Found out about this early yesterday. Not surprised with the vacating of wins and loss of scholarships but I think the 2-year ban is too extreme. They are punishing players that had nothing to do with the entire situation. I'm sure you will see USC appeal the bowl ban to try and get it removed or down to a one year.
Fight on! We'll get past this.
Great minds, I was thinking the same thing, I would like the appeal to reduce the 2yr ban like you said. We can sugar coated all we want, but these penalties destroy the schools program. I felt so bad for the basketball team, the players who had nothing to do with that mercenary student were punished for something they had absolutely nothing to do with, where is the justice...LOL
