Seantrel should probably sign/transfer to UNC! Him and James Hurst would be sex..
If I remember correctly, USC and Miami were his top two choices so Im guessing he would go to Miami if he goes anywhere but who knows.

Now, I don't have the time or resources to go about looking up how much certain football programs generate in revenue vs. how much they spend on players' scholarships. But most BCS universities will probably spend between $1-4M per yera in scholarships. I'd be interested to see how much certain programs generate by themselves, and then how much their ADs generate in total.

I'm wondering to anyone who thinks college athletes should be compensated further (not just Brodeur, anyone who feels this way), on how/how much you feel they should be compensated. I think it'd be an interesting discussion to see how valuable we feel certain athletes would be worth with relation to revenues.

Fairly sure Ohio State was his number two. For the love of God, don't let him transfer!

Yea, and that's before bowl prep./travel expenses are taken out. Iowa, for instance, cleared less than $100K I think from the Orange Bowl.

As to Seantrell, his second place was most definitely Ohio St. Also, if he has started practicing this spring/summer, I don't think he can get out of his letter/transfer because it might be considered his first year has started. I could be wrong though.

I was told by Seantrel Henderson personally that his No. 2 choice was Miami, but maybe he was lying to me. He also told me the coaches assured him that nothing serious would happen to USC with the pending (at the time) sanctions.

I like how the spokesman of the NCAA infractions committee stated that he wants other programs to know if they cheat this punishment is out there for them.

Ohhhh, so basically we were made an example of? that's fair.

And to answer everyone's questions about reggie bush.. the marketing people felt they were owed 350,000 dollars from improper benefits. Reggie could have easily settled out of court and the whole thing probably would have dissoled away.

30 scholarships?!?!? for fuck's sake! why not just dissolve the entire football program?

**** the infraction's committee and the NCAA. and a big **** you to reggie bush. Now i could care less that you suck in the pros.

This was a lack of institutional control it had nothing to do with boosters giving players administering improper benefits.

Also, these cases involved only two players while SMU involved well over 20.

It is fair, considering how many rules were broken and the severity of the rules that were broken.

Yeah, poor USC. Now, it's only going to be eight top-100 players per class instead of 12. Exaggerate a bit more.

it's only an 85 man roster, including players able to transfer out free of will now...

USC could still lose the national championship.

They need the POC (don't know who they are) to meet and decide.

So where did Reggie Bush's car, limo, and his parent's rent free house come from if not boosters?

This also made it clear at least one member of the coaching staff was involved and they had exceeded coaching staff limitations as well.

It goes beyond just Reggie Bush.

**** USC... how long did we have to hear how clean the program was and nothing was ever going to come out of this and now they're asking for pity? Good luck.

Big programs like this are almost never targetted like this by the NCAA, which suggests that there was even more going on at USC than just what they are being punished for, but this is what was provable.

It won't be awarded, but there's no way teams won't try to claim it.

Same deal with the Heisman... if Bush loses it, they won't give it to anyone else, but I don't think they will take it away, which would be hilarious. Bush ***** the program and gets to keep his individual achievement while costing his teammates their title.

There's nothing in the 67-70 pages of the NCAA's findings on the investigation that directly states improper benefits from the school's boosters.

Yea, at first I was thinking it would be cool if VY got the Heisman after the fact, because had they waited till after the Rose Bowl he would have won it, but then again the NC winner would go to OU, a catch 22. So screw it, I don't even care anymore, as happy as I would be for VY to get a Hesiman, OU getting a NC in which they were blown the **** out would piss me off.

Actually alot of athletes say these things. I don't want to act like Bush is the first guy to receive benefits, but it's not like lots of high profile athletes don't get offered these things and say no all the time.

Does the "exceeding coaching staff limitations" thing stem from when Carroll would bring former NFL coaches on for a couple weeks as "consultants?"

For those who claim that the kids on the team are unfairly punished for something they didn't do, what the kids on the current roster did wrong was sign with USC knowing that potential sanctions were forthcoming. That USC was under investigation was no secret and if a kid chooses to believe what Kiffin says over his better judgment, I feel no sorrow for that person.

I don't hear a single Trojan looking inward in terms of what the universitiy could have done to avoid this situation. If Bush is driving around with a new car with new rims with a new stereo system and not a single adminstrator/coach/compliance officer wonders, "how did he afford that," there is something seriously wrong. To say "we didn't know" simply isn't good enough.

maybe I misheard, but I thought NFLN say that the punishment also had to do with how the locker room atmosphere of post games and post practices also played a factor. I thought they said something about it making the investigations more difficult.
