USC Trojans juniors, seniors can transfer without sitting – ESPN Los Angeles.

Juniors and seniors to-be on the USC Trojans‘ football team, hit with a two-year postseason ban among other punishments, will be allowed to transfer to other FBS programs without having to sit out a season, the NCAA clarified to ESPN on Friday.

“The second school would have to submit a waiver asking to waive the year in residence, but NCAA rules allow for this waiver to be granted if a student-athlete’s first school has a postseason ban in their sport,” NCAA spokeswoman Stacey Osburn said in an e-mail to ESPN’s Joe Schad.

While I am glad that the NCAA is lessening the punishment on the current kids, I think the school and the coaches need stiffer penalties.  They cheated… if they have to vacate wins from 2004, they should also “vacate” the money that they made from playing those games.

Oh and if Pete Carroll (or John Calipari) want to coach in college again, make the hiring school have to pay a penalty as well.
