Luke Campbell NCAA violation/UM fallout; Dolphins GM, Heat and broadcast notes

A six-pack of notes on a Friday night:

### UM said it might need to self-report a secondary NCAA violation committed when the mother of quarterback/UM oral commitment Brad Kaaya on Friday asked former rapper Luther Campbell to take pictures with them during Kaaya’s campus visit. But it wouldn’t jeopardize Kaaya’s eligibility if he ends up enrolling at UM.

It’s a violation because only school staff members and faculty are allowed to have contact with a recruit during an official visit.

A staffer witnessed the exchange and told UM associate athletic director Craig Anderson, who asked Campbell to leave. But UM said contrary to Campbell’s tweet, he wasn’t permanently banned from campus.

Campbell, who took the pictures with Kaaya and his mother, said on WINZ-940 that Kaaya told him he will visit UCLA and that he was “thinking about coming to Miami."

Campbell told Kaaya that offensive coordinator James Coley “is a great guy” and also mentioned Michael Irvin to Kaaya, hoping that would help Miami’s chances of landing him.

“I had a great conversation with the people there [at Miami],” Campbell tweeted tonight. “Time to move on.”

He also said “everything is cool with me [and] Miami.”

Campbell, who has criticized Al Golden in the past, has an unresolved defamation suit against Nevin Shapiro. Campbell previously was an assistant coach at Miami Northwestern High.

### Louisville, which has done as well recruiting South Florida as any school outside the state, is adding two familiar faces to new coach Bobby Petrino’s coaching staff: former Canes receiver Lamar Thomas (according to Thomas) and former Dolphins and FSU defensive back Terrell Buckley.

### Erik Spoelstra opted not to play Michael Beasley until the final 2:28 of tonight's win in Philadelphia and didn't play Greg Oden at all, even though he was available. Beasley entered having made only 6 of his last 22 shots over four games. Oden could be helpful Saturday against Charlotte's Al Jefferson…. Dwyane Wade said he won't play Saturday... Even as the Heat got back on track, Ray Allen’s slump continued. With a 1 for 7 night, he’s 9 for his last 52. "That's the least of our worries," Spoelstra said... Please see the last post for a comprehensive look at major looming issues for the Heat.

### Having interviewed seven candidates for their general manager job, the Dolphins are now in the process of cutting that list to two or three. Browns assistant general manager Ray Farmer will be one of the finalists, NFL Network reported tonight. Farmer impressed the Dolphins during his interview and Carl Peterson, who is advising Stephen Ross on the search, is a big fan of Farmer’s work, having worked with him in Kansas City.

CBS' Jason LaCanfora says Farmer "will probably be the guy hired." But Tampa Bay's Dennis Hickey also impressed the Dolphins during his interview Friday, as our Armando Salguero noted.

### The NFL has invited the major over-the-air networks, ESPN and Turner to bid on a partial or full Thursday night package for next season. The games reportedly would likely be simulcast on NFL Network, which has carried the Thursday night package the past several years.

ABC (out of the NFL business for several years), CBS, NBC, Fox and Turner reportedly are all expected to bid. Turner is considered a long shot, because the NFL is said to prefer a non-cable partner.

### Tim Brando, CBS’ long-time college football studio host, is leaving the network to pursue other opportunities. Brando’s exit follows CBS Sports Network’s decision to no longer simulcast his radio show.

I'll bet you any amount of money Beckham doesn't wind up building a 45,000 capacity soccer stadium and Miami doesn't wind up playing there.

The interest and investors just flat out aren't there. He's already spending $25M of his own fortune to buy the franchise, he's not going to front an entire stadium and Miami isn't buying him one after the Marlin Park fiasco.

If David Beckham actually builds a 45,000 (and HELL no it's not going to be 75,000) seat stadium then I'll agree there's a possibility UM could move there

just a matter of time until FIU starts flexing its muscle and makes use of the infinite resources that comes with being the nation's seventh largest university (2/3 part-time students) ... Those that disagree still think UMiami's demise is Larry Coker's fault instead of realizing college football is a numbers game that rides on the cumulative and compounding effects of a large university.

SEGREGATION FOREVER

Beckham reported to have said "Come On Chelsea!"
It is unknown wwhat impact this might have on Stadium decision.

So the Canes are on NCAA Probation through 2016, meaning ANY violation the next 3 years no matter how small is a serious one. How in the World does the compliance department even let a Booster like Luke within 500 feet of the Cane Athletic facility during recruiting visitations is just beyond moronic and deserves a penalty. I say that as a Cane fan hoping those Miami administrators get things fixed over there so we don't ever have to go through the NCAA garbage we did the last 3 years. And If the NCAA does hit us with recruiting sanctions even just for just this "minor" infraction, we only have ourselves to blame and deserve it for total and utter incompetence.

Reality Bites

Now hold on there canefan. If the NCAA comes down on you for allowing Uncle Luke free access to UM recruits( just like he's had in the past and just like Nevin had after him) then you will turn it around and blame the NCAA. Just like you di with Nevin.
Hey Uncle Luke was just taking pics, posing with the fam you know. The evil NCAA probably set him up.
It not your fault the UM administration appears clueless. It'not your fault that you have no institutional control. It's not your fault that the blind and thedumb are leading you. Blame the NCAA. If that is not enough the blame Uncle Luke. What does he think, that he can break the rules in the open? Come on SkyWalker use some discretion.
Sorrriest bunch I have ever seen

Not our rival

Hush nerd.

Dom

The guy is a booster, he is allowed on campus. He didnt give money. He took a photo. happens every day at every school, when they take photos with ex players that are in the NFL but are school boosters.

Signing day is coming so negativity rules. MOVE ON, NOTHING TO SEE HERE> U GUYS ARE IDIOTS......we have one of the best classes since 2008 coming in, with 12 currently rated on the espn 300, 2 on the RIvals Juco 100, and others all highly regarded as the best in the area they come from.

johnnie j

Reality Bites is trollin again.He knows his sorry Gators are going to have ANOTHER bad year despite whatever recruits they get.He just enjoys being annoying because that s himself doubting his own importance in the world.All this with little matter giving his football biases against a school he is VERY envious and jealous of quite obviously.(Also because he s very embarassed by Muschumps coaching acumen.)Gators are drowning in a Hurricane.Too funny.

NJshoreCane

U just can't help Urselves... The Canes, just months after finalizing their NCAA sanctions, are back to their old ways and commit a serious recruiting violation providing on campus visiting recruits extra benefits from Booster Luther Campbell...

Not sure which is worse, the fact that Miami is still recruiting illegally, Kaaya is going to decommit and flip to UCLA anyways, or the fact that Kaaya's Mom was the dirtbag chick in the movie Friday !
------------------------------------------------------

Recruiting violations, sanctions, attendance, UM's recruits, ACC vs SEC, blah, blah, blah...
You are so obsessed with all this secondary stuff that you fail to pay attention to the one thing that REALLY matters....
Miami vs uF results.
Miami 21- uF 16
Miami 7-1 since 1986, INCLUDING,
Miami 27- uF 10 in the 2004 Peach Bowl
Miami 37- uF 20 in the 2000 Sugar Bowl

Keep on obsessing because about our recruiting and some casual pisture because, at the end of the day, all the other stuff reall doesn't matter.

Your're embarrassing yourself...again!!!

HaHa!!! GO CANES!!!
