I caught this over on All Things Trojan...
USC basketball coach Tim Floyd is facing the NCAA's flying fickle finger of fate.
With the denial of Alex Stepheson's transfer waiver and an injury to fellow forward Kasey Cunningham, USC is already short two big men until next year.
Six games into the regular season, they still have no word on Nikola Vucevic. The 6'10" forward from Montenegro is awaiting NCAA clearance because Vucevic played briefly with a professional team when he was in his early teens. Floyd said that the clearance paperwork was filed when Vucevic signed with the Trojans in early June.
Its payback pure and simple at this point...this is why the NCAA will never be taken seriously. They act quickly when the feel like it. If they had simply made a decion quick they would actually build some credit...to me they are no different than a communist organization.
