USC announced Monday that it has suspended running back Marc Tyler for the season opener against Minnesota on Sept. 3 and from all team activities.
Tyler, who appeared intoxicated on a video, said he was "joking" when he said he responded to a question about if athletes were paid more a USC or in the pros. "USC," Tyler said. "They breaking bread."
Tyler also said USC stands for "University of Sexual Ballers" and also made a reference to reality star Kim Kardashian, who once dated former USC running back Reggie Bush.
Tyler rushed for 913 yards and nine touchdowns last season and was USC's projected starter at running back.
