Fight arrogantly. Fight recklessly. Fight wrong. As suspected, the only thing that could truly stop Los Angeles' most powerful football program was its own heady belief in that power. It was no surprise, then, that the USC football dynasty has been whittled to dust by the only opponent equally big and just as bold. They were whacked by their ego.

Wainstein, a former homeland security advisor to President George W. Bush, scrutinizes NCAA procedures and personnel.
