Back to alleged cheaters across town. The Bush investigation is plodding along while he is too busy being a selfish jerk turning off his new coworkers. Meanwhile the mess Bush has left behind in South Central has not gone away. Yes we are not only one any more asking tough questions about lack of institutional control at ole U$C. Few days ago BlueGraySky's Dylan unloaded a double barrell shotgun blast Cheaty Peaty's corrupt program:
Dylan was commenting on Simer's column from the LA Times, which disclosed how Pom Pom injected himsel into Bush's selection of his NFL agent:
And how does Joel Segal go from being an agent suspended for one year by the NFL Players Assn. for using an assumed name and giving money to a Florida State player to representing Bush?
How did Ornstein work himself into position to spend so much time with Bush -- including hiring him as a paid intern -- without objections from Pete Carroll?
More importantly, what was Carroll thinking when he helped Ornstein select Segal? If he was trying to help Bush, then why didn't he do his homework? What was the point of trying to help Bush -- if he wasn't going to do his homework?
Initially, Ornstein interviewed seven agents, whittled that group to three and then those familiar with the process said Carroll interrupted, wanting a role in determining who would be Bush's agent. The interviewing began anew with Ornstein, Carroll and the Bush family meeting agents, and Segal emerging on top.
Carroll was working in the NFL as an assistant coach at the same time Segal and Ornstein were working in the league, and given his NFL connections, a few phone calls to check up on Segal and Ornstein might have been educational -- if he wasn't already aware of their backgrounds.
So if Chetey Petey and the Trojan administration were casting a blind eye to what was going on with Reggie Bush, should the Trojans pay a price for their (alleged) cheating? CFN's Richard Cirminiello says yes:
When you mess with the bull, you?re gonna get the horns (see The Breakfast Club). Playing the role of the bull is the NCAA, and they ought to be seeing red if the allegations involving Bush and the Trojan program wind up being accurate.
Of course Carroll is not going to give any one any kind of straight answers right now concerning what is going at Scandal Central. He has never given any answers providing any kind of accountablity for the pattern of transgressions at SC. Always eluding questions after questions that have come up concerning his lawless program during his three years. It is quite possible Pom Pom using the full force of U$C PR machine and freinds at the right places just may be able to sweep all the mess under that ketsup and mustard color rug at Heritage Hall once again. But the damage is done. SC already had a dirty reputation even before his arrival. But now after these last few years of Pom Pom it will forever be an asterisk in college football as Miami of the West.
