Big dogs often avoid NCAA’s bite

You can’t tell me the NCAA isn’t all about selective enforcement. The cases of Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush and now-Memphis Grizzlies guard O.J. Mayo — both of whom played at USC — are well-documented with plenty of witnesses, testimony and evidence, yet the NCAA still hasn’t busted the Trojans. But the NCAA is always quick to pull the trigger on some mid-level minor sports program, like leveling the South Alabama men’s tennis team with a postseason ban and scholarship reductions.
