BREAKING NEWS: NCAA to announce Miami Hurricanes' sanctions tomorrow

Hurricanes fans, brace yourself.

Your waiting is nearly over.

Tomorrow is the day the world will learn of the University of Miami's punishment in its NCAA case involving convicted felon and former Hurricanes booster Nevin Shapiro.

The NCAA just confirmed the Miami Herald report that on Tuesday it will publicly reveal UM's punishment. Shortly after the written report is released, protocol is that the NCAA will have a teleconference for the media only. 

All UM's sanctions will be listed on the written infractions report, with background on the case and a synopsis of why the punishments have been inflicted -- in other words, everything that the NCAA's Committee on Infractions says UM did wrong. 

The school is informed of its specific penalties on the same day the media/public receives the information, just earlier. But with all the information that has been leaked over the past couple of years in this case, maybe UM knows a bit -- or more than a bit -- of what's coming. 

No one outside of the NCAA and perhaps UM, and those who might get leaked the information, knows what's coming. UM could appeal all or part of its penalties. 

The Canes are expected to get scholarship sanctions, and possibly coaching and recruiting restrictions. Some coaches who have moved on to other programs are expected to get Show Cause penalties, meaning they effectively will be barred from coaching in college for a set amount of years.

Some are wondering if any of the former players who were involved with the scandal will be barred from campus or from attending games, or if any victories or records will be vacated. The Canes could also be hit with financial penalties

   "I mean, the school, they've done so much already to avoid a harsh penalty by punishing themselves, so hopefully [it's] not too bad,'' said Miami Dolphins defensive end Olivier Vernon, one of the former UM players suspended for accepting improper benefits from Shapiro.

   "It's kind of ridiculous in a way, Vernon said of the case taking so long to be decided, but I guess that's how the NCAA operates. You've got to let it take its course.'' 

  One way or the other, the waiting will be over, and UM can get on with its post-sanctions life.

The Hurricanes would have 15 days to submit in writing its intent to appeal any or all of the sanctions. If the Canes get another postseason ban (they already self-imposed bowl games after the 2011 and 2012 seasons, and the chance to play in the 2012 ACC title game), they could appeal it and pretty much ensure themselves the right to play in this postseason, as the appeals process takes several months.

Are you nervous? Relieved? 

Your thoughts on what will come tomorrow? 

Best realistic scenario? Worst scenario?

So what he's (d'o) trying to imply is that what we saw happened to our defense Thursday night (against UNC) had nothing to do with our (d'o) scheme/play calls?

We gave up 500 yards because guys didn't do what they were supposed to do?This is not championship mentality. Someone needs to let him know that.

Amen, the guy is a jerk who does not know beans about defense. And he blames others for his own shortcomings????????

A great leader takes blame for his own mistakes,
and gives credit to the troops when they win.
But the garbage managers always crap on the guys below him.

For all the Crap going on in Chapel Hill. You guys punished yourselves way more than the NCAA did them. Heck, their NCAA crimes dwarf what anyone else has done.

Our conference needs to fight for you guys just as much as more than they did UNC>

All this for some dinners, a boat ride and a total of 170,000 dollars? Wow big bad Miami,while the SEC with
Auburn and their QB Cam Newton walk, Alabama and paying it's players, Miss. St.,Auburn again with the paying of players (Muschamps still has $400.00 left any takers Gators?) and playing of players who failed drug test, UNC cheating so that players qualify academically, not under their jurisdiction? UT players admitting taking money from boosters,get real this is all just so ridiculous and biased.

NCAA sanctions are out!!!

Univ. of Miami will be burned down and the ground salted.

All Miami alumni will be executed.

All Miami National Championships will be taken away
and given to colleges who have never had one.

We are very capable of demolishing WF *if* we eliminate all the turnovers. We would have demolished UNC as well if Duke played through and Morris was average.

GT shut out Syracuse and scored 56 on them and our O scored 38 on GT after *four* turnovers. Look up the score of Clemson vs Syracuse. If we come out swinging on all fronts we can blow WF out. Is it guaranteed? No. But we can.

so we excused ourself from 2 bowls, 1 ACC champ game, penalized players involved...and Golden has cleaned up the locker room...
NCAA does hate our program; while many others are allowed to run rampant on campuses across the country.
timing is bad, but - when you know BAD NEWS is on the horizon....you can face it much better...expect the WORST from these clowns, and hope that some concessions are considered for what the university has already self-imposed...been upfront, did not run and hide, nor deny. Stand up actions...no matter what...adversity build character...Golden has it...and he is teaching it to our young Canes...

National Coalition Against Atletes

*Athletes

UM deserves what it gets. Should be the death penalty. No reason for these things in college football. Someone should have been paying attention. All staff, coaches, presidents, anyone involved should be banned(Pete Rose style), from college athletics. Sports Illustrated should do another Why Miami should drop football article. See ya losers

The Hurricanes met with the infractions committee in June, expecting an answer within eight weeks. More than 18 weeks have passed since.

For months, there have been signs that the NCAA -- which has dealt with one high-profile scandal after another in recent years, and has been widely criticized for how it handled many of them -- was looking to bring some big penalties against Miami.

According to documents reviewed by The Associated Press, the NCAA asked the Hurricanes to provide, among other things: Information about how many scholarships Miami is using in football and men's basketball this academic year, how many Miami plans to issue in those sports next year, details of all postseason play in the last four years, and a review of all games that the school expects to play on television in the next three years.

That suggests the NCAA was considering scholarship reductions, vacation of some records, and a TV ban as possible penalties.

Miami has maintained that self-imposed penalties -- including the suspensions of more than a dozen athletes, restitution in some cases, two missed football bowl games and a missed trip to the Atlantic Coast Conference football title game last year -- should be enough to atone for whatever rules were broken.

"We believe strongly in the principles and values of fairness and due process," university president Donna Shalala said Feb. 18, one day before the school received its allegations. "However, we have been wronged in this investigation, and we believe that this process must come to a swift resolution, which includes no additional punitive measures beyond those already self-imposed."

EXCITED!

Time to effn move on! :)

Continue to take it one game at a time. the NCAA will do what the NCAA will do, to the U or anyone else they want to. I'm just wondering how long it will take for the NCAA to find something wrong with Alabama, figuring, that they can't be that good without doing something wrong, can they? The only thing that the canes can do at this point is take it one game at a time, weather the storm, and move on. The NCAA has to rattle the sword, regardless of the fact, that their own people stepped over the line. It seems like they're learning from highre headquarter, never let a good scandle go to waste and it this case, if there is one and you can't get the goods, pay someone to get them for you, essentially, get the school by any means you can and then blame it on someone else. I'm more concerned how the team reacts to the upcoming game with WF than fsu. The fsu game will take care of itself all in good time. The next worry would be the va tech game.

Any more bowl bans and the UM needs to file a major law suit against the NCAA along with the ACC. They have a very good chance of winning the case.

How about investigating 20+ arrests ? A little further north of Miami

“We’ve had kids come and go like kids come and go from programs every year,” Golden said at the ACC media days in July. “But we’ve had not one kid walk into my office with his family and say I’m leaving ‘because I don’t know what the future is with the NCAA. It’s too tenuous, I want out.’”

there is it official...snactions had nothing to do with al golden ability to keep players or recruit

Mark..... that would be 30+ and counting!

Expect the worse
Hope for the best

The NCAA botched this investigation ..the can't use any information wrongfully obtained to penalize Miami ..this is gonna be a couple scholarships similar to what Ohio state got ...more good news...after tomorrow AL can finally take the tie off and start rockin the Dennis Erickson windbreaker...maybe even the Belichick hoody

If they come down hard, given the Canes' cooperation and self-imposed sanctions, why would any school under investigation even consider cooperating.

You can read my take on what to expect tomorrow by going here: http://miamihurricanesathletics.blogspot.com/2013/10/ncaa-report-to-be-released-tomorrow-10.html

Typical Miami people, breaking rules and expecting zero
punishment. Also blaming the NCAA. So you punished yourself.
Isn't that like a child getting into trouble then saying, mom "I will not
go out with my friends for two weekends?" You deserve every bit
of the sanctions you get. You danced to the music, now you got to pay
to the piper.....LOL

I am looking forward to this ending.

I believe that the NCAA will stick it to MIami as much as possible. Their obvious biases in the investigation suggest an anti Miami mission.

And, because the NCAA is losing credibility, Emmert will come down on the Canes to try to establish the importance of the NCAA in regulating athletics.

But I do hope I am very wrong and that they show better judgment....

Hey Shapiro, how's life the joint, little fella?

Jlo has been posting as me again i see....i have banned the ncaa from my budget. I wont buy any ncaa licensed gear and have told my family not to buy any as gifts. Hit them in the wallet....

ONE THING TO CONSIDER IS THAT IF THERE ARE ANY LEGAL RAMIFICATIONS THE U WILL SEEK THEM IF THE PENALTIES INCLUDE MORE BOWL BANS. THE NCAA KNOWS THEY SCREWED UP THE INVESTIGATION TO THE POINT THAT THEY MUST PENALIZED THE U IN SOME CAPACITY BUT IF THIS GETS ANY UGLIER ON THEIR(NCAA) PART NO OTHER SCHOOL WILL COOPERATE WITH THEM AND THE PUBLIC WILL START TO GROW EVEN FURTHER AGAINST THEM. THE APPEAL PROCESS SHOULD ALLOW THE U TO PLAY FOR THE ACC CHAMPIONSHIP THIS YEAR IF THE TEAM TAKES CARE OF BUSINESS(THEY WILL) AND NOW THAT THE FSU GAME IS ON NATIONAL TV IN PRIMETIME THIS WILL HELP RECRUITNG ALSO BECAUSE THE WORST WILL BE OVER. EXPECT THE NCAA TO ANNOUNCE ENOUGH TO APPEAL AND THE APPEAL TO TAKE TO FEB-MARCH AND LOOK FOR CANES TO PLAY AND WIN A BOWL GAME . GO CANES!! 13-1 TOP 5 FINISH !!

why do ncaa hate miami hurricanes so much to do this now

Schollie reductions, vacated wins, and...one more bowl ban. I hate to even type it, but that's what i feel.

The NCAA wants a say. They will not let us decide our own fate.

We will appeal though, and go to the ACC championship. We can't shut the seniors out who stuck with us the last 3 years.

Why are there always leaks from the ncaa and all of a sudden ....nothing? I dont think the ncaa really cares what anyone thinks of them. They do what they want when they want...see newton and manziel. Let just hope they say time served for miami then continue to pound the x coaches to look like further punishment on um for the media. Coaches will paytoo.....

Excited to hope that the NCAA finally has pulls out some balls and punishes a school enough that cheating is actually disincented.

You know what?! F'em all, Im a CANE for life anyway.

Worst case:

Bowl Ban: 4 years (including 2 years self-imposed)

Vacated wins from 2002 - 2008

Scholarship Reductions: 10 per year (2014 - 2016)

Television Ban: 2013 - 2014

Financial Penalty: All home gate receipts and bowl money earned between 2002 and 2008.

Probation: Indefinite, subject to review in 2023


Best Case:

Bowl Ban: None, time served

No financial penalty, no television ban.

Scholarship Reduction: 5 per year, three years.

Probation: 5 years

Five titles I endorse your post.
Well said.
Go 'Canes
