Corn Flakes: Is The NCAA Losing The Ed O'Bannon Trial?

Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

Chris Plonsky's emails may damage defense in O'Bannon v. NCAA - College Football - Andy Staples -

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Attorney Bill Isaacson stood in front of the federal courthouse on a sunny Tuesday afternoon and smiled as he thought about the performance of the witness who had taken the stand a few hours earlier.

Anyone else getting the feeling that the NCAA's chances of winning this case are going down the drain, day by day?

You've got Mark Emmert coming up to testify tomorrow. Emmert doesn't strike me as a particularly stupid person, but he does strike me as someone who can be manipulated into saying a whole bunch of things he shouldn't, largely because of his massive ego, i.e., he thinks people actually give a shit what he says because he's Mark Emmert, not just because he's the head of the NCAA.

I wouldn't look for Perry Mason-level revelations from him, but more cracks in the NCAA's armor.

Honestly, I don't think they have a chance in hell in winning this thing.

(Wait, didn't I say earlier that I wasn't interested in the nuances of this thing? Dammit.)
