The NCAA should consider taking a very hard line on extra benefits cases. Maybe kids would think twice about holding out their hand if they knew they would immediately forfeit all eligibility in a zero-tolerance environment. The slap on the wrist style punishment that kids on the take get isn't enough to discourage the behavior. In fact, it is usually so weak that they feel they would be missing out on the extra perks if they don't get involved.
I'm sure missing a series of unsupervised voluntary workouts this summer will really make Jarrett regret the low-rent, high living situation he shared with Lienart. Next year their will be dozens of USC kids wanting a piece of the Reggie Bush/Dwayne Jarrett type action.
I believe you are right . it's a 3 year wait .
