USC has delivered self-imposed penalties to itself thanks to how former coach Tim Floyd got his hands on OJ Mayo (he paid him).

The self-imposed sanctions include:

• No postseason play in 2009-10, including the Pac-10 Conference Tournament.

• A reduction of one scholarship for the 2009-10 and 2010-11 academic years.

• Reducing the number of coaches permitted to recruit off-campus by one during the summer of 2010.

• Reducing the number of recruiting days for the 2010-11 academic year, to 110 from 130.

Naturally, Floyd and Mayo are both in the NBA (Floyd is an assistant coach, Mayo is starring for the Grizzlies while making millions) and won't get penalized for anything, so once again justice is served. Sort of, but not really.
