« Does UM's delay in announcing bowl decision bode well for the Hurricanes? | Main | VIDEO: Al Golden, Stephen Morris, Mike James react to bowl ban »

UM elects to skip post-season again

Here is the official release from the school sent this morning:

The University of Miami has made the decision to withhold the football team from bowl consideration for the 2012 postseason. The decision was made in response to the ongoing NCAA inquiry and the University has informed both the NCAA and the Atlantic Coast Conference of its decision. The decision also means that should the Miami football team qualify for the ACC Championship Game, it will not be eligible to participate. Interim Director of Athletics Blake James informed the team of the decision this morning, two days after the Hurricanes became bowl eligible with their sixth victory of the season.

The unprecedented decision to voluntarily withhold the football team from a second consecutive postseason was made by University leadership, including President Shalala, the Office of the General Counsel and Department of Athletics leaders. Considerable deliberation and discussion based on the status of the NCAA inquiry went into the decision-making process and, while acknowledging the impact that the decision will have on current student-athletes, coaches, alumni and fans, a determination was made that voluntarily withholding the football team from a second postseason was not only a prudent step for the University to take but will also allow for the football program and University to move forward in the most expedited manner possible.

The University and President Shalala have been clear from the start of the inquiry that Miami will cooperate fully and will seek the truth, no matter where the path might lead and that the institution will be stronger because of it. The University has already taken proactive measures to ensure more strict compliance with NCAA rules and continues to evaluate further steps. No other self-imposed penalties have been issued at this time and to continue to protect the integrity of the inquiry, the University will have no further comment.

BS...the university hasent even been served notice yet...this is all supposition that miami will be severly penalized going forward. they are trying to hedge the risk going forward by self-imposing. in the mean time they have destroyed their ability to recruit, slapped the class on 2012 right in the face and lastly left the most negative feeling on the team that one could ask for. The lawyers dont run the program..he does. shalala would do whatever golden asked for..its all BS....he is afraid to play fsu and get embarrased...he is trying to protect his own win/loss record...who does he think he is kidding.

Canekiller you are so Moronic and Obsessive that ClUcks like you need a little venom for breakfast.

Did someone (Herbstreet) pick your group to play for the BCS Chamionship .....Lots of trouble winning games which showed that you all do not belong in the top 15.
All talent and such a waste....

No site to talk about anything so you camp out here..so read all about our 'Canes and wish that you could have the support of fans as this site shows..

You are such a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOser. Fix you FESHWHO's before you cast any Spears... our 'Canes will be fine Thank you...and keep reading I am sure that your obsession with the Canes goes way back...but keep reading..Obsessive ClUck..keep reading...

the greatest recruting tool in the future living rooms is to beat fsu and claim our own bowl victory reguardless of what the ncaa does in the future....then the kids will recognize this is a team with character....now watch the landslide of de-commits...nobody will come here now....youll see.

golden played good cop/bad cop with the administration to cover his relationship with the team going forward....this should run him and his whole staff out of town for good....he is a cowardly leader..that is a fact

Too LATE

Gallows TOO LATE

The milk is spilt so you can't put it back in the bottle..
Ever hear of that Knowitall... NO BOWLS..

Commits need to talk to Morris, Bush, Johnson, Pierre,
and so many others who play hard and leave it all on the field..if you want to be a 'Cane, you WILL be a 'Cane.
No comments GALLOWS on the USF game?....
Thought so.
Go 'Canes Always

Gallo is correct - the recruits will see that the UM administration threw the current players under the bus - depriving them of a bowl game 2 years in a row and denying them a chance to play in the conference championship next year

and when the NCAA finally announces the real bowl bans, I would expect many of the current players to exercise their right to transfer

I meant to say the conf. championship this year

rc: of course...the team is pissed now....the tweets are on overdrive.....parents are not going for this either....

here is my reponse:

ksu 24 - baylor 52
oregon 14 - stanford 17
alabama 24 - a&m 29
fla 27 - la lafayette 20 (can you believe that)

mia ? - fsu (bryant is new DT)

why?

Why would you, SUSAN continue to ask Al Golden during his meeting at practice, about the job AGAIN? LEAVE THE MAN ALONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Unbelievable! You ever heard the statement, "Beating a dead horse"?????

Just makes my blood boil when I listen to these so called "beat" writers asking questions like this. At this point I am officially DONE with The Herald. Just as Al said last year when asked a question by Susan, his immediate response was "I don't read The Herald" and with good reason. Pathetic and goodbye!

Eudora if the check bounced why did they return it?? Really!!!!

Let's face it, a 5 loss season (6 with a loss to FSU in Charlotte) gets us to the Micron PC Bowl in frozen Boise, ID. I'd rather fix the NCAA problem now than watch us play in a pathetic low tier bowl. If Ohio State hadn't been so arrogant they might be playing for a national championship this year. I'd hate for that to be us by being greedy today.

They didn't. That $50,000 wasn't part of the $83,000 payment to Tabas, the bankruptcy trustee.

I understand why they did it, It would be very harsh of ncaa to ban miami from a third postseason. They didn't hit usc or ohio state that hard. That said osu is the place to look they are unbeaten but can't play for national title or big 10 title, Because they didn't impose last year. This team will be much better next year. Would anyone rather lose a chance to go to a better bowl next year for going this year? i don't think so.

GREAT MOVE AND ALL REAL CANES FAN KNOWS IT. THIS TEAM IS YOUNG AND TALENTED AND AS OF RIGHT NOW THE CLEAR CUT FAVORITE TO WIN THE ACC COASTAL NEXT YEAR. YEAH I KNOW ABOUT NC BUT THEY WON THIS YEAR BECAUSE OF MISSED FIELD GOALS AND MORRIS GOT HURT. THEY COULD ONLY SCORE 18 PTS ON A BAD DEFENSE! C'MON NEXT YEAR WE WILL CRUSH THEM! VT HAS TO HOPE THOMAS STAYS BUT LOOK AT THE TWO TEAMS WE SHOULD HAVE BEATEN THEM THE LAST TWO YEARS. FLA ST? STILL GOOD BUT E.J MANUEL IS GONE. BEST TIME TO PLAY THEM TWICE IS NEXT YEAR! AND WE WILL WIN BOTH GAMES! ND NO OL, NO MATEO, NO SECONDARY! EVERYONE HAS TO HOPE THESE YOUNG PLAYERS DON'T IMPROVE BECAUSE IF THEY CONTINUE TO STCK TOGETHER YOU ARE LOOKING AT A EASY 10-11 WIN TEAM. A WIN SATURDAY GIVES THE CANES 7-5 RECORD WITH A BAD DEFENSE! WHAT HAPPENS IF THE DEFENSE IMPROVES! JEDD FSH HAS DONE AN OUTSTANDING JOB WITH THE QB THE LAST TWO YEARS NO QUESTION! HE TOOK A HOPELESS J-12 AND HE TURNED HIM INTO A GOOD QB UP TIL THE LAST GAME. TIS YEAR DESPITE NOT PLAYING IN SPRING LOOK AT MORRIS PROGRESSION! ANY IMPROVEMENT AND WE ARE LOOKING AT A 25-30 TD MAN! THE DEFENSE! DIFFERENT STORY BUT WITH EXPERIENCE COMES SIZE(NATURAL PROGRESSION) AND BETTER TECHNIQUE PLUS BETTER KNOWLEDGE OF GAME TIME SITUATIONS! NOW CAN YOU IMAGINE WHAT DUKE,DORSETT,AND THAT GROUP WILL DO NEXT YEAR? LISTEN IT WILL BE FUN AND FAST IN THE SUN NEXT YEAR GET READY! STOP CRYING,ACCUSING,AND COMPLAINING AND COME OUT AND SUPPORT THESE GUYS NEXT YEAR! FOR NOW GO BEAT DUKE AND GO GET YOUR CHAMPIONSHIP! THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN US AND NC IS WE WERE ELIGIBLE THEY WASN'T AND WE CHOSE NOT TO REPRESENT! THEY HAD NO CHOICE! GO CANES GO GET YOUR COASTAL DIVISION CHAMPIONSHIP! WHETHER ACKNOWLEDGED OR NOT WE KNOW!!!

Moron did it again, claiming Duke is their bowl game that means you loose to Duke.
Why assume your sorry canes will be better next year, every year is the same "wait til next year" and you still sUck next year just like last year.
Many players and recruits will transfer like at PSU without penalty once sanctions hit, you will continue to be bad for years to come.
Actually you should have waited for the outcome of the Duke game this is the closest you will be to an ACC ship game for a long time.
Scary that Duke looms so large. Duke! Pathetic.
Seems like Golden Balls didn't have a choice, it all came down from Shalala, too bad.

Mighty Duke awaits you, be scared, very scared.
Bunch of dUmb clUcks

Gallo "Curse",

Showing how much of a mole you are once again huh? Can't believe these hacks allow you to stick around. You sure as hell aren't a fan of the Canes.

No real fan would support backing into an ACC championship game with 5 losses rather than self-imposing and getting this NCAA witch hunt behind the program. You're just pissed your Noles have no ammo this recruiting cycle even after they crapped the bed again with the weakest pathetic excuse of a schedule in history. LOL!

Golden can focus on recruiting while the youngsters get busy bulking up for next season. Get ready for FSwho to take backseat to the Canes next season. Jimbo is done! FSwho is toast!

Right move, we have to do it or they will kill us. It has never been done before. Sure OSU wishes they had taken a ban last year. Feel great about this very young team, major talent in place for future. They will get stronger and we will be back in the hunt. Very happy with Coach Golden, he cares and is making all the right moves.

Look we're rebuilding and already proved we can play with most teams. Will definitely be better next year. Golden already figuring in sanctioned scholie numbers, but we gotta get really good players with those scholies. We can't afford any duds in the next two classes because you can see the effect on So Cal even with really good classes. Eventually the numbers game catch up with you, thats why they do it.

Its a scandal for the school and shes there accepting a check. She hired the ad, shannon, and shes involved in every major decision. This brings thevwhole school down so she has to go.

Man you girls have a lock on Morons, check this out: "Look we're rebuilding and already proved we can play with most teams. Will definitely be better next year"

Now for reality:
You have proved you struggle to beat weak arse ACC teams like BC, Va Tech and Ga Tech. All close games against putrid competition.
You have proved you will always lose to one or two bad ACC teams like UVA this year and Maryland and BC last year.
You have proven you will get blown out by any good team you play. Like KSU, ND and FSU this year.
How can you say you will definitively be better next year with less players coming back and less recruits coming in?
Bunch of dUmb and delUsional clUcks.
