Answer Wednesday! (Part 2)

In this segment, recruiting and O.J. Simpson are among the topics:

Q: marvgoux

Has USC’s recruiting been weakened by the shocking 7-6 season?

A: Recruiting usually does not suffer from one bad season. Sometimes it works in reverse and you get better recruits because they think there is more playing time. I have to add, though, that UCLA is now a player again under Jim Mora when it comes to recruits. And one analyst told me USC’s received some recent commitments that do not seem to the level that would be expected the past couple years.

This is a big recruiting year but a lot of it will matter more once Lane Kiffin’s fate is known.

Q: Spedjones:

Does Eddie Vanderdoes’ sister still have a scholarship offer and will that influence Eddie as he appears to be wavering from ND?


A: The last time I checked she still had a scholarship offer. It would look disastrous to withdraw it merely because her brother went to another school. New coach Cynthia Cooper could always say it was Michael Cooper’s offer if she needs an out.

Q: Karla

Scott, my boyfriend says OJ Simpson was the greatest Trojan of all. Considering his college, pro, sportscasting, commercial endorser and movie careers, so you agree he is the all-time greatest Trojan?

On a similar note, if he is ultimately exonerated, do you think he will ever be welcomed back onto the sidelines for games?

A: I don’t think he can be remembered as the greatest Trojan simply because all his accomplishments have been overshadowed by his legal problems. Even if he wins his current appeal, I do not see him being welcomed back.

I was at the Orange Bowl in 2002 when he attended football practice. He was generous with his time and I spoke to him for about 15 minutes. USC officials initially thought it was great and then experienced a severe national backlash. I can’t see them doing it again.

    There it is proof Scott actually talk to somebody that had something to do with USC Football. I thought that was limited to Bucket in his Barkley jersey

    O.J., The TWO kunckle Draggin’ women beating SEVEN (7) Footers, plus a drunk FIVE (5) Star Tight End, and a spittin’ & gropin’ Rinning Back…..all together for ONE NIGHT….we’ll call it “RUMBLE IN THE S.C. JUNGLE”, and hold the winner takes all event at The Coliseum….The competition will include Punching Tackling Dummies, Running thru an obstacle course (Police chase simulator), The LAPTOP Toss, and “Spittin for accuracy” (similar to Darts). Tickets will SELL OUT (just like the S.C. academic standards)! At LIMBO U, there’s only ONE WAY TO GO!
    fit on torgans!

    • ucla could have Billy Don Jackson, Darryl Henley etc for the same thing you slopespic.

      • ThaiMex

        what’s a matta wit chou? Couldn’t find anything current or anything within the last 15-20 years? Heck..I didn’t even have to mention Dr. Seuss characters Ting 1 and Ting 2, or last years starting fullback (ex-con) who was released from custody on a Wednesday and started your game on Saturday.

        You dummies got no game!

          Interesting, because your “game” is stuck in repeat mode. Focus on the candy sales, Willy needs more coin.

          Fuc the crotch, how about three kicks to the cranium, and well deserved

    • Charlie Bucket

      MAN, Thai!!! after a few quiet days, the wolfman opened up a can of WHOOOP A$$ today!!!

      Southern Cal is going down the toilet, Cadre is running wild, wolfman has his crotch kicking shoes back on…..somebody PUNCH ME, i mean somebody PINCH me, i must be DREAMING!!!,

      • Jethro G Sabbath

        That Whoop A$$ was on you because he failed to give you the answer you so desperately wanted with your ridiculous question.

        • Charlie Bucket

          Jezro, you are so desperate these days, that you seemingly can’t even read the most basic comments without the content being distorted into some conspiracy!!!! i suppose Karla has got to be me or Missy Conboy!!

          Jezro, i must reiterate my concern that you may not be cut out for the rough and tumble world of big time Pac12 sports blogging!!!

          • Jethro G Sabbath

            Okay sure, everybody believes that you are not Karla.

            What about the fact that Wolf’s answer was the equivalent of shoving a gumball up Karla’s a$$ ?

          • Charlie Bucket

            Jezro, you have officially gone the Leonard Tose Route!!

            you just insulted a woman in a low, despicable manner out of sheer rage, jealousy, madness or all of the above!!!

            apologize while your soul is intact!! (and it’s barely hanging by a thread after you spent the last weeks defending the people who ripped the mentally challenged kid to pieces).

          • TrojanFan

            REALLY LAME!

            Go put you head back in the hole, idiot!

            …..and take two hard kicks to the crotch for being a 8===D

          • Jethro G Sabbath

            Oh really? Show me where

          • TrojanFan

            Karla is your right hand, don’t confuse her for thaibean, your left hand

      • TrojanFan

        What he was really saying:

        Southern Cal is going back to the top, Cadre is running on empty, TrojanFan has his crotch kicking shoes back on…..somebody PUNCH ME, i mean somebody PINCH me, i must be having a WET DREAM!!!,

        • betomas

          LAAAMEE, Dude!! Just step aside and let others that actually have wit and writing skills take on CB, or ignore him altogether. You do real Trojans fans a disservice.

          • TrojanFan

            What does it matter to you, you’re not even a fan of USC athletics, idiot!

            Run along, your’re late for work, Mr. Inside Info

            PS….If you don’t like what I have to say then go troll the blog you truly represent

          • betomas

            The truth is, you don’t know anything about me, but I know a lot about you and I have ways of finding out more. While we all know that at 47 years of age (as of a month ago…April bday, eh?) you are the top pos(t)er on this blog (loser status…no life), you didn’t even attend USC, your idea of fun is spending hours on end on Fantasy NASCAR, you were the equipment manager (AKA waterboy) for Allan Hancock Jr. College, you’re a Boise St. fan like your bro-in-law, you live in a 4th rate Vegas “suburb”…shall I go on? Or do you care to deny any of this? Are you gonna stay mute like last time?

            Fight on, BandwagonFan!! Cheers from Hawaii, where I’m currently doing business!

          • TrojanFan

            After reading your post, you truly don’t know anything about me. I threw you a few bones and you ran in the the wrong direction, idiot.

            The art of deception is really screwin up your perception, you are out in left field. Nice try, it reconfirms what we all know about you

    It’s got to hurt our recruiting with our head coach on the hot seat. Haden should have ended the misery after the loss to the Irish.

    • dtksr1

      Agreed, take your lumps and get over the bleeding ASAP. You would think Haden would be smart enough to see this, but now you wonder if he is just sitting back with his multi-million dollar paycheck. I’m waiting for him to gain weight like that career State-employee bean-counter across town. This is a dying ship with the media watching Kiffin, drooling all over his eventual kill. Meanwhile, this becomes more about Kiffin than the team…. not good.

      • gotroy22

        Knowing I’m paying my tax dollars to fund Guerrero’s daily visits to Fat Burger makes me sick. Every day Kiffin is retained as coach is another day delayed in rebuilding the program back to the days of Pete and Norm.
