wolfman, word on the street is that Todd McNair has “flipped” on Southern Cal in exchange for being cleared and he being able to get a coaching gig without the stain on his record. since Southern Cal has appealled, the case is still open and the sanctions are subject to being reduced OR INCREASED!!!
any sweeeeeet scooops on this time bomb??
A: Technically, the case could be reopened. But I doubt the NCAA wants to rehash it. However, if McNair clears himself, he also runs the risk of being known as someone who would spill the beans on a program, which makes some coaches reluctant to hire him.

If it turns out the Trojans can only sign 15 players and that it’s effective this year, who is most likely to get their scholarship pulled and could/would they walk-on?
A: Since this question was asked, it is now obvious USC will sign up to 25 players and just swallow the penalties in 2012 for three years if the NCAA denies the appeal.

Who replaces John Morton on the staff?
A: I was told this week that Lane Kiffin is going to take his time on the hire but that former wide receiver Keary Colbert remains the frontrunner.
