The King Is Dead, Long Live The King!

This is an astounding turnaround. Just a week ago, I was being spun by USC that the reason for all the problems were scholarship reductions and injuries and now the official twitter account highlights it not being an excuse.

Ed Orgeron’s been making one good move after another since being named coach.

    WTF??? another kick to Kiff’s crotch??
    oh i forgot “trOXan for life!!!”….right up until you kick him in the crotch!!
    of course Haden didn’t realize how incredibly hypocritical his comment was!!!

    • FIGHTONtoVICTORY

      and he’s back to drooling over men’s crotches.

      • TrojanFan

        ….and trolling the showers…..ouch!

    • TrojanFamily

      Two crotch references in a row? Seems awfully Freudian. Something about envy….

      • Hey SUC’s

        Define Freudian.

        • Trojan Hoarse

          To quote YOU, “Look it up!”……..

    • Rusty Buckets

      Kiffin is not a trojan. But Dorrell was a bruin. Now that was a kick in the nuts. And for what, to replace him with the dream team? Funny stuff.

      • Fred Sampson

        Dorrell had the personality of a Cup of coffee…LOL That guy would crack me up anytime a reporter interviewed him.

    • TrojanFan

      On one gives a shlt what you have to say!

      Any update on the cranium exam?

  • jetman624

    These sentiments are all well and nice to hear until we have a patch work o-line with juco walk-ons getting trampled. The sanctions are having their intended effect. That is all there is to it right now. I expect some more consistency on both sides of the ball, a more diverse offensive attack, but not much more in terms of Wins and Losses– certainly not as we enter the meat of the schedule. We will probably AT BEST be 1 over .500 for the last 8 games. But realistically, we’re staring down the barrel of another 7-6 year…

    • http://4chan.org/ Charlie Bucket

      What did you think was going to happen? Ole Miss didn’t end well either did it?

  • Stu Azole

    This seems like a good idea…until you realize that they’ll have to finally just admit they suck after they finish below .500

  • SaferInWestwood

    I’ll make sure to tune in after the AZ, ND, ORST, STA and the 2TIME DEFENDING SOUTH CHAMPS square off… .

    • Arturo

      You won it last year but it is pretty pathetic to claim that first south division championship. You “won” it by getting pummeled 50 to 0, remember. I hope they teach you better logic over at UC Berkeley South Satellite.

      • SaferInWestwood

        Can’t be more pathetic than your SCUm university losing to WAZZU while your ELITE SCUm DEFENSE gets rolled for 62, pathetic LMAO!!

        2TIME DEFENDING SOUTH CHAMPS.. .

        • TrojanFamily

          Kind of like the kid that proudly displays his participation ribbon when he finishes 8th in the swim meet.

          • SaferInWestwood

            Do they hand those out to 1 to UN teams???

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

            ooooof!! devastating crotch kick to T-Fam!!!
            T-Fam: your analogy would fit perfectly if the kid got a ribbon for being Pac12 South CHAMPEEN 2yrs running!!! aww what the heck, make it THREE YEARS!!!

          • TrojanFamily

            Dear God stop thinking about my crotch. It’s downright creepy.

          • Jethro G Sabbath

            You’re not even considering winning the conference championship, huh?

          • Trojan Hoarse

            They are gunning for a THREE-peat of mediocrity…….

          • SaferInWestwood

            Can SCUm be considered mediocre at 0-2??

          • Trojan Hoarse

            The season is not even over, NimRod……and if we finish with a conference record of 1-8, with a year end victory of UCLA, and eliminate you from consideration of going to a BCS Bowl game?…..well…. need I say more?

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

            and BEYOND!!!!!

          • Jethro G Sabbath

            So step up and guarantee it.
            Or are you not comfortable with that?

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

            Jezro, did you “down vote” me today?

          • Jethro G Sabbath

            No, I don’t need to. I just ask questions that you avoid like they are the plague.

          • TrojanFamily

            No but at USC we don’t celebrate our terrible seasons. It appears you do in Westwood. Hey if all you got is backing into a championship game after a 50-0 loss after firing your coach, enjoy. We all have our own sense of accomplishment.

          • SaferInWestwood

            Right about now firing Kiffen has been SCUms biggest accomplishment!!

            We’re focused on getting back-to-back-to-back titles…

            2TIME DEFENDING SOUTH CHAMPS

          • Trojan Hoarse

            Punting is winning

          • SaferInWestwood

            Speaking of punting it looks like SCUms punter may be the best offense/defensive player on the team!?!?!?

          • Trojan Hoarse

            He just may be…….

        • Rusty Buckets

          If you bring up 2-time insignificant chumps or whatever, then reminding you and the rest of the fair weather powder blue faithful of 50 to ZERO is fair game. You are referencing something that you perceive was a positive from two years ago, the same season that your sorry team scored ZERO against Lane Kiffin. Now that’s funny. Enjoy it while it lasts, because no bruins will be talking football a month from now. And in case you’re so caught up in the moment that you neglect to face reality, ucla will be lucky to get to 6 wins next year without Hundley. Chizik seemed good when Cam Newton was there. When is the last time ucla played in a BCS game? When is the last time they won one? When is the last time it won the Rose Bowl or any meaningful bowl game? When is the last time it won at USC? Yeah, that’s what I thought.

          • Hey SUC’s

            AZ State 62 – SUC 41. SUC’s FB Season is over. Maybe next year Rusty.

          • Cheap seats

            Man, you must have pee’d your pants in the 90′s, huh?

          • Hey SUC’s

            Didn’t SUC lose their last BCS game to UT? Remember that Rusty.

          • TrojanFan

            Do your homework, you look like an idiot

          • Hey SUC’s

            SUC football is done for the season. 0 and 2 in conference standings. Can’t wait to cheer SUC’s next loss.

          • sureshot32

            No, the last BCS game USC played in, was a thrashing of Penn State. Before that, a thrashing of Illinois. Before that, a thrashing of Michigan. You have to go back four BCS games to get the heartbreaker against the functionally illiterate Vince Young. What happens when you go back four BCS games with the bruins? You can’t? How about one BCS game? Can’t do that either. Hmm.

            Must suck to be a fan of a team that has appeared in zero BCS games when the school down the street went to seven in a row (and won six of them).

          • gotroy22

            Real Trojans only count national championships. We either are winning titles or building toward winning titles.The rest of those games were meaningless.

          • SaferInWestwood

            What you say something???

            2TIME DEFENDING SOUTH CHAMPS

          • Trojan Hoarse

            Yea, but don’t they gift out rings and banners for being a South Champ?…..AKA a participation ribbon…….set your standards a little higher, Wastewood……

          • EncinitasBruin

            Prior to this season many SC fans were saying, “This year Hundley is going to be exposed without stars Franklin and Fauria to make him look good.” But what is happening? A good coach with lots of depth has smoothly and effectively replaced those players with others that are performing just as well (e.g. Jordon James is ranked #4 in the nation in YPG). Good teams produce on the field even as the personnel changes, just as UCLA has this year under Mora. USC will begin to produce on the field once the proper coach is put in place. Ogeron is a big step up because he loves his players, and he loves them.

      • Joe Blow

        Total douche bags.

        • Hey SUC’s

          Is that anyway to describe your street string.

          • Joe Blow

            Sorry, I’m sure you thought I was describing your family.

      • Hey SUC’s

        Artie baby, SUC just lost 62 – 41, result: SUC’s FB season is over. Eddie the Organ has inherited the same players the Goat had. What’s the difference. Same crappy, overrated team. That’s why SUC is considered a Water Polo school. Swim on Artie.

    • Rusty Buckets

      By the way, your sentence doesn’t even make sense. Learn how to communicate.

      • SaferInWestwood

        Uuuhh aren’t we communicating???? Learn how to win the South first!!

        • TrojanFan

          Learn how to win a bowl game or at least a conference title

          • SaferInWestwood

            Like the Brawl under the Sun Bowl in El Paso, check!!

  • Helen

    This is pure PR… and I like it!

    • Joe Blow

      Scott is a douche.

  • Big Wave

    If injuries or scholarship reductions as now not an excuse, then the only thing left is that USC just SUCKS!!! Yep, they just suck.

    • Rusty Buckets

      Yes, Big Wave, SC sucks at the moment. We get it. Who’s your team? Let me take a wild guess…

  • TrojanConquest

    I hope Ed makes it hard to go in another direction.

  • Dr. Paul

    Just what would you like Ed to say? “Lane gave me his sweatshirt, cafe menu and ball cap and we are going to play at the same high level we demonstrated against WSU now FO”?

  • USConqueror1

    Are you black?

  • john wolcott

    Pretty pathetic posts, pre-puberty people

    Of course losing 30 scholarships hurts, but just leave the subject alone

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

      you GO LJ!!! this is the second smack down you have delivered to your own peeps in two days!!!

      as you know, our Cadre recruiting is OFF THE CHARTS!! i wish now i had never approved that ramped commission structure!!!

      We have had a record number of trOXans jump ship and come over to the Cadre!!

      LJ, sounds like you are thinking about changing sides….i mean really, how much more of this complaining and whining can you take?? and we BOTH know it’ll be YEARS if not DECADES before the trOXans can field a legit team!!

    • gotroy22

      Pathetic is reading your old pre-puberty posts defending Lane Kiffin.

  • Sportsblab Jones

    Typical sportsblab: after a reserved coach, the fans clamor for a vocal coach who will shout, light a spark, fire them up, get in their faces, show some passion on the sidelines, etc. Then after the team loses too many games, the sportsblab reaction from the fans is that the team tuned the coach out, emotion only goes so far, it’s ultimately about execution, we need a coach who treats the players with respect, etc. It’s as predictable as the tide.

    • Trojan Hoarse

      It’s a start…. and it’s better than having an uptight coach with zero enthusiasm…..another hater joins the blog…….

      • Sportsblab Jones

        Not a hater at all! USC fan since 1972, thrilled by Kiffin’s firing, and excited about the changes Orgeron will bring. I just find these threads mind-numbing. Yet I continue to read and contribute to them . . .

        • Trojan Hoarse

          Long time USC fan as well….Class of 1983 here…….Change is good and a fresh start should breathe new life into the entire team….I’m excited, too… Fight On!

  • gotroy22

    The rah rahs have been betrayed by Ed!
