We haven’t gotten that many comments from other players and coaches on the USC sanctions and violations, except from those involved. It’s like the NCAA is the Candyman or something, nobody wants to say their name too much. Well at last we have someone with the balls enough to say what everyone is thinking and surprisingly it’s Future Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk. Here is the line of questioning via Seattle PI:
“Were you ever offered anything in college?” I asked.
“Nah, I went to San Diego State,” Faulk said. “Other than good weather, they didn’t have much to offer me, unfortunately. I wish I’d gone to a bigger program and had them slide me some cash to take care of my family, but that wasn’t the case.”
“Would you have taken it? I asked.
“I would have taken it,” Faulk said. “I’m not gonna lie to you, there’s no doubt about it.”
I don’t know any college student in their right mind that wouldn’t take free money especially tax free cash. Has anyone forgot how broke we are…shit is hard out here son.
