USC + OSU = Cheaters

One of our key contributors mentioned Ohio State was in the same neighborhood as USC when it comes to cheating. I thanked him for cannon fodder, as well as getting me thinking about the “Haterade” category. As much as I dislike OSU, I can’t STAND USC.

Reggie Bush’s parents got paid, but USC eventually got caught as cheaters. In the meantime, Ohio State is bleeding because their players are taking money from anyone and everyone. In a moment, we’ll talk about tattoos and other dumb stuff.

Ohio State was cheating. Well, maybe not Ohio State, but their players sure were. Maurice Clarett was just an early symptom.

If your school’s boosters want to cheat, they will find some way to get into the players pockets.

My colleague Cliff once mentioned the facts about cheating in college sports.

He stated “So what?”

You win a national title, you get paid. So what if you’re stripped of it five years later? No one cares. You still have rings, IF your players haven’t sold them by then. Your players still have their trophies…IF they haven’t been stripped of those as well. Your school sells Cam Newton gear,  National Championship gear and that’s all that matters. Who cares about the rest of the nonsense?

Stripping a school of a title is like steroids cheating in baseball: If you get a player who cheats on one team, do you strip them of their title and then strip another team of their titles too? Cheating in sports is endemic.

And speaking of cheating and getting paid, what about the moronic reasons these guys pick to get their cheat on? Tattoos? Isn’t that ridiculous? That’s like going outside in the dark and painting a sign on your house that says “I’m a freaking moron”, with the thought that no one can see it because its dark. When these guys reach 50 or 60, what are they going to look like all tatted up? I’m sure they’ll look great.

Good thing Barkley didn’t do that. That tat would be all stretched out. Too funny.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
