Miami Escapes Bowl Ban In Shapiro Scandal

Thanks to "unprecedented" self-imposed sanctions, the Miami Hurricanes escaped additional harsh penalties from the NCAA as the Nevin Shaprio scandal presumably drew to a close Tuesday. According to ESPN...

The Miami football program will not face any additional bowl bans, clearing the way for the No. 7 Hurricanes (6-0) to participate in the postseason this year. Miami will lose three scholarships annually over the next three years and the entire athletic program has been placed on three years' probation.

Additionally, the basketball program will lose three scholarships. Former Miami men's basketball coach Frank Haith, currently the head coach at Missouri, will be suspended five games. Jorge Fernandez (basketball) and Aubrey Hill (football) are among the three former assistant coaches that will receive two-year show-cause penalties.

Miami had already self-imposed bowl bans over the last two years, keeping the Hurricanes out of the ACC title game in 2012. Those self-imposed sanctions, along with complete cooperation during the prolonged NCAA investigation into widespread allegations, helped Miami avoid additional major penalties.

They did not "escape" a bowl ban. They self imposed a bowl ban 2 years in a row in 2011 and 2012. They did not get any further bowl ban form the NCAA.

I think the NCAA saw Shapiro for what he is, a bitter little man trying to burn as many folks as possible in order to get out of his prison sentence.

They are lucky they are under a different NCAA regime. The one from the late 80's to 2011 would have took
30 schollies
2 bowls
forfeiture of wins
all coaches present a show cause for a period of 5 years.

Nobody gets punished anymore like the Paul Dee, David Swank regime punished.

3 players over 3 years. This is no deterrent to cheating.
