Ed Orgeron Opens Up Kicking Competition

USC coach Ed Orgeron said today he was going to open up the kicking competition following Andre Heidari’s struggles.

“We need to do something with the field goals,” Orgeron said. “We’re going to open up field-goal kicking competition. We’ll give somebody else a shot and see what happens in practice.”

USC’s other kickers are walk-ons Craig McMahon and Alex Wood.

    No better way to light a fire under someones A$$.

  • Stu Azole

    What, cookies didn’t work? I hear Wittek is going to give it a shot.

    • TrojanFamily

      Lt, Commander Galloway advised Lt, Kaffee “if you don’t have it, don’t go for it.” The same is true with your troll posts. When its not there, just parachute out and wait for a better moment.

      Friendly advise for you. You could be legendary as a troll (like ProbationU). But it’s about consistency.

      • ProbationU

        Thanks for the props. No need to kick a kicker when he is down. Fragile egos. Besides, I like to leave the kids alone. Dakhtari will return.

        • TrojanFamily

          Normally I would agree, but this has been two games now. O wants to be like Pete–and Pete was always about being willing to compete. I think this is a good idea to force the competition.

          • ProbationU

            I meant that I wouldn’t kick the kicker. They’re just kids. Makes sense from O’s point of view. Poor kid has been struggling.

            I save my ire for John B and Joe Blow who likes to troll over to our Bruin site.

      • Stu Azole

        advise? Silly trojies.

    • HeySucs

      Hey, when cookies won’t do the job, serve Fudgesicles.

  • trojandude207

    let me give a shot I am 58 years old and run the 100 yard dash in under a day I gotta be better than what I was Saturday (and hang out on the sideline during the games all for a couple of jogs onto the field each game)

  • marvgoux1

    Have they opened up the try outs to the intramural leagues?

    • steveg

      Didn’t PC do that a few years ago?

  • my right leg is so overdeveloped from crotch kicking trOXans, i could probably boot a sixty yarder!! just sayin’….

    • The Bat Fooster

      The only one kicked in the crotch is YOU. A foot called LIFE wearing a boot called THE TRUTH kicked you all the way to the IE.

      • WTF?? no Jehovah’s Witnesses allowed in wolfman’s Blog!

  • Memo to Cadre: ok boys bring it in and take a knee! you guys were OUTSTANDING today!! i haven’t seen a beating like the trOXans took today since Drago vs Creed in Rocky IV!!!

    i want you all to say your prayers, eat your vitamins and everyone in bed by 10PM (except you Thai, i never know WHAT time zone you’re in).

    i want you guys taking it to these Dummies tomorrow with everything we GOT!!! i want you guys all over every post and leave no crotch unkicked!!! ok lets take it IN!!!!!

    • Jethro G Sabbath

      Your dorkiest post ever?

      • C’mon Jezro, drop the facade and ADMIT it, that was pure GOLD.

        • TrojanFamily

          At some point you’ll understand the crotch-kicking metaphor. I have faith in you. (You called it figurative which is close but not exactly a metaphor. But even more importantly, you need to research the connotation of the crotch kick as metaphor. It means dirty and unfair attack–as any actual man would attest).

          If you are female, I will apologize. It would not be improper for a woman to use the metaphor as you do.

          • Fit On, we need to meet I’ll offer to shake hands, then as you extend your hand I’ll crotch kick you and run away laughing!!!


      lol what a fuggin weirdo.

    • Joe Blow

      Guess you can’t READ. Just for you, I’ll post again:

      I herby declare Joe Blow as KING of the Cadre. All previous officers are hereby relieved of duty. Bow Down Dogs. I also declare the following new positions:
      Prince: TrojanFan
      Queen: Helen
      Bishop: Jethro
      Chef: ThaiBean (we love tacos)
      Toilet Bowl Cleaner: Bucket
      Bathroom Freshener: PU
      Valet: Yooduh
      @$$hole: Wolf & Azhole
      Meeting tonight.

      We held OUR CADRE meeting. You will be punished for your absence by polishing TF’s unit for the next week. No don’t pull your phony “cadre” bit again.
      I AM THE KING.

      • Gaaaaawd, so desperate for my attention!! you’re worse than T-Fail.

        if you want to start a Gay Chapter of the Cadre, i’m cool with that, but i’ll have to run it by the Cadre Executive Council. Fit UN!

        • Joe Blow

          i ORDER YOU to shut your pie hole NOW. The Cadre is ALLOWING you to clean the toilets. If you keep it up, you will be banished.

          • HeySucs

            This is pre-sandbox behavior. Joey you really need to stop exposing your lunacy.

          • Joe Blow

            Go away. If you want in, APPLY.

      • HeySucs

        Joey, I doubt the kitten shares your enthusiasm. Why would she want to attend a circle jerk?

        • Joe Blow

          She was there and very important component.

          • HeySucs

            You opened your mouth Joey and inserted both your feet. Some things never change. Is it any wonder you roll instead of walk.

          • Joe Blow

            Your wife opened her mouth and more than feet got in there.

  • HeySucs

    For Eddie the Organ to throw Andre Heidari under the SUC bus is proof that SUC FB is rotten. What about the other SUC chump offensive players and coaches whose useless contributions were equal to or worse then Heidari’s miscues in the ND loss. The blame for the ND loss belongs squarely on the shoulders of Eddie the Organ and his staff.

    • TrojanFamily

      Hey, you finally fixed the apostrophe. Did the finally get to that lesson in your English class?

      And what’s up with your phallically-driven nicknames? Showing your latent tendencies again? (That is the proper use of the adjective latent).

      • Stu Azole

        from the guy who just gave me free “advise”…

        • TrojanFamily

          Oh Silly Stewie.

          Advise is a verb, meaning to give advice (a noun). I used advise as a verb…Calloway advised Kaffee….

          I did not offer you advise. I advised you not to go for it when you don’t have it.

          You might want to google your troll posts before posting them.

          • T-Fam, do you realize all this grammer cheking is purely GAY???

            you trOXans are at an all time low.

          • HeySucs

            Wow, thank you Miss or Mr Grundy.

          • HeySucs

            Why do you find it necessary to explain your illogical and obtuse comments that no sane individual would find creditable. I mean chump SUC FB makes more sense then your underwhelming squeals you post.

          • Stu Azole

            you said, and I quote “Friendly advise for you…” and then you edited it after I mocked you. Nice try though. Dopey troxan.

      • HeySucs

        TScum, the human heart is an organ, so is the liver, the kidneys, etc. You sir, would find phallic references in a Buddhist or Zen Garden. You need to get laid. Who might be willing to accommodate you is a different story. You are a very tiresome child.

  • UCLA Owns the Rose Bowl

    Maybe you guys could find someone on the men’s club soccer team. LOL.

    • The Bat Fooster

      I bet you “found someone” on the men’s club soccer team. I hope Chet and Carlos treat you good.

  • Helen

    Number of the day: 30

    As in 30 athletes at Miami involved in NCAA violations.

    As in 3 lost scholarships and 0 bowl bans.

    • The Bat Fooster

      Don’t bother Haden about it. He’s too busy getting ready to play Fantine in “Les Mis”.

      • USConqueror1

        Why is Haden rolling on his stomach and taking it hard up the belly? does he have no spine?

    • HeySucs

      The kitten hisses.

  • USConqueror1

    I never thought Heidari was very good. Lets Go! GEt another kicker and Fight On!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    LOS ANGELES — Alex Wood, USC’s walk-on replacement kicker, likes to say he’s in his range whenever he’s on the football field.

    And he might be right: He missed only two field goals in his senior season of high school in Washington, including a 51-yarder.
