Sitting behind the batter's box at Dolphin Stadium, wearing jersey No. 21 for the Florida Gators, shielding his eyes from a searing sun, Emmanuel Moody would not commit to a prediction on the big game. Florida versus Oklahoma for the Bowl Championship Series title on Thursday night? No, Florida vs. USC in the PCS (Pete Carroll Series), a mythical, can't-happen game between Moody's new team vs. Moody's old team.

Here comes the uncle again. What's the problem this time? My nephew's playing the wrong position. He's not playing enough. He's playing too much. In the rambling suburbs north of Dallas, football coaches from pee-wee league through high school welcomed Emmanuel Moody onto their teams. Those nimble feet, that twitchy acceleration. Then they discovered his physical gifts came with a familial attachment. His young uncle showed up at practice or asked for meetings that stretched an hour.

I see where Emmanuel Moody, USC's second-leading rusher last season as a freshman, is leaving the Trojans as he apparently is dissatisfied with his playing time. "It's a business decision," he said. And all this time I thought he came to SC for the great college education he'd get and to prepare himself for a career and professional life after graduation. Silly me.

And then there were. . . nine. Emmanuel Moody's decision to transfer has diminished USC's depth at tailback, but not the perception that it remains bloated. According to Coach Pete Carroll, however, tales of a nine- or 10-deep tailback supply are greatly exaggerated. "That's not what we're practicing with -- it doesn't feel like that out here," he said Thursday. "We're having to take care of some guys and we're having to work our way through it. "The depth chart is not nearly as it appears."

For the first time in weeks, Emmanuel Moody appeared completely at ease. He walked away from Heritage Hall on Friday afternoon with no bags of ice strapped to his bruised knee and, perhaps more telling, sporting a grin. Moody, a sophomore tailback who was USC's second-leading rusher last season, said he was at peace with his decision to transfer to another school in search of a featured role. "I had to make a business decision for my future," he said. "I think it was the right thing to do."

The eyes of college football fans, including USC running back Emmanuel Moody, will be upon Texas tonight when the second-ranked Longhorns play host to top-ranked Ohio State. Moody, a freshman from Coppell, Texas, signed with USC after initially making an oral commitment to Texas. "Every day, to this day, I still get people asking me why," Moody said Friday after the Trojans' 6:30 a.m. practice. "People in California too, saying, 'What was up with the switch?'

By most measures, tailback Emmanuel Moody enjoyed a productive first season at USC. The sophomore from Texas started four games, averaged nearly six yards per carry and finished second on the team in rushing in 2006. But after missing the last four games because of an ankle sprain and sitting out nearly all of spring practice because of a hamstring injury, Moody sensed that he was overlooked going into training camp.

At USC, there aren't just streaks to continue, there are standards to uphold, traditions to maintain. So yes, it was important that USC won its 24th consecutive Pacific 10 Conference game, 12th straight conference road game and all that. But to keep some semblance of life as normal, the Trojans needed a running back to have the kind of game Emmanuel Moody produced Saturday night in USC's 20-3 victory at Arizona.
