Morning Buzz: USC Compared To Uruguay In World Cup List


With the World Cup in full force, the Tuscaloosa News compares all 32 countries to college football programs. Some are quite good, such as saying Spain is Oregon: “Throughout history regarded as a solid team. In the last couple of decades transformed itself into a total powerhouse.”

England is Notre Dame: “Great tradition, great fans. Should be good. A lot of people hope they are good. They are no good.”

But USC is compared to Uruguay: “Despite wild oscillations, a top tier team that no one is going to underestimate.”

I think USC, with all its national championships, deserves a bigger country, like Germany or Italy. What country would you give USC?

    Trolls are drawn to Norway, right?

  • UCLA Bleauz

    Recently, I would suggest the Netherlands….doing so much, despite having a limited population (sanctions)…..

  • Helen

    Scottie: a bigger country doesn’t mean a better football/soccer team. Some of the best teams are from small, underdeveloped countries.

    Dear Charlie: Cyber-Bully, really? One essential prerequisite is the perception, by the bully and/or you of an imbalance of power. I really got to you Charlie and you deserved it and Charlie you’ve had it coming for a long time. You think I’m a Cyber-Bully because I called you out for being a little snot, who doesn’t know anything about quarterbacks or big-time college football? So you flagged my post and the moderator removed it? You’ve never posted anything that would suggest that you know anything about quarterback or big-time college football or much about anything else for that matter. Most of the time you’re posts are just disgusting. You have a excrement fixation and you frequently attack 17 and 18 year old graduating high school athletes who are starting their college careers at USC, instead of the other school – in which case you would be signing their praises. You don’t participate on your favorite school’s blog because you have nothing to offer, so you wouldn’t get the attention you crave. There are some great fans, good people, over there on the other school’s blog. One of them is my cousin, who was a stud fullback and earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees at that school. Ironically he works for me now. I hasten to add he’s well paid and he earns every dime of it. Wake up Charlie, guys like you never get THE girl or THE job or THE promotion. If you can’t take a hit from a girl, who called you a little snot, it’s for darn sure you don’t have what it takes to run a route over the middle on 4th and 3. And if you don’t have what it takes to run a route over the middle on 4th and 3 (metaphorically speaking) you’ve got nothing Charlie, nothing. You’re empty. My cousin used to beg in the huddle for the over the middle route on 4th and 3. Why? Because, like I said Charlie, he’s a stud. Begin directing your energy toward improving yourself first Charlie. Until you do so, you are and you will continue to be a LOSER Charlie. Love, Sally

    • wow, Sally that is some hard-hitting stuff. especially the bizarre fixation on your “stud nephew”.

      however, you once again included personal attacks, and i honestly don’t know if your post will withstand the scrutiny of the Moderator.

      good luck with that.

      • UCLA Bleauz

        Did we just stumble upon a lovers quarrel?……

        • are you kidding? no one can take the place of her Stud Nephew!! plus he’s a Bruin. like the Cosa Nostra, Bruins don’t mess with other Bruins’ old ladies.

          and in this case REALLY old.

          • TrojanFan3.0

            You’re talking about the Mustache Petes, confused idiot

          • gotroy22

            More incoherent babbling from the Cow Poly expert.

        • hey gina-D deleted by comment…..SALLY is the one who referred to her “Stud Nephew” not me.

          if this bizarre fixation made some people uncomfortable, take it up with Sally Cushing!!

          (i wonder what her Stud Nephew thinks of her splashing her feelings about him all over a trOXan blog??? we gotta get off the AIR!!!)

      • Mike 70

        looks like it made Charlie. are you at home in your Mom’s basement with all the lights out in front of your keyboard? you are all excited aren’t you? in your own little loser world. Sally got it right. Guys like you NEVER get anything of importance because weird.

    • The smell of dead Tuna.

    • The post was removed because it contained a personal attack on another commenter.

      Often we will try to edit comments to retain them, but sometimes we don’t have the manpower to devote as much time to our comments section and instead simply delete comments that violate our comment policy.

      Keeping comments free from personal attacks on other commenters, swearing (even “disguised” swearing), and posted from original singular accounts that don’t attempt to ridicule or mimic other commenters will ensure that the comments are left standing.

      Thanks for reading.

        Does calling people “dummies” and “idiots” not qualify as swearing or a personal attack??? Sounds like it to me. Promote positivity Gina.

        • take a knee, Wahhhhhn Carloads.

        • The personal attacks we are filtering generally reference hygiene, sexual orientation or practices, or some other personal aspect.

          We’re doing the best we can to promote a positive environment, but the best force in that fight is you, the individual commenter. Keeping the discussion elevated and ignoring any comments that revert into back-and-forth exchanges about one another generally work against the attempt to keep things positive.

          In short (too late?), your best tactic is to flag the offending comment rather than respond to it.

          Thanks for reading.

        you throw out the same crap (oops) every time. what are you on auto post. get a life…

        • UCLA Bleauz

          Did you mean krap?….

          • Mike 70


      • ummmm, there is another personal attack in her last post… fact it is one long bitter attack job!! just sayin’!!

    • Juan Carlos

      And this officially ends the so called era of the cadre. They may try to persist in the future with more of the same bashing and negativity, but the dawn of good and positivity is upon us. With this, I wish wellness to all my friends and brothers who constitute the cadre and can only hope they continue to learn from this lesson that Sally has taught them.

      Farewell cadre. We hardly knew you.

    • anno nimus

      I can’t believe I actually wasted 1.5 minutes of my life reading your garbage, I had to flag your comment for being a complete WASTE of my time.

    • ThaiMex

      Big Hat, no cattle…What a waste.
      fit Un!

  • LamontRaymond

    Italy is about right actually. Wins in several different eras. Always tough.

  • easy one wolfman, Southern Cal would most closely resemble Egypt.

    both are run by extremist former trOXans (o’Hadden and Morsi)

    both Egypt and Southern Cal are accused of breaking the law (per the NCAA and Amnesty International).

    both are located in desolate areas with heavily guarded borders.

    finally both have ancient dilapidated monuments that are inexorably eroding into dust: (the Pyramids and the Masoluem)

    oh, Chucker-Bucker, you’ve done it AGAIN!!!!

    • UCLA Bleauz

      And UCLA would be Guam…..because they both have 4 letters….and they’re located in the middle of nowhere….

      • we are nestled in between Brentwood, Bel-Air and Beverly Hills….you call that nowhere??

        whatta Dummy.

        • TrojanFan3.0

          …..but you live in a single wide in the middle of the IE, pathetic

    • Juan Carlos

      I want to make sure I understand, do you refer to yourself as “Chucker-Bucker”? That is…interesting.

      • Hey Wahhhhn Carloads, quit “up-voting” yourself. bad form, hermano.

        • Jethro G Sabbath

          Good point.
          He should sign out first and then “up-vote” himself as a guest like you do.

          • stop antagonizing me, Inspector Jauvert….you know, in the novel, Jauvert ends up realizing he spent years wrongly persecuting an innocent and decent man, and this realization, being too much for him to bear, leads Jauvert to commit suicide.

            please don’t let this happen to you, Jezro.

          • Juan Carlos

            I’m sorry nice person. I am not familiar with that story. Doesn’t sound interesting to me. I am sorry if I get you all pent up with anger and hostility. That is not my intention. I only try to promote proper dialogue and discussion. I was only asking if you really call yourself “Chucker-Bucker” to see if you are just joking. Only because it sounds somewhat childish. I suppose that is what someone does when they take the personna of a child in a chocolate factory. I guess you are just being consistent. Well done Chucker-Bucker! I will call you Chucker-Bucker as well. It is cute.

          • Sorry wahhn, but you can’t even understand the simple minded Dummies on this blog, you haven’t the slightest chance of comprehending classic literature. So although I would normally be glad to explain the story to you, unfortunately it is simply beyond your comprehension level. Sorry.

            Try reading some T-fail or Nubs comments.

          • Juan Carlos

            That’s okay. I understand that you don’t really understand classic literature and can only comprehend children’s movies like Charlie.and his chocolate factory. I don’t mind. You are nice person anyways. Have a blessed day and make sure you brush well. You don’t want all that chocolate giving you cavities now, do you little Chucker Bucker.
            Sleep tight, and don’t let the bed bugs bite. Hopefully mama will leave the night light on for you.

            Sweet dreams Little Chucker Bucker….so cute.

            P.S. I hope my response doesn’t get you so mad like my previous posts did.

        • Juan Carlos

          I don’t understand. Please elaborate. Thank you.

    • TrojanFamily

      FYI Morsi hasn’t been President in Egypt for well over a year. Sisi was elected President this year in an election boycotted by much of the opposition.

      Like pretty much all of your posts, this one is dated and factually incorrect.

      A suggestion: you might want to log out of this blog every once in awhile and check out the real world. It’s not as scary as you think.

  • by the way, wolfman the above picture is a good comparison to what the UCLA front seven will look like compared to the freshman you trOXans are planning on starting this season!!

    unfortunately our front seven are a very nasty bunch, i hope they don’t get too carried away….

    • UCLA Bleauz

      By the front seven, you’re referring to the players wearing the yellow jerseys?…

      • ummm, i was thinking the mustard and kechup guys were the trOXans???

        i can HARDLY WAIT to see our front seven big uglys go after your wittle freshman this season!!!

        • UCLA Bleauz

          You always did have a thing for little children, didn’t you, Bucket…..thank goodness for Megans Law…..

          • TrojanFan3.0

            All the saved places on his GPS are playgrounds …..creepy!

  • Mike 70

    What country would represent ucla? My guess would be Afghanistan. A bunch of drug smuggling, backward tribes that haven’t changed in centuries, broke and need assistance from anyone who will give it to them. Crooked, corrupt and muslim.

    • Mikey need round the world Bonobo love.

      • Mike 70

        weak as usual. that is all you got?

        • UCLA Bleauz

          Sometimes I wonder if a hamster is scampering across his keyboard, based on some of the nonsense he writes…..

    • TrojanFamily

      UCLA would be Belgium. Pretty irrelevant until a recent run of success. Everyone’s favorite dark horse who likely won’t perform as well as the casual fans who pick them because of this dark horse status think they will.

      Plus both UCLA and Belgium are Scott’s favorites.

      • Jethro G Sabbath

        Is Belgium known for supporters who spend hours on end on rival countries message boards under a multitude of different user names, often conversing with themselves?

        • TrojanFamily

          No but neither is UCLA.

          Trollistan though would….

          • Jethro G Sabbath

            Fair enough but maybe they have a single follower who contributes to this misperception.

          Try writing something of consequence instead of Heritage Hall pablum, rah rah.

    • anno nimus

      22 with yours

  • USC/OU

    ITALY– The Romans were descendants of the Trojans !! Also look up the Elymians for more info.

    • In myth only, Rome grew up at the knee of Etruscans.

      • rusoviet

        Virgil alluded to Aeneas’ impact upon Rome as did Homer in the Iliad stating Aeneas was saved many times by ‘the gods’ for higher purposes after the Fall of Troy.

        Aeneas married Lavinia the daughter of King Latinus and having successfully defeated Lavinia’s spurned suitor Turinus – the rest is history.

  • TrojanFamily

    I’ll bite: USC is realistically Argentina. An exciting club with a great deal of buzz but has underperformed recently. A lot of promise going forward but has recently been managed terribly. But everyone talks about them and love to watch their games. Very polarizing team.

  • anno nimus

    I would compare USC to Iraq, bunch of thugs, and the campus represents a frickin war zone with the number of dead bodies found on or near the school.

  • rusoviet

    USC = Krasnaya Sovietskija……
