From Wetzel's twitter feed:
NCAA wont announce USC case this week. Report is "lengthy" (could mean anything in terms of sanctions) requires xtra time. Next week? Maybe
Hmm. The bit about the report being a "lengthy" one is an interesting one. We obviously have no idea how credible Wetzel's sources are in this instance. Yet the longer it takes for the NCAA to come out with a decision in this matter, the more interesting it is going to get for everyone else.
The conventional wisdom on places like tWWL is NCAA is not going to do much to Southern Cal. ESPN guys are actually out in front advancing the "Trogans are Pac-10's cash-cow" argument to speculate that NCAA will not come down hard on Southern Cal. Still what is also clear that the entire world of college football (from Florida to Texas and all corners in the prairies and in the South East) major programs will be taking close note of what NCAA is doing. It is their credibility that is at stake.
The NCAA officials have one last opportunity to make a statement. It will be interesting to see whether they actually show some guts or give the green light to every other program in the country to engage in all out cheating to boost their major revenue programs.
