(Newser) – Apparently UCLA really did not give a fig about all the controversy it stirred up by handing a $54,000 football scholarship to Diddy's kid, because now it's gone and doled out yet another football scholarship to yet another rapper's son. This time around Snoop Dogg's progeny, Cordell Broadus, is the lucky recipient, though Larry Brown Sports notes that to hear head coach Jim Mora tell it, he was unaware of the connection. Since Cordell is currently an incoming sophomore at Diamond Bar High School, E! notes, he'll have to wait a couple years before joining Sean Combs on the Bruins. Lindy West shares her idea on Jezebel: "It would behoove staggeringly rich scholarship recipients to make matching donations to need-based scholarship funds." (Read more Cordell Broadus stories.)
