BeatSC.com: Dedicated to the HATRED of all things trOJan

VIRGINIA FLIMS(Y)

You’ve Come A Long Way, Baby (but you still have a long way to go) —  “#7″ UCLA wins their opener 28-20, but the Offense’s growth has been stunted, and it takes a smoking-hot 3-Touchdown 2nd quarter spurt BY THE DEFENSE to vaporize the Cavaliers

 When your Defense scores more points than your Offense, you know you’ve got issues.  When they score THREE TIMES AS MANY, your Offensive Coordinator better get to work.  The vaunted Bruin Offense and Heisman Hopeful QB Brett Hundley looked anything but explosive on Saturday in Charlottesville, getting shut out until late in the 3rd quarter, managing only 1 TD (a short QB Draw) for the whole game, and being unable to move the chains in crunch time to put the game on ice.  The Receivers dropped 5 balls, the Field Goal Kicker missed a 42-yard try, the Running Backs couldn’t break free, and the Offensive Line couldn’t open holes or protect Hundley in the pocket.  If not for a flurry of 3 straight TD’s by the Defense in the 2nd quarter, and a Defensive stop highlighted by a Myles Jack coverage play, the Bruins would have gotten upset (or at least taken to OT) by a 21-point underdog, and might have relinquished their spot in the National Rankings’ Top Ten.

The excuse will be that the Bruins are missing their Starting Center Jake Brendel with an injury.  Ok, but there was supposed to be enough depth this year to absorb that loss.  Apparently, there wasn’t.  Hundley was pressured all day by extra rushers, and Starting Bruin Running Back Jordon James gained a total of THREE YARDS on 5 carries.  He was replaced by Steven Manfro who promptly dropped two passes.  He was replaced by Paul Perkins, who may have earned an ascension up the depth chart by amassing 80 yards on 16 carries.  It is possible that the Coaching Staff made adjustments, as there WAS a little more running room later in the game.  But when the Bruins had the lead with time running out, they failed to run for the First Downs that would have put the game out of reach.

Despite pressure, Hundley still managed to pass for 242 yards, going 20/33, and don’t forget the 5 drops.  But when you consider the Bruins also amassed 12 penalties for 87 yards — more than 4 times more penalty yards than Virginia — Hundley’s numbers were not good enough to put the Cavaliers away.  Instead, Continue Reading »

CLOWN COLLEGE COACH DEVELOPING “STERLING” REPUTATION

U$C Head Coach Steve Sarkissian gets called out by one of his Black players for being a Racist and treating him like a slave

Excuse me… Coach Sarkissian — Is it okay if I bring a Black person to one of your games?

Okay, so let me get this straight — ESPN announces that u$c is a “clown college,” and THEN, AFTER THAT, a trojan Football player Tweets that his Head Coach is a Racist?  Wow.  I don’t know what is lower than “clown college,” but whatever it is, it is now defined by the University of Southern Cal.

Recently trojan Running Back Anthony Brown, who is Black, took a meeting with his Head Coach Steve Sarkissian.  Alledgedly, Sark jumped all over Brown, hurling F-bombs at him, and calling him a F*cking Coward just for entering the Coach’s office.  Brown has now QUIT THE TEAM, claiming that Sarkissian treated him like a slave, even disparaging his parents with racial overtones.  Brown Tweeted that he refuses to play for a Racist.

After this Tweet made it to National Media prominence, Sarkissian quickly went into full damage control mode.  Sark insists that he is not a Racist (just like Donald Sterling does), and that Brown’s claim is ridiculous.  Sark challenged the Media to come to campus and ask anyone in the Athletic Department whether Sarkissian is actually a Racist.  Oh Lord… If I could play some music here, it would be that classic  circus clown  theme song Continue Reading »

TROJAN IS FROWNING AFTER CROWNING, CUZ HE WAS CLOWNING ABOUT DROWNING

swm11 (272)js

Joshing about sloshing — Recently annointed “hero” and trojan Football player Josh Shaw is exposed for lying about diving off a balcony to save a 7-year old from drowning, prompting ESPN to declare u$c a “clown college”

Well, well, well… I believe it is time for all you soft-hearted trojan apologists who openly and publicly commended Josh Shaw for being a hero, to take one step forward and choke on some crow.  I got physically sick as so many so-called Bruins posted comments saluting the heroic efforts of trojan Footballer Josh Shaw, based on nothing more than HIS OWN CLAIMS that he sprained both his ankles when jumping off a second-story balcony to save his 7-year old nephew from drowning in a swimming pool.  How could you all be as gullible as trojan Head Coach Steve Sarkissian?

Ha!  New u$c mascot:  The Trojan Hoax.

After all these years of arrogant, selfish, inconsiderate, egotistical, narcissistic trojan players, coaches and fans always acting only in their OWN self-interest, why would you suddenly believe that one of them risked his own safety to save someone else?  Wasn’t it much more likely that he was FABRICATING the entire incident from scratch, just to earn publicity and glory?  Well, that’s exactly what this case turned out to be.

As soon as the story hit the National Media — because u$c fed the story to ESPN, etc. — calls came rolling in disputing and contradicting Shaw’s version of events.  So what happens then?  Does Shaw admit his disgusting lie?  Of course not.  SC never admits fault or shows remorse until backed completely into a corner, so help me O.J.  Instead of fessing up immediately, Shaw gets his sister Asia — the Mother of the 7-year old — to corroborate his story, adamantly insisting to the Press that Josh’s story is 100% accurate.  And this testimony was in spite of the fact that Asia was not even at the scene of the alleged incident.  So now we have TWO bald-faced liars… because today, the truth has come out, and Shaw has finally admitted to the World that his story was total bullish!t.

Maybe someone talked to the 7-year old?  What’s wrong, trojans — Couldn’t you COACH the kid to be convincing under cross-examination?

Or was it because of the OTHER SIDE of this still-developing story…

First of all, in Shaw’s confession, he refused to mention how he REALLY sprained both his ankles. He said it happened in a fall.  That’s it.  No circumstances revealed.  That secrecy, along with Shaw’s hiring of a prominent Defense Attorney, is making everyone wonder if the new allegations — of Shaw fleeing the scene of a burglary — are accurate.

At the same time when the injury occurred, a man fitting Shaw’s description — according to Shaw’s very own girlfriend — was seen shimmying down a pipe on the side of a building, forcing the Police to initiate a Burglary investigation. Continue Reading »

THE PETER PATTERN OF LITTLE CHEATS

Still Cheaty After All These Years — Pete Carroll adds another sanction to his growing family of violations, as he and his Seahawks are fined over $300,000 for being REPEAT OFFENDERS in the utilization of contact in offseason practice

As if anyone still needs for evidence to convince them of Pete Carroll’s complicity in U$C’s institutionalized climate of total disregard for the rules.

The Seattle Seahawks and specifically their Head Coach Pete Carroll have been busted yet again, this time to the tune of over $300,000, for repeating an NFL violation for which they had already been busted over a year ago.  The transgression involves having CONTACT in practices in the month of June.  Due to the abuse that NFL bodies are subjected to during the season, the NFL PLAYERS Association came to a collective bargaining agreement to ban contact in the off-season.  But does Pete Carroll give a f*ck about the health of his players, or the rules that are in place to protect them?  Of course not.  All he cares about is gaining a competitive advantage over the rest of the league, regardless of the rules he has to break to get it.

Obviously, Carroll has zero faith in his actual coaching ability to achieve success.  In his first stint in the NFL, his record was abysmal.  Then he was demoted to u$c, where he sucked until he started paying his players to attend, and started pumping them up with illegal steroids.  Then when his trojans were caught red-handed for having an institutional lack of compliance, he scurried back to the NFL, where he sucked again, until his Seahawks started breaking the rules and utilizing Carroll’s best friend, illegal steroids.  Seattle easily led the league in Steroid suspensions before they ever started winning.

The first time Carroll was busted for using contact during offseason practices, he feigned ignorance of the rules, just like he feigned ignorance about all his trojans receiving illegal benefits, illegal drugs, get-out-of-jail-free cards for legal issues, and get-out-of-class-free cards for all his academically-challenged non-student athletes.  What will he say THIS time — That he STILL didn’t know that contact in June was against the rules?

He just doesn’t care.  He has NEVER thought that the rules applied to him.  He is so arrogant that he blatantly defies the rules, and smiles smarmily when interrogated about it.  He never admitted fault at sc, and never showed remorse for the sorry state he left the program in when he bailed, just days before the NCAA delivered the death knell.  He will never change, because the public will continue to glorify him for his ill-gotten wins.  Too many people are just like him:  All they care about is the final score.  It’s all about who wins, and never about the slimy, BUSH-league way the wins are achieved.

This sad state of the Sports World is a shame, but it will make it THAT MUCH sweeter when Jim Mora wins, while doing it with Integrity.

THE STAR’LETTE LAKER

wsh09fb (21)p-twoThe Laker Girls double their dominance by adding UCLA Dance Team Star Nicolette to their squad, which already boasts UCLA Dance Team Star Lizzi

[NOTE:  This article includes 47 brand new UCLA Cheerleader photos following the brief text.]

Sincere congratulations go out today to former Bruin Dance-Teamer Nicolette, who has just been added to the prestigious Laker Girls.  As you probably know, hundreds of girls try out every year for the honor of donning the iconic Purple and Gold, so it is quite an accomplishment for our Blue and Gold Nicolette to have made it through this grueling competition.  But as you also probably know, Nicolette is entirely worthy, and raises the overall quality of the Laker Girls, with her striking looks and flawless dancing, just as Lizzi did when SHE succeeded in passing the audition previously.

Now here’s my only problem:  I’ve been a Laker fan since the 60′s, but I can’t force myself to root for ex-trojan and current Laker Nick Young, who is now one of the scoring leaders of the Lakers, and often gets to take (and usually miss) the clutch shots in crunch time.  I’m guessing the Coach calls a play for someone else to shoot, but Young chucks it up there himself anyway.  Clank.  Once a gunner, always a gunner.  Even with Kobe returning to health this season, I’m sure Young will remain a crucial element to the Lakers’ attack, and it will be almost impossible to root for the Lakers while hoping that Young is not involved in the outcome.  Alas… If only the Lakers had traded him away in a package deal for Kevin Love.  Instead, Continue Reading »

THE STARLET GETTER

Best'r Prim

 “A” is for Awesome — On All-Star night, it’s time to celebrate stars and starlets, and as your friendly neighborhood starlet-getter, I went and got you 45 more never-before-seen shots of some of the starlets from the UCLA Spirit Squad

On Tuesday night in Minnesota, the 85th Annual Major League Baseball Game was played, bringing out our National Pasttime’s Best in the World.  And when you’re talking “World’s Best” anything, that usually means more Bruins than trojans.  This event was no exception to that rule.  There were more than ten times more Bruins than trojans, because 10 x 0 = 0 and 1 > 0.  That’s right, not a single trojan was voted by fans onto either All-Star Team starting line-up, nor was any trojan selected by the Managers as a Reserve.  But the Bruins had 1 participant:  Future Hall of Famer Chase Utley of Philadelphia.  The former Bruin Star was voted in as the National League’s Starting 2nd Baseman.  This was Utley’s SIXTH trip to play in the All-Star Game.  Utley has also won a World Championship (in 2008), and he won the Silver Slugger Award 4 times in a row, including in 2007, when he hit a remarkable .332.  And of course, unlike trojan Mark McGwire, Utley never took steroids! The National League fans were NOT disappointed in their selection for Starting 2nd Baseman, as Utley delivered with an RBI Double in the 2nd Inning, and then got on base again in the 4th before being pulled for a pinch runner.  Unfortunately for Utley and the NL, his production was not enough to overcome Mike Trout and the American League, who ultimately prevailed 5-3, earning home field advantage for the American League team in the World Series  The L.A. Angels’ Trout was named MVP, after hitting an RBI Triple, and later an RBI Double that broke a tie, giving the AL the lead for good.  Trout also made a nice catch in Left Field. Meanwhile, Trout’s local counterpart — the Dodgers’ Yasiel Puig, stunk the place up.  After totally choking in the Home Run Derby the night before, not hitting a single Tater, Puig continued his pathetic streak on Tuesday night.  He batted three times, and STRUCK OUT ALL THREE TIMES.  Not only that, but he Continue Reading »

THEY CHOSE… WISELY

colo14bb (136)dd

LaVine, Adams, and Anderson reach the Holy Grail, as THREE Bruins get drafted in the FIRST ROUND of the NBA Draft, for the first time since 1979

They aren’t ready for the Pro’s.  They could have come back, and worked on their bodies and their games.  They could have had an epic, unforgettable, life-altering year challenging for a National Championship at UCLA this upcoming season.  They could have left a legacy, bringing UCLA back to Nationally Elite status.  Despite all of that, Zach LaVine, Jordan Adams, and Kyle Anderson decided to quit on UCLA and bail prematurely for the NBA… and it looks like that mutual decision was NOT as insane as I’d like to think.  All three of them did indeed get selected in the first round, somewhat validating their decisions.

Of course I have mixed emotions about them leaving.  I am angry, and wished they stayed.  However, it is best for UCLA if these Bruins are successful in The League, so I have no choice but to wish them well.  I have very little trouble rooting for Anderson, as he actually played for UCLA a year longer than anticipated. He could have left after last year if he wanted, but he came back and played with heart, coming closer to averaging a triple-double than anyone else in the entire nation.  And it looks like he earned some good karma, because he got picked with the last pick of the first round, by the World Champion San Antonio Spurs, who return the nucleus of their Title-Winning Team.  Only Boris Diaw is departing, and that opens up a perfect slot for Anderson to fill.  We may just be watching Kyle in next year’s Finals.

I’m a little less happy about Continue Reading »

THE REAL ROYALTY OF L.A.

Killer QueensThe L.A. Kings make the Stanley Cup Finals as local Hockey fans go nuts, but the actual Southland Regality resides in Westwood, where the Bruin Princesses RULE

I don’t care a lot about Hockey, because UCLA doesn’t play it, and because there are no Bruin Alumni competing in the NHL to root for, or any ex-trojans to root against (afaik).  But my Facebook page exploded tonight, and not just because of the 3.8 Earthquake that rocked Westwood tonight.  My FB news feed went berzerk because the Los Angeles Kings won their third straight Game 7 on the Road — an unprecedented feat — to reach the Stanley Cup Finals, where they will face the New York Rangers.  I am happy for my friends, but… I also have several “frenemies” who are raging King fans.  I have been rooting for the Kings since long before they switched colors from Purple and Gold, but now I abhor seeing some of these personal rivals — many of whom are die-hard trojan fans — get to celebrate.

So in spite of decades of rooting for the Kings, I suddenly find myself rooting against them.  That being said, I really don’t care all that much about Hockey any more, and I’m just using this occurrence as an excuse to post some more photos of the UCLA Spirit Squad, which I haven’t done in WAY too long. The Bruin Cheerleaders have been on my mind today, as it appears that they had their annual photo shoot today for their website for the upcoming year.  So I decided to share some photos of my own.  Below you will find 39 never-seen-before photos, Continue Reading »

AWESOME UCLA CHEERLEADER AUDITIONS? I’LL BE THE JUDGE OF THAT!

asu13fb (19)bThe 2014 UCLA Cheerleader Auditions were indeed an awesome success, if I do say so myself, as I was an Official Judge for both the Cheer Squad and Dance Team, and the two units will see a combined ELEVEN of your favorites return for another year of glory

One of my favorite days of the year — besides the annual beatdown of u$c on the gridiron –  is the annual UCLA Spirit Squad Auditions.  This year’s tryouts occurred yesterday — Sunday May 4th.  And May the Fourth be with you!  It was Star Wars Day, and it was definitely a War of Stars, as dozens of gorgeous, talented co-eds (and soon-to-be co-eds) competed for coveted spots on the prestigious UCLA Cheer Squad and Dance Team.

Last year I Judged the Dance Team Auditions;  This year I was a Judge for both Cheer Squad and Dance Team, and I had an amazingly fun time.  There were so many worthy candidates for both units, and the Selection Committee analyzed the participants in various categories, and based their final decisions on very specific criteria.

Once again, Continue Reading »

JUST GIVE ME THE DAMN BALL-PEEN HAMMER!

Wifebeater U — Yet another ex-trojan gets busted for violence against women, as Keyshawn Johnson gets arrested for domestic battery

Somewhere in a Nevada jail cell, O.J. Simpson is thinking:  “You should have finished the job!”  After all, it’s harder to get convicted if the complaining witness is too dead to testify.  Ex-U$C Wide Receiver and ESPN Analyst (maybe not for long) Keyshawn Johnson was thrown in jail last night for Domestic Battery.

Police were called to Johnson’s residence on a potential spousal abuse offense, and found that Johnson — the author of “Just Give Me the Damn Ball (The Fast Times and Hard Knocks of an NFL Rookie)” — and his ex-girlfriend had gotten into a physical fight.  Apparently, he gave her some hard knocks over the subject of MARRIAGE.  Keyshawn may be a trojan for life, but wasn’t interested in becoming a trojan for wife.

So he reportedly grabbed the woman’s cell phone, causing a gash to her head.  Johnson ADMITS smashing the phone, but like all indicted trojans, DENIES that he ever hit her.  How she got that gash in her head will evidently remain a mystery.

Johnson immediately posted bail and was quickly released, and this morning was seen at an AT&T Store — WITH HIS EX — supposedly buying her a new phone.  Some women never learn.  Or maybe some women never learn… how to live without NFL-contract bling.  It’s hard to have sympathy for someone who dates an arrogant prick ACCUSED OF HIRING A HITMAN TO MURDER HIS EX-WIFE — in the first place, let alone one who keeps dating him AFTER he goes to jail for an incident that leaves her with a gashed face.  But who knows — maybe she just wanted to get her phone replaced before she got the hell out of Dodge.

Based on the long history of violent trojans skating on their charges, I will assume that  Continue Reading »
