USC set to face the NCAA

USC faces the NCAA Infractions Committee this week in Tempe, Ariz., where athletic director Mike Garrett and former coach Tim Floyd are among those expected to defend themselves.

The Los Angeles Times has a look at what USC could be in for as the NCAA sifts through the O.J. Mayo and Reggie Bush allegations. According to Memphis athletic director R.C. Johnson, who went before the NCAA regarding Derrick Rose:

The hearing "is not 'Law and Order,'" Memphis' Johnson said. "You don't jump up and down at each other. You get your chance to say, 'That's not true,' but you don't ever want to interrupt them while they're talking."

In other words, that vision you have of Jack McCoy grilling someone about Rose's knowledge of equilateral triangles? Doesn't work like that.
