Well looky here. ESPN apparently did a follow-up on its not so original Mike Garrett story. To do so it trotted out a Trojan shill and a clueless columnist from the local media: Adam Rose and Jill Painter.
Just what kind of Trojan shill is Adam Rose:
- Adam Rose was classless enough to defend Ray Maualaga's infamous grinding on Erin Andrews. His post was so embarrassing that the LA Times had to redact it.
- He "covered" the story of Tim Floyd (allegedly) giving cash to OJ Mayo by cutting pasting a LOL funny Q&A with Trojan walkon Chris Penrose that serving up Trojan talking points.
- Rose called the Bush scandal "speculative" and dismissed as rogue agents "crying wolf."
What was a total joke that the LAT decided to put this clown in charge of editing "What's Bruin." It was an EPIC FAIL as that "blog" eventually folded because all the readers saw right through his Trojan hackery. He is now the "Associate Editor" for Huffington Post sports? ROFL.
Anyway tWWL trotted out this clown out to offer observations on Mike Garrett and Southern Cal's NCAA troubles. What happened? ESPN couldn't get a hold of the Trojan SID to get the talking points? They could have dialed up any of their "sources" from Heritage Hall reiterating the Trojan spin that all of their problems was around Timmeh's basketball program while the football program as Splashme once declared "follows the rules."
Also, nice touch by tWWL of bringing in Jill Painter. LOL. After all it's the same Jill Painter who once wrote "Pete Carroll is everything that's right about college football." What happened? ESPN couldn't locate Schilly Smith?
You wonder why Bruin fans don't take that network all that seriously especially when it comes to matters concerning Southern Cal.
