Picked up the Monday newspaper to see Preacher Rick coming off once again as Slick Rick. That sure didn’t take long.
Ken Norton Jr., the onetime Bruin of all people and now a USC assistant coach, was slinging the mud — obviously alluding to Colorado and Washington, two places where Neuheisel had previously self-destructed.
“It’s kind of a pattern of what happened in the past,” Norton said in mentioning Slick Rick’s latest alleged escapade.
I’m thinking right away he’s joined a football bowl pool, interested to know if he took USC or Penn State and the points.
But as it turns out, this is much more serious, Norton charging UCLA with dirty tricks and implying it’s just what Neuheisel does for a living.
