USC Morning Buzz

Here’s my story on USC’s quick start defensively and whether the Trojans can go down as one of the best in school history.

“Being considered one of best defenses in country, no one’s heard that since (former linebacker Brian) Cushing and them were here,” safety Dion Bailey said.

    We will see about this D once they go against some real teams. Of course , not playing Oregon will help their stats LOL. Pendergast probably isn’t feared by other Pac coaches since he failed at Cal … and just about every other place he has been.

    • Golden Trojan

      He’s got quite a bit more talent now than he had at Cal. But let’s see in a month where this team is.

    • Trojan Hoarse

      Cal went from seventh to first in the Pac-12 conference in total defense in his first season there. How was that a failure?…..And what coach actually “fears” another coach in the Pac-12?…. gimme a break…..

      • Bruin Rick

        That was a total flook. Cal was good that year because they had so much talent with the backs. And anyways, Oregon was not looking at their seriously. Pendergas is not even good engouth to coach in Berekly.

        • Trojan Hoarse

          BRick, BRick, BRick……you are simply dismissing his accomplishment as a talented defensive coordinator as a “flook”?…..it’s “fluke”, by the way…..your credibility is zilch……

          • Bruin Rick

            Yeah right. Sure you have no good comeback so you point out spelling mitsakes. Very cool whorse. No trOJans were ecxited about the hire to begin with. Now you beat up on some bad sorry teams and he’s the best defensive expert in football? I feel sorry for all you losers. And talk about credibility you gueys were under the impresions that you were going to win the bcs last year.

          • Trojan Hoarse

            Wow… 15 comments in less that 16 hours of creating your screen name…. The Cadre must be very proud of you…..Guey… please just back away from the crack pipe…..

          • https://www.facebook.com/charles.bucket.3 Charlie Bucket

            wow, check out the big brain on T-Hose!

            Brick, i mean Bru-Rick is an artist, like Charles Buckowski, and he does not recognize your sacred spelling or grammar conventions!!

            he’s not playing by your rules any MORE!

          • Trojan Hoarse

            Guey/BRick/C-Buck…..it’s good to see that you are spending your final days on this planet so productively….your “illiterate” BRick (aka Corky) act has already grown very tired…….Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

          • Bruin Rick

            Yeah sure, thats why your so quick to respond to us! Boo-ya!

          • https://www.facebook.com/charles.bucket.3 Charlie Bucket

            sweeeeet one! Bru-Rick you are en Fuego (on Fire).

          • Bruin Rick

            These gueys are done Chuck. We better move on over to the Oregon ducks blog. the trOJans will self detruct. I heard them booing their team all the way from the nice part of town.

          • https://www.facebook.com/charles.bucket.3 Charlie Bucket

            yeah you’re right BR!! not even Rey “No Neck” Reyes can save them now!!

          • Bruin Rick

            Face it trOJans, you guys are all about yesterday. The ucla machine is about the next decade! And with coach Alford in basketball, well dominate this town. Menawhile you clownes hired some retarted coach from a no-name school. Weeeek!

        • WEB_Dupree

          What did you major in, Rick?

          • Bruin Rick

            I’m majoring in sociology now. Why, where did you go to college? The U of second class education? Ha!

          • https://www.facebook.com/charles.bucket.3 Charlie Bucket

            Bru-Rick, way to take WEB down town to CHINA Town!!

            he thinks he’s so smart.

          • Bruin Rick

            Which is a step up from that dirty south central! WEB is down and out

          • WEB_Dupree

            Ralph Von Albertson was the smart one with the fancy degree. The Rev. Dupree majored in hustling at the the Inglewood Institute of Gospelology.

          • https://www.facebook.com/charles.bucket.3 Charlie Bucket

            i see you were inspired by Bucket’s Full Disclosure!!

            in any case, one thing i know we both agree on, is that Bruin Rick is the Yasiel Puig of this blog!!

            i feel like i’m 65 again!!

          • WEB_Dupree

            Full Disclosure?

          • Jethro G Sabbath

            Full Disclosure?…

            Yeah Right!

            chortle

          • TrojanFan

            Waste bucket has a new lover…ouch!

          • WEB_Dupree

            Wait — are you on the football team?

            ARE YOU SHAQ EVANS?!!

          • TrojanFan

            Trolling this blog makes you feel better about this 8=D (actual size)

            Hung like a pimple!

    • FIGHTONtoVICTORY

      It was clancy’s defense that held Oregon to like 17 points(pretty sure it was 17) a couple years ago. I think that if he has the talent, his D should be pretty good.

      • Bruin Rick

        Whatever trOJans. Mora is a defensive expert. So many teams from teh nfl want him to coach. By the end of year, bruins will be undefeated and #1. You gueys will be like number 130. Ha!

        • TrojanFan

          Hey penis breath, wrong blog, go buy a jockstrap if you need some support.

          Troll on, you pathetic TOOL!

          • Bruin Rick

            I like the use of all CAPS for emphasis. Right blog ’cause I likes kicking the trOJans when their down

          • Hey SUC’s

            You obviously have an advanced SUC degree in articulation. I’ll bet you’re a RE sign spinner on a corner in BF Acton. Nice work if you’re qualified.

          • TrojanFan

            Nothing wrong with the articulation, embrace it!

            Not at a student, just a fan!

            Nice try, idiot!

      • Trojan Hoarse

        According to ESPN, USC is the only FBS team this season to not allow a scoring play (TD or FG) on a drive that reached the red zone…. Utah State has scored on 16 of its 17 red zone drives this season, with 14 red zone drives resulting in a TD. Its red zone TD mark of 82.4 percent is ninth-best in FBS…….Something obviously has to give this weekend……

        • Bruin Rick

          Dudette, you haveant played nobody yet! Plaese shut it down whore-sc-e before you embarass yourself more in front of your boyfriends

          • Trojan Hoarse

            You apparently have a “fan” in Bucket…. he upvoted you within 2 minutes of your post……

          • https://www.facebook.com/charles.bucket.3 Charlie Bucket

            and just DOWNVOTED you.

            buhhhhhh-BAM!!

            Bruin RIck’s got some serious game, if you trOXans can’t deal with it, go cry to your boyfriends!

          • Trojan Hoarse

            I noticed…..you are over 50 years old and doing this….

          • https://www.facebook.com/charles.bucket.3 Charlie Bucket

            over 60, closer to 70 in fact

          • Trojan Hoarse

            I’m impressed that you’re able to post so frequently between bowel movements….

          • https://www.facebook.com/charles.bucket.3 Charlie Bucket

            here’s another one with your name on it, i’ll to for a Capitol T….

          • Trojan Hoarse

            You’d better flush twice…. it’s a long way to Westwood……

          • Bruin Rick

            Sweet post again Bucket! You and me will drive these toe-jams away from this blog.

          • TrojanFan

            Pull the d!ck out of your mouth, you’re making no sense at all

          • Bruin Rick

            Way to stay classy south central

  • Golden Trojan

    Question – Who can hold their opponents better tomorrow and cover the spread, USC by 6 1/2 or UCLA by 42 1/2?!

  • Stu Azole

    Come now. It’s a bit too early to start discussing this D as the “best ever”. They’re certainly better than last year, but let’s not get carried away just quite yet.

    • Bruin Rick

      Stu in the house! Sweet post. The trOJans are not realistic about how bad this year will be in the end of the season. But their going to keep Lame. That’s the best part of the whole messy dillema for U of south central. Loving it!

      • FIGHTONtoVICTORY

        i see another voice has emerged in bucket’s head.

        • Trojan Hoarse

          This “guey” reminds me of Corky from that TV show……

          • Bruin Rick

            What are you even talking about, yo? How old are you? Nobody even remembers black and white tv shows

          • Rusty Buckets

            Are you kidding me right now? How much worse can this blog get? This is so pathetic. Scott, can you please make it a pay-site. I will gladly pay.

          • https://www.facebook.com/charles.bucket.3 Charlie Bucket

            and the Cadre raises you. we’ll pay double!!

            wait, Bruin Rick, what do you think??

          • Bruin Rick

            We think alike bro! We got mad game all up in here.

  • Fred Sampson

    The Defense will be as good as the offense allows it to be, the Trojans do not have a dominate Offense and will leave the defense out to dry against a competitive Team . So you really can’t compare .

  • Bill

    The real credit should go to the Ting Brothers…
