So we are waiting for the boom to fall from the NCAA on USC. I'm curious about the timing of the sanctions, National Signing Day, and current recruits. Say, for instance, that USC was banned from post-season bowl play from 2010 through 2013, but this wasn't announced until March 1. Would that mean that it was just SOL for recruits who signed this February? Recruits could legitimately say, "this wasn't what I signed up for." Obviously, you could argue they "should have known," but I'm sure USC is blowing smoke up recruit's butts, saying that nothing much is going to come of this investigation.
