• RegalTrojan

    Here we go, fellow Trojans!!! THE Beatdown Of The Year on the sucla shoplifters is about to commence!!! This is going to be fun!!!

  • USC jojo

    Maria Taylor, who just interviewed Coach Helton, is definitely one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen.

    • RegalTrojan

      Darn, I couldn’t check her out while I was paying attention to the confidence level of Helton. LOL!

      • USC jojo

        Did you see her that time?

        • RegalTrojan

          Yeah, I did. One impressive looking woman!

    • RegalTrojan

      What a brilliant fake by Harris!!! Sensational!!!

      • USC jojo

        I was fooled.

        • RegalTrojan

          So was I. LOL!

        • RegalTrojan

          We’re letting too many big plays for Rosey right now, though.

          • USC jojo

            He’s pretty accurate when he has time.

          • RegalTrojan

            Yep!

  • steveg

    Jack Jones is a loss waiting to happen.

    • RegalTrojan

      Terrible.

    • Michael Guarino

      He’s LOST, steveg. They’ll target him all day. He’s as bad as he was in the Rose Bowl. Hasn’t grown a bit since then.

    • Pac12 fan

      My least favorite player on this team

  • Michael Guarino

    Could any college team win with Jack Jones at corner and Rosen throwing the ball? He’s SO lost.

    • trojan_1972

      Will Rosen ever throw anywhere except at JJ?

      • RegalTrojan

        Probably not.

    • RegalTrojan

      MG, with him, it’s like we’ve got no defense in the backfield!

      • Michael Guarino

        We have to win the shootout, RT —Jones can’t do his job.

        • RegalTrojan

          I have the same feeling about that, MG.

        • RegalTrojan

          They’re exploiting our biggest weakness, MG. Our secondaries. Not good.

    • RegalTrojan

      Thankfully, the gutties got no defense against our run game so far.

    • Pac12 fan

      Probably not

    • Tebow_Obama

      Rosen was abusing the entire SC defense for a while.

      • JustOwns

        For a while doesn’t count if the team eventually loses.

        • Tebow_Obama

          The poster i responded to said Rosen was only abusing one specific Trojan defender and that wasnt true, Rosen abused them al, some more than others.

  • Pac12 fan

    Hopefully Jack Jones wont be jawing tonight based on how bad he has done so far

    • Paul Muad’dib

      He continues to impress (the bad way) every game. He needs to be benched.

    • Michael Guarino

      Small comfort, Paul.

  • Pac12 fan

    Good news is UCLA defense is so bad we should run the ball all night!

    • steveg

      Fred would be ecstatic over that.

  • steveg

    Looks like Baxter has special teams primed to make a large contribution tonight.

  • Paul Muad’dib

    It’s amazing how quickly the ref ran over to stop Fatu from celebrating after the sack. Pac 12 refs are just getting warmed up…

  • steveg

    OH NO, IMAN IS IN THE GAME. GOT HIS FIRST MISSED TACKLE OF THE NIGHT FOR A 1ST DOWN ON 4TH AND 10.

    • trojan_1972

      Any walk-on CBs? Why not give them a shot.

  • Paul Muad’dib

    It’s already about that time to bench biggie and jack. They are absolute liabilities out there.

    • steveg

      You are right, but the replacements are scary also.

      • Paul Muad’dib

        Im more confident with harris and langley. They are only passing to #2 and the tight end.

  • Michael Guarino

    The USC secondary is being exposed. Marshall and Jones are bigger jokes than I thought. Mora is going to target ’em all day. Only way to stop UCLA is go after Rosen. Play after play —until he’s too beat up to throw with accuracy.

    • steveg

      He does get spooked easy and starts to get rattled. They need to put him down hard a few times.

    • Paul Muad’dib

      This is a perfect opportunity for COACHING to take over.

  • Michael Guarino

    Next drive is huge —-we can go up 21-7. Nothing tricky. Just drive it in.

    • Paul Muad’dib

      Exactly what I was thinking. Put your foot on their throat. UCLA is a one trick pony

    • RegalTrojan

      That would’ve made things easier, but didn’t happen. The zebras missed the pass interference by the gutties. We just might be in for a close one, MG.

      • steveg

        Were you really expecting a blow out?

        • RegalTrojan

          Part of me was. It probably was more of a hope.

  • Michael Guarino

    I had a bad feeling Tee was too dumb to just stick with the run and get us to a 21-7 lead.

    • steveg

      HE IS!!

    • USC jojo

      Two play callers is not good.

      Neither is the way the game is going. They need a touchdown or they are allowing the bruins to stick around. So much for that.

      As big as an SC fan I am, maybe a loss to UCLA gets a big name coach.

      • Michael Guarino

        I get it —but, oh, I still hope we win (and Helton is forced to get himself a 1st rate staff).

        • USC jojo

          Our defense is playing good. We need some spark from our offense.

          I don’t want to see SC lose either.

  • steveg

    Who is going to screw up at db this series? JJ or Biggy

  • Ted

    Chuma Edoga…cheater, cheap shot artist!

    • RegalTrojan

      Ted…supporter of shoplifters

      • Ted

        Do you really want to go there? OJ Simpson! Double murder! Trumps all!

        • steveg

          Ted, you need to leave the room, now. Go to bed.

        • RegalTrojan

          There’s a huge difference, poor guttie! Your thieves were convicted!

    • steveg

      Not half as cheap as the entire ucla team.

  • Paul Muad’dib

    The refs have joined the game just in time to save UCLA.

  • Michael Guarino

    It’s the usual so far. So many STUPID penalties —lots of confusion on the USC sideline. We need this touchdown to go up 21-7. Otherwise, we’re playing with fire.

    • USC jojo

      Both teams had over 100 yards in penalties.

      • Michael Guarino

        It sounded so L.A when ESPN pointed out that the audience should EXPECT lots of penalties because the teams were USC and UCLA.

  • steveg

    Here we are again, playing at the level of the competition. Same staff, same results. No run game established, it almost was but Tee decided he needed to pass. Stupid penalties.

    • AtlDDS

      Thank you Coach Wonderlic

  • Tebow_Obama

    Rosen is shredding the Trojans. Defense comes up big again saving Darnold as usual.

  • Tebow_Obama

    Rosen will be the #1 overall pick.

  • Tebow_Obama

    I dont know what you people are watching but if you’re honest with yourself, its been USC thats been getting all the calls. UCLA is the team thats self destructing.

  • CORTEZ THE KILLER

    14 points against a defense that couldn’t stop a high school football team, way to go Gomer & Co

  • RegalTrojan

    That last play by Darnold showed his desire to win this game. Does the rest of the team do just as much? I sure hope so.

    • Michael Guarino

      The last play showed lots of desire but no knack for situational football, RT. Sam could EASILY have run out of bounds and given himself another shot.
      I don’t know if we can overcome our own mistakes, RT.

      • RegalTrojan

        Yes, MG. The team’s personality doesn’t convey such notions as ‘smart’ or ‘opportunistic’. It’s quite dull and one-dimensional.

        • Michael Guarino

          They need to smarten up real fast, RT —-or they’re gonna be in for a MAJOR embarrassment.

          • RegalTrojan

            Yep, for sure, MG. Let’s hope not, though.

  • Michael Guarino

    It’s hard to win close games when (1) Helton uses up his timeouts to resolve confusion on the sidelines and has none left for a crucial failed drive at the end of the half that could come back to haunt us , (2) Sam keeps making the same mistakes he’s made all season, (3) the DB’s have not been coached up and look lost again.
    The worst part is Helton now finds himself in a close game with the superior quarterback on the other side and will be forced to make half time adjustments —–something he’s proven, repeatedly, he has trouble doing.

    • USC jojo

      “Helton uses up his timeouts to resolve confusion on the sidelines and has none left for a crucial failed drive.” This has happened every single game this year.

      This is something that should not be happening. Is there a problem with getting the play in or are Tee and Tyson fighting over who gets to call the next play?

      • Michael Guarino

        Even after time out, they’re confused.

  • RegalTrojan

    The run game disappeared all of a sudden. Can we sustain something good for all four quarters? Ever?

    • steveg

      No offensive philosophy. I am dumbfounded why the run got abandoned.

      • RegalTrojan

        That’s the thing with this team. steveg. They always seem confused and out of focus.

      • Michael Guarino

        We were 3rd and three at the UCLA 25 and easily could have gotten the first down with successive runs.
        [If we, then, scored after the first down— we’d be up 21-7]. Instead we threw to the sidelines and blew the first.
        I think Tee has regressed as a play caller to the point where USC could be in serious trouble. Rosen is gonna just keep throwing —-and we needed a big lead going into half time to give us a little security at the end.

    • Michael Guarino

      It really doesn’t look like it, RT.
      I wouldn’t want to be Helton if he blows this game after losing to Notre Dame.

      • RegalTrojan

        There’s s much riding on the second half of this game for Helton and his future, MG!

        • Michael Guarino

          Hope he’s up to it, Rt. Right now he’s being outcoached —he seems a little stiff and so does the team.

          • steveg

            They are coaching and playing to the level of the competition

          • Michael Guarino

            Maybe not even that much, steveg.

    • AtlDDS

      With this coaching staff? Of course not….

  • Tebow_Obama

    Helton is trying to showcase Darnold in this idiotic “Season Of Sam”. Its about the team, not just one player. Or at least it should be.

  • Tebow_Obama

    Helton and Darnold need to stop trying to compete against what Rosen is doing, Rosen is clearly head and shoulders above Darnold…it ain’t even close.

  • Tebow_Obama

    Get used to the fact that USC is not going to replace Helton, no matter how much he is holding back the talent on this Trojans team.

  • Tebow_Obama

    And Ronald Jones is not going to stick around for another year of this crap coaching wasting his talent.

  • Tebow_Obama

    LMFAO@ the refs trying to keep Helton and the Trojans in this game. No Trojan fan should want to win this way against a team that is as bad as UCLA.

    This is embarrassing.

  • Paul Muad’dib

    I feel like both teams should just leave the field before they embarrass themselves even more.

  • Tebow_Obama

    Watch this play calling for the Trojans…3 and out coming up.

  • Ray

    The D rescues SC again

    • Tebow_Obama

      And once again theyve been on the field way to long already.

  • Tebow_Obama

    You can tell Herbstreit knows theres no way USC would be competitive in the playoff.

  • steveg

    Tell two big plays back to back. Great pic.

  • Tebow_Obama

    And nobody blocked for Jones again…WOW!

  • Tebow_Obama

    3 and out…what did i tell you

  • Tebow_Obama

    Jones got hit and dropped in the backfield, got up and just shook his head. Damn

  • Michael Guarino

    Sam is picking a bad day to be off. He needs to forget the duel with Rosen and concentrate on hitting open receivers for first downs. He hasn’t been focused all day.

    • Tebow_Obama

      Oh no, he and Helton want the big play all the time. LOL!

  • Tebow_Obama

    Yes Sir, Trojans D coming up big!

  • Tebow_Obama

    Again the Trojans D…Nice!

  • Tebow_Obama

    UCLA worst run defense in the nation and Helton and Darnold are throwing the ball. Might be just as well, nobody is blocking for Jones anyway

    • RegalTrojan

      LMFAO!!!

  • Tebow_Obama

    What a gyp, Jones should have gotten that TD.

  • Tebow_Obama

    Trojans D is spent thanks to Helton’s 3 and outs.

  • Tebow_Obama

    Darnold threw into triple coverage…LOL!

  • Tebow_Obama

    UCLA is trying their hardest to give this game away and Helton and staff dont want it.

  • Tebow_Obama

    No blocking for Jones again.

  • Tebow_Obama

    Will Helton ever get a clue and put a FB in to help block? Don’t count on it.

  • steveg

    Anyone notice Jack Jones has not been in for defense?

  • Tebow_Obama

    Anyone notice Darnold hasnt called an audible all game long? I doubt Darnold knows how to read defenses.

  • AtlDDS

    Can this team beat Stanford or WSU in two weeks? If so, how do we not get embarrassed by a quality team in the Fiesta bowl?

    • Tebow_Obama

      They can barely hold the lead against this crap bRuin team. LOL!

      • AtlDDS

        Seems to be the case….

  • Michael Guarino

    GAME 12 —NO IDENTITY.
    #Wow

    • RegalTrojan

      Truth! There’s no getting around it, MG!

  • steveg

    Notice when ucla has the ball everyone is scared to death the db’s will get beat for the tying score? This is against ucla. How do you fix this.

  • Arturo

    Why are they throwing the ball to Steven Mitchell to go up and get it when that is not his game? The sentimentality has got to stop.

  • Tebow_Obama

    Its Official…Helton’s incompetence has rubbed off on the Trojans.

  • Tebow_Obama

    Mora has to be laughing his butt off that his bRuins still being in this game

  • Tebow_Obama

    Every team in the Top 10 have to be salivating about the prospect of meeting up with the Trojans coaching staff in a major bowl game.

  • Tebow_Obama

    Jones was not going to be denied. Good for Jones! Outstanding effort as always.

  • Arturo

    Here comes Pendergast’s soft D as UCLA and Rosen will easily march their way down the field.

  • timmay

    This game is perfect. We all know we need new coaching but we also don’t ever, ever, ever want to lose to UGLY especially. This game points out that we can’t do much even when playing an UGLY team that will have a losing record and probably won’t even be bowl eligible. We can save face, won’t have to get bloodied and embarrassed in the playoffs, and take care of our coaching problem after we get through all this.

    • Arturo

      Good point

    • USC jojo

      If we win the Pac12 Championship, in normal fashion, meaning sloppy, we may get embarrassed against a good team in a bowl game.

      • Linkster

        If we play WA we lose sad to say.

        • USC jojo

          Wazzu? Yes. Stanford may be a better game knowing they are not a four wide receiver spread you out team. They have been playing better since they last played in September and may prove to be too physical for USC. .

        • schammer47

          No,, No, Linkster. The Trojan players, coaches and fans want the Washington State Cougars in the PAC12 Championship Game. It’s not Friday in Pullman. It will be a 6 day short week Friday for the Cougars in San Jose, CA. USC this year is a 4th quarter monster. Our play book comes alive and our defense makes the critical stops. Wash St will be beaten by our Trojans some way, some how.

  • Pac12 fan

    Anybody impressed with this game? Not me

    • Arturo

      I’m a little depressed

  • Pac12 fan

    Still stupid penalties. Please stop!

  • Pac12 fan

    Secondary of trojans sucks

    • Tebow_Obama

      No…they’re wore out from playing man to man all season.

      • Arturo

        Combination of the two

      • Pac12 fan

        Jack Jones at his best. How many times has he been beaten tonight

        • Arturo

          Not totally on him. Miscommunication. Might be worse.

  • Arturo

    I hate to say it but UCLA has shown more heart. More mistakes, but more heart and better game planning.

    • Pac12 fan

      Absolutely.

  • Tebow_Obama

    Give Helton a contract extension…LMFAO!

    • Pac12 fan

      No kidding. This is an uninspiring performance againsta really bad UCLA team. Glad i didnt bet the points

    • Pac12 fan

      Crushed by Notre Dame barely win as a 16 pt favorite

  • Pac12 fan

    Secondary needs to quit the antics . They are awful

  • Arturo

    Fake injury… he’s coming out anyway..free TO

  • Ted

    Face mask…everyone saw it…

    • Arturo

      fake face mask..not called

  • Arturo

    You give Rosen time…. Why blitz Houston, he stinks

  • Pac12 fan

    Rosen looks like the better QB tonight.

    • Arturo

      Yup, and I hate UCLA

      • Pac12 fan

        Good news is Darnold might come back. Herbstreit right about Darnolds strengths and weaknesses

        • Arturo

          yeah

          • steveg

            What do you think they just did with Jered Goff on the Rams. Gave him a year of schooling.

        • steveg

          Who can get him ready for the nfl better, another year of college or a year getting taught in the nfl?

          • Arturo

            Learning how to look through his progressions. Try learning that in NFL.

          • Linkster

            What is he going to learn from this coaching staff.? As much as I hate to say it he is better off leaving.

  • steveg

    Jack jones never fails to fail. Like I said, he is a loss waiting to happen.

    • Arturo

      He expected Safety help. It is like blaming all ints on Darnold when a receiver hits a ball into the air.

      • steveg

        Why does he need safety help on the deep outside on man coverage? He had coverage all the way to the end zone.

        • Arturo

          Look at the replay. Herbstreit called it. Lasley smoked anyone in front of him.

          • steveg

            Herbie was wrong. It was man coverage

  • Tebow_Obama

    And still no FB in for Jones

  • Tebow_Obama

    UCLA had no business being in this game…it should have been an SC blow out.

    • Pac12 fan

      Yep . We are mediocre against mediocre teams

  • Tebow_Obama

    A bad UCLA team exposed Helton and his staff

    • Arturo

      Fire Helton

      • Tebow_Obama

        Thats what I keep saying

  • Tebow_Obama

    Another year under Helton for Darnold and he’ll be a sure 3rd or 4th round pick. LOL!

  • Arturo

    wooohooo…three in a row

  • steveg

    Just another win by an exceptionally talented team that looks like it is striving for mediocrity. Jack Jones should go to the ucla awards banquet, to pick up his mvp trophy.

    • trojan_1972

      Painfully accurate…

    • USCDAN1986

      Thank god the games over.. Lol.. They got a lucky W.

  • Pac12 fan

    Ridiculous game. Rosen looked unbelievable against our secondary

  • Pac12 fan

    My guess is Helton will be thrilled about this performance!

  • Pete Smith

    Glad we got the win, but we sure did not dominate or look like a play off team. We did not put a enough pressure on Rosen

    • Linkster

      USC is not a playoff team. Over hyped and undercoached.

  • trojan_1972

    bRuins dominated line of scrimmage most of the time. Another uninspired effort by a Trohan team that should perform so much better in so many ways.

  • Lynn Langer

    Gutty were the Booins, but I’m happy. Hoping for Wazzu rematch and another whack at NDn the Fiesta. Ok that won’t happen but that’d be my Christmas wish. Damn Irish

  • Paul Muad’dib

    Sam should leave to save himself from Helton. This team has under performed tremendously.

    • GreenFox

      Am I expecting too much? This seems like the most unimpressive 9-2 USC team. It seems like every game goes to the 4th quarter when most shouldn’t. It’s nice that they have a bye week right before the championship. The players can use the rest.

  • Tebow_Obama

    NFL teams dont ask their DB’s to play man on man coverage all game long like the Trojans do.

  • JustOwns

    Where the F**k is 50 – zip, ” I worship the Moron,” 22?

    UCLA played with huge heart but were ultimately screwed (as usual) by their own coaching staff.

    I’m utterly embarrassed for the UCLA’s FB program that JimmyBall and Danny Vin Rose have disgracefully degraded into 2nd tier status.

    • trojan_1972

      For 20 plus years, you have been third tier status, not second tier. UCLA is a .500 program. You always will be. If you make regular coaching changes, you might get a 9-3 season once a decade.

      But now that coaching change will cost you somewhere around $12 million or more. State of CA will not pay for that. And after 20 years of being irrelevant, I don’t think your fan base – what is left of them – 20,000 season tickets sold this year – really cares anymore about UCLA football.

      Time for you to watch bRuin hoops and write Trump a letter of thanks for negotiating the release of the
      “three knuckleheads” (per New York Times headline).

    • gotroy22

      LOL you LOST, get it? 3 straight and Mora is canned! You are as big a loser as Hitlery.
