    Looks like USC football is no longer a dynasty after losing 30 scholarships over 3 years, a 2-year postseason ban, and having to vacate wins from even game Reggie Bush played in (yes, that means no Title in 2004)

     LOS ANGELES -- The NCAA threw the book at storied Southern California on Thursday with a two-year bowl ban, four years' probation, loss of scholarships and forfeits of an entire year's games for improper benefits to Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush dating to the Trojans' 2004 national championship.

    USC was penalized for a lack of institutional control in the ruling by the NCAA following its four-year investigation. The reported cited numerous improper benefits for Bush and former basketball player O.J. Mayo, who spent just one year with the Trojans.

    The coaches who presided over the alleged misdeeds -- football's Pete Carroll and basketball's Tim Floyd -- left USC in the past year.

    The penalties include the loss of 30 football scholarships over three years and vacating 14 victories in which Bush played from December 2004 through the 2005 season.

    Great news for my Ducks, because it opens up the Pac-10 for at least 2 years and it could take a while for SC to withstand these repercussions. Juniors and Seniors already on the team can leave without sitting out a year and for recruiting, its going to be a tough sale getting high school kids to buy into playing for nothing for the first two years of their collegiate careers.

    Just found out that USC juniors and seniors can not transfer into the Pac-10 if they wish to leave. I see the logic, but its still lame if the players want to stay on the west coast, which is where they are likely from if they are playing at USC.

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
