### Though the NCAA hasn’t yet publicly released results of the investigation into its improper handling of a portion of the UM case, an NCAA source says UM has a good sense of what’s in the report, including confirmation of the NCAA agreeing to pay Nevin Shapiro’s attorney for her legal services.

UM and the NCAA spoke last week about two issues they’re still debating --- how the NCAA’s misconduct will affect the forthcoming notice of allegations and how the case will proceed from here.

UM continues to push for a settlement --- without having to appear before the infractions committee –-but NCAA president Mark Emmert knows he needs the blessing of two NCAA committees to take that highly unusual step, and whether that will happen is still very much up in the air.

One person in contact with the NCAA said a settlement cannot be ruled out, though several NCAA experts (such as John Infante) have said it's unlikely because there's no precedent for a settlement in a recruiting case. Remember, Emmert bypassed the usual protocol only in the Penn State case, which involved Jerry Sandusky's child molestation.

The 35 presidents on those two committees could balk at a UM settlement. But some believe they could be pursuaded if Emmert makes a convincing case why this matter should be resolved quickly. Emmert also could tell UM it must go before the infractions committee but instruct the infractions committee to expedite the process.

“Hopefully, we’ll get to a conclusion here very quickly,” UM coach Al Golden said.

And how long could this go on if the NCAA doesn’t settle?

For perspective, consider that after receiving its allegations in November 2011, Central Florida didn’t get its penalties for nearly nine months (July 31). UCF appealed its one-year football bowl ban in September, and is still awaiting a decision – 15 ½ months after getting its allegations.

That’s an absolute worst-case scenario UM could face if it appeals --- a saga that drags into a fourth year and past next February's football signing day. But Donna Shalala told Trustees recently that this NCAA mess cannot affect another football and basketball recruiting class.

By the way, UM has no current plans to sue the NCAA, though it has not been ruled out.
And UM expects to receive its notice of allegations very quickly after the NCAA publicly releases the report on the investigation into the NCAA's misconduct in the UM case.

To better fill up the stands for the TV camera next year, the student and band sections will be moved from the end zone to behind the opponents bench. TV cameras are normally pointed at the toward the opponents side.

To fill up the stands and help with recruiting long term (Assuming the NCAA allows it) I would add that for non sell-out games, we should be giving away or at least deeply discounting tickets to local high school, junior high and other football teams like PAL.

If we're not going to sell out, at least use it to our advantage. That's something the small town universities with their sell outs no matter who the opposing team is couldn't compete with.

This NCAA thing is like a case of the herpes! It never goes away.

Cane rock, I guess that answers the question of whether or not Miami would self impose a third consecutive bowl ban if the NCAA had not finished its investigation by the fall.

Only two posts in for the win has to be the record here, right? Seeing as how there's no topping WWiN on this one I'll just add, "FIRE JIM MORRIS," and take my leave until The Pimp is back in the news on the blog.

Lets see predictions for the Clemson game today.

I've got the "U" 76 - Clemson 65

CoCane

OGV,

I hit a cockroach with my "ram antler spray" formula on the side of my building. By the time I lit my cigarette. He grew red bull wings, flew down off the wall, rammed a stray cat into the side of the stairs, gave him a Dwayne Johnson "rock bottom" wrestling move & slammed it on the concrete. Then he threw up the "U" with his antenna's & took off flying after a pigeon. THIS SHYT IS AMAZING!!! Lol!

orange 'n green in the vein

/\/\/\/\

That's what she said, from what WWiN tells me. Going to need three cases of your product Coke (DEA alert!) if what Feldman says in his latest mailbag is true;

"From @Stanley_emile: Can UM have a dreamlike 2013 similar to Notre Dame 2012?

I expect Miami to be much-improved in 2013 from last year's team that qualified for a spot in the ACC title game, but also had been beaten by double-digits three times. The 'Canes were one of the youngest teams in the country. The best talent in the program was all freshmen and sophomores, so with an added year of seasoning, they figure to be a lot better, tougher, smarter. They should be very explosive on offense, but the biggest difference between the 2012 Notre Dame team and what Miami returns is the Fighting Irish had some legit difference-makers in the middle of their defense. I don't see that with UM right now. That's what's missing, and while Miami can be a Top 25 team without studs anchoring the D, the 'Canes aren't going to be competing for titles without them. All the great Miami teams had speed and difference-makers up the middle of the D. Miami has the speed now, but it's the other part of the equation that isn't there yet."

Working on Chimpanzee neo-cortex spray for D'No right now myself, hope to have something useable to carpet bomb him with at the spring game so he understands you send six or more on 3rd and more than 14 every time the down and distance presents itself. Oh, and a fake girlfriend for DZP to play for the memory of when she dies from unicorn horn ingestion poisoning after a meteor strike hits her personal rocket pack while she's flying to the top of mount Olympus also the Wednesday before they play UF.

TonyCane

OGV...hilarious! Perhaps you could put real-time subliminal messaging into the video replays at the stadium, and thereby dictate playcalling to DNo.

orange 'n green in the vein

I tried that the year before this last one TC, the result was this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wqffXDLY56A&feature=player_embedded

Unfortunately it only appears to work if you ignore the fact that Fisch basically ran his play calls in slow motion the entire year thus making the game shorter for the mutant from Philly by giving him less chances to do what he does and screw up every time. As of this year the technique was extinct on the 'trons and you saw what happened when the offense decided to actually try and set records instead of help the special needs cases on the coaching staff by putting the restriction plates on their engine.

We look terrible tonight. Settling for jumpshots instead of taking it inside. Also we're turning it over too much. We look nothing like the #3 team in the country so far...

CoCane

Another thing. Durand Scott picked up his 2nd foul early in the 1st half. Clemson was able to trap Larkin in the half court offense because of it. Scott's the only other player from Larkin that can create shots for other players. If Scott stays out of foul trouble in the 2nd half, take the ball to the rim more, hit the open perimeter shots & stop turning the ball over, we should pull away.

4STAR DE FROM GULLIVER PREP INKS WITH LOUISVILLE?? WE'RE WE EVEN A THOUGHT FOR HIM?

orange 'n green in the vein

As obvious as having your top scorer in foul trouble is going to gum up a basketball team's ability to score points, Scott also is the key piece to making all four of the other guys on the court tougher to defend from his drive and finish ability forcing defensive rotations that can be exploited.

Wow Jay Williams is cheering so much for Clemson I want him to take a very short ride on his motorcycle into the wall rather than listen to him. Vitale must have implored him to extract revenge for the Duke blowout tonight for them both.

The longer this game goes. The worse feeling I get about it

orange 'n green in the vein

UM's scoring depth will pull them through, the defensive effort is there tonight so they'll need to hit free throws down the stretch to pull it out and if they can get hot and not double off from the hot hand on the perimeter for Clemson still can run away with this late here.

CoCane

Commercial timeout.

I want to see more cutting to the rim. Clemson's doubling hard everytime Reggie or Kadji posts up.

Andrew Suarez and the Miami Hurricanes finished off visiting Rutgers in impressive fashion Sunday afternoon, blanking the visitors in a 7-0 shutout at Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field.

After strong showings from starters Chris Diaz and Javi Salas in the team’s Saturday doubleheader, Suarez guided the Hurricanes to an opening series sweep for the second consecutive season. The Miami, Fla., native pitched five shutout innings, scattering five hits and walking one. He struck out three batters, needing 79 pitches to get through his outing.

The Hurricanes jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the third inning, as RBI groundouts from Chantz Mack and David Thompson gave Miami the early advantage. The Canes would add another run in the fourth inning, as Grant Heyman became the fourth rookie on the weekend to record his first career hit and RBI.

A three-run seventh inning blew the game open for the home side, as an RBI single from Dale Carey and a two-RBI double from Brad Fieger gave Miami a decisive 7-0 advantage. Vince Kossak and Frank Gradinette were reliable in relief, with Kossak tossing three shutout innings and Grandinette closing out the ninth on only five pitches.

Iron Man INDEED!

CoCane

Last 2 games. 18 assists to 29 turnovers. If they play sloppy against Virginia tuesday night. They'll lose. They need to regroup & play better than the last 2 games. Tonight was VERY ugly. They played 3 other games like tonight. Against Florida Gulf Coast, Indiana St & Arizona. All losses

Not worried but a little concerned that they play like this a little more than occasionally.

Am I just tripping or does anyone else see what I'm talking about?

orange 'n green in the vein

Tough road environments Coke, two teams that excel at turning the game into a grind with aggressive screen and roll defense tactics, but yes you're not tripping and getting a better turnover differential against a much more dangerous on the offensive end Virginia team is going to be key along with getting a tough home environment with attendance, so in other words, cross your fingers.

orange 'n green in the vein

Just look at it this way half full, as bad a shooting night as the team had, they still played top flight defense and found a way to win both halves. Good teams find ways to win these type of road games and obviously this team is really good at doing just that.

Kadji will need a wheel barrow if he keeps hitting shots like he did today

Yeah, Clemson was hedging the hell out of Larkin on those Miami screens.

CoCane

Our shooters just didn't get hot to make them back off & loosen up their defense. So they kept hedging. I would've liked to see them attack the rim more to counter what they were doing...

But a win is a win...

JCane

Big win on as bad a game as the team has had this season with the whole starting five in. Turnovers, poor offensive execution and poor shooting, and still somehow finding a way to pull out the W in the last 2 minutes...gotta take it. However, like I've said a bunch of times so far, this team is definitely just getting by in many of the road games (ie close wins over BC, FSU, and Clemson). That being said, not all teams have (ie Duke last night at Maryland). However, learning to keep up a high level game after game after having played with so much energy for so many weeks is tough. Hopefully they can rebound on Tues. at home vs. a good UVa squad. This game should clarify whether there is a bit of a lapse in mo' vs. just a tough road trap game, but they can't afford to let down for even one game at this stage of the season, as amazing as this streak has been. Remember, this team hasn't lost since 2012.

BTW, anyone think DePaul wishes they'd not let Larkin go?

Hope all had a good weekend.

kenyon19ypr

I'm thoroughly disappointed in some of you. Thinking the game was over with over a minute and a half to play only down four points. HAVE SOME FAITH haha that game... Ugly, Ugly, Ugly. Virginia won't be any easier. Good thing it's at home.

Schweaty Balls

Series sweep of Rutgers, though I am sure some of you people are not happy still due to the fact Miami did not win each by at least 10 runs.

But from my perspective, it's a very solid start to the college baeeball year.

Lets try posting again. Tried 3-5 tines during the game, without luck. Good, ugly tough, character building win. On to the next one

Wait...what? Miami did not win all their games against Runtgers by 10 runs? The pitchers for UM gave up hits AND runs? Miami did not score at least 10 runs a game? They made some errors too?

Somehow that MUST be D'No's fault? LOL

No, Jim Morris' though and he should be let go immediately to cover up for the fact that he's got more championships than FSU and UF combined by infinity, or something.

^^^ OGV channeling his inner Six. ^^^

LMAO

JCane

Now for the pressure of moving up to #2, regardless of a pretty mediocre performance, but a win (which counts as a W just as much as the beatdowns on UNC and Duke earlier this season) is a win.

Agreed about the baseball team comments already made. 3 wins to open the season is nothing to EVER complain about. Hopefully they'll continue to improve as the season goes on. It is simply tougher to dominate year after year in college baseball as the U, Texas, USC, etc. did throughout the 80s and 90s.
