Are USC and NCAA still talking football?
By Ted Miller
TEMPE, Ariz. -- USC and NCAA infraction committee members returned from their lunch break around 1:30 p.m. local time, as did Trojans running backs coach Todd McNair.
McNair is an important figure because it has been alleged that he was aware of former running back Reggie Bush's dealings with a couple of would-be sports agents.
While an NCAA spokesperson noted that McNair's presence in the room for a second day doesn't necessarily mean he is still being questioned, it seems meaningful that former basketball coach Tim Floyd apparently hasn't yet appeared before the committee.
While no one will go on record as to what is going on behind closed doors, it appears that football remains the committee's focus after a day-and-a-half of proceedings that are scheduled to last through Saturday.
