Wrote this up last night. Still cannot get over the horse manure coming out of DG concerning the *&^% SC chant during (gasp!) basketball games against SC. I guess this shouldn't be a surprise because these are the same cheese eating surrender monkeys who this year changed "Beat SC" week to "blue and gold week," and have no problem celebrating a loss to USC as a true moral victory. These clowns are perfectly comfortable with this:
Also a poster from BRO (EarlWatson25) perfectly captures the rationale for how the letter from DG who seems to be comfortable with being second fiddle to SuC in football was - well just dumb:
Honestly, compared to many other schools.. our fan base is pretty classy. I can't imagine having a "F west virginia" or "F Orgeon" chant... because that would be classless. we don't hate our opponents. except $C. i don't know about any of you, but I freaking HATE $C and everything it stands for. So when it comes to $C, class goes out the window..
there's always an exception to a rule. and this is an exception. F-$-C.
if anyone is a real UCLA fan, they would know to expect this type of behavior (from both parties) at UCLA-$C games.
[B]ut frankly, "beat $C" is pathetic. as a hardcore fan, that just does not cut it for $C. until we come up with another chant that really gets under $C's skin, I'll most likely continue to chant F-$-C. I'm sorry, but "Beat $C" offends me.. it's just pathetic.
Well it sure looks like the tools of Westwood, aka the school administrators have given up on Dorrell beating USC this weekend. Through the years the SC game week was called simply "Beat SC" week in Westwood. It was "Beat SC" week when I attended UCLA in first half of the 90s and tradition continued on until this year. The geniuses from Ackerman are calling this week's activities around the SC game as "Blue and Gold" week:
In previous years, the series of events which preceded the UCLA-USC game was called Beat 'SC Week, and was focused on generating support for the football team's bout with its traditional rival.
But this year, organizers wanted to emphasize school pride over athletic competition.
This year's events, titled Blue and Gold Week, are sponsored by the UCLA Student Alumni Association and will showcase traditional events including the Beat 'SC Car Smash and bonfire rally in Wilson Plaza, as well as new cultural and academic events.
Anyways ... back to basketball and destroying SC when we play them in 2 weeks. GO BRUINS.
