Pete Carroll's Real Skill

From ESPN: USC Gets 2-Year Ban.

The USC football program will receive two-year postseason ban, a reduction in scholarships and a forfeiture of wins from at least the 2004 season when the NCAA releases it sanctions on Thursday, a source told ESPN's Shelley Smith.

The school's football team is under investigation for its dealing with Heisman Trophy-winning running back Reggie Bush, who played at the school from 2003-05. If Bush is found retroactively ineligible, the Heisman Trust could strip him of his 2005 award.

As a USC Alum and season-ticket holder, I'm going on record by saying "F--K ME!" Reggie Bush was as electrifying to watch as any player I've seen live. (His game against Fresno State featured a Physics-defying full stop that could have been in the Matrix).

But now, I hope Kardashian gave him a "friend that never leaves." And I ain't talking about a Schnauzer.

Two years with no bowls? I might as well root for the Bruins.

So no Emerald Bowl this year? Darn.

Surprised there's nothing about the Flyers.


Yes, let it burn, Delino, let it burn.

Greased poles,anyone?

I'm so upset about SC, I might not stop smiling. Who needs to cheat?

Now is as good a time as any to hop back off the band wagon Delino. Pete Carroll's stench will linger for 2 more years.

Isn't Kim Kardashian herself a friend that never leaves?

A Delino said...

@MR. LASF - I will find you.

@Hong - Considering how much tuition I spent at SC, I don't think it's a bandwagon as much as a Stretch Hummer. Something tells me the stadium will be a lot less full this season.

@Sax - When Reggie Bush broke up with Kardashian, my take was "Why marry a Kardashian when you can NOT marry a Kardashian." And most of her best work is available for anyone with a modem.

If it makes you feel any better, I can commiserate with you about SC.

But not with the Flyers. Who lost. In OT. Enjoy.

I'm glad your LA Kings enjoyed such a relaxing few weeks of not being anywhere near a Stanley Cup. Again

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Yeah, because what you went through was a helluva lot better.

Can't win it if you don't make the finals.

/Ducks!

Go Bears!

I think Reggie Bush feels an ache-clap coming on.

I am shocked, shocked I say to find out that USC was cheating. It's so unlike them.

A Delino said...

The second Carroll took the Seahawk gig, I assumed that something like this was coming.

How shitty must it feel to be an Auburn fan? Not invited to the party when you should have been and then seeing an illegitimate team stole your chance at a National Championship. Tommy Tuberville should kick Reggie Bush and Pete Carroll square in the balls. Scum bag extraordinaire.
