The University of Southern California’s three-day hearing before the N.C.A.A.’s committee on infractions ended Saturday night with little indication of what is ahead for the Trojans’ football and men’s basketball programs. When the N.C.A.A. infractions committee typically holds hearings, numerous universities are lined up to appear. But David Price, the N.C.A.A.’s vice president for enforcement services, said the meeting was dedicated to U.S.C. Price, who has worked for the committee for 11 years, said, "This is the longest one since I’ve been here." The N.C.A.A.’s decision on U.S.C.’s punishment, if it decides to punish the program, will not come for at least six weeks. The severity of any punishment will probably be tied to how much coaches and university officials knew about the violations. The timetable after the committee’s hearings is typically six to eight weeks, but an N.C.A.A. spokeswoman said that complicated cases could take longer.

New York Times: N.C.A.A. Ends Hearing About U.S.C. Infractions It looks like we are almost at the end of the USC saga, and at this point the only thing that remains is the announcement of their fate. I imagine there is a slight possibility that they skate, but given the severity of the charges, the general public conviction that they are guilty as hell, and the amount of time that the NCAA has devoted to this thing (both in the hearing itself and otherwise), I imagine the smart money is on USC getting hit very hard. One way or the other, we'll see soon enough.
