A rouge jock sniffing Ponzi scam artist that didn't go to Miami is going to crash the program. Has to be every AD's nightmare.

This is why its a real good idea for alumni to keep clear of the student athletes when they are in college.

Seems like a case tailor made for the death penalty. And richly deserved, IMO. The worst thing I've ever seen in college sports came in a game between Miami and Colorado (McCartney era) in Boulder. Two programs that had deliberately emphasized "thug" culture. On national TV just as the first half ended, they engaged in a bench clearing, helmet swinging brawl. I mean, really ugly. But then, both of those programs WERE really ugly. I will never forget or forgive Miami showing up at the Fiesta Bowl (?) wearing their jungle fatigues. How could a university permit that? The Penn State kids were wearing blazers and ties. Tough call as to which team I wanted to win.

This dude in Miami was a convicted felon. How careful do you have to be to keep a guy like that away from your athletes?

All of this makes my Buckeyes' win over those thugs for the national championship in 2002 even sweeter!

Well, the Buckeyes' cachet has certainly diminished just a bit since then. :o

Agreed. Perhaps we will look back at that game as the convicts v. convicts :p:D:D

Still, is anyone surprised that Miami has apparantly plumbed new depths when it comes to corruption? This is a program which has been embarrassing college football for decades. And it's time for the NC$$ to turn out the lights and lock the doors. But the top of the rate card for what can go wrong in college athletics occurred at Baylor. Remember? One basketball player whacked a teammate by putting one (or was it two?) 9MM rounds behind his ear. Then a corrupt coach, facing a drug investigation, tried to blame the murdered player. Hey, he was already dead, what difference does it make? The previous number one was the drive by shooting by football players on campus at Oklahoma. But when you can actually take somebody out, well, you win the kewpie doll.

So I had to check and make sure I had the roman numerals right. 31 threads, wow, can you believe it? I think I started posted around XIV!!! I wonder what you giuys were talking about in Thread # I ??? Who were the big name players then, had we won a Natl championship yet? Any "All Things" historians out there?

Swami would have been the best bet to answer your question.

Yeah, but if you need someone to make your "free-tattoo for memorabilia scandal" look like a pittance, then you can always count on Miami for a REAL scandal.

True dat. Paraphrasing the old DuPont slogan: "Better things for better scandals through corruption."

I've been thinking about the definitive example of SMU corruption. Eric Dickerson had signed a conference LOI with A&M. But on natonal signing day he showed up in Dallas driving a brand new, fully tricked out Trans Am. The cover story was that his mom was making the payments. Her monthly stipend from welfare, food stamps and other sources came to less than 500 bucks. The monthly payments were around 450 bucks. This was a very frugal lady.

At the height of the SWC cheating scandals, a Houston TV station inverviewed a young, weathy booster for TCU. He allowed as how the going rate for a top flight running back was around 30K. Texas Christian University!

Another 2013 recruit for DU. He is another kid from Cali where DU has had tremendous success with Gauthier, Rakhshani and Bennett.

I've got a lake... I've got several... You can drive to one, crawl, if need be, to another, and walk to the rest of them if you want to walk anywhere from 0.8 miles to about 10 miles. None of them are "down" from Denver or Loveland - all are about twice as high in elevation. Very nice fish in all of them...

DU's 2010 Recruiting Class was ranked #1 by INCH.

F Jason Zucker
D David Makowski
F Nick Shore
F Beau Bennett
F Dan Olszewski
F Jarrod Mermis
G Sam Brittain
F Justin Jones

I don't think there is any doubt that the incoming 2011 Recruiting Class will be ranked #1 now that both Miami & UND lost their top recruit to major juniors.

D Scott Mayfield
F Zac Larraza
D Joey LaLeggia
F Larkin Jacobson
D-F Wade Bennett
F Matt Tabrum
D Josiah Didier
F Daniel Doremus
G Juho Olkinuora
F Ty Loney

Both 2012 & 2013 look awesome so far.
