    good chance they will not get all who they need, but they will get most of whom they want.

    • SaferInWestwood

      Now does that make it a better recruiting class, get who you “want” and not who you need!?!?

      • Larry Harris

        It’s rather simple.

        You need to get what you want, or have wanted to get wha tyou need. In other words, you want what you want but you need to get what you need. You need to not get what you don’t want with the corollary being not
        wanting a non-need. This should lead to a highly ranked recruiting class…except
        when it doesn’t. Follow these guidelines and it should be fairly obvious which
        local team will have the higher ranked class at the conclusion of next Wed. If you have any difficulty whatsoever implementing any these guidelines it would be my great pleasure to refer you to my esteemed consultant, Nigel, who just completed his doctoral dissertation on this very subject at the University of Phoenix. His faculty advisor was none other than the esteemed Dr. Lipshit.

          Classic!

          • Ray Reyes

            Back just a couple years ago, bRUINS were saying stars don’t matter, stars don’t matter, rankings don’t matter. Now look.

          • SUCC de trop

            “Now look,” at what? Try completing a sentence will you Rea.

        • SaferInWestwood

          You could’ve just said that The Mighty Bruins will end up with a higher ranked class… .no?

          • Larry Harris

            No!
            Nigel says that the marks on the wall indicate otherwise. What would we do without him?

      • steveg

        Kind of like with limits on scholies, you go after the biggest wants because you know you cannot get everyone you need. Needs are usually never completely filled, so if they get their wants they are doing well and with the wants they try to fill the needs. Really simple. Please refer to Larry Harris for further clarification if you are struggling with it.

        • gotroy22

          Or the Rolling Stones.

        • SaferInWestwood

          sounds like a winning formula.. . “i need you but i don’t want you” whatever keeps Sc 3rd in the South, ha!

          Thank you Christmas and thank you SC.. .

  • The Capper

    Anyone know how common it is for a school to run out of scholarships? If this happens, does a coach call prospects and say sorry?

    • FightON

      Yes, coaches drop players if they run out. However, many players will see the writing on the wall closer to signing day. The balancing act is actually very intriguing: coaches will hold onto a player and if he gets a better player will drop the other one – that’s when some kids see the writing and switch. Other kids want to be D1 bound and wait around to be a fill-in. That is, they see what other kids do and wait for the coach’s call on NSD.

    • Trogan Fan

      It happens often. Just ask Falah why he’s not a Bruin today! LOL.

      • SUCC de trop

        Where is Falah located on the SUCC OL depth chart.

  • Marv Elapes

    Sometimes kids are asked to grey-shirt, which means they must enroll midyear. Or walk on. Regardless, kids switch at the last minute all the time, so it happens on both sides.

  • Golden Trojan

    Just glad this is the last year of this crap!

    • TrojanFan3.0

      Amen!

  • Helen

    Scottie: looks like Kiffin made the right decision to hold on to some of the 2013 scholarships rather than give them to some cupcakes that we’d be stuck with for four years like you proposed.

    • gotroy22

      Yes Kiffin was brilliant to let all those top recruits bail on us at the last minute last year. You rah rahs never fail to amaze.

      • TrojanFan3.0

        Your perception is way out of focus. You’re an idiot and “never fail to amaze”.

      • Helen

        You’ve been drinking the Scottie Kool-Aid too much. Break free! Think for yourself!

        • gotroy22

          A rah rah like you telling someone to think for themselves? You should be writing for Jon Leibowitz!

  • Evil Robot

    First of all, the vote options are classic. Insultingly idiotic, but classic.

    The problem is really with the premise. SC will keep moving forward and play the hand they’ve been dealt and be fine. It is the players that would have really wanted to go to SC and play football that have run out of scholarships. Paul Dee and the NCAA didn’t ruin the program, they just created a lot of lost opportunity for players who wanted to come to SC.

    • Trogan Fan

      haha, yeah, all those players who REALLY wanted to play for Kiff, then O, then Sarknado. LOL.

  • SUCC de trop

    SUCC loses another Pac 12 BB game tonight, to Oregon St., 76 – 75. Close but no cigar. Let face it SUCC fans, if you want to win basketball games, recruits should enroll at UCLA. But SUCC Fights On.

    • TrojanFan3.0

      The obsession is taking it’s toll on you!
      It must suck be you

      • SUCC de trop

        Be specific about what toll you ascribe to me. Between you and The SUCC BB team, you have the great problem: Always illrelavent.

        • ScottWolfSniffsHisOwnFarts

          You are so not intelligent.

          • gotroy22

            Where’s your master Golly-Nerd? You must have the overnight shift.

        • USCs Troll Killa

          No you’re not SUCLA. You have nothing better to do and misery needs company. Capital L.

          • SUCC de trop

            Sorry about your ADD.

          • USCs Troll Killa

            Sorry we are the most intriguing thing in your life.

        • TrojanFan3.0

          Such a sad little old man with an obsession that is running out of control. Making lame as$ posts 24/7 on a rival blog is ” ignorant and thoroughly pointless”.

          • SUCC de trop

            Thanks for proving my point, three bells.

        • Ray Reyes

          Describing yourself? Why don’t you go post on your own blogs? TrojanFan3.0 is absolutely correct. You and the other bRUINS are obsessed. Where would you be without USC?

          • SUCC de trop

            Bad shade man, bad stinking shades.

    • gotroy22

      Both basketball and football were punished by the NCAA. The rebuilding begins now.

  • ThaiMex

    Acccccckkkkkkk! Das is das chokink zound! U Stupid Chumps lose ANOTHER Basketball game when you miss a free throw in O.T????? Einfeld should be sent to the Russian Front!
    Maybe it’s all o.k….since the last So Cal basketball coach to go 1-21 in conference was given a contract extension!
    Fit un Knuckleheads!

    • realtrojan

      Going insane at last…just as expected. lol.

      • TrojanFan3.0

        He needs to be institutionalized!

    • Jethro G Sabbath

      What time was it where you were when you were obsessively following USC basketball and then coming here to post ABOUT it?

    • TrojanFan3.0

      Go back to bed no one gives a shlt what you have to say. Every time you open your mouth you make a fool of yourself, beyond pathetic!

  • Ray Reyes

    The REAL poll should be….Will this blog ever run out of bRUIN trolls???? Don’t bRUIN your life!
