Apartmentgate: Do you have 10 grand to spare?
In USC's scandal du jour, The L.A. Times reports that USC receiver Dwayne Jarrett received benefits from a USC booster (Matt Lienart's father) in the amount of $1300 each and every month for the past year. The money supposedly went to pay for a super-luxurious apartment in Los Angeles.
Unlike Reggie's parents, Matt's dad has the "checks and money orders to prove it." At least the NCAA won't have to waste its resources looking.
Needless to say, USC fans are already defending this situation, saying that it's ordinary for a parent to give his son's friends over $10,000. The LSUoverUSC Blog team is sympathetic to these excuses. After all, it is California, where security guards can afford to live in $800,000 houses.
"Dwayne, My dad says, 'Shake it like a piggy bank.'"
