USC's McNeal ready to answer questions
The wake-up call came in 2010.
Curtis McNeal hadn't done much in his USC career to date. He redshirted in 2008, had six carries for 33 yards in 2009. He returned a few kickoffs, made a couple of tackles on special teams. He wasn't on the fast-track, but he certainly wasn't under the radar.
Then he became academically ineligible in 2010. Football, what he describes as "the easy stuff," wasn't going to be in his life unless he figured out how to make grades.
