Crime and Punishment

The meat and potatoes of the infraction committee report as taken from the NCAA’s official website:

The NCAA Division I Committee on Infractions has penalized the University of Southern California for violations in its football, men’s basketball and women’s tennis programs.

The penalties include:

* Four years of probation
* A two-year football postseason ban
* Vacation of regular-season and postseason wins for all three sports
* Scholarship reductions in football (to 15 initial grants and 75 total grants for each of the 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-14 academic years, which represent a decrease of 10 scholarships for each of the three seasons)
* Scholarship reductions in men’s basketball (from 13 to 12 for the 2009-10 and 2010-11 academic years)
* Recruiting restrictions for men’s basketball

The institution also must pay a $5,000 penalty and forfeit revenue from the 2008 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship…

The findings in this case include a lack of institutional control, impermissible inducements, extra benefits, exceeding coach staff limits, and unethical conduct by an assistant football coach.

I know what you’re thinking… what the f*&k could have possibly gone wrong with women’s tennis?!

  1. Girl can call her family. Girl cannot call her family on the athletic dept’s dime… or like 73,000 dimes, to be more exact.

    Enjoy your “dream job”, Laney! This “karma” thing is just delicious. Much better than the crow Laney and USC are dining on!
