More on Mike Williams: Former (and perhaps soon to be current) USC wide receiver Mike Williams is taking steps towards seeking reinstatement from the NCAA. Apparently, Williams has more to do than just renounce his agent contacts, since he has taken a trip on a private jet and accepted numerous gifts. The NCAA is now faced with the precarious situation of a player who wants to be back in school but a tough decision that could create a dangerous precedent of receiving compensation but being allowed back in school.

On the other hand, the facts of this case are unique enough that the NCAA could make an exception and not change its tough stance. Mike Williams and USC can only hope that this is the path taken by the NCAA.

Paul Woody has more on the caution this tale should elicit in the future.
