08:54 AM ET 06.15 | What some originally thought might take three days to hash out didn't take that long after all. The University of Miami wrapped up its hearings with the NCAA Committee of Infractions on Friday afternoon after 16-1/2 hours of talks over two days -- less than it took the same committee to sort through the USC case in February 2010. The scene inside the well-guarded, second-floor conference room at the downtown Westin Hotel was described by one person as "an intense process that covered a lot of material" -- one that "didn't include any surprises, just all of the same stuff we've talked about for months and months and months." The next step? A decision on penalties from the eight-person panel headed by Conference USA commissioner Britton Banowsky will take at least six weeks. It will deliberate in private and weigh whether the findings made by the NCAA's enforcement committee or the arguments made over the past 48 hours by UM and others accused by former booster Nevin Shapiro of breaking NCAA rules are right. "I don't think there's any exact time frame that the committee has [to reach a decision], but we certainly hope we would be done prior to the beginning of the football season," said Atlantic Coast Conference commissioner John Swofford, who attended both days of hearings in support of Miami.

Actually 6 weeks is not all that bad, as USC waited 3/4 years for their penalties.

I have first hand knowledge that Miami and the NCAA reached a deal 10 years ago on cheating, and please don't share this with anyone else, Miami agreed to never win their conference or be relevant again in college football, and the NCAA would look the other way on all their offenses. They even made the dirtiest, cheatingest AD in the history of college athletics, Paul Dee, the chairman of the NCAA's committee on infractions to insure that Miami would never face sanctions as long as he's alive. Too bad for the Hurricanes his **** dropped dead like Chris Farley at an all you can inject **** house.
