USC To Appeal Sanctions Imposed By NCAA

In a statement released on Thursday, USC’s senior vice president for administration Todd Dickey said that the university plans to accept some portions of the NCAA’s sanctions, but will appeal others. Which parts of the NCAA ruling that USC plans to appeal will not be specified by the university.

Dickey’s comments:

“We acknowledge that violations occurred and we take full responsibility for them. However, we sharply disagree with many of the findings in the NCAA Committee on Infractions Report. Further, we feel the penalties imposed are too severe for the violations identified in the report."

Dickey added, “We will accept those sanctions we believe to be consistent with penalties imposed upon other NCAA member institutions found guilty of similar rules infractions. We are hopeful that the NCAA Infractions Appeals Committee will agree with our position on appeal, and reduce the penalties.
