I like him
I remember him on ESPN when I first got cable in 1985. I am not surprised he did not last into the 90's when ESPN turned into the goliath that it did....Along with the stupid catchphrases, some were food yes,....But then it became a caricature of itself. A guy like him would have never fit in or last in the culture of ESPN now.
Grande was the first person ever seen on ESPN. He gave inductory comments on what ESPN was going to be about when it first went on the air.
As for his playing at USC, I'm sure as much as he has mentioned it if it weren't true it would have been refuted long before now. Grande is highly respected in the TV industry and he wouldn't be if he was out there making up stuff like this.

It's gunna be.......GONE!
"And why do false truths persist, getting passed down the decades as if they were fact? It comes back to the same point: People believe things that are wrong because, individually, people rarely investigate their own beliefs, particularly when what they believe makes sense intuitively. Even more so when those around them agree with them." -K.F.
Probably just never played.
