UCLA’s Shaq Evans happy to see USC football struggling


While the USC-UCLA rivalry doesn’t get the same type of press that others may get, it’s still a relatively strong rivalry, especially between players – say like UCLA wide receiver Shaq Evans.

Evans recently sat down with the Los Angeles Daily News and expressed his excitement for how bad the crosstown Trojans have been playing this season:

“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. This year, we’re going to try to embarrass them, honestly.
They’re struggling, it’s just awesome to see that. I hate them. So I’m just loving it.
“I’ve always hated them.”

Evans goes on in his near five minute audio interview, but you get the point.

The talented wide receiver has more reason to dislike USC than off his UCLA uniform alone as Evans was a transfer from Notre Dame, who also has a relatively solid rivalry with the Trojans.

No matter the uniform though, it’s clear Evans is no fan of USC. And I’m guessing the feeling is quite mutual.

    Shaq Evans on crack if he thinks USC will allow that bullshit game from last year to happen again. By the way Bruins, why don’t you get a National Championship for yourself and not share one. Yeah it’s a while since USC won the Nat title, but it was far longer since UCLgay’s shared title

      USC couldn’t beat the cougs for their home opener. It looks like they’re more than capable of allowing that “bullshit game from last year” to happen again. USC has a shared title as well, no?

        Wow…UCLgay…how creative…they have some smart cookies over there in South Central

      • Craig Hasan

        When two QBs who have differences in their play are “taking turns” it’s gonna be a bit difficult. Not to mention it was solely due to shitty offense. BTW, does ucla have any of their own Nat titles?

  • OCBrewin

    damn, that SHAQ is right, this year’s trojan beatdown will be epic. Troggies are scared…Booing in south central can be heard everywhere.

  • Rave on!

    He’s bitter cuz he wasn’t good enough for USC.
