Trojan Cheaters Can't Say They Didn't know

The Big Lead caught this first but I am going to post it here for everyone.

It seems that USC knew way more than they are letting on. Greg Doyel first wrote about Mayo and Guillory in 2006. It seems that he knew almost as much as Kelli Naqi has figured out for ESPN, the only difference was that he didn't have receipts.

Doyel has this little nugget that is relevant to any claims of ignorance that Garret and other SC lackeys might make.

Though the USC football team faces the possibility of having to vacate its 2004 national championship, pending the results of the NCAA's investigation, the USC basketball team faces the possibility of adding a player sure to draw the NCAA's attention. And people at USC don't want to talk about it.

USC athletic director Mike Garrett didn't return numerous calls and e-mails for this story. But Garrett did get the message to the USC coaching staff -- and eventually to Guillory himself -- that CBS SportsLine.com was investigating Mayo's relationship with Guillory.

How do I know? Guillory told me. Guillory also told me that he doesn't work for an agent, and that he has done nothing to compromise Mayo's eligibility.

Ignorance is something fun to claim, but hard to hold on to when there is so much evidence to the contrary. In March of 2007, The Big Lead googled Guillory and found plenty that would suggest the relationship was not proper. How USC investigated this guy before and could not find what was on the internet is beyond me, but it sure doesn't look good, or it looks great, depending on your point of view.
