fucla may be a season changing game for the Trojans. I know it's early and USC is still only (2-3) in the Pac-10, but more importantly, they now have some confidence going into the final stretch of the season. This team was able to suck it up and grind out a win, something it failed to do in their losses to Kansas and Memphis. Even more glorious is the fact that we were able to beat those hated fucla ruins.
An embarrasing effort on the part of our Bruins today. USC looked like the poised team down the stretch, and we looked horrible. We had a 6-7 point lead and all of the sudden our shot selection became atrocious. We were just jacking stuff up and nobody stepped up. Love, Collison, and Shipp cannot do it all. Westbrook, Keefe, Aboya, etc have got to step us offensively and contribute, or this is gonna happen again. USC wanted it more, congrats to them.Once again, congratulations to Coach Floyd and the Trojans for this hard fought win. USC hits the road again next week for games at the Oregon schools, so let's stay behind the team and cheer them on all the way to the end.

I recently had an opportunity to sit down with Les Miles as he arrived in New Orleans for LSU's upcoming game against Ohio St. Here's the transcript of the USC Sports Talk EXCLUSIVE interview with Coach Miles himself:
RG3: Thank you, Coach Miles for taking the time to sit down with me. I know you're busy preparing your team for your upcoming arbitrarily arranged game.
Les: No problem. Anything for a fan.
RG3: Who the fuck said I was a fan? Anyways, is your team prepared for this game?
Les: My team is ready. My DAMN strong team is ready for this game. Hell, we come from the SEC, the best conference in the nation.
RG3: Don't you think that LSU was lucky to get into this bowl game considering you lost TWO games and you lost late to a mediocre Arkansas team?
Les: Hold on now, my team is undefeated in regulation. We lost two triple-overtime games and we played in the hardest conference...
RG3: Undeafeted? WTF? You lost two games.
Les: Yeah, but not in regulation.
RG3: But you LOST two games. Those games went down as losses.
Les: All I know is that my team is undefeated in regulation.
RG3: Well then sir, you are a fucking idiot. Now please answer me this, what's up with all the fuss you caused with the alleged Michigan job?
Les: Well, my alma mater came calling and I was looking forward to coaching there but like I said, I have a DAMN strong team here.
RG3: You were a real asshole during the press conference you called before the SEC championship game. Why do you come off as such a douche?
Les: You see, I don't like rumors spread about me. I have a DAMN strong team and we're just trying to win.
RG3: You didn't answer my question, why are you such a fucking asshole?
Les: Well, I guess it's because I lick so much ass. Always have, since I was very little. You are what you eat, right?... haha
RG3: Now coach, I heard that you like golden showers? Is this true?
Les: Yes! I fucking love them. I like that warm feeling you get when you're showering in piss. It makes my nipples so hard!
RG3: That's fucking gross. You're a sick man. Anyways, I have better shit to do than to listen to you ramble on. I just wanted to tell you that your team is a FRAUD and that everyone hates you for being such a narcissistic prick. Eat shit.
Les: Geaux Tigers!
RG3: Geaux FUCK yourself.
After that, I punched Coach Miles in the face and he left the room like a whipped dog. I had never felt so good in my life after hitting that asswipe. All I can say is FUCK Les Miles.
Gotta love this guys confidence. With the talent at running back and the continued development of our young receivers, our offense should be explosive next season.

Several big name recruits made their college choices official today on the big stage. Rivals #1 CB prospect Patrick Johnson verbally "committed" to LSU and 4-star receiver Deion Walker verbally committed to Notre Dame.

USC dominated the Granddaddy of 'Em All and wrecked an outmatched Illinois team. We finally got to see the team that we had all hoped USC could become back in August. The game was never in question and it was basically over when the plane that the Fightin' Illini were traveling in touched down at LAX. John David Booty capped his career at USC with 255 yards passing and 3 TD's in his final appearance with the Trojans. Hell, even our neighbor Garrett Green threw a touchdown pass to Desmond Reed. I had forgotten USC had that kind of trickeration in the playbook after sitting through a boring season of 5 yard slants and hitch passes. On the defensive side of the ball, Rey Maualuga proved his beastliness with an interception and 3 sacks in the first half. Even our shitty cornerbacks made plays with Terrell Thomas stripping the ball in the red zone and Cary Harris intercepting Juice Williams.
The entire team was making plays and USC made their case for being the best team in the country. Sure, we were playing against the Big Ten's 3rd place team and Illinois maybe didn't deserve the Rose Bowl bid, but the way USC has played lately, there's no question the Trojans are playing the best football right now. You can put Ohio St, Oklahoma or even those cunts from LSU on the other side of the ball and USC will still hit them in the mouth and win. There is no playoff system in college football though, so we have to end the season with this Rose Bowl victory, but I'm glad USC took care of business.
USC ends this season on a high, although we all would have liked for another crystal ball to be heading to Heritage Hall. Nevertheless, USC finishes the Rose Bowl Champ, the Pac-10 Champ and gives Carroll a 5-1 record in BCS Bowls. We bid farewell to some key seniors, but with the top recruiting classes the last couple of years, USC should still be a dominant force for years to come. This season is at an end, but I'm sure we'll have plenty more to say about the season, the early entrants to the NFL draft and whatever random shit pops up. I leave you with some more images of today's game and a slighty modified quote from the movie Troy:
"May the Gods keep the women in our beds, and the wolves in the SEC fans' beds."
Cheers to that.
