The NCAA just blew up USC football's world by forcing the Trojans to forfeit their victory in the '05 Orange Bowl ... a win that earned them the National Championship.

This all comes after an NCAA investigation concluded Reggie Bush got improper benefits while at USC.

According to the NCAA findings Bush received a car, and his family received a house and other financial benefits.

Yes, I believe that is exactly how it works. I'm not sure if there was a unanimous 2nd place school, but even if there wasn't I think someone will be awarded the Championship.

It's just like the Olympics. When someone is stripped of their Gold, the Silver medalist gets the gold instead.

Good point. Auburn did get hosed.

How do you go unbeaten in the SEC and not get a shot at the title?

Poor Lame Kiffin just can’t get a break. I think it was the USC AD that said they hired him because “he knows how things work around here.” I’ll just bet he does.

Now, how does the NCAA plan to deal with Pete Carroll—or not. He gets off scott-free.

Excuse me? Exactly which championship-level college football team does not lavish fortunes on their star prospects? I'll answer for you...NONE. Its why the alumni drowns the program in "recruitment" money year after year.

FYI: Some (incredibly adorable) USC students worked unbelievably hard to get their scholarships without being the least bit "Spoiled" and had to dodge gang fights and step over drunks to get to campus every damned day. Jerk.

USC played Oklahoma for the championship that year.

But USC's #1 ranking for the entire 2005 season was due to its national championship win the previous season against Oklahoma.

Would have been nice if the ruling came down BEFORE National Signing Day.

Yeah, 2004 was the year Mack Brown abased himself to get to the Rose Bowl instead of Cal. So now Cal is the 2004 Pac-10 champion and still hasn’t played in a Rose Bowl since 1960.

About 12 Saturdays a year, I root unrelentingly for two football teams - my alma mater, and anyone who is playing USC.

To me, this news is like Christmas is June.

"Would have been nice if the ruling came down BEFORE National Signing Day."

I think that there's precedent for letting freshman transfer in such instances, without making them sit out a year. Could be wrong.

In that case Tech and Baylor probably go to the WAC or C-USA.

The SEC needs another team to go along with OU, I think A&M wants to go to the SEC as well.

I think A&M would benefit as the only Texas school in the mighty SEC, that would give them a selling point over the Longhorns.
