tWWL's "Outside The Lines" Profiles Mikey Garrett

Remember the LA Times puff piece on Mike Garrett being a "hands-off hands-off, so long as they win." Well tWWL's Outside the Lines (OTL) kind of exposes Mikey for his "hands on" approach when the Trogans were losing.  Mikey's hands on approach included berating players in locker room after tough losses.

The OTL report is a little predictable though as ESPN's "reporting" works hard to shield Southern Cal from responsibilities concerning Reggie Bush, while throwing the basketball program under the bus. It sure looked like that tWWL's reporter was going out of his way to put together a sympathetic frame around Mikey. Ya know ... poor poor Mikey ... he is just a tough guy who is misunderstood by his detractors.

To get the "full story" ESPN went to Scott Wolf (LOL) instead of actually talking to the reporters who have been doing all the work on exposing Southern Cal over Bush, McKnight and tons of other scandals coming out of South Central in recent years. Par for the course for tWWL considering it probably wants to do everything it can to protect the Trogan football program.

GO BRUINS.
