The chairman of the NCAA committee on infractions said last year the case against USC was, literally, a "three-feet. " That's how high the paperwork would stack, he said, if you started a pile on the floor. The chairman said the NCAA was going to make an example out of USC in the hope it would serve as a warning to other schools. USC football was slammed with a two-year bowl ban and the loss of 30 scholarships as the result of violations involving star running back Reggie Bush.

Ending weeks of speculation and acrimony, Miami and Virginia Tech are apparently and almost officially last-ditch ditching the Big East Conference for the Atlantic Coast Conference in an extraction campaign so brazenly botched by the school presidents the postmortem analysis should be added to ACC schools' summer-school curriculums. "An unmitigated disaster," one high-ranking college official said Wednesday of the expansion process.

So what do you think of Miami now? Less than a decade after Sports Illustrated in a cover story called for the school to drop football, and four months after losing the national title game to Ohio State, the Miami Hurricanes, heretofore known in campus corridors as "A Mighty Wind," are about to redraw the map of major intercollegiate sports.
