    It's in the past. Food, entertainment, and drinks? These are some bogus claims

    I've heard about that guy wining & dining players in the past ... don't believe anything came of it.

    I think the problem is going to be payola, moolah, & benjamins.

    Cash is the vilest of four-letter words to the NCAA .. gotta keep it clean so they can be millionaires on the backs of kids.

    The dang politicians get free tickets & sports junkets out the wazoo ... NCAA needs to put them on probation too!! Limit the number of politicians a city can have for 3 years!! lol

    Edit: Look at PFT ... alot of cash changing hands!! That's the issue!!

    It wont affect the Dolphins at all... Other than the fact that they will be the only football team in town for a while.

    If the Canes get the NCAA death penalty, they are effed for a LONG time...

    Look at what happened to SMU

    SMU returned to football in 1989 under coach Forrest Gregg, a former Hall of Fame lineman with the NFL's Green Bay Packers who had been a star at SMU in the early 1950s. He'd been hired in the spring of 1988, and inherited a team made up mostly of freshmen. Gregg's new charges were mostly undersized and underweight; he was taller and heavier than all but a few of the players on the 70-man squad. The new squad was particularly short on offensive linemen; Gregg had to make several prospective wide receivers bulk up and move to the line. By nearly all accounts, it would have been unthinkable for SMU to have allowed such a roster to play a competitive schedule in 1988.[24] Games were moved to Ownby Stadium, a tiny 23,000-seat facility where the Mustangs had played from 1926 to 1948, to symbolize administrators' intent to keep tighter control over the program. The Mustangs played there until 1994, when they moved to the Cotton Bowl, the scene of SMU's first glory era in the 1940s and 1950s. Since 2000, the Mustangs have played at Gerald J. Ford Stadium, which occupies Ownby Stadium's footprint.

    The scandal left the Mustang football program in ruin. Due to the loss of 55 scholarships over four years, they did not have a full complement of scholarships until 1992, and it was another year before they fielded a team entirely made up of players unaffected by the scandal. Since 1989, SMU has had a record of 66-169-3. The fallout from the "death penalty" was not limited to SMU. The Southwest Conference already had a dubious reputation due to the number of NCAA violations at its member schools (at one point, only three of its nine members weren't on probation), and the discovery of the scandal further tarnished the conference's image. The scandal was one of many factors behind the SWC's ultimate dissolution in 1996.

    The Hurricanes are not getting the death penalty.

    Lot of dudes who don't know anything about this situation are speaking as if an official ruling by the NCAA is already out.
