you obviously didnt watch him in college. my close friend knows him well. they're actually good friends to be exact. mike has always had talent and would've been a stud in the nfl if it weren't for 2 things. 1) he lost his appeal and couldn't play during the 2004 season. he declared early (was given stupid and wrong insight to declare early) and the judge ruled against him which made him ineligible for the 2004 nfl draft and couldn't even practice with usc. 2) his ego created his poor work ethic. he was a GOd on campus and everyone loved him. he's always had the skills but his attitude didn't help in the nfl. he was simply lazy.
if he could get back to form (highly doubt it), he could be a productive receiver. i doubt it b/c it's been 6 years but who knows. i root for him all of the time b/c he's an ex trojan and he's a good guy.
