Sorry if this has been posted, but saw this and couldn't believe a coach would take a player back after something like this, for one. And if that's not bad enough, then he takes a scholarship away from a walk-on that has been busted his butt off after the other player is released from a 1 year jail sentence. How on earth does a coach even come close to explaining this to a walk-on with a straight face? Nevermind....I'm sure Lane had the waterboy tell him that he lost his scholarhip and didn't have the guts to do it himself.

That's okay, look at what the team is doing on the field.
You cannot argue with results.
Give him a break they all do it.
Any more defenses SC fans?
Lane's an ass. He's also a terrible coach. Great recruiter sure (as if SoCal wasn't easy enough to attract recruits to), but that team isn't making it undefeated, and will never win everything with him at the helm.
Kiffin's a scumbag, and it will come back to haunt USC.
If I were a walk-on, I sure as hell wouldn't want to go to a place that doesn't respect my position at all. Sure, walk-ons are the low men on the totem pole, but they're still very valuable members of any football team, and with the scholarship reductions, Kiffin NEEDS his walk-ons to be happy and willing to contribute. A few injuries and the team suddenly doesn't even have enough players at a given position to field a team.
Pretty much a "yep" from me!
I agree the kid deserves a second chance but USC should have brought him back as a walk-on, not on scholarship.
