After the news of Penn State getting scholarships back starting next year, there are some schools out there with a legitimate beef with the NCAA. At the top of that list is USC who was also banned from bowl games in both 2010 and 2011 and was docked 30 scholarships over three years for Reggie Bush and O.J. Mayo taking money.
When Haden was asked about the news he had this to say:
I asked USC AD Pat Haden about the Penn State decision. He forced a smile and said, "I'd love to have some scholarships back."

Haden has a legitimate gripe here. Common sense tells you that covering up for a child abuser for years is worse than taking money. Also, can Bruce Pearl’s 3 year ban for lying about a BBQ be reviewed?
