You can actually read the report saying they did cooperate? Knowledge is there for ya if you want it so then you don't have so say that you have no way of knowing.
High profile player... love it. I think Dee coined that phrase right?
lol - the attempted murder defense! hey, he never played, so what's the harm? we can't drop $25k on benchwarmers?
The NCAA believed a felon to nail USC. The NCAA is all over the board, they do what they want, to who they want.

Hope that works out for the floats. Doing shady ish wont matter because the guy sucked.
Still trying to figure out how an agent paying a guy/family to leave school early greatly benefits the school itself? Interesting argument.
You can also read in the report where they offered up no internal investigation, and zero efforts at self policing or sanctioning.
But that seems to have been forgotten, eh?
Oregon hasn't self-sanctioned either. Guess we'll be reading that in your report too.
Have to agree here. What Lache's production was doesn't matter. It is still more of a benefit to get a player than for a player a team already has to get benefits personally.
The only problem that makes USC's sanctions much worse (probably) is that Bush played after ineligibility.
Technically as well, Lache is still eligible since he never received a benefit, so it really may not matter if he played or not.
I'm not saying it matters one but in this case. Just correcting the Trojan that said we benefitted greatly from it.
Obviously what matters in the case is what exactly the 25k paid for. And if it was directly for a player why they would be so dumb to cut the check from the schools account.
It no way does benefit the school, but a player making poor decisions like that can hurt a school.
So that considered not cooperating? Doing more to prevent a problem is just a little different than preventing a solution to resolve it.
Like I said, it's there saying SC fully cooperated.
Yes...but they have had investigations, both with and without the NCAA.
And any self sanctioning is going to occur after all investigations have finished.
USC had ZERO self investigations on any of this. Despite media outlets like Yahoo frying them daily for a year, they never once had a single internal investigation on the Bush situation. Then when the NCAA conducts their OWN investigation, USC had absolutely nothing to counter it with, except of course, the vaunted "How were we supposed to know" defense.
I'm still trying to figure out other than getting the inside scoop on knowing what type of Jordans Lache Seastrunk liked, what exactly did Oregon get for $25,000.
Where does it say that?
No..its considered not doing any work to help the NCAA. Its why USC had zero ground to stand on when the NCAA gave them the report they did. Since USC had compiled zero information (Which I have never heard of a school doing before, except in the SMU case.)
USC, primarily because of Mike Garrett and the fact they had zero compliance department, never did any self investigating. This was noted in the report as well.
Agree. We'll see if duck fan can comprehend that.
You got a USC investigation iinto the Bush situation sitting by your computer? Theres your answer.
They did no self investigation. They DID self investigate the OJ Mayo situation however....and they self sanctioned in that case as well.
This Duck fan is fully aware that Oregon seems to be pretty filthy right now.
However,their dirtiness does not remove any of the massive amounts of grime that USC has accumulated in nearly 60 years of NCAA trouble.
Did you read it in the NCAA brief, or did you hear it from someone else? Or did you just make it up?

Thats the question. What the holy hell was Kelly doing?
The fact that USC offered no report to the NCAA and has never had any for the Bush situation is simply a fact. There is also the fact that they did offer up a self report on the Mayo case, including self sanctions.
USC has never offered up any reports from the school or any agent of the school regarding the Bush situation. I cannot prove to you that something that has never existed does not exist now. Thats trying to disprove a negative, which is impossible.
Are you a little mad? We'll see if the floats are relevant enough to get nailed by the NCAA. I doubt anything happens because the NCAA likes seeing the saturday night SEC little bootycall make it to the big game and get handled.
That explains why USC is the most sanctioned major conference program in all the land. Because they dont want to watch USC beat Alabama.
NOW it all makes sense. Thank you.
At least you're starting to get it. Good job duckie.
Good luck with the Lyles situation.
I think Oregon needs a little more than luck. They need some ethics instructions.
So, to be clear, you've never read the NCAA report.
