In 2011, when Yahoo Sports bomb-shelled the University of Miami football team with allegations that a sugar daddy booster claimed to have rained down money, sex, and other illegal benefits on college players, it appeared the Hurricanes were done for.
Proving the NCAA is just as competent as the federal government, the investigation that first started as far back as 2010 was finally resolved today.
Rumors that the program was to be abolished died down as the investigation went on. The university showed remorse by voluntarily abstaining from post-season play the past two seasons.
In yet another instance of the NCAA talking a big game and getting nothing done, it was announced today that the football program will endure minor scholarship reductions, only losing three scholarships annually for the next three years.
Miami students lose more clothes than that during a single weekend.
No doubt fans are excited. The Canes are a top 10 team and are primed for a BCS bowl.
As a Cane fan, relieved that the NCAA didn’t over-penalize. Not a time to celebrate. A reminder to school to vet boosters like pols vet
