In Columbia, they’re dumb, but they mean well.

Apparently, South Carolina’s defense to the numerous (and serious) NCAA rules violations outlined in its own 111-page report boils down to “don’t hate us ’cause we’re stupid”.

    The irony is the stupid response is brilliant.

    I love that they don’t want to reneg on any offers they have out there currently. An honorable school like USCe does not reneg on offers. Well, at least not when they are looking down the barrel of NCAA sanctions. Also funny they reserve the right to adjust the 2012-13 numbers. In other words, let us see who we get commitments from and we’ll get back to you. They also request the NCAA to keep a “close eye on the program.” for violations committed in 2009… Kind of like the NCAA keeping an eye on them from 2005-2008. So they basically committed major violations the very first year the NCAA packed up and left town.

    Lastly, I motion you add “good faith error in judgement” to the lexicon. That’s something I’m going to circle back around next time I knowingly and intentionally cheat to get ahea and then get caught.
    Oh, one more thing: I want all you fucking retarded Dawgs fans out there who bitched and moaned about USCe overtaking us in the East as supporting evidence to fire Mark Richt to raise your hand and leave the building.

      …let us see who we get commitments from and we’ll get back to you.

      Not surprised USC is taking that attitude. Isn’t that pretty much what Spurrier tells every commit with fewer than 4 stars?

      “I want all you fucking retarded Dawgs fans out there who bitched and moaned about USCe overtaking us in the East as supporting evidence to fire Mark Richt to raise your hand and leave the building.” ……and shut down your negative blog and turn in your Dawg card, and be forced to attend all Tech home games for one season to increase your awareness of what you got BEFORE a new Dawg card is issued. Anyone else got anything they want to add to that?
      just sayin’

    OK. We will hate them because they are the “Cocks.

  3. Bad m

    Well, Senator, you got the first point right.

    Jenny is still employed because she’s got written/electronic evidence stored in a safe place.

    • Mayor of Dawgtown

      Yep, that should solve the problem. Demote a mid-level Athletics Department employee and cut her salary $10,000. Do nothing to the (purposely?) neglectful HC and AD or University President that fostered the environment that allowed the violations to occur, though.

    “When the compliance office compared the hotel’s lease terms to other furnished apartments in the area, “it did not consider the rates the hotel previously charged the university for extended stay guests,” USC wrote in its response”

    So your compliance director compared the lease terms offered by The Whitney with leases at Del Boca Vista Phase Five and The Players Club instead of comparing the terms to other leases AT THE WHITNEY?!?

    Brilliant! Can I get that job?

    I’m kinda surprised they didn’t blame the Chicken Curse.

  7. Russ

    So, they will self-impose a reduction in scholarships, unless they need them, and then they’ll do it when it’s convenient?

    • Ubiquitous GA Alum

      Kind of how the Head Cock handles player suspensions … Screw up in the spring/summer/fall and we’ll hold you out of the Homecoming game against Directional U.

      • The Lone Stranger

        Homecoming game! That would be so very penal — the Visor will find it in his conscience to sit scofflaws only for Spring Games, mostly.

  8. Go Dawgs!

    So THAT’S how Spurrier fixed South Carolina football. He figured out that the NCAA wasn’t really smacking anyone else anymore, so go ahead and cheat with them!

    • Mayor of Dawgtown

      Totally understandable when one observes what has been going on at Auburn (and I would argue at Bama, too) for years.

  9. Jason Marcus

    Holy Shittake how do you get any lawyering done? Your superque er friends are heading over to Joe’s on juniper later. You should join them for their weekly gangbang, f@g.

  10. Derek

    I would have went with the “if we were cheaters we would have won something by now” defense.

    • Puffdawg

      Keep up Derek, we all know that would be a complete lie. A victory in their upcoming bowl game will be an unprecedented run of success for them, worthy of SEC Championship SEC East Championship Sugar Bowl Championship Cap One Bowl Game Championship rings. I mean, 11 wins in one season!!!! OMG!!!!!!!!! That’s like twice than normal!

      • Devil's Advocate

        I believe UGA did the same thing in 2004 for the Cap One bowl.

        Maybe you should brush up on your Dawg history.

        • Puffdawg

          First, I don’t recall the Dawgs getting rings for that. Could you get me a link to back up that claim? Can’t find anything on google supporting.

          Secondly, what relevance does that have to the point at hand. Derek claims they haven’t had success, and I claim clearly they have, if only by their own pathetic standards.

          If by brushing up on my Dawg history you mean counting the number of SEC, SEC East, and Sugar Bowl championships we have, I’m happy to oblige. I can’t even take a decent shit in the time it takes to recount USCe’s experience on that front.

          • Devil's Advocate

            I apologzie. That was after your 1992 season. UGA made rings for their citrus bowl win against Ohio State. For what it’s worth, UGA finished 10-2. Exactly where USC stands right now.


            The relevance to my remark is you play down the rings in your statement when you cross out three things that USC didn’t get this year (SEC, SEC East, & Sugar Bowl).

            I look forward to the USC/UGA game next year. I hope it’s a good a game. Now please beat MSU.

          • Go Dawgs!

            Georgia 100% did get rings for the 2005 Capital One Bowl after the 2004 season. I know this because I was on the field at G-Day before the ’05 season when they handed them out.

    SC sounds a lot like GT when they pled ignorance about being unable to interpret the NCAA’s math. They really need to employ people not educated at their institutions to advise them.

    • Puffdawg

      Shorter GT officials: “By, ‘Don’t alert the people we intend to interview we are about to interview them,’ we didn’t know you meant, ‘Don’t alert the people we intend to interview we are about to interview them.'”

      A simple miscommunication. I’m still pissed those morons got our 2009 ACC Championship taken away.

  12. AusDawg85

    Clearly the most bullet-proof and best defense to any NCAA inquiry is…”Oops”. Wish we’d thought of that with AJ.

  13. Dog in Fla

    “So that’s the gist of USC’s response today. We’ll see what the NCAA thinks in February. Joining Spurrier, Pastides and Hyman on the trip will be Boynton, Frye, Mangus and Styles.”

    Speculation is that they’re taking Mangus and the other reprimanded coaches to use them as exhibits to bolster the “don’t hate us ’cause we’re stupid” line of reasoning at the infractions hearing in Los Angeles.
