Ed Orgeron-Pat Haden Update

Or maybe a lack of one. Ed Orgeron just spoke to the media tonight and said he has not spoken to Pat Haden or been informed when he will get to formally interview for the USC coaching job.
Orgeron said he briefly spoke to Haden after the UCLA game. Haden told him to “go ahead and recruit and do what he needs to do,” to perform his normal job duties.
The rest of the coaching staff was on the road recruiting. Orgeron said he spoke to some recruits by phone and the response was positive.

    “Hey recruits, this is Coach O. Did you see us last night? Pretty awesome, huh? Well, no, uh, I don’t know if I’ll still be here next week, but did you see us play? Pretty awesome, huh? Did you know we were really good 10 years ago?”

      That is sweet.

        According to a confirmed source, bucket also posts under the username “HeySUCs, fucing pathetic!

        • HeySUCs

          Well look who’s oozed in from SUC Fan Land – SUC fan himself. All mouth and no game. How about the SUC FB team, Bit*h Slapped 35 – 14. Missed you last night. Knowing you, you were too pus*y to post one of your weak stupid opinions.. I suppose you needed a day to devise a lame, sniveling excuse for SUC’s pathetic lost. Just remember UCLA 35 – suc 14.

        • HeySUCs

          You know what’s pathetic, whiney, sniveling losers like yourself. Big Bad SUC: LOL

      “Or that you can go to fucla and NEVER have a chance to win a national title. In fact the last time they won one, you’re granddaddy was in high school. They even have Azholes for fans”

      Change the diaper and go back to bed

      Ha ha! I could hear Coach Ed O’s voice in my mind’s ear. Too many trolljans think they are still a legacy team when they haven’t done anything in years (especially not without cheating). Thanks for a good laugh.

    • B.Miller

      “And the fact that we have the same Pac 12 record as the USC, who had better wins in the year without a HC And less players..”
      Great talk

  • USConqueror1

    orgeron already got b-slapped in the face after losing a game he shoulda won…hes not getting this job that’s for sure.

    Considering that there are not many realistic options out there I think only a coach like Franklin can fire up the players while gettin us on the right path again.

      “shoulda” is a far cry from “coulda.”

      • HeySUCs

        Excellent point. UCLA won the game by shoving the football down SUC’s throat. Power football delineated.

        • Joe Blow

          Gee, maybe ucla can play LB Poly next week and beat them too.

    • HeySUCs

      Please explain how Coach O should have won a game the SUC team lost 35 -14. It wasn’t even close. SUC got its butt kicked; there is no doubt about it.

      • Joe Blow

        Dude, you BEAT a SO SO team. So what?

        • ThaiMex

          Yup…a “So So” team LOADED with 4 and 5 star recruits! The difference is COACHING! Next year….Mora the same!
          fit UN!

      • TrojanFan

        Still no BCS bid….haha!

        • Joe Blow

          Heisman, Butkus and COY. Agree on fucla….mora the same. NOTHING.

  • john wolcott

    Why is it I always rail against the mainstream thinking? Must be that mischief nature of mine since birth

    I like Coach O. And who are the alternatives? Who wants to come to a school that has been raked by sanctions and will continue to be compromised by same?

  • Stu Azole

    Petersen it is? And I hear new head coaches love it when the AD forces an assistant coach on them…Rick and Norm prove it!

    • Joe Blow

      Rick was an idiot to fight with Norm. Norm is not a good HC, but a great OC.

  • BearDown

    Oh How the Once Mighty have fallen. Now everyone will agree Franklin is a good pick. Coach O is a great BALL Coach. BUt not the one U$C wants. Sorry to say. I dont know if he would stay. Who would want to stay after being told well we dont want you here but your great over there. Just get us recruits.. Looks like the excuses are back.. IE Scholarships..

    • Booyakasha

      I don’t know too much about Franklin. Haven’t watched any Vandy game.

      I’m also not sold on Coach O. Last night’s game was a very poorly planned and coached game.

  • Booyakasha

    Joe Schad over at ESPN has sources that indicate the coaching search may be completed by the end of this week. The choices are Petersen and Franklin.

    • HeySUCs

      Are you saying that P or F will leave their decent programs for SUC’s sanctioned program, that demands a winning at any cost attitude, and deal with the incessant abuse of intense pressure of fickle scrutiny from sniveling alumni and rapid SUC fans.

      • Booyakasha

        I’m not saying any of that.

      • Joe Blow

        Mora was dumb enough

        • HeySUCs

          Joey Latent spin your new suc sign: UCLA 35 – suc 14.

        Did you change the diaper?

        • maze949

          Did you change your Tampon, community college?

  • ThaiMex

    Wolfman doesn’t lie! When he says…”Orgeron said he spoke with some recruits by phone and the response was positive” he forgot to add…..positive they weren’t interested in attending a school that smells like Wino Urine” (and just got bitch smacked by UCLA). Mercy Nurse,

    fit Un!

    • TrojanFan

      Fucing lame!

      • HeySUCs

        Back to your hole you whiney, sniveling Loser!

    Odd twist… It’s LESS likely Peterson will leave Boise after a down year… He would look like he’s quitting on team so he less likely to leave now than after a good year!!

    It’s gonna be Franklin JUST LIKE WOLFMAN SAID FROM DAY ONE!!!

  • realtrojan

    I do want to see Orgeron stay with USC football team, but NOT as HC. Let’s bring in a new guy.

    • Brad Hutchings

      Won’t happen. Can’t happen. New coach won’t want be looking over his shoulder on the tarmac at 3am. No coach is going to come in here and go undefeated next year.

  • jetman624

    After seeing the Trojans get out played, out coached, and look generally underprepared for most important game in that stadium, I have some reservations about coach O. But is this is something he learns from and never lets happen again, or is this a hole in his operation? I don’t know…

    Glad I am not in Haden’s shoes. There is no clear, correct answer in this situation… he is going to take flack from one group or another.

  • Dr. Paul

    Just spent 30 minutes reading up on James Franklin. Record of 23 – 14 or 62% with a most recent win over Wake-up Forrest Gump. Ed O is 6 and 2 or 75%. Am I missing something?

    • Brad Hutchings

      Ed O is actually 6-0. The players are 0-2.
