Miami Finally Gets Ruling from NCAA, Loses 9 Scholarships and No Bowl Ban
The long process of waiting since 2010 is over for Miami. The story broke back in August of 2010 that booster Nevin Shapiro had basically went rogue. Miami is going to lose 9 scholarships over three seasons and have no further bowl ban according to sources.
BREAKING: According to @JoeRoseShow sources, Miami's football program will lose 3 scholarships per year over the next 3 years

Miami had sat out the last two postseasons including an ACC title game in hope that self imposing a ban would help them. I looks like it did. However I wouldn’t say that “it’s just nine scholarships.” You have to keep in mind the self imposed ban for a couple years and the damage done to the program will hanging in limbo.
I’m sure Canes fans are just happy this is over.
