    If we hire a guy named "Bubba," then get ready for Jimbo, Dabo, Jumbo, or Dumbo to be hired as football HC.

    Slovis saved Helton's job. Look for Helton to get another extension.

    Well they could just fire him and not say a thing. Allowing the story to go out as resignation is showing him some bit of grace and because employees typically don't say WHY someone was fired unless they break the law. He was going to get a package one way or the other unless there is an issue we don't yet know about.

    However, even with your scenario, it's still a firing, just a little more linguistically colorful.

    I wish there was clip available of the scene in the brilliant British comedy The Thick of It when Malcolm Tucker tells minister Cliff Lawton that Lawton has to resign. Tucker then presents Lawton with the letter of resignation he drafted up for Lawton to use.

    We don't have that clip. But we do have Tucker convincing Hugh Abbott to resign. NSFW language.
    (In fact, any time you see Tucker on screen, assume you can't play it for the kids or co-workers - and heck even the dog might blush a little with his language.)

    Many here think we have already tried Dumbo.

    We should have just given all student's families free rent when Reggie's folks got caught - could have saved lots of lost football revenue...

    He may have been one of the reasons Swann was asked to resign. Hughes may have had more influence over the program than Folt wanted.

    As much as it pains me to say it the traditional USC football religion must die. Not until the new era of USC academia is firmly transplanted and not until Helton is gone and all connections from he back to Reggie Bush are purged will we ever recover. One only has to look at the mainstream publishers and fan-journalists to see that this is no different than the alt-reality hate in our own country.

    Purge is the only solution.

    Yet we will fight on as always

    They sure did. . . but UNC told them to go kick rocks whereas USC rolled over vs fighting the accusations. It's time for a new era, a new mentality of "fighting on". SC hasn't bought into that mantra in decades so out with the old, in with the new.

    Not all but quite a few of you fit the tag “University of Spoiled Children”

    well SC's hired dumbo. . . so that leaves the jimbos, dabo's, and jumbo's. if you have any suggestions, feel free to do the following:
    According to Dr. Folt, “The position will be filled with an experienced and accomplished individual, and I encourage you to share your thoughts and recommendations with the committee via email at adsearch@usc.edu.” The key here is “experienced and accomplished individual.”

    I loved it when Hubbard got USC a 15 yard penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct, bitching at the referees from the sideline, in a game at Hawaii. Could be a " one of a kind" historical moment, a college president getting that penalty. We need 901 to research that issue.

    So cheating (selling grades per performance) but fighting telling everyone you programs are clean is OK?
