Miami Will Lose Nine Scholarships, Avoid Bowl Ban
Nearly 19 weeks after Miami met with the NCAA Committee on Infractions and more than two years after booster Nevin Shapiro leveled money and stripper-filled allegations at the program, Miami knows its fate.
According to WQAM in Miami and ESPN's Joe Schad, the NCAA's punishment for Miami will amount to nine scholarship losses over three years (three per season), but the team will avoid any sort of postseason ban.
