    That $20 bet on UCLA is like $4,000 in the bank! Hundley Heisman, UCLA National Champs, book it!

    • UCLA Bleauz

      $4,000?…Apparently, multiplication is not your strong suit……

      • UCLA Dynasty

        $2,000…. $4,000. Whatever. It’s all money in the bank.

        • ProbationU

          Well..actually it would be $400…but I don’t know where you bank or where you live….but perhaps it would spend like $4000. Love the enthusiasm!

          • TrojanFamily

            He might parlay it with a payday loan. That might get him to $2000 or $4000.

        • UCLA Bleauz

          Invest in a mutual fund…. you’ll get a much better return…..

    • Ray Reyes

      Go to Wang. Go to Wang. ACTUALLY, DON’T. We love seeing the TROLLS make idiots of themselves. And remember, you are on a USC site. So every thread you start, is a USC thread. What idiots.

            were it only a typo. Unfortunately for the school you never attended, the kid really thought he was a Trogan.

    • Tom Oday

      SAY WHAT?

    • TrojanFamily

      What UCLA grad has $20 bucks to burn on a bet?

    • VB

      It would actually be $400.

  • Ray Reyes

    UCLA has a good team. BUT, they haven’t won when it counts. What really has Mora done?

    • UCLA Bleauz

      And who won the Pac-12 South last year?…..

      • timtrojan

        Wow, what an accomplishment. Still waiting for Mora to win a game as underdog or that has a real title. His only accomplishment is being average in a couple of years where USC was on major sanctions.

        • UCLA Bleauz

          Actually, it was ASU, yet further diminishing any meaningful accomplishment, to date, by Mora…..

          • Sark and the Seven Win Wonders

            35-14
            31-21
            Deal with it.

        • Trogan Fan

          aw, the major sanctions excuse! Not the terrible program, horrible coach Kiff excuse? Not the 3 coaches in 1 year excuse? LOL.

          • timtrojan

            Yea, they put sanctions on programs so they get better. You would have to be an idiot and hang out on another teams site to not believe sanctions had a major effect. Kiffin was a partial result of sanctions, no coach wanted to come to program with sanctions looming. Again, lets see how Lord Mora does when the spot light is on cause so far he has zero big victories.

          • UCLA Bleauz

            It’s about overcoming adversity, and USC has accomplished that with 2 x 10 win seasons in the last 3 years……….

          • Trogan Fan

            and I suppose the years of cheating didn’t help SC’s prior success… One only need to look back to the 90′s to see how bad SC was when it wasn’t cheating.

          • timtrojan

            OK, no use dealing with the delusional. Yes, it was a great help having a scum paying Reggie to leave USC. How is the clean UCLA BB program going?

          • anno nimus

            going great!!! why have you heard something, or know something the rest of us don’t? loser.

        • Sark and the Seven Win Wonders

          Inferiors are typically jealous of their superiors. And prone to make excuses. Typical wimpy response.

          • timtrojan

            Inferiors hang on another teams site and get excited about being an average team.

          • Sark and the Seven Win Wonders

            You crack me up, Timmy! Last time I checked, SC hadn’t beaten a rival since 2011, and dust is starting to gather on the blue-painted victory bell. Don’t worry, once Siete chokes and you get a decent coach on board, you guys will get there–perhaps by 2020.

          • timtrojan

            UCLA has not had a title that means anything in the last 20+ years so you must know what that feels like. Again, hats off to you if you guys finally win a game that means something this year but I doubt you guys even win a Pac 12 title. Just beat Oregon or Stanford and I’ll give you guys some props, but I doubt it.

    • VB

      To start, he has embarrassed the Trojans two years in a row.

  • john wolcott

    Changed to percentages, SUCLA has a 5% chance of winning. Not very good.

    Even the champ Florida State has only a 25% chance. That means the Seminoles are probably going to be disappointed this year, along with every team but one.

    My pick: Alabama looks like a decent bet. Just don’t bet the farm

  • Helen

    Where’s Washington (Chris Petersen), Texas A&M (Kevin Sumlin) and Penn State (James Franklin) Scottie?

    • UCLA Bleauz

      Of all of the teams listed, I believe that Sark is the only “new” head coach in the group…..

      • ThaiMex

        In the immortal words of the late James Brown,
        “Please, Please, Please, Please”….Maybe you’ve already forgotten, but during Goat Boy’s 1st season you BONEHEADS were Ranked # 14 in the pre season with about the same odds to win it all. U$c finished 8-5 and 5-4 in Conference (TWO YEARS LATER was the great #1 to UN season). With Goat Boy going 8-5 his first year…and if history repeats itself, SEVEN WIN SARK will likely remain SEVEN WIN SARK.

        Come on…you gotta do better than throwing out this weak stuff. If this is the best you’ve got, we better ask Nubsie to come back.
        fit Un!

      • VB

        You gonna hang a banner for that one, Bleauz?

        • UCLA Bleauz

          Just an observation, Vaginal Boy…. just an observation……

          • VB

            First, it’s Vaginal Burn. Second, what does that observation even imply? You patting yourselves on the back because you are the only team with a new coach to have Vegas odds to win the championship?

            I expected more from you, Bleauz.

          • UCLA Bleauz

            How about Vaginal Bleeding?…..where the F am I patting myself on the back???…..Was I somehow wrong in my observation?……nothing at all was implied…..Heck, I even put the word “new” in quotes to acknowledge the fact that Sark has been with USC before, thus he’s not really new…

          • UCLA Bleauz

            I guess if I were “implying” anything it was simply to support Helen’s comment about the coaches that Scottie was heavily endorsing to replace Kiffin weren’t even listed to have Vegas odds to win the championship for their respective teams….a rather curious observation, no?

  • Sally Cushing

    Well informed sources, some of whom are former players and coaches from both USC and UCLA and some long-time UCLA fans and observers they spoke with in San Bernardino recently, say that the last few Bruin practices have been very, very flat. They say this UCLA team has an awkward personality compared to the teams of the past two years. One source said it reminded him of a golfer who develops a shank he can’t get rid of and then he made an unusual gesture with his foot that appeared to be quite uncomfortable. Informed sources predict UCLA will have 3 losses prior to the game with USC on November 22.

    • Sally Cushing

      Anyone with access to insiders, who hasn’t offended everyone connected with USC, could have reported this information. In the view of many, Reid appears to be a very viable alternative.

      • Sally Cushing

        One last comment on this subject, those of us who are rabid fans of college football and particularly USC or UCLA band together at this time of year and make the rounds to get the inside scoop. Some of us carry our smart phones and notepads with us and do a little business, but for the most part it’s a party/vacation atmosphere among long-time friends and new acquaintances that are made this time of year. We’ve been at this for a few years now. When these insiders talk about the psychological side of football and its players, coaches and teams, it’s always an informative, enjoyable, and lively discussion. Seldom are they wrong.

        • UCLA owns LA Football

          “Sit Sal.” After reading Sal’s gratuitous thread, I had the oddest reaction, the tune “Home, Home on the Range,” popped into my thoughts.

      • Sark and the Seven Win Wonders

        According to insider sources, USC was the best team in the nation two years ago, but ended up being the first NCAA Division I team to finish UNRANKED since, like, the Johnson administration. Inside sources also predicted Barkley would have a glowing, stellar pro career, and be picked in the first round. Keep ‘em comin’, Sally, your posts are hilarious.

        • Jack B

          That was the year you laughable little gutties finished unranked by anyone after a big-time Holiday bowl drubbing (49-19) and a 9-5 record. No surprise there. Typical Bridesmaid U year.

    • UCLA owns LA Football

      Don’t keep us dark Sal, who did those “well informed sources” of yours prognosticate winning the 11/22 UCLA/SUCC Rose Bowl game? Fetch up.

    • Larry Harris

      The golfer can always correct the shank with a few ‘foot wedgies’.

  • Helen

    UCLA football has a long history of choking during big games, so matter what the odds-makers say they have a zero chance of winning the NC.

    • Trogan Fan

      haha, yes, because history definitely dictates the future at Yesterday U!

      • Jack B

        Bridesmaid U, the official and exclusive breeding ground of little gutties, has one split football NC 60 years ago. You do the math idiot. You’re gonna choke like you always do little gutty. It’s in your blood wimp.

        • Sark and the Seven Win Wonders

          If UCLA is the bridesmaid, pUSC is the flower girl. You really should address your superiors with a bit more respect, Jacky boy. Win a game against the mighty Bruins and then you can start spouting off. In the meantime, bow to your masters.

          • Jack B

            Losing little gutties are 5-7 in Rose Bowl; USC is 24-9. little gutties never win Pac-12. It’s always USC, Stanford or Oregon on Bridesmaid U’s throat. Loser little gutties win two in a row and you think you’re great. You never win on the big stage. USC leads little gutties 46-30. USC 11 national championships. little gutties 1/2. Lose on Bridesmaid U. Can’t wait to see you choke again this year, like always. Whine On Bridesmaid follower. Wah, wah, wah…

          • Sark and the Seven Win Wonders

            Touched a nerve, I see? No worries, by 2020 you guys should be approaching relevance again. Beat a rival before you pop off to your superiors, Jacky.

            35-14, with the gutty little trojans giving up before the end of the third quarter. Sad, really.

          • TrojanFamily

            You’d think UCLA actually made a BCS bowl in their history, with this post. Hey, I don’t blame you. UCLA has a two game winning streak against USC. They won the Sun Bowl. That’s as good as it gets over in Westwood. Enjoy this golden age of Bruin football.

    • UCLA owns LA Football

      Sure Red, like when SUCC had a 12 point lead with 10 minutes go against Tixis, and then SUCC snatched defeat from the jaws of an NC victory. Is that what you mean by CHOKING Red?

    SO..

  • anno nimus

    oh boy, based on that picture, there is not too much interest in USC football. at the UCLA practices we had 5 to 10 deep to watch the Bruins practice, and the fans had to drive 40 to 100 miles to get to San Bernardino.

    • Larry Harris

      The proof in that particular pudding will be the game attendance numbers next season.
      Talk is cheap. Your hopes/desires are nothing but cocktail party fodder at best.
