Demetrius Wright Makes Rapid Rise

Safety Demetrius Wright barely played against Hawaii. But he started the Washington State game and then led USC with seven tackles against Boston College. USC nominated Wright today for Pac-12 defensive player of the week.

It’s even more satisfying for Wright because decided against having hip surgery last spring that might have caused him to miss the season.

    Of course it doesn’t hurt that the two starting corners were injured in the Hawaii game. That just might be a factor. But it’s good to see Wright shine. Still waiting for Bowman’s turn.

      Good point. I hope Seymore returns soon. I met the kid at the spring game. Even his teammates who saw his autograph told me he’s going to be one to watch.

    How about that time USC fans booed their own team. Gotta love LA fans

      Nice generalization, idiot….BTW, they were booing the head coach and the play calling, NOT the players, you dolt….and I also seem to recall former ASU head coach Craig Erickson (and not the team) getting booed by the Sun Devil fans not too long ago….. what a hypocrite you are……BTW, are you guys still sporting that USB port logo on your helmets again this year?

      • Booyakasha

        haha…USB port logo

      • fundevils

        ahhaha yea usb port. No I don’t think we ever booed a Craig erickson. And a hypocrite I am not, because I remember a certain Stanford game where the trojan team was booed off the field after tavita pritchard threw a TD pass to richard sherman to beat the trojans. Oh and that was during the pete carroll era so I doubt you guys were booing the coach. NICE TRY THOUGH !

        • Trojan Hoarse

          Oh, THAT was the time???…..what a great memory you have!!!!…Thanks for the “reminder”…and the Sun Devil fans have NEVER booed their own team, right?…..NICE TRY!

          • fundevils

            We never booed a team that ended up #2 in the country! morons ! haha nice comeback.

          • Trojan Hoarse

            When was the last time that ASU finished the season ranked in the Top 5?..During the Frank Kush era?…. …You guys are favored by many to win the Pac-12 South this year….I guess only time will tell if that happens…..nice signature “win” against Wisconsin last weekend, BTW…..

          • fundevils

            How about that loss in the coliseum against washington in 2010? you guys were undefeated and ranked at that point ! pathetic !! hahahahahahahahahah

          • Trojan Hoarse

            Keep living in the past, ASU-hole…..

      • fundevils

        my apologies, Mark Bradford caught that heartbreaking pass.

        • Trojan Hoarse

          No worries… I had no intention of looking it up anyway…. my rearview mirror is broken……My heart didn’t break…I’m a die hard USC fan (Class of 83), but I have far more important things in my life to worry about than the outcome of game from several years ago…..

      Hey…don’t talk smack to the Sun Devil! Have you seen their chicks on campus? LOL

      I have a buddy who works on campus doing their IT stuff.

      I wish I could make the trip when we play you guys this year, but the drive is too long!

      booed the coach smart guy

      • fundevils

        it was a sarcastic comment. I wasn’t exactly talking about 1 specific situation. numb nuts.

    It is a sign of the quality of coaching on defense, letting the players play and using their abilities instead of keeping them in a box.
