So if the investigation shows that 'SC is a bunch of bloody cheats. Then the following things may happen:
0-13 USC last year. Oregon wins PAC-10, Vince Young wins Heisman, UCLA / Notre Dame get their rivalry tropies back from the hated one.

I've also heard of a possible forfeit of the last 3 years which would make Auburn the 2004 National Champ.

Also 'SC may get scholarships taken away from them. They'll definetley lose recruits. They'll possibly get banned from Bowl games for the next couple years.

'SC was already going down hill anyway, but Troy is now officially burning.

Look at Washingon Football or Michigan basketball.

So to all you 'SC bandwagoners: LOL probation!

Only April and College Football is already getting shaken up!
 
ESPN is finally picking up on it.

"LOS ANGELES -- The Pac-10 said Sunday it will investigate the reported connection between a home where Reggie Bush's family lived and a man who sought to market the Southern California star tailback.

Bush's family allegedly lived in the house in Spring Valley, Calif., owned by a man who had sought to handle the star tailback's professional marketing while Bush was still playing for USC, Yahoo.com reported Sunday.

The Web site reported that the family moved out of the house this weekend after questions over its ownership arose.

Bush, the 2005 Heisman Trophy winner, chose to turn pro after his junior season with USC. He is expected to be the No. 1 pick in Saturday's NFL draft.

"Rather than jumping to conclusions, we need to determine the facts before commenting on this report,'' USC athletic director Mike Garrett said in a statement. "We have asked the Pac-10 to look into this.''

Pac-10 spokesman Jim Muldoon confirmed to The Associated Press that an investigation will be held at the school's request, but had no further details.

At issue is the San Diego-area home's connection with businessman Michael Michaels, who reportedly attempted to steer Bush toward signing with San Diego agent David Caravantes, and sought to handle Bush's marketing with a new firm he had founded.

State records showed construction was completed on the home in early 2005 and Michaels purchased it for $757,500 in late March, Yahoo reported.

Neighbors told Yahoo that Bush's mother Denise Griffin, stepfather LaMar Griffin and brother Jovan Griffin moved into the home shortly after that.

NCAA rules prohibit student-athletes and their families from receiving extra benefits from agents or their representatives.

Bush eventually signed with a different agent and marketing firm."
 
Jeez TW, I didn't know the UCLA hatrid of SC ran so deep. I can imagine you grinning over this.

Oh well, I don't care for the bastards either, so screw 'em
 
Tangled Web is petty and bitter. Ha.
 
Tangled Web, GROW UP! I hate South Carolina just as much as you do USC, But Im not posting ridiculious crap.
 
Yeah, I saw this on ESPN News this morning. Sucks for them.
 
So I could understand the Heismann going to Young, but all that other stuff, just because one big player got benefits?

What's ridiculous about it, Bush & his family excepted a gift from someone. Under NCAA rules that's illegal.

But heres the thing:

Its too late to do a thing about it. He may have done something illegal, but the fact is he got away with it. You can't penalize the entire team or take away his accomplishments because one player broke the rules and didn't get caught at the time they could penalize him for it.
 
LOL...people get stuff by default....and they are happy about it..AHAHAH



cant earn it ...so i'll have my dad beat up your dad for it......



also let it be known..the pac 10 is investigating by request of USC....how are they the cheats??????? if they didnt know AND brought it up???

They NCAA will absolutely punish the team and the school. If this is true, games will be forfeited, monies will be repayed and USC may go on some form of probation. Nothing will happen to Bush and I severely doubt they'll take his Heisman away.

Yes they can, and they will. A rule is a rule, doesn't matter when it happened.
 
Its a proven fact that a couple of Clemson players got some money their senior year. But has the NCAA brought any charges yet? Nope.

USC was number 1 in having players going pro and #1 in best recruits for this year! Troy isnt burning!

What would happen is that Oregon will still have no Pac 10 championship, and neither will USC for the 2005 season. Reggie Bush keeps his Hesiman. USC keeps the trophies, even if they are forced to forfit the 2005 season. If it goes past the 2005 season, then there is no 2004 National Champion - Auburn gets nothing. Scholarships taken away is odvious, but I do not think they will get any truly horrible punishment (ie No Games Televised, No Bowl Games, Death Penalty).

At first only the PAC-10 started investigating and when they questioned 'SC about it, 'SC was like "What, we didn't do anything wrong. I want you to investigate to see what was wrong" basically they are looking for a reduced sentence.
 
At first I thought hem taking his Heisman away was a stretch but it's been rumored that the Heisman commition will look into it.

Some more good stuff.

Reggie Bush's H.S. Coach was all over the San Diego news admitting that his decision to enroll at USC at the last minute was a surprise and a shock that no one saw comming.

They were told that he was going to select a school from his top 5 choices (if you remember correctly, SC was not in the running). The next morning, he announced "USC" and everyone was shocked on the Helix staff.

The head coach was interviewed and said that within 2 weeks of the announcement, Reggie's step-dad and mother were EACH driving new SUV's, and that he thought something fishy was up.

Bush's family lived in an apartment and moved into a $750,000 house. Can one seriously not think anything's up?

Also, it's probably not only Bush. There have been quite a few players to de-commit from their school's they've loved since birth after 'SC came in. Very suspicious.

U$C.
Buy On!

Thats because USC didnt do anything wrong, Bush did.
'SC let it happen. That basically tells recruits that 'SC will pay you and let others pay you with no consiquence.

Now we know why Leinart stayed.

Stop jumping to clonclusions(spell?).
 
Also, if you think 'SC won't hurt from this then you a dead wrong.

Remember Southern Methodist University?
They got the Death Penalty.

What have they done lately?
 
I hate this USC bias, if this was a Miami or Florida State player they would be guilty until proven innocent
