    I don't believe the NCAA will allow this unless the media put a WHOLE lot of pressure on them to do so. If they do allow it the requirements will probably be something stupidly unfair.

    Well this is a very different circumstance from any we have seen. If he were an LSU player, I would definitely be screamin for the NCAA to let him come back to us.

    He signed with an agent is 1st problem. Second problem is he is not eligible and that is why he left in the 1st place.

    Most athletes receive money and gifts the second they sign with an agent, and if this is the case than Mike Williams should be forced to stay out. If in fact he did not receive ANYTHING, than I guess they would let him back at USC. I very seriously doubt he didn't receive anything.

    I don't see why Williams should be punished for something he had no control over. The courts ruled he was eligible ... then he signed with an agent and entered the draft ... then the courts overturned their original ruling and made him ineligible.

    I think the NCAA will allow him back in IF he gives back any money (or anything of value) received from the agent and can get academically qualified by the fall.

    Williams had total control!!!!! He knew coming out that the NFL was appealing the decision. He knew there was a chance it would be overturned. He gambled and lost. Money and greed are starting to ruin the game of football. I think the NCAA should stand up and say "Williams signed with an agent and exepted money" he is inelgible by NCAA rules.

    Now if the NFL had said, "OK, all underclassmen can now enter the draft". Then the NFL changed his mind I could understand making an exception and letting Williams back in. But the NFL NEVER said Williams could enter the draft, they were against it from day one and even said over and over that if they lost the court that they would appeal until they got it their way!!!

    I have one word Williams:
