Reggie Bush was no longer in college, yet USC still took sanctions because someone not even affiliated with the university gave him and his family benefits. He also gave back the Heisman. Where were he lawsuits there?
As usual Macdaddy7930 has no clue what he's talking about, please stay away
How much would the players sue for? In a defamation case there must be an amount that was injured due to the defamation. The player will be required to show specific evidence on how the NCAA's slander cost them money. If they are successful the NCAA will have to pay the money. However, they will still have the sanctions in place.
The thing that everyone is having trouble understanding is that the NCAA isn't going to list out what it finds, but only its judgement/sentence. It will be something vague such as... "For impermissible benefits for up to some number of players". If Miami decides to challenge this by way of legal system, then you might as well expect these players to testify then. If this happens Miami better hope it is squeaky clean, which we already know is not the case.
Name one "factual" point where I am wrong? I will wait.
You must be a prophet... What lotto numbers should I play?
Technically, we should blame your administration. They stipulated to the process, thereby creating bad precedent for everyone else.
Had your administration had the sack, it would have self-imposed the death penalty or something similar prior to the NCAA having to move based on the Freeh report. Then, there wouldn't be bad precedent out there.
However, the last thing in the world that PSU fans have to complain about is the NCAA throwing out the rules and procedures since they agreed to allow the NCAA to break the rules. They brought it on themselves out of fear over a potential multi-year death penalty.

No, he's right. Legally, an unrebutted argument is taken as true. If you don't think so, try getting sued and then not showing up to the trial. Not likely to work out too well for you.
If there is only one story told to the finder of fact, then it's pretty easy to decide who is right.
Use a case Canes would understand, remember they are smarter than Juris Doctorates but they just haven't actually studies law.
It's like Miami got pulled over and one dude in the car said they were all drunk. The NCAA is wanting to administer a breathalyzer but they dont want to.....what happens?
They can't tell me I am wrong and make factual arguments. Just like former Cane players, when you ask for factual evidence all you see is a$$holes and elbows.
Well if you know the cop you get off just like the canes are going to do!
I'm just sad. That is all.
No I did not lose a sig bet, but I am really really really ridiculously good looking.
schadenfreude...it tastes like a bottle of ace, mixed with the sweetest Paul Dee breast milk
Nom nom nom nom nom
That's all you got
Don't make it so easy.
Must be comforting to know U'll never be on them again after this?
It's like getting chickenpox.
Don't lie. You enjoyed every second of saying "I told you so."
The NCAA is already going to court. Mcnair(former SC RB coach) vs ncaa. 1st hearing of Todd McNair vs. #NCAA was today in LA Superior Court. Judge blasted NCAA investigation of #USC
I don't think extortion means what a lot of you Canes think it does...
I didn't agree to anything.
And at the idea of "letting" the NCAA do anything. Like PSU had a choice?
To those talking about litigation against the NCAA - yeah, good luck with that.
