    Say it ain’t so Scott! Say it ain’t so!

    • RegalTrojan

      The positive aspect of this is all the garbage and BS associated with agenda-driven comments and replies will be gone as well. I will miss chatting with real SC alums and fans, though. I hope to see you somewhere down the road, GT. And don’t worry, my friend. A mere death of a blog doesn’t mean the demise of the Trojan Spirit. No, not even close! FIGHT ON!!!

      • gotroy22

        Good spirit Regal, I will miss you!

        • RegalTrojan

          This won’t be the end of it, GT. There will be other blogs we could hang out in. I’m just hoping all the garbage wouldn’t follow us, though. LOL!

          • Michael Guarino

            Hey! I’m hoping you’re not talking about me, RT!
            Seriously, I’ll miss ya, buddy. Take care!

          • RegalTrojan

            LMAO…MG, my Trojan bro! No, I’m not going anywhere as long as you’re around! I’m sure there will be a new Trojan playground for us in the near future, if not right away. Trust me, MG. I’ll find you somehow, some way.

    • Pudly76

      Good night my good friend!! Peace to you and yours…

      • gotroy22

        You always had good posts and great insights and great throw back to the old days references! I will miss your wisdom and optimism.

        • Pudly76

          It was always refreshing to speak with an intelligent antagonist, and you were one of the best…it’s not about always agreeing, rather in the discourse through which we found many commonalities…will look for you down the line.

  • SDSillyCyclist

    Wow, this is a surprise. I don’t think that commenting on each article will be the same as this blog. Despite the negative attitude towards certain people and issues, I’ll miss having all the comments in one place. This after over 400 comments on the previous post!

    • Michael Guarino

      Like him or hate him, what Scott pulled off here will be remembered for a long time. He baited people into joining the fray —and by so doing, brought in hundreds of interesting voices and viewpoints. I think we’ll all miss that for a long time.
      #Thanks,Scott!

      • Peaceful Warrior

        Save Wolf now! This was a one stop shop to find out everything that wrong with USC. Granted most of it was slanted worse the 200 year old floor it was still fun to read. Plus it was a great place to see how desperate UCLA fans are.

        • Michael Guarino

          Let’s start a petition! Sign on to keep Scott!

      #Scott’sGoneButThucStays???!
      #WTF?!

      • Trojan5

        If he is gone, suspect that big reason would be SW pulls bigger salary than Thuc. Cost cutting is rampant in many industries, and particularly in the newspaper business.

        • Michael Guarino

          Bet you’re right on this, Trojan5. [But they’re not getting ANY bang for their buck with Thuc].

          • gotroy22

            Didn’t they already have that before, where you could comment on stories?

          • Pudly76

            While we’re on the subject (of seriously messed up women folk), did you see the YouTube of Rose McGowan flipping out (over and over and over again) at her little ‘book chat’ get together? That is a woman who is very, very close to taking her own life….and, therefore, probably not the greatest role model for women who are in need of one.

          • gotroy22

            I could see where she might get a teeny bit upset when a trans heckler yells that she hasn’t done anything for trans women who are victims of sexual assault.

          • Michael Guarino

            May I answer your question by stating the obvious, gt? Swann is less of an innovator than Helton. He’s proven himself to be just exactly —-and I mean, exactly—-what Max wanted: a status quo manager.
            #ItIsn’tTheWorstThingInTheWorld….
            #…ButIt’sNotTheBestEither……

          • gotroy22

            I just don’t get it. Before the Daily News collapsed we were innundated with stories of SC striking it rich with recruits. This seems like such a dumb move. If Helton thrives next year then you give him the deal, not now when we have no idea how he will do breaking in a new QB. Swann gave away his ability to motivate Helton, now next year we are stuck with Helton even if the team implodes.

          • Michael Guarino

            Ex-fricking-actly!

            We’ve all heard the rumors about tension between Clancy and Udeze —-but who knows if they’re true, gt. I just hope Helton can hold on to him. We will suffer —-big time—if he leaves. There is no way Helton can attract somebody with this talent to take over the d-line—-and without a great d-line, USC gets ripped up by Stanford, Texas and Notre Dame next year.

            Andyaintwinning + Helton = Losertum!!!

          • gotroy22

            Hey Bonehead we have been talking about it for hours. You must have been distracted trying to come up for explanations for the newly revealed text messages between lthe adulterous corrupt FBI paramours Peter Strzok and Lisa Page include an exchange about preparing talking points for then-FBI Director James Comey to give to President Obama, who wanted “to know everything we’re doing.”

            Just think you wasted years of your meaningless life supporting that crook!

          • Michael Guarino

            Hey,gt! One great thing about the defunct Inside USC —as opposed to the defunct Inside UCLA—-is that we don’t have to look at a sweetie pie animated brown bear whose only moving part is his cute, wittle waving paw…..

          • gotroy22

            And why the big announcement last week when the blog is still open today? This is as equally baffling as the Helton contract extension.

          • Michael Guarino

            I think they’re doing an experiment —can gt22, ANDYISWINNING and Michael G. provide enough hits to retain advertisers while freeing up Scott’s salary.

            Right!!!!

          • gotroy22

            Only 50 to go!

          • Fred Sampson

            That contract probably has a buyout clause, that favors the university, because Clay Helton had no leverage. And I’m sure it was announced today, to keep the recruits from flipping before letter of intent day tomorrow

          • gotroy22

            Who were these recruits who were threatening to bail? Sewell?

          • Michael Guarino

            Yeah, maybe Sewell ….but I’m sure more than one parent asked if Helton’s gonna be around for a while before letting their kid sign on the dotted line…..

          • Michael Guarino

            Great to see you, Fred!
            [By the way, I completely agree—-the timing proves it]!

          • JustOwns

            Say what, bozo u is worried about there lock recruits flipping, so they give Helton a 3 yr extension…….hilarious!

            I thought bozo u recruited itself!!!!

            What will that loser say about Obama having US spies pay the Russians $100,000 for dirt on Trump?

          • ANDYISWINNNNNING!!!!

            I want to know how much is the buyout clause!

          • Michael Guarino

            The million dollar question! This “multi year deal” may be illusory.

          • ANDYISWINNNNNING!!!!

            I see you caught that phrase….hmmmmm

          • Michael Guarino

            I think that —however the press release reads —-this year and next are the make it or break it years for Clay. So, in effect, the new deal guarantees him one year beyond this year. And that’s nothing to sneeze at. It gives him breathing room, it helps him with recruits and it’ll help us keep our roving coaches (or attract new ones).

          • ANDYISWINNNNNING!!!!

            I agree! It’s an extended hot seat!

          • Michael Guarino

            Correct, my bud.

          • gotroy22

            The gist I was getting from most fans before the site was ended was that next year was make or break…now that Helton gets this extension the extreme rah rahs have won!

          • Michael Guarino

            I wonder if the double-secret contractual terms say anything about “all conferred benefits disappear upon the midnight following any 30 point loss to UCLA or Notre Dame”???

          • gotroy22

            Is this just a recruiting stunt?

          • Michael Guarino

            Now if they fire Helton the media will have a field day.

          • Michael Guarino

            Now, THAT would be the kinda situation where having our Scott around would come in real handy….

          • gotroy22

            Yes it will be smoothed over on rah rah sites like the way CNN tried today to smooth over
            Clinton crony Cody Shearer making up his own Trump dossier for the FBI.

          • Michael Guarino

            Wouldn’t it be lovely for Scott to look into the backdrop of the warrant on Carter Page —-get the FISA court transcripts, see the actual applications submitted for the original warrant and each of it’s extensions, see Andrew McCabe’s testimony to congress, etc, etc…..

          Hey JB, despite the fact that you and I didn’t have common friends in this blog, I did enjoy and appreciate your unshakable Trojan spirit and dedication. And yes, I have no doubt that you’ll live on as the most prolific participant in any Trojan football blogs no matter which one we’ll find ourselves in again. I will always look for your most distinctive avatar in the future. Stay healthy, my good Trojan brother. FIGHT ON!!!

          • Jack B

            Did you know my wife picked my avatar? Great sense of humor, that gal. Got a lot of people all riled up. Lot of laughs, kind of like the subject matter of this blog sometimes.

            SW was a terrific, highly unusual lightning rod. He’ll be missed, at least part of the time.

          • RegalTrojan

            Your wife did well to make your ID one of the more distinctive ones around, JB. And yes, it’s been quite a wild ride for me, too, sharing thoughts and ideas with you and others through the years on Trojan football. Honestly, things have become sort of strenuous recently because of the emergence of some unusual “fans” who were trying to defend Helton and him only in this blog. Hopefully, the new Trojan football blog in the future will be devoid of them. But it just might be my wish.

          • gotroy22

            Too bad they shut down the blog right before Hitlery and Obama were exposed as traitors to America today. I would have loved to read the excuses of the libt*rds like gray stool, Morons Owns, Kissy86er, Portapotty, Jethro and arturo.

          • RegalTrojan

            Totally agreed, GT. But unfortunately, shutting down this blog won’t get rid of all the undesirables completely. And that’s why I’m kind of reluctant to move my effort to Reign Of Troy. Sometimes it’s better to say adios altogether and move on.

          • gotroy22

            Yes Porta Potty has no trouble with going places he doesn’t belong.

          • RegalTrojan

            Hey GT, don’t look now, but the joker might be The Hat Boy in disguise. Or Brent Oil. Or Helen The Trojan Horse.

          • Porfirio666

            Pues, adios entonces.

          • JustOwns

            JellyHead, that Ratipublican/Nunes/Moron joke memo has all the legal standing of the BirdChite that covers the cardboard lean-to hovel you call home.

          • gotroy22

            Owns, you still pushing that Fake News Clinton News Network/PMSNBC Talking Point now that national security wasn’t actually threatened by publication of the memo like Schiff predicted? How sad to be you.

            The Congress isn’t a court of law, you stupid ruin lib. They perform oversight on the Executive Branch and make referrals to the Justice Department and the IG for prosecutions, of which there will be many for the Obama/Hitlery operatives in the FBI and DOJ knowingly presenting false info to a court to get a FISA warrant. But the 1st, 2nd and 4th Amendments aren’t your long suit.

            BTW good win for the ruins. Bonespur Bill Walton says they have the talent to make the Final Four but lack consistency. With the Dookies, KY and KU struggling this could be the year for the ruins and Trojans to make a big run in March for the Final Four.

          • JustOwns

            But Jellyhead, Nunes stated for the record, he never bothered to read the FBI warrants submitted for FISA approval

            So basically JH, Nunes claims are based on Ratpublican fiction. So as I said JH, the Nunes/Moron Memo is worthless.

            Hey JH, How about that DJ, 1100 point nose dive. How come I don’t hear the Moron claiming responsibility.

          • gotroy22

            Hey Moron Owns, how about that Democrat-Mediacrat-FBI-DOJ-State Department Russian Collusion Coup attempt? That wouldn’t have anything to do with investors losing faith in the country. Give your heroine Hitlery credit for that one.

          • JustOwns

            On vacation, laughing his head off at the Moron’s Napoleon act.

            I’m still waiting for the Deuce Gowdy report on the 2 year Hillary email investigation. That useless Gowdy investigation can be described by a 2 letter abbreviation – BS.

            All the people you describe as reading the FISA approval documents didn’t, I repeat JellyHead, didn’t write the Ratpublican, Nunes, Moron Memo.

            Lastly JH, Gowdy has stated for the record, the Ratpublican memo has nothing to do with the Mueller investigation.

          • gotroy22

            Wow – This is Huge – A text message reportedly from corrupt FBI lovers and former Mueller investigators implicates former President Barack Obama as being involved in the Obamagate scandal!

            Newly revealed text messages between lusty adulterous FBI paramours Peter Strzok and Lisa Page include an exchange about preparing talking points for then-FBI Director James Comey to give to President Obama, who wanted “to know everything we’re doing.”

            Now we know why Obama refused to prosecute the felonious Hitlery! He’s as big a crook as the Clinton Crime Family.

            But then, we always knew nothing good comes from corrupt DemoRat One Party

            Our BBall team is waking up now but I won’t be convinced until I see Saturday’s game. F***! I just realized my son’s baseball tournament is Saturday! It’s a one day tournament so I hope we’re still playing but on a break at 3:15 or we lose two straight and call it a day LOL. But we have to win this game. There’s a Pizza place a block away with good food, cold beer, and sports playing on the big screens so I hope we smash on the Bruins and some Bruin fans I know end up being there like usual so they can kiss my converse!

          • Chris

            Same boat. Aau playoffs, right at game time.

          • ANDYISWINNNNNING!!!!

            I agree 100%! They couldn’t wait until after the game! Looks like they want to get rid of us! Dumped! We need to start our own blog! Read GT’s message further below!

          • Michael Guarino

            Good luck to your son and his team, Sam! Win that game and get back in the thick of things!

            So much for Plan B!

          • ANDYISWINNNNNING!!!!

            See SAS’s reply to me. Agree 100%! They couldn’t wait! Looks like they want to get rid of us! My perception!

          • Michael Guarino

            ANDYISWINNING!!!! —Unless they take this site down completely, THIS IS OUR USC/UCLA BASKETBALL SITE. Just our little way of giving them the finger.

          • ANDYISWINNNNNING!!!!

            I’m sure it’s in the works! This site will disappear, but for now—we will continue to use it! Hopefully, SAS will get the new blog up!

          • Michael Guarino

            Love it if Sam pulls if off!
            And I hope this page is here on Saturday! It could represent a real fun way of going out on top!

          • ANDYISWINNNNNING!!!!

            Let’s hope Thuc’s page is also up! Bombard both! I don’t have a reply from Sam as of now.

          • Michael Guarino

            Oh, my brother, that is the plan! As they say in England, “give their mothers something to cry about.”

          • Sas

            Damn is he Steve Alford?

            Nah!

            Helton has at least FINISHED in the top 5……”#3 in the Nation” (says Heltons attorney)

            Andy, this make any kind sense to to you?

            Are Anthony Munoz and Tony Boselli both going to coach the OL for free?
            Or
            Have Ronnie Lott and Troy Polamalu offered take over as CO-Defensive Coordinator’s AND GO GET THE PLAYERS THAT HE WANTS ON HIS SQUAD DURING THE RECRUITING TIMES THAT NORMAL PROGRAMS ASSIGN A “TOP DC”???

          • ANDYISWINNNNNING!!!!

            We (Michael G, GT22) believe it’s a recruiting stunt. Shows stability since the big day is tomorrow! We all need to know of the buyout clause!

      • Trojan5

        Farewell M G. Looked forward to seeing your posts. Some days you, Jack, and Fred were the only posts I would see. I got tired of some of the yahoos and just started blocking people. Anyone with Gomer or Kiffin in there name was gone. I am not going to lie–I will miss the sunny optimism that Fred brought everyday. My wish for the 2018 season is that USC will have at least one beast of an O Lineman so Fred can get some degree of enjoyment when he watches the Trojans.

        • Michael Guarino

          You’re making me, sad, my buddy. The bad thing about a blog like this one is you get to really care for some of the folks —and the whole thing can be taken away from you overnight. I’ll really miss you and the guys…a lot. And, yeah, I hope we get one complete stud o-lineman so Fred is happy, too!
          Take care, Trojan5!

      • trojan_1972

        MG, the primary barrister, enjoy Paradise, and enjoy the Trojans with 3 more hours of daylight on the telecasts! It was a true pleasure!

        • Michael Guarino

          I was really hoping to hear from you, trojan_1972! We had a bunch of fun exchanges and, man, am I gonna miss that! I hope our paths cross again, my friend!

          • trojan_1972

            Back at you buddy! Mahalo, and aloha for the next time!

      • Arturo

        You’re the best, MG.

        • Michael Guarino

          Wow, Arturo! I’m feeling like I’m saying goodbye to all my companions at the end of the Wizard of Oz (before the balloon takes me back to sterile Kansas). This is pretty sad all around. I came to really love the back and forth with you —-you have such a strong sense of justice. And, yeah, my friend—you’re right about the donkey.
          God bless!

          • Arturo

            God Bless You.

          • Michael Guarino

            May I pay you a compliment, Arturo? I’ve been involved in a lot of courtroom fights over my lifetime. A huge part of preparation is spending time with the witnesses—listening to them tell their stories, evaluating their strengths and weaknesses. Invariably, the ones with the designer suits and phony accents were the ones that came apart in the heat of battle. The witnesses I loved were the ones who valued truth and courage. I could tell who they were in ten seconds. You’re the kind of person I would want on my side in a knock down, drag out courtroom fight. You’re way more than a peer, Arturo —-you’re a noble person.
            Have a great life, my friend. And don’t let bad forces ever get you down —- no matter how tough it gets, you have what it takes to come out on top.

      • 04Trojan

        You too. Enjoy the next stop.

        Fight On.

      • RegalTrojan

        MG, I guess sometimes they get what they wish for. All these anti-Scott participants in this blog certainly have something to celebrate tonight because their most dreaded nemesis is gone. I actually like to call them out for the demise of this blog by attacking and deriding SW for being a straight talker on the state of SC football as he personally observed and saying it sucked when it did and who did. I, for one, am going to miss this blog run by SW because it was one of the last few politically incorrect forums where some truths were spoken, instead of what sounded good or what certain group of participants wanted to hear.

        • Michael Guarino

          Totally on the money, RT! No USC site is ever gonna be more of a fun ‘free for all’ than this one…. or as wildly visited. It was dumb and short sighted to take it down. And a lot of the people who treated Scott the most poorly will miss it the most.

          • RegalTrojan

            MG, you know what? It wouldn’t shock me a bit if the firing of SW was come about by the constant blackmailing and complaints filed by all these so called “Die Hard Helton Defenders” who were attacking any negative opinions against him. Ironically, I don’t see most of them in this thread today barking the same old tune as before. Leaving this blog does have me feeling sad, but I’m not going to miss these agenda-driven idiots like the Hat Boy, Brent Oil, the fake lawyer, and etc..

          • Michael Guarino

            Very interesting, RT! And, you’re right, none of those people are here tonight. Every other night. But not tonight. Sorta suspicious, huh?

          • RegalTrojan

            Guess they’re partying hard tonight high-fiving each other, MG.

          • Michael Guarino

            Oh, man. That is an image I wish you hadn’t conjured up, RT! We loyal Scottists have a duty to avenge him.

            Isn’t it magical, GT? Those tenacious Helton defenders are gone with the wind. And there’s got to be a reason, right?

          • RegalTrojan

            GT, can anybody or anything explain the abrupt disappearance of “steveg” from this blog as it became inactive? We’re talking about one of the most active ones on here even until a few days ago.

          • steveg

            Thanks for thinking of me my friend. I am also on wearesc as steveo. We had our differences but when it came down to it I did appreciate all the years we commented together. Anyone can contact me at honestfisherman09 at hotmail dot com.

          • RegalTrojan

            Hey, I do appreciate your positive way of looking back on our journey in this blog. Yes, you and I go back a few years jousting each other mainly on Helton as our football HC. But like you, I’ve learned quite a bit on how diverse one’s views on the same guy could be even as a true self-claimed and passionate SC football fan. You might have labelled me simply a downer, who looked at things as negatively as possible on everything about SC football under Helton, but the bottom-line is we all want our team to win and return to our former glory recently reached under PC as you rightly pointed out. With that said, I think it’s time for us to acknowledge the fact that we both share the common passion for our team and hope for the best in our future as I predict the 2018 season to be less than red-carpeted and brightly lit. Wish you and yours the best until we meet again, friend. FIGHT ON!!!

          • Michael Guarino

            I have a good idea, gt —-but I don’t want to go into a lot of detail since this site is available to minors.
            I wonder how long the complete yahoos who ended Scott’s glorious tenure will allow THIS page to go on? Surely, the sheer # of replies must be embarrassing to them. Scott’s last two articles are heading toward a thousand hits.

          • gotroy22

            It’s still up now but I doubt it alsts up to game time today.

          I was only here for about a year as a poster, maybe a year before just reading posts, nothing like some who’ve been here so long. He (regal) accused me often of being other people, many other people, men and women? Sorry to disappoint him, there was just me. Good luck Chris. Hope you find what you’re looking for.

          • Michael Guarino

            At one point I got accused of being Scott….and, later, Owns himself. But it was all fun. And, now that it’s over, I realize I love all you guys. No matter how crazy we all are.
            Take care, Pudly! See ya on Inside UCLA on Saturday.

          • Arturo

            I got accused of being Fred Sampson.

          • Michael Guarino

            I will always be proud to vouch for you being the one and only Arturo.
            Hope to see ya at Inside UCLA Saturday night, Arturo!

          • gotroy22

            You?

          • RegalTrojan

            It’s unfortunate if you had been mistaken for someone you were not. And it was never my intention to falsely accuse anyone of anything. But if you had paid any attention to this blog in recent months, a certain degree of witch-hunting was inevitable because there were so many handles that sang the same old tune over and over again taking sides with Helton no matter what the situations were. And trust me, it wasn’t the most pleasant experience for me to be confrontational with anyone claiming to be a Trojan fan. However, I respect honesty and integrity in individuals, not the crafty skills to twist and package the obvious truths for their own self-interests and benefits. Hope you understand my point of view. And I’m sure we’ll cross our paths again somewhere in the future with clearer idea on who we really are. I hope you take good care of yourself until then. FIGHT ON!!!

          • steveg

            Pudley, thanks for all you have contributed, for having my back, and being an all around really good guy.

        • GOMER HELTON

          SW was let go because he made more money than the ucla blogger, he worked many more years, probably got offered a buyout. It won’t be long before these blogs are gone, this newsgroup isn’t long for the business world. The sheer stupidity of canning him, a writer who actually got views and keep some dope who gets zero views should tells you everything you need to know about the people running this newsgroup

          • RegalTrojan

            Your points are well taken, but who knows? There might have been some external pressure on him to quit what he was doing. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised at all even if it took place considering how many passionate adversaries he had in this blog alone.

          • gotroy22

            This coprorate raider will destroy the Daily News. Saw the same thing with a corporate raider that destoyed a grocery store chain in the Southland.

      • GOMER HELTON

        See ya guys.

        I had many many ID’s here, mostly because the moderator would boot me for saying anything against SW, the board moderator and I had some interesting back and forth e-mails

        Gonna miss Gotroy, Tebow, Timmay, Fred and all the rest of the realists here.

        I still believe that Gomer is not head coach material and this season will prove that in spades, I’m just afraid that SC will do another lazy HC search and wind up with more of the same.

        For anyone that feels I hurt them in any way, I’m sorry, none of it was ever done with malice, I don’t dislike anyone here, we all have our opinions.

        This was the best blog, I’ll never post on any other site, all of them are too controlled by rah rah SC goofs.

        Good luck to the Wolfman, hope you finally write that book about the PC years and all the other years you covered SC, I would imagine that some of the stories would surprise many, maybe he’ll get his dream gig of covering the EPL or European soccer.

        Fight On to all the SC fans here

            Or when Kiffin was HC, Sark, I really hope he writes a book.

            I do know this, SW doesn’t think Gomer is head coaching material anymore than you or I do.

            Funny thing is, SW is still tweeting under the insidesocal id, weird

      Jack,
      This almost feels like graduation or something. But you are one of the cool cats around this blog and I’ve enjoyed the conversations over the years.
      I guess I’ll comment at ROT.
      WEARE!!!!SC!!!!!

      • Jack B

        Sas – I’m gonna miss you’re recruiting updates. You’re on it! So one last question. Who are we gonna sign in one week? Any surprises?

        • Sas

          I don’t think we’ll see any surprises. But here’s something worth mentioning, but Scott Schrader’s recruiting staff member picked Penei Sewell to USC. And SS was askedif he still believes Sewell will sign with SC and he said “I think that’s what will happen”

          I wouldn’t be surprised if Taylor-Stuart had a last minute change of heart and signed with Nick Saban.

          • Jack B

            That would be too bad. But if he’d go all the way to freakin’ Alabama when he could just drive up to L.A. to be a part of one of the greatest football powers of all-time with massive Calif degree influence, then I would say it turned out that Bradford was a huge liability, especially after losing Julius Irvin to UW today.

          • Sas

            I think Taylor-Stuart will be a Trojan. But Saban has really made it a point to show this kid he wants him. He actually goes on the road unlike Clancy. He has more rings than Mr. T and that might flatter the kid. But Griffin and Taylor-Stuart should be TROJANS giving us the two best CB duo this class.

          • Jack B

            Hey,

            Saban’s the best IMO and I think he always pulls out all the stops. Isn’t that’s why he’s the best? He’s a killer. But USC knows this, like everyone else, and there’s really no excuse for allowing ALA to come all the way across the U.S. to San Diego and take a backyard CB prospect we need desperately.

            I’d hate to see Helton start losing these battles, especially since he’s already in a shaky spot and we have such a need at CB. Recruiting’s a brutal business. Hope it doesn’t get more brutal next Wed!

            Keep the faith! Thanks for the info.

          • Sas

            I agree. I’m expecting him to head to USC to become the 2nd best player from Helix HS next to Reggie Bush but to become the next great CB at USC.

          • Jack B

            I’m sure things will get tense. Whoo hoo!

          • Sas

            I always request signing day off so i’ll be in front of the TV !

          • Jack B

            Pure addiction. Xmas Day for recruitniks.

            I’m hearing conflict between BKU and Clancy may put a wrench in some of our DL signee plans. Something to watch out for.

          • Sas

            An addiction is probably the right way to put it.
            Clancy needs to recognize and pump the breaks before he loses a big ingredient to our defense that he can’t afford to lose.

          • Jack B

            He needs to but I don’t think he will. I’m preparing to lose BKU and maybe a DL recruit or even two. I’m not saying that’s gonna happen, but we’ll know pretty soon here just how serious a problem Helton has on his hands. It obviously hasn’t been fixed yet, at least to the benefit of USC.

      • Jethro G Sabbath

        That is a good way of putting it. Your passion for USC was always evident. You follow recruiting more closely than anyone I’ve ever come across.

        • Sas

          Thanks buddy. I remember reading in the Los Angeles Times about Shaun Cody being the #1 Defensive Player in the Nation and Pete Carroll signed him to get things roling. After that i had to know more about recruiting and as we all know Pete was called a “legendary recruiter” and he made it a lot more easier on SC fans then because got who we wanted when we wanted. But when i checked rivals to see we stole Reggie Bush from Notre Dame (Reggie was a recruit that was on his own planet) and we landed Jeff Schweiger who was a big deal at the time I had to get a subscription LOL! But my older brother and my best friend were always keeping up with it too so I was in the know about SC recruiting.
          Jethro G. Sabbath you always stayed close to the site while also keeping a low profile at times, I liked your Bruin trash talk for sure!
          Also….Did you go to Ozzfest this year? I wish I had gone, Deftones were on the bill. Damn it!

    • trojan_1972

      Jack, will miss much from your posts, including the lambasting of the Bruin trolls! See you around the bend!

      • Jack B

        Hah hah! The whole Troll thing was crazy.

        I hope we all find each other somewhere because there was a lot to be learned here, especially from the clash of differing viewpoints, sometimes seriously, other times all in fun.

        Po’ po’ Jackie B, I’m still waiting for him to name the 1st former bozo QB who started a Super Bowl game.

    • Pac12 fan

      Will miss our banter Jack B

      • Jack B

        Never any hard feelings Joe. 😉

        • Pac12 fan

          Whats the sccop on Wolf? This seems kind of an abrupt end.

        • fast fred

          no hard feelings Jack—I had fun, most of the time. BTW, I’m really not a fan of the bruins, just like to stir it up. I love college football and I will really miss this blog.

          • Jack B

            Good luck to your favorite team, whatever it is, FF. Sincerely.

            All in good anonymous fun.

            I do have a couple of good sources by the way. Can’t live without those.

            Here comes a watered down LOI Day. All CFB fans love the first Wed in Feb.

            Fight On!

        You too Arturo. Fight On!

    • 04Trojan

      Enjoy the next stop.

      Fight On.

      • Jack B

        Same to you 04. Hope we find a good alternative.

        This was a one-of-a-kind.

    • Pudly76

      Good luck Jack..

      • Jack B

        Same to you Pudly. I didn’t see this coming like this.

        • Pudly76

          Unfortunately, I’ve been worried since the announcement of restructuring earlier this month, then the nature of Scott’s post changed to real content on recruiting and staff and it seemed as though there was a different blogger..
          I’m over at WeAreSC right now..I can’t seem to find the blog at reignoftroy…

          We didn’t always agree Jack, but you always added more than you took..for that I’m thankful..

          Hope alls well with Scott.

          • Jack B

            Nobody always agrees if they’re honest. You have some great takes and brought out the best in many of us.

            I learned a lot more than I ever expected on this blog. Gonna miss the Wolfster too. This was like some strange bar you would show up to where everybody had a role and took on the events of the day.

            I hadn’t even heard of the restructuring. Blows me away this thing was just dumped in the toilet like this.

          • Pudly76

            Almost makes me want to start a blog of my own, but who really has the time..at the end of the day though, your description of a weird bar is perfect…even on his last day posting RegalTrojan still espoused his conspiracy theories…it was the “Helton lovers” who brought down the blog…FUNNY.
            Where else could we come up with that kind of entertainment? The thing that’s hardest on me is the format of the other sites..just not as easy.

          • Chris

            I’m certain regal would say I fall into that category and I am certain that I did not want it to go away. Ive only been postng for this season and it took a few months to really understand the blogger did this just for the hits. He is still a snarky, cranky, negative guy, but this was always a “go to” just to see what negative thing he found to post and the reactions to it. The other sites will have a different format and unfortunately it will not be as much fun. This is a strange and contentious community, but a community none the less. Who would have thunk? Possibly Scott? I am sure if he goes rogue and starts another blog, we will find our way there. If he is reading this, do it you cranky ol’ negative jerk. I’ll even pay for a subscription. Fight on!

          • Michael Guarino

            Yea, Chris! I’d pay to see Scott again, too!
            Thanks for your comments. Hope to see you again!

          • GABBY702

            Format, exactly!………

          • Pudly76

            Yup, all so hidden, so far I like WeareSC best, but it’s a far cry from the open view this site had

          • Pudly76

            Saw that, sent him an email told him I’d help as much as I could..

          • Michael Guarino

            “A strange bar you would show up to where everybody had a role and took on the events of the day.” I don’t know how many beautiful, sentimental words will be typed today—-probably thousands—-but that sentence will stay with me for a very long time, Jack. Thanks for putting my feelings into words, old buddy. Actually, thanks for everything.
            [I hope they leave this last post up for a long time & it winds up with a thousand hits—-as a kind of belated thank you to Scott]…..

    • Pudly76

      What are you up to?

      There are some people at reign of troy, and others at the OCR..come join in if you like, and bring Michael G.. there are people looking for you and asking after you.

      • Jack B

        Hey Pud, I’ve looked around. Didn’t like the Register set-up.

        I’m gonna try out the new TrojanDailyBlogdotcom that just started up today with Allen Wallace. I used to subscribe to his mag SuperPrep when I followed recruiting really closely.

        Let’s get the old gang sparring again! It’s worth a shot I say. It was always us posters who brought the best info anyway, by a mile.

        • Pudly76

          Sure enough.. I’ll try it later today. Signing class looking good so far..Sewell seems to be a hard sell..we’ll see..

    • Guest.user73

      Well this sucks. For all the times I wanted to quit thid blog I never bothered to look for anything else . Now I’m going through SW withdrawal and all of the papers are the same. I have the Riverside PE it is so bland. I wonder when they will post some news with a little story to it.
      700 posts later this blog is still holding its own where do go?

    • Pac12 fan

      After emailing Tom Moore it appears Scott was layed off in recent cuts at the paper

    • ANDYISWINNNNNING!!!!

      You probably already know! Helton gets a new inked deal through 2023!!!

      • Jack B

        Yes – good for Helton and USC indeed. Nice touch the day before the final LOI Day.

        • ANDYISWINNNNNING!!!!

          I want to know the buyout clause!

  • rusoviet

    I wondered when I saw the new posts frequency significantly drop in a mere 36 hours – a real shame. I too will miss the give and take – I can say this this was a pretty real ‘free fire zone’ compared to what the ‘monitors’ permit elsewhere. Sorry to see this come to an end I shall miss Scott’s sarcasm in most cases well deserved – best to all.

    • Just logical

      The ‘free fire zone’ aspect was the draw that created a lot of interest. I hope somebody has some free time to recreate it, Just Owns comes to mind.

      • rusoviet

        Nah – if you go over and peek through their comments sections it’s ‘controlled’ far more than any one cares to think. It reminds one of the Wst 28th Street ‘brothers’ – sweater sleeves tied around their necks and smoking pipes while chuckling over the dreams they have over at the Tri-delt house.

  • timmay

    Wow. Didn’t see that coming. Bad idea. This could have been monetized better but it drove traffic. I guess Wolf left too because the only articles up are from weeks ago. Ha. He should start a blog. Reign of Troy isn’t very good with the layout and the way it posts. Free Market: fix this problem.

    • Just logical

      Hey Wolf, are you listening? Whatever you do, wishing you the best.

        Absolutely.

  • timmay

    PS Two strong points of this blog believe it or not were:

    1) Scott being a gadfly. Sunshine pumping by a blogger is not only boring and causes rot, it kills interesting convo. The sunshine pumpers will always show up in the comments but not the other way around.

    2) The UGLY fans being here. SC is not just about SC but about its rivalries and everything related to the schools. The back and forth helps make it work no matter how ridiculous Westwood High and its alum are. Some of the most active sites and groups are $hit-talking sites between rivals and within conferences.

    Other sites might want to take a cue.

    • JustOwns

      A truly fine eulogy.

  • 04Trojan

    Goodbye forever, my one and only, Charlie Bucket…

    To all the USC alums and fans on here, thanks for the banter. Was fun while it lasted.

    • uscr

      What ever happened to Mr. Bucket since I don’t always keep up with the comments? Sad day but I’ve got to admit, I didn’t always follow the connection of some of his blogs to USC football. Maybe his understudy will take over?

    • back at you, pal.

      this certainly was a bolt from the blue.

      perhaps the wolfman will re-emerge or at least write that tell-all book he admitted he gave thought to….

      of course i would pay a premium fee if necessary to get wolfman content on a new site….so long as he ran it.

        See you there

        • Sas

          Awesome!
          We can never stop talking SC, especially with signing day a few days away. What happened with Irvin?

          • Pudly76

            His dad and he really loved the db coach who’s also the co-DC..we were really late on him..weird though, he was all ND until his mom got sick.. yesterday they cancelled on bama.. and at least we got another shot..too little too late.
            Remember we have Hufanga, Williams, and still getting Griffin and probably ITS.

          • Sas

            Tell, CJ Pollard, Cook (I hope), Bolden, Pola-Mao, Hufanga. We’re solid here. If Clancy unleashes Jamel Cook we could have a tough group next season.

          • Pudly76

            So true, though I’m hearing a lot of talk about Cook leaving..

      I said this a few weeks back.
      When i first came around here i once disagreed with you about Bob Stoops being a threat to our program since Kiffin flopped in 2012 and Jack B jumped on me about only being here for a few months and he definitely had your back. That was my first memory and a good one. I’ve always respected you for being honest and wanting SC to be Great!

    What a crappy final post. Whoever owns this blog is crappy as hell and has no sense of grace. Say something kind about Scottie who has been running this thing for what, 15 years?

    • Fight On Forever!!

      Saying something kind about Scott wouldn’t keep up with the running theme of this blog… Negativity 24/7

      • LamontRaymond

        Yeah, he held SC’s feet to the fire – but that’s what journalists do. I often disagreed with the guy, but he was fun to read.

        • JustOwns

          Lamont you’ve always had a reasonable common sense attitude to your blog comments regardless of your point.

          So if this is your last comment Mr Ray, I’m happy to say I agree 100%.

  • Independent_George

    This is a bummer.

    Between the trolls and the debbie-downer reporting and the misinformation, it was still a fun blog. People here loved or hated USC, but they really didn’t take themselves that seriously. I laughed out loud numerous times, usually at work.

    Gonna miss it. The hyper-serious, OPs over at 247 and Rivals, they just aren’t as fun. They had better information, but it was not as fun.

    • Arturo

      Good bye, Independent. You always had something great to write.

  • Jethro G Sabbath

    This was a crazy place I’ll admit it will be missed. I do hope Scotty finds another outlet where he can do his thing.

          • good question: at the height of the pitched battle i must’ve been good for 15 20 posts a day but they came really easy and very fast, so while the time may not have been great, the attention was always there. the busier i was at work the easier it was to jump on and crank out a comment in between tasks, calls etc.

            but the wolfman was the catalyst for all Cadre works….he kept feeding us those underhanded softballs, baby!!!

      Not sure how to tell when you first signed up for an account, but I wanna say I started
      reading Flow’s blog 7-8 years ago, along with skimming the comments, and
      signed up and started posting 6-7 years ago. So I was familiar with some of the comments banter before I felt I could contribute – especially Chaz Bucket. Anyway, for me personally, I’ve always proudly been “04Trojan.” A 2004 USC grad from the Bay Area.

    This was the best blog and sw made it what it was. I hate to see it go. I heard on Petros all the cuts that were being done. I hope sw finds something work out there.

    This blog with USC diehards, trolls, and bruin fans made this blog great to read. Thanks for all the posts everyone participated in. I received great inside info from many of you and loved reading the political comedy also.

    Fight On!
    Til we meet again.

    It’s been fun while it lasted. I’m going to miss the great insight from this blog. Fight On my Trojan Family!!!

  • to my knowledge, and i’ve been on this blog 15-20 yrs, wolfman never missed a single day creating at least one post. even on x-mas he sent whatever young lady he was shacked up with out of the room so he could post the Greta Garbo pic.

    wolfman seemed to be the only journalist who understood that a blog run by a homer(s) stinks. the fact that he was brilliant enough to turn the Blogger into an antagonist will be studied in journalism classes henceforth. reminds me of the brilliant marketing in wresting in LA in the 70’s when Black Gordman would whip the Hispanics into a frenzy and turn the Olympic Auditorium into a madhouse.

    wolfman, if this is the end of the line, you were the best, and the best by so far a piece, there is no second place!!

        • Michael Guarino

          Class act, Gabby!

      • Sas

        Dodgers gonna do it this time Owns? I’m sick of hearing about how we just came up short.
        Urias has to pitch like a #1 Starter now for us if we don’t get another Ace.

        • JustOwns

          Been hearing that line since 1989. Still not comfortable with our starting pitching.

          Houston upgraded their starting staff while the Dodgers seem to favor standing pat w/o Darvish for the time being.

          Sammy, the Dodgers had a miraculous 2017 winning streak that will be hard to match in 2018. Even so, I’m still the ultimate forever Dodgers fan and eternal this is the year optimist. .

          • Sas

            Urias has to grow up fast and become that “star” now. Almost immediately, but realistically he has to pitch like that in October. He’s young but champions get it done on the big stage and he should be a big time arm this year.
            Puig has to continue to walking a straight line in the clubhouse while staying patient at the plate. I hope he can take his game up to another level and do some real damage.

            I think Toles will play Left and lead off, after that it’s a hitters lineup…..

            This lineup should be dangerous each night. They’re all gonna see a lot more good pitches to hit from opposing team’s because the next guy will be a tough out and the guy after him, and so on. Pederson might even have his best year statistically being protected by all these hitters.
            Chris Taylor
            Corey Seager
            Justin Turner
            Joc Pederson
            Cody Bellinger
            Yasiel Puig

            Tasmania has stop swinging for the fences and look to be a contact hitter early on in my opinion.

            I still think we need one more big arm. Not a “really good” 2nd or 3rd in the rotation guy. But a legitimate “Ace” to back Kershaw. Look at all the WS Champs lately. They all had two aces because the days of your #1 being enough are gone.

            Kershaw can’t have all the weight on him for 162 games and then a Postseason. He needs help.

          • JustOwns

            I do agree Sammy.

          • Sas

            My bad Owns. I read my comment to you and noticed it said Tasmania instead of Yasmani.

          • JustOwns

            I understood.

          • Sas

            I think I have missed more SC Basketbal this season since the datys of the Lion Center.

        • gotroy22

          They were saying on the MLB Channel that Darvish wants to return to LA!

          • Sas

            I was reading that the Dodgers dont want to keep him though. And that they also want to get rid of Matt Kemp. He wasn’t invited to Dodgers Fanfest because they didn’t want him and the organization to feel awkward answering the tough questions.

      You said it, Charlie. Scott was getting hits in the 100’s BETWEEN seasons. I don’t know how long people will be blogging —something new always comes along—but for as long as we do (say, the next 25 years), nobody will top what Scott was pulling off year in and year out. The guy was a master.
      And he’ll be missed…big time. By tomorrow it’s gonna begin dawning on people what they’re missing.

    • WEB_Dupree

      For me, the wacky hey day of this blog ended several years ago, but I still can’t believe it’s going away. I think I’ve been coming here daily for over a decade now, and it seems like you were here pretty much the whole time, in one guise or another.

      I already missed the zany times we used to have, when people were posting under multiple handles, posting as characters, etc. Even though they have been “retired” for a long time, it feels like Westwood Rob, Ralph Von Albertson, and the others are vanishing along with this blog. And even though everyone hated it, I enjoyed the “Nigel Tottenham” story-telling experiment as well. I had some pretty awful jobs during some of my years reading this blog, and coming here brightened my day so many times.

      Wolfman, you are a strange character, but I can’t imagine the last 10 years of USC football without this blog making sardonic comments about the whole crazy saga.

      Best of luck to you, Bucket/Smackula/Yoda/et al. This blog has gone to visit that great soft-serve ice cream machine in the sky.

      • i think the array of people “in Character” may have been a unique era in the blog-o-sphere.

        glad you dropped by, i don’t know if i ever stated it outright, but the Nigel Tottenham novelas were one of the very high points of the blog….the narrative style reminded me of Swift/Mary Shelley and published in periodical manner just like he olden days…mini-masterpieces. and what made them even better were the confused and angry comments from trOXans who could not understand what was going on!!

        during the same time i was working crazy long hrs and the busier i was, the more Bucket posted, took the edge off.

        as ive stated above, since Bruins never give up, i’m looking forward to the wolfman’s tell all book or reemergence on a new blog….

        #HoldingOut

        • WEB_Dupree

          I hardly posted here during the past year or so, but I still visited the blog frequently, even though all the serious, on-topic discussions made me a bit sad. I missed the irreverent, off-topic malarkey of the old days. So many fond memories of nonsensical debates…

          The guy who triumphantly announced that he had checked the California Bar website, and there was no such attorney as “Ralph Von Albertson” is one of my favorites. And I always enjoyed your commitment to keeping up the idea that “the Cadre” was actually a group that had meetings at a strip club to plan its trolling.

          Thanks for the kind words about Nigel. I’m actually trying to write something in the spirit of those stories now, off the blog, but it was a unique opportunity to try to tell those stories and interact with the haters at the same time.

          And interacting with haters is what this blog was all about.

      • Jethro G Sabbath

        Didn’t you once say you considered creating a Muslim character to throw into the mix but ultimately decided against it because of how some people might have responded?
        You may well have made the correct decision but it sure would have fun to observe.

        • WEB_Dupree

          That’s true, I did say that once. The prospect of the sheer nastiness that would be posted by some people on this blog was enough for me to stay away from that idea. I guess that’s part of why I stopped goofing off in these threads. Baiting old coots into saying something offensive just got old after a while.

          I never knew who was writing them, but I did enjoy Ed Garrett’s posts this past year or so. It was good to see somebody still doing the Lord’s work around here.

          • Jethro G Sabbath

            I have someone quite angry with me and I never even tried to upset him. One dumb one liner on my part set him off. It’s one of the layers of craziness that made this place what it is.

      Also, I can’t remember who did it, but the time that guy outed NOBS’s true identity was one of the all-time great moments on here. I do miss those days.

            detective work….although ultimately, incorrect.

            troy, troy, troy,
            What a colossally poor decision you have made! The blog is winding down and everyone is saying their fond farewells. Most everyone has dropped their grudges. You could have left well enough alone and honored our agreement to leave each other be but no, you couldn’t do it and had to resort to your ridiculous projection that I am a bigot.
            Why are you not a man of your word? I am.
            Too bad you had to pick the almost healed scab off of this sore. You leave me no choice but to reveal another of your very bigoted comments courtesy of the internet.
            Here’s a real gem from The DrudgeReport from 2013 copied and pasted directly, no editing whatsoever:

            gotroy22 Mark Talmont • 4 years ago

            Hispanic and black thugs tend to attack Asians because they are high achieving like whites.

            You really said that!

            I’m not making this up, here’s the link that anyone with a brain can make work:
            http://www.drudgereportarchives(dot)net/Article.php?ID=433505&

            Anyone who doesn’t believe me can check the comments there.

            Now go ahead and explain to everyone here how I am the bigot but you are the one who made that comment. Please, expand on the thoughts you had in 2013…

            You could do a reversal and edit your stupid comment to me and this one might go away too, or you could keep trying to play this game you can’t win. You have 35K+ comments and it’s all too easy to find some highly objectionable things you have said. Do you want to keep playing?
            Do you want everyone here’s lasting impression of you to be that comment or perhaps something even worse?
            Your choice

            There’s a valuable lesson there you might want to consider.

          • gotroy22

            What is with you and being a kissup, control freak cowardly weirdo lib? You actually think you are clever and can control people. You are a dolt and you are denied.

          • WEB_Dupree

            I forgot about the whole Fred Wallin thing! That was great, too.

          • Jethro G Sabbath

            Fort Wayne?

          • WEB_Dupree

            Ha, I’d forgotten about that code name as well. I went to high school in Fort Wayne before moving to LA to go to USC; that’s where that joke came from.

          • gotroy22

            Please move there, Kurt Waldheim Jr.

          • Jethro G Sabbath

            The Fort Wayne subject is still very sensitive around here. I tried three times to respond to your other comment and each time it was held for moderation for reasons I can’t understand.
            My main point was remembering how a certain reverend once admitted to being one of Bucket’s characters after I clumsily made that accusation. It had me thoroughly confused for quite a while.

          • WEB_Dupree

            I did get irritated when Bucket took credit (or blame, I suppose) for my characters, but I forgave him.

            Last night, I was trying to explain to my wife how very sad I am about this blog coming to an end, but it was impossible to convey without sounding like a nut.

            I was remembering just this morning about the time NOBS (in his “Joe Blow” period) got a letter published in the LA Times sports section as “Joseph B. Lowe”, and of course he had to come here to brag about it because we were the only people who could appreciate his prank. It’s too bad he hasn’t dropped by to post a final comment (as far as I can tell).

          • Jethro G Sabbath

            That’s right. I had it the wrong way around. It was such a rotten but effective trick that I later did basically the same thing and threw someone here into a state of confusion that probably still exists today.

            I also agree about trying to explain this place to someone. It’s pretty much impossible to describe it accurately and make it sound like it has any redeeming value.

          • steveg

            I always wondered about the redeeming value as I read through it. Laughs for sure. I did gain insight and good info (usually) on here though.

          • gotroy22

            You have no redeeming value, you prissy back stabbing lib, so that’s the problem.

          • Jethro G Sabbath

            Please teach me how to be an internet tough guy like you.

          • WEB_Dupree

            Somehow the mix of commenters was not too big, not too small; some had a sense of humor, some did not; political opinions were all over the place; the median age was probably surprisingly high, given how many people behaved like adolescents. Most days, you could check Scott’s posts and then scroll through all the comments if you wanted to, without taking too much time. This seemed to mean that everyone saw everyone else’s posts (until they allowed the block option). So you could post some crazy remark and people would actually read it; your comment wouldn’t just disappear in an avalanche of other comments, like they do on websites with national audiences. And the discussion was usually VERY freewheeling for a blog hosted by a mainstream publication.

            Of course, Wolfman’s dour attitude was the secret sauce.

          • gotroy22

            Where is your sock puppet, the kind and thoughtful juancarlos?

          • Jethro G Sabbath

            It’s amazing how one deceptive reply can set your mind. Are you always that easy to influence?

          • gotroy22

            I love how you obsessed in others about the things you did yourself. I will miss your childish antics thinking you were some kind of sophisticate.

        • grave soul

          Chucker Bucker and WEB_Dupree. that commenter’s name was none other than Betomas…let’s just say that I am 100% behind his outing of Joe Blow/Nobs/AKA USC booster Mark Larson (and any other racist bigots for that matter…unfortunately, there are several that made this blog page their home).

          Legend has it that Betomas now lives an ascetic lifestyle in remote German mountains, teaching tai chi to many disciples.

          Others say that he’s just an average bloke who got lucky on the hack that exposed Larson.

      • grave soul

        WEB, I hadn’t seen you comment in ages. Charlie Bucket and you had some of the wittiest comments on this blog. Cheers!

    Been reading this blog for over 10 years and now for my 1st post: Reading this blog was part of my daily entertainment and I will miss it terribly so I would be willing to pay the fees to get a dedicated USC blog on WordPress but I would need to have a few people help be monitors and I would need a few more people to agree to take turns posting a daily topic to get us started each day. Message me if you can help and I will get this up and running and have website by Friday. Btw: I graduated in 81 and spent my years watching John Robinson, Paul Mc Donald, Charles White and Marcus White at the Coliseum and Bob Boyd, Cliff Robinson and Purvis Miller at the Sports Arena.

          • Pudly76

            We’ve all been there at some point in our lives, hopefully he had his ducks in order. Just hope the arrogance he wrote with didn’t control the rest of his life and leave him unprepared for what has become a very unstable future for journalists..I found it telling that no other journalists posted anything on Scott losing his position, didn’t show much respect or affection towards him.

          Hi Pudley76:

          I have been trying to get the word out on the new blogsite but Scott’s people keep taking down my messages.
          Jack B, Gabby, Regal, GoldenTrojan, AtlDDS have already signed up and are posting.
          This is a free blog site and I am hoping to get a lot of the same group together.
          Please feel free to spread the word on Scott’s blog. It will make it harder for them to take everything down.
          Also if you post be sure to give the address as TrojanDailyBlog dot com

          • Pudly76

            The feature I miss on your board is the up vote or down vote, I always enjoyed using the feature as a way of saying hello without having to post, don’t know if you plan to include it in the future, but I enjoyed it..

    Wolfman, you are and will always be The Man.
    Fun to see that some of your biggest detractors here have owned up to that fact they appreciated you as Ringmaster for this circus of abuse. It was certainly not for lack of hits this site is going away. When political correctness kills a forum like this, we are all in trouble.
    Say what you will about other conferences and their “superior” appreciation for sport, there is no rivalry like UCLA v USC. Sure we live in the undisputed best region in the land and have other things to do but no other rivals can put together their Championships and come close to ours. It’s a great rivalry and has been fun berating, mocking, abusing and cajoling you dumb arse, self-absorbed, cheating bunch of dirt bags (and I say that with love in my heart) on this site.

      • j metaphor

        You mean except for the occasional 8 year string of beat downs we dish out.
        Tell you what, you keep Helton and we’ll keep Kelly and your only chance to beat him will be if he does get caught doing something wrong.

        • Jack B

          One of my favorite things about you is how you hold onto that 8-game streak like it was the Holy Grail of Accomplishment. Of course, ever since, USC has nailed you little gutties into the coffin like no other. Only 4 baby bruin wins since ’98. I’ll take that over 8-straight any day of the week.

          Can’t wait to face Kelly. USC is so much more than Helton, obviously. Kelly’s idea of a rival was ORE ST and UW in their down years. Surprise, Chip. Meet the King of L.A.

      Hi there 88,

      You and Encinitas were always the best and most enlightened of the Trolls and valuable additions to Inside USC.

      The McKay/Prothro rivalry was really one for the ages. Just insane games and both coaches had a serene command of their fates.

      Be good buddy.

      The classic games in the McKay/Prothro era were the last times ruin football mattered Kissy86er. You’ve sucked ever since, mainly because your administration always went cheap with the hires. IF Chip can’t save ruin football your SJW administrators should shut it down like UCSB.

  • Linkster

    Well, all things come to end. While in large part, Wolf provided the stimulus for conversation, it was the blog commenters that provided 95% of the meaningful content. To all of you, thanks. I never followed the recruiting scene so I came here for breaking news on that. I have viewed this blog for 10+ years so I need to find another place to go. I had various handles, got kicked off twice I think due to excessive moderation by the moderator. Believe me, Wolf read this blog. I am sure it was him who kicked me off once. Hard to believe the USC blog goes away and the UCLA blog continues? That place is a morgue. Who is in charge with the paper? What a mistake. Good times, bad times it was a worthwhile contribution to USC athletics. For that I am grateful. The Trojan spirit lives on I’m me 47+ years after graduation. God bless all and to all a good night! Fight on…

  • Sandy Underpants

    Just when this Blog was finally getting good it closes? Scott is the only Daily News writer that kept the SC blog for life, while the Bruins blog rotated staffers every 6 months. I guess when Scott finally moved out of his parents house the Daily News decided to just shutter this place out of respect. Congrats on your new studio apartment Scott, Sunland really is an awesome town and don’t let anyone tell you different. You will be missed, and as desperate as I am for USC talk, I won’t be going to the Orange County Register.

    A lot of you people, all you ever did was criticize Scott Wolf, right up to the end and now you’re going to miss him and or his blog? Mr. Wolf gave you all a forum to express your opinions and it was a place he could express his. Scott Wolf told it like it was when it came to USC football, he wasn’t a “Yes Man” who was going to fall in line with those running the Trojans football program. And this blog was pretty much the only USC forum where posters could could question and be critical of USC personnel, whether it were coaches, players, athletic director or senior administrators and not have to worry about being banned for stating your opinion. Any other USC forum/blog you either pump sunshine and go along with posters and moderators and their love of Clay Helton or they ban you.

    Good Luck finding another forum like Scott Wolf’s, ain’t going to happen, you’re all going to have to learn the words to Kumbaya if you want to post on those other USC sites, as you’re made to kiss Lynn Swann, Clay Helton and Max Nikias arse.

    • great points. imho, the worst blog on the web is “BruinsNation” what a bunch of homer nuts! once i criticized one wacky commentary on there and i received hate mail from the Editor!! ugh nothing worse then blind fanatics.

        “Bruinsnation” are just a bunch of cry babies that complain Bi**h about everything. If you disagree with they’re agenda, you get banned!
        Also they are so hateful that they purchase “fire coach so and so” URL as soon as a coach is hired.

        I love scott wolf! I’m already getting withdraw…. I’m visiting a blog that I know is no longer active!

        Damn you Daily News!

    • Just logical

      You’re right and that’s why I am hoping the blog Johnnynumbers wants to start gains traction. And yes, people did take shots at Wolf but the number of active participants spoke volumes about the blog. It was the controversy and humor (lots of that) along with the sports that brought them back. Though criticized Scott was very successful and I hope he does an encore.

    • Paul Muad’dib

      I came to this blog for the comment discussions, not Scott Wolf’s posts… I think most feel that way. And no, “Mr. Wolf” did not give us a forum, it was his employer. Nice try.

  • AtlDDS

    Wow! I’m off the site for a couple of days and all he*l breaks loose! No thanks to the blogger, but I have enjoyed reading and replying to the regular folks in the commenting crowd. I am glad that I have been able to contribute occasionally–hopefully for the positive enjoyment of all.

    This group allowed me to feel connected to USC better than in any other way since I moved to Atlanta in 1991. Thank you for that, ya’ll.

    I will miss reading the comments of Jack B, Gabby, Fred S, Mr. Guarino, Arturo, Pudly 76, Gabby and Paul M. I know I am missing some other names that are deserving of my recollection.
    Except for Encinitas Bruin and occasionally J. Metaphor, the bruin trolls will not be missed, but I assume that they will return like the insects they are–Ha, Ha!

    I hope we all gather somewhere else in the Land of Intranet to talk of things USC. I just hope I hear about it where the meeting is going to be held!

    Fight On, everybody!

    • Paul Muad’dib

      Same here. This blog had the best USC fans commenting. Lots of fun.

      Fight On, A!!

  • Pudly76

    Scott is still tweeting today under the insideUSC handle..

    • Paul Muad’dib

      It appears that Mr. Wolf could dish out criticism but he could not take it.

  • Ted

    Just one last thing! Does anyone know what happened to NOBS? I feel partly responsible for driving him away from this blog… Hope he is alive and kicking and sitting in his “suite” in the coliseum jabbering on about how important he is. Hope he is not in a ditch somewhere.

      I was under the impression that he was banned during Scott’s last purge a few years ago.

    • gotroy22

  • Chapelhilltrojan

    I’m very sad. I have enjoyed all the regulars prospectives. Being on the east coast this was my daily fix for USC info and discussions.

    It seems impossible for me to believe in a town this divided that a inside UCLA will happen while an Inside USC will die. Look for the Dauly News to find someone to work on the cheap and for this site to be back up sooner than expected. Hang in there guys.

  • steveg

    I can only say this feels like kids in the middle of a divorce. Kind of heartbreaking. I have just finished reading all the comments on here. There is so much more here than just a blog. We somehow became family like, arguing but still there, agreeing with each other, encouraging each other, and most of all learning from each other. What a ride we have had together. Bless all of you, may we meet again. Anyone on here can contact me at honestfisherman09 at hotmail dot com. I will look forward to a new blog and hopefully we will have as much fun as we have had on here.

  • Tebow_Obama

    Scott Wolf should create a blog of his own, he has the following to do it. I know he won’t be posting on any of the USC football forum sites because those sites don’t allow anyone to question what’s going on with USC football.

    Scott Wolf wouldn’t last 2 minutes posting on the USC football forum sites. You have to be all in on Clay Helton and the way he runs the team, if you were to mention there might be a coaching dilemma at USC the thread gets locked and you’ll be banned. It’s a circle jerk of Sunshine Pumpers all holding hands singing Kumbaya about how great they think things are going with USC football.

    • GABBY702

  • jon lester

    Scott, been away a few days and see that now you’re gone and some guy by the name of tom moore is taking over. wtf? Nowhere else to go for anything but rah-rah coverage of our team. The war room and an occasional post on wearesc will sometimes lend themselves to a critical approach but nothing like scotty. Though your apparent distaste for the program would pop up now and then (voting usc 9th? was it in the final 2017 AP poll after their rose bowl victory was a bit much) I always read your blog and articles first. Wish you good luck a happy life.

        That’s good I’m glad swann finally did something to help the coaching staff. No it’s up to Helton to find the best assistance coaches money can buy. Too bad you can’t read his contract though. Swann has his way out if Helton does not perform/with out giving him any money. Solid recruiting class like I said before Williams was a lock to be a Trojan let’s see how usc uses this young man’s talent now.

  • Mr Jenkins

    Mr. Jenkins observes the last few days on the blog to be eerily similar to … last call at the neighborhood pub. The house lights have come up, the music has stopped playing, the people who were arguing all night have made new friends, and the barkeeps can’t get anybody to leave (in my short bartender career, Mr. Jenkins found playing ABBA helped clear the room).
    Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.

    I mentioned a couple of things that made this blog work. Here’s another: Having a blogger has been around enough to know USC, not just the sports teams, but the culture and history of ‘SC and ‘SC alum and fans. It also helps when the person knows a little about football. (Reign of Troy has a nice young lady who unfortunately doesn’t fit any of the bill.)

    I’m tempted to just put up a simple blog or forum, and post SC and related sports news, and having random people post daily. It’s all about the comments anyway.

  • Sas

    With no crowd factor pretty much all game SC went cold at the end to blow this one against (IMO) one of the weaker Bruin Teams based on their lack of a big inside game. Aaron was slowly having a solid game early and comes in late and takes warm up shots the second the ball hits his fingers.
    Holiday is a baller. Next time we may be playing to get into the tournament which blows.

    • Ted

      Sam my friend, making excuses??!! It’s unbecoming of you? At least you blamed the “crowd factor” your brethren rah rahs would have blamed it on the sanctions! How about just admit the truth? Bruins kicked your boys ARRESSS!

      #LoseOn

      • Sas

        Ted. I admit that we blew it. We locked down the Bruin offense in the paint. We blew that game. The worst coach in my high school’s history (Banning High) is 0-15 and he could tell us that USC gave this up.

    • Jack B

      Face it Sas. USC totally blew it. We had ’em right where we wanted them with 25 secs to go, the ball and all we need is a 2-pointer. We throw up some half-cocked hairball with no chance to go in and ucla skates away with the win. USC basketball. It’ll never let you down.

      Mike✌
      You misread my emojis because those were staring at my infielders who love to make noise while holding on a runner at third, who don’t know how to creep before the pitch is delivered to get into defensive mode, and most of the other ingredients they forgot while playing for other teams that dropped them at tryouts which they thought was practice. No heart today up and down the roster. I was disappointed because they talk big in the dugout like kids do and I did I’m sure, but they don’t flex any kind of emotion to want the infield. SS should run it, 2nd base should feel the same, and 1st and 3rd should be mentally up to speed with any pickoff scenarios. I really want bring the……. “my way is not my, but the baseball gold glove hooves vacuum nothing gets hit past me way”
      No Mike, you were the first person I was gonna comment to earlier and I thought this is a long post, but I know you are only being the supporting buddy ☺ I’m a little annoyed that we took two San Berrdo kids who weren’t at least upgrades or worth a Uniform and Hat. I’m only being serious. This is my cousins want to win now mindset instead of the first year is the core group and tough times look at things.
      These kids are not thinking about the possibilities of them showing too early that they may not be cut out to play serious ball at this point as a kid.

      • Michael Guarino

        I’m sure gonna miss YOUR heart, Sam. I never met a guy with more of it! [Maybe you can figure out a way of giving out little pieces to people who need more of it—- since you have “heart-plus”, my comrade]!

        #NothingIsInVain

        • Sas

          Mike you are right. I think I expect too much, but I have met some great parents who are awesome about allowing their kids to be coached by the coaches and aren’t calling over the kid and controlling them from the bleachers. Yucaipa “area” is really my leader in that category. Big baseball town, but they have big time control issues, also they fear Banning Little League more now than ever that it’s not even flattering because we don’t beat them at all age levels. The ones that do lose constantly find ways to move around our team roster requirements on AS Weekend. They were the biggest MLB achieving town from District 58 for sure but also hold a lot of weight in general. There’s too many youth angles.

          • Michael Guarino

  • Pudly76

    Sam, I’ve been a coach for many years, starting in the late 70’s, coaching my youngest brother, until my daughters graduated high school…and it’s been my opinion that the age group of kids 11-13 were always the toughest.. they are young enough to be easily distracted by childish things and old enough to show they can play from time to time. Frustrating would be an understatement.. Keep the faith, my friend..

    Good things come to those that wait…teach the love of the game, at the end of the day that’s what the kids will carry with them.

      • Sas

        BKU and Clancy are still not seeing eye to eye and BKU returning is not a done deal at all. Clancy can control things like which kids are in and who’s not when BKU is up top which is why he doesn’t want BKU anywhere around.
        I guess BKU has a lot of Coach O in him with his effect on getting his guys fired up. Clancy (all this I was told) does not like any kind of confrontation as in his normal personality and definitely more so with this situation which I think is BS.
        if Clay Helton sides with anyone here it will be a beginning to the end for his Career. But Clancy has not earned the right to be in the position to make this what it is. Helton I’m sure is in a tug of war between the two because of his good spirit but we’ll see something soon on this. I’m thinking right after signing day decisions will have been made by all three Coaches. They won’t be on the same page I’m assuming and we will get the run a round on the why’s and what’s next.

        • GABBY702

          good stuff, Sas!

          • Sas

            Hey bud, Tui decommiting is supposedly news that the staff had expected for over a month. My friend told me he was “cut loose”. The staff are hoping they flip Elijah Winston tomorrow during his ceremony. He’s not a DLineman but I guess they never wanted more than 4 DL in this class and really want Winston.

          • Jack B

            Sounds like sour grapes, don’t you think. UW steals a USC recruit and we conveniently say he was “cut loose.” Nothing like losing kids very late that have been committed to you forever.

            It’ll be interesting to see if USC finds a way to finish strong since there seems to be so much negativity lately about Helton and his fighting coaches. And if it’s really true that USC loses big-time guys who were told not to sign early so USC could be sure of space, Helton will be forced to face monumental criticism. Oooh, don’t you just love to lose DLs? It’s not like they’re valuable at all!

          • Sas

            I guess the kid we got from JC was enough. This was said to be happening but I personally never took it seriously because I’ve been more worried about USC trying to get Jackson Carman (fu**!) and Peneii Sewell. The WR from Lancaster probably not coming now that they believe we will get the TE that they desperately wanted but tried to hide for a while now. Jack I hate losing a DL. Speaking of DL. I hope we don’t lose BKU because his value to the program he speaks for itself, but also we (actually Helton) look like fu**ing idiots since The Eagles won the Super Bowl and the DL Coach was who…..???????…..Chris Wilson.
            I know he was very average but that will look awful on us .

          • Jack B

            Ya, I’m not buying for a second that the JC kid was enough and I don’t think the UW Huskies are either. The Huskies are basically kicking our arse lately. Those are the facts and some people are flat out saying we already lost Sewell.

            So it looks like another weak-in-the-trenches class, par for the course for USC.

            I’m just hoping for a miracle that all this negative USC recruiting vibe (rah rah sites excluded) doesn’t come true on Wednesday. There’s always hope until they sign on the dotted line.

            Helton’s always finished fast, so he deserves getting the benefit of the doubt. But this time he’s coming off the Cotton Bowl cave-in, and with all the BKU vs Clancy rumors, things could be a lot more shaky looking now to recruits.

          • Sas

            I think Signing Day is the least of our worries if we see BKU leave. It could be a start of players like Rodney Peter to Keyshawn who have platforms to say this was a bad call for the program and all that kind of stuff. Keary Colbert would definitely be disappointed to see his best friend move on over this DC who stays home during half the year instead of planning and recruiting.

          • Jack B

            Well it stands to reason that if BKU stays, we’ll sign better DLs. But our competition is already using the possible BKU departure against us. Helton has been unable to make the issue subside. That in itself is bad.

            I never say Signing Day is the least of our worries. It’ll be a big worry if we fall down in the trenches again (as it looks like), regardless of our skill.

            Let’s face it. Things are not looking great for USC’s signing day right now. We can always say we’ll get ’em next year (those needed OLs and DLs) which just means we didn’t get it done this year. We shall see. Wednesday will answer a lot of questions.

          • Sas

            Roy Hemsley is gone for sure now according to the sites. Not that he was in the lineup but or anything but it’s another thing to add to the negatives on the chalk board when discussing the USC offensive line.
            And if Sewell goes elsewhere. Lets forget about Utah and say the hometeam just got their man, but if he ends up at Oregon over USC then that will be a kick in the n*ts because Oregon doesn’t even have a OL Coach. The Head Coach is gonna coach both the OL and all of the his original HC duties? That’s gonna end up being too much for him and I think it will effect his team somewhere down the line. But still either way Oregon getting him while we put in way more time and they’re last coach who was recruiting Sewell dipped out to FSU after only one season would be hard to swallow.

            Hemsley can’t play or he wouldn’t be leaving. That’s no loss.

            The real loss is that USC may end up whiffing entirely on all the big gun OLs it wanted except for the well-regarded OL we signed. He’s probably already better than Lobendahn.

            The truth is USC doesn’t have very many good recruiters and one of our best may be already out the door. Helton isn’t telling, so how are we supposed to know!

            Can’t wait for Wednesday, come rain or shine.

            I saw that. I like his tape. Good off the edge!

          • Sas

            That’s why I think it wasn’t that hard to believe they let Tuli Letuligasenoa go for this kid. He’s gotta be an edge guy. And he’s no pretty camp show pony. He played some good competion at Central Catholic. 6-3 235. He looks like he could be a solid 245 right now.

          • gotroy22

            We are going for Oregon recruits now?

          • Sas

            I also thought that and i didn’t really remember this kid at all but he looks like he’s a player that will find his way on the field at 6-3 1/2 235Lbs. Looks like a ready to go OLB. Looks like he’s gonna play a role on the edge like Nwosu.

          • gotroy22

            Who else recruited him? Boise St?

          • Sas

            Most of the Pac 12, Notre Dame wanted him, Oregon was his school loud and clear early on indicating that was pretty much locked in to where a lot of schools moves on since it was more than a strong possibility he might go there. It was more like a definite since his older brother is already a Duck and they planned this out for a while or has planned it. But when Willie Taggart left after just 1 season and didn’t even address his team or recruits the kid felt betrayed or not trusting of the school so that’s when SC saw an “IN” with him.

          • gotroy22

            Excellent. But I’m still upset about Sewell. Why did he sour at the end?

          • Sas

            Me too. I think overall he wanted to play for USC because the Poly connection there is at the school, but the reality was (what some USC recruiting expert said) that his motor is not very good and he went for the safe path to not having to compete. Still, i was pretty disappointed.

          • steveg

            If he has wheels bring him in. We need all the speed we can get.

          • Sas

            I hear you there Steve. I can’t stop bringing up that we have the same OL Coach after our Offensive Line ALLOWED THE MOST SACKS IN THE NATION and how we boldly went for only two OT’s all season really who were ranked high at #1 and #4 so there was much highlighted pressure and missed by a lot more than we had all thought.
            I am still wondering when USC Football was ok with this kind of performances on and off the football field?

          • gotroy22

            Kick in the n*ts!

          • Sas

            Rivals is saying Sewell is Oregon or Utah .
            Oh and Oregon has no OL Coach right now.

            SS has Sewell to USC. I wish I could paste the page my friend sent to me because he and Gaoteote are really close now and in SS words “Peneii Sewell doesnt have the number friends at Oregon compared to USC and his relationship with Gaoteote has gotten really strong where he has multiple friends at USC”

            I guess Williams is not gonna be a Trojan. I’m not sure 100% because I wasn’t really paying attention to my friend on this one because I was reading the info on Sewell ha! But then be told me the TE from Ontario Colony is gonna be a Trojan and they’ve really stressed having a suitable kid so I guess they got what they wanted in that regard.

            I really hope this SH*T holds up to signing day because I told my buddy I’m letting some of my pals know all of this so you and SS need to be on point. Ha! I guess Rivals is really confused because they are always feeling another way than SS or G.Mart who usually get it right.

    Helton signs contract extension through 2023 season……….massive crotch kick to all the Helton haters……….gomer helton and tool_obama may never recover

    • trojan_1972

      Interesting time for an extension. I had expected Swann to evaluate the 2018-19 team before making this decision.

      Gabby, absolutely right that this was a sucker punch to the anti-Helton crowd. Three more years before this becomes an issue again.

      Missing you guys and gals here! I have gone to the new SCNG site and Reign of Troy, but it just isn’t the same! Scott really did organize a great group!

      • AtlDDS

        you almost have to have a coach on a rolling 4 or 5 year extension or the recruits think that the coach they sign with won’t be there the entire time at the university they sign with…. this is naive thinking, really on the part of the kids.

        I am sure it isn’t guaranteed money or Saban money, so when Helton proves what many of us suspect–that he has reached his ceiling as a head coach– when Swann lets Helton go after 2018, the buyout won’t be as bad as what ucla had for the Mora firing.

        • trojan92

          that is exactly right! the buyout is what matters not the length of the extension.

        • gotroy22

          But isn’t it naive to think that any college wouldn’t fire their head coach if they don’t produce regardless of the contract extention like the ruins, ASU and UA just did? It seems like the extention was a dumb move smacking of desperation.

            Not quite. Close but no cigar. Wallace started SuperPrep mag back in the mid-’80’s and was also with Scout for many years.

          • Sas

            That’s who I meant. I forgot that they were completely two different sources. I never got a subscription but I remember my friend wanted his recruiting issues around the time Pete Carroll was grabbing every kid that USC wanted it seemed and he called the phone line to order where he was almost immediately informed that the Mag/Co. were in the process of stopping for whatever reasons but my friend would not stop bugging the guy because he was a really polite and super informative on what we could do to get “the most recruiting information possible” plus we were bugging him for an issue that didn’t even exist that was we for some reason thought was a special USC recruiting edition. But we were wrong, the guy was still kind enough to keep talking about recruiting with him, I want to say he was talking to both of us as I kept telling my friend to ask about this or that. We thought it was an operator for the Magazine and finally after good lengthy conversation my friend asked him “do you also like recruiting and subscribe to the Mag?”
            The guy tells us “No I’m Andy Wallace”….You can think two little dorks or not but we thought it was the coolest thing ever to be talking recruiting with him since there were only so many outlets for recruiting back then and the main two were Andy Wallace and/or Tom Lemming. He was so cool that he ended letting my friend have one of his personal notebooks that was like a bootleg magazine.
            I know that took forever, but that just took me back to a time where we thought life was all beer, chicks, and USC Football!

          • Jack B

            Allen Wallace was in business with SuperPrep for a really long time, like almost 30 years. I used to religiously buy his stuff when I was much younger. There weren’t many places to get this type of info.

            Not today they didn’t. They featured USC as by far the big dog that needs to lead the Pac-12 out of our crappy mess of an image problem. Rod Gilmore and Mack Brown were also very complimentary of USC.

            By the way. We’ve been out of it with Sewell for awhile now. Never a real chance at him today, period.

          • Sas

            I have to believe that Neil Callaway being one of the more older coaches around may not have been such a positive for us. Jackson Carman’s High School said in a very kind respectable way said that USC was lucky just to have been a finalist and have any interest from Jackson since USC OL Coach Neil Callaway wasn’t even recruiting the top OT in the country. He didn’t make the visits or any calls. The coach mentioned what Carman indicated how things looked at USC during his OV, and the Coach pointed out Clancy Pendergast was not out visiting players that were Defensive targets of USC (who JC considered friends). The Coach was very much in the know if things because he also dropped Ronnie Bradford’s name and how he didn’t visit Olaijah Griffin.

            Jackson Carman is a smart kid. I can’t blame him for only noticing the laziness that our staff showed at times and continues to show.
            So I think the ONLY reason Sewell was pumped about possibly being a Trojan was because he made a great deal of friendships with a lot of the Poly players that eventually became the deciding factor in the end which overall makes our Clay Helton and his Staff (PENDERGAST, BRADFORD, CALLAWAY) look like a bunch of lazy freeloaders in person coming off some very poor performances on the field this season.

            This makes you think how the h*ll Clay Helton’s extension was made yesterday when the highlighted problems being in his staff have not been addressed.

            SMH at how a “Top Football Program” like USC can move forward with the same OL Coach after allowing the most Sacks in Nation, and then get turned down by the their TOP 2 OL TARGETS who were #1 and #2 from this day last year to today. I can’t find any reasons to say not to worry next year.

          • gotroy22

            Yes it was a shocker to see Sewell flip to lowly Oregon.

    Final ASU 80 USC 78 USC led 78 to 71 with 2:30 left on the clock. ASU scored the final 9 points. USC played the clock from that moment to the end, waiting until the clock showed less than 10 seconds before running a seemingly unrehearsed play, none of which drew a foul. The Trojans stalled the offense when the score was 78 to 78 missing a contested shot under the basket as time ran out, leaving ASU with 30 seconds to shoot the last shot, which they converted with 1.4 secs left.

      I miss the Scottie snark on a night like tonight. This team ai’t that good. When Matthews fouled out, they rolled over.

      • GABBY702

        You forgot to mention attendance

        • gotroy22

          Was it a sell out? The Scummies have been playing badly since being ranked in the top ten.

      • Pudly76

        Try to see trojandailyblog dot com, many of the others are posting there too

        Imagine his comments after that epic collapse…

    • gotroy22

      A bitter loss!

      • Sas

        OMG! We ended up losing that game?
        Damn. Our momentum we had was taken away like candy from a baby. I got a phone call in the 2nd half and I forgot about watching the rest.

  • Tebow_Obama

    Have you all seen the Sunshine Pumpers new blog site? LMFAO!

    The layout looks like a 3 year old designed it, so simple…only simpletons would use it.

    The site tanked.

    ROTFLMFAO!

    • GABBY702

      says the lonely little old man who lives down in his mom’s basement. What happened tool_obama, everyone deserted you?….HA HA!!!!!

      must suck to be you

  • AtlDDS

    Thanks to SCNG for keeping this blog up long enough for a good alternative to get rolling. trojandailyblogdotcom

  • steveg

    Ray, say it ain’t so.

  • steveg

    After all these years this is the biggest thread I have ever seen and now I just discover you can sort by the newest posts.

    • Pudly76

      Yeah, even using it forever!!

      • gotroy22

        Maybe they will just leave it like a vacant lot that all the kids can play on like in the old days…17 to go to 1000!

        • Pudly76

          If they were smart they’d leave it up and sell ad space, people would fill this thread forever..

          • gotroy22

            Who needs a blogger?

          • Pudly76

            Scott proved that for years..

          • gotroy22

            Between you, sas, Andy, Regal, hoolihan, schammer and Mike I had all the updates I ever needed.

          • AtlDDS

            They aren’t that smart. That’s why the newspaper business is going to h*ll in a handcart.

          • Pudly76

            Too obvious for the Illuminati to grasp..

        • steveg

          We can call it the Sandlot!! Beware of the beast.

    • Sas

      Me too. I can’t remember a thread so big besides the Rose Bowl win when Sam and the boys came back to beat Penn St

    • Tebow_Obama

      Years posting on this blog site and you just figured out how to sort the replies?

      You’re a genius. LOL!

    • AtlDDS

      Like myself, you are an analog man living in a digital world.

      • steveg

        Most of the other sites are kind of hard to deal with, having to go through articles to see comments. wearesc is really dreary most of the time. RoT is pretty good but I think the new one will rock, given time. MG and SAS need to show up.

  • Tebow_Obama

    Bring back Scott Wolf, his insight into USC football and the topics he posted of which we all discussed are what drove this blog to success,

  • Tebow_Obama

    Good Lord, that Trojan Daily blog is dying a slow painful death.

    • GABBY702

      It’s tool time but on one is buying-in…..pathetic!

  • Porfirio666

    El pueblo, unido, jamas sera vencido!

    • ANDYISWINNNNNING!!!!

      Just stand in line! Pay your fees! Learn English! Wait your turn!

      • Porfirio666

        I did all of that and have been a taxpaying citizen for nearly 40 years.

  • Tebow_Obama

    It’s Official…that Trojan Daily blog has failed. LOL!

    • GABBY702

      Everyone left you………HA HA!!!!!!

  • Oh, rats

  • Tebow_Obama

    So I’m on 3 message boards and 2 blogs thoroughly exposing the USC Trojans second rate head football coach, incompetent “Yes Man” athletic director and scandalous corrupt president.

    LOL!

    • WESTWOOD ROB

      Good to see you keeping busy Wolfman!

      • GABBY702

        When you’re unemployed I guess you have plenty of time to troll all the blogs

    • GABBY702

      And Helton got an extension..Laugh is on you…f—–king troll

  • Tebow_Obama

    So the word around the camp fire is that second rate USC football head coach Clay Helton’s contract extension is not guaranteed…not one year of it. The contract extension was given only to secure the 2018 Trojan recruiting class and that decision to do so was proposed and carried out at the behest of a few members of the USC Board of Trustees.

    • GABBY702

      Fake news…………a true tool at work

  • Tebow_Obama

    So here is the order of USC employees on the Hot Seat…in order of who are closer to being shown the door

    1. Clay Helton – Has this upcoming season to get the Trojans not just an appearance in the CFP, but a win or else its adios.

    2. Max Nikias – A significant drop in fund raising due to corruption allegations during the Max Nikias regime is hugely embarrassing for USC. Max Nikias de-emphisizing and disregarding so much tradition within the athletic dept. is finally being paid attention to and isn’t going over well with the Boosters and Trustees that be.

    It’s about time they woke up.

    3. Lynn Swann – Trojan Boosters feel they’re not getting their monies worth as Swann’s public persona has stirred frustration among Trojan fans who see Swann as high priced irrelevancy that USC can afford to do without.

    4. Andy Enfield – Maybe too nice a guy who hasn’t figured out that trying to please all players by trying to find playing time for all hasn’t allowed the Trojans to find their groove or at least sustain any continuity of wins that will be needed if the Trojans are able to earn a place at the Big Dance.

    Enfield didn’t have the luxury of being able to string together as many quality recruits while at Florida Gulf Coast and appears to be having problems settling on and committing to a set roster of starters…in other words, Enfield’s constant substitution rotation is killing any groove the Trojans should be in by now.

    • GABBY702

      (crickets)

      • Tebow_Obama

        How’s that Blah Blah Blah…Blog that has completely tanked working out for you?

        ROTFLMFAO!

        • GABBY702

          Much better than the rinse and repeat comments you post, day after day after day.

          Where are all your supporters?

          ROTFLMFAO!

          • Tebow_Obama

            Gabby, Pudly and Jack Bozo still haven’t been given the heads up about where most other Wolf blog members have congregated.

            Lets keep it that way.

            LMFAO!

          • WESTWOOD ROB

            AA meetings?

          • Tebow_Obama

            Close…very close!

            That was a good one…LMFAO!

  • Tebow_Obama

    Gabby has spent her days and nights endlessly searching for me on every blog and message board she can think of.

    Gabby is a mess…LOL!

    • Trojans 6942

      What are you going to do, when this blog ends. Your a fu**in idiot. Bye the way, you didn’t get under my skin. I’m just stating the obvious.l Blow hole……

      • Tebow_Obama

        LMFAO!

        • GABBY702

          Ted is looking for you, he’s all backed up(ouch!!!!!)

      • GABBY702

        His feeling are hurt. No wants to listen to his BS.

  • No more Tebow. No more Just Owns. No more Ted. No more Scott Wolf.

    There is a God in heaven

  • Tebow_Obama

    LMFAO!

    Clay Helton has been re-classified as a 3rd Tier or 3rd rate coach by even more CFB media outlets.

    Outstanding…AHA HA HA HA HA!

    Classic!

    • GABBY702

      Tool_Obama gets fired and Helton gets an extension

      Outstanding…AHA HA HA HA HA!

      Classic!

  • Jack B

    Trojan Daily Blogdotcom is acquiring a large following. Lots of great banter and content over there from what I can see.

    Allen Wallace, who started SuperPrep magazine, actually interacts with the posters and answers questions over there.

    • Tebow_Obama

      Beat it, Jack Bozo. You wouldn’t be over here trying to recruit if that blog you Sunshine Pumping clowns are trying to save wasn’t dying a slow painful death.

      Tell your story walkin’, Bozo!

      LMFAO!

  • Tebow_Obama

    Allen Wallaces Trojan Daily Blah-g is failing miserably, please pay his site a visit so it’s sunshine pumping clown regulars can shut up and quit pandering to try and save it.

    That site is going down in flames.

    LOL!
