Jack Del Rio Not At LAX

For those of you (like me) totally underwhelmed at the idea of Jack Del Rio becoming USC’s next football coach, here’s what Denver Broncos coach John Fox said about that tweet Del Rio was at LAX last night.

“He wasn’t at LAX. I was with him at DelFriscos when that report happened,” Fox said.

And here’s what Pat Haden told Dan Patrick about when asked how important it would be to hire a USC guy? “Not important,” Haden said.

That’s a relief since Del Rio never coached in college, never recruited and does not strike me as the type of personality USC needs to recover from the Kiffin era.

    deep down, every Trogan knows the man SC really needs and wants – unfortunately he coaches at UCLA! BOOM!

    • Trojan Hoarse

      Steve Alford?

      • Stu Azole

        Would be better than Lane.

        • Rusty Buckets

          That remains to be seen. Alford is good at protecting rapists from the law.

          • Stu Azole

            and SC is good at lying about rapists on its campus! And, the guy from Vandy has a big rape scandal on his hands – he’s PERFECT for SC!

          • Rusty Buckets

            Say what you want, ucla is still the school that hired the rape-protector, Alford

          • Stu Azole

            And SC is the school that intentionally covered up rape stats to protect its image. Difference is my point is fact and yours is opinion.

    • TrojanFamily

      I don’t know any Trogans other than you, so technically you are correct.

    • Rusty Buckets

      What’s up with the Narcissistic tap on the
      shoulder? Boom? Really?
      That was pretty lame. You must be one of the worried bruins too. No worries, I understand.

    • Arturo

      Doesn’t Mora have his eyes on the NFL? In other words, he’d like to coach at SC..

    • C Franklin

      Stu Azole…Name fits you well…
      What flippin idiot you are…

  • Jj Griffiths

    You don’t even know the guy and he’s not even the coach, but already you’re snarky towards him. Why doesn’t he strike you as a good candidate? Jim Mora never coached in college…or PC. Guy is an alum and gets USC, a great college player himself, a good defensive coordinator, and was a head coach in the pros. He’d prob try to keep EO, and bring in other college guys. So ease of on the attitude already, Perez Hilton.

    • Stu Azole

      why is keeping Ed O a good thing? You guys crack me up!

      • Jj Griffiths

        Do you follow college football?Recruiting coordinator of the year? Nationally known as one of the bestDLine coachesin the biz? The guy

  • TrojanFamily

    But no acknowledgement from the journalist that his report of Del Rio being at LAX was BS?

    Maybe you should have a slightly higher standard of sources for reporting than “unconfirmed twitter reports.”

    The real story here is how Scott’s standards are somewhere between Perez Hilton and a 12 year old gossiping schoolchild.

    • Trojan Hoarse

      Essentially, that is exactly what this blog has become…..the National Enquirer of USC Athletics……

    • Brian

      It was a not a journalist…just a random dude who posted it on Twitter.

      • TrojanFamily

        The journalist to whom I was referring was Scott

        • FIGHTONtoVICTORY

          exactly

        • Stu Azole

          he never said he was there. He said someone on twitter said he was there. Wolfie was 100% correct, again.

          • TrojanFamily

            Stu, just when you start to sound like you know what are you are talking about….when Scott reports it on his blog, he is reporting it. Journalists should be held to higher standards than a Facebook update. it used to be that a journalist required two confirmed sources before reporting. Now, you hold Scott up to the same standards as any guy with a Twitter account. If I post to twitter that “unconfirmed reports have Jim Mora leaving UCLA this week to take a job at CalTech in the Math department” and of course it is not true, can I just say, oh I was right! I did say it was unconfirmed.

          • Stu Azole

            he reported “someone tweeted” JDR was at LAX. If you read more into it, that’s on you. And you need to remember this is a BLOG, not the paper. On top of that, it’s a FREE blog. You get what you pay for!

            And let’s not kid ourselves – Wolfie’s one of a thousand reporters throwing the rumors around. You clowns would bash him if he didn’t, and you’ll bash him when he does.

          • TrojanFamily

            Just to be clear, your argument here is that, if we read into Scott’s blog that he’s actually providing accurate information, its on us? This blog is now fiction? Or since we don’t pay for it, we shouldn’t expect accuracy? I don’t pay for Jim Hill on CBS or Fred Roggin on NBC. But I do expect them to be accurate as journalists.

          • marvgoux1

            On a blog you have discussions and in the aftermath of a coaching change there are a lot of rumors flying. There is nothing wrong with discussing the rumors. Even after your hero Kiffin is canned you rah rahs still keep attacking.

          • Stu Azole

            Nope. Point is that it’s easy to tell when he’s passing on rumors and not reporting facts. If you can’t tell the difference, it’s on you.

          • marvgoux1

            You don’t understand the difference between a blog and a newspaper.

  • The Monopoly Is Over Here 2.0

    Well looks like Harvey Levin played another fast one on Wolf, but what can’t be disputed, is that Charlize Bucket closed down the blue dolphin last night. Slope has it on authority that he was in rare form!

  • TrojanConquest

    Would love to see the comments by a Wolf when Pete Carroll was a candidate, and also the new hire.

  • Henry Bibby

    Did (Jack Del Rio) speak to someone other than Haden? – Scott Wolf

  • timtrojan

    “Mr Haden, Scotty Wolf is on the phone.” Not ever going happen. Haden would tell his assistant to tell Scotty to pound sand. Scotty why dont you and Bucket sit in your 1 bedroom apartment and wait for Pat to call for your advice.

    • marvgoux1

      You rah rahs want suck ups like Garry P instead of objective reporters.

      • timtrojan

        No Scotty is reporting what is on TMZ. There is an objective hard working reporter. Using reporter and Scotty in the same sentence is blasphemy. Marvy go pick up you social security check and have your gums checked.

  • B.Miller

    Taking jabs at a Del Rio already? HA! boy you never stop..
    Who would you like to see as the HC Wolf?

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

    As always you’re dead on, wolfman!!! But the smart money says Taco Del Rio is gonna be the guy… AFTER Saban, Meyer and Mora all consider it CAREFULLY, I mean!

    HAWR-HAAAAWR!!!!!!

    • TrojanFamily

      Mora will not be offered the job. Even someone with as low of an IQ as you knows this.

      • Stu Azole

        LOL. You know SC would LOVE to hire him. But alas, they’re left trying just to match him.

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

        uh excuse, me, Rusty, but did not the Boozy Elf get down on his knees and BEG Savage to leave us hrs after he won the CWS???
        now THAT was desperation!! triple the money to leave??

        so why wouldn’t he get on his knees again???

        he just publicly got on his knees and begged the NCAA for mercy when he had ZERO chance of getting any!!

        Sith Lord Garrett was an A$$, but at least he was a man.

    • Rusty Buckets

      Hey, whatever happened to the “Coach P” love
      affair? If I remember correctly, the bruin A-team was sent to Boise to bring him back to Westwood. In the end, the Cal State Dominguez Hills alum couldn’t
      close the deal.

  • Golden Trojan

    Wolf wants Mike Riley! Yeah, after Saban, Meyer, and Miles everybody has Riley as the fourth best college coach in the nation! Del Rio might be a great hire, first of all, if he’s burning to coach USC for the rest of his career.

  • Arturo

    Why limit yourself to the usual suspects? I’d call Jimmy Johnson, Steve Spurrier, etc and think outside the box..

  • Jj Griffiths

    btw, i just figured out why SW is being such a jerk – he realizes that Del Rio has the best shot, and there’s no way he can have a good rapport with an SC head coach. Has to get the right snarky tone established right off the bat, if not sooner…jerk.

      you better smile when you say that about the wolfman, buddy.
      oh wait, i see you are smiling. never mind.
