Is it too early?
Great win in a (otherwise meaningless) rivalry game.... by a upperclassmen-heavy Bruin team directed by an actual living/breathing (but obese) Head Coach. The 62-33 score, while impressive, does not surpass the gravity or "complete & total" victory that the 50-0 demolition in 2011 that Trojans put on the Pac-12 Championship Game-bound Bruins (in their new fancy uniforms with white helmets...never to be seen again) USC will "repair the rot" and emerge from this "football sewer" we now find ourselves in. Maybe not next year....but hopefully rebuild the strong foundation that led to, and sustained USC's Football Greatness for decades.
I knew some dumbass would bring that 50-0 game up. Why don't you write the Pac 12 and ask them to put an asterisk next to the 2021 62-33 score in the record books. That way people can read the inscription that reads: *Hey, the 50-0 game won by the trogans tens years earlier was even more lopsided!
By the way, that 2011 Neuheisel-led UCLA team was for shit, and they were only bound for the Pac 12 title game because of sanctions to USC -- who were easily the best team in the conference.
If it was all class why was he penalized for “unsportsmanlike“ conduct??
Dorks. 70 years old and weak smack talking
Did you read what I wrote? DTR would not normally do something like that. But, here you have this special needs kid coming up DTR asking for an autograph. What else is DTR supposed to do?
Be honest, if DTR walks away, you know damn well there would be a whole plethora of Trojies crying how the UCLA qb snubbed a poor little USC kid.
The closest ref, after seeing DTR's genuine deed, politely asked DTR to go back to the bench. It was the other ref, from across the field, that threw the flag. He obviously did not understand the sentiment and the pure-ness of DTR's actions. Even the announcers thought it should go unpunished.
DTR was all-class yesterday. Willing to give that "special" USC kid an autograph. It was a real tender moment..Even took time during the game to do it, knowing that he may get a penalty. You could tell the refs didn't want flag him.
