08:31 AM ET 09.23 | Vontaze Burfict looms. Monte Kiffin, USC's defensive coordinator, described Burfict this way: "He's unbelievable. He's big, fast, strong. He's got great talent. He's going to be playing on Sundays, there isn't any doubt about that." ... USC will have to deal with Burfict on Saturday night, when the 6-foot-3, 250-pound junior hopes to celebrate his 21st birthday by terrorizing the Trojans and quarterback Matt Barkley. Barkley isn't much of a Burfict fan. "He's a dirty player," the quarterback said, basing his opinion on what he suggests were efforts by the linebacker to injure him by diving at his knees during a high school game. "His switch is always on. And it's not a good switch."

Nope, but Barkley may wish he was if that guy gets a shot at him!

But did Barkley say it using a low sultry voice?

These aren't pants. It's a full orange lower body tattoo.

I am very dedicated.

Dude is coming off as a whiner, especially for something that happened in high school. Grow the bleep up and play football.

Barkley should just throw one away as Burfict comes at him and then pop him on like he's blocking, LOL. But I regress, the Uni of Spoiled Children need to be put in its place and it happens this Sat.

Barkley needs to keep his mouth shut and concentrate on beating the Sundevils, they are a very fast good "defensive" team!!!!!!
