  • Such a great fb player he was drafted for bb… stupid effin leprachauns > better that those sissy blue bruins

    That one brought a smile. Beane and Samadrzija have something in common–they both study the numbers. Samardzija’s expectancy in baseball is very likely a lot higher than it would have been in football. Of course, he could have played baseball at USC, too.

      Samadrzija looked great yesterday against Toronto.

  • What a sugary sweet game last season!!! Hidari missing multiple FG’s, and that Rudy freshman walk-on obliterating the trOXan TE over the middle on 3 & 7 in 4th Qtr effectively ending the game!!!

    OH!! Mercy Nurse!!!

        Wow, that is scary. Bucket has a bad case USC envy. 2 towels waves and 8 clap for him.

          The guy hates anything related to USC, but has a 24/7 obsession with this blog. Sounds like some serious mental issues

        Did you invite your Stud Nephew go swimming at your house yesterday?? You rascal…

        • Have you sobered up yet? Now referencing something about family members? Where is Gina D?

          • Sally introduced us ALL to her Stud Nephew in a long explicit comment attacking the Cadre…take it up with her.

            What did SUCCdeTrop do to have his/her post deleted?
            Was it the act 2 scene 3 quote from Hamlet…”copulate thou!”

          • gotroy22

            Thereby hangs a tail!

  • Ray Reyes

    Notice Beane didn’t say anything about UCLA.

      He could say it is lower than whale manure in terms of academics and sports, but we all know that.

      Notre Dame has actually won something, they actually have tradition, we respect Notre Dame, they are a worthy rival. public school hasn’t won a rose bowl in 28 years, never won a single BCS series bowl game in the 15 year BCS era, has an 80 yard practice field, and goes on an 1 1/2 hour bus ride to their “home games”. They are not even close to being a worthy rival and never will be.

        Nov 2013: UCLA 35 * SUCC 14 and two, count em, two broken ankles. If SUCC was a horse, they’ve put it down.

          Moral victories don’t count!

        • timtrojan

          You forgot to mention Notre Dame fans don’t sit on this board and piss their pants about all things USC. They have their own boards to talk about Notre Dame football.

          two games ucla won, and that erases everything I mentioned?? are you insane? and before those 2 games, USC won 12 of 13….so by your public school logic, if public school was a bear…..ah, nevermind……By posting on this site, you PROVE your inferiority.

          • UCLA owns LA Football

            Yugo, you’re the one that’s jumping up and down like a chimp. Remember Nov. 2013, Yugo, UCLA Bit*h slaps SUCC all around the crumbing mausoleum 35 – 14. The game wasn’t even that close. And the 12 of 13 bit, didn’t SUCC have have to forfeit a couple of those wins for cheating. Little Petey Pom-Pom didn’t know squat. If SUCC ain’t cheating, SUCC ain’t winning. Helium on.

        It takes 1 1/2 hours to drive 20 miles? Does the bus go 10 miles an hour?

      • SaferInWestwood

        Man and it only takes 80 yards to be beat the Trojan bishes, talk about being inferior, ha!

  • rusoviet

    Ben Factor has it right – save for star top pick NFL QB’s the real money and longevity is baseball. No salary cap and the strongest union in all of professional sports worldwide. BTW with a severe caveat – no guarantee on getting to ‘the show’.

    According to gotroy and betomas, you can only be a “fan” of the football team if you went to school at USC…..Sorry Billy!

    • gotroy22

      Your fanatical obsession and Rain Man rote rants show you have crossed into mental illness, and you didn’t even go to USC. Please go obsess about your real school, CowPolyFan3.0.
