Quick Thought No. 2

Funny how scholarship reductions is not as big an issue anymore. Yes, it is a burden but it became an excuse until Ed Orgeron took over. He’s proved USC can win under difficult circumstances.

Six weeks ago some people just wanted to make excuses for losing. USC still might lose another game this season. But at least it won’t enter the game with its alibi in hand. The Trojans just beat the No. 5-ranked team in the nation with 50-scholarship players because the coach doesn’t make it an excuse.

    Please no more “quick thoughts.” The first two were dumb enough.

    • rusoviet

      uh I think this is his second one amigo

      • ScottWolfSniffsHisOwnFarts

        Correct. And this one was as dumb as the previous.

    Quick Thought No. 3 — Put more thought into your posts.

    Quick Thought No. 4 — If we lost last night, the scholarship reductions would have been a viable excuse. Our defense was gassed and rotated only 13 players all night. The reason why no one is using that as an excuse is because WE ARE WINNING GAMES AND DON’T NEED ANY EXCUSES.

      Quick Thought No. 5 – Only rah rahs make excuses when we lose. Ed showed why we should be undefeated with the talent we have this year.

      • TrojanFamily

        Quick thought No. 6. If Ed showed USC should be undefeated, why did he lose to Notre Dame?

        Go ahead and make an excuse, rah rah.

        • Golden Trojan

          Right we lost to ND because injuries depleted the roster on offense.

  • Trojan Hoarse

    Scottie, what’s your deal?

  • Helen

    Scottie: you didn’t graduate from the Vulcan School of Logic, obviously.

    The real story is why didn’t USC rotate more in the defense like Orgeron said many games ago? They used 13 players on defense and one of those was in for only one play – so essentially 12 players. It’s amazing (and a testament to the defense) that they didn’t wear down in the second half. And this was against a very physical Stanford offense.

    • rusoviet

      I can assure you ‘Helen’ that same fact was on Stanford’s OC as well i.e. he saw the same jerseys over and over ‘but’ unlike Kiffin – the same players were wearing them.

      That is such a testament of the skill of Orgeron in preparing the team for this game..

      Its the spread that tires the magnificent 11 out. The piledriving beast on Stanfords line have to rest. Those hogs are big. That pulling guard was ferocious.

    • gotroy22

      The real story is when will you rah rahs admit Scott was right about Kiffin?

      • steveg

        What is the difference between a rah rah and a fan? I think most people on here were sick of kiffin, but even worse we are sick of Wolf beating a dead horse. Over and Over and Over.

        To much good stuff going on for the beat reporter to keep beating on the past.

      • Jack B

        Ya, Scottie’s a real genius. His arcane, belligerent, sophomoric insight never ceases to amaze me!

      • Cheap seats

        And when will you shut the f up about this stupid point???

        For the millionth time…You act like he was the only one who wanted him fired? You’re not intelligent enough to get that everyone bashed Wolf because he f-ing blogged about it 3x day.

        You’re repeatativness on this point just proves how stupid your are.

  • NotAFanOfYou

    Stanford was ranked 4th WolfPutz

  • steveg

    That says so much about how the players feel about the coach. Last night was the definition of “suck it up”. Wow, to beat Stanford and use 12 defenders (+1 on 1 play) is amazing. Way to go defense.

  • LamontRaymond

    Damn, Scott – you’re not getting it. With full scholarships, we wouldn’t have struggled to beat Stanford last night. We would have dominated them.

  • B.Miller

    ONLY 13 players played on Defense against Stanford..
