If you’ll recall, Scott had some strong words following the rejection of USC’s appeal, saying "I fully expect every NCAA member institution to be held to the same high standards."
And he’s well aware that the NCAA didn’t find Ohio State guilty of Lack of Institutional Control or Failure to Monitor — even though its head coach knowing played ineligible players and then lied about it.
"You can be sure I’m tracking it," he said.
In fact, he called Emmert after tOSU news broke on Friday.
The takeaway? Scott said there’s "a misperception in the media about the finality" of tOSU situation.
While he declined to get specific, I took his comment to mean that Emmert indicated the NCAA could tack on penalties in the cash-for-memorabilia case.
Scott has USC’s back on this one, no question.
