Some Opponent Top 10 Marks

Defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast can celebrate holding UCLA to 23 points but the Bruins had some top 10 performances in the USC All-Opponent record books.

UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen’s 421 yards passing was the sixth-most yards by an opponent in USC history. UCLA wide receiver Jordan Lasley’s 204 yards receiving was the sixth-most yards by a receiver by an opponent. UCLA wide receiver Theo Howard’s 11 receptions were the seventh-most by a receiver.

    What does the record book say about the score?

    • Gabby

      That’s a sour subject with the wolfman

      • Pudly76

        As are any real facts or statistics.

    • gotroy22

      You know about the record book with your 268 straight losses Gollllly Nooiiiid.

  • Burak Uslu

    Sixth most yards by a receiver and seventh most receptions on record?

    That is what I call a stretch to find some negatives.

    It must have been an amazing win.

    USC now leads the series: USC leads 47–31–7.

    • Jack B

      49-31-7 if you count 29-24 and the always memorable 66-19. I count ’em.

      Next year, USC will be going for fitty!

      • trojan_1972

        Absolutely count those! The game was played, and the Trojans won.

        • Pudly76

          More importantly the ruins lost.

          • trojan_1972

            2005 – bRuins scored nearly at end of game to make it a nailbiter, 66-19.

      • Pudly76

        Hey Jack, saw a tweet from jackthejiant, the five star tackle from Ohio tonight, and he was rockin the SC sweat shirt!! His only tweet tonight.

        • Jack B

          Now you’re talkin’. We need guys like that to really fix our OL problems, not just a new OL coach. And if Callaway can start signing better OLs like that, maybe he can stay.

          • Pudly76

            This class will probably end up with Justin Dedich, #1 center already committed. Jackson Carman, top 2 tackle, and Peneii Sewell top lineman western region to play guard between them. They actually lined up that way at the Nike opening this past spring and got along quite well.
            Put them together with last years group and we’re stacked on the o-line, especially when Vera-Tucker and Nathan Smith come back. All we can do is keep looking forward, and the d-line may be just as special.
            The weird thing is we have the top linebacker in the country already committed and the #2 is at Mater Dei and should be on board too. Don’t listen to the static. There seems to be a plan and it’s coming together.

            Happy Thanksgiving!!

          • Gabby

            Good post….thanks for the info

          • Sas

            If Tuliaupupu signs this could end up being a LB class to remember…..

            The #1 LB in the Nation Palaie Gaoeteote

            #4 OLB in the Nation Raymond Scott

            #3 MLB in the Nation Soloman Tuliaupupu

            ***ALL 3 IN THE ARMY ALL AMERICAN GAME***
            All time!!!

          • Gabby

            The Polynesian Duo….could be epic!

          • Sas

            F*ck yeah it could!

          • Pudly76

            More than your award of actually. Commits Raymond Scott (Narbonne) and Kana’I Mauga (St Louis HS, Hi) are all poly players as linebackers. Kana’I was an unknown until found by Johnny Nansen, because he never went on the 7v7 circuit. He did our rising stars and one other camp in Utah and blew up.

          • Gabby

            From a talent and potential standpoint, right up there with the 2005 LB class…..good post!

          • Pudly76

            Very true Gabby, maybe better. This class has real possibilities.

          • Pudly76

            Put that with commit Letuligasenoa (DT from DeLaSalle) and Trevor Trout (the recent commit from Mo.) and this looks to be a defensive loaded class, despite the o-line and potentially the top wide receiver in the country.

          • Gabby

            Top three class?………We need some serious beef in the trenches

          • Pudly76

            I’m reticent to say top three. Not because of the talent, but because of the numbers. This will be a reduced class, maybe between 18-22? But the talent on both lines and linebackers will be great if we win out. There is the possibility we land the top ranked players at multiple positions, which we haven’t done since PC.

          • Pudly76

            If you want to see what this kid looks like and see some vids, put an @ in front of Jackthejiant on a twitter search and it will come up.

    • Evil Robot

      Like Wolf, I’m not a stats guy, but I believe Rosen is also tied for last in number of wins against SC, with zero. I’m not sure where his five turnovers in two games stands… so I’m going to say that it is either sixth or seventh.

  • Chris

    It must be devastating for Clancy to know this. I am sure that he is head in hands right now. He most likely would have rather held them out of top 10 marks and lost the game. Because by this time next year the only thing anyone will remember is a couple of UCLA receivers…… already forgot what I was writing, sorry.

    • Pudly76

      What’d you say?

  • Trojan5

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I am thankful for those of you who bring your insight & knowledge to this site. I am thankful for the real journalists who cover USC & college football in a professional manner.

    • Gabby

      FIGHT ON!

  • CORTEZ THE KILLER

    Some NFL team is going to knock down Clany’s door to get him !

    • Pudly76

      The guys with butterfly nets coming for you.

    • SucKiffin

      and Gomer’s …imagine him in the NFL hahahaha

      • Pudly76

        Pretend it’s Halloween and you’re going out as someone nice. Just for a day.

      • Gabby

        Go eat some more turkey

    • Gabby

      Get the resume ready, I see an opening for you

  • Globehead

    I wish we’d lost but didn’t allow those top 10 stats.

  • Pudly76

    Jackthejiant, Carmen Jackson, rockin the Trojan gear in his Thanksgiving tweet!!

  • Pudly76

    I have a top ten question for you Scottie, are the ruins in our top ten defeated list? Hmm, just wondering!!

    • Gabby

      OUCH!….that’s a good one

  • LamontRaymond

    6th, 6th and 7th? Not newsworthy.

    • Jack B

      667…667…667. Maybe this is a new bruin numerical code which will start showing up as a facial tattoo on the graduating ucla footballers. Just a hunch, er…like an Omen.

  • Sandy Underpants

    We’re still talking about the UCLA game? SC won, it wasn’t close, UCLA never had a lead and was never within taking a lead. The Trojans are huge fans of the Cranberries and they like to let it linger, but the result was never in question.

    • Gabby

      game, set, match….put a fork in it!

  • UCLA Dynasty

    All that and a bag of beans don’t mean much when you lose the game.

    • Pudly76

      No moral victories.

      • Gabby

        The ruin fanbase counts moral victories it helps their self-esteem

        • Pudly76

          The use of the term moral and ruin in the same sentence should be outlawed,!and considered as obscene.

      • gotroy22

        That’s why the ruins love loser Hillary.

        • Pudly76

          Now you know 22, she didn’t lose, everyone else lost it for her.

    • Jack B

      Problem is, some your Troll brotherhood yak about USC being lucky, even though USC never trailed, controlled the game, tricked you with a laughable TD punt return and took a knee at the beginning of our last series to show mercy.

      You bruins tried as hard as you could but the truth is you just didn’t have the stones to pull it off. The only question now is which 5-6 team will win the shot at the Turtle Head Bowl, CAL or ucla.

      Oh, one other question too. Who’s gonna be the next coach to try to make Wimpwood into something other than a basketball school? For awhile all you little gutties were chirpin’ about nailing Cheater Kelly. No biggee. But was that all just hogwash generated by a ucla fanboy site?

      • EncinitasBruin

        You’d kill to have Kelly over Helton. Whether it happens or not for UCLA, that’s the truth.

        • Pudly76

          Bull puckie. He’s a used up retread. Read all my posts or Jack’s and others here have consistently said the same thing. His boy Helfrich just got fired at Oregon because of the outdated offense.
          You need to think we want him, that would make it some type of moral victory for the ruins. Think again. And as far as Florida wanting him, big deal, they hired one of those hotshot up-and-comers that everyone thinks is so cool. I’ll take 10-2 and a chance at 12-2 thank you.

        • Jack B

          Not me personally. CK’s a boorish guy who won’t pose the same problems for defenses any longer. He’ll make a much bigger splash wherever he goes just for signing up than for being successful IMO.

          Helton’s still got a lot to prove but I wouldn’t replace him with CK, who I just don’t see as a dominant college coach next time around.

          • EncinitasBruin

            I have mixed feelings for the same reasons. IF Aikman and Wasserman can land him to the Bruins, however, it will be the first time in nearly 45 years that UCLA didn’t settle for the plan b or c coach. CK would not even sniff as UCLA if it weren’t for the work Mora did to make the Wasserman Football Center a reality. Interesting times. If it falls through, I’d love to see Whittingham with Fisch as OC. Fisch is brilliant offensive mind.

          • Jack B

            Funny that Mora has gone down so badly, yet it appears that without his push, you don’t even have the Wasserman facility. I’ll give Mora this – he was very passionate about ucla football success. More so than his players.

            I’m not sure why Mora failed in the end at ucla. He looked like he was really gonna change everything for you for awhile. Then it all just went “poof” when your best QB in a generation signed on. Football’s a bizarre, very complicated game in some ways.

          • EncinitasBruin

            Yeah, it was kinda sad to see it play out for Mora. I’m a fan of the man for his passion and loyalty, and I know he did not want his divorce. He literally laid the groundwork for the future of the program but could not match that progress on the field. He literally worked himself out of a job, wherein top-tier facilities are now in place for a next-level coach.

  • Jaime

    Scooping Scooter is really grasping at straws now. Anything to make the Trojans look bad. Daily News editor please fire this negative nelly. Please

    • Gabby

      The National Enquirer is his true calling

  • Jaime

    And Happy Thanksgiving to everyone that wants to celebrate a 10 and 2 record and playing in the CCG of the Pac 12

  • steveg

    Is this Wolf’s first entry for Inside ucla? Do we all need to find a new blog?

  • Thinker

    Hmmm?….

    Clay Helton said winning the Pac-12 South and making the Pac-12 title game is a sign of the program improving on a year ago.

    Ummm…NO!

  • Yale O. Leftwich

    Those are impressive numbers unfortunately, and I expect Wash St will have similar if they are the opponent next week. Not sure why people are not bothered by it ,Wash St. also has a better running game and defense than ucla. if it is Stanford , they are more balanced all around , and don’t expect the same Stanford ,they were still figuring out who their q/b was , they have done that. Either opponent will be a very physical opponent, like the following Bowl game, expect ND TYPE physical opponents, not Pac 12 south…

  • Ignore_the_trolls

    It was also the 2nd lowest point total the bRuins scored all year.

  • JBKayak

    Gotta give it up, Rosen threw a few times during the first quarter
