Well said Swamper, well said. Bruins have been dealing with TrOJan shenanigans and egotism since way back in the seventies, when SC invented a thing called Student Body Right and started to think their smelly shyt didn't stink.<quoted text>
eVERY UNIVERSITY HAS COLLEGE PLAYERS THAT DO UNDESIRABLE THINGS, BUT WHEN A SCHOOL HAS HABITUAL IRREGULARTIES HAPPENING OVER AND OVER AND OVER IT FINALLY GETS TO A POINT WHERE THE NATIONAL MEDIA STARTS GIVING THE SCHOOL NICKNAMES... LIKE THE UNIVERSITY OF STUPID CLOWNS.
IT NEVER FEELS GOOD WHEN YOU HAVE A SOCIAL FIGURE FROM YOUR ALMA MATER DO SOMETHING STUPID OR WORSE, AN BELIEVE ME WE BOTH KNOW WITH O.J. SIMPSON AND AARON HERNANDEZ TO ACCOUNT FOR... NOT GOOD, NOT GOOD AT ALL!
GO GATORS - SEC FOOTBALL RULES!
Then they brought in high profile, non-academic athletes (the murderer Simpson, Anthony Davis, Charles "Trash Can Lid" White, etc) and the era of arrogance began and has never stopped!!! When they won regularly, the goody-two shoes Souther California suburbanites jumped on the bandwagon faster than a three hour sale at Macy's. They rode it for all it was worth and proclaimed foolish things like USC is the NFL team of L.A. and nonsense like that.
Now there may have been a few subtle periods here and there, but especially starting with Hollywood Carroll (you know him, the Seahawk coach who has the most player suspensions/fines of any NFL team), the SC Condoms thought they were literally above the law!
It wasn't until the NCAA finally started to improve their conceit-control riot gear and step up policing University "imperfections" and that is why today a lot of TrOJan fans bitch and complain that their team has reduced player sanctions and whoa is them. Then they boast "wait until we are back at full strength", but never admitting that just means back to their old ways of bringing in undesirable personalites of society..........but heck can they play football...Fight On!!!
As you stated, yes every University has problems, but the USC Condoms have the pleasure (of others) to be called "leader of the pack"!!! Heh heh heh heh heh heh
