Was USC Taunting Fresno State?

HEIDARI

Probably not a great moment when the official Las Vegas Bowl caption for this photo is “USC kicker Andre Heidari taunts the Fresno State sideline during the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl.”

    11:45 am. Scott sleeping.

    ESPN Reporting: Steve Sarkisian became USC’s fourth coach in the past four months but would like to have USC’s two interim coaches this season on his staff next season.

    Sarkisian said on Sunday he will reach out to Ed Orgeron, who went 6-2 as USC’s interim head coach, and ask him to be a part of his coaching staff next season.

    Wolf….WAKE UP!

      Sark should bring back Clancy and make a run for O.

      Let the healing begin.

      • Joe Blow

        It’s on ESPN, of course, Wolf doesn’t have $h!%.

    • gotroy22

      Is Sarkiffian bringing back Spaulding and Yogi Roth also?

      • Joe Blow

        He sure doesn’t want the FAT Samoan.

  • FightON

    Scott, please. Taunting exists on every sideline, on every team, in every college game.

    We can have a legitimate discussion about when taunting goes too far. However, let’s not pretend, as Simers does, that this is somehow unique to USC, indicative of some corrupt culture, or is always a bad thing.

    It would help if you looked at the context: these kids had a terrible coach who their AD refused to fire. They were miserable under Kiffin and he gets ousted in the middle of the night. It’s still difficult to lose your coach – even if you didn’t always like him – because, at the end of the day, he is your leader and shows some stability. The entire nation thought Ed O would do a mop up job and we would be 7-6 again.

    This didn’t happen. O brought back the fun and USC felt like USC again. Then, Haden drops a bomb and hires Sark – a move I believe O saw coming before the UCLA game. Some boosters liked it, others went nuts. The fan base was pissed off and the kids lost a father figure when O left.

    Most people – myself included – thought USC would phone it in. They didn’t and are now 10-4 despite going through several coaching changes. So, yeah, I think a little celebration on the sidelines is going to happen.

      You would have to admit that the thought of a trash talking kicker is pretty funny.

      • FightON

        That is pretty funny, but then when you look at the Ravens kicker you realize some of them are the only ones on the team with the right to taunt sometimes.

        • ThaiMex

          You have the dumb stupid repetitive tendency to rationalize EVERYTHING embarrassing about $UCks. Imagine for just a moment…” If Idi Amin were a Trojan”….go at it…”spin” it…
          Girls will be girls!
          fit Un!

            Wow, you should switch to a lower carb diet. You are, what Avril Lavigne called “mall angry.” If you mixed in a salad every once in awhile, you’d feel better and drop being so angry. And perhaps you’d even stop hating girls.

          • FightON

            ThaiMex knows how to toss a salad! Give him credit.

          • FMUSC81

            LMAO !!!!

          • FightON

            Not really.

            You have nothing to say so you insult people or make up crap.

            Really, I have more balls as a woman than you will have in your life (and I spend less time on my knees than you do). The only thing you probably have on me is your boobs are probably bigger – which is saying something since I’m a C cup. Get to running, ThaiMex! It’ll make you feel better.

          • FMUSC81

            lmfao … get ‘em Mama

          • steveg

            you hate more than anyone I have ever seen. loser.

      • FMUSC81

        It really is … i think the Brothers who played in the NFL that would celebrate like they won the super bowl on every FG and PAT was hilarious…. I Know when one of them hurt him self celebrating … not to many had sympathy

  • SaferInWestwood

    Is that the same kicker that played in the ND game????

    • steveg

      the term playing may be a stretch.

  • LamontRaymond

    Ginning up that locker-room material for the bulldogs opener, are you, Scottie?

  • PHIL NEIMAN

    USC wins it’s 10th game, and first bowl since Pete Carroll, but all Wolfie can write about is sideline antics!!!! Hey Wolf, go get your goofy friend Petros, and you can both cry on each other’s shoulders because SC won.
    The fun is back in SC football

    • weisberg

      Wait till next year Southern Cal,the Bruins will toy with Southern Cal.

      • Joe Blow

        Hahahahahaha. Too much lox.

        • Trogan Fan

          Anti-Semantic comments have no place here. Wolfie!

          • Joe Blow

            You seem to be making them anti-semantic. I’m offended.

          • Joe Blow

            I am now FLAGGING all of your slanderous posts regarding my excellent character.

    • Joe Blow

      He and Petros shared a room….one double bed.

    • Trogan Fan

      Cut out that extra game in Hawaii and it’s 9. Can’t even get 10 without an extra helping hand see days!

      • FMUSC81

        Whatever you say New Mexico St !!!!

  • HeySUCs

    SUC the FB team, “…relentlessly puerile and crass,” when winning the easy game.

    • TrojanFan3.0

      The game wasn’t easy, the guys just made it look that way!!!! You’re still sore about something, what is it. or should I ask. …..must suck to be you

      • ProbationU

        You referring to the mighty Fresno State Bulldogs that gave up 62 points to San Jose State? That’s not an easy game? Sounds like your standards and expectations have taken a bit of a beating.

        • Joe Blow

          And the #20 team in the nation. Maybe the bRuins are overrated. We’ll find out when they play a nobody, non ranked VT

          • HeySUCs

            Spin, spin, spin that sign Joey.

          • Joe Blow

            That’s what you do when you know I’m right. Spin On!

        • FMUSC81

          yup the same Fresno St Team, both Toledo , Nue, and Mora have turned down on a Home game … go figure for a pushover

      • HeySUCs

        And your eyes are still to close to focus.

  • Toejam For Life

    Shouldn’t he make an occasional field goal before he starts taunting anyone? Maybe Washington State should start taunting him before kickoff!

    It was only Fresno State…

  • Helen

    Scottie: you didn’t write about USC dancing during the Orgeron tenure (Stanford game I believe). You thought it was bringing back the fun to USC at the time. Can you be consistent?

    • Trogan Fan

      Stanford is a good program. Fresno State is not.

      • FightON

        Neither is V Tech. But your guys will be dancing on the sideline when they beat them too.

        • FMUSC81

          IF…They beat them ….. IF!!!

      • FMUSC81

        We beat them both …whats your point AC ?

  • RFLee

    NO SCOOTER, it was a play being sent in ……. glad your not a coach.

  • rusoviet

    Pretty pathetic of this clown considering his graphic ineptitude cost us two losses this year (WA St. & Notre Dame) – sooner he’s gone the better.

    • ThaiMex

      Typical Torgan AZZZZZ Clown, Heidari How many of you “Family ” guys were calling for his HEAD after he missed soooo many gimmeee’s and cost you a few games earlier this season? But it’s funny how things have all the sudden changed…..EVEN the Jackal…Fit Un has now come to the kickers defense. Typical RAH RAH behavior……Mercy Nurse!
      fit Un!

  • john wolcott

    I didn’t especially like it, quite frankly

    The only time I saw that done was in the 2006 SUCLA game when SC started dancing to begin the 4th quarter and SUCLA’s players started to go across the field to take the Trojans on. It also happened 2 years ago, same darn thing

    If you are dancing and prancing among your teammates, that might be one thing, but to be looking across the field at the opposition, that is taking it too far.

  • Joe Blow

    Probably because Mr. Carr was going to “dog” SC. They deserved it. F ‘em.

    • FIGHTONtoVICTORY

      LETS DOG THESE DUDES! THIS GAME DONT MEAN NOTHIN TO THEM! ahh I’m so happy USC destroyed them.

      • Joe Blow

        Fight On!

  • PHIL NEIMAN

    Hey Joe Blow-I think you are on to something. Petros and Wolf and too close for comfort, if you ask me

  • PHIL NEIMAN

    Typical faj, no class bruin. Come back when your team wins some sort of a title

  • Guest

    So we have an issue with this, but not an issue with UCLA dancing and pointing at the SC players and laughing on the field before a kickoff during this year’s game? How is that any different?!? I guess because it was a rivalry game, and SC took the ball down and scored right after they did that, it didn’t matter as much. Give me a break! Once again I’m reminded why I can’t stand Simers!

    • Helen

      Simers forgot to mention the UCLA player who punched a USC player during the first series and was ejected.

      • Guest

        And the other one who punched an SC player, and didn’t get ejected after the first one did!

      • FightON

        I recall seeing Fresno players roughing Seymour a little on the sideline. Wolfie hasn’t mentioned this either.

  • Trogan Fan

    They needed to pick on SOMEBODY after the thrashing they took at home from THE MIGHTY BRUINS! WOTT chant right in front of their lockers hurt more than they could ever tell! Harhar!

  • PugsDaddy

    That’s so funny. Fresneck was talking smack all week, so be careful what you wish for there Fresneck.

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

    Interesting, “wrong way” Hadari taunting an opponent??

    Remember when the Pious Passer taunted the Bruins?

    The next year, a bruin with a good memory WRECKED Pious and left him sobbing in a crumpled heap!!!

    MY POINT is, taunting no es muy bueno!! Especially when you play these guys again early next year!!!

    All I can say is Hadari better have his head on a swivel next year!!! And that’s all I have to say about that!!

    • steveg

      thank God.

  • B.Miller

    Nothing else open out there for Coach O.. as far as Head Coaching positions go..
