Yep. Max Nikias, Pat Haden, et al wrote the book on rectal benevolence in dealing with the NCAA.
Petros, is that you?
In any case, you are intentionally avoiding the obvious. Why?
I think the NCAA was ridiculous and clearly wanted to crush USC unreasonably. I'd want nothing more than to shove it in the NCAA's face and get our scholarships back.
But read the report. They covered their bases and unless there's more to come from the emails, the McNair case makes no difference because OFFICIALLLY the finding of LOIC had zero to do with McNair. That's not to say that the LOIC finding was right (it wasn't). But McNair's case regarding maliciousness makes no difference.

I'll go with the judge here.
There are bloody fingerprints all over this and we've only seen the tip of the iceberg.
The judge is ruling on McNair, not USC.
Those emails absolutely show malice towards McNair, but there's hardly a mention of USC. Unless there's something new in the big document dump, don't get your hopes up.
Connect the dots. This isn't rocket science.
Were they "after" McNair, or were there bigger fish to fry? This is the "obvious" that you chose to avoid.
Not worth arguing about until the email are released.
The "obvious" isn't a legal standard.
Of course the NCAA wanted to hammer USC. There's no question of that. I don't need those emails to tell me that.
But if USC wants to take action here *they do* need those emails to show more than what has already been revealed. They need far more than statements from NCAA staff maligning McNair because his case was purposefully separated from the finding of LOIC. A win for McNair is not necessarily a win for USC.
