Scott, assuming that Kiff brings in 15 guys in Feb. that can play well, and that he does the same in 2013 and 2014, but we are not allowed to bring kids in in Jan. anymore like you said you heard was the case, and assuming injuries to be normal, it’s obvioua we’ll be short-handed,and all of the problems that go with that, but do you think that scenario will still leave us able to compete to be a top 5 team, especially in 2014, 2015 and 2016? Thanx a lot for your input as to just how much the penalties will hurt us under the above scenario, which I expect might well happen.
A: It will be hard to be a consistent top 5 team under any circumstances. But with the scholarship limits, I would say top 20 is definitely feasible. Remember, Kiffin used less than 50 players in games last season. So unless there are major injuries, he will be able to keep USC in good shape the next three years.

Q: KingOfLA said:
When Marc Tyler publicly embarrassed USC with his alcohol related incident, he was required to take part in some sort of counseling. Was Kevin O’Neill required to go into any sort of counseling when he drunkenly embarrassed USC last year, when he probably should have been watching game film before his biggest game of the year?
A: I’ve asked Pat Haden about this but he declined to answer. I believe he probably did participate in some sort of counseling because there was plenty of speculation during the Pac-10 Tournament that he might not return.
Q: Champion said:
Can you please give us some prediction of committs? Who does USC sign?
A: I think USC will get OT Zach Banner, WR Nelson Agholor and possibly OT Andrus Peat.
