Ex-USC basketball Coach Stan Morrison seems to be a man with character who doesn't compromise his principles. He requires his players to attend classes, become model citizens, and doesn't bend over backward to accommodate the spoiled, egotistical athletes of today. He managed to do all of this without blaming officials, throwing tantrums or chairs.
Coach Morrison is clearly not qualified to be a successful head coach at today's major university level. Too bad. I'm sure athletic director Mike McGee is working very hard to rectify the situation. In no time, USC's basketball program will reach the lofty heights of its football program (probation every other year).
