Peter Ariz
Will be posting them here throughout the day. Check OP for updates

Demetrius Jackson - "It's about time..."

Chad Thomas - "Not much to say, just happy that they'll be able to compete like the other colleges going to bowl games. The 3 scholarships won't hurt if everyone do their job and handle business in the program."

Nigel Bethel II- "It's good to be back on top" (From Tito Benach)

KC McDermott- "THE U IS BACK." (From Tito Benach)

Johhnie Dixon- "Great that nothing happened." (From Tito Benach)

2016 RB Mark Walton- "That's not bad that's great news for the Cane family, I love it."

Darrion Owens- "I'm excited to hear about the great news and can't wait for 'The U' to get back into the national championship again."

Brad Kaaya - "I'm Happy it's all over. ..Stressing over what might be is over... but i'm very excited Miami gets to play in bowl games because they look ready this year"

Travonte Valentine- "I'm very excited and plus this push for the 'Canes so be aware for a whole another level for the 'Canes and more commitments." (From Tito Benach)

Mike Smith - "I'm glad that Miami can play in a bowl game now."

Man...I wish we could get the reaction from those that wanted to come to UM lolol...

But we good those who chose to stay loyal are about to reap...YES SIR!!!!
 
Hey Pete wonder if we can get a reaction from muschamp given all the negative her spread. Wonder what the douce bag is going to use now to TRY and out recruit big al.

Jimbo too.
 
Pete, can you explain to these kids that we aren't even really losing that many ships?

This is an edited rehash of what I wrote in another thread, but its important and IMO the NCAA scholarship reductions are almost toothless, and for show to save a little face, after being managed by Donna Shalala.

Bear with me.

USC etc got reductions, but they were not only against the 85 cap but per class as well. 15/15/15. THAT is the thing that really hamstrings a program. You can't oversign to make up for attrition.

Staying at a slightly reduced cap against the 85 isn't a big deal. Its when you need a class of 28 kids and you can only sign 16 because you are limited to a specifically smaller class that year (like 15, or even 22). USC was limited to SPECIFIC class sizes of 15/15/15.

From what it appears, we do NOT have any class restrictions! Note this specific line:

3. Reduction in Athletics Awards. The total number of athletically related
financial aid awards in football shall be reduced by a combined total of nine
during the 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17 academic years. The institution shall
reduce the total number of athletics awards during each academic year. The
institution has the option of assigning the reductions during those years.

That bolded "option" at the end, signals to me that all we have to do is stay at 82. NO SPECIFIC CLASS REDUCTIONS as illustrated in the USC and OSU reports. We're good. Its a toothless restriction, and here is why:

If we were limited to 22/22/22 over three years, we'd end up playing down at 72 or so in the end, not 82. The attrition in that 22/22/22 case would be cumulative because you are continuously prevented from oversigning to make up for smaller classes and lost kids. It would have hurt and hamstrung us even after it was all over, as USC will be fucked for the next few years.

We, and may other schools play below the cap all the time. Its hard to get it perfect. If I am interpreting this correctly, these reductions are practically just for show. We got off.

For further example, USC is near 55 right now, even though they are allowed to be at 75. That's how crippling specific class size restrictions are. They needed a LOT more than 15 kids each year to get to 75, but were capped at 15 over and over. That's why I am explaining that 22/22/22 would have been far more crippling for us than just the 9 with "The institution has the option of assigning the reductions during those years." We would have ended up down at 72 in 3 years, not 82. Because we just wouldn't have been able to add enough kids.

Lets say that with ZERO reductions, normal operations, we would have ended up with rosters of 83, 84, and 83 over the next three years, just being careful not to mis-manage the roster. That's normal. A kid gets gets hurt too late to add a kid, etc. We're rarely at 85, if ever. We really are going to only lose 4 kids in my example where we would have played at 83, 84, and 83. Not 9. Because we were never going to magically be at 85/85/85 anyway. What it basically means is that we will lose maybe one kid at the bottom of the classes each year, a kid that we were on the fence about giving a ride to anyway, and a couple of walk ons that would have been awarded the final spot or two on the team as a thank you won't get it. Furthermore, we can take the 9 over three years whenever. We're at 75 now. If we only get to 80 next year, that's 5 already in the rear view mirror! We'd be able to play at 83, not 82 the next two years. We're hardly ever over 83 anyway. Those last spots end up with walk-ons.

Make sense?

WE. FUCKING SKATED. The NCAA gave us a toothless scholarship reduction.
 
I thought a hs coach on here said it was mainly Mushchamp not Jimbo
 
Not the bat signal but close enough, lol...

That's the way I have come to understand it. I will let him chime in but I thought Jimbo has historically been pretty respectful.....well whatever that means.
 
Nice Pete! You're as focused as Mike Miller with one shoe!

Jimbo and Al have a good amount of respect for each other. Al always says how much he likes the way Jimbo runs his program.

Muschamp is the douchebag.

"Hello, Texas, yeah, its your old buddy. Things just got all fu..ked up down here today. Is that job offer still open. Less money, sure I understand, Sure I'll take less. Keep this quiet for a while."
