OC Register Columnist Calls for Garrett to be Ousted.


Mark Whicker, columnist for the OC Register says that Garret should step down because the major criticism of the program is lack of institutional control.  As Orange County is an USC hotbed, it was surprising that the columnist would call for Garrett's head.

The first consequence of the USC sanctions should be the removal of athletic director Mike Garrett, shortly after that national championship crystal ball disappears.

Silly NCAA rules are still rules. For Garrett to ignore the football and basketball shenanigans would require severe sensory deprivation on his part. That's unlikely for such a micromanager.

The phrase is "institutional control." Garrett fired basketball coach Tim Floyd because O.J. Mayo happened during Floyd's tenure. The same logic should cost Garrett.

 

 

Garrett has been defiant in the face of the NCAA sanctions, a factor that may work to USC's detriment in the appeals process.   The program is quickly adopting an "us against the world" attitude.   It will be interesting to see whether the appeals process will produce any changes, and when the effect of the sanctions will be felt by the program, given that appeal of the sanctions stays enforcement for some of the penalties.
