USC’s Self-Imposed Sanctions After Mayo Scandal

After an internal investigation found that NCAA rules were violated while O.J. Mayo played for USC, the university has enacted a variety of self-imposed sanctions that include forfeiting all of their wins from the 2007-2008 season and a reduction in one scholarship for both the 2009 and 2010 seasons. Furthermore, USC will not play in any postseason games this year, including the Pac-10 Conference Championship.

The investigation was regarding Mayo’s involvement with Rodney Guillory, who became a USC booster as a result of his involvement in the recruitment of Mayo. Guillory was also accused of giving Mayo improper gifts, such as money and a television.

The sanctions only affect the USC men’s basketball team.
