NCAA says roughly 20% of information had to be taken out as part of this review of Miami investigation.
Is 20% gonna be enough to let Miami get off pretty easy? Will their lawyers be able to get most of the NCAA investigation thrown out and their (Miami) already self imposed sanctions be enough to end it of is Miami effed?
Still think they get some scholarship reductions but for the most part I think it's over.
Hope so. I would pull for cancer over the NCAA. I hope they end up having to pay restitution to Miami.

Yup few scholarship loses and 3-5 yr probation.
The NCAA needs to be shut down. Seriously. Two years ago we all thought they'd hit rock bottom and then these last three months have taken it so much further.
Who's gonna shut them down, they have no bosses.
A fire rises
lolz the NCAA used a burner phone... WTF
The NCAAshe received at least $20,000 to pass along information obtained through bankruptcy depositions that had nothing to do with the case.
What needs to happen is the big four conferences forming and then they secede from the NCAA. Hire a smallish staff with an elite commissioner and then they could pay athletes and all that jazz.
Oh that's rich. What a fine CULTURE you have there Emmert. I love this. I am so happy. If the NCAA gives Miami anything more than a few scholarship reduction and "time served" for postseason ban, I hope Miami sues the crap out of them.
This is fantastic.
I agree. And when a school breaks rules, disqualify the student/coach breaking the rules and just fine the institution (with escalating fines for repeat offenders). It's such a simple concept and it doesn't hurt the fans or other players who had nothing to do with the transgressions.
I agree with this, I hope it happens soon
Emmert should step down.
Give the athletes their scholarship and then 750 bucks a month, schools cant afford more then that despite how everyone thinks there are wads of cash stashed everywhere. That's 175 dollars a week for gas, groceries, etc. More than most had.
If a coach or player cheats he should be banned from the new league for a year, then two years, then four.
We all know this. He will hang on as long as possible though. I think it would take the member schools asking for him to step down before he would do it. The guy is a turd.
That might be a little tough... maybe 50 per week. 175 per week would put the cost of those stipends in the millions because of title IX. It's fine for schools making serious cash, but the majority of schools are either losing money or are barely breaking even. And that is just BCS conference schools. I would imagine the mid-majors would not be included in the "new NCAA".
A major reason to leave the NCAA would be to say football is above the other sports, screw them. Football will still keep them afloat but football players get stipends, they dont. That's life.
You cannot do that. It is a Title IX violation. The Feds trump everything. If you pay a scholarship football player, you need to pay a scholarship field hockey player.
No doubt, just think there's a way around it. If that holds firm then they will never get a nickel more than their scholly.
Most idiotic comment I have seen in a while.
There is no way around Title IX, unless you want to move all the football stadiums and teams to Canada perhaps.
Also my old girlfriend was a swimmer for a DI school and gets a allowance? It isn't much but I remember her telling me she doesn't have to work because it covers gas and food.

The closest thing they can come to it is to only award 85 women the stipends (to equal the football players). In that case, you would still have 170 receipients which would still cost a school $1.5 million. And you will likely get a ton of crap from basketball players for not including them.
Athletes can still apply for Pell grants, which give a max of 5.5k per year. You need to have significant financial need in order to qualify.
By the time the state of PA is done with them there may not be much left.
Golden is better then Jimbo... I feared it was true. He is going to hoist a crystal ball there - fsufsu
Please, Nole of 16, do not ever cut anyone else down. You've been the clumsiest addition to a Nole sight in years.
