    were this awful?

    Sure, sure they would give their eye teeth to be 8-4 but the bruins thought they had the answer with Chip Kelly, heck, even I was nervous considering our coach. But, now, they have a Has-been and we have a Never-was......wtf? The hot bed of recruiting for the entire conference and they have a lazy ass coach and we have a idiot. ( yeah, that was a personal attack, CH is a ass-kissing idiot)

    Gallows humor with our cross town ruins, we both stink.

    Hackett beat them 2 out of 3 years. So they must have sucked too in those years.

    USC. In time, I think Kelly will get it right - if he still cares, that is

    One poster has been predicting the collapse of California football for how long now? 8-10 years? One poster has got this right time and time again.

    One poster has laid this out by nut and bolt, line by line. Who has been the only one insightful enough to have called this years ago?

    Scoreboard, baby.

    And there is our problem.

    Losing again to Notre Dame with no end in sight. Being crushed by a "decent" Ducks team at home no less to a game that is directly attributable to poor coaching. But hey beating up on the lower caste of our weak conference is acceptable to fans as yourself is exactly why we hire a Helton to start with and why we continue to settle for him.

    We will own the Las Vegas bowl.

    If ucla was 8-4 and ranked in the top 25, I doubt they would call themselves awful

    You guys keep making the case why we're in this mess. So now we should have the same aspirations as ucla football? The only thing I can compare it to is USC basketball vs ucla basketball aspirations, they fired a coach that took them to consecutive Sweet 16 appearances because that was not good enough. We would erect a statue.

    No, let me be clear, after last season and Helton's assurances about penalties, smart, tough football for this season, 8-4 is not nearly good enough considering who he beat and how he lost.

    as I recall....the coach did not catch the blame....neither did the administration. Jess Hill got kicked upstairs to be AD....most people were angry at ucly....since they snitched off USC after being caught themselves......

    of course ucly coach Red Sanders had died in the motel with the hooker....so they did need a new one.

    USC rallied back in 1959....winning the first 8 before being upset by hapless ucly and then phoning it in against Notre Dame in frozen Sour Bend.....8-2 was not enough to keep coach Don Clark, who went into the laundry business.
