Will Matt Barkley Go In The Fourth Round?

The Jaguars still need a QB and have the first pick of the fourth round. This does not exactly bode well for Lane Kiffin telling future players to return for their senior season.

    What!…….no lame a$$ bucket comment yet….hahaha!

    USC has a predictable conservative offense. Is that due to the coach or the talent? Next year will tell. Guys should go to the NFL when the time is right for them at their position. You can’t fault the guys who stayed last year. It looked like they were set up for a great season. Didn’t work. Why is a mystery that will play out next year.

    • Ben Factor

      IMHO, in some ways, it wasn’t conservative enough, in that it over-emphasized the pass and under-emphasizes the run.

      What made it predictable was not its conservatism. It was the de facto OC’s lack of self-scouting, counter-tendency strategies, and effective in-game adjustments.

      Adding a faulty OL, and you got what you got.

    Scott, I will admit I’m a booster that’s known you for over 10 years. Like most others I know, I do not like you. Here is what I think:

    1. It really is disgusting that you revel in Barkley’s pain ( yes, I think he’s getting what he deserves, but that is not something to celebrate)

    2. Without a doubt, you are the worst beat writer for SC. You are leagues below Gary, Lev and the previous Todd H. It’s obvious you enjoy others that fail, which is what has happened to you.

    3. If NOTHING continues to go right for you, it is the karma you out out and deserve

    I wish you nothing but the worst.

          The rah rah control freaks want to shut Scott down. Luckily for us he has a thick skin and isn’t a kiss up like most of the media today that self-censor to curry favor with authorities.

      I have met Scott in person as well and while it may not have been for 10 years, he his what he is.

      One shouldn’t come here to analyze football, learn breaking news about USC football, or a “behind the curtain” look at the program. His blogs don’t offer any of the 3.

      The blog is designed to do nothing but ATTRACT TROLLS. Scott has chosen quantity over quality and just likes having responses and boosting SEO rankings while stooping to any level.

      Even with that, I even wonder if the trolls are real. Its no secret that Bucket is more than 3 of them. For the others, none of them even seem to know where the UCLA campus is.

      one last thought you forgot to add:

      Scott, despite all this, i hang on your every word and comment incessantly!

      return constantly to terrible restaurants you do also?

      herh herh herh!!

        YoDick, I think you meant to insert “Yo Duh hangs” instead of “I hang”

        Fuking lame!…please please please get the head checked out

  • http://www.facebook.com/charles.bucket.3 Charles Bucket

    wow. its bad enough the Cadre has spend the week crotch kicking the Pious Passer, and now the NFL and the Media have thrown him under the bus as well!!!

    but the unkindest cut of ALL is the trOXans have now turned on Pious Passer and left him to the wolves!!!!

    I know the Cadre is ruthless, but even by our standards, that’s COLD!!!

    for crissakes, EVEN the lowly DUMMIES are piling on now!!!

    just proves ONCE AGAIN, it not trOXan for Life, it’s TrOXan for NOW!!!

    • TrojanFan

      I don’t know which is more lame, your new eye patch or this post

        I won’t even ask how that eye got “shot out”…LOL

    • Cheap seats

      Your obsession with Scott Wolf’s crotch has surpassed stalked levels. Did you remember to register on the Megan’s law database?

  • Ben Factor

    I think Scott is not being fair to Kiffin on this one. I remember distinctly after the UCLA game in 2011, when Kiffin stated: “He’s gone. He’s a top-5 pick, and he’s gone.” If Matt’s NFL evaluation after 2011 told him the same thing, then he chose to ignore the general advice of PC, which Kiffin has echoed.

    Kiffin has plenty to answer for, but not this.

    On the flip side, it couldn’t have hurt for Robey to have come back for his senior year.

    • Cheap seats

      Can they change their mind if they aren’t picked up by anyone? Or is their scholarship already given to someone?

  • Independent_George

    3.) It doesn’t bode well for any coach telling a kid to return for their senior season.

    4.) It doesn’t bode well for Kiffin’s recruiting efforts. Whether or not it’s Kiffin’s fault (Matt is not a first round talent in a league that is transitioning to read-option QBs) the kids are going to ask what happened to Matt Barkley.

    5.) Scott does suck. Hard. Worst sports beat reporter in America.

  • LamontRaymond

    I feel worse for the honey badger. Much bigger entourage to support on non-1st round cash. Matt won’t have that burden.

  • http://twitter.com/reknigh Robert E. Knight

    I don’t know why some of these idiots on here are always slamming Scott. Scott does a fine job. Telling the truth hurts some of the sunshine pumpers. Kiffin is just a loser. How can you go from Pre-Season #1 with the Heisman Frontrunner to what we ended up with. Haden needs to go with him.

  • Bill

    Hopefully, Max Browney is watching his future unfold. He was Max Turd on the line and Lame Kitten calling the plays! Hello, fifth round pick! Keep on Kiffin On!

    • TrojanFan

      CARTOONS!

    • TrojanFamily

      Max Turd? What are you, five years old?

  • Guest

    MB7 falling to round 4 or 5 is big news, and Scott is covering it appropriately. We all thought he was a Top 5 pick and pre-ordained Heisman winner before the season started. To now say he doesnt have 1st round talent is an admission that we were all very very wrong a few months ago, This is the site i rely on to get the real scoop on usc sports, not biased sunshine pumping spin. Keep up the good work Scott, plenty of us out here appreciate you!

    • http://www.facebook.com/charles.bucket.3 Charles Bucket

      right on!!

  • Spedjones

    On the up side, looks like Matt will have plenty of time after his short NFL career to go on SC-promoted humanitarian trips.

    • Golden Trojan

      With several million in the bank….not a bad life!

      On the up side, spudjones took a step out of the closet

  • SonOfWestwood

    Even though I’ve spent the last four years learning to despise this young lad, even I can be compassionate enough to feel badly for him. He and Woods should (and maybe even TJ) should file a joint lawsuit against the worst coach in College football. I hate to say it, but Id rather have Dorrell than Kiffin as my HC.

    • Cheap seats

      Dorrell was actually a decent coach and beat us once. The guy just couldn’t recruit. Neuehisel was the other way around.

      Looks like your Spring Game today will be more fan interactive. Kudos to Mora for changing the format. He said his tarket was 40,000 in attendance. I don’t know if he will hit that mark because I haven’t seen much marketing about it, but you never know. Weather is good today for tailgating.

      • SonOfWestwood

        We’ll see how it goes today, but at the very least, things feel different under this regime. I’m happy that the Donahue era is finally over.

        The same feeling will wash over Trojan Nation after this season when Coffin is fired. I don’t know who you’d get, but if I’m Jeff Fisher, I’d rather coach in LA than St. Louis.

  • Golden Trojan

    4th round pick, Joe Theisman. 6th round, Tom
    Brady. 10th round, Roger Staubach. 17th round, Bart Starr.

  • jkstewart2

    Barkley is getting tarnished by the failure of his coach. I hope that he has the opportunity to go to a team that has decent coaching and players. QB’s get too much credit and too much blame.

  • http://www.facebook.com/yo.duh.31 Yo Duh

    where is the Pious Passer, hmmm??

    curious, his disappearance is!

    before, even on vacation would he always take a camera crew along to film him.

    Mr Irrelevant he was about to become, i sense!!

    but to me, Mr Pious he will always be!

    herh herh herh!!
