There is never any love lost between UCLA and USC. We are just a few hours away from the Battle for Los Angeles, and both teams are presumably chomping at the bit to get on the field.
Off the field, the trash talk is flying between the fan bases. Perhaps the worst shot fired has come from Datone Jones, a former Bruin now in the NFL with the Green Bay Packers. He just tweeted “one of his best memories playing USC” and it’s totally not cool: it’s a photo of himself standing over an injured Matt Barkley:
The USC-UCLA rivalry is a great one, but it’s much better when there’s mutual respect — Jones should be embarrassed by this. And tagging USC’s football account in the tweet too? Just poor, poor sportsmanship.
