Thanks for your article about USC's new scholarship policy. I'm a documentary filmmaker with degrees from Stanford (BA) and USC Cinematic Arts (MA) who is fascinated by this subject. I hope this might just be the first of many exchanges on it between us.
I was hoping for clarification on one detail. In your article, you write, "Under the current practice, student-athletes can be forced out of scholarships for performance reasons..." Does "performance reason" refer to academic performance or athletic performance? In other words, was on the field/court or in-game performance a factor in scholarship retention for an athlete under the outgoing policy?
Thanks in advance for your time.

Trenise, I think Garrett did approach Sark about the USC job. Sark declined. Check the old news stories. I'm pretty sure of it.
Trenise. Whats the deal with T Shepard?
Hey Trenise, big fan. If Wilcox isn't our new defensive coordinator, who do you think it will be?
Thank your reply--I think you need to reread my comment below. You already threw a stone at someone who misspelled Kiffin's name. There are plenty of mistakes in the BR articles. One even misspelled Coliseum. As for the media hacks--I can't believe anyone can pretend that all the malicious and untrue attacks USC has suffered in recent history just didn't happen. BTW Lisa Horne is also a USC alum and it didn't stop her from spreading her evil crap around.
Dang!!! Is that a bitter Cupcake or what? Sheesh. lol
I am not your buddy or your sister. After what USC endured at the hands of that evil bitch Lisa Horne, I for one am not giving any allowance to any one who wants to bash USC. If you are going to do that you will get push back.
