1) What did he did do wrong? He's over 21 and allowed to drink.
2) He can't joke around when he's drunk?
3) It's not big news to me that Football players get a lot of boo-tang from the ladies. More so than the average computer science major.

For a SoCal fan, the fact that he said he'd make more money at USC than the pros would probably be the most worrisome. (cue SoCal fans using lockout argument)

Except for that, yeah, he's just a drunk 22 year old.

What's the uproar? He's clearly a devoted Christian, celebrating the Eucharist. Clearly.

If you think that Marc Tyler is a good representative of your university, then he did nothing wrong.

USC RB Tyler suspended after comments to TMZ
By GREG BEACHAM, AP Sports Writer – 4 hours ago

Southern California tailback Marc Tyler has been suspended from all team activities and the Trojans' season opener for comments he made to TMZ that implied he gets paid to play for USC.

When asked by TMZ whether he could make more money at USC or in the NFL, Tyler said, "USC, they breaking bread," making a gesture indicating a large stack of money.

USC coach Lane Kiffin suspended his leading rusher Monday for the Sept. 3 opener against Minnesota and possibly longer. The fifth-year senior is facing potential discipline from the school after what he said were two alcohol-related problems in April.

"I am disappointed that I let down all the people who have supported me as I have been working through some personal issues," Tyler said in a statement released by the school. "I realize how my behavior and my statements, even though I was joking, can reflect poorly on so many people. As a veteran player, I should know that my job is to be an example for the younger guys."

USC is entering the second year of a postseason ban during four years of NCAA probation stemming from illegal benefits provided to Reggie Bush.

TMZ recorded Tyler's comments last Thursday outside Voyeur, a West Hollywood nightclub. Tyler, who turns 23 in September, also made a distasteful comment to TMZ about Kim Kardashian, Bush's ex-girlfriend.

"That is not the way that we expect our players to represent USC and our team," Kiffin said. "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."

Athletic director Pat Haden said Tyler "stepped way out of line. He did not represent himself, his university or his team the way we expect. Marc has a lot to do to prove he belongs on our team. We hope Marc learns from this and comes back a changed and better person."

Last month, Tyler said he had appeared before the school's Office of Student Judicial Affairs to discuss two complaints made against him in April. Tyler was accused of spitting on a female student while intoxicated, and later touching another female student inappropriately at a bar near USC's downtown campus.

Tyler acknowledged those problems could lead to student discipline, but he didn't expect to be dismissed from school with no prior history of problems. Tyler also said he sought counseling this summer.

Tyler is the son of famed running back Wendell Tyler, who attended UCLA before an NFL career with the Rams and the 49ers. Marc Tyler played high school football in the Los Angeles suburbs with Carolina quarterback Jimmy Clausen, his close friend.

Tyler rushed for 913 yards and nine touchdowns last season, starting eight games during a yearlong struggle for playing time in the Trojans' deep backfield. He struggled with injuries for much of his first three years at USC, and he missed much of spring practice after reporting overweight and injuring his hamstring on the first day of workouts.

Tyler could have been the Trojans' unquestioned starter as the only returning tailback with significant experience. Multiposition threat Dillon Baxter is back for his sophomore season, while junior Curtis McNeal returns after missing last year with academic problems.

"I accept my punishment and I regret that I will miss the opening game of my senior year," Tyler said. "I am committed to doing everything the right way so that I can be reinstated to the team."

EricCartmann 07-19-2011 12:09 AM

Why is everyone killing the messenger? Just in case you guys did not know, here is a little FYI for you: What I think or what I want has no bearing on how athletes act.

Damn, I actually feel bad for the kid. Gets interviewed and videotaped while plastered, gets suspended as a result.

niel89 07-19-2011 12:50 AM

He is a straight up idiot. Its not like it was a hidden camera that caught a candid moment. The guy is talk directly into the camera. His friends even try to block him off and not have him talk to the camera.

JHL6719 07-19-2011 02:10 AM

Good grief.. that kid wasn't plastered. He knew exactly what was going on...where he was at....what he was doing... and what he was TRYING to say.

Hope he enjoyed his face time.
