The NCAA Might Be Closing in on USC

This is our first "shorty" -- kind of inspired by SBNation's FanPosts, but more or less a way for us to move more items off of Good Shizzy for commenting.

Yahoo! Sports continues with their solid investigation into Reggie Bush, O.J. Mayo and other alleged transgressions at USC:

Yahoo! Sports has identified 17 individuals who have been interviewed at least once – and some multiple times – by the NCAA. However, that number is believed to only be a small portion of those who have met with NCAA investigators in connection with the USC probe. The NCAA also has been in contact with other ancillary individuals. That includes lawyers involved in Lake’s civil suit against Bush.

Two sources also have confirmed the NCAA has spoken with the FBI, which is investigating dealings between Mayo and Guillory. ESPN reported that Guillory received more than $200,000 to steer Mayo to sports agency Bill Duffy Associates (BDA) following his lone season at USC.

With talk of Tim Floyd paying for Mayo and the continuing Bush revelations, is this real trouble brewing or a case of the Teflon U dodging another bullet?
