Merry Christmas to one and all!

December 24, 2009

Hey Football Fiends!

I’ve been enjoying a little extended Holiday Break here on Gridiron Goddess. Licking my wounds, so to speak and hoping for better things for my beloved USC Trojans next year!

Tomorrow, I’ll be watching my San Diego Chargers kick Vince Young and the Titans asses. What a good Christmas present that will be. I always enjoy seeing Young go down. Call it a four-year hangover from the 2006 Rose Bowl, whatever.

I’ll also be watching USC’s men’s basketball team take on my hometown UNLV Runnin’ Rebels in the Championship Game of the tournament going on in Hawaii this week.

Then of course on Saturday, USC vs Boston College in the Emerald Bowl. Friends, I don’t even want to hazard to make a guess on the final outcome there. I watched Oregon State implode vs BYU live at the LV Bowl on Tuesday. Cal’s performance against Utah in the Poinsettia Bowl on Wednesday left a lot to be desired. For it being such an up year for the Pac-10 with one of the most exciting conference races in the country, we’re sure not showing our strength so far in Bowl games.

I’m not even going to get into the Joe McKnight crap right now. Or the three Trojans declared academically ineligible for the Emerald Bowl. It makes my head hurt to think about it. Have we not suffered enough this season?

Perhaps Santa can bring my Trojans a much needed season ending victory on Saturday? Maybe if I leave Santa and extra special treat tonight?

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Football Fiends!

Charlie Weis is a classless jackass

December 6, 2009

Hello Football Fiends,
It’s late and it’s been a hard day of football –hell, it’s been a hard season of football for this Trojan — but I cannot let this pass by.

In an interview posted on, former Notre Dame Coach Charlie Weis makes some very inflammatory accusations about USC Coach Pete Carroll’s personal life.

Let us not forget, Weis has famously controlled all media access to his family and his special needs daughter. He’s declared them off limits. So why the fuck is he going on a national forum to tell stories about Carroll’s personal business? It’s not even about whether it is TRUE or not. It’s Carroll’s business, not Weis’s. It has nothing to do with Pete’s ability to do the job he was hired for. It is a non-issue to anyone outside of PC’s own family.

And as to WHY Notre Dame might have a problem with Weis swearing, let alone carrying on an alleged affair — well is he really that fucking stupid? He was employed by a Catholic University with very high standards. Did he really think he wouldn’t be held to a higher standard of behavior than coaches like Carroll or Nick Saban or Les Miles or Jeff Tedford or any number of FBS coaches at non-denominational universities?!

And REALLY, if Carroll were doing what Weis has alleged he is doing, BELIEVE ME PEOPLE WOULD KNOW. Not that it is any of our business.
