    He apparently showed up for work drunk.

    He wasn't just drunk at work…. he was fucking ripped while giving a speech to the top USC donors alumni banquet and acted a complete buffoon. So yeah he fits right in down there.


    EDIT: @venividivicibj below… awesome. :)

    He was drunk today to practice. And at the ASU game.

    Re concussions: I'm not going t o dig it up but there's a ton of new research that is finding that encasing the head in a sport with repeated blows to the dome increases the likelihood of concussions. Doctors are now finding that that leads to (in very basic layman's terms) more pressure on the skull with the brain rattling around more. That's why in amateur boxing they're starting to do away with headgear.

    The point is: coaching staff is a part of the concussions, maybe 35% or so (made up number) but the sport as it's played will have an intrinsically alarmingly high concussion rate.


    From what I read after the first incident my first thought was that he is a sot. Looks like...

    Interesting about how they knew he was lit to the ASU game (which they won), but news didn't leak until weeks later when he lost to UW.

    I remember when I played jr high and HS football, coaches told us to lead with your head and hit the person with the crown of your helmet. They stopped teaching that right around my sophomore/jr year in HS.

    Also playing in jr high, they also wouldn't let us take off our helmets during practice and not drink water except for designated water breaks to build toughness.

    The backup is decent though. But I wouldn't be surprised if he's suspended again at some point down the road either.

    Lol. Random.

    QB doesn't need to be super buff.
