Report: Trojans receive two-year bowl ban and scholarship reduction

The highly anticipated NCAA verdict is in.  It was a ” hope for the best but prepare for the worst” type of wait, and USC has received the latter.

A two-year bowl ban and a loss of more than 20 football scholarships are among the sanctions that the NCAA has dealt USC, a source with knowledge of the situation said Wednesday.

Other penalties may include the forfeiture of victories.

These sanctions stem from the 4-year investigation involving Reggie Bush and O.J. Mayo.  The NCAA should make its findings public on Thursday.  More details will be posted after that announcement.

  1. a sad day for the USC program. no surprise unless you’ve been living under a rock for a few years. mike garrett needs to be fired. pete is already gone or i’d say fire him as well. tough but true.
