The University of Southern California football and basketball programs will learn whether they are guilty of NCAA violations on Friday, according to a report on ESPN.com.
The NCAA infractions committee plans to release its findings following an investigation and February hearing in which USC officials, including former basketball coach Tim Floyd and current football coach Lane Kiffin, responded to allegations of impropriety.

This is going to be interesting
I think there is no question USC is guilty of violations. The only question is if the NCAA will say so, and what any penalties might be.
Bush is in the NFL making millions and Pete Carroll bailed as well.
The kids playing there today are the ones paying the bill for something that they had no part in.
question is if the NCAA will say so
THAT is the million dollar question
If this happens, we will find out what Lane Kiffen really amounts to as a head coach. I highly doubt he is worth $4million a year.
Go Vols! Good riddance Kiffen.
The rubbers are always guilty, guilty, guilty. GO HUSKIES
It was. Could it be the kiss of death for them?. After the Texas/USC championship game, the Ting twins(USC)tested positive for ‘roids.
I hate USC, but kind of funny for a Washington fan to rip on USC for cheating. LOL
If we’ve entered the era of Retroactive Championships, I hope some reporters start digging at Texas and SEC teams. They will find plenty of dirt. Then their Championships can be taken from them and the NCAA embarrassed.
College football is the most corrupt sport around, but it is selectively so.
If they dont get HAMMERED then it will mean free license to cheat for every school.
Apparently so, but the bigger question is what happens to the Heisman IF the NCAA takes it away from Reggie?
The Huskies have indeed sinned in the past, but we gave Rick Neuwiesel to UCLA so everyone has forgiven us.
IIRC, they invited OJ Simpson to their practice sessions before that championship.
Vince Young will become the 2005 Heisman Trophy winner as he was the second place vote getter.
If they do strip USC of their Wins Oklahoma will become the 2004 BCS Champion.
The wildcard is 2003. LSU won the BCS championship, but USC won the AP #1 after beating Michigan in the Rose Bowl. Bush was a red-shirt Freshman that season, so I doubt they will take any wins from 2003 away, but if they do it could make LSU undisputed National Champs that season.
The NCAA has lost just about every lawsuit filed against them regarding penalties. Going to be pretty hard to get USC based on what happened years ago and no “direct knowledge” by Carroll or his staff.
USC alums have lots of money and they will spend it if there is anything more than a slap on the wrist. If the penalties are harsh, USC alums will hire private investigators to look into several high profile programs for violations which likely would be just as egregious as their own.
I'm going out to buy some more popcorn
You do know that this is all BUSH’s fault, right? /s
oops, G Dub that is
So, once again, it’s, “Bush’s” fault?
He gets blamed for every thing else, why not?....and it was meant to be funny, guess not
Really? There are three “violations” I have read about.
1. Leinhart - He got some girl pregnant, and his dad got mad and made him move off campus, at dad’s expense. Leinhart’s roommate was also on the football team, and dad allowed roommate to move in, too. Roommate paid his share of the rent. VIOLATION!!!! - The ncaa “determined” that the value of the new place was greater than what the roommate was paying, so roomie had to pay the difference b/w what he actually paid and what the ncaa thought the rent should be. You see, dad is a “booster”, and the new digs are an “extra benefit”.
2. McKnight - A non “booster”, non agent with no connection to USC, hires girl, who’s family is a friend of his. He helps the girl buy a car. VIOLATION!!!!! You see, girl is dating McKnight, and not only does McKnight ride in the car, HE DRIVES IT sometimes. Of course, USC has no authority to tell the employer who to hire, or how to compensate his employees. It seems the school must, instead, tell the players who they can date.
3. Bush - His family, who does not live in LA, are on the take, and get free rent from an agent. They may even cheat on their income taxes, if they do not include this on their tax form. There is no evidence the school knew, or could have known, any of this. Moreover, agent, who is a convicted perjurer, says he gave free goodies to Bush, who denies this. MAJOR VIOLATION!!!!!! You see, the school, to maintain “institutional control”, must check the living arraignments of the FAMILIES of their athletes, to make sure no one is living beyond their means, which might indicate they are on the take. Of course, we must also take the word of this perjurer over that of everyone else b/c we all know that “everyone else” has connections with USC so they all must be lying.
My God, what corruption. The ncaa needs to lower the hammer, and hard.
You’re naive if you don’t think the NCAA keeps an eye on all the good teams (SEC).
As an OU fan, that will make me very happy, that was an embarrassing loss for OU, but I wouldn't really count that as a championship, I'd just as soon shove it under the rug and forget about it.
