By creating an environment that allowed Reggie Bush and OJ Mayo to receive thousands of dollars of extra benefits, USC got a huge recruiting boost. The message was "come here, you don’t need to worry about those pesky NCAA rules, we don’t mind." If that was the core of the USC case, UCF should have gotten the death penalty.

Southern California might have had a laissez-faire attitude about who was in the locker room or around recruits, but the evidence that the school was actively promoting the violations was tenuous.
