USC Scholarship Count

USC officially has three scholarships left with the “decommitment” of Austin Malaota. That number should increase when wide receiver Shay Fields “decommits” and if defensive end Malik Dorton also decides to “decommit.”

    Choose the best three for the positions most in need for this last impacted season.

    Waiting to see what came out of that visit to St. Louis-MO by Sark and co..

    This is a disturbing part of the recruiting process. If a young man always really wanted to go to say, USC, then it probably doesn’t matter much if the coach changes. But the new coaches set out to “let him know” he is not wanted….not groovy. So when schools then demand unconditional loyalty from players, the kids must think “huh?”
    I know most coaches do this to some extent, but it seems like Sark is really pushing a lot of kids out, certainly more than usual.

      I don’t know – free tuition, meals, room, books, not bad if you can get it and you can get it if you try.

      Life’s tough it’s also not fair and for those fortunate enough to even be approached by a top 10 program and then go through the disapointment of not making that school’s cut well a good lesson in how tough life is.

      If a kid has made it that far to be considered and then rejected – get up and go get the free ride elsewhere but yeah – take with your being rejected that there was something deemed missing and your need to rectify that.

          Sure you’re female? There’s a lot of cross-dressers been postin here from the west side

        But what about Marcia?

        • rusoviet

          But if this ‘thang’ be a ‘il-elle’ then man it’s time to step out!

    • Jethro G Sabbath

      I thought you said you weren’t happy with your “woman” accounts because you couldn’t make them sound authentic.

    • FightON

      Limited scholarships. Let the less talented fall in favor of the more talented, especially those thy could start immediately. Happens all the time. Sure, Austin could become the next star, but he might not.

      Actually the truth is Vie baby, kids get “pushed out” at every school every season. Honey, coaches put out way more offers than they have scholies. If you don’t believe me dear, take a hard look at the SEC, mainly Alabama, LSU, and Auburn. Have a nice day sweety.

      • Violet

        umm…i believe i said precisey that. dear.

        • ProbationU

          Yes…I think so… baby…honey…sweety! :)

            Bored Gilbert U. Sorry you have nothing to do.

          • USCs Troll Killa

            Neener Neener neener. Gilbert needs us to mask his inferiority complex.

        • TrojanFan3.0

          How do you get your teeth so white?

            Must be Powerstrips.

          • steveg

            Oh, good question, I would love to know too.

        • steveg

          No. You said Sark is pushing out more than usual. He isn’t. His numbers are typical.

    • TrojanFan3.0

      Go back to bed!

  • ProbationU

    Calls into question why Orgeron was accepting commitments as an “interim”coach. Scholarship restrictions in place and he is taking commitmensts from some marginally talented kids. Perhaps he was trying to force Haden’s hand into hiring him or just panicking about the lack of commits at the time. A bit of a dilemma.

    • rusoviet

      Ed sounds like a great replacement for Mora at UCLA although he better watch he doesn’t keep panicking – leave that to Mora’s emoting and man does Mora love to emote.

      • gotroy22

        Lou Spanos leaves the ruins this year to beat the rush. Mora and the rest of the assistants will be leaving next January and the ruins will return to being bottom feeders in college football.

        • rusoviet

          Well one thing is critical for UCLA – they’d better get the financing for that proposed football facility at Westwood as well as coming through on the salaries for all the staff – if that goes sideways – start playing Franz Liszt’s funeral march….’dat’s all folks!

      • USCs Troll Killa

        Yeah, Mora won’t put up with an 80 yard practice field, no on-campus stadium and broken promises for a quality football training facility for much longer. Ed O would make sense. He needs a job and wants to get back at Haden.

        • ProbationU

          Hope springs eternal in Trojan-land for a Mora departure.

          • USCs Troll Killa

            And Sam Gilbert still has nothing better to do then troll on us. What a pathetic disgrace. Proof you are bRuined by the wrong college education.

          • ProbationU

            And you…with so much more to do…and that superior education…still find yourself in the same place.

          • USCs Troll Killa

            At least I’m playing those I belong with. You’re just playing with yourself. What a shame and disgrace to UCLA. You are proof that if you go there, you’ll be riddled with inferiority and envy of those who you subconsciously know are better than you. Prove me wrong and disappear forever, Gilbert. I double dog dare you. I know you don’t have enough life to not need us.

          • ProbationU

            Every time you argue your superiority you merely prove otherwise.

          • USCs Troll Killa

            And you keep coming back because you harbor such inferiority, pain and hatred. It is very hard to be you.

          • ProbationU

            You should be a shrink….such powers of observation. Hate to see it go to waste on a sports blog when you could be saving so many in the real world.

          • USCs Troll Killa

            You are suffering! You are so full of need and recognition from Trojans!

          • ProbationU

            Keep going…you are on a roll Dr. Freud.

          • USCs Troll Killa

            I’m right again Gilbert! You cannot detach yourself from us. I am sad for you that you have such deeply entrenched inferiority and desperately need attention from those who you envy the most. Can’t lie to yourself Gilbert.

          • ProbationU

            Don’t stop now…I mean you have said the same thing over and over again…very creative guy and proving not only that you are a superior being but putting that Trojan degree on display for all to see. Who wouldn’t envy such a brilliant mind?

          • USCs Troll Killa

            I’m sorry for you Gilbert. You are unable to remove yourself from a USC blog. I wish you had more meaning in your life. Sad for you.

          • ProbationU

            And yet, here you are biting the same hook over and over again like a hatchery raised trout that doesn’t know any better! Time to throw you back in the water…you superior being!

          • USCs Troll Killa

            I belong here. I am a Trojan. I care nothing for respect from you. You have a desperate need for recognition from Trojans and men. Sad for you. Acceptance of your condition is the first step to recovery.

          • TrojanFan3.0

            The guy has self-esteem issues

          • USCs Troll Killa

            Gilbert prefers it rough with Trojan men.

          • rusoviet

            No more like your fear that things are as they always shall be at bel-air tech – a program deemed intriguing because everyone forgets its still there – it has no relevancy.

          • ProbationU

            The moderators are limiting replies…so we will have to see the reply in November…again.

          • Joseph B. Lowe

            The only reason they limit them is because P u s s y s like you email them to complain. I checked it out. You’re a joke. The moderators are a joke. Who cares? I can come back with some other d u m b handle, like you have, any time I want.

          • ProbationU

            Sorry to say Joe…but I have one handle on here and have never emailed anyone. If I have a problem with something, I say it here whether you like it or not. Rusoviet calls me a hall monitor I think…but I have never emailed or flagged a comment to a moderator.

            Now get back to watching Pete get outcoached by Harbaugh in a big game again.

          • TrojanFan3.0

            Your glasses are dirty!

          • ProbationU

            Good thing I’m not a betting man….Petey got me again.

          • Mike 70

            Hey Troll – Pete outcoached? You Lose Again!

      • UCLA Owns the Rose Bowl

        As long as he keeps emoting UCLA to dominating wins over UCLA, we don’t care.

  • gotroy22

    Does this mean The Baby Quarterback is history?

  • steveg

    Hope this brain trust has the horsepower to pull decent kids in if their high hopes for the big 3 are not fullfilled.

    • rusoviet

      Man what’s with the animus? Sounds like you’re still longing for ‘other than’ Sark to head the team?

      • steveg

        No, not longing for anything. My man was Gruden, lost that so will support Sarkisian. No problem there. Hoping they get what they are working for is all and hope they have an ace or two in the hole. Okay?

        • rusoviet

          Okay? Why yes that’s ‘okay’ …. now then let’s all await the hoped for sea change.

          BTW steveg, Gruden’s only destination is the NFL – Spanos went back which is why I wonder how long the new OC that Sark snagged will be at University Park -

          • steveg

            Always thought Gruden was a reach, but hopeful anyway. Hopefully our staff has college ambition and will remain for a while at least before moving up, if one considers working in the NFL moving up.

  • UCLA Owns the Rose Bowl

    Ever seen a horse race where the favorite hangs back until he final stretch, allowing the longshot horse to gas out and fade? UCLA is about to cruise by pUSC, just like last year. No Myles Jack, no Alex Redmond, no Eddie Vanderdoes, no Priest Willis, no Asiantii Woulard. This is why the Bruins will continue to dominate pUSC, helping Sarkiffian keep his .500 P12 record intact for years to come…

      HOW STUPID IS THIS ?

      UCLA has won two games in a row over SC, two years after losing 50 to nothing, thats ZERO !

      USC just when`t through the worst/toughest NCAA sanctions in modern college football history and still who lands/and will land vitually all of the West Coast 5 star recruits while UCLA GETS NONE, THATS ZERO !!!

      When Jackson, Smith, Mama and Quick sign with SC it will prove once again, Top Recruits don’t want to play for UCLA because they want to WIN CHAMPIONSHIP !!!

      Say what you will but at least UCLA finally won a bowl game this year, doesn’t happen to often now does it ?

      But at least you finally played im one ??

      Yes, Westwood is moving up…
