Patrick summarizes the O.J. Mayo feeding frenzy over at Thirty-Five Seconds with his customary flair. The O.J. Mayo story happened at USC, the same school that had Reggie Bush...who took illegal benefits during his time at USC...perhaps if we could just make a tenuous, unsupported connection between the two...and then connect them via AN IMAGINARY REGULATORY LEVIATHAN RAINING HELL onto the university for its transgressions...well, then we'd have ourselves some columns, wouldn't we?
At least Plaschke has the sense to put it on Mike Garrett and not call for some kind of symbolic stoning of USC. (Pete Caroll, buried to his neck and surrounded by villagers with intent stares and rocks in their hands. "It's not fair! I am not jacked about this!")
