    OKLAHOMA CITY — The NCAA said Wednesday morning it plans to announce its decision about possible sanctions against the Oklahoma football program, more fallout from a case that came to light last year when two players, including the Sooners' starting quarterback, were kicked off the team.

    And when do we get the decision about USC re one of its former players now in the NFL, his agent, and alleged benefits the agent dispersed to his family ? Seems to me that what's good enough for the Big 12 should also be for the PAC 10.

    Sucks when this happens, but it could have been a lot worse. Only 2 scholarships lost this year and two more the next. However, for the players who participated in the 2005 season, they are the ones hit worst, their wins stricken from the record books.

    Rest of article

    You might find this SI editorial interesting if you think this should echo over to the PAC-10:

    "Not only has Bush refused to cooperate with investigators but he's essentially bought the silence of the people who originally brought the allegations through a legal settlement. Barring a dramatic development, USC is unlikely to endure any ramifications."

    Yea I knew about that T-H, but now that it looks as if OK is going to get stung it does seems hard to believe that USC will walk, but that's obviously what your article is speculating.

    Oklahoma's 2005 Holiday Bowl win over Oregon never existed, according to penalties handed down Wednesday by the NCAA.

    The Sooners must vacate their eight victories from the 2005 season, including a Holiday Bowl win over Oregon, as a result of violations stemming from the improper payments received by three players, most notably former quarterback Rhett Bomar and offensive lineman J.D. Quinn.

    Also included among the penalties handed down Wednesday:

    • The Sooners received an additional two years of probation, which now extends through May 2010.
    • The number of scholarships has been reduced by two from 85 to 83 for the 2008-09 and 2009-10 seasons.
    • A reduction by one the number of coaches permitted to recruit off campus.
    • A public reprimand and censure.
    Bomar and Quinn were dismissed from the team prior to the start of fall workouts last August in a fallout that eventually disclosed they received approximately $17,000 for work not performed at the Norman, Okla., dealership.

    Dunno what exactly was expected, but the word came down according to this Chron report. Seems pretty stiff to me ?

    That means nothing.
