Miami (That Miami)
Miami and North Carolina should both send thank you cards to Penn State. These are two of the worst NCAA scandals in recent history but both are completely overshadowed by the tragedy at Penn State.
By themselves, the new Miami violations so far don't seem all that major, but when you are coming off the Nevin Shapiro mess awaiting a NCAA COI hearing, this is not the way you want to start off a new regime.
Miami's Rivals site is reporting Randy Shannon and staff will be fired tomorrow. Generally these Rivals sites are pretty good about being on this kind of stuff.
I wasn't going to post this here but this gives me a bit more confidence, so take a rumor FWIW: Talked to a well-connected alum today who was extremely confident not only that Jim Harbaugh would be hired as the next coach of Michigan, but that Rich Rodriguez would be taking his talents to South Beach. I'm still not overwhelmingly confident, but this is certainly an interesting development. We'll see how this thing plays out I suppose.
