Pump up your fellow Cal fans by copying this on your Facebooks/Myspaces/whatever, printing this out, taking it to the game, spreading it among your Bears in the stands to help rile them up.
Yo, everyone, GET YOUR GODDAMNED GAME FACES ON. These are the Trojans, and we need to treat them like Trojans: Give them a rollicking ride, take them on a three-hour, dirty-talking, ass-slapping, multiple-orgasm-producing trip to the next dimension, and then tear ‘em off and flush ‘em down the toilet and grab a beer and fall asleep with a fat-ass smile.
Can we do that? Does a Bear s--- in Tommy Trojan’s megaphone? Did O.J. do it? Did O.J. Mayo get paid? Is ‘Tusk’ the worst song in the history of recorded music? Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Let’s dooooooooooo itttttttt.
Conditions: Lots and lots of wind. Northwest winds of 20 to 30 mph, with gusts up to 45 mph. That is not a misprint.
Temperature: 67 degrees near the kickoff, dropping to about 57 degrees by 9 PM, although I'm not sure how much that takes into account the wind factor.
Line: USC favored by 4
No Pac-10 primer this week. It's not like any of you care about the rest of these games anyway. Inside the Pac-10 will recap all the other games tomorrow or Monday.
All of the moderators (Marshawnthusiasts, Jahvidtician, Follettariat) will be at the game, and we'll all try to at least make cameos at the tailgate, so show up! Follow us on the Twitter for any updates.
For the rest of you watching elsewhere (on your big screens, at the bars, on ESPN360), keep things reasonable while we're gone. Except for the SC hating. You can do plenty of that.
Here's the estimated schedule of posts, so keep this in mind.
4:00 PM PST/7 PM EST: 1st quarter thread will go up.
5:45 PM PST/8:45 PM EST: 2nd quarter thread
6:30 PM PST/9:30 PM EST: 3rd quarter thread
7:15 PM PST/10:15 PM EST: 4th quarter thread (and overtime thread if necessary)
8:45 PM PST/11:45 PM PST: Postgame thread
If any of the posts go up before the quarter is concluded, stay in the current quarter thread. Only move on to the next thread after the quarter is concluded, then link to the next quarter thread in the comments of the bottom quarter thread (i.e. 1st quarter concludes, someone link to the 2nd quarter thread, etc.).
In the unlikely case the game is moving at warp vector eight, just stay in the current thread until the next quarter thread appears at the times above before linking.
Enjoy the games, here's the schedule of games to pay attention to:
5 PM: USC at California, ABC HD/ESPN360 in areas not televised
