Trojan Blotter, 842nd Edition

In what is a continuing theme during the Cheatie Peatie Era, a couple of Trojans made news for the wrong reasons this week.  First, the judge in the Reggie Bush case took the first step toward doing the right thing by tentatively sanctioning Bush's lawyers:

A San Diego Superior Court judge tentatively has ruled that former sports marketing investor Lloyd Lake is entitled to $24,750 in attorneys' fees from former USC running back Reggie Bush and his parents.

The tentative ruling is subject to a hearing next week. Lake, who is suing Bush and his parents, sought attorneys' fees from Bush after winning a legal round against Bush on Aug. 1. In that round, Bush's attorneys sought to have the case decided in confidential arbitration out of court – a motion the judge denied.

That same motion ruling has been appealed by Bush's attorneys, which likely will delay the case for months.

Lake is seeking almost $300,000 in cash and goods he said was lent and spent on behalf of Bush and his family. The NCAA has been monitoring the case as it tries to determine whether Bush or his family accepted improper benefits while Bush was at USC.

Based on the facts as I understand them, there is a substantial likelihood the order becomes final.

Next, Shareece Wright was charged with felony resisting arrest just last week.  Felony resisting arrest?  Really?  How much of a disrespectful jerk do you have to be to be charged with a felony for resisting arrest--a week after the incident happened? Not to worry though, I am sure Cheatie will give him the punishment that he "deserves".  Does Ray Thuguluga own the police in Colton too?

It's great to be a criminal at Cal Southern!

It is funny that everyone at SC got mad when Ray Small observed:

"[It's] a class thing. Here at Ohio State, they teach you to be a better man. There, it's just all about football."

With stories like these a regular occurrence, is there any doubt that football is indeed all they care about at Cal Southern?  In the end, none of this matters--AS LONG AS THEY BEAT OHIO STATE.
