USC Gets Two Year Ban

The NCAA handed down some harsh penalties to the University of Southern California today, including a two-year ban from bowl games, citing major violations by both the football and men’s basketball programs.

From the Los Angeles Times:

Citing a history of misdeeds that “strike at the heart” of college amateurism, the NCAA hit USC with a string of penalties Thursday that will keep the powerhouse Trojans football team out of bowl games for the next two seasons and could cost the university millions of dollars.

The sanctions, which also involve men’s basketball and women’s tennis, culminated a four-year investigation that began with separate reports that two star athletes – Heisman Trophy-winning tailback Reggie Bush and basketball forward O.J. Mayo – had accepted improper gifts from outside sports marketers and agents.
