In my opinion I think that the Miami players got off easy and I would’ve liked to have seen stiffer penalties levied by the NCAA for the Miami Hurricane Football program. This basically a slap on the wrist. I guess after the OSU scandal we can’t expect too much from the NCAA.
Eight Miami (Fla.) football student-athletes must miss competition and repay benefits as a condition of becoming eligible to play again, according to a decision Tuesday by the NCAA student-athlete reinstatement staff. The student-athletes received varying levels of recruiting inducements and extra benefits from university booster Nevin Shapiro and athletics personnel, according to the facts of the case.
Reinstatement decisions are independent of the NCAA enforcement process and typically are made once the facts of the student-athlete’s involvement are determined. This is typically well in advance of infractions decisions. The enforcement investigation into the university’s football program is ongoing.
