USC hit with Lack of Institutional Control

AP: Southern California has received a two-year bowl ban and a sharp loss of football scholarships in a report on the NCAA’s four-year investigation of the school.

The NCAA cited USC for a lack of institutional control Thursday in its long-awaited report, which detailed numerous violations primarily involving Heisman Trophy-winning tailback Reggie Bush and men’s basketball player O.J. Mayo.

The NCAA found that Bush, identified as a “former football student-athlete,” was ineligible beginning at least by December 2004 and through Bush’s Heisman-winning 2005 season, which ended with the Trojans’ loss to Texas in the 2006 Rose Bowl.

USC will lose 10 football scholarships annually from 2011-13. The Trojans also received four years of probation.

    And Pete Carroll is just doing fine at his new gig. It’s a shame how the ones responsible can skate the consequences and move on to greener pastures while their school gets their legs taken out from underneath them.
