t want him to leave, and yet think he will leave. Mostly because the guy is a dick.

          • BRU-CREW_UCLA

            Is Kiffy “the guy” or are U talking about the conjoined buffoons “HER-MIR-RA” & “Trogon Pyle?” which would mean U hate those “dumb clowns”

          • http://4chan.org/ m00t

            I actually have no fucking clue who you’re talking about; try using real words/names once in a while.

            I’m talking about Mora. When UCLA is good it’s good for the PAC-X (8,10,12, etc). If we’re not good enough to beat you, it’s our fucking problem; making your opponent worse doesn’t make you better.

            Although I do think he’s gone in 2-3 years, well before the extension is over.

          • BRU-CREW_UCLA

            Man…..if U your question were not so ambiguous we would not have these issues. Stop wishing my Coach away. When he leaves, he leaves. I’m sure he will leave us in better shape than he found us. UCLA needs a new AD first. All Pac 12 schools have deeper pockets now and money talks. Money talks to potential AD’s and Coaches. We will be fine.

            As for names…..amir = HER-MIR-RA and Trojan fan =Trogon Pyle.

          • TrojanFan

            BRU CREW= BRU BALLS……ouch! that must hurt

          • http://4chan.org/ m00t

            All good points – I’ve been saying the same thing about Guerrero for years, I have quite a few UCLA friends. I don’t want Mora to leave, a new coach is always a dice roll, and good UCLA is good for USC.

            “Trogon?” I dont get it. I never for “toejams” either, or better yet why Bruins are even on this page. You morons have your own Daily News blogger, go F w/ him. You’ll never see me on that page.

          • BRU-CREW_UCLA

            U need to get a ticket and stand at the back of the line. I’m busy clowning other sc numb nuts right now like “HER-MIR-RA” , “Scrapes / trogon pyle” and blow fish joe to name a few. Go read my older postings and U find a reply to your dumb-ments. they’re only 3 sc fans on this blog who have originality and U ain’t one of them.

        what??? :o You can not possibly be the “original” USC O T R B.

    • gotroy22

      Quality matters with the RBs, WRs and DBs because those are positions that 5 star freshmen can immediate contribute. Quantity matters with the OL line. We need bodies and we are right now only getting 2OL. That’s going to kill us for the next couple of years because very few OL can step in as freshmen and compete against teams like Stanford. You have to age OL like wine. It takes years to teach technique and have the 18 year old grow into their bodies.The NCAA knew this when they dropped the 15 recruit limit on us.

  • Amir

    We will have a top 3 class and potentially the greatest class ever. Trust me Wolf, you know nothing.

    • gotroy22

      The greatest class ever? Have you even been paying attention to the decommits this week?

      • Amir

        I think we close with EV, Powell and a surprise beast. That along with the Hatcher recommitment, in terms of Rivals’ rankings, will put us at over 2900 points. The highest ever was 2929. Additionally this will be the highest star average in their history. That to me makes it the greatest class ever, even more impressive because of the BS sanctions.

        Now you go pay attention.

        • gotroy22

          I hope you’re right!

          • Amir

            I hope so too, haha

        • Spedjones

          dude, you’re on crack. You’ve lost EV and will lose at least 2 more. I’m sure there’s a surprise in there, but even if you had 15 5* kids, that’s still 15 and not 25, so any claim to the greatest class ever is hyperbole.

          • Amir

    • BRU-CREW_UCLA

      your are missing the point.You lack the cognitive ability to respond appropriately to the topic.There isn’t room for your juvenile ANTI GAY remarks. “Slowly back away from the computer right now.” U need more than a Top Class. How did that preseason #1 ranking pan out? Allow real football fans, with realistic perspectives on the state of sc football to comment. U R one more dumb post away from trojan fan aka Gomer Pyle status.

      It’s about a Great Coaching staff, players who embrace the teachings of said coaches and executing those lessons learned in practice on Saturdays. Right now, sc seems to be lacking most importantly at the head football coach position. 75 committed, well trained guys could get the job done.

      UCLA is trending up first and foremost because of the Head Coach ability to get 100 % commitment from the guys to do what is asked of them regardless of the outcome of the contest.

          • BRU-CREW_UCLA

            All BRUINS should refer to “HER-MIR-RA” as “HER-MIR-RA.” Trogon Pyle and HER-MIR-RA has to be one in the same. Otherwise, if these 2 morons are the class of sc fans, look out! Oakland Coliseum at south centrols. LoL!!!

            All TROJANS should refer to BRU CREW as “crewless.”(aka penis breath), spudjuice and crewless has to be one in the same. Otherwise, if these 2 morons are the class of ucla fans, look out! Oakland Coliseum at south centrols. LoL!!!

      Interesting comparison to “Bagdad Bob”. Sounds just like the guy…

    As we saw this past season (and we’ll probably see in future seasons) depth is a huge problem. Quantity is invaluable. That will be something USC is battling long after the sanctions have been lifted because it’ll still take a few more years to create a sufficient amount of depth.

    That being said, I am still very impressed that with the limited number of scholarships available, USC’s class is still rated so highly. Regardless of how this past season turned out, the coaching staff is to be commended for putting together this group of recruits.

    • gotroy22

      I was hoping with Lee and Woods breaking out we could compensate for our OL woes with skill players. Losing Woods early is going to hurt.

      • http://4chan.org/ m00t

        Maybe practice squad player of the year Farmer will break out.

        • marvgoux1

          Is he still on the team?

          • ThaiMex

            You mean FIVE STAR RECRUIT Geo Farmer? Not all FIVE STAR recruits are deserving of having FIVE STARS. Certain qualities cannot be measured (recent SUCks FIVE STAR RECRUITS include Dillon Baxter, Prater, Ambles, Scroggins, Barney, and James Blake…who’s he?). Saying one recruit is better because he got FIVE STARS is like saying SUCks is a better school because it costs more to go there than UCLA (EVERY RECENT PUBLICATION I’ve seen, show’s UCLA ranked FAR AHEAD OF SUCks in EVERY SIGNIFICANT CATAGORY).

            UCLA will have no problem filling out it’s team with quality recruits and the Coaching department is SOLID. Same can’t be said @ Fig Tech.
            but fit on anyway!

          • Marco

            You can’t name any Fucla five star recruit because the program doesn’t sign any…. Ellis McCarthy was one, but he’s turned out to be an overweight bust…good thing SC dodged that bullet….

          • ThaiMex

            You my friend are EXACTLY RIGHT! 100% Exacto Mundo!
            It’s guy’s like Hundley, Barr, Zumwalt, McDonald, Marsh, Jones, and the greatest THREE STAR RECRUIT EVER…Jonathan Franklin who make the GREATEST DIFFERENCE. I believe COACH ‘EM UP” is the saying I was looking for. Who’s gonna “Coach ‘em up” @ SUCKS?

          • Marco

            Nice try, but according to Rivals, Barr, Hundley, Marsh, Jones, Zumwalt, and Franklin were all FOUR STAR RECRUITS which tells you that 4 and 5 star recruits are what make a difference in taking or keeping a program on top, so hate on…..

          • ThaiMex

            READ THE POST AGAIN….comprende? Never said any of those guys were THREE STAR…..except FRANKLIN!

            I never said you did, just clarifying for you, the fact that Fucla’s winning wasn’t centered on THREE STARS since your battle cry is “COACH ‘EM UP’…..NOT!!!

            The guy wasn’t hurt, what a convenient excuse. He started training camp at over 370 pounds, never got in playing shape….he looked like a guy pulling around a loaded trailer, quite the contrast to Williams, a freshman All American

            Unfortunately, I went to a couple of practices in San Bernardino with a friend who has a son that plays for fucla, but what does that have to do with anything, you’re an expert on all SC, and I doubt you attend any practices. The fact is the guy is on his way to being a bust!

    Recruiting wars continue apace, with both schools hauling in killer classes this year–both will finish in the top 10 on all three key sites (ESPN, Rivals, and Scout), and depending upon which Southland university does better between now and Feb 6, one could finish in the top 5.

    Schollie-limited depth could be an issue for the Trojans, but quality of players certainly won’t be. Their average recruit is at 4.3 stars on Scout–they are the only school in the nation to average in the 4s. The biggest enemies of UCLA next year: 1. RB questions – No Franklin, with a potentially less-than-100% Thigpen (torn ACL in SC game–guy runs a 4.3 40); 2. A very difficult road schedule, with away games vs Nebraska, Stanford, Oregon, and USC.

    With their brutal SOS, the Bruins will be fortunate to win 9 regular season games, as will the Trojans.
