In the past decade when USC had numerous football players arrested and other off the field issues, many in the media started referring to USC as “the new Miami” or “the Miami of the West” for what was perceived as an out of control program. Is it not great for Miami to have come storming back to reclaim their crown that they held so prominently in the 1980s and 1990s when their players would consistently be arrested, the team would enter the stadium wearing army fatigues, and they earned the national nickname of “Thug U”? Has the natural order of college athletics been restored with Miami back to their rightful place?
A: The least they could have done is win a few national titles with all that cheating.

In regards to whats going on in Miami their still has to be other ways SC can get its sanctions reduced right? Pat Hadens comments on 710 Espn radio kinda showed that he’s not giving up and is gonna find a way to get the sanctions reduced? Whats your take on this? Is their still a way and do you think it will happen?
A: Unfortunately this question was asked before Max Nikias made his statement. But it’s a relevant question because it raises this issue: Why did Haden sound sort of combatic and then Nikias offered his “no mas” statement? Did USC legitimately examine the issue and decide it had no options? Or did it just decide to sweep things under the rug?
