    poor trojies losing recruits to ASU. That beat down in Tempe coming back to haunt you again.

    • FIGHTONtoVICTORY

      Let’s take a moment and have a round of applause for Hundley’s 64 passing yards against Oregon! They should just hand him the Heisman trophy right now.

      • Trojan Hoarse

        Now that was on his first drive, no?…..the 1st Quarter?…..by half time??…. the entire GAME????….oops….well, he did have three freshmen on their OL and his confidence was probably not 100%, due to their inexperience…..plus, Hundley reportedly may have suffered a concussion in their game against Utah, so lingering effects, perhaps?…..

      • Stu Azole

        yes, let’s. And then let’s get back on topic – SC losing it’s only real recruit thus far to ASU! HARHAR! Now THAT burns!

    • The Bat Fooster

      Drive Thru Stu, that gordita you sold me yesterday came back to haunt me this morning.

      • Trojan Hoarse

        Were you experiencing a burning sensation?

        • The Bat Fooster

          TH, I was waiting for Drive Thru Stu to post his sarcastic “Oh, burn!” response before making an “Oh, it burned all right!” joke.

          • Trojan Hoarse

            HA!….. He is rather predictable, isn’t he?…. sorry if I may have “jumped your route”…..

          • The Bat Fooster

            If they’re going to troll anyway, we might as well try to have some fun with them.

          • CardinalnGold

            Speaking of having fun with the trolls, where’s Bucket? He’s probably busy trying to cancel that order of UCLA 2014 Rose Bowl T-shirts that he ordered. Don’t worry Bucket, the Clippers are supposed to be good this year. You can sell Clipper T-shirts outside of the Staples Center instead.

            And a really bad burn. I think this ends by saying BOOM? Ate CLAP bRuins.

          • Trojan Hoarse

            along with some bacon wrapped hot dogs……

          • Stu Azole

            BOOM! MAN WHAT A BURN!

          • The Bat Fooster

            Thanks for playing along. Ahem…

            “Oh, it burned, all right!”

          • Trojan Hoarse

            Have UCLA fans even claimed Azzhole as one of their own?…… I didn’t think so…..he’s obviously acting alone….as he always will

          • 1ThaiMexCleansMyToilets1

            I hope that Stu shaves her **gina. Will help her burning sensation. BOOM! Wimpy girly!

          • Stu Azole

            OUCH! A vag joke! Man, those are the harshest jokes ALIVE! BURN ON ME!

    • 1ThaiMexCleansMyToilets1

      Poor Stu’s **gina hurts so bad that she has to find places she is unwanted in hopes of cures.

      • Stu Azole

        BOOM! What a SLAM! How will I recover?

        • 1ThaiMexCleansMyToilets1

          Get used to it drippy CLAP. I get paid to follow you around and I’m obsessed. Tampons may help your problem girly boy. Ate CLAP.

          • Stu Azole

            BOOM! I have the CLAP! Ouch! What will I ever do now?

          • 1ThaiMexCleansMyToilets1

            I’m sure you’ll keep posting on our board. And still burn from the CLAP. Ate it bRuin.

          • TrojanFamily

            you could wash that vinegar smell off yourself.

          • Stu Azole

            Why? I’m the KING DOUCHE! YEEEEE!

  • Helen

    This seems to be the usual scenario when the player doesn’t expect to qualify academically. But why does ASU have such a low bar for admittance?

    • Trojan Hoarse

      I was thinking the same thing, Helen……..shades of Vontaze Burfict…….

      • Stu Azole

        Find any link that suggests he couldn’t gain acceptance to SC and post it. Issue wasn’t grades, it was football!

        • Trojan Hoarse

          “Find any link…..”…..that’s actually quite comical….because you believe everything you read on the internet, right?…Ha!…..I suppose that I could flip it around and ask YOU to find any link that suggests that the issue was football, but I digress…..it is highly unlikely that any university would put themselves in the awkward position of publicly announcing that a particular student athlete couldn’t gain acceptance to their school due to poor grades or test scores….I am not an attorney, but I’m guessing that there are probably some right to privacy laws involved and a potential libel/slander suit waiting to happen

          • Stu Azole

            he posted his SAT scores previously. No issue. But I LOVE that you’re falling back to the old “he couldn’t get in” thing seeing as how SC was 11th of 12 in those recent graduation stats!

          • Trojan Hoarse

            Great…. I hope he works out for your team…..

          • Trojan Hoarse

            What were his SAT’s, BTW?……

          • TrojanFamily

            getting in and graduating are two different things. Non-douches know this. One is an admissions issue, the other is the level of academic support the athletic department gives these athletes.

            But hey, you want to wear Eau de Summer’s Eve. Enjoy!.

        • Helen

          I’ll bet Scottie could find some unidentified sources to confirm it.

          It took some time for the truth to come out regarding Burflict’s change… but eventually it did come out.

          There’s not a lot of transparency from both sides of the table during football recruitment.

          • Stu Azole

            Nobody ever questioned Burfict’s grades – everybody knew what was up. SO far though, Troxans on this board are the only ones questioning DJ’s.

      A couple of years ago when researching universities with my daughter, we were looking at acceptance rates and stumbled onto an interesting comparison. It was easier to get into Stanford than it is to get rejected at ASU. And no, you Trojies, she didn’t apply to ASU. She is at the good SC.

      • Joe Blow

        Wow. Santa Clara?

        • ProbationU

          Good guess, JB. I was teasing my friends about my kid going to SC. Counselor wanted her to apply to USC and I said go ahead if you want…said she would probably get scholarship $$ but she just couldn’t do it. So she got nice offer from the other one. Stanford had about an 8% acceptance rate and ASU was at 93%.

          • Joe Blow

            Bet she had more fun.

          • ProbationU

            Good school. She loves it there. She wanted to get out of town. Don’t know why!

          • Joe Blow

            I’ll let that one go! :-)

          • ProbationU

            I couldn’t have set that up for you any better! You must be feeling kind today, given that it is my kid! You didn’t take the bait.

      • The Capper

        Santa Cruz is a little too hippy for my tastes.

        • ProbationU

          Santa Clara…not Santa Cruz.

      • TrojanFamily

        I don’t doubt it. I think if you can sign your name, ASU will take you.

  • sureshot32

    I fully expect USC’s recruiting to sputter along until we name a coach. Who would want to commit to a school if you don’t know who’s going to be coaching you. As much as I love SC, if I were a recruit, even I wouldn’t commit until a coach was named. I know they say you should pick the school for the school and not for the coach, but since you’re going to be spending thousands of hours with the guy who will be shaping your (hopefully) professional future, it makes sense to know who it is before committing.

    If USC names someone like Chris Petersen, Kevin Sumlin, or Art Briles as head coach, I expect the commitments will flood in… especially if the new coach is smart enough to keep key guys like Ed Orgeron, Clancy Pendergast, and/or Tee Martin.

    And don’t forget, the new coach will be able to offer 15 regular scholarships, in addition to the five EE leftover from last recruiting season. So as bad as it’s been, the new guy will only be five scholarships short and will be able to completely remold the team in his desired image in a few short years.

    If Haden makes the right choice (and let’s face it, there could be several “right” choices) the USC football program will be headed onward and upward in no time.

    • Helen

      Let’s just hope the HC decision is made before it’s too late for this year’s class of recruits.

    • rusoviet

      I agree which is why this isn’t going to be done the way AZ State did it when they finally tabbed Graham or even more pathetic Guerrero’s skilled laser choice of Alford – do it the way AZ and WA St. did it – winnow your list yourself – let cut outs find out if a candidate is truly interested while simultaneously conduct the vetting (No George O’Learly’s here) then make the announcement but all done after 30th November

    • Saul Goodman

      Whoever says pick the school not the coach knows nothing about major college sports. The coach is everything. Let’s hope this search goes better than the bball search

    • Stu Azole

      You dopes are ignoring the fact that EE’s have to be committed and IN by early January. Which EE’s are on SC’s radar right now? More importantly, which EE’s really care about an SC offer right now? Anyone? Those rides are going to go to WASTE unless a coach is hired now, which ain’t gunna happen. HarHar!

      And for the sake of argument, if Petersen, Sumlin and Briles are the 3 finalists (all great choices mind you), none will be able to recruit early enough to get the EE’s in. Bwahahaha!

      • TrojanFamily

        Calhoun was not an EE candidate.

        But thanks for playing, Chuckles. Your status as King Douche is secure.

        • 1ThaiMexCleansMyToilets1

          King Douche with CLAP.

          • Stu Azole

            BOOM! Man, that CLAP thing NEVER gets tired. Yes, I have the CLAP! Weeeeee!

          • 1ThaiMexCleansMyToilets1

            BOOM! You have CLAP, yes you have CLAP you are a whiny girly man yes you are!!! Girly girly girly man!!!! Drippy drippy drippy CLAP! BOOM BOOM BOOM! Never gets old never gets old never ever ever. Ate CLAP.

        • Stu Azole

          Never said he was. Just reminding you TORXANS that you’re going to blow all those rides Lane so smartly saved since you have no coach to recruit EEs. HAHA! And thanks, absolutely LOVE the new title. It’s great to be KING!

  • Rusty Buckets

    Bucket must still be struggling. I guess he was delusional enough to think that his bruins could make a splash on the national level. Ha!!

    • Trojan Hoarse

      But they DID make a splash……a huge belly flop!

  • Arturo

    Good for him. Tempe v. L.A. Whatever floats your boat.
