USC Sanctioned

USC has imposed sanctions on itself following an investigation into the improprieties of the O.J. Mayo and Tim Floyd era:
  1. Ban on postseason competition for this season (including the Pac-10 tourney)
  2. Vacating all wins from the 2007-08 season (they went 21-12)
  3. One fewer scholarship for this season and next
  4. One fewer coach allowed to recruit off campus next season
  5. Twenty fewer recruiting days next year
Obviously the NCAA could impose more sanctions, but I'd guess they are unlikely to do so. The whole situation with Mayo was suspicious from the beginning and seems to exude the culture of corruption that is Southern Cal.
