Focusing on the Ed Ogre recruiting malfeasance, (which he downgrades to "no NCAA rules were broken") he has this gem to share: "What’s even more interesting, however, is how the Norm Chow-to-USC deal has fallen apart. . . . By itself, the idea of Kiffin as USC coach would’ve been laughed away as a major joke. But with that All-Star staff, it was deemed okay." In discussing SC's spin machine's attempt to down play that failure he adds: "Those quotes, which were seen on television by millions (I presume), are nowhere to be found in the official press conference transcript. Soviet historians would be proud."
