  • Make money y'all, make make money y'all.

    I feel bad that happened to Armond, but such is life. Bad things happen. Not USC's fault.

  • Why do I have a feeling there's more to it than this? I mean what if this is a case of abuse by Armstead. I don't know much, but when I seem it on tv, that was my first reaction "he's addicted", not that USC caused it. Sounds like he needs someone to blame

  • I think we should step back from this. Let it play out legally, just like we did with Stafon.

  • Assume you mean the AA case? If so I agree.

    I didn't see anything in the Torodol report re: legality but I could've missed it.

  • Yes.

  • The thing I really hate about this - USC fans sent OTL pages and pages of information to look into regarding the sanctions against USC, etc.

    They didn't touch it.

    But Armstead comes forward with dubious claims and they jump at it.

  • It was the lead story on World News Tonight last night at 11:30.

  • the interesting thing is that AA had his heard attack right before spring practices. Its not like he was taking it to get back into a game. So, if he was taking it in the offseason, I doubt the coaches were forcing him to take it.
