Today's Lucky Number: 5


Five is turning up everywhere we look in the Housegate scandal.

First, where were the Big Five sports reporting agencies -- ESPN, Sports Illustrated, Fox Sports, The Sporting News, and city papers (like the LA Times/NY Times/SD Union-Tribune) on this story? Their job is to report the news and to investigate. Yet they have grossly failed the public. Instead, we have Yahoo! Sports break the news. If you're not familiar with sports media, Yahoo is at the bottom of the totem poll in terms of resources. Were the big 5 totally enamored with USC, so much so that they failed to see the writing on the wall? Anyone who watched ESPN's Trey Wingo interview Bush yesterday saw a "reporter" who let Bush get away with lying and switched the conversation when it was apparent that Bush wouldn't answer the questions. A true reporter would have pressed on for the truth. The sports media has a responsibility and, except for little Yahoo Sports, failed the college football public.


If the LSUoverUSC Blog Team were to get an interview with Reggie Bush, we would ask him the following five questions and would not relent until we got answers:

1. Reggie, where are the cancelled checks for the house payments? We ask this because bringing these forward will clear everything up.
2. Why did your family move out immediately after your mom was questioned by the reporter? Most people believe innocent people don't run away from their houses. Yesterday on ESPN you said that she moved out because you were buying her a new house. But then you said that house was too expensive even for you. So if she doesn't have a new house, why did she move out of this one? Where is she living now?

3. Why did you avoid answering these questions and others on the ESPN interview yesterday?
4. How did your mother, a security guard, afford to live in a $757,000 house?
5. What is your relationship with Michael Michaels?

The LSUoverUSC Blog Team is going to do something it has never done before: give helpful advice to a USC player.

Reggie, the best thing for you to do is live up to your jersey's number and do what a President did after a similar scandal.






That's right, plead Da Fiiiiiiif!

One thing you've missed if you haven't been reading the San Diego Union Tribune articles:

The "wannabe sports marketer" is on the staff of Sycuan Tribe. This tribe runs a large Casino in East San Diego. We all know how the NCAA loves gambling interest in their sport.

Oh -- how many people who lease houses are there when the driveway is poured so they can etch their names in it like the Griffins did? What -- they arranged for the lease while it was under construction? No problem on its own, but with the rest of these revelations it adds to the "smell test" problem.

And how come all the Griffin family's phone numbers changed (according to the paper) when this whole thing came out?

Why did LaMar Griffin decline comment if this was an innocent lease? If my kid was a sports star and a journalist asked about my home, I'd say -- "Listen man, I rent this place and pay a fair price -- go ask the landlord and leave me alone." Instead, they just clammed up.

Then, their lawyer's first statement? -- was it "The Griffins paid fair rent!" Nope. It was essentially "Reggie Bush is not involved with his parents leasing matters.."

The relationship with the casino puts that Reggie lateral in a whole different light now.

i'll fumble 3 times a game for 3 houses. hahaha. i guess old pete found out and thats why reggie wasn't on the field for 4th and 2 that they didn't come close to getting. old lendale "jello" white came up a lil short cuz he lacks true toughness. joseph addai will be a better pro than him. i can't wait to see someone waste a 1st round pick on that loser.
