    Howard Jones, John McKay, John Robinson, Pete Carroll. These guys are legends.

      Pete Carroll is an outstanding coach, but no legend. A legend would not have left SC high and dry days before signing day with NCAA sanctions coming.

        His win/loss record speaks for itself. Will any coach ever win 34 straight games again?

        • Saul Goodman

          Again, great coach but for me a “legend” is more than just wins/ losses. “Legend ” is not a word I throw around lightly

            You’re still here? Do you need a tissue for those sniffles? Man up. Pete was a no name coach who brought a program back to glory. You can be upset that he jumped but the magic was gone, the culture was shifting. Numerous people on the inside and outside were reporting this. Sanctions or no sanctions, Carroll was leaving. Give him credit that he has helped out USC alums in the NFL and still has close ties to the school. Stop sniffling.

      In his own special way…Goat Boy was also legendary.

    When ESPN began it’s live broadcast of the game right after the IA – LSU game the camera panned the south main entrance to the Rose Bowl and on the right upper side was a large piece of canvas with John McKay clearly affixed to it.

    For we grads of 30+ years or more he will always be the finest coach USC has ever had – just a great man and a leader.

    I love how Ucla calls the Rose Bowl their “home field” – that’s funny – Happy New Year! High hopes for SC in 2014! Havent seen the schedule yet, I know we start vs Fresno but – more BC? We play Ducks? What stands out? Stanford at home… Adoree jackson?

    • rusoviet

      We play (home) Fresno St., OR St., CO, AZ St., Notre Dame and CA

      (road) Boston College, WS St., Stanford, AZ, UT and UCLA

      Stanford looked clueless once their basic offense schemes flat lined at the end of the 1st qtr. – Shaw made no adjustments for the 2nd half – MI St. made big plays when it mattered – that final play by Stanford showed no planning for being behind < 2 mins. to go down over 4 points – poor planning by Stanford OCC – better team won – MI St..

        What happened to the days where we’d play a Big 10 opponent? Pre sanction days?

      • TDOG

        Wonder what we will look like going into those last four away games of the season – looks like a brutal stretch! Cant wait! Hahahahappyyy Newww Year Trojans and vermin alike! Love SC football, always will even though our AD wears tight yellow pants and our beat writer is obviously a closet case in many various aspects!!! Love to all!!!

    JK is a fool. His father was GREAT.

      Joe did you make a new year resolution to lighten up?

      • Joe Blow

        Dude, JK is a fool. Period. Job Hopper. Haden’s buddy. Got a sweet big payday from SC. What a joke.

        Coach McKay was different. He was class. Had humor and was a smart guy. Sick of JK living off his dad. Same old jokes, they were funny when John told them. JK is a f ing joke.

        • steveg

          So I take it I was wrong on the resolution?

          • Joe Blow

            I’m a realist. Many of you are dreamers.

      J.K. had the privilege of of REPRESENTING his FINE Father. I know it’s difficult for you to comprehend, since you run around calling everyone “BRO” because you have no clue WHO’s your daddy!
      Nubsie….representing the VERY Worst among the Torgan Family.

        What would you know about “fathers”? Too many tacos and beers yesterday? Please refrain from Trojan family matters. Stick with your ilk.
