Statements from Shalala, James, chair of UM board of trustees

STATEMENTS RELEASED BY THE SCHOOL

The University of Miami received the NCAA Committee on Infractions report this morning, concluding a more than three-year process that included an investigation conducted by the NCAA and an appearance by senior University officials before the Committee on Infractions in June.

The University cooperated fully with investigators and took responsibility for its actions by proactively self-imposing severe penalties, including an unprecedented two-year bowl ban in football, withholding the football program from competing in the ACC Championship Game in 2012, and instituting substantial recruiting restrictions.

The University accepts the findings and the additional penalties as detailed in the Committee on Infractions report and will not appeal. The University is grateful to the Committee for a fair and thorough hearing.

As a proud member of the NCAA, the University of Miami remains committed to its fellow institutions and to the core principles that we—the members of the association—have always believed in.

The following are statements from the Chair of the Board of Trustees Leonard Abess, President Donna E. Shalala, and Director of Athletics Blake James:

> University of Miami Board of Trustees Chair Leonard Abess:

“The University of Miami moves forward today stronger and rededicated to the high ideals that have always sustained it. I am proud of our leadership and staff, who conducted themselves throughout this process with integrity, forthrightness, and in the spirit of full cooperation.”

> President Donna E. Shalala:

“The Committee on Infractions report closes a challenging chapter in the history of the University of Miami.

“I am grateful to our coaches, staff and student-athletes for their dedication to the University and to intercollegiate athletics. I also want to thank Atlantic Coast Conference Commissioner John Swofford for his steadfast support.

“Finally, I want to apologize to the Hurricane family, as we have asked for your patience, faith and support during a difficult time. Thank you for standing with us.”

> Director of Athletics Blake James:

“Our honest and committed efforts to address these allegations have made us stronger. We have already taken many proactive steps to ameliorate any concerns, and we will continue to improve in all areas. Now it is time we look ahead and work diligently to support our student-athletes.”

I hope that now any Hurricane fans who have been overly critical of President Shalala in the past will now realize what a blessing it is to have her leadership for this university. Today it truly is great to be a Miami Hurricane.

All together now...."IT'S GREAT TO BE A MIAMI HURRICANE, IT'S GREAT TO BE A MIAMI HURRICANE"... and lastly, with no disrespect intended..."FREE AT LAST, FREE AT LAST,THANK GOD ALMIGHTY, WE'RE FREE AT LAST"!!!

yeahhhhhh!!!!! Shalala victorious!!

Nevin Shapiro you little loser wannabe. Stick that in your loose, floppy sphincter!!!

AGAIN WE SHALL RISE!!!!!!!

U Proud. It's a blessing to had the leadership to guide us through these rough times. I look forward to a stronger, more dedicated U than mauve ever before. Great day and I'm happy to be able to share in this with my great U FAMILY! Together, Go Canes!

Typing on smartphones, not ideal. Lol. Doesn't change the fact that today is a great day at The U!

Yahooooooooooo!!!

6-0 baby

YES "IT'S GREAT TO BE A MIAMI HURRICANE ". SHOUTS OUT TO COACH GOLDEN FOR STICKING WITH THE PROGRAM AND BUILDING STEADY EVEN THROUGH DIFFICULT TIMES HATS OFF TO YOU COACH AND YOUR STAFF. NOW WITH WAKE FOREST COMING IN A VICTORY GETS THE TEAM TO 7-0 GOING ON NATIONAL PRIME TIME TV AGAINST FLA.ST WHICH WILL HELP RECRUITING REGARDLESS AND NOW NO MORE NCAA CLOUD HANGING OVER. "IT'S GREAT TO BE A MIAMI HURRICANE".

I wonder how Alex Collins, Sony Michel, and others who decided to sign elsewhere because their recruiters told them that the NCAA was going to hammer Miami feel now? How do these same recruiters, who have no doubt been repeating the same mantra this cycle, go back and look their potential recruits in the face? The negative recruiting is going to come back and haunt a lot of these schools. Those players who decided to stick with the U - Duke Johnson, Tracey Howard, Deon Bush, Stacey Coley, and others, deserve ultimate credit for keeping Miami afloat during this difficult time of uncertainty.

Agreed Sunny Dee, they have lost credibility, which is supposed to be what they have when talking to parents and future students.

They likely will do as the troll here does, change names and pretend they never said it.

Oh wait, they can't! They are so screwed!

Ms. Donna E. Shalala is a class act!! No if's, but's or may be's. hUh

And shame, shame on y'all Cane brUtes whom took liberty to DIZZ on President Shalala!!! And Ye know whom Ye be ( canespace/etoh minions, for instance. ).

I SEE-r a dominate victory by Miami on Saturday, y'all Cane loyalists!!

Matter of fact, Miami should cover the point spread and what not. But then again, Wake Forest could get a last minute cheap touchdown. Bloody Ouch.

D, I am just glad that we have given a last minute cheap touchdown to five teams that didn't matter, and stopped the one team that needed that late cheap touchdown.

Timing is everything.

Jim Gallo isn't very good at math either. Certainly not a business scholar by any means. He can't even count and doesn't understand the basic concept of hedging.

Look into the scholarship reductions a little closer Jimmy. Duh.

CANE NATION IS HIGH ON PRIDE...

And we gonna get high on something else after work!!!

NOW

IT's about focus on Wake Forest...

Boys, put your A-game on display. You've been freed.

The haters have been kicked in the mouth (someone please kick Lou "Elmer FUdd" Holtz in the his spit covered mouth please????)...Mark May you ND punk, suck it. Yahoo sports writing scumbag eat sh*t....

AFTER WAKE... THE FSU GAME JUST GOT HUGE AFTER THIS ANNOUNCEMENT....

OUR BOYS ARE PROBABLY DOING THEIR LOCKER ROOM DANCE THIS AFTERNOON...

CANE NATION RISING...

COLLEGE FOOTBALL-- STORMS COMING B*TCHES!!!!!

Thanks to Joe Z, SMD and Manny for covering this news with top notch ZEAL. KUDOS.

Gallo can we get an updated list please....with YOU and Calvin on it at this time!!!!

Go Canes!

Bleeding Orange, Green & White!

It's A Cane Thing...You Just Don't Understand!

6-0, cleared by the NCAA, and ranked higher than they have been in 8 years.

Good news all around.

He sicko! "You haven't seen the bottom yet"? Yes, we were here for the bottom, and we survived. You however are in freefall, and the decline is justice in the eyes of many.

Freeeeeeeeedooooom... I tthink amazing how many recruit probably went somewhere else because they were lied too. At least now we can pick up a few big names before NSD and focus on Wake Forest. Gooooooo Canes!!!!

Oh and I am happy the NCAA proved me wrong.

I am Shalala's interpretor, what she's aying boils down to this: F you, F you, You're cool, F you, I'm out.....headed to Sun Life for a noon kickoff

This is the worst day of my life.

The Canes don't get hammered.

They're a top ten team and undefeated.

That gator loss still stings.

To top it off, my incontinence is out of control today from the rectal prolapse caused by all the cawlks I've take up my a..

dont worry......golden/dnofrio have the team trending down.....

500 yards against a 1-5 team in last place.....

UM goes nowhere.....will not win acc or coastal for that matter.....probably will get beat by wake, lol

if unc almost beat them then wake must have a good chance.....

UMs opponent Total offense ranking:

UF #106
fau #84
nc #70
Gt #55
SS #beyond 123
sfla #121

lol.....any high school team can compete and win against those teams.....plus you have senior QB that is rattled.....a defense that gives up 500 yards against a 1-5 team.....

and cane green peas are celebrating, lol......don't worry peas...fsu will answer all the questions


http://collegespun.com/acc/miami-fl/usc-ad-pat-haden-predictably-unhappy-with-miamis-sanctions#

Haha. That's why you cooperate and penalize yourself

Jim Gallo please catch fire while fertilizing and lick a skunk A..
