So USC just got not only slapped in the face, but beaten with a bat. After violating a number of rules from 2004-2009, the USC football program will have a post-season ban for the next 2 seasons, as well as a loss of 30 scholarships over the next 3 years. Well, when you get in the public eye for the wrong reasons one too many times you’re gonna get punished (see Ben Roethlisberger).
Full list of punishments after the jump!
• A postseason ban in football following the 2010 and 2011 seasons.
• A loss of 30 total football scholarships over the 2011, 2012 and 2013 seasons.
