NCAA punishes USC - Reggie Bush, OJ Mayo, Dwayne Jarrett, Joe McKnight investigation

Discussion in 'College Football' started by CleveBucks, Apr 23, 2006.

  1. you cant capitalize on your own fame.

    on the car thing that was what came up in part of the maurice thing. it varies by state. i believe in the state of ohio maurice was ok b/c it was just considered a test drive.

    lines are blurry, vauge, based on prior cases and scenarios and often hard to distguinsish without all the facts, usually all the facts are not released to the general public.

    At least SD isn't as bad as here...you won't find a decent 3,000 sq ft house for $750,000 on Oahu, and that's if you can even find one in the first place.

    It's looking more and more suspicious for Mr. Bush...

    Is there a formula to this? Recent national champion, looks a bit weaker and not likely to repeat. Whiff of a scandal? Hey, this is real news, let's dig!

    I must admit that is the worst part of this whole deal. The Entertainment and whatever dirt we can dig up network seems to thrive on bringing down programs at their zenith - oftentimes without real investigative journalism on their part.

    We know they gave Columbus the treatment, you can with reasonable accuracy predict that this story will be embellished with all and sundry relevant or unrelated particulars ...

    We should start a poll to predict in which order Espn makes reference to

    A -- The other hidden story behind the Bush story
    B -- Papadakis' Tavern
    C -- PC and his famous flying jet
    D -- "Were other Trojans on the take" Which assertive headline will be accompanied by the flimsiest of conjecture, backed up by reams of blank paper.
    E -- Other - fill in the blank.
     
  7. when our investigation went on i believe it was every team since tenn had undergone an investigation...

    common multiple of success or zealous digging?

    right, the markets are completly opposite.. yes i do agree with you and i wouldn't trust my numbers besides the average price in central ohio, just estimations (im suprised tg didnt spend his lunch period looking up the exact amounts and correcting me:biggrin: )

    The biggest thing for someone looking at this to know about the prices:
    in cali 750,000 gets you about 3,000 sq ft (in this case)
    in columbus (or powell in the case of the house you used as an example) 750,000 gets you nearly 5,000 sq ft, excluding the 2,000 sq ft finished basement

    I suppose its a mix of probable scandal and the newsworthiness of a big program. USC has bee portrayed as squeaky clean and I suppose that makes something like this more newsworthy.

    When you have a story that's spreading like wildfire, like this one, the lack of transparency about who paid the rent and whether it was market related is like dry tinder. It really gets it going.

    In our case, it was Clarett making wild accusations. In this case, Bush's silence may do the same for USC.

    If Bush had said, "look, the house cost $750,00 and houses like that rent for about $5000 a month and that's what we paid" this would be all over, provided that journalists could work out that they earned enough to pay this. But the alleged cars, the house, like Mili said, it keeps looking more suspicious.

    JWins is right, we can talk about this. I think what is important on BP is that we don't rush to judge Bush, his family, or USC. One thing is certain, the truth will out now that this is exposed to this degree.

    don't forget any disgruntled former Trojans that will have their words distorted and taken out of context.

    methomps.....who are the likely candidates to fill this role?

    The most disgruntled Trojan was (I believe) Travis Claridge, but he passed away recently. Mike Williams has tendency to talk a whole lot of dumb.
