    And USC is done. And I was looking forward to a heated rivalry between USC and UT, OU, and TTU. Oh well at least they have Lane Kiffin!

    Why did it take 4 years to hash all this out?

    Looks like the Big 12 South will still be the dominant division regardless of what conference they go to...

    So, my Trojans did what every other college program does, but got busted because their players were high-profile?:mcnugget:

    ESPN reporting that what Reggie Bush did was what basically what brought the whole football program down. I hope he's stripped of the Heisman and it goes to who should have won it in the first place, Vince Young, who I think did finsih second in the balloting ?

    You got caught. Sanctions are just a matter of what you got caught doing.

    It's like the Brian Cushing deal in the NFL. We know well enough that there are plenty of other cheaters out there, they just haven't been caught so they can't do anything about it.

    I had a few friends on A&M's football team when I was a student, and I know they got money on the side for every game they went to. It happens, it's rampant around the league, but you gotta be smart to get by with it.

    I dont think it was lucky he bolted. I think he knew this was coming and jumped off the ship before it sank.

    Smart by Carroll though.

    So, we have to vacate our National Championship now?

    Congrats to Oklahoma I guess.

    Didn't Bush not cooperate for a while? Or made it difficult for the NCAA to talk to him? Perhaps they were just a bit ticked off that it took so long to get all the info.

    No idea, I'm a Cal fan myself so this news is pleasing :D.

    This seems like it will be a lot worse for USC than I thought. Here is a post from a user @ The Bear Insider

    LOL...USC is ******! :evil:

    Apple Pie's responses are the best in the thread and worth waiting for.

    Its short of the death penalty, but this is a good 30 year stretch in the slammer.

    I'm not sure if I like this punishment. It damaged the new players, and new coaches far more than the school, or guilty parties.
