“The university strives to ensure compliance with NCAA rules.”

Ordinarily, I’d say stuff like this shows Southern Cal belongs in the SEC, except the coaches in our conference are generally more careful than that.

Rick Courtright, USC’s defensive quality control assistant from 2016 to 2018, said in the lawsuit he overheard graduate assistants Brett Arce and Austin Clark discuss working with defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast to pay two students with low-level positions in the program to take online classes for the graduate assistants.

The lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court said Courtright later witnessed Pendergast, who is named as a defendant in the complaint along with the school, hand an unspecified amount of cash to Clark.

C’mon, man, that’s what cutout bagmen are for.

    They should hire Jay Jacobs and the Chiz as consultants, or bagman control assistants. Or better yet, pat dye. Sure, dye would cost them a lot in pants that end up in the Venice canals, the Hollywood reservoir, or the pacific ocean, but sacrifices have to be made. The football gods apparently accept trousers.
