Default New USC tradition following Reggie Bush

First Star RB Reggie Bush now star Guard Mayo. I'm expecting their baseball program to follow suit this fall.

Not like anything will happen.

The NCAA's golden child will never get reprimanded.

They will just continue to say that they had no idea it was going on & the NCAA will continue to let it go.

I actually enjoyed the writing in that article. I'll have to delve deeper before I can post an opinion, but the article was very well reasoned out.

It makes me wonder what else is going on.

"The school has so far escaped facing NCAA prosecution for compelling allegations that star tailback Reggie Bush and his family were lavishly compensated by an aspiring agent while playing for the Trojans."
**********************************
Surprisingly candid language for ESPN regarding one of their favorites, little Reggie. I dunno, maybe ESPNs sponsers are reducing the number of commercials that feature Bush ?

Default Re: New USC tradition following Reggie Bush

Kind of reminds me of the whole Bear Stearns mess.

I think USC (or any BCS school for that matter) is "too big to fail" so to speak. That they can cheat and get by on 'less than adequate punishment' because in the grand scheme of things, a 'fair' punishment (SMU) could be and would be devastating. I don't think the NCAA ever wants to see the effects of that again (especially a money-maker like USC, Notre Dame, Ohio St., etc.).

Not saying if it's right or wrong, but just how the world is today.

SAN DIEGO — After months of legal wrangling, New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush finally will have to testify under oath about allegations that he received $291,000 in illegal cash and benefits from San Diego businessman and fledgling sports marketer Lloyd Lake.
Lake is suing Bush and his parents for reimbursement of the $291,000 he says he gave to Bush, stepfather LaMar Griffin and mother Denise Griffin while Bush was a student-athlete at Southern California. He has already spent several hours telling his side of the story to NCAA investigators.

Superior Court Judge Joan Lewis on Friday ordered Bush to give his deposition June 23, LaMar Griffin on June 27 and Denise Griffin on June 30. Lewis denied Bush's request to have armed security at the depositions. Furthermore, Lewis denied Bush's request for his deposition to remain confidential, which means it can be released to the NCAA and the news media. If Bush admits wrongdoing while he was a student-athlete, it could have major repercussions for USC's football program.

"We're very pleased the judge put a stop to Bush's ducking and dodging," said Brian Watkins, Lake's lawyer. Lake's deposition is scheduled for June 5 and 6. —

I dunno, but maybe Bush himself is finally running out of time ?
Does he testify or pay Lake for it to go away ?

I don't think that's the case. The NCAA had no problem banning Michigan from the tournament for several years after the Fab Five mess involving boosters.

I still laugh at all the USC bashing by A&M and UT fans when thier colleges do the exact same thing.

Or any good NCAA program for that matter

So there should be no penalty if you get caught?

Of just if USC gets caught?

There should be a penalty for whomever. But every major college allows this to happen to their players to some degree or another.

Getting mad at this is like getting mad at coaches for giving high school kids they are recruiting free booze and groupies. Its part of the game
