I’ve been critical of Reggie Bush for trying to revise history but I’ve always said the NCAA was wrong with its draconian sanctions of the USC football program.
Now we see the double-standard at work again today: The NCAA could not conclude Baylor violated rules when it failed to report/address allegations of sexual assault committed on campus. The school got four years of probation and a $5,000 fine.
It could not conclude Baylor violated NCAA rules? Just like North Carolina’s systemic academic fraud was not a violation.
But USC lost 30 scholarships over 3 years and got a 2-year bowl ban for the Bush case? Are you kidding me?
