Josh Shaw injury controversy

How USC cornerback Josh Shaw went from being called a hero to being known for lying.

Aug. 25, 2014 -- "That was a heroic act by Josh, putting his personal safety aside," USC Coach Steve Sarkisian told the school's website. "But that's the kind of person he is. It is unfortunate that he'll be sidelined for a while and we will miss his leadership and play, but I know he'll be working hard to get back on the field as soon as possible."

Aug. 27, 2014 -- "We are extremely disappointed in Josh," USC Coach Steve Sarkisian said in a statement. "He let us all down. As I have said, nothing in his background led us to doubt him when he told us of his injuries, nor did anything after our initial vetting of his story."
