How many houses did Johnson get to play for USC? I kid, I kid.
It's not like I don't believe that Reggie got any benefits clearly he did, I just take exception to the notion that the University was involved. What this whole situation comes down to is that the NCAA is trying to protect it's cash cow and decided to make an example out of us so that it would ward off agents trying to get kids to jump ship early. LOIC in my opinion is a harsh punishment for the allegations. Take Florida State for decades it's been accused and found guilty of similar indiscretions and time after time got a slap on the wrist. Florida State was found to be at fault in tutors hired by the school giving test results to students, now that's LOIC, that's a school literally cheating for the benefit of winning games. But in the minds of fans across the country USC is the big bad bully and they think Pete Carrol is smug, wouldn't you be if you won 7 straight Pac-10 titles and 2 National Championships. They don't afford the same criticism to Bobby Bowden, why because he's folksy and talks with a southern drawl.
As I said before USC did not benefit from the Reggie Bush affair, the agent was there to convince him to leave early. No benefits were given till well into his time at USC. With OJ Mayo i'll admit that cant be defended, I hate that bastard Tim Floyd. Basketball is a sespool of shady characters, I say pay the athletes and have NCAA and NFL/NBA controlled pre-agencies. It would only be in the revenue producing sports and as with liquor sales if it's controlled with some guidelines it would drive out shady characters.

looks like another long and painful season for UofL so i think i may have to skipp college football and just wait for college bball to start up. though i will still try and get to a game at the expaned stadium for football. may have to check out our new bball stadium in downtown louisville.
I go to Texas A&M and we won out opening game.
The atmosphere at college games is amazing.....I cant wait for the Texas Tech and Oklahoma games this year at Kyle Field
I take it that you're bandwagon team is Boise State because the majority of their players are from California? I did watch bits of that game last night (first qtr)
Watched Sports Centre this morning, nail biting stuff in that game...
The Boise State-VT game last night was great. I still don't know how I feel about Boise playing in the NC after playing two good teams.
