 @John at MrSEC In our defense (or mine), we are still in the afterglow. But this is the first I've been on the site since this weekend. But kudos and I wholeheartedly agree. I will forever be thankful to our AD, two ADs ago (Mike McGee) and Lou Holtz for somehow getting Spurrier to accept the position. Oh, and thank you for Jeremy Foley for trying to make Spurrier go through an interview process to get the job back at UF.

 @John at MrSEC  @Ced Lover  THX. Enjoy the site and thanks for the info from SEC officials. (I don't buy it, but it's good to hear their take). it's definitely a slippery slope for the league

USC grad, so I bleed GARNET. 

 

However, I have no problem with the suspension. It was a nasty helmet-to-helmet hit. The rules say "DON'T DO IT," and he did it. But worse (and stupidly), he tweeted a video of the hit...essentially bragging about the play for which he got flagged. Even if the suspension wasn't going to happen, the league would have had no choice. They're cracking down on those types of hits, while he's glorifying that he did it. He's a senior and a leader of the defense. He should have been smart enough to avoid that type of hit. Or even if it was unavoidable, he should have been smart enough to not draw attention back to the hit two days later. SMH

 

That said, Andre Hal (#23 for Vanderbilt) did indeed have a similar helmet-to-helmet hit. (Just search "Justice Cunningham 20 yd Reception" on Youtube). So you gotta see how it seems to USC fans. I don't think it's a conspiracy, however I do think the problem with the NCAA (and now the SEC) is that the rules are NEVER consistent.

+ Hal (Vandy) flagged, NOT suspended. 

+ Elston (Ole Miss) NOT flagged, but suspended.

+ Swearinger (USC) BOTH flagged and suspended.

 

No one is arguing the rules...we are arguing the application of those rules.
