Pat Haden Interview

6

After watching the SCHawks (wink: Gnossos) defeat the St. Louis Rams last night, Fred Roggin of Channel 4-LA news interviewed USC AD Pat Haden. I apologize now if this has been posted before, as it looks like this interview took place at least a week or two ago. But I felt the content and statements made by AD Haden was appropriate, sincere, and forthcoming. I do hope all you Trojans enjoy the questions posed to Pat Haden and his responses to them. Fight On Y'all!

Dr. Jo Potuto is OVERLY-INVESTED! [updated 1.6.11]

I've got nothing but time on my hands today- did a 'Google-search' with just "Jo Potuto". BLAMMO! This pops up: (I'll summarize) A memo to many faculty heads and faculty members, "faculty athletics representatives" (WHAT THE HECK??) throughout the D-1A member schools. In this memo, Ms. Potuto basically delineates the ad hoc position of the NCAA higher ups regarding the playoff vs. BCS polemic for championship college football. It is authored with her Executive Committee letterhead. Seriously! You heard that right, SHE'S GOT ANOTHER FREAKING OPINION! This chick is many things, but she can never be accused of altruistic inclinations. She is FOR the money, ABOUT the money, AND NOTHING BUT IN the money regarding college athletics. (my personal opinion) (UPDATED!!!!) A co-worker of mine found this gem on Jo Potuto: "NCAA Rules, Adoptions, Infractions, & Enforcement", a written description from her own words and opinion on how, why & what the NCAA operates within. Scroll down to page 294 when she talks about "The Cooperative Principle" and Subpoena Power. It's just rich- she basically outlines "the ideal" for NCAA Infractions & Enforcement, but clearly doesn't seem inclined nor possessed to practice what she preaches. Sounds like Dubya's "compassionate conservatism", in my eyes. Mind you, it's a PDF download- the same link I had trouble with in linking USC's Notice of Appeal last month.
