USC unknowingly allowed homeless man into football program, issued him uniform and let him field punts in practice

The Pac-12 hasn’t made an appearance in the College Football Playoff since 2016 and the conference has made just two appearances in the history of the event.

The latest story out of Los Angeles gives a good indication of the lack of resources being steered toward even the most premier of institutions in the Pac-12 and explains a lot when it comes to the lack of success being experienced by USC in recent seasons.

According to Scott Wolf of Inside USC

and former Trojan and current FOX Sports analyst Petros Papadakis, USC unknowingly allowed a homeless man into the football program, allowed him access to a jacuzzi along with other football players, allowed the man meals at the football dining facility, a suite in the LA Coliseum to sleep in and even issued him a uniform.

Incredibly, the homeless man wasn’t caught until he attempted to field punts at practice.

Here is a comment shared on Wolf’s Inside USC site

:

“He’s pretty young looking and could pass as a college student,” said a member of USC campus security, who did not wish to be identified. “He is about 5-10 but I heard he wore No. 87 at practice. The guy who really wears 87 is 6-4, so that was a giveaway.”

Papadakis, who also hosts a sports radio show in Los Angeles, confirms the details of this story.

If you are wondering where USC’s security detail is after reading all of this, former AD Lynn Swann eliminated the director of security position within the program during his time running the athletic department.

It sounds like it’s time to bring that position back immediately.

    • It's really hard to imagine comments being funnier than the story:) Left-Coast, I swear...

    • NO I DON'T BELIEVE IT WAS ACCIDENTAL! HOW WERE HIS TEST SCORES OR GRADES?

  • Before this story is done, the guy will be on full scholarship living in the athletic dorm.

  • Bad coverup of another admissions scandal. Probably related to Lori Laughlin. Crazy stuff.

  • USC was going to surprise the guy with a walk-on scholarship right after practice as he looked better than some of the starters. California's landlord/tenant laws prohibited the ouster of this guy from his suite in the LA Coliseum without 30-days notice. He is still enjoying daily maid service.

  • The football field is now a no law, autonomous zone. Homeless, antifa and blm are moving in and taking over. USC has agreed to practice under a bridge downtown and play all games at the landifll until further notice. they are also changing their name to the southern california football team due to the racist ties to the roman empire.

  • The fact that this occurred in left wing California should surprise no one. He was probably also offered clean needles so he could shoot up at the 50 yard line.

    • Aren't you an Auburn fan? Let's use an easy syllogism based upon your statement.

      Homeless guy > South Carolina 2020 football
      South Carolina 2020 football > Auburn 2020 football
      Homeless guy > Auburn 2020 football

      I guess the homeless guy is running circles around Auburn too. He probably intercepted Bo Nix at least twice.

  • Well they let Johnny Knoxville field some punts to open an episode of Jackass (youtube it!), so why not?

  • It is common knowledge that people from Arkansas and most SEC States should not make fun of states that are richer more advanced in education and social issues then their chronically underperforming state in just about every metric. Florida and Georgia get a pass on this

    • It is common knowledge that California is the brunt of jokes from all across the socio-economic strata, nationwide... and has been since that flake Jerry Brown was first elected governor.

    • You've just read an article about the premier CA university being unable to distinguish its own scholarship students from homeless people and you're honestly making an argument that this proves their educational system is "richer" and "more advanced"?

      Really?

      • Well, you know, it's just common knowledge... in California, I guess. Well, I'll shut up and let the socially and educationally elite speak. “It is better to remain silent at the risk of being thought a fool, than to talk and remove all doubt of it.”
