Why do people on BOL think I'm an idiot?
This post was edited by Scott Schrader 19 months ago
Cool, now fuck off.
I don't know what's worse, fans who want to think their team is the best or gloating Bama fans over here to rub salt in the wound. Get off your soap box.
SEC SEC SEC. So who's arrogant again? Way to take the i told you so approach.
Gotta love how this thread is at +3. This dude probably was over on his team's board and banded together a group of Bama Internet warriors to come over here and up-vote his thread.
I actually like Nick Saban and his Bama team, but they sure have some losers in their fanbase.
I was wondering about the +3 as well. I also like watching Bama play, but I don't like when assholes show up to make things worse.
You're actually wrong about that. We all have some fans that like to run off at the mouth but most of us Bama fans take pride in having class and representing our university well. This guy is obvisiously an idiot that's full of himself and what y'all give him he deserves. And yes he did come over to BOL and mention this post and most said he was a dumb ass for doing it. More than likely it's some young punk that doesn't know shit about football. USC has great players, I for one do not like their coach but that's my opinion. Depth is what hurt them yesterday plain and simple. We have been through scholarship losses and that's where it hurts you the most in the second half or when injuries happen. You guys will be back for sure with the way you're recruiting and I hope we play someday. It will be a hell of a game. Good luck on your season. Roll Tide and stay classy Bama.
Cool, pat yourself on the back. Football is all you have...we bury you in every other measurable a university can be graded on.
One game does not a season make. But you know that, you're simply nothing more than an ignorant troll with zero intellect.

Thank you for the extremely classy post. I've got no problem with Saban tbh, and if USC can't win it I would much rather Bama add another title then see Les Miles get another. Fight On to the Tide, and good luck the rest of the way, you guys definitely look head and shoulders above anyone else....
Oh yes, class....like the bama fan who exposed his junk, and the tide gang that cheered him on?
Let's not forget poisoning trees.
So 2 people represents our university as a whole? 1 was drunk as hell on bourbon street and the other just an Fing idiot that retalliated for auburn messing with coach Bryant's statue and Sabans house. Buddy I'm sure you have some fans that's done some crazy shit as well.
Nice post. Since non-Bama fans can't post on BOL, I'm usually just exposed to the fans on the Blue Board, and while there are some good ones, many are like the OP here. Those are the losers I had in mind, not someone like you. Probably wasn't a wise idea though - to be thinking of tBB posters - because last night we had the unfortunate pleasure of being greeted by those two FSU clowns who are literally on that board 24/7 (pun intended). Obviously those two, with their 200,000 posts, are nothing like most FSU fans/grads I know, so that place seems to bring out the ugly.
Can't believe the OP actually petitioned for up-votes over on your site - I honestly just posted that to make fun of him, without thinking it was really going to be the case. That's more pathetic than coming over here to post his garbage in general.
I wish all fans of every team were like you.
It would make message boards interaction between rival team's fans much more interesting and fun.
I think SC is on the right track in the long run, and I think what hurt SC last night was a combination of complacency due to buying into the offseason hype (one of the TEs even said the team expected the game would be handed to them) and the lack of depth.
The lack of depth could be overcome if the team was practicing and playing with a real chip on their shoulder, and you can win some games that you probably shouldn't have due to a lackluster attitude if you have enough talent and depth.
But a lack of depth and an attitude of entitlement is a deadly combo.
hope that we see you guys in a National Title game soon. Maybe this year if SC can get things turned around over the course of the season and some of these inexperienced guys who have gotten thrown into the fire grow up. That's a tall order, and probably won't happen, but I won't give up hope until there is no possibility anymore.
Good luck to your team and please come by to post on this board anytime. It would be great to have a smart Bama fan to have reasonable, respectful conversations with.
On behalf of the Bama fan base, I apologize for the OP's post, as that is not the general consensus on BOL. We all have that 1% and the OP repersents it for us. He is getting downvoted on BOL for ignorant post. I don't think many Bama fans care for Kiffen, but that is in large part due to him being at UT and some things that happened when he was there, not hatred for USC. I think it's great for college football when traditional powers like Bama, USC, and ND are in the hunt for a NC. I would love nothing more than a Bama vs USC championship game, that would be great for the game, a lot of tradition, and power vs power matchup, and I think most Bama fans feel that way. Just my opinion but I think the no contact in practice is what really hurt USC in this game, combined with lack of depth. We had some entitlement issues in 2010, and had some inexperienced guys playing, and it cost us dearly, but the team will learn from it. Kiffen is bringing in major talent, and Monte is a defensive mastermind, USC will be fine. Good luck with the rest of season, and I hope you shut Oregon down!

The price of victory is high, but so are the rewards.
Welcome to our board.
Great post. As I said to BAMAFEVER, I wish all visiting fans were like you guys.
I used the example of Bama in 2010 in a thread last night as a team with similar entitlement issues to what this USC team has.
Both teams had accomplished great things in the previous year- Bama had won a NC and USC had come roaring back from being written off for dead to showing they could play with anyone and that the program was alive and well despite sanctions.
In both cases, the players started to believe the hype, which is only natural. Until you have been through it and realize that hype doesn't actually win you any games, it's hard not to subconsciously be affected by the media and everyone in your life telling you how great you are.
I know that Nick Saban is the coach in CFB that Lane holds in a higher regard than anyone else, so I hope he takes a very close look at how Saban has learned to fight against entitlement in his players. Whatever Saban is doing this year, it is working. Your team looks hungry, focused and ruthless (in a good way). They never let up and step on the opponent's throats when they have them down.
Please drop by and post anytime. You will be welcomed and treated well. We've got a number of regulars who are fans of some of our biggest rivals (ND, UCLA, tOSU) that post frequently on the board, as well as an LSU fan that come by from time to time. All of those guys are held in high regard and are treated the same way USC fans are.
People like you make any board more interesting, so come by anytime.
Good luck to Bama this year. Hope to see an epic USC-Bama NC game soon.
Although, the season is by no means over for USC, it is in terms of that National Title run. I have always said USC needs to worry about winning the PAC12 South first then the PAC12.
And then if they get that far, they have 5 weeks of practice to focus on whatever SEC team they would play in the National title game.
Unfinished business will remain unfinished. Maybe next year
Pathetic. You lost, deal with it. I did none of those things your mentioned so I have no reason to be apologetic. Your team could have run the table if they could have stayed healthy but those are the breaks. You are thin because of former players cheating but your current team has to pay for it. Anyway, that's life, sometimes it sucks. Your players seem to have plenty of fight left in them and that is what you need. You have a tough road ahead. I think you will have to beat Oregon twice to win the PAC 12 and good luck with that. I think your match up with them better than Stanford but your D is gonna be gassed if you let them stay on the field. Anyway, good luck the rest of the way to everyone except this moron I responded to.
L- you know I'm your biggest fan, but every fanbase has its lunatic fringe.
I don't think it's fair to paint the entire Bama fanbase with the t-bag or tree poisoner brush.
My darling, if they could only claim those few degenerates, I wouldn't comment.....but their Walmart fans outnumber the good guys. Family brawls/shooting over football and loutish behavior rule. We all have thuggish fans, they just have a greater percentage.
Attend a few SEC games...they brag about their game day experience, but they use it as an excuse to act like drunken fools.

Yes, I still think we can hang with bama. But make no mistake, bama and USC will be going toe to toe for the next 10 yrs with USC winning 7 of 10
