Is the appeal an all or nothing thing? Can they win some concessions and not others? If so, what do you think is more likely, a reduction in the number of scholarships lost or only a one year bowl ban?
A: I’m not optimistic about anything when it comes to the NCAA. But I think a scholarsh
ip reduction is more likely because the NCAA would not look like it was backing down as much as if it reduced the bowl ban.

Scott, obviously there is still a load of top talent and starters still sticking around.
What kind of positive talk and general (but honest) sentiment is coming from this strata of players, and specifically from whom? What are they saying; what are you hearing? And, are there any common threads?
A: The players are positive about their prospects this season. A lot of them want to play and prove themselves and the fact their is a bowl ban is not going to keep someone from playing hard in a game. The key will be Lane Kiffin’s motivational skills if there is some adversity during the actual season. I mentioned this many times before the sanctions but it will be even more important now.
