USC Morning Buzz

Ron Holmes, a former USC basketball player in the 1980′s who is better known as the father of ex-UCLA star Shabazz Muhammad, was indicted Thursday for on federal bank fraud and conspiracy charges, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The indictment said Holmes and his partners obtained “mortgage loans by fraudulent means to buy houses,” from 2006 to 2009, the paper reported. The U.S. attorney’s office wants to recover $2.5 million from Holmes.

At the end of the day, it’s probably better Muhammad did not attend USC.

    wolfman, lt goes against every fiber of my being to disagree with you….but how can you say it was better he did not attend Southern Cal??

    this has nothing to do with Shazzzam, and he probably leads Southern Cal to the NCAA or at least the NIT!!! UCLA is not besmirched by a player’s parent’s malfeasance!!

    now, if the Dad used Shazzzzam in some illicit way to obtain financial gain, that would be different, a-la Mr Bush and Lake, then you could say that!!

    wolfman, this comment could create a rift between you and the Cadre, i am working the phones already on damage control….i just hope Yoda doesn’t hear about this when he’s drinking…then not even me and Thai together could not stop him from turning the Daily News into a car wash!!!

      This is absurd…SHAZZZZZZAM really has nothing to do with this…..Isn’t it more significant (OBVIOUS) that Mr. Holmes is a former basketball player at SCUM? “Another one bites the dust”.
      fit on torgans!

        ShaaaaBoom was the prefect fit foe fucla. Poor dad was influenced by the punk and the sleezy recruiting tactics used by the cubbies. How can a thug do such a thing to his daddy? Just another in the line of the filthy Woodie tradition. Sad.

            Ronnie was an outstanding citizen until the Woodie slim recruiting started on his kid, who was in elementary school, and put pop’s head in a spin. If only he would have stayed away from the dark side of Westwood Tech. Just glad he didn’t hook up with the coaching burglary crew the cubbies formed.

        When you post under different names, you should at least vary the writing style.

      According to the NCAA, it seems that a school CAN be besmirched by a player’s parent’s malfeasance.
