Records show that of the 40 students enrolled in the class, 30 were athletes, including 14 members of the 1996 Rose Bowl team and eight members of the USC baseball team that finished second in the College World Series last year.

Cairney was dismissed for allegedly using racial slurs at work and committing academic fraud himself by helping write an athlete's paper, said interim university counsel Todd Dickey.

Trojan fans just don't get it. As usual, in response to a thorough and well-documented story of scholastic cheating, the Saturday sports letters column was full of whining writers complaining about the Trojans being picked on. Several points: Yes, I attended one or two gut courses myself. However, I attended the class, did all the work, as did the athletes in said class. According to one interviewee, an athletic department representative almost took on the role of a T.A., and, in fact, helped athletes who had never shown up to appear at the final exam and sign exams they did not even take.
