In 3 Days...

The wrecking is almost at hand. December 1st cannot come soon enough for every Trojan fan. I've never really gotten excited about the UCLA game as much as this year. My freshman year, I witnessed the 47-22 beat down at the Coliseum and Mike Williams OWNING a helpless UCLA CB Matt Clark.

The following year USC came away from the Rose Bowl with a 29-24. The game was pretty boring with a slew of field goals by Ryan Killeen (who was garbage).

Then in 2005 we saw the bloodbath of the 66-19 dismantling of the Ruins. That game was sweet. It was over midway through the 2nd quarter and the rest of the game was salt in the wounds.

Last year was an abomination. The play calling and execution was terrible and we let a potential National Championship slip away at the hands of a shitty fucking team and an even shittier coach. I'm sure Pete Carroll and Co. are salivating at the chance to make it back to the Rose Bowl with a win over the much hated Bruins.

Tommy Trojan is covered in tape, Dorrell is cleaning out his office and Carroll's blood pressure is through the roof since he's so jacked. Saturday will hopefully be a glorious day. The USC Sports Talk tailgate will keep us well fed and drunk and we should see a dominant performance by the Trojans. Cheers to that.

Fight On!

Illusions of Grandeur

We are now just one day closer to the dismantling of UCLA (FYI, UCLA now highlights the Cunts their uniform, so we will maintain consistency) at the Coliseum on Saturday afternoon. Tuesday of Hate Week brings some "quotes" from the delusional Westwood Wankers from the infamous "BruinsNation" Here are a few that will knock your socks off from the brilliant all- knowing Festor.

"I am sure our defensive guys are all shaking in their boots about facing an offense which it blew up all over the Rose Bowl last season"

At this point, the UCLA defense should be shaking in their boots about facing any offense with a pulse, unlike Oregon minus Dixon, Utah, or the steamrolling offense of Notre Dame. The way USC moved the ball against ASU, the offense has definitely improved and will be dangerous for once.

"Their running game is not all that formidable this year, compared to the one our defense destroyed last year."

Right. The idea of Chauncey Washington and Stafon Johnson along with the dangerous McKnight isn't at all formidable, considering we did have the all world CJ Gable and Emmanuel Moody last season. I seriously hope they are kidding because with a healthy offensive line, we will rush for at least 200 yards, easily.

"If our D can hold these guys to within 20 points..."

I quit reading mid sentence because this asshole has no idea what he is talking about. If we kick a field goal, the game is out of reach already. Do you mean to tell me that their 4th string QB plucked from the scout team will lead a charge on this defense which is now just peaking? I'll give Cowan his due for last season, but he paid the price for it and will now acquire Alzheimer's at age 30. This Osaar Rashaan scrub has no idea what he is in for. And let's not bring up their 30 year old Mormon QB, who might be even worse. The fact that they scored 13 last year was a miracle, and I don't expect them to reach that this year.

Other events surrounding this weekend are the possible departure of Karl Dorrell and hiring of Norm Chow, Mike Leach, Bill Cowher, Mike Price, Vince Lombardi, Chris Peterson, Tom Landry, or Bill Walsh to take over the "prestigious" and "tradition-rich" UCLA football program. This may be the end of Krazy Karl as we know it, but we all need to stay focused on what is important this weekend, which is taking back Los Angeles and reminding everyone who the best football program in America really is. While most Bruin fans say they don't care about this weekend's game, the reality is that every one of them does.

I don't think Pete Carroll has ever been more jacked up for a football game in his life. Not even when trying to win a 3rd straight national championship or trying to prove all the NFL doubters wrong. Last season's stunning loss was probably more surprising than this season's loss to Stanford. Carroll marched right up to his office and watched film and waited.... a year. Well, it has finally arrived and I know that Coach Carroll will take no prisoners this weekend. 13-9 will officially become a useless phrase on Saturday night when there won't be enough training tables for all the Bruin injuries. We should all be confident that our stout defense and emerging offense will bring their best game this Saturday.

Fight On! Fuck the Bruins!

R.I.P. Sean Taylor

Washington Redskins safety and former University of Miami star, Sean Taylor, has died from injuries sustained after getting shot on Sunday night. Taylor was shot in the femoral artery after an attempted burglary at his home. Taylor was an All-American at the U and was widely regarded as one of the fiercest hitters in the NFL. It's a damn shame Taylor is gone. Our thoughts, prayers and condolences go out to Taylor's family.

In 5 Days...

Hate Week has officially started here at USC Sports Talk. Some call it Troy Week, Rivalry Week or the Battle for Los Angeles, but we here at USC Sports Talk call it Hate Week. We fucking hate UCLA. Maybe I'm not speaking for the group, but I sincerely HATE UCLA. Back in high school I had thoughts about attending that institution. I applied. I was accepted. But I chose USC and now I loathe anything powder blue. We've been waiting for this game for a long time, and it's fast approaching. Patrick Cowan's neck and jaw still crack every time he chews, courtesy of Mr. Rey Maualuga. Pete Carroll still wakes up in a cold sweat after the abomination that happened last season, but rest assured all of you Westwood pieces of dog shit, USC will be ready this Saturday... ready to fuck up the Bruins. The sharks are circling around the Coliseum, and they smell blood already.

The Massacre

The Massacre is less that 8 days away ladies and gentlemen. Here's a preview of what fucla fans can look forward to next Saturday.

The man is only getting warmed up...

Osaar Rasshan looks like he will get his second start of the season for the bruins today against Oregon, in place of the injured Ben Olson. UC Los Angeles fans may not even want to travel to the Coliseum next Saturday if this is the guy they plan to start under center against the Trojans...

Fight On!

Tigers Tamed in Triple Overtime

Darren McFadden and the Arkansas Razorbacks gave everyone something else to be thankful for this holiday season. The Hogs defeated Les Miles and LSU at Tiger Stadium in a hard-fought triple overtime game.

LSU has been winning ugly all season long, pulling out close wins week after week. The former #1 ranked team in the country allowed McFadden to rip off 205 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns, also throwing for a touchdown. LSU's "dominating" defense allowed the Razorbacks to rip off 384 yards rushing.

Hopefully this loss brings as much joy to everyone as it has myself and the USC Sports Talk family.

Stay tunned for a weekend wrap-up and select words from RG3

Happy Holidays

Derozan & Miller Sign

Demar Derozan, the #2 ranked player in the country, and Percy "Romeo" Miller officially became Trojans Monday evening when they signed their letters of intent at a press conference in Beverly Hills.

Here's the highlight video that was shown during the press conference. The video showcases what an exceptional talent we are getting in Demar Derozan.

The Trojans also received a letter of intent from Top-20 JUCO PG Donte Smith from Pomona, CA. Coach Floyd and the Trojan coaching staff are still waiting to year from SG Malik Story from Oak's Hill Academy, formerly of Artesia High, and PF Leonard Washington from Lake Charles, LA.

Shawne Merriman Got OWNED

I used to be a big fan of Shawne "Lights Out" Merriman. That guy was a beast even though he took steroids (allegedly), key word being "was." Merriman got fucking pancaked by Maurice Jones-Drew this past Sunday during the Chargers-Jaguars game. When I say "pancaked," I mean "fucked-up." Whatever heart and intensity Merriman had showed before was completely nullified by this play. Anyone who gets bitched like that doesn't deserve any credit, especially if they're blocked by a short, piece of shit Bruin.

Upset brewing in Arizona, Dixon hurt

Another #2 is in danger of falling down in Tuscon. Not only does Oregon trail 31-14 at the half, but their Heisman contender at QB is out for the game after re-injuring his knee. I am just leaving work to catch the 2nd half. Stay tuned, because if Oregon fails to mount a comeback, the stakes for the USC vs. ASU game will go way up.

Fight On!

Weekend Recap

USC 24 - Cal 17

The USC Trojans fought the rain, the Cal Bears and the rest of the hippies up north en route to a victory this past weekend. Chauncey "The First President" Washington wrecked the Cal defense and finished with a career best 220 yards rushing and 1 TD. The rain made for a sloppy game, but the Trojans were able to hang on to the lead and gave another reason for Jeff Tedford to put a gun to his temple after one of the most disappointing seasons of his career. Me-sean Jackson remained a douche and finished with 61 yards receiving and was a non-factor. The victory gives the Trojans the possibility of going to the Rose Bowl if they can beat ASU on Thanksgiving Day in a few weeks. There's also the bi-annual rape of the Bruins at the Coliseum to look forward to on December 1st.

Illinois 28 Ohio St. 21
The Buckeyes were "Juiced" on Saturday at the Horseshoe by the Fighting Illini. Juice Williams is a favorite here at USC Sports Talk and he gutted Ohio St. with 4 TDs in an impressive performance to take down the No. 1 team in the land. It was nice to see Ron Zook emotional after the victory during the post-game interview. That guy is a class act, a great coach and a decent human being. Kudos to Zook and the rest of the Fighting Illini.

There were a lot of other games this weekend, but no one gives a shit about any of them. Michigan is still a joke, Miami got shutout in their last game at the Orange Bowl and Mark Mangino is still a fat piece of shit.

In other news, OJ Mayo had his regular season debut for the Trojans at home against the mighty Mercer Bears... and we lost. Mayo finished with 32 points but the team looked out of sync and lost at times. I really hope Floyd can set the team right once everyone gets healthy, but we shall see.

I know we've been lagging lately with posts and updates, but we're all students and midterms are shitty. We'll get back into rhythm soon. Until then, "Jagger Bombs!"

As students, fans and alumni prepare for the annual trek up north for the USC v. UC Berkeley game, lets take a moment to reflect on last years contest. More importantly, lets reflect on "the play." The play that has made Kevin Ellison a fan favorite and YouTube legend. The play that has DeSean Jackson shivering at night. The play that has set the stage for how physical the game on Saturday will be.

The Play

Beat the Bears!

Patrick Johnson Update

Confusion surrounds the recruitment of the nations #1 ranked cornerback prospect, Patrick Johnson. The 6’1” 193lb senior from Ely High School in Pompano, FL has been adamant that he is unwavering on his verbal commitment to The U. recently quoted Johnson sending out this message in response to message board rumors that he had decommitted from Miami…
"Just stay tuned. You'll find out when I start (school) Jan. 7 at the University of Miami."

While reaffirming his verbal commitment to Miami, Johnson also praises LSU, which he officially visited a couple weeks ago, and maintains that he is very interested in the Trojans. Johnson has made plans to officially visit USC in 3 weeks when the Trojans unleash hell on the lowly bruins in the Coliseum. This will be Johnson's second visit to SC, as he unofficially visited during the summer when he participated dominated USC's Rising Star camp. had this to say about Johnson after his performance during the Rising Star camp...

Johnson's recovery speed also makes him special. In fact, he's so good in this area that it almost seems like he tricks the quarterback and receiver into thinking they have an open play, but then closes on the ball so fast that an incompletion or turnover occurs.
A defensive back that creates turnovers? Now there's a concept.

A commitment form Patrick Johnson would be a huge steal for the Trojans. Carroll and his assistant coaches are going to have to put on there game faces and put on a show for Johnson if they wish to steal him form the Canes.

Fight On!
