    If it's D_B, my apologies.

    Lots of people have reported -- and have been wrong -- about impending sanctions against USC, but a source I trust -- the L.A. Times -- says the Trojans will get a two-year bowl ban and lose -- gulp -- 20 scholarships.

    Fight On!

    Asked if the sanctions were appropriate, a source said, "It depends how you look at it. It is if you're a UCLA fan."

    also... if USC forfeits their 2004 BCS title (the Orange Bowl win over OU)...... who gets the title?

    The OU team that got shellacked or the 13-0 Auburn team?

    The ESPN scroll is saying the committee could strip them of the 2004 national title. If that were to happen, who goes into the record books as the national champion? The OU team the Trojans beat by a gazillion points?

    EDIT: Sportshack beat me to it. Still very, very curious.

    If they handle it the way the NCAA handles it in basketball and other sports no one gets the title. It will be listed as "Vacated".

    What's the jurisdiction for the NCAA to strip the "national title"? The NCAA does not sanction Division I-A football championships.

    The NCAA wouldn't strip it. The Collegiate Commissioners Association - which runs the BCS - would.

    And I don't think the Heisman Trust should take Bush's award from him if he's declared retroactively ineligible.
