08:28 AM ET 07.22 | One high-ranking Miami official told us Friday that school administrators were fed up with Ray-Ray Armstrong not being honest with them. Late Saturday night, his father Albert confirmed that Armstrong was bounced from the team largely because "he wasn't truthful" about a recent incident. Albert Armstrong told us that Ray Ray's girlfriend owns a public relations firm that works with professional athletes but is not affiliated with any sports agent. Albert said his son's girlfriend was staying at the Loews Hotel on Memorial Day weekend when Ray-Ray visited her and took a picture of some of the hotel rooms. Ray-Ray then distributed the pictures via Instagram, and UM became aware of it. When UM confronted him about it, he worried about his future and told the school he wasn't there with his girlfriend that night, his father said. "He told them the truth eventually, but it was a day late and dollar short," Albert Armstrong said. Last year, UM suspended him for a game for tweeting about a dinner at Prime 112 with that same girlfriend.

The U might not be playing in any bowl games the next few years anyway. I think they're going to be nailed pretty hard by the NCAA.

If any program in D1 in football that deserves to be abolished forever it is Miami U Hurricanes. Miami has disgraced college football with the low life antics of it's collection of street thugs wanna be rappers and hoods from the hood. Miami football is a shameful example of letting thugs attempting to get a degree while playing football. Flush the Miami program down the sewer forever and do D1 football and society a huge favor.

lllllllllllllllllooooooooooooolllllllllllllllllllllllllll

which is your favorite team?

Really? A kid can't go out to a nice dinner or to a nice hotel with his girlfriend without tripping over some BS NCAA red tape. The NCAA is the worst governing body in sports. FU, NCAA.
