Where’s The Buzz?

Besides the fact it was like a cello recital (to paraphrase Jim Healy) when the game ended to mere silence, there was an attempt at a “We are SC” chant that fizzled out at the Coliseum. This was not the normal Crosstown Rivalry reaction.

    It is when you play down to the level of Molly mediocre programs like UCLA. Like it or not, this is the new normal for USC football with Helton.

        What does killer ball look like?

  • Sas

    Where are we ranked?

    Opinions?

    • trojan_1972

      #11 in AP.

      One of the AP pollsters has Trojans at number 6, ahead of OSU, Auburn, Georgia….hard to figure that one out.

      Wolf has Trojans at number 14. Lowest ranking among all AP writers is at number 16 (Austin, TX writer).

      • ItsAllAboutTheBall

        Texas Writer must have been at the game in September and saw what we did

        • trojan_1972

          And he hasn’t changed his mind since then…

    • 04Trojan

      Not sure I feel that we deserve that, SAS. W’s are nice, but something’s missing. I say we stay where we’re at in the CFP rankings.

    • steveg

      Sam I don’t see USC moving, nothing happened above them to create a slot. 11

    • NextUp

      Since SC has exactly one win over a Top 20 team (#20 Stanford), and knowing that the team crashes around the field shooting itself in the feet in every game, lucky not to be 8-4, with a QB who’s wildly inconsistent and rattled on almost every snap, I’d say #19 seems about right.

    • Sandy Underpants

      in CFP SC should move up to 8. Everyone played cupcakes and Notre Dame nearly lost to Navy. The CFP voters want to keep the Pac-12 champ within reach of a playoff berth, even though they don’t deserve the last spot ahead of Oklahoma, but if Oklahoma loses, then bingo. Destination Bama.

      • Sas

        Herbie wants SC in but it will be extremely difficult.

  • CORTEZ THE KILLER

    I said this yesterday, Wolf reads the blog for sure

      You would know

  • steveg

    It is simply a reaction to expectations of a blow out and USC playing to the level of the competition, again, and again and again. There is nothing the coaches can say, and now at this point, do. Like Jack says, it is what it is.

    • Gabby

      Exactly.. .”it is what it is” People need to deal with it and STFU…..or don’t watch.

  • Sas

    Wasn’t a good showing last night and you guys are probably right.

    We need to get it together.

    • CORTEZ THE KILLER

      Not with this staff

      • Sas

        I fear that also.

  • Sas

    Bamoatwright needs to stop looking to shoot from outside so much!

  • Sas

    SC should have let go of Aaron so we could have landed Bagley.

    Yep I said it.

    • Pudly76

      Would it have worked? Did we know at the time about the fbi or is there another reason you said it?

      • Sas

        Good question.
        I think the FBI hit everyone off guard.
        Good job by the feds

  • Old Trojans never die

    I just read that Mora was fired today is that a prank post?

    • Sas

      Heee gone!

    • Gabby

      No-mora!

  • Sas

    About time!!!!!!

  • Sas

    That’s SC basketball!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Pudly76

      Michael Ezekiel, 4* 6’6” we/te will be announcing his commitment tomorrow at 2:00.

      • Sas

        I think we should pass if…….it means taking away from OL/DL.

      • Sas

        Looks like he’s a Duck.

      • Sas

        Also looks like SC has moved on from Bo Calvert.

        • Pudly76

          Broke his leg about three weeks ago. Figured we’d cut one loose have too many and if Solo comes it’s even more. Heard they’d like to get in with the Kaho kid too.. BYU commit that Bama is after too.

          • Sas

            Yep. Tough break. No pun intended. Sewell looks like a happy camper.

  • Brutus Beefcake

    the only buzz was the debate over who’s the best QB in LA is like, OVER, Dude.

    Herbstreet said it best: “it’s not even close…..Piglet needs another year in school” so CHosen Rosen is locked in as #1 QB while Piglet is told to go back to drawing board.

    Bruins clearly outplayed trOXans, but lost. that is why Mora is gone.

    i say what the hell, bring on Chip!!! he owned SC with a bunch of three stars…..can’t wait to see what he does with UCLA level talent.

    #DullBuz

    • Sas

      Nah!
      Bruin excuses as usual.
      Not you Chuck!
      This is not like you at all.
      If you retract this right now then we’ll forget all about it…..

      #RETRACT IT

    • Ray

      SCOREBOARD BABY

      • Sas

        Yessssssirrrrrrrrrr!!!!!

    • Linkster

      Never get Chip Chuck. He is a one trick pony anyway. Everyone figured out Chip and he was a bust at SF and Philly.

      • Arturo

        The Pros may have figured him out. At 47-6, not so much in college.

        • Linkster

          Not so sure. They have to have the personnel to run Chips offense. That could take time to develop.

    • Jethro G Sabbath

      Chip plays fast and loose with the rules. I seem to recall you lecturing here about how UCLA was above that.
      Desperate times call for desperate measures, huh?

    • trojan_1972

      bRuin football has been irrelevant since Donahue left in 1995, and his record was starting to slip before he skipped town.

      You can expect more of what you have had for the last 20 plus years. A .500 program. If you can keep dipping into Wasserman’s wallet and keep firing coaches, you might get a 9-3 season every 5 -10 years, but that will be fool’s gold. You no longer are even in the conversation. You are behind Wisconsin, Iowa, Virginia Tech, the list goes on. Your fan base is down to 20,000 season ticket holders. I doubt many of them even care after nearly a quarter century of mediocrity.

      Now go back to writing Trump a thank you note for freeing the 3 “Knuckleheads” (per New York Times headline).

    • Sandy Underpants

      So with the best QB in college football for 3 years, UCLA went 17-19, Lost the Foster Farms bowl, and never beat USC. Those are the highlights of his college career. Sorry to make you feel like a bigger loser than you already did, but that’s my job– pointing out facts.

  • ItsAllAboutTheBall

    Alabama fans weren’t all that excited after beating Mercer either. Beating ucla is like getting busted for Shoplifting in China….Ain’t No Big Deal”

  • 04Trojan

    Flow has to be drooling while watching this SC Basketball game right now. If he’s watching, that is.

    • Sas

      Refs are calling t’s on us every chance but we have to step it up

      • 04Trojan

        Missed the first half. We’ll need a miracle here now with 47 seconds left.

        • Sas

          OT

    These refs are bailing out Vanderbuilt like they were related

  • Sas

    We get in the double bonus with 1:05 to play????
    BS

  • David Keeling

    When both teams play sloppy undisciplined football, people who pay to see the game will not applaud at the end of the game. Both Mora & Helton have shown they are not “detail” coaches. USC played down to the level of an opponent whose half the team were 2nd & 3rd stringers due to injuries. They should have been put away at the very least at the end of the first half. But then again, you have Clay Helton smilling after the game saying how great UCLA played and how well USC responded to the challenge. You just want to puke…..

    • JBKayak

      I like the description, ‘not detailed’ coach. I’ve been calling them disorganized. ‘Detailed oriented’ is a character trait that you either have or don’t and this staff doesn’t have it. Helton better hire someone to compliment his staff that is OCC level ‘detailed’ or next season will be his last.
