For What It Is Worth

We hear the USC delegation that went to Indianapolis for the NCAA appeal hearing believes it “hit a home run,” in its presentation. What matters more, of course, is whether the committee thinks USC hit a home run.

    More importantly, I can’t wait to hear what chuck buck and the count think

    No comment should be the response from SC regarding the appeal. No speculation please.

    Not sure about you but I am not real confident in Pat Hayden’s ability to sack up and actually bring a well thought out fight to the NCAA. He seems more like a passive yes man and someone bent on just keeping it pointed in the right direction to me. Additionally I believe this about way more than what RB’s thug azz ghetto parents did and more about derailing the SC run. Didn’t seem to work judging from the recruitting class of yesterday. Players still come to SC because they have a better chance to play at the next level.

    HADEN is more than capable of carrying on the fight.

    Fight On!

    If I’m not mistaken, the last time we read such optimism about USC’s dealings with the NCAA on this site, USC was found guilty of kidnapping the Lindbergh baby. Sorry, but with the NCAA, the facts, a good argument and $2.00 will get you a cup of coffee at Starbucks. IF SC gets a break, it will be because the NCAA got what they wanted – rid of an A.D. who actually laid it down for his school. If not, no surprise. Unless you are a Trojan, USC is easy to pick on – no media constituency to carry your water (see its alum-blogger’s postings), a new administration that got what it wanted (see Max “look at my first scalp” Nikkias) and a fan/alumni base that will wait out the sanctions with true Southern California indifference.

    thats funny, I heard the NCAA will laugh at the appeal.

    hiring Lane Kiffin probably pissed them off, not to mention the Joe Mcknight deal thats still being investigated.

    I actually heard Slow Lane and Fast Eddie will be suspended for a few games next season.

    what happens when coaches are suspended? can they go to the game? are they allowed to recruit still?

    Maybe they should score a touchdown. Not only is the baseball team not doing so well, but the ping of an aluminum bat is anticlimactic before the event.

    That is foolish to talk about how good of a presentation was made, especially if the NCAA goons get wind of the windbagging.

    It is a bit like telling a new girlfriend a little too early in the relationship that you love her. She may have been leaning in that direction, but the premature announcement may turn her to stone.

    And another example is a Christian group giving the greatest, most convincing, most logical presentation about the merits of its religion, but if they are talking to a Muslim group, then forgetaboutit.

    Not so, Lawyer John. I was present when many Moslems received Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior during our Kairos Christian Prison Ministry. Imagine that, being Set Free in prison.
