Report: Miami doesn’t expect NCAA ruling until 2013

Al Golden AP

If the NCAA decides to punish the University of Miami athletics program for allegations of impermissible benefits received by players, it may not happen this year.

A Miami Herald column from earlier this week states “a high-level UM official said the school hasn’t been given an updated timetable by the NCAA but will not be surprised if it doesn’t receive its punishment until after National Signing Day in February.”

In 2011 just before the start of the season, the program came under the microscope when Yahoo! Sports released a damning feature connecting allegations of benefits deemed impermissible by the NCAA to former booster Nevin Shapiro. In the months following the feature, and with the NCAA thoroughly investigating the program, UM self-imposed a bowl ban following the 2011 season hoping it would soften any potential sanctions handed down.

Though there’s been some talk of the Hurricanes receiving the infamous Death Penalty, it’s far to early in the process to know if that is even a possibility (it isn’t). It should also be noted that UM has yet to receive a formal Notice of Allegations from the NCAA.

    The Yahoo report came out last year (2011) before the season, not 2010.

    If this is true that the report will not come out till after signing day, it puts all lot of recruits in a bind if there are stiff penalties…. In the USC sanctions only juniors and seniors could transfer without sitting out a year…

    It makes you wonder why the NCAA is so slow doing investigations. The Sandusky debacle became public after the Shapiro mess. Sandusky is already halfway through his trial. Why would the NCAA need another 8 months to finish their investigation?

    Haha. Let these rudderless thugs continue to stew in the mess of their own making. This will continue to erode their already feeble recruiting. Warms my heart in a special way. []_[] will continue to flutter downward. Eventually you will come to terms with being just another middle of the road program. Permanently.

    35longinches,

    Its good to see our most loyal fan back on a Miami thread. Its ok you can admit it after all you are always looking for Miami news on ALL the sports columns. I did however ask you several times now and for some reason you can never answer the question. Besides cheering for Miami who is your other most favorite team ?

    The slowness stems from the fact that most those players mentioned by Shapiro are in the NFL now. The NCAA does not have any subpoena power over ex-players. Those players are loyal to the U. So most of the story is centered around accusations without credible evidence. Multiple players last year were suspended from 1 to 6 games for receiving improper benefits. The NCAA could cite lack of institutional control but no coverup existed like at Ohio State. Any penalty would be less than that.
