For Pete's Sake!

After Lane Kiffin was hired as Al Davis' bitch to be coach of the Oakland Raiders, USC had to replace not only its offensive coordinator, but its recruiting coordinator as well. To be the man in charge of keeping the Trojan talent cupboard stocked, head coach Pete Carroll turned to his son, Brennan, who was already the tight end coach.

Ok, we know Pete is a recruiting machine, so maybe it runs in the family. Then we saw this picture of ol' Brennan Carroll...


Uh, just what the fuck is he recruiting? High school football players? Not looking like that he's not! And did he steal those sunglasses off Lindsay Lohan and her friends...


Hey, if USC suddenly drops like a rock in the recruiting wars out there, don't blame the old man, blame Brennan "Ice Ice Baby" Carroll.

This came dangerously close to being an MZone Caption Contest. In fact, if you have something good for Brennan's pic above and want to share with the group, who are we to stop you?

Is Lindsay Lohan really Ann Margaret's granddaughter? If you ever pass by an old Ann Margaret movie, check it out from that perspective. Uncanny resemblance.

As for young Master Carroll, he's got some nice beach property to show you - if you're a recruit with the right time in the 40.

hey dipshit, i know it's a slow week and all, but if you did any research you would have seen it was from the 2006 salute to troy. it was done in jest (fyi that means for fun and laughs). jesus you midwesterners are so literal....

Sorry - it's time for my 'if I have to work on this beautiful Friday afternoon with not a cloud in the sky' classless post. (ear muffs, earmuffs)

Anon 10:01 - is he or is he not wearing fag glasses?!? As Dice Clay once said, you can't be bi. You either eat p**** or balls acros the chin! What surprises me is how he couldn't get that ass-packing flamer Jimmy Clausen to go to Southern Cal. Evidently they had a bitch spat and Jimmy's heading to ND to be Weis's Gimp.

I heard they will be bringing in Spencer from "The Hills" to be the qb coach.

But I guess it will buy you another ass-kicking of a Lloyd Carr coached Michigan squad.

Speaking of wins against your rivals...ahem.

Hey, I'm a tOSU fan who was just as heartbroken by UM's loss to USC as any maize and blue wearing fan, but don't go knocking on their team like that. At least they didn't lose to.....The Beavers? And the Bruins? Umm....WTF?

Now, I can picture a wolverine gagging on a nut and being stabbed by a Trojan sword (please, no condom jokes....or testicle jokes for that matter), but honestly; a Trojan being smacked around by a beaver? Can you picture that?

Wait....that doesn't sound very kosher either. Erm....forget what I just said.

Seriously though; bashing isn’t cool on either side. And for the record, I have never badmouthed a UM fan.

Context ladies context...As posted this was part of a preseason skit at a booster BBQ...(scoreboard)...

Too bad all you closet trannies in the midwest are so bent because you envy the look...(scorboard)...

BTW, it's 80 deg here today...(scoreboard)...

Final question...is it worse losing to Oregon St and ucla or getting hammered by a team that lost to Oregon St and ucla?...(scoreboard)...

"is it worse losing to Oregon St and ucla or getting hammered by a team that lost to Oregon St and ucla?...(scoreboard)"

what is worse is to spend the offseason trolling the blog comment boards of a team that you beat, who isn't even in your conference...

That last tag about "while it's 80 degrees outside" to your earlier post made me laugh, Anon.

Just playing along boys...I took full advantadge of the 80 deg weather today...

I love this blog...It's one of the few honest and literate places you can have some fun with college football...

Thanks for it all...

Is it really "trolling" if you're talking shit about a team that embarrassed you on national television, and fans of said team show up to defend their school? I'd say no.

Also, how overrated was the Big Ten this year? The answer: Pretty fucking overrated.

Mr. B. said...

I hate USC, but I find the "trolling" accusation weak in the extreme. If you make a post about a team that smoked you in a BCS Bowl, expect their fans to make you hear about it. Parody does not exist in a vacuum.

Still, love the website, fellas. Keep it going.

Erik said...

Eh, like it matter. My dog could recruit insane talent to U$C. And I don't even have a dog.

Anon6:02 - I was just returning the ribbing. Good to hear you took advantage of the weather.

Mr.B - Your objection is noted. Perhaps my word choice was less than accurate.

Still, I do find it funny that there is a constant flux of fans of teams who BEAT US that spend so much energy policing our team's blogs for anything they find objectionable, so that they might point out the timeless gems such as "the big ten is overrated". Last thing on my mind is to show up at Penn State boards and gloat about the "QB demolition derby" we pulled on them, or the I-don't-know-how-many straight wins we have over them in a row.

Personally I could find ways to better enjoy my time on top.

Anon7:20 - A truly original retort. Glad to see that the seminar on wittiness is paying off.

What is funnier than the big ten being overrated, and two of its teams getting a shot at going to the MNC, is the fact that USC (a team that many, including myself, might have been argued to have had the talent capable of beating florida-given a playoff) got locked out of any opportunity at a MNC due to those 2 losses to not so great teams. Leading to, from the sounds of it, many long nights of your silently crying yourself to sleep, thinking about what could have been...

Maybe that is where your anger is coming from. Either that or you didn't get hugged enough as a kid... (or was it too much?)

Regardless of your personal issues, we might have been overrated (although I prefer "just didn't show up") but at least we got a shot at the prize. Enjoy. :)

Primo said...

Actually, I love this blog and read it pretty frequently.

Just had to defend my Trojans, that's all. :)

Looks like Notre Dame is winning some head-to-head battles with UM so far in recruiting for 08. Can't let that happen...
