  • There are so many lies in this list. You expect people to believe Wale and Plies were football players on the college level? And I’m from Ohio…Stalley? Michigan? C’mon son. And the fat corrections officer was 18 when the famous corrections officer pics were taken. Embarrasing.

    USC was caught in a scandal because of the Romeo scholarship. They gave him a scholarship because him and Demar Derozan were best friends and he would persuaded him to come. When Demar went pro they dropped his scholarship.
