    I think they thought it was expected after the football players got in a locker room brawl after their bowl loss.

    That's what this story is really about... just getting back on topic.

    Fine, I realized it prevented me from other jokes down the line so I edited. I hope you're happy Dallas.

    If it's their starter, it's going to cost him some major bucks. He is a borderline lottery pick.

    But whatever, what else is there to do in Spokane? It's like spending the night in Laramie.

    Surprised this hasn't gotten more attention. From the second story we are looking at some serious charges. Would it be possible that USC may end up going into the tourney with multiple players suspended.

    Yes I have total faith in the PAC 12 to punish these guys. They always come through after games to correct players and officials.

    If true, my question is why the hell they were there? I know football plays and then gets the hell out immediately afterward. Would make sense if it were the Thursday night before the next game, but makes absolutely no sense in this instance. Why have the team stay in Pullman, win or lose, when there is nothing for them except trouble?

    It was a late afternoon game and after doing the media thing and getting the bus loaded and driving an hour and a half to Spokane, there were probably no more flights. Why they don't have a curfew, I don't know.

    I can only guess their flight to and from LA went through there rather than Pullman. Plus, maybe they thought booking the team hotel outside the college town of their conference opponent would keep them from being antagonized by anyone and prevent a fight from ensuing. A wager they lost.

    Yeah. Guessing that USC didn't do charter flights for this one.

    And if the reports are true - that there were drunk USC players who punched a couple women and then bragged about it at the next bar to instigate another fight - then we'll likely see them kicked off the team. A university cannot have guys who do that represent the program.

    Me too, just what is "anti-Spokane rhetoric?" "This place is no Boise." "Billings has way hotter chicks." "The bars in Elko are so much better than in Spokane."

    Also wondering if the interim HC made a huge miscalculation of letting the team celebrate a bit after the final game of the year - thinking that if it happened in Spokane it would be away from the media microscope of LA.

    Since the coach knew he wasn't going to be back next year, I hear he held a "going away" party for his players at a local concert venue.

    Have you forgotten that we used to be in a conference with a certain team in red. For that matter some of the USC history makes me question this statement.

    The tolerance level for some schools depends a lot on "Can they play?"

    Dedmon has a crazy story. He was raised as a Christian Scientist, or one of the weirder Christian denominations. His mother wouldn't let him play sports because he would be "submitting to a higher authority." He finally rebelled around his senior year of HS, and tried out for a team. The coach asked him to do the "Mikan Drill", a basic drill common to all big men, and he had no idea what it was. Someone got him in to a Juco, and he kept getting better and better and ended up at USC. He went from not playing at all to being a borderline lottery pick in four years. I guess he rebelled a bit against his values.

    There's a long story about him somewhere - maybe Sports Illustrated. I'll see if I can find it.

    Wonder why the national sports media hasn't mentioned this story ... since there seems to be something to it with that tweet from USC Athletics.

    I'd rep this if I weren't in tapatalk. The subtlety of this post is fantastic. Somebody hit him.
