No bowl ban for Miami football, but 5-game suspension for Frank Haith

    Football also loses 9 scholarships over 3 years :


    Haith will sit out 5 games at Missouri and a former Miami assistant given show-cause order over DeQuan Jones getting $10,000:


    The NCAA continues to be largely toothless ...

    Three scholarships a year for three years is negligible. If these are the punishments the NCAA is giving out these days, I fully expect every school to become like SMU in the early 1980s.

    Miklasz tried to make a huge deal out of the Miami investigation and Haith. That after he was left with egg on his face following Matt Painter's decision to stay at Purdue. Then Haith won a lot of games.

    Five games? Tap on a finger.

    The Haith situation WAS a big deal. This was at the time that the Oregon football program was in the crosshairs too, and a few others.

    Then somewhere along the line, TV money and the membership told the NCAA to shove its thumb up its ass. This isn't any kind of vindication of Haith. It's a concession to letting the whole freaky system go on unbothered.

    Yeah, they got off light.

    Honestly, the NCAA is scared to give anyone a bowl ban or TV ban now because there is just too much money associated with it and too many other parties get hurt in the process. I was shocked they gave Ohio State a bowl ban.

    Miami self-imposed a bowl ban last year that probably helped its cause.

    The entitlement culture of "The U" wins again. By botching the investigation, the NCAA equivalent of a warrantless search, the enforcement staff creates the threat of "the fruit of the poisonous tree" argument and has to drop the charges.

    Especially since it meant missing out on the ACC title game and a chance at a BCS payday. If they had just slipped into some third-tier bowl instead, I think they would have gotten a year bowl ban tacked on.

    Can't claim it as my own, but loved a comment on the Post-Dispatch's story, saying Mizzou may petition the NCAA to move the Haith suspension to mid-March, because the only way they have a prayer of winning an NCAA game during his reign is if he's not on the bench.
