We knew this was coming, just nobody knew when. The USC (Southern Cal) Football looks like they will be at home for the next two bowl seasons.
According to a plethora of reports, Lane Kiffin and his boys will be feeling the effects of following Pete Carroll for at least two years. They apparently will be banned from post-season bowl games, lose some games they won, lose 30 scholarships and various other restrictions including probation.

Some additional details from CBS2 in LA RIGHT HERE
