So lets have some fun!

All the haters are now posting prediction threads in regards to what our punishment will be when the sanctions are announced, rumored to be this week.

Here is what Dufresne thinks...

I say 5 yrs, bowl ban, 21 scholarships

He is known hater so I would expect nothing less.

Here is what I think...

2-3 years probation loss of 3-5 schollies a year...they can vacate the wins and awards all they want, I could care less, we all saw the games…

The NCAA has to be careful here. They like their money. Nailing SC too hard could be an issue.

1) USC is THE football program on the west coast and the NCAA doesn’t want to lose their drawing power in regards to $$$$. I mean its not like those clowns across town could fill the void…at least not with that clown of a coach who has a QB that will be running for his life all season because he doesn't have an O line to protect him.

2) If hit too hard, USC will go to court to fight the charges, and they have some deep pockets. At that point they would have nothing to lose so they would go for broke. Even if they lost, and there is a pretty good chance they would lose, it could expose a lot about the NCAA and their style of investigating and the NCAA DOES NOT WANT THAT.

More important does anyone think the NCAA will give back the money they made off the 2005 season? What about any future money they could make off of playing reruns of the 2006 MNC game...I mean at that point the game really didn't take place, right?

So, fire away. No prediction will be deemed too lax or too severe. I have not yet decided what the winning prediction will be awarded. Hit me up offline for your suggestions...
