    So much for amateur athletics at the NCAA Division I-A level.

    I heard Mora got a 12 million dollar payout. Was that severance, contract buyout or birthday present? Don’t tell me that College football doesn’t make a boat load of money where they can throw that kind of money at a departing employee. I have a feeling Mora’s agent earned every penny with that contract.

    Trump is pissed that LaVar continues speak of the shoplifting as “no big deal.” All this situation required was a 99-cent thank you card and a complimentary pair of BBB shoes for Donald’s 11-year-old boy, and this thing would be history. But that’s not how our national heroes from Chino Hills roll. It’s for sure that LaVar doesn’t believe in God, because that’s apparently what he sees in his mirror on a daily basis.

    If they are giving me a $12 million check, they can fire me on Christmas. And for the record, the suspension of the 3 basketball players is out of Guerrero’s hands; it’s an administration decision.

    Looks like it’s back to the drawing board for the Baby Bruins. Guerrero needs to go as well. Especially if he blinks and doesn’t suspend the shoplifters.

    I don’t know which shows less class: firing Mora on his birthday, or firing Kiffen on the tarmac. Both organizations need a refresher course in basic humanity.
