Crosstown Rivalry Week

It’s Crosstown Rivalry Week and I’m going to showcase pictures from past games all week. Since I wrote in the previous post about the 1988 game featuring Troy Aikman and Rodney Peete, here’s a picture from the contest.

    Show the one where Todd M gives the bRUIN the finger

    • gotroy22

      The 45-42 Classic in 1990.

        You guys should check out his webpage with his artwork. Some pretty out there stuff. Just google his name.

  • Trojans 6942

    I just like to wish everyone a great day.

  • CORTEZ THE KILLER

    Sumlin probably out at A&M, maybe Gomer can hire him to coach the WR’s next year

    • schammer47

      WHO ?

      • CORTEZ THE KILLER

        Google it

    • Tebow_Obama

      Yeah but Gomer or his brother or Tee will still be calling the plays and the rest of the team still won’t be coached up properly so that kind of defeats the purpose of hiring Sumlin or anyone else who knows what they’re doing and having them work under Gomer.

      • CORTEZ THE KILLER

        Swann may take care of that for Gomer

  • Old Trojans never die

    Troy Aikman was a confused kid. Fighting against his namesake must have been weird. That being said, he was admittedly one of the best quarterbacks to come out of UCLA. I also remember Beban beat us up.

    • CORTEZ THE KILLER

      Beban beat USC ONCE, 1965, and that was because McKay got a brain cramp. Norm Dow beat SC in 66, OJ beat ucla in 67

    • gotroy22

      Remember Rodney Peete’s tackle on the one yard line to stop a sure pick six in ’87?

      • CORTEZ THE KILLER

        ucla had the better team just didn’t have what it took to beat SC that day

        • SucKiffin

          Probably Donahue best … that and 1982
          Affholter TD was ???

          • gotroy22

            Donahue never could make it through a season without a hiccup.

      • SucKiffin

        In your Keith Jackson voice
        ‘ ball is tipped into the air and intercepted …. and it might go for 6 … Eric Turner … chased down from behind by Rodddnnney Peete !
        Amazing play by 2 great athletes ( Rod grabbed his face mask … whoops but no call )
        It ended the 1st half

    • Jack B

      Beban lost the one that counted forever, 21-20. Funny how nobody ever talks about the ’65 20-16 Beban Bomb game. But the ’67 21-20 affair and the O.J. 64-yder are endlessly discussed and shown. Strange historical quirk.

  • Jack B

    Aikman’s bruin teams let him down in typical little gutty style. He played well against USC but his little bruin mates couldn’t hold their end of the bargain and USC smacked him down twice, then went on to lose a Rose Bowl game each time.

  • AlohaTrojan

    Don’t be fooled by f ucla’s 5-5 record. They are more like a 1 and 9 team. GO TROJANS!

  • marvienna

    Speaking of QB’s, I remember a couple of Johnson brothers starting a couple of games in the rivalry (Bret at UCLA and Rob at USC). They were some well known QB’s coming out of Orange County.

    If you guys think Rosen has exhibited a little diva behavior, Bret’s got him beat. A total princess who faxed a statement to media when he lost the starting QB job the next season. Then took off to Michigan State.

    Those Johnson brothers were not a high point of the rivalry.

  • Pasadena Trojan

    I like how Ronald Jones out ran the safeties and corners on the 1,000,000 mile run last year. He showed how quick he is or just how slow ugly is. He will have another run like that.

  • Tebow_Obama

    Rodney Peete and Mark Sanchez had good rapport with their teammates. Can’t say enough about having good rapport, goes a long way with a QB and his teammates. WR’s making that extra effort to come back to the ball if a QB happens to be in trouble if protection breaks down, QB being able to count on their WR’s to do that. Remember those days?

    • Tebow_Obama

      Leinart had great rapport with his teammates…and Barkely as well.

      • Tebow_Obama

        Carson Palmer too, he just was a little more mellow.

  • JBKayak

    Sure like the Carroll brought the home & home jerseys back. It’s the closest geographic rivalry, so both teams should wear the home unis….looks so much better

  • Pasadena Trojan

    If you were the head coach at USC and Sc was totally dominating ugly, would you run the score up? I would. Same against ND. One is putting the red headed step child back in its place and the other is telling them to stop SC.

  • I remember that game for buying two scalper tickets on the 50 yard line for $250, and the SUCLA cad who sold me the tickets and who had a ticket next to my friend and me bragging about how he overcharged me
