It looks like USC QB Matt Barkley only took until his second year at SC before trying to find his Hollywood relationship, a la Matt Leinart and Reggie Bush. Peep the screenshot below:
*Kanye voice* I’m sorry Matt, but Matt and Reggie had two of the best fake Hollywood relationships of all-time! Well not really, but for real, every time you hear the name Taylor Swift, I can’t be the only one that thinks of Kanye’s rant where he stole the mic from her at the VMA’s. I do have a couple of thoughts on this though.
Of all the girls that you have access to being the QB of one of the most high profile colleges in the country, you are chasing Taylor Swift? Really? *JaMarcus shrug* Also, I guess it’s now the thing to reach out to women via Twitter and hope someone sends it to them, which if you are serious about meeting her, seems like a punk move to me. If you are going to use Twitter to get your #pimpfocus on, use a DM son.
Lastly, there is a reason why USC has taken a dip (for them) in the last couple of years. Former players have come out and said the players are caught up in the SoCal lifestyle, and articles like this are not exactly rare. Since that article was written, I’m calling Matt Leinart and LenDale White busts. My suggestion for young Mr. Barkley: Keep your head in a playbook and stay away from picking up girls on Twitter … or at least send the messages via direct message so it’s private.
