Cincinnati quarterback Jordan Palmer, who backs up his brother Carson on the Bengals, made the L.A. radio rounds Tuesday to promote an iPhone app he helped develop call RunPee. After doing about 15 minutes on the biz bit with the Mason & Ireland Show on 710 ESPN, Palmer asked the hosts what they thought of the USC-Ohio State game.

Seconds later, it became apparent Palmer wasn’t so concerned with what the hosts had to say. Instead, he was looking for a platform to make like his brother Carson a year ago. Here’s what the former USC QB and Heisman winner said on L.A radio in 2008:
I cannot stand the Buckeyes. Having to live in Ohio and hear those people talk about their team, it drives me absolutely nuts.
And now for some of Jordan’s comments, which were strikingly similar to his brother’s.
Our Trojans are going to wreak some havoc this week. Ohio State fans are the most annoying people on the planet. It’s unbelievable. … They wear their stuff year-end, because there’s nothing else going on here.
They blamed it on the quarterback situation last year. (Now) They’ve got everything they need, I’m ready to see SC whip up on them when they’re healthy and full speed. (audio)
“Our” Trojans? Correct me if I’m wrong but didn’t Jordan strap on a jock for UTEP?
Dude is hanging by a thread in Cincinnati with the Bengals and blows up OSU exactly one year after his brother did the same - and took a subsequent torrent of criticism locally.
Sounds like Jordan might be a wee too optimistic about the financial prospects of RunPee.
