I’ve heard rumblings that the NCAA did not follow legal protocol as far as their interviews with Lloyd Lake go. Apparently in California, the (defendant) has a right to be included in questioning when there is potential for punishment from an voluntary organization (like a coalition or the NCAA).
We’ve all seen the poorly executed video detailing the leading questions by the Infractions Committee… do you think that, in and of itself, is enough for USC to get that portion of the allegations thrown out by any sane judge? I realize the appeals portion comes first, but it is apparent that USC will take this to its logical conclusion – which would be to state/federal court.
A: I am not a lawyer but I hear USC’s general counsel office is exploring many different legal options and if it thinks there is something it can succeed with in a court setting, it might pursue it if it loses the entire appeal.

With the IRS investigation of Reggie Bush possibly bringing hard evidence to the table isn’t it a good time to just accept the sanctions? Could the NCAA turn and make the sanctions worse if more comes to light?
A: If Bush is smart, he will just pay whatver he owes on the taxes and interest without bringing any more embarassment to the university.
