Though a judge has stayed the expulsion of USC tight end Bryce Dixon the University of Southern California has now decided it’s going to invent a new way to punish him for a crime he didn’t commit.
USC isn’t going to let him play football. That’s right: USC will not allow someone that they’ve given a football scholarship to play football all because he was falsely accused of rape by Diana McAndrews, a female trainer four years older than he is.
Bryce Dixon, who will not be allowed to rejoin #USC's football team, is keeping his athletic scholarship,a USC official said.

Just how far will USC go to save face in its asinine interpretation of Title IX?
Apparently they’ll let someone go to USC for free — $300,000+ over four years — just to avoid having to deal with the Title IX show trials.
Of course there’s a serious question here about whether or not USC is in contempt of the court order.
By staying Dixon’s expulsion the judge restored Dixon’s full rights but USC is threatening him. He can go to school but he can’t play football–if he doesn’t appeal. It’s a new, vicious sanction.
Judge Robert H. O’Brien is a USC graduate for undergrad and law school so no one can really accuse him of favoritism.
It’s time to abolish the process altogether: USC’s process is a secret appeals panel and there’s no hearing and no due process.
Two title IX coordinators — both white women — punished Dixon without a trial and without evidence.
Where is the #BlackLivesMatter people on freeing Bryce Dixon?
Meanwhile we hear that McAndrews has slept with at least five football players. She even reportedly tried to pull a fake rape on another football player!
