    Great pick up. USC gets Guzman, and UCLA gets Vanderdoes… Fitts at DE, Vanderdoes at DT, and Barr coming around the end. Your “dynamic trio” of QBs can already smell the turf on the Coliseum floor coming this November.

      DREAM ON!!!!!

        Dream on? Dude, do you read the Internet or watch ESPN? Vanderdoes is a Bruin, and will be playing this season. Dream on. Gutty little Trojan is so cute!

        • Joe Blow

          So you got some fat kid. You’ve won twice in what, 11 – 12 years? Who cares? BTW, you may think you OWN the RB, but try playing in the REAL Rose Bowl game someday.

          • UCLA Owns the Rose Bowl

            Sore loser.

          • Joe Blow

            Oh, are you sore? You’re the only loser here.

            I tell you what, I will seriously consider changing my user name if one of you guys would “man up” and admit that SC is no longer the team to beat in either the Pac-12 South (that would be UCLA, back-to-back champs) or the Pac-12 overall (Stanford, Oregon, and UCLA all with better programs and coaches).

          • TrojanFan

            We are all laughing at your pathetic a$$…Go troll the ruin blog, you might find some support.

            If anyone needs to “man-up” it’s you, change that ridicules user name
            …..IT’S LAME!!!!

          • Joe Blow

            First of all, you did NOT win back to back. You were given the first one, so admit that. Second, I admit that Oregon and Stanford are both better. No doubt. BUT, we are still SUPERIOR to Fucla. You’ve won 2 f ing games in 12 YEARS! Are you stupid? BTW, I could care less about your handle.

          • UCLA Owns the Rose Bowl

            I will give you the first P12S championship. However, we won the championship outright last year by completely man-handling pUSC at the RB (just ask Barkley, who was completely outplayed by our “unknown” freshman–a game that seriously hurt his draft stock). You are no longer superior to UCLA–we beat you last year, we have a higher-rated recruiting class this year, better coaching (come on, Mora vs Kiffin?!), a better QB than any of your three (none will match Hundley’s first year stats: 3745 yds, 29 TDs, 11ints), and we are deeper (sanctions cost you that Arizona game last year, and you only have 5 receivers right now on schollies). So, how are you still superior–right now (not three years ago, or in the last decade)? I mean, if you want to dig back into the past, who still owns the longest winning streak in the series? UCLA at 8 in a row.

          • Joe Blow

            If you want to dig, go to 1954. Look, you beat us last year. Your QB better? Probably, most likely. Recruiting class better? Hardly. You have, what, twice as many players to add to the total count? What’s your Star average? Are you superior because you beat us one year? Hardly. I’m not happy with Kiff, but Mora may be a one trick pony. I’ll wait until the end of the season to make my decision on that. Overall, before, now and in the future, YES, we are superior (just like you are in BB). One win does not make a dynasty.

          • UCLA Owns the Rose Bowl

            Star average for UCLA is 3.81 per player, which is 6th in the nation. USC star count is 4.2, the highest in the nation. Yes, you have higher rated players overall, but why did all three major recruiting sites rate you lower than UCLA? Because depth matters, and UCLA has greater depth due to the SC sanctions. A few injured players hurts SC more than UCLA this year.

          • Trojan Hoarse

            I appreciate your rational and well thought out post. .. I will grant you the points that you made. ..UCLA are the prohibitive favorite now, so we shall see how they adjust to being the hunted. …I have November 30th marked on my calendar. …do you?

          • UCLA Owns the Rose Bowl

            Thanks, Hoarse. Yes, November 30, L.A. Coliseum. I look forward to it.

            Joe, so what you are basically saying is that all that matters is star average? So, if USC landed 3 players who averaged 4.5 points, that would be a better class than a team that landed a boatload of 3.8 recruits? And you do not have a “higher rated” class–UCLA’s is higher rated by all three premier recruiting sites. I’m not the one coming up with a BS rationalization.

          • Joe Blow

            You answer is why I can’t take you seriously. Dude, we have a higher rated class. The ONLY reason you are ahead is because you have twice as many recruits. Honestly, you’re full of crap. This is just why SC people look down on Fucla. It’s always some BS rationalization. Heck, we KNOW we sux in BB. You just can’t come to grips re: FB.

    wow!! whatta week for the trOXans!!! first they sign a high school baseball player who batted .250, and now a walk on receiver!!!

    hmmm, this kid is 6’4″ with a 4.4 GPA….why no offers?? anyways, good for you kid, but did anyone mention you’ll be facing the UCLA Bruins?? don’t try any short slants kid, when Anthony Barr hits you, you stay hit. ask Pious.
    fit on Limbo U!!!

    • B.Miller

      Whats the name of your other Linebackers?

  • Evil Robot

    I find it so funny that all the UCLA fans trip over themselves to bring up how a couple guys chose the Bruins over the Trojans. Do you realize that UCLA offered every player except Max Browne (five star), Ty Isaac (five star) and Quinton Powell (four star). You lost out on everyone else against a team with limited scholarships after a six loss season. Clam down, your most exciting recent season had five losses (including the game your coach chose to throw) to bring you to a total of 13 in two years.

    • TrojanFan

      When you’ve been getting your a$$ handed to you every year five loses is a moral victory, pathetic

      Against Kiffin, the ruins are 1-2 and outscored 132 to 53, beyond pathetic!!!

      If this makes someone feel all tingly they have some serious mental issues, hear that bucket!!!!

    • Bill

      We didn’t offer because we knew that they were overrated and didn’t want to compete so they took the path of least resistance!

      • Evil Robot

        Okay, so your reasoning accounts for three guys (barely in some delusional sort of way), what about the entire rest of SC’s class?

    • UCLA Owns the Rose Bowl

      Finished higher in every recruiting list than USC. “Lost out” is hilarious. We kicked your a$$ in recruiting, and as long as Kiffin is in the driver’s seat, we will continue to do so. The truth hurts, and so do sanctions.

      • Evil Robot

        Yes, the sanctions hurt and that’s why UCLA should have finished higher than SC, since they could only sign a max of 15 guys. As far as your contention that Kiffin can’t recruit, look at 2012, 15 guys and still the top class in the Pac-12. In UCLA’s defense, they were coming off a 50-0 loss to SC. 2011, with no sanctions, SC finished 4th in the nation. Take a look at UCLA’s most recent class and see how few of those guys had SC offers.

        • UCLA Owns the Rose Bowl

          Just did – USC offered 7 UCLA guys, and UCLA offered 7 USC guys. So, what’s your point?

  • Trojan Hoarse

    Speaking of walk on’s, how about Abe Markowitz back as a walk on?????

  • UCLA Owns the Rose Bowl

    UCLA record vs USC in the Rose Bowl: 9-7, including four wins in a row in the 90s. The longest winning streak USC has against UCLA at the RB is 3. So yeah, UCLA Owns the Rose Bowl. My name is backed up by facts.

    • TrojanFan

      You need to look at the big picture

      ucla is 5-7 in actual RB games, #6 on the list, pathetic…. USC is 24-8, #1 in appearances and victories. That’s the TRUE FACTS

      Plus. it’s been 2 decades since the ruins played in the RB game. beyond pathetic

      Looks like you don’t own shlt…hahaha!!!
      So what exactly is making you feel all tingly?

      • UCLA Owns the Rose Bowl

        I feel great, actually. Better recruiting class, better team, MUCH better coaching, MUCH better quarterback, back-to-back Pac-12 South championships, 38-28 drubbing of USC last year.

        Pathetic is becoming the first-ever preseason #1 to end unranked, losing to both your rivals, and losing a bottom tier bowl game to a losing team.

        Silly little Trojans. All you have is the past.

        • TrojanFan

          Five loses last season and the ruin trolls consider it a great season, now that is truly pathetic!

          The true PAC12 south champ for 2011 was USC, seems you forget to mention the reason for the asterisk.

          Dude, you have no leg to stand on, hurry grab a chair!!!

          CRASH!!!!!!….too late….hahaha!!!!!

          • UCLA Owns the Rose Bowl

            I never said we had a great season. We had a better-than-expected season under a “question mark” coach who had never coached at the college level (sound familiar?). But we beat your a$$, sent Barkley spinning to the bottom of the NFL draft lists, and out-foxed you in recruiting (I just said hi to Kylie Fitts on Bruin walk last week, and he yelled back, Go Bruins! Vanderdoes will say the same). Mora is four times the coach as Kiffin (admit it, you know it’s true). And don’t whine to me about losing out on the ’11 PAC-12 south championship. Not UCLA’s fault that SC got slapped with sanctions.

          • TrojanFan

            You’re not getting any sympathy vote from me

            It’s time for you to move on, the short-bus is leaving….and take bucket with you, please!

        • Karla

          Oh, NOW I know what they mean by Yesterday U.

          I think this season the new “reality” will sink in. QB position is looking very sketchy.

          • TrojanFan

            Hey demented charlie, Looks like you brought karla back, lame!!!

            I thought you fired her because she wasn’t getting the job done. The constant knuckle shuffle up and down the piss pump can wear out a good hand….ouch!!!!

            OINK OINK!!!

            dementia is some nasty stuff!!!

  • B.Miller

    To All the USC fans, please stop arguing with stupidity. Yes UCLA had a decent year, and beat USC. But every one on here knows the facts.. You do have to argue them with UCLA fans..
    just let them have the one win in the last 5 years. 2 wins in the last 14 years. whatever!
    Until UCLA wins something there is no point in arguing with stupidity..
