USC Morning Buzz: Clarence Davis In Today’s Player Spotlight

Clarence Davis probably never got the attention he deserved but is definitely worth another look. Davis was an All-American in 1969 and two-time All-Pac-8 selection. He led USC in rushing in both seasons (1969-70) after he transferred from East Los Angeles College.
Davis gained 1,351 yards for the 1969 team that won the Rose Bowl. He also led the Pac-8 in kickoff returns.
Davis then spent eight years with the Oakland Raiders (1971-78) and was on their Super Bowl XI-winning team.

          • Jack B

            I thought only Wolfie could make you blush.


          • jealous again, Jackie??

          • Jack B

            I never get jealous over what I can’t have.

            Sincerely, congrats to you and Wolfie. I know I speak for the entire blog when I say how happy we are for the Troll and Wolfie. It’s got a great ring to it, don’t you think?


          • UCLA Bleauz

            Trollfie has a kind of a clang to it……

          • i know jealousy when i see it. the lengthy denial is always a dead giveaway.

          • Jack B


            Short enough?

          • I DO love the wolfman… a BROTHER!!!

            Jackie, no one likes an old grouchy homophobe….remember Nubsie!!


          • Jack B

            So, you like, I mean love, another guy. I understand Crotch Boy. You’re gay. Fine. No biggee. But how can you like, I mean love, a guy who wears the same old dirty sweatshirts every day. That…I don’t get.

          • you sound curious to me….never too late to change, lover.


          • Jack B

            You’re the one with the pitiful mancrush on Wolfie, Crotch Boy.

            The rest of us ain’t gonna change. I guess you can still dream, Trolfie.

          • OMG!! You are RELENTLESS with your flirty chat!!

            Stop flirting and send me a friend request lover….you’ll be whimpering like a pup when I’m done with you!!

      Any team – any franchise any ownership is better than the lousy stinking Rams!

  • Ron Fleishman

    Thanks Wolf, a great under appreciated player in Trojan history.

  • timtrojan

    Please let the season start soon so Scotty can start telling us how each win was underachieving and each loss he predicted. Also, dig up every ex-Trojan who is having a good year.

  • Helen

    Scottie: if you’re going to continue with these past player profiles, please include what they are doing today – thanks.

    • UCLA Bleauz

      Besides incompetence, why doesn’t Wang have a similar “Player Spotlight” series for UCLA?…… just asking…….

    • Jack B

      Be serious. Wolfie has no more ability to actually currently profile these past players than a simple-minded Troll would have.

    A quiet day on the blog.
