Read USC’s response here

USC took the interesting approach tonight of making public its initial response from last December to the NCAA’s notice of allegations.
Here it is, and it’s a hefty 169 pages so don’t hit the print button unless you’re really sure.
I’ve just skimmed it so far, but I love that after taking great pains to simply identify one of the parties as “student-athlete 1” it then notes that he “won the Heisman Trophy in 2005.” Hmm, who could that be? David Kirtman?
As one reader of it has already noted, it has a pretty defiant tone. The NCAA made clear today that it didn’t appreciate that approach.
ESPN.com’s Ted Miller appears to have read much more of the response than I have and has a good analysis here of USC’s defense and how it may approach its appeal. He also has a good look at how this may impact USC on the field.
