Put a Trojan on that Cock

Hey, when I say Trojan what immediately comes to mind?  So what’s up with this crap?

The University of Southern California Trojans have prevailed in a trademark suit in which the University of South Carolina Fighting Gamecocks sought to use the letters “SC” on baseball team clothing.

Apparently winning wasn’t enough for the Trojans’ attorney, who took the opportunity to talk trash:

“[Edelman] also suggested that the letters were more deservedly linked to the Trojans’ warrior image than to “a goofy little chicken.”

“I think they wanted to move away from the gamecock logo,” Edelman said of the school in the South. “Something that is totally understandable.”

Warrior image my ass.  Cheap ass condoms that are unworthy to sheath a genuine ‘Cock from South Carolina…
You know what though, that west coast school has Lane Kiffin now and I suppose that’s punishment enough.

And by the way, the University of South Carolina was founded in 1801, 49 years before California achieved statehood.  So, we all know who we mean when we say THE USC.

  1. McDonald’s has successfully enforced their trademark against people of that name and all its various spellings from using their own family names to identify their business enterprises. Ironic, since the head of the Macdonald clan in Scotland says the corporation never obtained his permission to use the name to sell hamburgers in the first place.

  2. You still have to laugh at those comments by the So Cal lawyer… “goofy little chicken”. I gave out the guy’s email my the afternoon show today. I figured he would want to hear from some Gamecock fans.

    THE USC baseball team team will continue to wear the SC hats this season and I’m told they plan to take the case to the Supreme Court. Apparently these Cocks aren’t going down without putting up a hard fight. Here’s hoping Supreme Court doesn’t Cock block them.

    Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

  3. Good luck with the Supreme Court. Just as paper covers rock, Trojan covers Cock.
