    Brian Baucham, a former USC CB, is suing the school and former coach Lane Kiffin as he claims he was forced to play in a game while already ill.

    The lawsuit was filed Monday in a Los Angeles circuit court. Baucham played for USC from 2008-2012. He was academically ineligible in 2011 as a redshirt junior and played four games in 2012 with six tackles. The fourth game of the season was against Cal, the game that Baucham references in the lawsuit. He didn't play again the rest of the season.

    From the AP:

    Baucham claims he suffered ''cardiopulmonary damage'' and ''brain injury with neurocognitive deficits'' after he played against California at the Coliseum on Sept. 22, 2012. Baucham's lawsuit claims he was ill and dehydrated before the game, but was ''forced'' to play by Kiffin.
