O.J.: All about intercollegiate athletics

In regards to all the recent 20-year anniversary of the O.J. case coverage, in my humble opinion, you did not have to watch one minute of the O.J. trial. All you had to understand was intercollegiate athletics.

First trial, downtown L.A., right by his alma mater USC. You think that he would get convicted in USC territory?

Second trial, held in Santa Monica, right next door to Westwood.

You think O.J. would get off in UCLA territory! Give me a break!

So, as I said, you did not have to watch one minute of either trial.

I have no clue what the heck you are talking about, what does USC and UCLA have to do with a brutal murder?

Absolutely nothing, but there is an element of truth here. The OJ trial was doomed from the start, when it was moved downtown. The DA's office was terrified of the prospect of a replay of the Rodney King riots from two years previous, and wanted OJ convicted by a black jury instead of a white one in Santa Monica.

Everything went downhill from there.
