USC releases more documents in NCAA probe |

This is ridiculous. The University needs to find out whoever this booster is and revoke his Gamecock Club membership for good. I don't care if it is Doddie Freaking Anderson, whatever money they're going to donate is outweighed ten fold by these types of shenanigans.

What the heck is this booster thinking? Taking kids out to dinner? There is no way that this guy didn't think that was against the rules. And the players thought he was just being a "nice guy." Listen, no one just takes random college students out to dinner. In fact, no normal person even takes well-known college athletes to dinner unless they're some creepy hanger-on type or wants something from them. Case in point: do you think it's a coincidence that Chris Culliver was directed to purchase insurance from someone offering him a significantly higher rate rather than what the NCAA could provide?

Under the contract, Culliver would have to repay the loan, plus the fee and interested by Aug. 1, 2011, at a total cost of $10,363. The NCAA works with athletes to secure loans through traditional banks at lower interest rates and with smaller processing fees, a letter from USC to the NCAA said. As a result, the university said Culliver did not receive special benefits because the interest rates and fees were much higher than what he would have received had he gone through the university and the NCAA.

This is disgusting behavior in one way or another. I don't need to know the circumstances surrounding a grown man acting like some sort of teary-eyed preteen at a Jonas Brother's concert to know that it's not right. Find out who this guy is and kick him out of the Gamecock Club for life. And ban him from attending USC sporting events. And maybe slash his tires. I have no tolerance for this sort of behavior.
