Pick The Score

I made my prediction this morning, now it’s your turn. The spead is around 16 points. But USC has a penchant for making games close that it should win easily.

    45-17…USC is focused and motivated, Mora has lost the team. Toilet bowl is the only thing to play for


    • 04Trojan

      If that. Gotta get to 6 W’s first.

      • Pasadena Trojan

        More importantly, the ruin scum need two more losses to ensure they stink and suck at all times.

        • gotroy22

          After we thrash them they will get abused next week by Oski the Bear!

          • JustOwns

            Kinda like the abuse (well deserved) Roy “wanna lollipop” Moore is receiving.

            UCLA 35 – bozo u 31……..

          • gotroy22

            You mean the well deserved abuse Minnesota Democrat Senator Al Franken (let’s r*pe CBS journalist Lesley Stahl) is receiving?

          • Timothy Apple ONLY


          • JustOwns


            The Moron screams and shouts about Al Frankenstien’s(sic) indiscretions with women.

            Yet at the same time the Moron ignores his own legal problems with 12 women charging him with se*ual misconduct; he also remains totally silent regarding, Roy “What’s your name child” Moore, underage se*xul assualt allegations.


          • gotroy22

            Hey Owns do you agree with Mika and Democrat NY Senator Gillibrand that BJ Clinton should have resigned in January 1998 when the 50 year old president was discovered to be doing a 22 year old subordinate in the Oral Office? Should Democrat Minnesota Senator Al Franken resign for molesting an unconscious actress? Should Democrat NJ Senator Menendez resign for his frolicking with underage prostitutes?


          • gotroy22

            You Morons scream and shout about feminism when you are the biggest pervs around. Are you wearing your hat today?

          • Steve B.

            Your politics good, your school sucks in athletics! Way too many conservative Trojans from the old days roaming the region.

      • Gabby

        Toilet bowl = outhouse behind the practices field

    • Grammymb

      I’ve said it before. The Tidy Bowl man will not have them. Maybe need to strive for the Barf Bowl.

      • Gabby

        I blow to the knee caps for the ruin fanbase…..OUCH!

    • Ben Factor

      Strange things happen in rivalry games.

    • Pete Smith

      I hope your right


    USC 38
    ugly 23

    But if Gomer, Fredo and Tee11 get cute with the play calling instead of just ramming it down their throats, then……………..

    • Gabby

      I like your thoughts, mimus the name calling

      • Ben Factor

        Gabby, I had no idea just how close Darnold’s and Rosen’s stats are this year:

        Darnold: 243of383/3198/24/11

        Rosen: 237of391/3094/21/9

        Overall S&P+ O rank: USC #14; UCLA #16

        S&P+ Rush O rank: #40, #45

        S&P+ Pass O rank: #7, #30

        Overall S&P+ D rank: #56, #122

        S&P+ Rush D rank: #50, #98

        S&P+ Pass D rank: #11, #65

        So USC’s passing O is better than UCLA’s passing D (rank differential of 35), but not as much as USC’s rushing O is to UCLA’s rushing D (rank differential of 58).

        UCLA’s passing O is 19 spots below USC’s passing D, but UCLA’s rushing O is only 5 spots below USC’s rushing D.

        So, yes, for USC’s O, emphasize the rush but don’t lose sight of the significant edge in passing as well. That would seem especially true if UCLA is extremely intent on defending the run.

        For UCLA’s O, it’s not as clear whether to emphasize the pass, or the run. They are not quite as good as USC’s D at either, but the differential is not too bad in either.

  • peter

    Either 63-35 or in a low score game. …..49 -24…Rojo and Carr both need oxygen after multiple Long TD runs.

  • PE2011

    Every week, teams lose games that they “should win easily” because winning’s not as easy as it seems to someone who’s never won anything or competed at anything,

  • Arturo

    Troy 34
    Westwood 28

  • gotroy22

    Trojans 50
    ruins 0

    • Grammymb

      I like 52-0. Money McGrath gets a 52 yarder.

      • Michael Guarino

        Hopefully, we don’t need him.

        • steveg

          Hopefully he is healed enough to hit the big one if we need it.

          • Michael Guarino

            Here’s my WISH, steveg: We don’t need McGrath tomorrow —and he’s all healed up for the Pac 12 CG (where we very well may need him).

      • Pudly76

        McGrath’s backup (our punter) was a kicker for St John Bosco in high school, if needed. Pretty good actually.

  • David Stewart

    For some odd reason I have this queasy feeling in my stomach about this game. I can’t help but think the coaching staff will get too cute on offense and the defensive backfield will get picked apart by a desperate Rosen passing attack. I really hope we are focused on this game as opposed to looking forward to the championship game. I am anticipating a close contest. I am not as confident as most are about this game. Last team with the ball wins it. Score 41 to 38. Winning team? Toss up.

    • Grammymb

      Guess you shoulda had lunch today. Have some dinner and your tummy will be fine. 52-0.

    • Michael Guarino

      It’s gonna be fine, David. USC is ready, willing and able to kick the living crap out of UCLA.

    • JBKayak

      Causes of concern for SC: no FG kicker, already clinched division, rivalry game you gotta throw out the records, UCLA season defining game with a W and Rosen can read secondaries. Luckily, Mora is a bit*h and USC found it running game, Bruins (#129 rush defense) have no answer for it. It takes a huge effort to beat Sam Darnold and the Bruins with Mora don’t have it. USC 42-27 dominating the time of possession. FightOn!

    • Jack B

      Why would USC be looking forward to the championship game when we don’t even know who we will be playing?

      • Sandy Underpants

        Miami, obviously.

  • GT

    48-21 SC

  • JBKayak

    Mora on UCLA’s confidence, “we’re in a different mindset than USC”

    • Michael Guarino

      What on earth does Mora mean? Any ideas, JBKayak?

      • JBKayak

        Mora was trying not to give bulletin board material, a la Lou Holtz, but is too emotional of a dude and he comes off like a victim whining. He mentioned injuries as a concern, weak sauce.

        • Michael Guarino

          That sounds about right.
          Sure hope we get to see him freaking out (1) on the sidelines and (2) in the post game presser……

  • Timothy Apple ONLY

    USC 42 ucla 17

  • AlohaTrojan

    Is Porter Gustin playing in this game?

    • Michael Guarino

      He hasn’t practiced —-so, no. But he could be in the Pac 12 CG.

  • hoohoolianFUCLA


    • Ben Factor

      I know you hate them, Hoo, but that would be a complete slaughter!

      • hoohoolianFUCLA

        Tee and Darnold should put up at least 50 (the way Toledo rang up Bowling Green) and the D will chip in a score. Rosey will get some points.

        There is far more talent on USC’s O than Toledo has and the bRuin D is very much equal to BG’s.

  • Old Trojans never die

    I feel a disturbance in the force, something I haven’t felt since Ted Smith or Larry Tolner. Where the superior army loses to a brash band of rebels.
    Nah who am I kidding? USC 42 Ucla 14

  • Sandy Underpants

    63-55 (4OT)

  • Jack B

    USC celebrates 50th anniversary (to the day) of the famous 21-20 crusher (little gutties were never the same) by winning 51-38.

    • Ben Factor

      Not a bad guess. For UCLA to score 38, it will take a heck of a game by Rosen. For USC to score 51, it won’t be as hard–they just need to consistently stay out of their own way.

      • Jack B

        It’ll be Honker Rosen’s last real shot at doing anything important in L.A. I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt. Our CBs aren’t exactly nails.

      • Gabby

        “they just need to consistently stay out of their own way.”

        Exactly…eliminate the mental penalties and lackadaisical turnovers. The play calling inside the 5 yard line needs to be better

  • Tebow_Obama

    A USC loss to UCLA could be the Trojans biggest win in years…Clay Helton will have sealed his fate. Trojans should win this game 44-10 on talent alone.

    27-25 UCLA if Helton didn’t properly address the undisciplined play we’ve seen from the Trojans that has seemed to have gotten worse over the last few games.

  • jim

    I’d say 49-28 USC

  • Rick

    With this years Team it is virtually impossible to accurately pick a score ?

    Which Offense shows up, hopefully “not” [ @ End of the 1st Quarter, USC 0 – Colorado 0 ] !

    The Trojan Defense keeps bailing the Trojan Offense which moves the ball up and down the field but doesn’t score enough until the “D” is exhausted in the 2nd half where the Offense picks up the slack !!

    I just don’t see Rosen doing much except for running for his life through the entire game !!!

    Remember, the “Hit” on Darnold called out by a Bruin “punk” circa preseason has now reversed back on Rosen and this “Hit” could get/be ugly ? !!

    Does RoJo run for 300+ yards, does Darnold pass for 300+ yards ???

    If so, USC 47 – UCLA 13 !

    If not, USC 33 – UCLA 23
