Super Bowl Party By Everson Griffen Won't Feature USC Players

After reviewing the details of a Super Bowl party that was seemingly conceived while wearing Bad Idea Jeans, USC has forbidden all football players from attending the Las Vegas soiree. The party and trip were organized by Everson Griffen, the former Trojan and current Minnesota Vikings defensive end who was arrested earlier this week near the USC campus. The party was also linked to 1st Round Entertainment and former USC linebacker Jordan Campbell, who were behind the ill-fated golf cart ride that cost Dillon Baxter a game last season, per ESPN Los Angeles:

"Because of the NCAA rules concerning gambling, impermissible extra benefits and the conduct of agents, we believe that there is a significant chance that the eligibility of any student-athlete who participates in such a trip would be jeopardized," Haden and Roberts wrote in the e-mail, which was obtained by ESPNLosAngeles.com. "Therefore, you are not permitted to partake or participate in the Super Bowl Weekend trip that has been arranged and promoted by Mr. Griffen or Mr. Campbell under any circumstances."

If anything, this is a move that had to be done by USC, who has to keep its nose clean while on probation. The Trojans had their appeal of their scholarship reduction and two-year bowl ban heard last month, and are waiting for the results of that hearing. The more distance, perceived or real, it can create between the school and such distractions like Griffen and 1st Round Entertainment, the better.
