More on Mayo

As you might imagine, lots of second-day stories out there on the burgeoning O.J. Mayo mess at USC (and if you couldn’t see that this day would eventually come you are as delusional as Paula Abdul).
Anyway, here are some of the better ones I found:
— First is this commentary from our own Jerry Brewer who says USC should have known but didn’t want to know, which in my opinion is a common trait of most college sports scandals.
— Here’s a straight news story from the Orange County Register that makes it clear that having a job in the USC compliance office these days is probably as much fun as being John McLaren.
Jeff Goodman of Fox Sports makes the good point that this is an issue larger than just USC. And think about it. Would you have not been excited a year ago if O.J. Mayo was coming to your school?
Scott Wolf of the LA Daily News wonders if Mayo was worth the trouble. I think the answer is easy — no. USC could easily have been a first-round NCAA disappointment without him.
— Finally, the LA Times has a good look at the last player who Rodney Guillory got his hooks into — and it didn’t turn out well for Fresno State, a precedent that might want to worry USC fans.
