UM and The NCAA, Resolution at Long Last

With convicted Ponzi-schemer Nevin Shapiro resting comfortably in federal prison and after he threatened and boasted that he would bring down the University of Miami, the NCAA will publish and announce its sanctions and findings of fact on Tuesday morning at 10 am. This will end almost three years of drama and heartache that saw the Hurricanes turn down two bowl appearances, an ACC Championship Game appearance, and many scholarships.

With the Canes “staring into the abyss” of NCAA sanctions I thought I’d take a moment to share my journey over the years as an alum and long time Canes fan and member of the #CanesFam to remind many that we've been through this before. We will finally have resolution after 798 days or 114 weeks since Yahoo dropped the Nevin bomb on Coral Gables with the NCAA completely botching its investigation using quasi-illegal tactics along the way. Tomorrow at 10am brings closure and relief and will allow our University to heal.
