Hosted by

It's now official. USC's football team will be banned from bowl games for two years and deprived of athletic scholarships. At the same time, the PAC-10 Athletic Conference is expanding. We look at two familiar stories about what's supposed to be amateur sports -- and the influence of money. Also, the attacks are already flying in the race for Attorney General.  On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, the Gulf oil slick has reached Alabama's inland waterways, and BP's looking worse than ever.  But the oil industry and some members of Congress say the President's moratorium on deep-sea exploration is doing more harm than good.
