Considering the NCAA missteps and their definition of corroborated evidence, I would be pissed off if Miami accepted any further penalties.
USC didn't accept their scholarship reductions
they still wear them, however
If that's the route that the NCAA wants to take, Miami will destroy them in court.
The success of the NCAA is based on trust, reputation, respect - Miami would obliterate what was left of that if they exposed them in court.
Thats why the NCAA doesnt want to go through that i mean it will lead to pandoras box of trouble that they can never get over so they wont give usa bowl ban trust but they will want to give us something i think many years of probation
Donna's statements have more or less said "we would win a legal battle against you, but it's in both of our best interests to settle this now"
You see how in the span of a day really they go from announcing they f***e up but will continue to investigate us an no timetable set to giving us the notice? That was a power move by Donna now maybe im reading too much into it butthe fact that they gave us the otice so fast afer what Donna said i have to think both sides will come together and agree on something soon
Re: the speed of the NOA - I think that was something that has been ready for at least a month, the internal investigation was just what held it off so they knew what they could keep in it. Once that was settled, they were able to send it.
Just my opinion, but when the school president says "We deeply regret any violations, but we have suffered enough." doesn't sound like they're going to accept any scholarship losses without fighting back with all they have (including a legal battle).
Going public and fighting back has made this a PR nightmare for the NCAA. They can settle now, and have this go away relatively quietly. Or they can have this be a very public, drawn out fight, exposing all of their flaws -- which would cause irreparable damage to their reputation.

Quit talking about court action every time we feel we're wronged. Yeah it bs but there isn't a legal remedy for everything. Aj green lost how many games because he sold a jersey. Cam didn't miss any and his dad shopped him around for 200k. The NCAA sets its own rules and they are given that power by its members, because it makes them both money. They don't have to follow precedent like in court, and they can and do make things up as it goes along. The only way the NCAA goes away is if the members revoke its power. But they won't because they make too much money off it.
