UCLA had some awfully good bball teams during that time. Yet, not a whiff of wrong doing that I'm aware of.
I'm just not buying the lack of an NFL franchise as any type of cause-effect relationship. You may be right about the star factor being present at USC, but I don't think that is anyway related to the lack of an NFL team.
