I am shocked. Shocked I tell you. I wonder what the spin is going to be from Pom Pom and all his apologists (cough TrojanPundit) around the blogosphere (cough CFR). Look what we go here. Mr. President and his family may be nothing but bunch of cheap crooks:
That home, residents would tell you, was where Reggie Bush's family lived.
That is, until this weekend, when the family abruptly packed up and vacated the residence - less than 24 hours after Yahoo! Sports approached Bush's mother about information linking the property to Michael Michaels, a man who is alleged to have tried to play a role in steering Bush toward an agent and who also has ties to a sports marketing company.
Days before Bush is expected to be the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft, unanswered questions about the residence and how his mother, stepfather and brother came to live in it within the last year have prompted the University of Southern California to refer the matter to the Pacific-10 Conference for an investigation.
NCAA statutes prohibit student-athletes or their families from receiving extra benefits from professional sports agents, marketing companies or their representatives. A breach of these statutes could result in an athlete being ruled ineligible, and games in which they played could be forfeited.
USC finished 12-1 last season, its 35-game winning streak and national championship bid both ending with a loss in the Rose Bowl to Texas. Bush, a junior running back, won the Heisman Trophy and elected to skip his senior season and turn pro in January.
In response to reporters' questions about the matter late last week, USC athletic department officials said they would look into it.
Yes we are holding our breaths. Yeah I am sure the Trojans will be looking into whether Pom Pom's program's MARQUEE SUPERSTAR cheated off the field. Yeah okay sure. And we believe OJ is looking for Nicole's killer.
Perhaps there is a reason why Clausen picked the Domers over the Trojans. Who wants to be near a program that has been dirty and out of control for years. But then again remember (according to CFR) Pom Pom is a physical genious! So this just may be part of his grand plan. This is how he gets the players to come into that little hell hole in South Central. This is perhaps how they get taken care of off the field?
I wonder if the LA Times do a huge story on this. Will Scott Wolf of the Daily News be all over it tomorrow and beyond? We will wait and see. But judging from the past (more on that later this week) there is not a lot reason for hope that the traditional media in LA will actually do its job and look into this story closely. They have failed to look into all the stories that have been percolating online over the years concerning Pom Pom's shady program.
