Source: USC Losing 'More Than 20 Football Scholarships'

While USC has not officially confirmed if it has even received the NCAA's report -- when reached for comment, Athletic Director Mike Garrett said "We are looking at things right now. That's about all I can say." -- more of the report detailing their punishment for violations stemming from 2006 continue to leak out.

The latest, from Gary Klein, the USC beat writer for the Los Angeles Times, is that the Trojans are losing "more than 20 football scholarships" (in addition to the two-year bowl ban), with the possibility of more punishment still to come. 

Limited recruiting contacts, probation and forfeiture of victories are also among the penalties regarded as possibly in play.

USC sources, who requested anonymity because they are not authorized to speak about the situation publicly, said they were bracing for the worst. One said the school probably would utilize an appeal process.

Asked if the sanctions were appropriate, a source said, "It depends how you look at it. It is if you're a UCLA fan."

Zing.
