USC Morning Buzz: A Throwback Helmet

USC.HELMET

I’ve always opposed the idea of USC wearing an alternate uniform but I’d favor a throwback helmet being worn for a game if it looked like these classic 1962 models, sported by receiver Hal Bedsole in the 1963 Rose Bowl.

Bedsole was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame in 2012 and is the first USC player to have 200 yards receiving in a single game. He holds USC’s greatest average-per-catch for a career at 20.94 yards (with 30 or more receptions). And “Prince Hal” was a member of the 1962 national champions. I’ll feature another member of this team later today.

    Classic idea Scott. Uniform changes are to make your team look fresh and excite recruits lets get some older look that will excite the AARP crowd. The same crowd that cares if the shoes are black and watches Fox news.

      Layla you should worry about the Crimson Tide now, the dismal ratings for PMSNBC and your lousy president.

        The name calling hater is at it again…..

          You mean yourself? How many times were you and your son CowPolyFan3.0 banned yesterday, pottymouth? I counted at least a dozen. I loved it when you spoke about yourself in the third person and claimed you were impartial:

          ” UCLA Bleauz > Ray Reyes • 17 minutes ago

          That WOULD be nice, but I go to other sites, such as weAREsc, for this type of information…. Garry P. usually presents these types of reports without the personal biases that Wolfie tends to include with his blog posts…”

          That was hilarious!

            The guy has some mental issues, but continues to live in denial.

          • gotroy22

            You root for a school you never attended and I’m the demented one, CalPolyFan3.0?

          • Tom Oday

            Did you ever stop to think that someone who attended a different school might have grown up a USC fan? Your pompous arrogance toward other colleges is a perfect example of why USC was hit so hard (unjustly) with sanctions.

          • gotroy22

            That’s right Tom, I’m Mike Garrett.

          • TrojanFan3.0

          • TrojanFan3.0

            Yes, you are the demented one, and you continue to reconfirm it

            Wife? You mean your blow up doll Maxine? You haven’t touched a woman in your adult life, CowPolyFan3.0.

          • TrojanFan3.0

            You try way too hard, it’s pathetic

          • gotroy22

            You try way to hard to be normal but it isn’t working, CowPolyFan3.0.

            It’s an equal opportunity blog….. unless you violate the Gina code of conduct…..

          • TrojanFan3.0

            What motivates you to be such a dIc

          • gotroy22

            CowPolyFan3.0, Garry Bleauz may be a rah rah but at least he is clever. You are a waster of food.

            Works for the Daily News to keep up comments.. Or he’s a 15 yr old kid looking for something to do with his time.

          • B.Miller

            oooh.. good one

          • gotroy22

            Wow, that took you a whole day to come up with that witty rejoinder? They are definitely getting their money’s worth at Heritage Hall, B.S. Miller.

          • B.Miller

            Point is, your not worth commenting.. but way to keep up on all my comments.. I do not mind the fans!

    • Tom Oday

      I agree…screw your parents and grandparents! Fight-On/Me-Generation!

      • timtrojan

        Yea, that is what I’m saying. If your going to take that extreme lets just go back to the good old days when the colored boys did not play.

        • gotroy22

          Yes the good old days of the racist Democrat Party.

          • timtrojan

            Have you ever had an original thought Scotty?

          • gotroy22

            You get your daily talking points from Jon Leibowitz.

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

            What an original thought timmy. Your the first person to mention it. Enlighten Scott’s blog with more of your blinding light meditations.

          • gotroy22

            Timmy is really Lane Kiffin’s beautiful but bitter wife Layla. She can’t let go of being a failure at USC.

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

            True, but Johnson’s Great Society Civil/Voting rights laws PO’s the So. Democrats so much, a majority switched their Party affiliation from Democrat to Republican. The GOP became the new segregationist chicken coop base. Little Ricky-Ticky Nixon, exploited the Republican switch to ooze his way back into Presidential politics, etc, etc, etc.

          • gotroy22

            Wrong, the Segregationist Southern Progressive Democrats of J. William Fulbright, George Wallace and Al Gore Sr. instead gave us the modern Democrat Party of Al Gore Jr. and BJ Clinton. You’re inferior public school indoctrination shows once again. Now you racists discriminate against Asians to placate your deluded base.

  • UCLA Dynasty

    Same old SCCC… Always living in the past.

    • UCLA Bleauz

      Blame Scottie for this……..he is the one who CONSTANTLY brings up the past……please don’t generalize…..

  • TrojanFan3.0

    99% of us do not need the history lesson. Please report what is relevant regarding the football team

    • BruinGaveMeThe8Clap

      Thankfully, great stuff about summer workouts on the ESPNLA blog. Here I get to see old black and white photos and trolls…and World Cup posts…and stuff about old SC coaches…ugh.

      • gotroy22

        Did they have details on who ran a button hook by the kelp and who caught that pass before getting hit by the wave?

        • BruinGaveMeThe8Clap

          Nope. But thanks for asking.

          • gotroy22

            Were there any injuries from stepping on a washed up jellyfish?

          • BruinGaveMeThe8Clap

            If a ruin fell in the forest, would anyone notice?

          • gotroy22

            If a rah rah disappeared tomorrow, would anyone in the USC administration really care?

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

            Maybe, but if a SUCCster fell hard into a steep, rocky, forest ravine everyone would cheer.

  • Yale O. Leftwich

    That was an interesting game,especially as the fog rolled in…Bedsole was a dominating player,defensive backs had real problems due to his size and speed…thanks again…
