**I guess Georgia gave Sony's brother a scholly too..$EC baby!!

The ride to Athens, Ga., is a bit too long and he said he plans on watching most of Sony’s games on TV. The good news, Jean said, is Sony won’t be alone. His older brother, Marken, will enroll at Georgia in January, Jean said. Marken spent the past two seasons at the University of Massachusetts where he caught 31 passes for 260 yards and a touchdown in 17 games at receiver.

“For years they shared the same clothes, same shoes, same room,” said Jean. “At Georgia, they’ll share a room again. That makes me happy.”

What will really make Jean happy is what could come a few years down the line — when Sony and Marken won’t have to share clothes, shoes or a room anymore.

Also..do you realize that South Carolina was allowed to simply do their own investigation? The NCAA just took their word for it...

UMike

Ok ok ok...This may not be strictly an SEC thing (see Green example below), but definitely a money thing and hypocritical thing. Let me break it down some..

1 - This was an NCAA suspension, NOT just an A&M suspension..from ESPN..

"The NCAA and A&M agreed on the one-half suspension because Manziel violated NCAA bylaw 12.5.2.1, an NCAA representative confirmed. The rule says student-athletes cannot permit their names or likenesses to be used for commercial purposes, including to advertise, recommend or promote sales of commercial products, or accept payment for the use of their names or likenesses."

2 - If there is "no proof" of wrong doing, then how can their be any punishment? His attorney said they only accepted the suspension so they could close the matter and move on. If there is punishment, there must of been proof.

3 - The NCAA based their entire investigation into Miami based of stories from a guy in prison for 20 years for lying and stealing. If he said something twice they considered in corroborated and true. At least 3 brokers admit to paying Johnny Fairball to sign autographs and there is photo and video proof he was in a hotel signing hundreds of autographs, but yet they cannnot "prove" it.

4 - Even after committing illegal acts during the investigation, admitting improper actions and firing numerous people, the NCAA would not make a deal with Miami yet the NCAA and A&M "reached an agreement" in less than a week.

5 - Dez Bryant lost his entire season because he lied about something that wasn't even a violation yet the NCAA believes Fairyball even after multiple brokers admitted they paid him, have video and photos etc.

6 - A.J. Green was suspended 4 games for selling HIS OWN bowl jersey. Even after he "repaid" the 1,000 to charity, they still wouldn't reduce his suspension.

7 - ESPN reported the NCAA was investigating Fairyball on August 4th, so in 24 days they were able to investigate and rule on it, Miami has waited 3 years.

8 - When the NCAA announced its OWN wrong doings they managed to have it investigated and ruled in 2 weeks.

9 - In 2011 8 Miami players served suspensions ranging from 1 game to 4 games AND paid restitution, yet the books weren't "closed" on the matter. From ESPN..

"Harris, Sean Spence, Travis Benjamin, Marcus Forston and Adewale Ojomo -- all of whom were likely starters -- must sit out one game and make restitution for accepting benefits after enrolling at the school. Four other players must repay small amounts, all under $100, but will not miss any games."

Full game suspensions for less than $100, yet Fairball made thousands (again there must be SOME proof, or no suspension would of came)

10 - This is a Miami thing. The NCAA has hated and always will hate Miami. When Miami wins ESPN and the media love us again, but the NCAA will forever hate us. From how we were in the 80's and 90's to coming back from the brink of death to build the best team ever, to embarrassing the NCAA and turning the media in them etc etc etc. That is why this has taken so long. They spoke with the same people over and over and over trying to get proof. They found "no proof" in a few weeks with the Fairball case, and this is with brokers admitting so. They didn't find anything, so they left it alone. With Miami if they dont find something, they try harder, or use illegal means to try and find evidence. I said it a week or so ago, don't be surprised if the penalties come down before the Florida game. And it won't be no "time served' neither. This is the NCAA's last chance to f&*k us and they are going too.

Wrong sport and the wrong conference I guess.

Compromise the integrity of amateurism in collegiate athletics for the sake of revenue. Sounds like the @ncaa I know.

Scan down the University of Miami’s latest depth chart and sophomore linebacker Tyriq McCord can’t be found anywhere.

True freshman Al-Quadin Muhammad has his name on the chart but way down the list at defensive end, behind seniors Shayon Green and David Gilbert.

Truth is, McCord (6-3, 236) and Muhammad (6-3, 233) might be UM’s best-kept secrets on defense.

They are a pair of cat-quick former high school All-American sack-masters whom coaches are counting on to help inject venom into a Hurricanes’ pass rush that didn’t have much bite at all last season.

UM, which produced a school-record-low 13 sacks last season (the Canes had 24 in 2011), will bring the dynamic duo in on third downs and obvious passing situations at defensive end to chase down opposing quarterbacks.

McCord, who finished second on the team with 3 1/2 sacks last season, said with Muhammad playing opposite him now the two can “cause a lot of havoc this year.

“It’s like seeing an alter ego,” McCord said of Muhammad, who starred at New Jersey national powerhouse Don Bosco Prep and was one of coach Al Golden’s most-prized recruits in February’s signing class.

“I’m feeding off him, and he’s feeding off me a little bit. I believe it’s going to be a big year.”

Muhammad is one of five true freshmen listed on the Canes’ depth chart heading into Friday’s opener against FAU (receiver Stacy Coley, fullback Walter Tucker, cornerback Artie Burns and linebacker Alex Figueroa are the others).

Although he hasn’t played a down in college football, he made quite an impression earlier this month on media day with some bold words.

Not only did he say he would like to break Daniel Stubbs’ career school record for sacks (39 1/2), but he also said: “Some of the things I do and moves I make you’ve probably never seen a guy make before. You probably don’t even see some of them in the NFL.”

The Herb knows this, the NCAA sure is swift when it wants to be or should I say they did a hurry up and sweep it under the rug investigation, just to get that punk eligible. I know he didn't visit 3 states on his own dine and not get comped.

The Dude

Okay, so we can have our guys sign things for money as long as there isn't a paper trail if we suspend them for the first half of a game against a team that can't compete with our backups? So why not just let all of our starters do this and schedule the worst team possible every year to start the season? That way we can pay for top notch players..

MAKES U WONDER WITH EVERY PASSING DAY IS THE NCAA PREPARING FOR WAR WITH UM WITH THE BS THEY ARE GOING TO GIVE US?

herbieibis

Wow, Look how quick the NCAA took to rule on Manzel. The little liar gets to sit out one half of a cream-puff game against Rice-aroni and we're still waiting 3 years later. I guess this was the reason why we are still waiting, they had to get Johnny Football cleared first.
