USC Uniform Check

Who knows what was going on in the final regular-season game from a uniform perspective. Some players wore white socks; some wore cardinal tights and some wore that thing that looks like a cardinal sock/tight/sleeve. As long as the players are happy.

    Pulitzer time???

    • CORTEZ THE KILLER

      It’s about time !

  • Yale O. Leftwich

    uniform…not so much

  • Independent_George

    Sorry Scottie, but I can’t get too wound up about socks.

    • CORTEZ THE KILLER

      It’s just a reflection on the lack of discipline from Gomer. Socks, penalties, me first attitude, it all comes from Gomer being a pushover and not being tough on them

      • Sas

        Rose Bowl win last season.

        Having a down year but……..
        In the Pac 12 Championship game with a Chance at the Fiesta Bowl

        What else you got?????????????????

        Think hard.

        • party_opponent

          Imagine where we’d be if we played disciplined football on a consistent basis…

          • Sas

            True.
            So true.

            But think…….

            We get what we buy….
            Meaning we bought cheap with Helton.

          • party_opponent

            Couldn’t agree more. I hope we’re setting aside our savings for when Helton is fired and we can get a nationally recognized name with a proven track record of success at the major college football level.

          • Sas

            I like Helton. The man. But I wouldn’t hate it if we lost both remaining games and we went shopping.

          • SucKiffin

            how pissed will we be when we miss out on Chip Kelly again … very pissed when Gomer goes 4-8 A.D. ( after Darnold)

          • Sas

            I think he’ll have some success if he gets a real DC and OL coach.
            He should let Ken Norton run his Defense, pay him whatever we can. At least send a subliminal (BKU can call him) message to him and see if if he’s interested.

          • gotroy22

            Truth!

          • Sas

            We went to our own garage sale.

        • gotroy22

          Disappointment.

      • party_opponent

        I might have a heart attack if Chuma or Jack Jack get another personal found penalty this year.

        • Sas

          At least you’ll be having it in the Pac12 CG.

          • Trojans 6942

            Boom

          • Pudly76

            You tell me Sam. Who takes a job when you fire the guy that went 24-2? And he’s still got that in front of him. You remember when they hired PC, they couldn’t find any body to take the job, PC was a last resort. People were screaming then that he was a hack retread.
            I’m not trying to defend any coach or coaches but there are a lot of people fooling themselves here.

            Again, who you got?

          • Sas

            I’m tongue tied. You really have a good point. But……in my own personal opinion…..i say keep Helton but tell him he has to make some moves within his coaching staff.

            Is John Harbaugh available?

    • SCgrad12

      It all goes back to a lack of attention and detail.

  • Sylvester

    The uniforms were pristine after the UCLA game. At least we’ll save on cleaning this week. Even the marching band had dirtier uniforms on after that game. And boy, didn’t the end zones look nice after the game ended ? It was like no one even walked in them during the game.

  • Pac12 fan

    This concept as trivial as it may seems reflects the lack of discipline on this team.

    • CORTEZ THE KILLER

      Bingo !

    • Sas

      How so?
      Kiffin went cardinal and gold socks and was 6-6.

      We are 10-2

      • gotroy22

        And lost by 35 to our rival.

        • Sas

          Don’t remind me.

          • gotroy22

            That why it’s a bittersweet 10-2 and Pac 12 South championship.

          • Pudly76

            What happened the last time they beat us like that?

        • SucKiffin

          and it could have been 55

    • Jethro G Sabbath

      How does our sock situation compare with that of the other eleven schools in the conference?

      • Pac12 fan

        Not as good

        • Jethro G Sabbath

          We need a more comprehensive answer than that from a self proclaimed fan of the conference. Break it down school by school.
          Is ASU wearing maroon or gold socks?
          Anybody at Colorado wearing white socks?

          • Pac12 fan

            You want too much detail Jethro. I am too busy getting read for Thanksgiving

    • JBKayak

      When I was a young nuck I would’ve said let the players have style, now, with experience, it’s a telltale sign of lack of disipline and a coach that overlooks things.

  • SCgrad12

    I said the exact same thing during warmups. There is a reason why it’s called a uniform. Everyone is supposed to wear the exact same gear. This is what happens when you have a coach who is everyone’s buddy. You don’t see this crap happening at Bama.

    • Trojans 6942

      Well I guess base on your summation 12 teams had better discipline and dressed more uniformly. But 10 of the the 12 couldn’t beat us even though they had all that discipline and uniformity.

      • Paul Muad’dib

        I like the greek pattern on the collar. I was hoping they would put that for the stripe on the pants as well. Maybe the side of the jersey too.

  • Sas

    Just so everybody knows.
    Kobe Bryant was at the game and decked out in USC gear.

    • Paul Muad’dib

      I was hoping for Kobe to go down and give SC a half time speech about passion for competition. Looks like it didn’t happen…

      • Sas

        That would have been Awesome!

  • trojanhogg

    Wait, Joc Pederson ran the team out of the tunnel on Saturday?

    • Sas

      Yes

      • CORTEZ THE KILLER

        Looks like a goof

    • gotroy22

      Should have been Chris Devenski from nearby Cerritos, California

  • Pasadena Trojan

    Scooter, you finally got one right. Helton allowed this, the undiscipline look which goes into the game itself. When Mckay and Robinson coached, the players had all black cleats and white socks. Everyone wore the same type of shoe and the same type of sock. Helton needs to pay attention to every detail. Else, it will bite him in the rear end.

  • J.A.M.

    …had anyone seen the videos of the former UCLA players that played for Coach Wooden and how he taught them the correct way to tie their shoes…hmmmm…the delightful Mr Wolf is right again…this team under preformed PERIOD…and as Che Guevara once said- the devil is in the details…or something…just sayn 🙂

  • Arturo

    Perhaps they should’ve worn oversized, dirty sweatshirts.

  • USC jojo

    Helton said it was casual sock Saturday. So the players wore what they wanted.

    • Lunderful

      Kinda like casual game Saturday.

      • USC jojo

        Yup, every game was casual.

  • Trojans 6942

    So some players wearing gloves but others don’t means no discipline. Really, wow, now we are going to uniforms to bang Helton. What’s next? How bout he doesn’t check to make sure everyone has brushed their teeth. No wait, no synchronism when coming on to the field. Some players drink water during timeouts but others don’t, or how bout…………

    • JBKayak

      As Pac12 fan posts, trivial concept but it shows a character trait, ‘not paying attention to details’ and that bleeds into everything in an organization. As the head coach is, as the players are.

      • Trojans 6942

        That’s the 60’s and 70’s. We’re dealing with millennials. I’m not saying your not right but be practical. We can’t even get some to stand for the National Anthem for sh** sake.

  • Lunderful

    Who’s the swish leading the team out of the tunnel?

  • Jeff Morse

    Wolfie now whining about uniform uniformity ( tongue twister there.) . How about a cup check Scott ? Never ends with you, Debbie Downer.

  • ItsAllAboutTheBall

    I was waiting to see what pathetic school would try to copy Miami’s Turnover Chain first. My Oregon guess turned out to be right.

  • Arthur Jury

    The blogger uses uniforms to knock Coach Helton (as usual). Meanwhile uni-watch dot com, the premier opinion on all athletic uniform wear, and the ESPN uniform related writer thinks the USC ucla game was the most beautiful uniform game of the year…

    “Ah…USC vs. UCLA — always the best looking game of the year. And yesterday didn’t disappoint. In fact, I happen to think this game looked better than the past …” “1) UCLA at Southern Cal — The best looking game of the season to date. No other explanation needed.”

    So negative blogger why are you nit picking when the country’s best uniform expert is not ??? Negative nelly much ???

  • Paul Muad’dib

    THAT’S IT! It was the socks! I knew there was something that caused USC to play like the didn’t want to be there! If only Scott Wolf was the equipment manager…

  • UCLA Dynasty

    You guys are 10-2, playing in the conference title game and complaining about socks. I just want a dang coach.

    I’d let the Bruins play in rainbow stripe tube socks if we could go 10-2.
