With all the recent rumors of decommitments, the potential sanctions and the mediocre season we just had I am really down on Miami football. But regardless, I still rocked a Miami hoodie around today. I don't know when we will be back, but we will be one day. It may happen under Golden or it may not. We WILL be back though.
It's the culture. SoCal kids didn't abandon USC. I don't think Ohio kids would have abandoned OSU if they got real sanctions. So Fla kids love to disrespect Miami on the way to committing elsewhere in normal years. Add in possible sanctions and you have a lot of kids leaving like disrespectful pricks.
That said, I like our class. Golden built a class with a solid foundation and planned to finish strong with the big recruits. The sanctions killed the final push to get some top recruits, but it's still a solid class.
It'll be months before we hear anything, there are a number of steps that still haven't been fulfilled yet including charges, time for appeals, etc, I don't know the exact process but it was explained to me in that manner. Will not happen before signing day
Golden is still pitchin the USC angle of this. If the sanctions come down, anyone that signed that year can be released from LOI without sitting the year out (i.e. how we got Sentrel). Should help some.
