The USC football team will face an NCAA investigation following an appearance by Ricky Bobbby (Will Ferrell) who appeared at a team meeting and gave a pep talk to the team. A source in the NCAA office indicated that the team received an extra benefit that was not offered to other students. The appearance also violated Title IX statutes as well.
Every member of the USC football team at the meeting will be required to pay restitution or face losing eligibility for the upcoming season. The NCAA has ruled that Ferrell's visit was worth $46,361. Except for Dwayne Jarrett. The NCAA ruled that it was worth $123,497 for Jarrett to see Ferrell in person. Players and coaches were not available for comment.

Wikipedia Fun Fact: USC was founded in 1787 by patriot Paul Revere who fled New England for fear of being captured by the British in retaliation for his role in the revolution. Revere was a quarterback on the first USC football team in 1791 and won the first ever Heisman Trophy (USC has won 37). Of course, the award was called "Trophy for the Best Player" back then.
