Marc Tyler ends up on TMZ, doesn't help his case

Playing college football at USC is a bit different than playing anywhere else. First of all, you're in Los Angeles, which is the second-largest media market in the country, and there's no professional football team. So, in a way, if you play at USC, you are the professional football team. Even if you aren't getting paid.

There's also the celebrity culture that pervades the atmosphere, so it's not all that shocking to see that USC running back Marc Tyler wound up Friday on TMZ. Unfortunately for the Trojans, Tyler really seemed to enjoy hamming it up for the cameras and talking a bit more than he should.

In the video on TMZ's website, Tyler makes a harmless joke about Kim Kardashian, but then goes on to say that the players at USC are paid more money than players in the NFL.

It's pretty clear in the video that he's kidding, but given that USC is already on probation and dealing with the NCAA, that's probably not the best joke to be making on camera.

There's also the fact that Tyler is already in trouble at USC for two alcohol-related incidents earlier this spring and is awaiting to be disciplined by the school. So, to show up on TMZ -- TMZ claims Tyler is intoxicated in the video, but you can judge for yourself -- and say the things he said, even if he's only joking, doesn't do much to help his case.

For the love of God, stop referring to TMZ as "the media"... dude.
Semantics. Your definition goes against Webster. Media does not mean credible. I apologize for the use of the word dude. It somehow bothered you. If you are a MAN, I will call you sir.

TMZ is part of the circus known as media. As are you for posting on this thread. Sir. The point is, other parts of the country do not have the shear numbers of microphones in these players' faces. Local news is National news in major markets. Marc T was a moron for doing this. He is, however, part of a bigger problem and it cannot be isolated to one school.

Time to move on. Hope you all have a nice day.

This is hilarious. Some of the comments on here actually make Marc Tyler's comments look intelligent.

And another idiot from the OC heard from. Where did you get your GED? Lacy?

The media would not bother talking to someone from Stillwater, Nebraska. It is L.A. dude.

For the love of God, stop referring to TMZ as "the media"... dude.

Perhaps if USC fans took geography they'd know it's Stillwater, OK, and Lincoln, NE.
It was a joke genius. An arbitrary location - hypothetical, made up. I wasn't insulting you or your hometown. I apologize if you took it wrong. I wanted to say Shi$water.

And who is surprised by this? I've said all along that USC replaced a Tressel-act-a-like in Carroll with an even bigger loser in Lame Kitten. Only Ohio State and USC can be this dumb and have these stupid players. God this guy is an idiot and makes me glad the season is near and we can scratch these two programs off our list of what matters and put them on the list of who cares.

Reggie didn't talk before thinking, he took before thinking it out completely.
