Summary of “USC-Texas revisited: LenDale White and what happened after fourth-and-two”

Today: Trojans running back LenDale White, the final installment in a four-part series revisiting the 2006 Rose Bowl game between USC and Texas.
LenDale White rips open a pack of cheap cigars, packs in some green leaves and rolls a blunt.
White, a former USC running back, loves football – loves it – even though it pains him.
The game reopens painful memories for USC, but for White, the raw hurt has never disappeared.
Seven years out of the NFL, White is spending the holiday at his friend’s house, a messy place with mismatched furniture and three dogs.
Still, White knows Bush’s accomplishments at USC eclipsed his own: 3,159 yards rushing and 57 total touchdowns.
He believes the play has come to define him, and he wonders: How many times do you hear people talking about LenDale White as USC’s career leader in touchdowns? It’s not O.J. Simpson, Charles White or Marcus Allen.
White, USC said, had been aggressive on the sideline during the game and was yelling at players and coaches near USC’s bench.
