In this segment, will USC break the over of 7.5 wins set by oddsmakers?

The over/under for SC wins is 7.5. What say you Scotty my boy? Bet the bank on over?
Likewise, the over/under for Ruin wins is 6.5. I am thinking under is a lock. Your thoughts?
A: I would not bet the bank on anything but I think USC should be able to surpass 7.5 victories. If not, we might see a coaching change. But Vegas is supposed to know. I’m not sure UCLA can’t win 7-8 games this season so I wouldn’t say the under is a lock. If Rick Neuheisel wasn’t the coach, I might take the over.

What information do you have that would indicate USC will sign any recruits mid-term? It doesn’t make any sense to do so. Anyone they sign mid-term means another has to leave after the ’11 season.
A: They will sign mid-year recruits because those scholarships count backward, which means they go against the previous recruiting class. So that means they can probably sign around five guys or so in the mid-year plus 15 in February.

Do you think the NCAA will hand Coach Sunshine his Show Cause Order before or after the Minesota game?
A: I think they will wait because they are busy with the Ohio State case and are going to take their time because everyone is wondering how they will penalize schools in the wake of the USC probation and they are under immense scrutiny.
