    UCLA makes PR move in offering Cordell Broadus scholarship

    Snoop Dogg

    From article:

    When UCLA offered Cordell Broadus a scholarship, the Bruins were doing more than trying to attract a promising sophomore wide receiver and defensive back for Diamond Bar (Calif.) High. In essence, the program was staking a claim to territory in the L.A. pop culture spotlight, for one very clear reason: Cordell Broadus is Snoop Dogg's son.

    Regardless of the younger Broadus' potential, it's hard not to feel that Mora Jr. may be offering him a scholarship at least in large part for PR benefits. Snoop Dogg officially claims to be a USC fan, so snapping up a commitment from his son could give the school requisite street cred and offer a certain buzz to a program which sorely needs just such a jolt of excitement.

    And people think we have a drug problem? They won't be able to tell if the haze is LA Smog or Snoop Dogg.

    Do you blame him? Kid wanted playing time. How can he be starting by midseason, if he can't get his moped.
