Rivarly Matters

You don’t think losing to Notre Dame matters? Listen to Brian Kelly. This is where Lane Kiffin really hurt USC. Losing winnable rivalry games. And then the effect of having an interim coach face Notre Dame and UCLA this year.

    To quote one of my favorite trolls: “yawn”

      Appreciate the quote marks.

  • Sark and the Seven Win Wonders

    All I know is that the sanctions end tomorrow, leaving USC no more sorry excuses for losing to both UCLA and ND this year. And next. And in 2016.

    • Jethro G Sabbath

      What’s your deal?

    • Porsche018

      what was public school’s excuse losing 12 of 13 before the last 2?? and what is their excuse for never winning a BCS bowl in the entire 15 years of the BCS system? ….while Oregon, Stanford, Utah, Washington, and Oregon State won BCS bowls?? And if playing with 45 to 50 players while other teams have 85 is an excuse, then maybe public school should try playing with that many players….they wouldn’t sniff even 5 wins a year.

        Golly 018, what’s SUCC basketball excuse(s) for not appearing in the final four in 60 years.

        • Mike 70

          what is ucla’s excuse for NEVER winning a national championship in football?

          • http://www.ivc.com Gotta pinch major SUCC

            UCLA can only CLAIM 1/2 of a NC. No excuses are necessary. What’s SUCC’s excuse in 2006, 12 pt. lead, with 10 minutes to go – SUCC loses to Tixis in final moment. After the game Matty “Hall of Fame” Leinart says SUCC would beat Tixis nine out of 10 times. Boasting after a horrendous loss – pure SUCC. LOL.

          • Jethro G Sabbath

            That was a roundabout way to answer the question!

          • marvgoux1

            f ucla won one in 1954, 60 years ago when they beat us 39-0.

          • Mike 70

            I believe they won a half, they split with someone else.

          • gotroy22

            So the 4 we “split” with in 1939, 1974, 1978 and 2003 don’t count?

          • http://www.ivc.com Gotta pinch major SUCC

            None SUCC’s or UCLA 1/2 count. Why would any University take credit for a voted and shared NC. BTW 22, all of SUCC’s “claimed” NC were voted and shared with other College teams in the same year. Real, actual NC’s are settled by tournament competition.

        • TrojanFan3.0

          Always changing the subject when the heat starts to rise, pathetic.

          Go back to the playground the kids miss you!

    • Helen

      Actually if you understood sanctions you would know the effect lasts a couple years after sanctions are lifted as it will take awhile to get back to the 85 scholarship level. But facts seem to confuse the UCLA scabs.

      • SaferInWestwood

        But “Our 75 are better than your 85″, no?? Take a while to get back to the 85 scholarship level, oh Helen every year SC has been on sanctions they’ve had the right to have 75 scholarship players on the team, didn’t you get the Wolfman’s breakdown on SCs sanctions, so what you’re really trying to do is not make an excuse while making an excuse… .

        • UCLA Bleauz

          No excuses from me. ….USC had the same Pac-12 record as UCLA (6-3) and the same number of total victories (10)…..you may recall that we played only 12 players on defense during the last few games of the 2013 season. …and still finished in the top 20……fact…..not excuses. ..

          • Helen

            Agree. I’m actually proud of the team the last three years under sanctions. Yes Kiffin sucked as a head coach, but the bottom line is they played pretty well.

          • http://www.ivc.com Gotta pinch major SUCC

            Yes Hilary, the 7-6 2012 season was especially gratifying. And though you refuse to admit it, w/o Coach O, the 2013 season would have been worse.

          • Jethro G Sabbath

            You should post more often. Sometimes a whole hour goes by without one of your nuggets showing up.

          • TrojanFan3.0

            The kind that sink in the toilet

          • http://www.ivc.com Gotta pinch major SUCC

            Gosh thanks.Jet. I wish you had something original to post.

          • Jethro G Sabbath

            Don’t try to turn this around to me.
            If you’re gonna troll, troll hard!!!!!
            You should be putting up at least four per hour.

          • UCLA Bleauz

            Dude is one of the weaker UCLA trolls in trolling history…..not even close to the HOF caliber trolls, such as C-Buck….

          • Jethro G Sabbath

            He probably only uses one screen name too.
            How can you be a serious troll when you can’t even have a conversation with yourself?

          • http://www.ivc.com Gotta pinch major SUCC

            You would certainly know about talking yourself.

          • http://www.ivc.com Gotta pinch major SUCC

            Four posts per hour!? In that case Jet, you should be talking UCLA Bleauz.

          • UCLA Bleauz

            Something original?…. like “yawn”?…….

          • http://www.ivc.com Gotta pinch major SUCC

            “Yus”!

          • Mike 70

            He is stupid, has no job or family, what else is there to do.

          • http://www.ivc.com Gotta pinch major SUCC

            Mikey needs a tickle from his Bonobos.

          • gotroy22

            Helen admits Kiffin sucked? Alert the media!

          • http://www.ivc.com Gotta pinch major SUCC

            Are you sure that’s what Hilary/Helen meant?

        • Helen

          Like I said… facts seem to confuse the UCLA scabs.

          • gotroy22

            Scabs? They are taking the place of striking workers? More Helenian logic.

      • http://www.ivc.com Gotta pinch major SUCC

        Who can forget Kiffy’s out spoken 2011 “what me worry’ attitude re: the sanctions. It was the very same year Kiffy out recruited UCLA by a wide talent margin and the year b4 SUCC’s incredible “Unfinished Bidness” season. SUCC all mouth than and all excuse since 2012.

    • SaferInWestwood

      Great handle, reminds me of one hit wonders from the 70s yikes!

  • UCLA Bleauz

    BTW…. what is a “Rivarly”????…and does it really matter?????

    • Sark and the Seven Win Wonders

      It’s like living dangerousrly – just need to be sure you step lighlty.

    • ThaiMex

      I guess it really doesn’t matter to you knuckleheads when you lose….’cause it only matters when you’re on the winning side, right?
      Typical RAH RAH garbage..Just remember…your 75 are better!
      fit Un!

      • UCLA Bleauz

        Actually, Rice Chex, in the Las Vegas Bowl last year against Fresno State, our 44 were better than their 85……FACT!!!!

        • http://www.ivc.com Gotta pinch major SUCC

          And now SUCC is claiming that 2014 Fresno State mausoleum game is a heavyweight non conference FB game. The team blews says SUCC’s 44 were better than their 85, has lost its # 1 QB and #1 and #2 receivers to the NFL. Bar the door Katy, cause SUCC’s got another cream puff schedule,

          • UCLA Bleauz

            I was referring to last year, Major Pinch a Loaf…..but your selective reading skills prevented you from seeing that. ….

          • http://www.ivc.com Gotta pinch major SUCC

            No kidding. Your ability to point out the obvious is frightening. Unfortunately blew, SUCC is claiming Fresno State is a heavy duty 2014 non conference FB opponent. But you, pinche, and I know that is a load of SUCC.

          • UCLA Bleauz

            Fresno State is a better opponent than Virginia and Memphis, sweetheart……And Little Petey knew just a much as John Wooden…..please…

          • SaferInWestwood

            The Mountain West!?!?!?

          • UCLA Bleauz

            I assume by your exasperated comment, that you don’t have any respect for the Mountain West Conference?…..and that’s ok……because teams like Boise State, San Diego State, Fresno State, Utah State, Nevada thrive on being overlooked and playing the role of the underdog…..I guess Colin Kaepernick isn’t any good……

          • SaferInWestwood

            Yeyyyy you found the 2 exceptions in MWest history good for you… .

          • UCLA Bleauz

            StupiderInWestweird you have made your disdain for the Mountain West Conference quite clear….hooray…..enjoy your cream puff schedule…anything less than winning Pac-12 South this year will be a complete and utter failure for UCLA….

          • http://www.ivc.com Gotta pinch major SUCC

            I’ve not claimed UCLA has scheduled rugged Non-conference games. What I’m saying blews, for the umpteen time: SUCC has a 2014 cream puff FB schedule and SUCC will still finish 7 – 5.

          • UCLA Bleauz

            So then you ADMIT that UCLA have cream puffs on their schedule??? STOP WAFFLING!!!…. and you are way too much of a coward to lay any kind of a wager with me on your stupid 7-5 prediction… at least anni numus has the huevos to lay down some cash….

          • TrojanFan3.0

            Does the Daily News pay you to act like an a**hole?

          • SaferInWestwood

            What are you saying, The Mountain West is as tough to play in as the PAC-12, B1G and some would argue it matches up from top to bottom to the SEC! Find me a peeeeeeeenis rider Trojan who would say different. ..

    • gotroy22

      It only matters when we win.

      • UCLA Bleauz

        On that, we can agree…..

  • Arturo

    Sark has to pull these games out. BTW Eddie O lost the most winnable last year in South Bend..

  • Helen

    Man crush.

  • john wolcott

    Scott, Scot, Soct, Stoc
    Most posters don’t make typo mistakes, and yet you, the blog owner, make them all the time.

  • LamontRaymond

    Don’t forget that Kiff beat Notre Dame and Oregon on the road – when SC was double-digit-dogs in each – the year before he was fired….. not bad….

    • TrojanFan3.0

      The wolfman never looks for the good in anything. It’s helped him build a huge fan base. hahaha!!!!!

  • john wolcott

    I found that Kelly rave disgusting
    Do kids today relate to that kind of hyperbole rah rah speech making?– I don’t think so.
    I cannot imagine John Mckay or Pete Carroll or Nick Saban acting that way. They would have a more calm yet intense speech to rally their boys.
    Try some dignity Kelly, and I might find you relevant

    • ThaiMex

      he won didn’t he? You don’t think “GOOBER” resorted to the same tactics? Do you think all he did was buy the kids donuts and In n’ out Burgers? Kiffin came across like Truman Capote…the schtick wouldn’t have worked with him…people would have laughed! Go with what you’ve got, and………..
