The whole LenDale White controversy started near the end of yesterday’s game when witnesses said White got into an argument with Pat Haden. Why?

Several sources told me Haden confronted White over his critical comments via twitter during the Arizona game about defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox. White became aggravated by Haden’s remarks and told the athletic director he was not on his “pay roll,” and “All i said was what people were thinking.”

Haden reportedly told White he needed to support the program better and White questioned Haden’s college football achievements.

Another LenDale White Update

I’m not sure why LenDale White was upset with Pat Haden. But I know the second confrontation after the game occurred when White wanted to say hi to Steve Sarksian at his press conference. White did not have a credential to enter the press conference that is when the LAPD and security tried to escort him away and he became upset.

Discuss The Game

Well, passing was not a problem today. But does the fact it was Colorado make this a false-stat game? Or is it a sign of the offense’s future? USC quarterbacks have now thrown six-or-more TD passes in three of past four games against Colorado, so maybe the Trojans should circle next season’s encounter today.
