I’m Not About To Lie Down And Take One For The Team ………

Do you get the impression that in Southern Cal all is not right with the world ? The much storied athletics’ program of the USC Trojans is seemingly under siege not just from within but also from the outside. The findings of the NCAA’s Infraction Committee has yet to be made public. But there are ominous signs coming down from up above at the highest levels within the university. University President Steven B. Sample is stepping down from his position in his capacity as its President. And there are now “cries” for the current AD Mike Garrett to follow suit and simply step down.

Questions have been asked and raised about the University’s athletics program that have yet to be fully answered by either Garrett or Sample in any real capacity. And if anything the controversy that has continued to surround the school with regard to both its basketball and football programs has left something of a unsavory taste in everyone’s mouth not associated with the program and the school. What might even be more bewildering to some has been the snail’s pace in terms of the investigation undertaken by the NCAA into the allegations that’ve concerned both sports within the school’s Athletics Department. It does make you wonder who has been minding the store while much of this went on ? And certainly in the case of both men’s football coach Pete Carroll and Tim Floyd the Trojans’ former basketball coach, there are a great many questions that have gone unanswered. Carroll has since departed from USC to take up the head coach’s position of the Seattle Seahawks in the NFL . I guess “he” may have seen some of the ominous signs coming his way as the ” writing may well have been on the wall” ! And they talk about rats deserting a sinking ship ? The quickness of the departures of both “Carroll” and “Tim Floyd” only adds to the intrigue and the suspense. Never mind the aspects of ” …….. who knew what , where, when and why ? No one and I mean absolutely no one wants to talk about this “bitch” at all ! The silence is so deafening that you’d be under the impression that we were indeed investigating the murder of either Cripps or Blood gang member ?

Tim Floyd

Beleaguered former USC Trojans’ coach Tim Floyd takes questions from the convened press. There was a great deal of speculation involving Floyd’s association with known felon Rodney Guillory and a close personal friend and confidante of O J Mayo a former player on Floyd’s Trojans men’s basketball team.

One thing is becoming abundantly clear from this whole escapade and it is that USC is now covering its very own “ass” as it looks to stave off the wrath of the NCAA. Any punitive act on their (NCAA) part in terms of the suspensions of athletics’ scholarships , forfeiture of games and quite possibly of a the rescinding of whole competitive season and the results therein means absolutely nothing at the end of the day ! Especially when the program and the university have simply made tens of millions of dollars while the “alleged malfeasance” has gone on Simply put , the NCAA’s hierarchy are a bunch of oafs, if they think that the suspensions and forfeiture will have done enough to make USC learn its lesson. Hell , the boosters , alumni and no doubt senior members of the faculty are in fact laughing their asses off ! They might appear to be showing a great deal of concern but only insomuch as to how they will go about plotting their next ascent to the top of collegiate athletic. Do you get my point , you piss in the ocean and make a ripple but does it actually stir up the waves ? That’s about as much “damage” that will be done to the program when it’s all said and done !

Ever since the days of Reggie Bush’s ascent to stardom as a member of the Trojans’ football team , questions were being asked of the player and his close ties to an agent . Garrett for his part, acted none plus by this all, as if it were all news to him. But that has been the norm within the Trojans’ athletics’ program for years, that has been left unchecked by an administration that simply hasn’t cared , just as long as the “tangible success attained” remained consistent and was prolonged ! And would it have really made any difference to know that then men’s head basketball coach Tim Floyd knowingly gave $1,000-00 to an intermediary by the name of Rodney Guilllory, who was an associate and confidante’ of O J Mayo, the “the highly sought after prized recruit” on the Trojans men’s basketball team. One and done , Mayo was soon off to the NBA to make “his” fame and fortune . Can I get an amen, here ? I mean where else can you make a complete mockery of a system that is so corrupt that it is beyond belief. But yet we’re being told by all sides that what is now in place is of benefit to the student athlete .

I can only surmise that the likes of David Stern , Roger Goodell , Bud Selig and Gary Bettman are happy with their lot ! Never mind the joy that is being felt by NCAA President James Isch , colleges and the major athletics conferences across the nation are of a similar like mindedness when it comes to collegiate feeder system to professionalism that’s in place. The NCAA makes its money , the conferences , universities
, coaches, athletic directors and agents make theirs . At the end of it all more often than not the student athlete hasn’t even got a pot to piss in and a window to throw it out of . What is wrong with this picture I ask ?

And while we wait for the findings of the NCAA and the punishment to be levied, if any against the University of Southern California (USC) . Ask yourself this, whose best interests is now being served by this all ? Is it the USC (Trojans) ? Or is it the NCAA or quite possibly the professional governing bodies of MLB , NFL , NBA and the NHL ? If you believe you do indeed have the answer then by all means leave a comment as to the reasons why. I’ll look forward to reading them each and responding in due course. As always, thanks for the continued support , it is greatly appreciated as usual ! >

      Only USC Trojans can f_ck up , bend , break and simply run fast and loose. But yet the NCAA does nothing to them at all ! And we’re led to believe that there’s no favoritism concerning certain college programs ? That’s absolute bullshit ! The NCAA do anything but lick the shit out of the as_hole of USC just as long as it keeps them happy ! They make so “much money” not only for the school itself but the NCAA as a whole ! .

      USC’s much vaulted athletics’ program is essentially a pile of cow dung !

      She was too blinded by loyalty for her own good that not even “she” could be impartial to the fraud that was being perpetrated. But yet she tries to come off as pristine and above board ? That was all a complete crock and a facade to begin with ! Anyone who had an ounce of common sense had to have known what was going on there at USC And the biggest perpetrators behind the fraud were Carroll , Floyd and Mike Garrett, himself. Though it wouldn’t surprise me if the university president Steven Sample 😀 were involved as well !
      🙂

      It’s not as if to begin with the NCAA has taken the matter all that seriously despite the ongoing rumors and reporting over the last five or so years . But yet they (NCAA) would rather crack down on other universities for far less serious infractions.
      What an absolute crock of sh_t !

      “There’s no truth to the rumor that I told both Urban Meyer and Nick Saban to suck my d_ck” ! ” But I’d really like to see them try ” !

      Kiffin’s secret weapons to keep his players (roster) in check. They’ve been promised that they can “nail” every female member of the cheerleading squad if they have double digit wins this upcoming season. But then again who knows ’bout some of the guys on the Trojans’ squad ? Some of ’em might prefer to have “their salads tossed” ?

      How asinine was this also ? USC wanted to impose their own ban on the basketball program but “not impose one” on the football program. They now intend to fight any sanctions placed against the football program meted out by the NCAA. I guess Lane Kiffin will now start to make excuses should they get upended in the Pac-10 ?

      “Kelly I don’t think that it’s fair that I should have to swallow during oral sex with the players and you don’t ” ! “Well Brittany I am the head cheerleader so what I say goes and besides you are going to get “trained” by the O-line of the team . So be happy that you’re not being asked to do more “.

      This at the end of the day comes down to the economics of money . And the NCAA profits greatly when the USC Trojans are on top of the “collegiate football world” . Both you and I know that to be true !

  1. Just think there’s now not that much difference as to how archaic both the NCAA and NFL as to how they both deal with meting out punishment to those who break the rules within both domains.

    Goodell isn’t that dumb he simply looks that way the vast majority of the time ! Clueless as ever !

    NCAA President James Isch . Someone needs to remove that stick from up his ass please !

  2. What kills me is the fact that the NCAA is just getting around to sanctioning USC. Hilarious. USC has been paying college athletes forever.

    And while I’m on the subject, does anyone else find it weird how Pete Carroll was offered pretty much every single job in the NFL at the end of every season and turned them all down…then this comes up and he’s just gone with the wind? To the Seahwaks? Really? See right ther something’s messed up bad.

      NCAA are about as transparent as to how they conduct their business as the conclave of Cardinals are in choosing a Pope ! As for USC ……you eat fruit from the forbidden tree then expect to pay the price .
