If you're in the world of sports, what ever you do, don't try and be funny. Just don't do it! Sports is no home for humor. I'm talking to you, LeBrons! And sorry, Chris Bosh, but you're out too! Will Ferrell...shame on you! You just can't do it any more, because the people at UCLA are getting confused. Believe it or not, the simpletons in Brentwood are too naive to understand something as complex as a "joke". It's a serious problem. And this problem goes all the way up to the top: Rick Neuheisel
As reported by Gary Klein of the LA Times, the hilarious Brennan Carroll 'mic'd up" video has been pulled off youtube after a barrage of negative criticism. The video, which was originally well-received, shows Carroll the younger, supervising the walk-on football tryouts at USC. During the four-minute video, Carroll puts on a bit of a show, his performance teetering between the serious and the absurd. At one point Brennan shouts:
"Whistle! Whistle!" Brennan turns to the camera. "I don't have a whistle, so I just shout whistle!"
But apparently that was enough to send Rick Neuheisel's brain into a downward spiral. We're lucky he didn't start a pledge drive to try and fund USC's whistle shortage. What Neuheisel did allegedly do, however, was push "the video to [UCLA] recruits because he thought it reflected negatively on USC's program."
