Default College Craziness

I don't know if any of you guys pay attention to college sports but there's a lot of stuff going on. Most of this has to do with football but basketball will be affected.

Big 12 on the verge of collape, a great bball program in Kansas has nowhere to go
Nebraska to Big Ten (Mizzou, Notre Dame, Rutgers are possibilities)
Pac Ten taking Colorado and possibly another 5 Big 12 schools (Texas, A&M, Tech, Oklahoma, OK St
rest of the Big 12 teams might go to the Mountain West Confrence (not good for Kansas)
and it looks like other confrences might be expanding or collapsing

and this

The NCAA threw the book at storied Southern California on Thursday with a two-year bowl ban, four years' probation, loss of scholarships and forfeits of an entire year's games for improper benefits to Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush dating to the Trojans' 2004 national championship.

USC was penalized for a lack of institutional control in the ruling by the NCAA following its four-year investigation. The reported cited numerous improper benefits for Bush and former basketball player O.J. Mayo, who spent just one year with the Trojans.

The coaches who presided over the alleged misdeeds -- football's Pete Carroll and basketball's Tim Floyd -- left USC in the past year.

The penalties include the loss of 30 football scholarships over three years and vacating 14 victories in which Bush played from December 2004 through the 2005 season.

USC beat Oklahoma in the BCS title game on Jan. 4, 2005, and won 12 games during Bush's Heisman-winning 2005 season, which ended with a loss to Texas in the 2006 BCS title game.
some players mimght leave USC now
