    Never had a problem with "Southern Cal." Heck, I bought a sweatshirt from the USC bookstore that said "Southern Cal" and that was in the early 90s.

    Only SEC people think "USC" means University of South Carolina. To fans of non-benighted regions of the country, USC means Southern California, and the Trojans who are a blue-blood program, and not some program with a minor profile like South Carolina.

    Keith Jackson called us "USC", "the University of Southern California" or "Southern California". His sidekick Bob Griese would say "Southern Cal".

    Lol at bumping this turd......

    Southern Cal’ is fine.

    So is ‘SC’

    I’ve been hearing people in SoCal saying it my whole life, Trojans and casual fans.

    Getting your panties in a bunch over this should make you an honorary Bruin.....if honor could be applied in that occurrence.

    Now, the REAL controversy is referring to California as "Cali."

    No actual native Californians I know ever called it "Cali." Cali is a city in Colombia!

    It’s a much newer phenomena and in my experience when it first started it was usually only the young and people who were from somewhere else trying to sound local.

    I still remember surfing Salt Creek in the mid-70s and hearing ‘nice wave, brah‘ and thinking wtf?
