Paul Oberjuerge wrote an article for the sbsun titled Bruins can't hold our attention which I found through the topix links on the left of this site. I expected to read something about UCLA football living in the shadow of usc, and about the poor fan attendance on Saturday, and I right, but he also wrote something that shocked me and forced me to email him a response. He wrote (emphasis mine):USC does just about everything "football" better than do the Bruins.
The Coliseum is a better place to watch a game. Electric atmosphere, bigger crowds.
USC plays a more interesting schedule. Unless you prefer Utah and Rice over Arkansas and Nebraska.
USC's band is better, its song girls nationally celebrated. It has the white horse; the Bruins have two kids in bear suits.
Wow. In response I wrote:"USC's band is better," sure, if you prefer putting down instruments so as to booty dance instead of marching creative and well executed drill (google: usc crotch grabbing). Although I guess it is a pleasure whenever USC's band puts down their instruments, because it's hard to listen to the blaring honking noise that comes out (see: http://youtube.com/watch?v=StyHKCK3QVs). Maybe you think they're better because they are blatantly arrogant, labeling themselves the greatest marching band in the history of the universe (google: usc marching band arrogant, a juxtaposition to ucla marching band arrogant, which loads no relevant pages). Whatever it is, it's obvious you've got some red shades on (and apparently mustard yellow earplugs) because no one who knows anything about college marching bands would think that USC's band is anything more than a high school band "marching" on a college football field.
What a ridiculous statement he made, I can't begin to imagine how he can justify it. I eagerly await any kind of rebuttal from this obvious shill.
