NCAAF  > Miami (FL) Hurricanes  > Shut down football!
August 29, 2011, 02:52 PM
I think the S.I. article (Letter to the AD) hit it right on the head. Miami needs to shut down football and clear out the....*&$%$#@ that has become this program. College football has become all about money. The thugs that get into college, not because of, or for, academic acheivement or pusuit are quite frankly dispicable. What about the average Joe who struggles just to get, pay and complete college and who will probably contribute more to society than any "student athlete". When you look at NCAA basketball and football those "student athletes" are a joke! Miami, Ohio State and any other program that cant play by the rules....shut them down!

I have to disagree. Yes, it's been terrible. Nothing worse this side of Clemson.

But that's a pretty drastic step, a shutdown. I say, whinny back the scholarships, make them pay. But a shutdown?

"Students" , not just "student athletes" are a joke. They should all be doing community service in Iraq.

As it turns out theirs (or TOSU's) crimes involving multiple players over multiple years, or with SOLID proof that HEAD COACHES had direct knowledge, lied, etc, and all the stuff everyone reading pro'lly knows about is not NEAR as bad as the one player and VERY suspect (hearsay from a convicted felon that was very conficting in it's particulars, like what year it happened) evidence that a running back coach had knowledge that USC was guilty? of.

We already know that at TOSU only sweatervest had ANYTHING to do with ANYTHING (is it lack of institutional control when the coach can do-say-lie about anything and noone ever suspects?).
Now we have Miami's "devastating" penalty http://tinyurl.com/3rywdat. Eight sit out games and must 'repay' benefeits? Yeah, right; watch for the Booster handshakes.

Does Miami deserve the death penalty? I don't wish that on any program; It's the NCAA THAT NEEDS TO GET A LETHAL INJECTION and if you can't see that I am sorry for your blindness, naivitee, or whatever condition it is that allows you to overlook what is a sham of a overseeing body.

Welcome to my side of the street...it is time to blow up the NCAA up or at least as it relates to the revenue producing sport programs!
