Along with losing to rival UCLA last week, USC also lost some standing with one its most famous -- or at least, famous by association -- recruits in Cordell Broadus. Broadus, the son of rapper Snoop Dogg, is a wide receiver from Bishop Gorman High in Las Vegas. And Snoop, a noted USC fan, was none too pleased with the Bruins' 38-20 win Saturday.
"I was just mad about the way we played. You have to understand, the tradition is, we run L.A. To lose to UCLA two, three years in a row, it ain't right," Snoop told TMZ. "We've got too much talent to lose the way we lost -- it should be a closer game. ... He's going to be a grown adult, so he'll make his decision, but I'd say that loss right there is going to hurt. Because nobody wants to go to a school that can't beat their rivals."
The Bruins have beaten USC by a double-digit margin for three consecutive years. Snoop said earlier this season that he's hopeful his son will choose the Trojans. Broadus has collected scholarship offers from an impressive array of schools, including USC, Florida State, Notre Dame, Arizona State, and, of course, UCLA.
National signing day is Feb. 4.
