No surprises there at all.

But then again, I still flinch at the ass-whippin' those thugs put on my Horns in the '91 Cotton Bowl.

He also put bounties on specific players, including Florida Gators quarterback Tim Tebow and a three-year standing bounty on Seminoles quarterback Chris Rix from 2002 to 2004, offering $5,000 to any player who knocked him out of a game.

“We pounded the (expletive) out of that kid,” Shapiro said of Rix. “Watch the tape of those games. You’ll see so many big hits on him. Guys were all going after that $5,000 in cash. [Jon] Vilma tried to kill him – just crushed him – a couple of times trying to get that $5,000. And he almost got it, too.”


Quote:
Shapiro rotated through multiple strip clubs with players on a regular basis – Solid Gold, The Cheetah, Pink Pony and Tootsies Cabaret. Shapiro often arrived to the clubs with thick wads of cash to spend on the dancers. Despite that, his additional credit card charges for just Solid Gold from mid 2005 to 2010 totaled $32,683.25.
Miami haters are going to have a holiday.

Quote:
In one instance, Shapiro described taking a player to the Pink Pony strip club and paying for a dancer to engage in sex with the athlete. In the ensuing weeks, Shapiro said the dancer called one of his security providers and informed him that the player had gotten her pregnant during the incident. Shapiro said he gave the dancer $500 to have an abortion performed, without notifying the player of the incident. “I was doing him a favor,” the booster said. “That idiot might have wanted to keep [the baby].”
Due to the sensitivity of the allegation, Yahoo! Sports has chosen not to name the player allegedly involved.
Holy....crap

It's sad because Miami could be the best program in the country like it used to be. Call me crazy, but I think that one day the Miami program will be back on top. The idea of Miami not being good again is sad to me and I refuse to accept it. Maybe I just miss the 80's back when the Canes were kicking butt, Miami Vice was a hit show, and Ronald Reagan was in the White House. I miss the good old days. Also, back then players could have fun. These days players get flagged for having too much fun.

True, but the NCAA has always been very uneven handing out the sanctions.

If this scandal is true, then Florida Atlantic will probably bear the brunt of it.

The NCAA cannot give either team the "death penalty" per NCAA rules.

So yeah, there is no way either team will get the ultimate punishment.

Like, NEVER? What if something so bad happen where a team was proven to be fixing games, killing puppies as sacrifice prior to games and voting democrat? That still couldnt get a life ban?

The way I read the rules, no. Although if a team was doing what you said, that would be some pretty serious probation. LOL.

Edit; looks like the NCAA could ban them. I must have misread the rule last time. "The NCAA still has the power to ban schools from competing in a sport without any preliminary sanctions in cases of particularly serious violations. However, the "repeat violator" rule gave the Infractions Committees of the various NCAA divisions specific instances where it either must bar a school from competing or explain why it didn't."

Either way, Miami is screwed for a long time if all of this is true.
