McFumble is a disgrace to the great USC. Why can't these poor bums just wait till they leave for the NFL?

And I love how he blames the media "You all ruined my life". Ha ha ha what a LOSER. No one drove the Sports Agent's car except him and his BABY MAMA.

No article mentioned Carroll knew Joe was driving this car. The Los Angeles Times article said coached walk by a car one day parked in front with flashers on. Are they suppose to watch these kids ever minute of the day? Was Pete suppose to go to Reggie's parents house prior to his enrollment and see how nice it was? This is getting ridiculous, I bet the staff barely has time to shyt everyday yet alone monitor 125 players as if they were teenage girls. It is very apparent that a few current/former players are/were greedy morons. Combine this with the fact that agents are pure scum. Another factor is that the media loves to have negative headlines about USC. For example, yesterday UCLA went through a tough day. Two players are ineligible and Hasiak went AWAL. USC had three players ineligible and its on the front page of ESPN.com . You could only find the UCLA story on Jon Gold's blog.

Last point, Jon Gold's Inside UCLA is a million times better than Scott Wolf's Inside USC. He updates it every few hours and it has great information. Maybe they should cut Scott and have Jon cover both teams.

And Joe is also the victim of a poorly monitored program who have gotten careless over the years...playing for a coach only cares about winning at any cost...Carroll could have nipped this in the butt a long time ago when he first learned that Joe was driving this vehicle, and he did not. Carroll should be taking the blame for this not Joe, he is the victim.

I am happy he is going to leave. A lot of hype and wasted talent. Plus the kid is just not very smart. I can't stand when they interview football players and they can't form a complete sentence. Pete did seem to have Joe in the Pete's pet club. It would be really ironic if CJ Gable comes back next year and is a stud. Joe won't do anything in the NFL, Reggie is a lot better and he hasn't done shyt.

Dude, what are you smokin'? Did Pete spurn your gay advances? Joe is dumb as a box of rocks. I have no idea how he managed to stay academically eligible for so long. These guys are constantly schooled in requirements. Joe thought he was smart enough to beat the system, or just didn't care.
One last thing, Joe will never make it as a pro.

Its ok Joe, within a few years you'll have made more money then I have during fifty years of work.
Just make sure you sign with an agent that will not rip you off! Don't blow it.

Why didn't McKnight just drive the Range Rover to San Fran? That's what Reggie would have done. What's that? Oh it's his girlfriend's car? Sure, it is... Typical Trojan booster crap. Cheat on,$C...

This Dodo won't make as much as an L.A. City garbage collector will in the next ten years. The NFL doesn't treat someone who suffers from fumblitis kindly. What do you think, this guy is another Jones-Drew? He's just another reggie bush.

Per the L.A times article, I think Pete did know about the car.

"On Nov. 25, the SUV was parked outside the entrance to USC's practice facility, its emergency lights flashing as players, coaches and athletic department personnel exited through the gate. Several coaches stopped to greet McKnight's girlfriend, who was seated in the passenger seat. McKnight came out of the locker room carrying his son on his shoulders, exchanged pleasantries with Coach Pete Carroll, who was walking with visitors, and made his way to the street where the Land Rover was parked."
