My lord, everyone involved with this seems to be a whiny biatch.

Yet another reason why about half the bowl games could go away with no loss.

Meh, Lane Kiffen, you get what you get.

So they celebrate the ending of a two year bowl ban by making up for lost time.

El Paso IS a shiatty city, I see no reason to apologize for that.

No showing for dinner on the other hand is a total dick move.

The Pac-12 should send its worst bowl team to the Sun Bowl. No one wants to go there.

Well they didn't no show. They were late, and explained why and it seems the sponsors of the dinner were informed ahead of time, and GT left early.

I think most journalists by this point really hate USC. Carroll (I think) was always pretty good with the media during his time there, but Kiffin is a grade A dick.

If you want to be a dick with the media and expect to be covered fairly, or even favorably, by most media outlets, you might want to have multiple national championships on your mantle (ex: "Nick Saban").

Even people who live in El Paso will concede this fact. It was bad form to tweet it, but it's El Paso for chrissakes. I once spent three weeks stranded there on business waiting for parts to arrive for an install I was doing. THREE WEEKS (paid) with nothing to do but sit and wait. There are few cities I would classify as sh*ttier than El Paso.

I love how the mouthbreathers on ESPN try to hype up these bowl games. Yeah, getting shipped to Detroit, Boise, or El Paso in order to play an exhibition game sure is an honor! Especially for all those deserving 6-6 (or 6-7 in GT's case) teams that had a 'good' season. And those bowl gifts sure make up for not giving players - some of whom generate thousands, if not millions, of dollars in revenue for their school - a cut of the big boy money. I wish they'd just be honest and say that the only reason half the bowl games exist is so ESPN can cheaply fill four hours of programming and so coaches/admins can keep raking in the $$$ from sleazy bowl organizers.

Every time I visit USC I dislike it even more. Most people there are absolutely insufferable, there is rich people at basically any other school that don't see the need to act douchey, but most people I came across there were just terrible. A guy there was telling me how they can do basically whatever the hell they want there since the cops often hesitate to mess with students since they don't know who daddy might be.
 
2012-12-28 03:17:24 PM  
Can't we just agree that USC is full of assholes AND El Paso is a shiatty city?

One turd calling another turd out for being turdish. Nothing to see here.
 
2012-12-28 03:22:54 PM  
El Paso is not the greatest city. Know what? Neither is L.A. In fact, I can guaran-goddamn-tee the insufferable douche-bag ratio is way, way higher in old Sunny CA. Lane Kiffin isn't fit to be a 8th grade football coach, but his daddy's name gets him hired. He's a jerk. I'm glad they have to go to the Sun Bowl. It is, quite frankly, about what they deserve. Hopefully, next year they won't even rate....

/Suck it USC>....

They make money and the players (excluding USC, obviously) generally love them. So where's the harm?

Heh. Apparently the cops busting the frat house selling coke out of it back in 2002 didn't get that memo. I can't count the number of times LAPD showed up to our house to shut down our parties. Luckily usually DPS usually would drop by to let us know they were on the way so we could start closing it down.

Ive lived in Texas my whole life and have met 1 person from there who speaks highly of it. The other 20 or so Ive met would never go back if they didn't have family who lived there.

Oh, bullshiat. El Paso is not a bad city - safe, great culture and great cuisine. And the Sun Bowl has been played for over 70 years - it's not like the friggin "Belk Bowl" or "Beef O Brady's Bowl".

USC sucks and this behavior is likely related to their total douchenozzle of a coach.

As someone who grew up near El Paso and went to USC for grad school my emotions are trying to care but are cancelling each other out anyway.

Sun Bowl had a chance to take Arizona and passed. It's a four hour drive from Tucson to El Paso and the Cats would have likely brought 10-15k fans or more. Plus RichRod wouldn't let things turn into the fiasco that this USC trip has become.

I'm sure they're really happy with their choice now.

FTFA:

(UPDATE: Here is the explanation from USCFootball.com on the dinner faux pas: The Trojans said they were only a half hour late, bowl officials knew the whole time, Georgia Tech actually left 75 minutes before it was supposed to, and therefore USC deserves no blame. "It wasn't a problem for anybody," USC Sports Information Director Tim Tessalone said Thursday to the site. "No one was upset.")

So, in rough order: it was the plane's fault, it was the bowl's fault, it was Georgia Tech's fault, Georgia Tech was actually early, it was the fault of multiple writers who witnessed and reported it, nothing really happened, and the people who were upset are lying.

Were any of us alive the last time USC did something wrong and truly accepted blame for it?
 
2012-12-29 03:36:11 AM  
Well when you are getting paid as much as they are you can show up when you want.
 
2012-12-29 06:35:02 AM  
I don't think a season goes by without at least one player going to the Sun Bowl stating his dissatisfaction, and not necessarily for the bowl game or how the events are organized.
