I know we Bruins are in no (and I do mean no) position to talk shit about college football today. But I'm going to anyways. This afternoon was an embarrassment for our team, our students, and our university. My only consolation is it wasn't a Pac 10 game. Which is not much consolation.
And even though 'SC beat the shit out of their (actually ranked) opponent, I still feel the need to talk some shit. If you go to that article, you find out that 'SC was penalized at one point for "disconcerting offensive signals." What the fuck is that?? It's only like a 5 yard penalty, but I think the point here is they find the most amazing ways to cheat, on a consistent basis. Whether its the illegal shit that went down w Reggie Bush, or committing penalties no one even knew existed (or, you know, OJ killing people, and then being invited back to their practices), these people have no shame. Which, is ultimately, why 13-9 had to happen, because eventually good must always prevail over evil.
I'm angry and upset, but I take solace in the fact that I attend the finest public university on the face of the earth, with a phenomenal family of fellow Bruins, and we will live to fight another day. Shit, we could have bigger problems than losing a football game.
Like paying $40k to go to a piece of shit school.
