Interestingly enough, Roberts, who coaches a California-based baseball team, dressed up as a Colorado-based coach in Colorado as the Buffaloes prepare to take on the USC Trojans, also a California-based team.
That's not going over well, with some fans responding to this.
????? shouldn?t u be supporting the LA team this week?!

Another fan pointed out that Roberts attended UCLA, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in history in 1995. So, given those schools rivalry, it makes more sense.
He did go to UCLA so no way he is rooting for USC

As mentioned, the Dodgers dropped their Thursday matchup, splitting the four-game series with the Rockies. Now, the 98-win Dodgers head back out on the road for a final three-game series against the San Francisco Giants. The Dodgers are also 14 games ahead in the NL West race and have clinched a playoff spot and the division title.
As for the Buffaloes, the team Roberts was representing, they're 3-1 this season, coming off a 42-6 loss against the Oregon Ducks. Hosting USC this week, they'll have to deal with a Trojans offense led by Heisman candidate and projected No. 1 overall 2024 NFL Draft pick, quarterback Caleb Williams.
We'll see if the Buffaloes can enjoy a similar fate as the Dodgers have this season when they take on the Trojans at home at Folsom Field at noon ET on September 30.
