Appeal: Larry Scott


Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott released this statement about the NCAA's ruling on USC's appeal:

"We join the fans, alumni, staff and leadership of USC in being extremely disappointed with today's decision. I want to state emphatically that our conference is committed to adhering to the highest ethical standards and compliance with NCAA rules. USC's new leadership has certainly demonstrated this with its handling of the sanctions and by establishing a new culture of compliance for its athletic programs with its win-by-the-rules approach.

"I respect USC's decision to take the high ground and not pursue any further recourse to the NCAA ruling. At the same time, I fully expect that every NCAA member institution be held to the same high standards. 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."


Nice comment, but it would have been nice to have seen some open support through this whole process with the NCAA.

Otherwise, I think he is doing a great job.

I am very thank you to share this article, it’s very good, I hope you can split more, and I will carry on reading, thanks!
