NCAA to announce Miami punishment Tuesday

Buckle up: The NCAA is expected to finally announce its sanctions on Miami athletics Tuesday, as first reported by the Miami Herald.

It’s been two-and-a-half years since the NCAA began its investigation into Nevin Shapiro’s dealings with Miami athletics, with numerous missteps along the way. But for the immediate future of Miami football — ranked No. 7 in the first BCS standings released Sunday — the NCAA’s sanctions wouldn’t necessarily keep them out of a bowl game this year.

If Miami is hit with a bowl ban, it could appeal and still play in the ACC Championship and a bowl game this season, according to the Herald. ESPN’s bowl projections have Miami playing in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl against either South Carolina or Texas A&M, as of now. The 6-0 ‘Canes play Wake Forest at home this week before a Nov. 2 showdown with Florida State in Tallahassee.

The NCAA will release the sanctions Tuesday at 10 a.m. EST, and a news conference is expected Tuesday afternoon.

    What a joke!

    People are going to be really, really, really mad when it’s a pretty minimal punishment.

    Emmert doesn’t even have the guts to show up.

    This investigation is the very definition of swift justice. It only took them two and a half years? Good work, NCAA.

    About damn time.

    Given the outrageous, unethical behavior of the NCAA in this case, and the fact that Miami has already self-imposed serious penalties (three post-season games), any further punishment should be minimal… a few scholarships, if anything at all.

    They hammered themselves internally …….prob not much on top of that…..

    The NCAA should be put on probation for their handling of this case!

    I’ve hated Miami my whole life. But this whole thing is a joke, and I really feel bad for Canes fans.

    I heard Condalizza Rice was involved on the punishment committee.

    “missteps along the way.”

    lol. That’s like calling a tornado a “stiff breeze”.

    The idiots forgot about the Canes or finally realized they are rising in the poles and decided they better announce now than keep delaying their decision.

    Just imagine if they beat FSU and put themselves in the NC picture. Then the NCAA would look worse than they do already for announcing their decision anywhere around the Dec/Jan timeframe.

    I say take away some scholarships and call it a day.

    I certainly hope Emmert shows up, given this is the effective end of his leading the NCAA. If there are no additional penalties handed down, it just highlights the disgrace he has been in charge of. And if they do try to impose penalties, Miami will likely sue and still more NCAA incompetence will be showcased in court.

    Just like an old dog, Emmert will shortly be sent away to live on a nice farm someplace.

    The whole investigation is a joke, but even more so, how are there bowl projections already?

  14. thefiesty1 says: Oct 21, 2013 9:40 PM

    ’bout time. What’s the hold up? This is what happens when a committee is formed.

  15. soflosportsfan says: Oct 21, 2013 11:45 PM

    If the NCAA hand us a bowl ban it will be be appealed immediately, so its impact on the FSU game and polls will be minimal.
    I think the sanctions will be light giving the fact the NCAA doesn’t want another lawsuit on their hands for the crap they’ve pulled during the investigation. They basically took the word of a convicted felon whose life has been a lie

    As a Cane fan I feel like I should be more nervous but I’m simply not. I don’t see what teeth the NCAA thinks they still have in this…All this time that the NCAA has screwed this up over and over and over Miami has been punishing itself rather harshly.

    Maybe a couple scholly’s taken and recognition of time served but I can’t see much more. The only guy they have pointing fingers made his life thru lying and is a convicted felon. Anything harsher will lead to a court battle that will get ugly for the NCAA.

    UM has paid enough for this shoddy journalism by Yahoo based entirely on a convicted felon singing a jailbird tune because he was mad at the University for not aiding him as he was arrested for running a nearly BILLION dollar ponzy scheme.

    Sidenote: how the president and other politicians are never arrested for their TRILLION dollar ponzy schemes never ceases to amaze me.

    SunSentinel is running a “tell all” today. Basically Randy Phillips is making the point that the NCAA exploits players talent for a BILLION dollar cash cow that they and their ESPN cohorts make their living off of. But of course he says everything happened…blah blah blah. Hearsay, all hearsay…that is why the NCAA broke laws to try and convict UM in the court of public opinion.

    Still waiting for Yahoo to man up and go after an SEC school….scary territory there, they don’t play nice, people disappear….I am serious.

    Go Canes!

    BS Miami should have gotten what USC got as far as sanctions. Ridiculous

  20. 305fan says: Oct 22, 2013 9:50 AM

    Allow me to be the first one to tell 35longmiles and all you other death penalty wishing scum bags to go SUCK IT LOSERS!!!!!!

  21. chachooga says: Oct 22, 2013 10:09 AM


    did USC sit out two bowl games and have to sit out a Pac12 championship game???

    UM self imposed very harshly. USC did not. And there were no houses given to players parents or agents on the sideline at UM. It was one booster who is in jail for lying people out of a billion dollars….but now everyone believes his story?!?!

    @305fan True that! ha

  22. scbaby2013 says: Oct 22, 2013 7:34 PM

    @chachooga- ummm usc got their bcs championship taken away heisman taken away I think that’s more than what thug u suffered. So lets get this straight. Miami has more than one player take benefits from Shapiro and gets only 9 scholarships taken away and USC only one player take benefits from an agent and gets 30 scholarships take away. Wow the math makes no sense and neither does the decision. Glad Paul dee, former AD of Miami and the guy who handed usc their sanctions, is dead and is taking the death penalty for Miami since NCAA doesn’t have the guts to do it
