2011 Heisman Trophy Winner Matt Barkley Gets Arrogant.

Very proud day for the father of Arrogant Nation.  USC released another promo spot for ticket sales on this day where we can buy single game tickets.  Truth told, I am on the verge of starting to break shit over the continued rumor that Lane Kiffin, while admirably arrogant, is trying to defecate on our proud tradition by pulling out black helmets and alternate jerseys, most likely to avenge the loss of a prized recruit to Chip Kelly and the Technicolor Dreamcoats up in Oregon.  I can’t emphasize Oregon’s 9-16 record in bowls, 0 national champions or Heismans and severe lack of turning out NFL prospects as plenty of recruiting tools.  That and the fact THEY HAVEN’T HAD A BETTER RECRUITING CLASS THAN US IN I DON’T KNOW HOW LONG.

i know these are fake but i wanted to throw up in my mouth a little because it's monday anyway

But yeah, Kiff.  You’re right.  Black helmets will totally help.  Or having a field goal kicker.  Or sending Seal Team Six in to steal their douchey posterboards with pictures of donuts, Lee Corso, a goat and the Alps that they use to call plays.  Just saying.

Wait, what was I saying?

Oh yeah.  My main man 2011 Heisman Winner Matt Barkley was in this spot that kind of the film student version of the ESPN campaign they’ve been running since I was a child.  One, it’s cool to hear quarterbacks play call and know Pat Haden probably can still get it done.  The main reason I like this is because Matt is totally arrogant at the end and asks “who were those old guys”, and that won me over.  Not because I think he doesn’t know them.  Just because he sold that line like a used Honda at Cerritos.  He got hardcore arrogant.  It’s called method acting bitches.  If you want to be a cowboy in a movie, you go to the ranch and live the life.  If you wanna be arrogant, you read this blog, eat caviar and call people by whatever name you feel like, including you family and boss.  That’s what I am talking about.

While I enjoyed the ad, I want to suggest we use some of our 2 billion plus dollar endowment to buy a RED camera or something.  Video felt a little video like.  This is no condemnation of our video department, who are completely arrogant and awesome (I know, we’ve hunted bear together), but rather a suggestion that if we have the money to be considering black helmets (which better be made of kevlar because I demand Arrogant Nation try to destroy them before they hit the field), we have the money to buy my homies in A/V a state of the art RED camera.

    Uniform change is not going to happen. Especially not with the ones shown above… they have Adidas cleats!!! Obviously fake!

    What happened somebody on a forum did a mock-up of what the uniforms would look like in EA teambuilder – just google it and you’ll see.
    Anyways, the uniform change will likely not happen given the largely negative reaction it has gotten. Though I’ve heard they are switching to black socks now? Just rumors, I guess.

  3. Todd Marinovich

    Completely agree on alternate uniforms. We have tradition, we aren’t Oregon

  4. Video shot on a FLIP managed to become a commercial? Now THAT’S arrogant.

    As a member of our video department I’d be all for getting Reds. Except that theyre expensive and occasionally we get people that don’t know how to work cameras. But what would be more arrogant than giving a camera noob one of the most expensive cams on the market?

    MATT BARKLEY IS TRYING TO DO HIS JOB THE BEST CAN. IT AIN’T HIS FAULT. THE KID IS GROUNDED IN FAITH. HE ONE OF THE GOOD GUYS. HE IS PART OF THE TROJAN FAMILY 4 LIFE. HE GREW UP A TROJAN, HIS PARENTS ARE USC GRADUATES AND HE HAS GOT TWO SIBLINGS BEGINNING AT USC IN THE FALL OF 2011. WE WILL SEE WHAT HAPPENS AT END OF 2011 SEASON! MATT IS A PLAYMAKER AND GAMER AND JUST WANTS TO PLAY FOOTBALL THE GAME HE MOST LOVES.

  7. PATRICK AUDICK

    BARKLEY JUST WANTS TO PLAY FOOTBALL… HE JUST WANTS TO LEAD USC BACK TO ITS GLORY DAYS! HE IS A LEADER AND IS A FIRM BELIEVER IN JESUS CHRIST. PRAISE GOD!!! BARKLEY JUST WANTS TO LEAD BY EXAMPLE. HEWANTS TO WALK IN FAITH WITH HIS TEAMMATES. HONESTLY WE ALL NOW THAT MATT IS A GREAT KID. THAT IS THE REASON HE ENROLLED EARLY AT USC RATHER THAN REDSHIRTING. IF HE WANTED TO REDSHIRT, HE WOULD HAVE. MARK SANCHEZ HAS HELD HIS GROUND IN THE NFL AND EVEN EARNED HIS DEGREE FROM USC IN 4 YEARS. MR.BARKLEY WAS A THE TOP RECRUIT IN COUNRY FOR CLASS OF 2009. HE COULD OF CHOSE ANYWHERE IN COUNTRY BUT HE WENT TO USC BECAUSE THAT BEST EMBODIES HIM BEST. HE HAS ENDURED THE WILL TO WIN . MATT IS A COMPETITOR HE LOVES TO ALWAYS COMPETE! HE WILL KEEP DOING SO UNTIL HE DECIDES ITS OF HIS BEST INTEREST TO DO ELSE WISE.
