Is this the end of the Josh Shaw story or is there more to come? The police still want to speak to him. He now has a big-time lawyer. The longer-term issue is how he gets his reputation back. And when he gets reinstated to the team. Some time around the week his ankles are healed, most likely, especially the way Pac-12 teams pass.
Here’s a recap of Shaw’s admission he lied about rescuing his nephew.
Matt Leinart, who now works for Fox Sports 1, gave his opinion on Josh Shaw’s situation: “It is embarrassing because USC just came off a really, really bad few years with the sanctions. They kind of cleared their name, [athletic director] Pat Haden has run a tight ship and has done a great job. They’ve flown under the radar this year and now this happens a week before the first game and it’s embarrassing.”
