07:27 AM ET 10.22 | There is news, and there is noise -- and Al Golden can control only so much of the former. Before the news broke concerning the announcement of the impending NCAA sanctions, [Golden's] Miami Hurricanes began preparing for their next game against Wake Forest by trying to block out the outside noise of being ranked seventh in the BCS as well as the mega-matchup with BCS No. 2 Florida State a week from Saturday. "I wouldn't say [there has been] slippage, but it's a challenge," Golden said of blocking out the distractions. "There is cheese all around them. Don't take the cheese. Don't take the trap. You have a guy here or there that all of a sudden they're seduced by it. They want to hear about it. They want to talk about it. It has nothing to do with the outcome."

yep, the NCAA says that "there was a decade of lack of institutional control in Miami" but gives the biggest penalty to assts at Mizzou and LVille.

If I were OSU and USC, pizzed big time

As all the major writers are saying; cheat away AD's, there's very little to lose and a fortune to gain

Miami will get off easy. Early reports: "Miami football to lose nine scholarships over three years; no bowl ban from NCAA.

SG, we USC fans are "very" pissed, but that's water under the bridge. I think most of us USC fans have moved on. Nevertheless good comment and very true.
