    Two year postseason ban, forfeiture of all games won while Bush was in violation of NCAA rules (including 2005 BCS Championship win over Oklahoma) and reduction of 30 scholarships over the next two years.

    Included here because of the Pete Carroll connection, of course. If the mods think it's too OT, I assume they'll move it.

    Take away their first rounder... oh wait...


    I read 10 per year for 3 years, but it's 30 either way.

    It's a twisted system where guys like Carroll and Calipari can cheat the system left and right and then just jump ship when they want to free and clear, while the schools suffer the consequences.

    Writing was on the wall a year ago when Tim Floyd left as their basketball coach, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if Carroll was just biding his time last season until a head coach job offer came along.

    At least USC won't have to worry about this being front page, top of the broadcast story for long with the Big 12's possible implosion :rolleyes:

    As near as I can tell, the VIPs have their hands on the detonator. . . .

    One other thing worth noting; apparently "showtime" is over for the football and men's basketball teams:

    For their sake, I hope NFL scouts are allowed during the four years of probation. . . .

    One other thing worth adding:

    The NCAA also has a by-law that says that any player whose remaining eligibility completely coincides with a postseason ban can transfer to another I-A school without having to sit out a year. . . .
