    Hey Scott,

    There has been a rumor going around that Pola was fired not by Kiffin but by Haden and for “violations of university policy.” Accordingly, Pola is not welcome on campus and will not be considered by a new coach. Can you enlighten? Also, is your column going under the LANG paywall?

  • Sportsblab Jones

    Dear Mr. Wolf,
    If you could somehow go back in time and alter the course of history, whose birth would you try to prevent: Adolph Hitler or Lane Kiffin?

    • marvgoux1

      Scott, Pat Haden was talking about who would be the best coach 10 or 15 years from now like it ruled out Ed Orgeron, but Ed is only 52, so he would be a ripe old 67 years old 15 years from now. He really is at the peak of his career now. Why do you think Haden wouldn’t hire Ed after we whomp fucla, is it that Haden is a snob and considers Ed to be beneath him and is an embarrassment to hoity-toity wine sipping brie eating big bucks alumni?

  • BEATND

    Sorry Scott,
    I have two (2) questions.
    (1) Fans in seats determine profitability, so why can’t they choose the coach they want?
    (2) I heard RUMOR that Chow would return if Orgeron was HC. Have you heard any such rumor?

  • B.Miller

    Can you have the young lady you do your videos Reid Silverman wear a little less clothing.. It will bring in viewers. and slowly remove yourself from the video..
    Please and Thank you

  • Jack B

    Scottie – 1) Do you believe even 1/2 the opinions you trot out here in order to incite Trojan fans?

    2) What other “media person’ has influenced you the most in terms of creating your peculiar Trojan athletics schtick?

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

      VIOLATION!!!! one question limit please!!!

      • TrojanFan

        VIOLATION!!!! one username limit please!!!

        When do you find time to troll the ruin blog?

        • Cheap seats

          LMAO @ username limit!

          What’s the chances of Wolf actually replying to the questions this time around? He skipped the last 3 Q & A sessions.

          Maybe he should just call it Q?

  • peter

    Could you please list who is red shirting this year.And with the renewed team chemistry who that could turn pro might think twice now.

  • SCFTBL1

    IF COACH O GETS HIRED, WHAT ARE THE ODDS HELTON WILL BE RETAINED?

  • B-rad

    What was the relationship like between Orgeron and Norm Chow back in the day? How about Orgeron and Tim Davis?Perhaps Helton wouldn’t mind being a norm chow understudy. Or, perhaps Matt Leinart could be the next Sarkisian and be an understudy to Chow. Wasn’t Mattie Leinart the real OC in 2005? It seems like he called an audible on every play that year. How much $ would it cost to lock down Clancy as a DC for a few years?

  • Go Tama

    If hired, would Jack DULL Rio be the single worst hire since Lane “Black Eye” Kiffin ? And would not that warrant the removal of one Patrick Haden from his job since he recommended Kiffin ?

  • The Capper

    Scott, one of the posters has the name ScottWolfSmellsHisOwnFarts. I find this childish and juvenile. My question is whether this person is telling the truth…that you smell your own gas.

    • ScottWolfSniffsHisOwnFarts

      I agree. It is very childish and juvenile. I’ve come to expect so much more highbrow content on this blog. Frankly, he’s beneath the lofty standards set by Wolf.
      Wolf definitely smells it, but he blames Lane Kiffin for farting.

      • TrojanFan

        Hurry, hurry!!….pull my finger!

  • Helen

    What’s the story with Kenny Bigelow? I know he is redshirting, but I thought he was the crown jewel of this year’s class and we really lack depth on the DL. Is he not as good as advertised and taking a year to develop or is the redshirt year to setup the pipeline of new talent on the DL?

    • Trojan Hoarse

      Throw in Cyrus Hobbi, while you’re at it…. poor kid still hasn’t recovered from his disastrous debut/experience during last years game at Stanford…The fact that Marcus Martin is a beast at center hasn’t helped his cause either…..

  • Bill Simons

    PLease explain how Steve Sarkesian is not viewed as anything more than a sideways hire based on his mediocre record and association with the previous head coach.

  • Walt Hazzard

    If Orgeron is hired who might he bring in and
    who would he most likely retain?
    Thanks

  • https://www.facebook.com/yo.duh.31 YoDuh

    a good time this is to write your long awaited book, hmm?

    from Westwood to the Rishi Maze, anxious fans are!

    commit to starting it after the HC hire decision, will you?

    many stories you have, i sense!

    use The Force, you must, Wolfman! use The Force!

  • gotroy22

    If Pat Haden decides to go for the glamour pick instead of Coach O, which programs do you think would consider hiring Ed to be their head coach?

  • snarfy

    Scott, when did you become such a fool? Did you have an “a-ha” moment? Or were you always this pathetic?

    • Helen

      It was during delivery when the doctor went to slap his behind, but hit him in the bald head cuz they looked the same.

      • Trojan Hoarse

        They should have slapped his MOTHER instead…….ba-dum-bump…….

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

    wolfman, thanks as always for a great blog and Open Forum!

    barring a blow out against UCLA or bowl game fiasco, do you agree Bounce Pass Haden is now BOXED IN and HAS to hire the Agin’ Cajun??

    if he does not, the players will all revolt!! but i don’t think Haden envisions himself at all those ritzy fundraisers with a barefooted cajun bumpkin tearing his shirt off and washing his hands in the punch bowl!!!

    and there are those pesky character issues!

    what say you, wolfman??

    • TrojanFamily

      Like Torian White? Oh wait, that’s across town.

      • Helen

        Or Nick Pasquale? No, that’s across town as well.

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

          Helen, did you really mean to toss a shot at a boy who was killed by a car?

          • TrojanFan

            Leave Helen alone, bully!

          • Jack B

            Actually, Nick tragically killed himself with alcohol, a well-known fact.

        Today at lunch my trOXan buddy actually asked where you were!!!
        But I think it’s Hadden who is boxed in, mot moi!!

        • TrojanFan

          What the fuc is a “trOXan buddy”? Are you sure it wasn’t yoda, your left nut

  • Fade

    Orgeron was Kiffin’s top assistance and right hand man during the debacle that was the Kiffin’s era. Why hasn’t he been held accountable?

    • Gollum-Wolf

      It’s called chain of command, dumbass. If anyone should be held accountable, it is Haden. He chose to bring the incompetent joke called Kiffin back. It was evident to anyone with an IQ higher than yours that he lost the team last season, in addition to all the BS that surrounded Kiffin throughout his tenure.

  • Bill Agnew

    At this point, what could pat Haden lose by naming Orgeron head coach? Most of the alumni are 100 percent behind him and the recruits as well. He has made a tremendous impact, is wildly popular and south Louisiana coaches have fared well at USC(ie dedeaux & goux).

  • john wolcott

    Who are your favorite Trojan football players to interview and why?

    • Trojan Hoarse

      Anyone who will speak with him……

  • rusoviet

    I asked this last month didn’t see an answer – was wondering if you know Scott if the university has plans to sometime someday install an ice rink below the floor of the Galen Center to allow ice hockey matches between USC and MI Tech, RPI, CO College, ND St., MI, SD St., Notre Dame, Boston College, WI-Superior, MN-Duluth etc..

    I spoke to an alum that plays over in Culver City and he told me the arena has that capability per its configuration – like an answer please and thank you in advance.

      Good one bucket

    • TrojanFamily

      You can always tell when Bucket is in a bad mood. After a big USC win, he hides from his own login and brings out the lesser known ones like the Count and Yoda.

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

        You lie!!

      • B.Miller

        HYSTERICAL!

  • steveg

    Do you think it is about time you let Lane Kiffin go off into history, and quite comparing now to what was with him in charge, can you just let Kiffin go now? PLEASE

  • oneohsixseven

    Stanford has helment stickers. What is the image on those stickers?
    -Thanks

  • Jethro G Sabbath

    Scott,

    Do you think the fact that longtime reader and troll Charlie Bucket’s posts have been reduced to embarrassing a$$ kissing pieces directed at you shows that he has lost his passion for this and he really should consider a more fruitful hobby?

    • TrojanFan

      Plus, arthritis has set-in. He is unable to climb in and out of the dumpsters

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

      Wolfman, I recommend you ignore Jezro’s question (as you always do). Not only does he OBSESS with me, now he is getting vulgar. This is NOT about me!

      Wow. What a NERD!

      • Jethro G Sabbath

        He ignores all of the questions these days.

    • B.Miller

      HILARIOUS!

  • Jethro G Sabbath

    Scott,

    Since you no longer answer the reader’s questions, shouldn’t you be asking
    “One rhetorical question per person please”?

  • Fade

    Has USC ever hired a head coach with a losing record other than Kiffin? Do we want to go down this road again with CEO?

  • G Man

    Feel free to answer either question or both:

    Who is in possession of the Denny’s menu play book?

    How did Lane Kiffin get home from the airport after being fired if the bus took off without him? If Haden took him home that would have been an awkward car ride.
