Football/basketball: The latest on expansion

It appears Texas, Texas Tech, Oklahoma State and Oklahoma are a lock to join the Pac-10 next week. Texas A&M is the only uncertainty. Stay tuned.

    Great to see Texas in there but Oklahoma and Oklahoma State and Texss Tech should go to the SEC

    All of the other 15 teams can thank their lucky stars there is USC. We are too big for the Pac 10. The only reason this expansion can happen is because of us. If we said No it can’t happen. The newest 6 want in for the chance to play us – not you guys, not UW, not pucla, not not not.

    I hope once this new conference gets underway we decide to leave it. We will take Texas, Oklahoma and then ask Florida and Alabama and Notre Dame to join us. (Notre Dame would be included because our new super conference would own NBC). We would then leave the NCAA and start our own independent conference and be done with the 9 drawfs.

    SC is so great they should just go independent like ND. They are so far superior and won’t be affected by NCAA penalties. Why should they continue to be dragged down by others? They play by their own rules, have for 60 years and will continue to regardless of what the NCAA has said or will say in the future. The only thing that can stop sc is itself. Kiffen is a great coach, he is the greatest recruiter ever. sc will always be great. Can’t wait to see what happens the next 3/4 years. Should be great theatre!
    Reality of the situation has not set in yet…the bandwagon has left south central la.
    They gone!

    I was prepared to leave this board about 1 year ago but now I am glad I stayed. As long as the lies continue on this board, you can count on my presence. As long as the gloating and the arrogance continue I will be reminding you your vanity is empty. You are legends in your own mind. You haven’t accomplished anything significant in over 50 years and now it will take you that long again.

    Troll alert! Now with no hope of a post season we will be seeing alot more of our friend, definatly worth it!

  • BlueNGold

    Tell the truth, moron- you keep trolling this blog because you have nothing else going on in your life to occupy your time.

  • MoreNCsarecoming

    BlueNGold – I am attempting to keep up with the 15 posts misterpeabody put on SF Gate yesterday. However since he is on ignore I can’t read any of them. LOL.

    The only saving grace for your program with an expanded program is that you haven’t played many of the 6 projected teams. If A&M decides not to join the conference then you have played exactly one and only one of those teams in the past 7 years.

    Of course when you get trashed, humiliated and destroyed 45-31 on national TV it doesn’t help. BTW I called the score of that game perfectly.

  • Larry

    YAWN!! Wake me up when Moron is done. Blah, Blah, Blah who cares what you have to say. Blah, Blah, U$C, Blah, Blah, Pete Carroll, Blah, blah…

  • Larry

    Moron, here’s .50 cents, call somebody who cares.

    Texas is really the only one that matters. The Pac needs an A+ team now that SC has been relegated to the second division. It’ll need the cache of Oklahoma too once Lane and Ed’s antics get SC the death penalty.

    I’m loving Pete and Reggie in all this. Their reputations aren’t all that tarnished (and I doubt they’d care if they were), and they made out like bandits. Pete’s got millions, and Reggie lived in a penthouse, drove an Escalade and probably had prostitutes delivered to his door his entire time at SC. Score a big victory for both of them. And what should they care if SC is a flaming wreck now? They’re rich!

  • Bears

    UC Pac 10 basketball champs 2010 robbed of a 2004 and 2006 Pac 10 football championship by a school that cheats to win and has cheated to win for 60 years.
    The University of California has had a solid decade from 2000 on. By no means is anyone Cal related satisfied with this past decade, it was a solid step forward. A foundation for the future. Cal is hungry, Cal is building, and Cal is doing it right. The Bears need to keep chipping away and the stars are aligning for that to happen. We will see.
    Love that sc people come to a Cal blog to spout propaganda. Keep it coming!!!! Great theatre.

    Pastor Rick spoke about humility today. Most of you should have been there.

    I hope these new schools don’t permit steroid use like this:

    The ANG really needs to get with it on technology and add the “ignore user” feature like SFgate. Then anyone can click ignore on Moren/Amy/Dwarfs and you’d end up getting a better discussion, more clicks and less crap.

  • Davidson

    It’s mind-boggling. Everything that he says can be directed at himself…basically making him the ideal troll if he isn’t being serious…but then he’s been doing this for years, going on a decade…which makes it equally mind-boggling.

    If it’s actually for real…then his stupidity is beyond measure…which is also mind-boggling…
