What Drop?

Those around the USC football program are a little astonished at reports quarterback Matt Leinart lost as much as $40 million by not turning pro a year ago.
What a lot of people forget is Leinart needed elbow surgery and also needed treatment for a sports hernia, that made workouts for pro teams almost impossible last spring.
“He wasn’t going to be the first guy drafted,” a USC source told me. “He didn’t fall. It’s just the media that thinks now he would be the first guy. That simply wasn’t the case.”
