USC Offers 4-Year Scholarship for FB and BK's (Rare)

USC Offers 4-Year Scholarship for FB and BK's (Rare) 


USC announced that we'll offer 4-year rides to our student-athletes in Football, Mens and Womens Basketball.   It's a solid step for the University to take in helping our athletes, though I think most people assume a player is on a 4-year ride.  It does help with a positive narrative in recruiting though.

Dude Haden is a clown.. Instead hiring a proven winner, he hired seven sark.. Instead of fighting for a better tv contract he accepts this garbage we're stick with.. I could go on and on.. It doesnt help with anything.

KABOOM!!!!! 


This is great news for all involved. USC once again demonstrating leadership and integrity. For all current and future Trojans this is how we Fight On. I wonder how many other schools all play catch-up to USC again.

Do you ever get tired of hating all the time?  Dude, sanctions are over, the team is recruiting well, and you have to come in here like you're some Wash Husky or FUCLA dude and bad mouth the team.  I said team, because Haden and Sark are heading this team.  It seems every year about a month before fall camp, this crap starts.  banghead

I think I'm finally getting the rules down.

I can bad mouth the coach and the AD, but I can't write STFU!

I guess I just misread the posted rules!

And we all know I'm nothing if I'm not about the rules!

Because it specfies revenue sports, am I to assume that non-revenue sports have this 4yr 'ride' already??

I just spoke with an attorney who is married to a compliance officer at a small east coast school.  This is a big deal as it does give the parents of these scholarship athletes some comfort in knowing that the scholarship is available for the full four years and is not necessarily tied to on field performance.  I applaud USC for taking the proactive step to initiate this move in the PAC-12.

But know this, if there is any recruiting advantage for doing this it will be short lived as others will jump on the band wagon quickly to neutralize the USC advantage, or so they think!!!!!!!!!!

Equally as important:

"Haden also reaffirmed the university's commitment to assist those scholarship student-athletes in good academic standing that have exhausted their intercollegiate eligibility to obtain their undergraduate degrees. USC has assisted more than 250 former student-athletes with undergraduate degree academic support over the last decade.  "

Knowing the university will support them getting their degree no matter what has to play well with the parents.

Kudos to Haden for this move.  This is a (another) leadership moment for USC.  I must give props to Haden.

Question, when Mora came in, didn't he trim his roster by getting rid of scholarship players that didn't meet his certain qualifications?   Now, if I was a parent, that would scare me to send my kid to FUCLA.

So the AD and the coaching staff are fair game?

What was I thinking?

I don't think that will be a problem at USC, Even though lacking scholarships, their talent pool is very deep, unlike FUCLA's.  You're speaking about a Coach that took over a 0-12 team.  Not a 10-3 team on heavy sanctions.

No, assumedly shouldn't be a problem at USC given the news yesterday which I think is overall the right thing. The point was that if you're going to question Mora's integrity and actions on it, you have to take a look at Sark's also.
