Is their any surprise that it came to this with USC? After the NCAA denied Southern California's appeal of sauctions imposed a year ago the next dominoe fell.
The Presidential Oversight Committee of the BCS vacated USC's 2005 Orange Bowl, their 2006 Rose Bowl appearance and Southern Cal's 2004-05 BCS National Championship.
“The BCS arrangement crowns a national champion, and the BCS games are showcase events for post-season football,” said BCS Executive Director Bill Hancock in a statement released by the BCS. “One of the best ways of ensuring that they remain so is for us to foster full compliance with NCAA rules. Accordingly, in keeping with the NCAA’s recent action, USC's appearances are being vacated.
“This action reflects the scope of the BCS arrangement and is consistent with the NCAA’s approach when it subsequently discovers infractions by institutions whose teams have played in NCAA championship events.”
Therefore USC's 55-19 win over Oklahoma in the 2005 Orange Bowl and their BCS national championship never happen. This video below is just a figment of our imagination.
And Texas won the BCS national championship defeating some team in red helmets and jerseys 41-38 in the 2006 Rose Bowl.
