Arash Markazi of USC’s DAILY TROJAN took some heat Monday in Los Angeles thanks to a story and column he wrote about the future of Mike Williams at USC.

After talking to Williams on Sunday, Karmazian quoted the Florida-born wideout slamming his teammates, USC fans and the USC athletic administration in a piece published Monday.

Markazi also in a column admonished the fans and athletic department for hastening Williams’ departure.

Predictably, the local media and USC athletic administration - and their various minions - questioned Karmazian’s basic credibility and the accompanying validity of his interview with Williams.

Media members discounted the articles because they were scooped. The USC folks criticized the reports to obviously protect their own self-interests.
