You Would Have if You Could Have???

Posted by rtmsf on September 19th, 2007

We appreciate great intercollegiate smack, even if it’s focused on the gridiron.

Which is why when we saw that USC had placed an incredibly defiant billboard stating “You Would Have if You Could Have” in the heart of Westwood (mere blocks from UCLA), we had to rise and applaud the Men of Troy’s brashness.

USC Billboard

Of course, UCLA might respond with its own billboard in several ways. Here are some quick thoughts:

  • “13-9. Dec. 2, 2006.”
  • “Even your billboards move to Westwood.”
  • “All your TimFloyd are belong to us.”
  • “UCLA grad: Kareem; USC Grad: OJ” (w/ pics of course)
  • “USC: University of South Central”

We’re sure our LA-area readers can come up with better ones (all three of them).

(major h/t to Lion in Oil for this find)

  1. I really don’t understand what this billboard is referring to. It’s not like UCLA’s admission standards are any weaker than USC’s. You would’ve gone here if you could’ve afforded it? Kinda a bitch thing to gloat about. You would’ve been better at football if you could’ve? Kinda awkward grammar.

    Maybe I’m over-analyzing.

    The billboard shows a man pushing Matt Leinart into the endzone at the end of the 2005 Notre Dame game (the infamous “Bush push”). It is referring to the fact that any USC fan would have pushed Matt into the endzone given the opportunity.

    It is referring to trojan tv…you would have watch the game if you could have, which doesn’t make much sense since that notre dame game was on national television lol.
