USC offensive coordinator Clay Helton defended the third-and-goal call from the 1-yard line against Notre Dame when the Trojans lost three yards on a Wildcat formation with Javorius Allen.

“We have a lot of faith in (Allen),” Helton said. “He scored two touchdowns the previous game. The Wildcat worked really well for us before when Silas Redd had two explosive runs.” Full story here

Meanwhile, defensive end Devon Kennard was named a quarterfinalist for the Lott Award this morning.

    Fit UN!

      Manager Manuel cant see his reflection on the tables in the BK. Put some elbow grease into it!

  • Stu Azole

    Is it possible that SC will have ZERO kids enroll early this year? That would be the final kick in the crotch from Lane – only having 15 rides for 2013 and literally letting 5 of them go unfilled. There’s a lot of discussion about whether it was Lane or the snactions that led SC to its current spot at the bottom of the PAC, but on this one, it’s clearly Lane! LOSE ON!

    • FIGHTONtoVICTORY

      Calling USC bottom of the pac when fucla will be lucky to come out of the season with only 1 more win than USC.

      • Stu Azole

        er, yeah guy. You go with that if it makes you feel pretty inside.

      • HeySucs

        Lose on to the cellar, Didn’t you pick the SUCs to beat Wash. St., AZ ST. and ND? Keep up the winning prognostications, Bunky.

        • FIGHTONtoVICTORY

          No, I didn’t. I don’t predict scores or outcomes for USC

    • The Bat Fooster

      Drive Thru Stu, do you ever wonder how your life would be different if you worked at Del Taco instead of Taco Bell?

      “The road not taken,” and all that.

      • Stu Azole

        nope. same pay scale, similar product. But man, that was an awesome burn. Clown on!

        • The Bat Fooster

          But Drive Thru Stu at Del Taco you could get Mexican food AND french fries!

          • Stu Azole

            again, AWESOME BURN! Clown on!

          • The Bat Fooster

            By 9:30 this morning, you’ve posted six comments on this thread alone on
            a blog for a school you don’t even like. And you’re probably nowhere
            near done for the day. Clown on, indeed.

          • Stu Azole

            yep, and you’ve answered every one, and then counted them. I’m in your head. But let’s see – 6 posts, 20 seconds each, so 2 minutes of my day for what amounts to 24 hours in your head. I’d say that’s some pretty good production!

          • The Bat Fooster

            Drive Thru Stu, if you were getting good production, you’d be promoted from chalupas to gorditas.

          • Trojan Hoarse

            He is still cleaning up after the chihuahua……..

          • Stu Azole

            BOOM! Another GREAT BURN! Next thing you know, someone will say I’m gay! Oh BAM! How will I ever GO ON? Bwahaha, clown!

          • The Bat Fooster

            Not gay. Just a sad troll spending time on a USC blog trying to push the buttons of random people you’ll never meet.

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

          can you believe someone thinks claiming everone else works in fast food is some big zinger??

          OMG these trOXans have absolutely NO GAME!

          “Yeah, your mom works as a garbage collector!!!” Ha ha! wow.

          • The Bat Fooster

            Your mom works as a garbage collector… in the IE!!!

    • Walt Hazzard

      Thanks for the Great analysis stewie!. What is the reason for the last 25 years of futility for “your alma mater”??
      TROLL AZZ

      • HeySucs

        You first Wally, splain SUC’s 59 years of BB futility. SUC is something like 12 – 18 in BB tournament play. SUC does well with voted in championships, but utterly suc when forced to win a championship in head to head competition. Lose Wally.

        • Walt Hazzard

          Hey SUCLA
          Stan Gilbert????
          TROll ON!!

          • Trojan Hoarse

            Stan, Sam, thank you, Ma’am …. we knew what you meant! …. :)

          • ProbationU

            Just saying…no reason to beat a dead Hoarse. Sam, Walt, John OR Marv.

          • Walt Hazzard

            I was answering a specific question..Just sayin’

          • ProbationU

            Sam Gilbert like Walt Hazzard is dead. Just like John McKay and Marv Goux. Get some new material.

          • Stu Azole

            who? I’m not 100.

  • Stu Azole

    so I see on another trOXan website that many fans wonder if SC should just stop playing for the rest of the season. Save the kids and all. From unfinished business to quit all together in just a year is almost more than a fan of the MIGHTY BRUINS can take! QUIT ON!

    • The Bat Fooster

      How many USC websites do you troll each day? Cal State Westwood, represent!

      • Stu Azole

        Just one. I’m a student of the game though. Quitter U! That has a nice ring to it – I guess better that than Fig Tech!

        • The Bat Fooster

          And by “the game” you mean the “now that USC is having a down year I’ll talk smack on their blog” game.

          • Stu Azole

            down year? DOWN YEAR? Haha, I’ve been here a while my friend, not just this year. But to call what you’re having simply a down year is comical. Last year was a down year (including a beat down by the MIGHTY BRUINS). Remember ON!

          • SaferInWestwood

            It’s really the 2nd year but who’s counting?!?!?

            Butter Pecan for all “Trogans”, don’t worry fellas I got this!!

        • Trojan Hoarse

          You had better thank goodness UCLA has Mora as head coach to instill a little discipline, or else you guys would STILL be jumping over the walls QUITTING practice……AZZ-Troll……

          • Stu Azole

            Sure am. But again, that’s me living in the today and you living in the yesterday… where apparently all troxan football fans insist on remaining.

          • Trojan Hoarse

            Nice generalization, Putz…..I don’t live in yesterday…. I bring it up only be that is ALL you seem to be able to relate to…….and your memory is about as short as your d%ck…….

          • Stu Azole

            haha, you can’t stop living in a time when USC wasn’t the worst program in California! That’s right, if any team is able to lose to Cal, it’s the lowly Troxans!

          • Trojan Hoarse

            Put your money where your mouth is….what?…. it’s WHERE?….oops… sorry… please excuse me, Bucket….and zip it back up!

          • The Bat Fooster

            Living in the today must be a nice change of pace. You guys were living in the 13-9 game for years (and living in the IE).

          • Stu Azole

            the what? I only remember last year’s beat down. BOOM GOES BARFLY!

          • The Bat Fooster

            Look how happy you are, remembering a USC player getting hurt.

          • TrojanFan

            The past will always follow you, embrace it

    • TrojanFamily

      So you troll one website with quotes from another?

      Are you even trying anymore?

  • ProbationU

    Looks like J Blow is a little off his game this morning. May need a cup of Joe to get going.

    Just curious about all the putdowns of the 909. Do you all think that the SC campus is in a better neighborhood than the IE? Also, check your roster, you probably have some kids from there playing…if I remember correctly Cravens is one.

  • B.Miller

    Kennard ..well deserved.. Hope we can keep everyone healthy..

  • Goatboy Kiffin

    crap call by a crap clueless coach

  • EncinitasBruin

    Agholor in the corner off the play action…

  • trojandude207

    “Michael Wyche, a defensive tackle from East Los Angeles College who committed earlier this year, will not be attending USC. Wyche did not take the necessary courses to enroll early in January. Instead, he is expected to go to Miami.”… -where cheaters always prosper.

    • Trojan Hoarse

      Miami is also the current home of former USC verbal commit, Seantrel Henderson……Sports Illustrated called him “probably the most polished lineman of the past decade.”…..PFFFFTtttttt……On National Signing Day, Henderson verbally committed to USC but initially refused to sign a letter of intent until the NCAA handed down its ruling on the Reggie Bush scandal. He did end up signing, but once NCAA sanctions came down on the Trojans, Henderson decided to just simply not show up at the school. The Trojans’ Lane Kiffin had to get on a plane and fly to Minnesota to figure out what was going on. Eventually, the school agreed to let him out of his LOI, and days later he committed to the Canes…

      • Stu Azole

        haha, yeah, that was funny!
