Everybody (but LAT) talking about Leinart

David Davis at SoCal Sports Observed makes the point that the Los Angeles Times has yet to mention that the father of USC basketball player Brynn Cameron says his daughter will miss this season because she is pregnant by former star quarterback Matt Leinart. Cameron apparently told the team Monday. Leinart has had no comment at the Arizona Cardinals camp. Plenty of others talking about it though. Scott Wolf reported it yesterday in his Daily News blog and in the paper. People magazine has picked up the story, so has Trojan Wire. Sports by Brooks rounds up the chatter in the Arizona Republic and on Petros Papadakis's KMPC show. Today's Ventura County Star says the baby boy is due in November. Davis notes:

The big-mouths on sports talk radio have been doing the math re: Matt Leinart and Brynn Cameron's pregnancy. As in, she's due in November and he was spotted leaving Paris Hilton's place in May. Hm. Here's the real math: The Daily News posted the story on its web-site on Monday night; the Times has yet to acknowledge the alleged conception. The News, meanwhile, followed up with a story yesterday about the USC women's basketball team Cameron plays on the team and reported that Cameron "will red-shirt for personal reasons."
