According to reports, Steve showed up to Sunday’s practice less-than-sober. A student texted ESPN and told them that Steve “showed up lit to meetings again today.” Stories are even breaking that Steve was drunk during this week’s Arizona State University game.

Steve has a storied history of alleged alcohol abuse, but easily the most notable moment involved a drunken speech at the Salute of Troy booster rally earlier this year.

Steve was forced to apologize after the event, and USC’s Athletic Director Pat Haden was visibly upset with Steve’s behavior. In turn, the university banned alcohol from the USC locker rooms.
