University of Southern California running back Marc Tyler has been suspended by the team for its season opener against Minnesota on September 3 after comments Tyler made to TMZ.
Tyler was asked by a TMZ reporter if athletes were paid more at USC or in the pros and Tyler had this to say:
"USC," Tyler said. "They breaking bread."Even though USC head football coach Lane Kiffin has had his fare share of quote worthy public comments, he was left with little choice but to suspend Tyler. After all, they can't have their athletes sharing their financial situations with the media.
