No bowl ban for Miami Hurricanes
October, 22, 2013

Thanks to "unprecedented" self-imposed sanctions, the Miami Hurricanes escaped additional harsh penalties from the NCAA as the Nevin Shaprio scandal presumably drew to a close Tuesday.
The Miami football program will not face any additional bowl bans, clearing the way for the No. 7 Hurricanes (6-0) to participate in the postseason this year. Miami will lose three scholarships annually over the next three years and the entire athletic program has been placed on three years' probation.
Additionally, the basketball program will lose three scholarships. Former Miami men's basketball coach Frank Haith, currently the head coach at Missouri, will be suspended five games. Jorge Fernandez (basketball) and Aubrey Hill (football) are among the three former assistant coaches that will receive two-year show-cause penalties.
Miami had already self-imposed bowl bans over the last two years, keeping the Hurricanes out of the ACC title game in 2012. Those self-imposed sanctions, along with complete cooperation during the prolonged NCAA investigation into widespread allegations, helped Miami avoid additional major penalties.
Britton Banowsky, chair of the Committee on Infractions and commissioner of Conference USA, said it is hard to compare infractions cases against each other but what Miami did throughout the investigation stood out.
