There is definitely no love lost in the UCLA-USC rivalry. Yesterday while doing an interview on ESPN UCLA WR Shaq Evans brought the heat in his comments about USC and how they have struggled recently:
“They’re struggling, it’s just awesome to see that,” Evans said in quotes provided by Scott Wolf of the Los Angeles Daily News. “I hate them, so I’m just loving it. I’ve always hated them.”
“Knowing that we’re going to beat them again this year … especially two years ago when they beat us 50-0. We owe them a little bit,” Evans said. “This year, we’re going to try to embarrass them, honestly.”
I don’t know how Jim Mora Jr. will feel about this considering he has said publicly that he likes Lane Kiffin. However, I love this. It’s a little strange that UCLA has been good for about half a season and is pumping their chests out, but talk your trash young man. UCLA did still lose 5 games last year even though they are seen as the best team in LA now.
This will make the game a little bit more interesting at the end of the year.
