I'm sick of those guys constantly trashing this program. They were comparing what Yusef Kelly did (kicking someone w/o his helmet) to DJ's pose and crap talking to Dabo. Unbelievable!
How are these two still on the radio? Id rather listen to classical music. They sound like arrogant a$$holes on the radio and don't seem to know anything a caller asks.

Guess 107.5 is the way to go
You mean you guys dont love hearing Teddy read you the newspaper on the air.
Yet you still listen. And then run to the message boards to talk about it.
I'm warning people not to tune in...
What's da station?
Teddy might be the worst person I've heard on the radio. He says uhhh after every two words and saying he reads his listeners the newspaper is a perfect description.
The only thing I would ever listen to was when he would have Ellis Johnson on. 107.5 sucks in the morning too. I listen to the 104.9 app sometimes through my phone. Atleast its entertaining and Tony was on this morning.
sorry Bill. 560, especially in the morning, is garbage.
"As 'X' says: People are suckers for the truth. And the truth is on your side, Bubba."
The whole "they don't play football the right way" argument - all it means is "they don't play football like we or I did at [school] back in [year]."
Should DJ have celebrated right over Ellington? No. Given it being a rivalry game, and all the smack Dabo and Clemson players talked for a year after losing last year, is it understandable that emotions got the best of him in that moment? Yes.
And this fantasy world of football being devoid of smack talk, personal fouls and unsportsmanlike flags back in X year is also crap. You know, when you could near decapitate another player and not get a flag I bet you didn't have as many urges to talk smack.
Also, fans have direct access to players 24/7 through social media. There's constant coverage of every minute detail of programs, coaches and players. I cannot imagine the things said to DJ on twitter, Instagram etc in the past year, especially in the weeks before the game. Sammy was running his mouth to DJ some time in the past year.
The bottom line is that DJ's celebrating right over Ellington wasnt right, but all things are not equal to football and life decades ago, and instead of tearing down players on the team and maybe some folks need to stop thinking and addressing things from such a self-centered point of view. It comes across bitter, out of touch and pathetic, and it certainly won't encourage anyone to consider your opinion.
Finally, I'll get hammered for this by some but there are definitely racial undertones in what is being said. If that was Jared Shaw, people may still comment but I very seriously doubt the intensity and borderline personal attacks would even come close to occurring.
DJ didn't talk crap to Dabo. This straight form the horse's mouth.

Hopefully you see the irony (hypocrisy) in your complaining about someone trashing a USC sports program.
It is amazing that hack (Heffner) is still on the air. He must have some dirt on someone at that station.
I live in the upstate, and I hate to say it, but 104.9 is miles better on the whole than any Cola radio station. They do it the right way, circle the wagons and cater to the homers.
I used to cringe listening to Teddy when I lived in Cola. The irony of a radio announcer with a speech impediment is one thing, but when the content sucks also, you gotta scratch your head.
The fact that they are still talking about DJ's hit on Ellington over a week later tells me they don't have much to talk about on their show. Business must be slow. I'm glad I have never once listened to their show, and never will.
"Never look down on anyone unless you're helping them up."
Yeah, but they won't believe DJ, and will believe some tater idiot (Larry Williams) who never actually heard the comments. This is typical orange propaganda to deflect the 4-year domination in the rivalry. Anyone, other than tater fans (because they will), should never believe anything coming from the hills. The enemy is real and we need to keep stepping on their throats.

I don't understand why it is such a cliche' to trash radio host on a web board.. What Teddy and Sanford are talking about I don't totally agree with. Dabo brought this crap on himself if it happen. BUT.. if Jesus Christ were on the air would any of you guys trash him too? You can't host a radio show and not say everything that everyone wants to hear all the time. GEEZ
in 20 years if DJ Swearinger comes back and host a radio show I bet you guys would get all over him too!!
I find the OP saying he is 'sick of hearing people trash the program' to be hypocracy at the highest level. Maybe OP should read his own posts, and see if he gets mad.

Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
I back this program up w/ my financial and other support such as donations to the alumni association, bowl trips, buying over-priced parking spaces around the stadium. My money is where my mouth is and thus gives me the right to complain.
How about you?
Upvote. Disagree with many of your opinions, but you're entitled to them. Too many times, the word tater gets thrown towards people who say anything even slightly against the cocks.
same. I have 6 kids, 2 of whom USC, so the trips to games are not near as doable. Regardless, I don't think doing these things "gives" one a right to trash sports programs. You have the right anyway.
But you look like an ass when you constantly complain (and more specifically to you, make absurd, whiney and outlandish statements) - both during the emotion of a game and during the week - and then become self-righteous because a guy with a radio audience does the same thing you do.
Teddy is a moron who still wishes he was back in high school, one of those old guys who thinks they know everything because they played in high school. Dr. Rick is just a bitter old dude that thinks the university owes him everything, sick of him bashing DJ, thinks he's a thug, hypocritical as hell, Dr. Rick is the one with the rap sheet.
But I thought it worth mentioning, because some on here may not have seen or heard about DJ's tweet. They can believe what they want, but we all know why they are complaining about this. I don't want to get specific, but it's like in politics when one side can't win on facts, they start a character debate or drum up BS conspiracy charges.
For me personally, I loved the hit and the taunt. It was ABSOLUTELY worth the 15 yards.
