Since we have taken the time to point out everything that USC has done in the past month that doesn’t paint them in the best light, we also must take the time to point out when they decide to right a wrong.
On Wednesday, we wrote that the university decided to ban Los Angeles Daily News reporter Scott Wolf for reporting an injury to kicker Andre Heidari. USC banned Wolf from practice for two weeks and USC’s game against Cal for violating their policy barring the media from reporting strategy or injury-related news observed during in-season practices.
Wolf and his editor at the Daily News, Gene Warnick contended that the report didn’t stem from a practice and the two met with USC Athletic Director Pat Haden on Wednesday. And as a result of that meeting, the ban was lifted.
Wolf tweeted the news Wednesday night:
I am happy to say my football practice ban was lifted after talks with Pat Haden and area sports editors. Practice policy talks continue

Finally, a positive decision made by USC.
