USC Statement On Redd

Here is USC athletic director Pat Haden’s full statement on the transfer of Penn State tailback Silas Redd:
“We welcome Silas Redd to the Trojan Family. He is an outstanding student and athlete. When the NCAA presented the option to transfer, Silas and his family put a lot of thought and research into making this decision.
“At USC, we’ve seen both sides of this issue, having lost a number of players to transfer due to our NCAA sanctions in 2010. But Lane Kiffin and his coaches would not be doing their job if they did not try to improve our team every single day. There is a specific need here for a player like Silas Redd, so Lane and our coaches recruited him within the guidelines set up in this instance by the NCAA.”

    Capper: “I was a big Pu$$y and didn’t fight the NCAA. But my status on TV went UP! So who cares? Penn St., I hope you have bigger balls than I did. BUT, I’m getting paid big bucks and getting my little buddy a job in the future! So what the heck?”
