USC has appealed the NCAA's stiff sanctions against them, acknowledging that some violations occurred, but then saying "We disagree with many of the findings in the report from the NCAA Committee on Infractions and assert that the penalties imposed are too severe for the violations identified and are inconsistent with precedent in similar cases."
According to USCFootball.com (the USC Rivals.com site), the NCAA made some rather stark mistakes during the investigation and reporting of USC's infractions. If some of the mistakes are proven correct, then it could not only result in, but warrant a lesser punishment.
