USC Football 'Vacates' Nat'l Championship Win

6/10/2010 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The NCAA just blew up USC football's world by forcing the Trojans to vacate their victory in the '05 Orange Bowl ... a win that earned them the National Championship.

This all comes after an NCAA investigation concluded Reggie Bush got improper benefits while at USC.

According to the NCAA findings Bush received a car, and his family received a house and other financial benefits.

In addition to the National Championship game, USC must also vacate its 12 victories from the '05 season -- Reggie's last before turning pro -- and the university is banned from bowl games for the next 2 seasons, and on probation for 4 years.

Fight on.

NOTE: The NCAA specifically uses the word "vacate" instead of forfeit because the Trojan's opponents in those games don't get the win.

Such an over rated piece of sheet . I wish the NFL would find reason to kick his over paid ass to the curb. He is the highest paid utility (very limited at that) player in the league, thanks to his stardom from cheating. I see steroid scandel in his future.

I'm a USC graduate and loved going there, but they deserve this. Their sports departments are less than honest. My dad remembers Reggie Bush driving around in a brand new car right after he signed with USC. My brother in law's kid couldn't get into the school with his grades alone and so he tried to buy him in on a volleyball scholarship. The kid never played volleyball.

always the black guys who do illegal stuff that comes back to ruin their Alma Matters. Never hear of the white QB tacking a free Hyundai or getting they're broke parents rent paid while in college. Such losers. I bet Pete Carrol is smiling. that s*** bag knew this was coming. he jumped ship.

Ummm... the Trojans didn't win the national Championship in '05! Texas beat them? I don't think they can strip that from them if they didn't win it in 05?

Not only do they have to give up the National Championship but they also have pay back the millions it received for playing in and winning the game!

If you cant take the heat, get out of the kitchen. Pete Carroll knew this would be coming. Why do think he jumped ship? Once again USC lives up to its acronym: University of Spoiled Children!!

Where's Mike Garrett through all this?? Holding his mouth because he knows he was in on this and didn't do anything to stop such blatant violations or at least question them?



Now that USC's clock has been cleaned out, time for Mike Garrett to clean his desk out.
