USC tailback-wide receiver George Farmer is academically ineligible and will not be able to participate in spring practice, according to sources. It is conceivable Farmer could get a grade changed to improve his status but as of right now he will not be able to practice.
If he cannot participate in spring practice, it would be a costly blow because Farmer figured to play a prominent role in the spring with tailback Amir Carlisle, wide receiver Brice Butler and wide receiver Kyle Prater no longer on the roster.

    Hey Scott…didn’t you read the OC Register’s article from yesterday stating that Coach Kiffin was moving him “BACK” to a receiver position? I did, so this seems like some new news… academically ineligible…to what position he might play.

  • Ibc trojan

    Uh-oh…Speghetti-O!!!

  • spedjones

    given the very tough academic standards at SC, why don’t I think it’ll be an issue for old George to get that grade changed?

  • The Monopoly Is Over Here

    King George will be fine… You’ll see him out there smoking DB’s this spring while i’m on the sideline in my cardinal pants smoking bruin blood cake from my pipe…

  • wake6830

    You are wrong. Care to retract?

  • spedjones

    haha, they got it changed already? Hayden: Hey prof, George needs a C in this here dance class. Prof: but he’s dumb as a rock. Hayden: Do it. Prof: Yes sir.

  • Jethro Sabbath

    Three words sped: Billy Don Jackson

  • How does Scott Wolf keep his job?

    Who is the real dummy? I’m thinking it spedjones, who does not like USC, yet spends his days and nights posting his usual drivel on a USC blog.

  • USC – 714

    I just read on another website that this information about Farmer is WRONG, and the he in fact IS eligible for Spring Ball. Dont know who to really believe now…

  • spedjones

    LOL Jethro. Three more words: wasn’t born yet. But in the end, UCLA always has the ultimate trump card anyway: O.J. Simpson.

  • dtksr1

    Whether George is eligible or not, Haden is responsible for the athletes to get proper tudoring for classes taken. He is also supposed to get reports when an scholarship student is not doing the work necessary to keep eligible.

  • spedjones

    “tudoring” and “an scholarship player”… classic Trogan-speak.

  • USC – 714

    Hey SpedShit…Hanicapped Parking Scandal lol

    Oh yeah…and 50-0. Do better little man.

  • SDPHIL

    Hey sped. We can always go with Darryl Henley. He is a fine individual.

  • W.E.B. Dupree

    Sped, don’t forget that USC was founded by Methodists. The Methodist church has its roots in the Church of England. Hence, the Tudoring was quite necessary and proper.

  • The Monopoly Is Over Here

    W.E.B. I see what you did there…

  • Jethro Sabbath

    Very nice W.E.B.

  • spedjones

    Sorry Phil, but you’ve got nothin’ that trumps an OJ.

    And WEB, it was a good shot, but there was an approximate 200 year spread between the end of the Tudors and the launch of the Methodist movement in England. If there is still Tudorning going on at SC, that may be the reason Mr. Farmer finds himself in the mess he’s in.

  • wrong

    It seems Mr. Wolf is the one that is academically ineligible.

  • dcard1097

    UCLA has a dipshit named “spedjones” as a fan. Now THAT trumps anything lol

  • http://www.yahoo.com NOBS MOMMY

    Are you f’g kidding me? you mean there’s someone out there dumber than my son? C’mon fellas, academically ineligible? really? This is USC, not Harvard or UCLA for God’s sake!

  • Evil Robot

    I always find it very amusing when all the Bruin fans come out of the woodwork to take on an air of academic superiority and call SC players dummies after someone is declared academically ineligible, when those same players were offered scholarships by UCLA. Maybe if their team could get over .500 Markeith Ambles would be sporting a Brewins jersey.

  • SDPHIL

    Sped, I don’t back OJ but having a pregnant girl shot and putting a hit on a judge seems a bit overboard also. Don’t you think?

  • http://www.yahoo.com NOBS MOMMY

    Play nice boys, don’t mess with them Bruin boys, and stop mentioning events that took place 4 decades ago with Billy Don Jackson, or Handicapped plates scandal that took place 2 decades ago, or mention Darryl Henley who turned out to be a loser drug dealer 15 years after he left UCLA.

    Otherwise, the UCLA fans will start pointing out embarrassing arrests to our Trojans while they WERE ACTIVE players on our roster. I mean, do we really need some bRuin fan to point out USC had 5 roster players arrested and accused of RAPE? or 2 players arrested for armed robbery? 1 player for possesion of a fire-arm? 1 for soliciting sex from a undercover LAPD officer? 1 for aggravated assault? multiple DUIS to several of our players? – all these took place while active members of our team – NOT former players.

    The previous list does not include many arrests to players once they left the program such as Mitch Mustain for possesion of drugs; or Keyshawn Johnson for attempting to hire a hit man to kill his ex-wife and her lover, after he discovered she was cheating on him; or Rey Mauluga for DUI while playing in the NFL, or Lofa Tatupu for DUI; or Darrell Russell for beating up his wife; or Will Poohle, going burserk and threating to kill two magicians at a Las Vegas Hotel; and many more arrests.

    So once again boys, no need to pretend fUCLA bRuins have any street cred, or that they thug like our boys. We all know fUCLA athletes are as close to altar boys as you can get.

  • W.E.B. Dupree

    Nobs’ Mommy, to save yourself some time, why not just do a google search for BruinRob’s lengthy list of allegations against USC players, and then copy and paste?

    Hint: Google “bruinrob” and “Dwayne Jarred”, and you will find the list. Be careful not to spell it correctly!

  • spedjones

    maybe he just needs a bit of Tudoring.

  • Jon

    “or mention Darryl Henley who turned out to be a loser drug dealer 15 years after he left UCLA.”

    So you’ll never again mention a certain someone who turned out to be a loser murderer 30 years after he left USC?

  • Nabob

    maybe spedjones needs to get laid

  • Jon

    UCLA does have USC beat in recent history. With laptop-boy and the Serbian street-brawler on the basketball team, plus purse thieves on the football team.

    Oh, and the UC Regents and a UCLA professor have been charged with felonies in connection with the death of a UCLA lab assistant.

    Those fUCLA bRuins have a pretty impressive rap sheet of their own.

  • Jethro Sabbath

    W.E.B..

    I believe all of BruinRob’s material can be found on NOB’S MOMMY’S very own computer. Just a hunch.

  • LAWYER JOHN

    Uuuuh, actually, O.J. last played for SC on January 1, 1969, which is now over 43 years.

    So no wonder ucklans like to bring his name up to show that ucklans’ footballers are more moral than SC’s.

    Truth be told, footballers cannot be compared to the general academic population. For one, they are mostly black, which right there places them in a striking minority.

    Second, the rules are bent to allow athletes in to college, many of whom would not otherwise qualify.

    Third, most athletes good enough to obtain athletic scholarships at a major university figure they will make millions at the pro level, and are thus not as academically motivated as the balance of the student body.

    Fourth, the majority of these young men come in from disadvantaged families, schools, and neighborhoods, and are thus prime candidates for getting into trouble

    Conclusion: comparing athletes, especially footballers and basketballers to the general academic population is, generally speaking, like comparing oranges to apples. They’s different, man.

  • SCTuro

    At least he didnt usr randal carroll’s tutor

  • http://http:://www.yahoo.com BruinRob

    @Jon really? you wanna step outside of the box and point out other stuff not related to football? I don’t think you wanna go there…but let me know if you do. LMAO
    @Lawyer John, he OJ may have played in 1969, but he slashed two throats 18 years ago…”rules are bent to allow athletes in to college” really? NAHHHH, maybe USC, and Miami U do that, not Notre Dame, not Stanford, not UCLA. Take Shaw, your new commit, UCLA had him already penciled in pending his academic admission tests, which he failed, and USC took him…so please don’t give that crap about schools bending – you meant, USC bending the rules.

  • USC owns the Rose Bowl

    ^he’ll be back to normal soon enough.
    (___*___)

  • Nabob

    I remember “BruinRob” in late December posting that he was done with this blog and that he was not going to come back. Well that didnt last too long lol. He’s obviously not a man of his word. Relapse is bad.

  • mownyc

    Bruin Rob,

    “At the other end of the spectrum, according to the survey of 19 Western public institutions, were UCLA and San Diego State. Seventy percent of scholarship athletes at UCLA over the previous three years were special admits; for SDSU, that figure was 64.5 percent.
    By contrast, the percentage of special admits for the general student body is far lower: about 3 percent at UCLA and 20 percent at SDSU.
    In order to be competitive in Division I-A athletics, you’re going to have to have some flexibility compared to your normal admission policy, UCLA Assistant Vice Chancellor Tom Lifka said. We need those students if we’re going to be competitive in certain sports.

    Wow! Middle School debate team recruits abound. All strong candidates except on the subject of CFB.
