USC Runningback Marc Tyler was suspended after he was asked by a TMZ stalker, “Did you guys get paid more at USC or right now in the pros” and Marc Tyler answered “USC, they breaking bread.” I don’t know what the stalker meant by that question, but you can be damn sure he got the answer he was stalking for.
Marc Tyler seems like a funny guy (Joe Pesci voice) who was only joking around, but Lane Kiffin and the USC suits didn’t find Marc’s comments too amusing. They decided to suspend Marc from all team activities up until the first game against Minnesota (on Sept. 3rd), and maybe even more.
Kiffin released a statement today,“I was very disappointed when I learned of Marc Tyler’s inappropriate comments that were captured by the media last week. That is not the way that we expect our players to represent USC and our team.”
Kiffin then said,“I have consulted with athletic director Pat Haden and I am suspending Marc for our upcoming season opener and potentially further, and in the meantime I am also suspending him from all team activities. Although Marc may find this punishment severe, it is imperative we continue to have a high standard for player behavior. Marc needs to work hard to show us that he can meet the standards of being a USC football player.”
Tyler had over 1000 (total) yards last year, and 10 touchdowns and was the favorite to start his senior year at USC. Kiss that all good bye. I mean you gotta feel a little bad for Tyler and the idiot in him. Even suggesting the word “money” with a collegiate sports team is as dumb as not double wrapping it for an Asian tranny in Bangkok. But then again Marc Tyler is a USC athlete who plays football to bang chicks, get drunk and party, and get money…and there ain’t nothing wrong with that.
