ahhh, it appears that the last minute "announcement" of one of the coaches on u$c's staff resigning is really, much ado about something.... Looks like the glorified community college across town, and Captain Kiffy, may have some more explaining to do...Hmm I wonder where all those "Talented" LA Times sports journalists are on this...haha, I don't think I could keep a straight face through that thought.
Despite getting dinged with a 2 year bowl ban, loss of 30 scholarships, and 4 years of probation, looks like southern cal may still be up to their old shenanigans.
Dillon Baxter has been suspended indefinitely after accepting a golf cart ride from a NFLPA-certified agent, and current student, Teague Egan. On his company's website, his bio describes how he has "befriended many athletes on the USC football team". southern cal has sent the NCAA an appeal to get Baxter reinstated, claiming they acted "proactively and quickly". LOL.
Just ICYMI Hello Kiffin left Baxter behind in LA for Southern Cal's Oregon State trip "while a compliance issue" is "being sorted out." Per the Trojan Times "Baxter accepted a ride in a golf cart on campus, only to find out later that one of the people in the cart might be a sports agent."

The latest jab was thrown by USC defensive coordinator Ed Orgeron on Monday in front of Trojan boosters. According to our Randy Youngman, Orgeron grabbed the microphone while a UCLA-USC ticket package was being auctioned, and said:
"The guy across town has been talking too much smack since Coach Kiffin came to town," Orgeron said. "We’ve got to silence him."
CRN must really have gotten under their skin. Note this is not the first time Ogre has been talking smack about UCLA. He talked all kinds of smack before the Tennessee game last season before getting beat on national TV. I hope the clown keeps talking.
