The Southern California Trojans have been lying for years about the Reggie Bush affair… and they get to play for Championships. Did I miss something?” No my friend you did...

Ladies and Gentlemen – We have a serious problem in this country… No, not that one, the “other” serious one…. No not that serious one, the “other” serious one… I know this is going to bruise some feelings but this has to be addressed….

I am sure by now that most University of Georgia Bulldog Coaches, Players and Fans… know what it feels like to be Jodie Foster in the “Accused”. That was a “celebration” penalty?
