USC Morning Buzz

James Brosher/South Bend Tribune

USC committed 11 penalties against Notre Dame and seven were by the offensive line. Max Tuerk and Aundrey Walker each had two holding penalties. Chad Wheeler had two false starts and Kevin Graf had one false start.

Tight end Jalen Cope-Fitzpatrick also had a false start. With two line coaches, USC should not be in this situation. And every player except Wheeler started games last season so the crowd should not be such a big factor either.

“I don’t know why we had so many penalties,” Walker said. “We’ve just got to get better.”

    I wonder how many of those holding calls could have been non-calls if the referees were indeed fair and without “the other” intentions. Many of the calls against USC after the starting QB of ND got knocked out of the game looked really fishy, to say the least.

      realcrybaby: I watched the game with a trOXan, and EVERY holding call was shown clearly on slow-mo. You all saw it too, so quit whining!!!!!!

      you wanna talk fix, talk to Crazy Legs Hadari!!

        WTH cares what you saw? You’re a defective bRUIN. LMAO!!!

            ALL the true psychos you’ve met??? do you work in the nuthouse??

            i have been called a psychopath before, but it was by people jealous of my powers.

          • TrojanFan

            Powers?…..what, you can suck a baseball up your a$$, nice!

            Go back to bed, you keep striking out

          • realtrojan

            I may work in the nuthouse, but you must LIVE in one. There’s a big difference. lol. And they’re absolutely right! You ARE a psycho…

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

            maybe, but if being psycho is WRONG, then i don’t wanna be RIGHT!!!!

          • realtrojan

            OK, have it your way. Just be your psycho self. How glorious!!! lol.

            With the lack of integrity you have shown on such matters in the past, do you really think anyone will take you up on this wager?

      • TrojanFan

        You are full of shlt! Your dog is the only Trojan that would watch the game with you. Sounds like life down in the basement is rather lonely

        Do you have an ounce of self-respect left in you?

        PS…. 4;00am and you are still up trolling the blog, fucing pathetic!

    • gotroy22

      That’s right, the Pac 12 refs conspired against the Pac 12 team. Will you rah rahs ever admit Kiffin ran the program into the ground and stop making excuses?

      • Goatboy Kiffin

        The rot of Goat Kiffin will linger for quite some time. What a poorly coached mess , that game was an embarrassment. Jr high team have better fundementals than USC. As for Lee , get lost. Kiffin turned him into a prima donna

      • ProbationU

        PAC 12 refs call more penalties than the refs in any other conference. We have the worst refs in the country. Incompetent.

      • realtrojan

        Oh, so just because the refs were from Pac 12 they weren’t going to try real hard to let ND win? lmao. The sports world needs more of the likes of you to keep on thriving.

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

    Just to be clear, i want to point out that the Pious Passer threw those 3 INT’s in THREE CONSECUTIVE possesions. It was NOT over a whole game or anything!!!

    and did i mention the reveivers were jawing at him right on the field???

    • TrojanFan

      What? …..A new man crush!

      You’re a fucing demented idiot and we all laugh at your pathetic a$$.

      Why you continue to obsess over his blog is beyond creeeeepy!

      Let me help you pull the trigger

    • TrojanFamily

      Mancrush! The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. Chuckles has the biggest mancrush I’ve ever seen on Barkley. I really hope you find the strength to take down the Barkley poster from your wall and replace it with your next crush, The band One Direction. Sorry Chuckles, he’s just not that into you.

      • TrojanFan

        BINGO!!!!

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

        delighting in the utter failure of the Pious Passer makes me a small, petty, sadistic fiend, but not NECESSARILY a homosexual!!!

        • Joe Blow

          Your sexuality was proven much earlier. OINK

            buhhhhh-BAM!!!!!!

          • Joe Blow

            He took it out in trade. That’s why your wife is sooooooo sore.

        • TrojanFamily

          You must have your sexual orientation on the brain, because my post is about you being a fanboy of Barkley’s. A mancrush is a fanboy crush, not a sexual one. That you thought it was sexual is on you.

  • john wolcott

    I guess I am as sick as the SUCLA bloggers because I got such a kick out of Stanford beating up SUCLA, and I cannot stand Stanford.

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

      We had a chance to tie with 3 mins left, AT Furd. And as far as getting beat up, several Trees were unfortunately carried off the field.

      Don’t worry Gramps, your boys will have their chance against Furd and if Southern Cal wins I’ll leave this site forever!!!

      • Jethro G Sabbath

        So that counts as a victory to you, right? Setting lofty goals there!

        • Stu Azole

          nope, but UCLA’s in a far better spot than SUC! But at least your team has cookies!

          • TrojanFamily

            UCLA. Our losses look better than USC.

            Recruit On!

          • Stu Azole

            USC, where we hope UCLA loses so we don’t look so bad anymore! And as of now, it’s loss, not losses. So go ahead and pick – which loss was SC’s best?

          • FIGHTONtoVICTORY

            Man, just imagine what Oregon is going to do to you imposters. Gameday will be there to show the ENTIRE nation just how overrated the bRuins are.

          • Stu Azole

            but man, imagine what Wazzu will do to SC… er, wait, that actually happened. Yes, UCLA will lose to Oregon and the team will be 5-2. Who does SC actually beat down the stretch? Maybe Cal and Colorado? Certainly not Stanford, OSt or UCLA. LOL.

          • FIGHTONtoVICTORY

            Yeah, we know the season is lost. Hence, the reason our head coach was fired! On the other hand, fucla is supposed to be a “bcs team” with a heisman candidate at QB. Neither of those things are true, and they were exposed vs StanFURD. fucla will end the season with 4+ losses.

          • Stu Azole

            you’re confusing media hype with thoughts of bruin fans. Most thought 9-3 would be a good year given the schedule. Still quite possible. Some would say probable with patsies like Colorado and SC remaining.

          • TrojanFamily

            They all suck. Unlike UCLA, USC fans don’t brag about how good their losses are.

          • Joe Blow

            Wooooooooooo.

          • Joe Blow

            Oh Please. After a couple weeks, we’ll have the same record.

          • Stu Azole

            you keep holding on to that. But SC will be lucky to get that 5th win.

          • Joe Blow

            Blah Blah Blah

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

          i’m just sayin’ we didn’t get beat bad. NOBS is the one going around saying he doesn’t care if Southern Cal loses, so long as Bruins win!!

          and he’s the de facto leader of the Dummies!!!

          • Joe Blow

            Blah Blah Blah

          • TrojanFamily

            Enjoy those moral victories.

            I admit it. I don’t take to losing well. If a USC loses, I don’t make excuses or claim it was a good loss.

            A good loser like you, Bucket, is still just a loser.

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

            quit yo’ jibber-jabber!!!

            good luck against Utah!!!

            (chortle-this will be the ugliest yet…..but only till OR and UCLA, BlTCHES!!!!)

      • TrojanFan

        Quit making excuses, you piece of shlt! You got manhandled, embrace it. The dementia is fucing up your perception

        Try hooking a hose up to your mom’s exhaust pipe and take a permanent nap

      • TrojanFamily

        I think the key difference in fan bases is that USC fans gate every loss, whereas UCLA fans enjoy moral victories.

        Enjoy those close losses!

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

          say what???

          we gotta get off the air!

          • TrojanFan

            Make sure the door hits you on the way out!

        • Stu Azole

          Yes, it’s the bruin fans on here saying how they don’t even care about losing because they all knew the season was a wash after a squeaker with Hawaii. Er, wait…

          • TrojanFamily

            No its the bruins fans on here (plus you, who is more of a troll than a Bruin fan) who are trying to argue that UCLA’s loss was somehow better than USC’s because you played Stanford close. In short, you are trying to make a “moral victory” argument by stating that your losses aren’t as bad. USC fans consider every loss as bad. We just hold the team to a higher standard.

      • Joe Blow

        Oh please. fucla FB sucks. As I posted on another topic, answer the questions:

        1. What’s your last NC?
        2. Last Rose Bowl appearance?
        3. Last Rose Bowl victory?
        4. Last time time ranked #1?

        5. How long did it last?

        I love this. “We had a chance with 3 mins left.” You had a FAT CHANCE before the game even started, Stanford mauled the Little Gutties and wreaked havoc on Hundley. Don’t worry Bucket Boy, you’ll get to re-live this beat down on Saturday. And guess what. You have ZERO CHANCE, as usual.

  • Independent_George

    Dear Mr. Walker:

    You are getting penalties because you and your teammates are not very good.

    Your RT, Mr. Graf, has T-Rex arms and therefore allows quicker players to get inside leverage. So sometimes he has to grab them in order to keep them from killing your undersized, weak-armed QB. This is a problem.

    You yourself look the part but don’t play it. You make one great play then you take the next two off. And you seem to have poor vision and you get confused easily, not knowing who to block.

    The guy you replaced at RG was blown up by Will Sutton on the very first play of a game. He is a favorite of message board coaches and opposing linemen everywhere.

    Your center looks OK, but he is still learning to handle assignments.

    Your LG has trouble keeping on weight. Since your former HC was big on his guards pulling, some weight has been left off in order to keep up his foot speed, and he gets manhandled from time to time, forcing him to grab onto to bigger and stronger players. Hence the holding call near the end of the fourth quarter that negated a first down run by Mr. Redd.

    Two years ago, your LT was a 230 lbs high school senior. He might be decent next year or the year after that, but he was rushed into this position because you failed at it.

    And to add to all the physical deficiencies, you have been overcoached by an insecure con-man and are currently coached by someone who was fired from the weakest SEC program, so you, and your fellow o-line teammates, think too much, play slow, and exhibit poor technique.

    The other guy hired to coach you was on the payroll to keep the former head coach from getting beat up by other coaches.

    Next year there will be a new Head Coach who has no emotional ties to you or your teammates. He did not recruit you, he isn’t trying to prove the he is the greatest recruiter in the world, so he will bench you if he feels that someone else is better. You will play if no one else is better, but if that is ture, get used to losing a lot next year as well.

    My advice is to study hard and stay in school because it doesn’t look like a lucrative NFL career is for you or your teammates’ future.

    • Fred Sampson

      I could not have said it any better, this obvious problem should have been addressed a few years ago. I always thought John Martinez and Kevin Graft were the weak links on the offensive line and I’m not even a Coach…LOL !!

      • Joe Blow

        Excellent posts!

  • Jethro G Sabbath

    “USC’s committed 11 penalties against Notre Dame”

    Looks like SUC’s wrote this and used his signiture unnecessary apostrophe.

  • CardinalnGold

    Those second half penalties were drive killers. The O-Line is still clueless when it comes to blitz assignment. Lee dropped a touchdown & Fitzpatrick dropped what would’ve been a huge first down. SC beat themselves in South Bend.

    • TrojanFan

      Yes, that game should of been an easy win!

    Hello, it’s me, 2006. I need you trojans to forget about me because I’m the past. History. Gone. Done. Nothing anymore. You really need to get with my friend 2013. Now, I know he’s not being nice to you, but trust me, he’s far nicer than his brothers 2014 and 2015.

    • Jack B

      Hello, it’s me, 1953, the last time the Little Gutties won a national championship (split actually) in football and before your coach died in the arms of a prostitute. That’s true, if you can actually believe it. 2013 is already over for UCLA, I know. So give a call to 2014. Maybe you can finally win a conference title, but I doubt it since “underachieving” is your life long motto.

      • ProbationU

        1954 actually and we know Red Sanders died “in the hole” so to speak. So what. At least he went out happy, didn’t slice up two people and lead half of the CHP on a wild chase. Seems like Jack B and Joe Blow might be the same person. Truth or fiction?

        • Jack B

          Weren’t you the plebe who was bragging about staying on topic? Oh, and thanks for biting. I knew ProbyU would point out the season was actually 1954 – almost 60 years ago!!! Since that’s your only year, it’s impossible to forget. Such a predicable, underachieving Little Gutty troll. Thanks for re-emphasizing Little Gutty ineptness. So cool.

          • ProbationU

            Red was over tired from kicking the Trojans a$$ on a regular basis. 1954 was also when $C made the Final 4 in basketball. Red is a degenerate in your eyes but $C still celebrates OJ and had him address the team before the Orange Bowl and Ed O just had Ray Lewis, another alleged murderer out to speak to the team last week. Kill on!

          • Jack B

            You’re not too sharp today. Suddenly, it’s all about history for ProbyU. About-Face! The present is still pretty bad for you as you are heading back down, down again. Can’t seem to gain any respect, as usual. As far as O.J. goes, nobody I know from USC celebrates Killer O.J. Although there are weird Little Gutties who think Darryl (“Let’s kill the judge.”) Henley was framed. Actually Bruins do their best killing right on the Westwood campus. Lawsuit city. I’m sure you know what I mean.

          • ProbationU

            Ray Lewis was hardly the past. A couple of days ago. Weird how you celebrate murderers. It’s been awhile, but I remember seeing the Trojan tribute to all it’s athletes on the cover of Sports Illustrated and they listed the cover with OJ on it in June 1994 just after the murders. Now that’s worth remembering.

            Probably a tough week ahead for us. After all, Oregon is better than Wash St. and ND. Get ready for 20 more years of what you had in the 80′s and 90′s. That is what awaits you.

          • Jack B

            You really are stupid ProbyU. Lewis never killed anyone. Just rolled over on those who did – like anyone would. Poor Little Gutty. Your week is gonna be so tough. You’re just lucky last year’s schedule was so easy, when you still lost five games. Now, you’ve got a chance to finally beat us twice in a row. Wow. You can do it. What awaits the Little Gutties? An ass-kicking on GameDay. Oh yeah!

          • ProbationU

            Ray rolled over to avoid prosecution. Like the Juice, he hired good lawyers. $C has a lot in common with the U. You should be proud of that. Also, proud of still losing to ND after they had no QB. Pathetic. Like the upcoming 20 years. You’d better hope we get an NFL team in LA or you will have nothing to live for. We know you don’t care about not having a BB team.

          • Jack B

            Memo to ProbyU: Everyone rolls over to avoid prosecution. Man, are you stooopid!

          • ProbationU

            You are the moron that said he didn’t kill anyone. That is why he rolled over. But hey, you chose to go to a 2nd rate school in South Central that has so many rapes on campus they forgot to report them all. What would you possibly know?

          • Jack B

            WRONG. So, the prosecution just let a murderer go to get the goods on too other dudes – both of whom were acquitted? Lewis was never a participant in the fight, idiot. He pled to lying to the cops. His testimony actually helped the defendants. You should change your nickname to Mr. Stoooooopid

          • ProbationU

            We know what he pled to. The question is what he did in the club and many feel he got away with participating in a murder. They couldn’t make the case, so they offered a deal. Doesn’t mean he was innocent. Coming from the school of the term allegedly, I would assume you knew that. Lewis hired a good lawyer, just like Rey Maualuga and Mark Sanchez. Poor Matt Leinart couldn’t find a way to avoid child support. But like a real Trojan, he never gave up trying to avoid it until he got sued. Cheat on!

          • Jack B

            Since you want to play lawyer, the state couldn’t even prove Lewis was at the scene. All they had on him, literally, was that he was waiting in a car after the fight and told the actual participants to keep quiet about everything – obstruction. Any lawyer in America could have gotten him off. Yet you know he’s a murderer. Typical Little Gutty creep who thinks he’s all-knowledgeable and morally superior. You’re a disgusting, stupid weakling. Typical Little Gutty fan.

          • ProbationU

            Just morally superior to you, Jack B or Joe Blow or whomever you are. And those quality Trojans, Maualuga, Sanchez, Leinart, Cushing, Mark McGwire, the Ting Brothers et al.

          • TrojanFan

            Stay out in left field we enjoy you better

          • ProbationU

            Hope you enjoy the next 20 years of football mediocrity like the 80′s and 90′s. It’s where you boys are headed. And Jack B…if you aren’t one concerned about morality, then why the harsh judgment of Red Sanders with the hooker? Is it worse to hire a hooker than kill two people? Beat somebody up in a bar to near death like Maualuga? Whip out your johnson in a nearby campus bar an put it into a girls hand like Sanchez? What about get a girl pregnant and abandon her and not pay child support like Leinart? Or supply steroids to Cushing and all like the Tings? And none of this would have come to much attention had Reggie Bush just paid that guy off. What a bright Trojan! Yep, you guys are a great example of all things Trojan.

        I guess you’re not listening to 2013. He’s really trying to pull you out of the past but we all understand why you want to stay there. SC used to be good. Query whether a great run from SC has ever ended with something other than NCAA sanctions?

    I don’t think there is a need to pile it on the players. We know some players aren’t as good as advertised and have stunk it up…I think the real problem is that there doesn’t seem to be real competition going on because these guys can’t be the best guys that SC can presently put on the field. I don’t believe it. (Put in Falah, Simmons, anyone)
