    “…..and I can’t make grades”

      I think bucket has a sore crotch this morning. He took a lot of low blows yesterday. His mindset is, “it hurts so good”

      • Joe Blow

        lol

        • TrojanFan3.0

          It was deleted, must of struck a nerve!

            Major LOL

        And all those times, I thought the gay remarks were just “jokes” on him.

        I had suspicions when I first heard Wolf’s voice, but his fake handle now confirms it. What’s he doing covering football btw? Locker room access?

  • Henry Bibby

    Why do I imagine Wolfie smiling with every post lately? He clearly hates the new coaching staff. He clearly loves when USC is losing, and has controversary, over winning. This is just another post where Wolfie is actually happy that Uko is leaving the program. Sad but true.

    • Helen

      Very sad but true. Some of the buffoons on this blog are fooled by Scotties’ bias, some are UCLA morons who are here to encourage Scottie, and then some are wise enough to see through Scotties’ vindictive attempts at journalism.

    • Cheap seats

      He fits the mold of every energy-sucking vampire / negative-nancy types our there. Their lives are miserable and it irritates them when someone is happy. He even refers to the non-cynical people as “rah rah sunshine pumpers.”

      Just like the saying that a team will take on a coach’s personality, this blog and it’s trolls have definitely took on Scott’s personality.

    A grammatical masterpiece that tweet…good luck.

    • TrojanFamily

      A grammatical masterpiece that tweet. Did you write this “sentence” ironically? Verbs are your friend. Do not be afraid of them.

      • FightON

        I was just joking about Randall Carroll and his “twitters” controversy. Must be a UCLA thing.

  • Tom Oday

    Is this the limit now? If more leave early they can’t be replaced on the 2014 75-man schollie roster?

  • Helen

    He could have benefited from another year in college, if only for the student portion to learn to articulate his thoughts better.

    The sad part of all these players making this difficult decisions is they all consult with their families, most of whom are money-seeking vampires who think they will get their share one year earlier by having their son turn pro. If you can’t trust your family to look after your interests then who can you trust?

  • Helen

    It’s been said that these early exits can’t be replaced with the sanctions in place – can someone explain the rule here and exactly how does impact USC?

    • 22

      For 3 years, SC can’t issue more than 15 scholarships per year, nor can it have more than 75 scholarship players during the 3 year period. The sanctions are unaffected by how many scholarship players leave during this period. Lose more than 15 per year, which is likely, and there will be less than 75 scholarship players.

    • Helen

      Thanks for the explanation. It will be good to get this NCAA caca behind us.

  • Fred Sampson

    He will be picked before the other two

    • Ben Factor

      I think that a good case can be made for all three to leave. I thought differently about Robey, and I was simply wrong.

      Some readers suppose that a player can never return to school and finish a college degree. Of course he can. Not only will he probably be able to pay his own way without hardship, but he will be able to focus on learning what he thinks he needs to learn going forward.

      Rarely do I say “it’s all good,” but for these three, I think it IS pretty good.

      In 2013, most of the better players leave early. The realistic coaches probably discuss that with a recruit, and explain how the program will get him ready for that, and can help the recruit plan ahead, to finish or nearly finish his degree, etc.

      However, it makes it tougher on a school under scholarship sanctions.

    They all think there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Secure your degree first then!

    • TrojanFamily

      They can always go back and get their degrees. In fact, if they wait until their playing career is over, they can be full-time students and have a greater chance of success.

      • TrojanFan3.0

        Very few have the willpower to make it back! The numbers prove it!

        • Arturo

          Or are too banged up physically from all those concussions to even remember where they went to school.

  • TDOG

    When Wolfy picks up a scoop in this light, he squirts a bit more lotion on his “tossing” hand and goes to town!

    • TrojanFan3.0

      Knuckle shuffle up and down the piss pump. Ask him why he has bad eyesight?

  • pactenman

    Best to you Trojan Uko. I feel good for the players that can get out now. No sense at all to stay around for a year of Sark and this sorry staff.

    • LamontRaymond

      You must have been part of the anti-Pete brigade, too, huh? More of a Hacket guy?

      • pactenman

        I’m happy for you that you can slurp the Kool-Aid. but do really compare going from Hacket to PC the same as Coach O to Sark?

        • LamontRaymond

          It’s about perception. You’re calling a staff and a dynamic “sorry” when you haven’t seen a single practice. Folks did the same thing with Pete. It’s cool if you prefer Coach O, or Franklin, or Peterson. Those guys aren’t the coach. So feel free to crap on a coaching staff that hasn’t had a chance to prove itself – if it makes you feel good about yourself.

          • gotroy22

            They already have had a chance to prove themselves, 5 years in fact. How did this staff perform at UW? They already proved they are mediocre. No wins against Oregon? Even Kiffin beat Oregon once. Demanding excellence is what USC is all about. Making excuses and hoping for a mediocre bowl is what ruins are all about.

          • LamontRaymond

            As I said, go bad-mouth the staff to your friends & family. No skin off my…. I’ll be supporting the team.

  • UCLA Owns the Rose Bowl

    George could have used at least one more semester of English Comp, I think…

  • Arturo

    Short shelf life for any football player. I say go and make some paper as you can never take back concussions.

  • Arturo

    What about walk-ons? I know highly regarded recruits won’t walk on but at least they- the walks ons- would provide some depth.

    • FightON

      Walk-ons aren’t scholarship players (unless they are granted one), so I don’t think that counts. The NCAA limited scholarship players.

      My question is about the kids like Adoree who want to play track. I read somewhere that USC could apply a track scholarship to Adoree and let him play football too. I don’t know if this is true or not, but it would be an interesting strategy.

      When Lane was first hired, he claimed he would target ATH kids to allow them to play on both sides of the ball in order to counter the lack of depth. Easier said than done – but dual sport kids might just work if the above is true.

      • ProbationU

        The NCAA does not allow you to use a track scholarship for a football player. The football scholarship always takes precedence over any other sports. You can’t even go 1/2 scholarship for each.

        • FightON

          Thanks for clarification.

          • ThaiMex

            Been around the game much? Pretty DUMB question from the “BENEFICIARY”.
            fit Un!

          • FightON

            Actually, not a dumb question given reporters were commenting on the strategy. I get it – your feelings are hurt because not only do I pwn you regularly but I point out how little you actually know. But all you have on me is a typo. Lulz.

            Hey does your IQ crack 70? Because Aspies usually do have higher IQs -unlike you – but you do exhibit the social awkwardness of one.
