Man, he didn't even come close.  Couldn't get past question 3.  That can't be promising when thinking about appealing.

Mistakes:
Not putting lake on the stand.  That was the NCAA's ENTIRE CASE.  Unpredictable as it might be, I think you have to put him up there and put him under some pressure and let the jury see how his answers stand up.

Withdrawing the two other claims mid-trial.  If you're gonna file them in the first place, let it play out.  Withdrawing them after the fact had to have looked bad to non-attorneys making up the jury.

Not sure, but I think Bush needed to make an appearance.  He could have cleared up a lot of conjecture re: how much McNair knew about Michaels and Lake.  Risky (not really after today), but I think you have to find the TRUTH in the matter and hopefully it falls your way.

That's a lot of mistakes for essentially a short civil trial.  Wonder if McNair is questioning his choice in counsel at this point, b/c two of the three are no-brainers imo.

Never followed it, or as SC says, waited for the Great Pumpkin.....for the simple reason SC was never getting those wins back.

USC football is dead. The NCAA played it perfectly. They acknowledged they screwed some important aspects of the case up, but successfully sold that they had no ill will or malice. Jury bought it.

How bout them Dawgs!?

Hmm. Sounds like the jury had figured out how the NCAA rolls, but didn't think they had the authority to override the law. Apparently none of them were aware of "jury nullification". Another travesty of Justice.

I think us realists knew this wasn't going anywhere.  It wasn't going to bring the trophy back or change anyone's perception that sc cheated
