The NCAA threw the book at the USC football program on June 10 with a two-year bowl ban, four years' probation, loss of scholarships and the forfeit of an entire year's games for improper benefits to Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush dating to the Trojans' 2004 national championship. USC was penalized for a lack of institutional control in the ruling by the NCAA after its four-year investigation. The report cited numerous improper benefits for Bush and former basketball player O.J. Mayo, who spent just one year with the Trojans. Bush eventually returned his trophy to the Heisman Trophy trust.
