We can deal with the NOA tomorrow.

Hassy..Movin on UP!

Hassan you know some people will actually believe that about Haith getting the text. It's funny anyway.

laquinton

soo we got the letter right

HawaiiCane

agree with nemo2002... let's focus on the #2 team in the nation! Let's Go 'Canes!!!

The BS calls that go against the best ACC team in their own building this year just make me shake my head.

CoCane

We've got to stop letting teams dictate our tempo.

Miami 28 Virginia 28

The Pimp pumping his arms up to get the crowd in it! Love it!!

JamaiCane

The crowd is giving some great energy right now.

CoCane

OGV,

We don't deserve the calls. We're not aggressive right now & has lost our intensity & will to push the tempo

orange 'n green in the vein

Only took 28 minutes for the crowd to figure out that "Let's go 'Canes," is the go to offensive chant. Baby steps.

CaneRock

Kadji and Johnson need to keep workin' that 2 man game.

Ohio_Cane

RION BROWN!!

Inside-Out BAYBAAAAY!

Coke, the guy fell down and they whistled Gamble for a push when he was standing with both hands in the air. That's BS especially so in the home teams court going against them like it did.

Sy-Cane

aside from that last 8-0 run, we look flat. Amazing how we're pulling this out.

JamaiCane

The refs must be Duke fans

JUST SAW TIM REYNOLDS HINTING AT MAJOR PENALTYS COMING FOR MIAMI. ANYBODY ELSE SEE THIS???

Hassan

NOA has the LOIC

CoCane

I agree about that call OGV but I'ts more than that. They're doubling the screen & the post but nobody's cutting to the basket. They're just standing. Plus, their lack of intensity...

@ByTimReynolds: AP Source: Notice of allegations against Miami includes the dreaded "lack of institutional control" charge.

@ByTimReynolds: Correct. RT @CourtneyNBC6: If I'm not mistaken, it's a sweeping charge. Encompasses multiple infractions, hinting at major penalty potential

@BFeldmanCBS: The NCAA has called some of coaches from Shapiro scandal & notified them of charges, which are same as detailed last month, per source.

Sinistercane

Know one will EVER cooperate with the NCAA again.

Miami's statement on the NOA is out.

Poor FT shooting tonight means ripe for the upset.

To catch excerpts of Donna's response. I expect a call to the DoJ for them to investigate the NCAA.

Missed free throws killing us again!

STATEMENT FROM UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI PRESIDENT DONNA E. SHALALA ON NCAA NOTICE OF ALLEGATIONS

“The University of Miami deeply regrets and takes full responsibility for those NCAA violations that are based on fact and are corroborated by multiple individuals and/or documentation. We have already self-imposed a bowl ban for an unprecedented two-year period, forfeited the opportunity to participate in an ACC championship game, and withheld student-athletes from competition.

"Over the two and a half years since the University of Miami first contacted the NCAA enforcement staff about allegations of rules violations, the NCAA interviewed dozens of witnesses, including current and former Miami employees and student-athletes, and received thousands of requested documents and emails from the University. Yet despite our efforts to aid the investigation, the NCAA acknowledged on February 18, 2013 that it violated its own policies and procedures in an attempt to validate the allegations made by a convicted felon. Many of the allegations included in the Notice of Allegations remain unsubstantiated.

"Now that the Notice of Allegations has been issued, let me provide some context to the investigation itself:

> Many of the charges brought forth are based on the word of a man who made a fortune by lying. The NCAA enforcement staff acknowledged to the University that if Nevin Shapiro, a convicted con man, said something more than once, it considered the allegation “corroborated”—an argument which is both ludicrous and counter to legal practice.

> Most of the sensationalized media accounts of Shapiro’s claims are found nowhere in the Notice of Allegations. Despite their efforts over two and a half years, the NCAA enforcement staff could not find evidence of prostitution, expensive cars for players, expensive dinners paid for by boosters, player bounty payments, rampant alcohol and drug use, or the alleged hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash and gifts given to student-athletes, as reported in the media. The fabricated story played well—the facts did not.

> The NCAA enforcement staff failed, even after repeated requests, to interview many essential witnesses of great integrity who could have provided first-hand testimony, including, unbelievably, Paul Dee, who has since passed away, but who served as Miami Athletic Director during many of the years that violations were alleged to have occurred. How could a supposedly thorough and fair investigation not even include the Director of Athletics?

> Finally, we believe the NCAA was responsible for damaging leaks of unsubstantiated allegations over the course of the investigation.

Let me be clear again: for any rule violation—substantiated and proven with facts—that the University, its employees, or student-athletes committed, we have been and should be held accountable. We have worked hard to improve our compliance oversight, and we have already self-imposed harsh sanctions.

We deeply regret any violations, but we have suffered enough.

The University and counsel will work diligently to prepare our official response to the Notice of Allegations and submit it to the Committee on Infractions within the required 90-day time period.

We trust that the Committee on Infractions will provide the fairness and integrity missing during the investigative process.”

Larkin has become way too complacent on the offensive end of the floor. He rarely looks for his shot anymore and spends most of his time dribbling in circles. The canes go as he goes. Larkin scores, Miami wins easy. Larkin defers the entire game, they struggle -- mightily.

The Dude

Lucky shot.

The Dude

CANES WIN!!!

The Dude

Defense wins.

BEERicane

Turn it around Larkin. You have to show up in the first 35 min of the game, buddy!

So smooth, no stress at all when you spring inbound pass lanes like that.

This just in: The Inter-Collegiate Athletic Association has approved financing for the reconstruction of one of college football's most historic venues; the Orange Bowl in Miami.

"lack of institutional control" Really time to go to the court room

Fish

CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that the NCAA is accusing Miami of a "lack of institutional control" in the long-awaited notice of allegations against the Hurricanes.

The letter was delivered to Miami on Tuesday, said the person, who spoke on conditieon of anonymity because neither the NCAA nor the Hurricanes had authorized any public comment.

The institutional-control charge is typically one of the most severe the NCAA can bring in matters like this. What?

TonyCane

I wonder if back channel communications have taken place between the NCAA and Miami in which part of the price for an early settlement is one last post-season ban...this time for the basketball team.

Ohio_Cane

Tony, no chance

Canesfan_1

I don't see any way we agree to that. No way at all.

Canesfan_1

Talking about Tony post. No way we agree to that.

j.w.

I'm up for a fight. Anyone else ready? I'll even let emmert take the first shot before I knock that fat sob on his ass.

JCane

The O has been out of synch bigtime, and they don't have much time to get things back on track. Gotta hope that Larranage gets things worked out before ACC tnmt. play starts, or for that matter, before the game at Duke when there is potential for a blowout of similar proportions in the opposite direction. It's almost like this team needs to lose a game already to get the monkey off their back. Gotta hit FTs, as Mich. State knows too well given how many they blew in the last five min. of their game at home vs. a polished and cool IU team. Larkin has to start looking for and making his shots again. His passing is nice, his drives are quick and the ability to make all of this happen more commonly is way reduced if he can't make his jumpers. The first half they decided to get too fancy with the style of O and types of passes, and they paid. Just because they're ranked #2 doesn't mean they've earned the right to be handed Ws.

All of those negative sounding comments aside, they've got a ton of talent and a lot of potential to make a deep run. They have to show the type of cool to make other teams play their game, unlike happened in the last two games, as well as have Larkin at his best and the team hitting FTs. Looking forward to the next few weeks.

As for the NOA, this is getting to be way more than a soap opera. Just let me know when it's resolved and how.....

Nice signing today, assuming he qualifies.

Canesfan_1

Im up for it. I'll mess that sob up. Eating from a straw for six months.

JCane

BTW, if anyone thinks Pres. Shalala didn't expect this type of notice over the last few days, they are foolish. There clearly was a preemptive strike by the letter regarding the NCAA investigation yesterday

TonyCane

I would hope not. Although I could see some temptation by the athletic department if the offer was time served, no scholarship reductions...if you take the basketball ban.

Are we just making crap up now? They're not settling and there isn't a back room deal. The NCAA hates us to the point that they are now falling on every sword in their weapons room to bury us.

This shyt just got real personal and real legal.

Go 'canes!

Hassan

Gators lose lol

It's Great to be a Miami Hurricane

BEERicane

And the canes need to start converting beyond the Arc. 3 point shooting has been atrocious. Sign of a good team though to overcome no 3ball and poor FT shooting.

Someone get Donna a USWAG hat quick.

I don't want them to. I want Shalala to employ every weapon in her arsenal. Pull every string, from the White House on down.

JCane

Absolutely they need to start hitting 3 pt. shots. The key is that the team got a load of wins, finished killing off UNC, moved up the rankings fast, and now seem to be playing offense in fear...or other teams appear to suddenly know how to defense the O the U was running, but it doesn't really look like that's the primary explanation.

As for Pres. Shalala's approach here, just read the last line of her statement, which was very carefully worded by simply choosing the word "trust" rather than "hope."

There is a veiled message/threat to the NCAA with this wording. This clearly was reviewed carefully by the legal staff.

CalGary cane

So, can we just do what the NCAA did and fire the coaches responsible? OK, done, let's move on.

j.w.

Of course they did, J- last night's statement was more about Shalala realizing she had nothing to lose by blowing off steam, getting the alumni fired up, and giving the media their next great story. We're on the battle field now, later than I would have liked, and the news is likely to get worse as details leak out, but at least we're taking on these sombitches with both barrels blazing from every window. The NCAA wants to fight tot he death? I say bring it on. Justice Dept., courts of law, public opinion, I really don't care what the forum is, just bring it. And rescind any campus bans given to any former players- they were right not to cooperate with this witch hunt, encouraging them to cooperate did us no favors.

orange 'n green in the vein

I believe the magic number for the basketball team to clench the ACC title now stands at two. I'm just saying . . .

I know one of you guys are good enough with photoshop to make Mt. Canesmore happen. Schnell, Jimmy, Irvin and Ray Ray. Bernie not on the Mt. Maybe he can get a memorial?

I was thinking the same thing. I would do it but unfortunately I only know how to type and surf the net, lol.

NY Trooper

Emmert is a hypocrite. The U has a lack of institutional control but he doesn't? If I completed investigations like Emmert and his enforcement team my findings would all be thrown out and I would be reprimanded.

3 OGV; 5 left, 3 game lead- we need a combo of 3 wins/Duke losses to clinch. 2 to tie, thoguh.

Yeah, if they're going forward after what's already come to light, they know that the criticism will be inTENSE. And they don't care. They're coming for Miami hard no matter what happens.

Which means there's going to be a lawsuit. At least one lawsuit.

djl

i think they should really do it. no time better than with canes a top ranked basketball team. leave the ncaa.
