I've always liked Carson Palmer, since he days at USC. I always felt that he was a solid quarterback with great field vision and a cannon for an arm. Well Carson has just endeared himself to me even more, and he may be winning some new fans after this verbal takedown of The "University of Ohio State."
I cannot stand the Buckeyes and having to live in Ohio and hear those people talk about their team it drives me absolutely nuts.
As a Michigan fan in Ohio, I couldn't have said it better myself.
Love the Candor, a franchise QB in the Buckeye State just berating the most beloved team in the land. This man has some cajones.
It’s amazing to hear what those guys think about that university and what they think about that football program and Tressel and all the crap I gotta put up with being back there. I just can’t wait for two years from now when SC comes to the Shoe and hopefully we’ll have a home game that weekend and I can go up there and watch us pound on them in their own turf and kind of put all the talk to rest because I’m really getting sick of it and I just can’t wait for this game to get here so they can come out to the Coliseum and experience LA and get an ald [ed. - did he really say "ald?" This has to be a typo, even if he said ald, I'm sure it would have been transcribed as old, so I'm gonna go with a typo]-fashioned Pac-10 butt-whooppin and go back to the Big Ten.
Well Carson I'm with you, I really hope that the Trojans lay a beat down on Tress and the Bucks.
IMO this is without a doubt the biggest non-con game of the year and maybe the best early season showdown since that epic night game between OSU and Vince Young in 2005.
(My early prediction is USC 27 OSU 24. I will cover this game with a nice little preview during the week of the game, as well as my official prediction.)
HT to Jim Rome, who talked about this story on the radio this afternoon.
