EUGENE, OR - FILE: Tailback Reggie Bush #5 of the USC Trojans is swarmed by fans as he leaves the field after defeating the Oregon Ducks 45-13 on September 24, 2005 at Autzen Stadium in Eugene, Oregon. It was reported that the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) announced that it has stripped the University of Southern California of its football national championship in 2004, a repercussion tied to the ineligibility of former Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush June 6, 2011.

Pretty busy day yesterday in the world of college football...

USC Football

Looking for the price tag on NCAA sanctions against USC's football and basketball programs -
USC continues to haul in big numbers on the non-academic side but how have the athletic donations been affected. I think the jury is till out on it but I wouldn't be surprised if athletic donations and sponsorships start to decrease in the future.

NCAA investigations

Oregon, Will Lyles, and the Slow Unraveling of a Scandal - Burnt Orange Nation
My friend Peter Bean has a pretty good take here - With Tuesday's news that the scouting reports the University of Oregon football program bought from Will Lyles were literally useless, the Ducks face a host of problems that look increasingly problematic.

Oregon releases more Will Lyles info -- and raises even more questions - Andy Staples
I would demand a refund! And how happy would Willie Lyles be to do that? - The University of Oregon's public records officer apologized for the omission. It turns out one booklet of outdated, possibly plagiarized information was not the only tangible product the Ducks' football program obtained for its $25,000 payment in March 2010 to Texas-based scouting service operator/alleged recruiting middleman Will Lyles.

Ducks' dated recruiting data: Honest mistake or mischief? - Dennis Dodd
