Looks like the entertainment is not going to stop any time soon. SportsByBrooks just posted the following comments from Mark Larson, a member of the "USC Board of Counselors" (emphasis added):
There’s a difference between cheating and breaking the rules. This was breaking the rules. It’s ludicrous to say USC was cheating.
"It’s comical that everyone cares about what happens at USC. If this were any other Pac-10 school, no one would care this much.
"The people who are boosters and really involved in the program are of the same mindset I am. Face it, most people in the Pac-10 would take the nine years we had in exchange for what happened (Thursday).
Guess this is very close to the official line for these sleazy cheaters because according to the official southern con website this Board of Counselors is described as "the main advisory board for the Athletic Department."
Obviously it's child's play to come up with a rebuttal to this nonsense but SPB makes the effort to point out the blatant hypocrisy from these numbnuts:
The more we hear from prominent USC officials, the more I’m convinced that the NCAA absolutely nailed the proper punishment of the Trojans. Clearly, there was a disregard for NCAA rules within the sports programs and administration in the past. And in the case of Garrett and Larson, it appears that attitude hasn’t changed.
What’s lost on USC officials and former members of the program is that because Bush and O.J. Mayo were such high profile athletes, the school is held to a higher standard in policing their activities.
It’s exactly the same thing as tax returns of political candidates being scrutinized with a microscopic.
With the trappings fame and celebrity comes added responsibility.
By denying that, USC reps are being intellectually dishonest.
SPB should know better. It is a little too much to expect any kind of intellectual reflections from anyone officially associated with southern cons.
Good luck with that little appeal Trogans.
