More On Committee

The NCAA appeals report noted that Susan Cross Lipnickey, a professor from Miami of Ohio, recused herself from the committee. It did not list a reason why she removed herself. She was replaced by William Hoye, executive vice president for administration, planning and legal affairs at the Institute for the International Education of Students.

Kiffin Curve

USC athletic director Pat Haden spoke about whether Lane Kiffin should be judged differently because of probation.
“It has to be graded on the curve to a certain extent, right?” Haden said. “It’s not entirely fair what he’s going to be competing against. This is still USC. I expect we’ll play really hard next year.”

Scott On Sanctions

“These sanctions, notably the postseason ban, have a devastating effect on current student-athletes, most of whom were in elementary and junior high school at the time of the alleged violations. To me, that is a source of great frustration and disappointment. Going forward, we can and need to do better in terms of the enforcement process.”
— Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott

On Lack Of Institutional Control

Here’s the NCAA response on USC’s appeal that the lack of institutional control finding should be set aside:

“The university also argued the lack of institutional control finding should be set aside because some of the facts found by the Committee on Infractions did not constitute rules violations and that the Committee on Infractions did not consider a number of mitigating factors. The appeals committee, however, did not find any basis to reverse the finding.”
