Alabama, Ohio State, Notre Dame and Michigan are really having to alter their uniforms to get those recruits.
Michigan has used multiple alternates every year since signing on with Adidas. They had freaking numbers on their helmets last year.

Not the point. Like he said, there's no reason for Oregon to be good. Our uniforms are our identity. Ya, tradition works for Bama, SC, OSU, and Michigan, that's what they've built themselves off of. But only a few schools can rely on their "College Football Royalty" status to get recruits. Oregon's gone from a mid major to a top 5 program in under 20 years. It's been an insane climb and whether you like our uniforms or not, we finished #2 in the nation and we're going to compete for that Crystal Ball down in Pasadena next January.

I would rather play Bama, lose, and know rather than anal rape K-State and wonder what could have been.

I never said I didn't like Oregon's uniforms. I was responding to that Cowherd video you posted where he made it seem like the uniforms give Oregon a huge edge in recruiting over schools with classic uniforms.

Hopefully Bama/Oregon happens next year. Would be a great game for sure.

Eddie Williams, Tyler Hayes, and DJ Pettway are not only done with football at Alabama... but they are banned from campus. Glad they're out of here.

There is no announcement scheduled for tomorrow. The NOA could come tomorrow, it could come in a week, it could come in 6 months. NO ONE knows.

Miami will not sue (if they do) until after the penalties are given depending on what they are. First the Notice of Allegations has to be delivered. Then 90 days to review and respond. Then a hearing before the Committee on Infractions is scheduled, which is typically about 3 months after that. Then it usually takes 3 months to get the penalties. This will most likely take until 2014 unless the NCAA settles, which seems extremely unlikely considering all of Emmert's comments.

Miami has received the Notice of Allegations. It is extremely unlikely that it will be made public because it is a private institution thus not bound to release records as public schools do.

I'm shocked the NCAA was actually quick about something.

Miami statement (bold mine):

Quote:
STATEMENT FROM UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI PRESIDENT DONNA E. SHALALA ON NCAA NOTICE OF ALLEGATIONS

“The University of Miami deeply regrets and takes full responsibility for those NCAA violations that are based on fact and are corroborated by multiple individuals and/or documentation. We have already self-imposed a bowl ban for an unprecedented two-year period, forfeited the opportunity to participate in an ACC championship game, and withheld student-athletes from competition.

"Over the two and a half years since the University of Miami first contacted the NCAA enforcement staff about allegations of rules violations, the NCAA interviewed dozens of witnesses, including current and former Miami employees and student-athletes, and received thousands of requested documents and emails from the University. Yet despite our efforts to aid the investigation, the NCAA acknowledged on February 18, 2013 that it violated its own policies and procedures in an attempt to validate the allegations made by a convicted felon. Many of the allegations included in the Notice of Allegations remain unsubstantiated.

"Now that the Notice of Allegations has been issued, let me provide some context to the investigation itself:

> Many of the charges brought forth are based on the word of a man who made a fortune by lying. The NCAA enforcement staff acknowledged to the University that if Nevin Shapiro, a convicted con man, said something more than once, it considered the allegation “corroborated”—an argument which is both ludicrous and counter to legal practice.

> Most of the sensationalized media accounts of Shapiro’s claims are found nowhere in the Notice of Allegations. Despite their efforts over two and a half years, the NCAA enforcement staff could not find evidence of prostitution, expensive cars for players, expensive dinners paid for by boosters, player bounty payments, rampant alcohol and drug use, or the alleged hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash and gifts given to student-athletes, as reported in the media. The fabricated story played well—the facts did not.

> The NCAA enforcement staff failed, even after repeated requests, to interview many essential witnesses of great integrity who could have provided first-hand testimony, including, unbelievably, Paul Dee, who has since passed away, but who served as Miami Athletic Director during many of the years that violations were alleged to have occurred. How could a supposedly thorough and fair investigation not even include the Director of Athletics?

> Finally, we believe the NCAA was responsible for damaging leaks of unsubstantiated allegations over the course of the investigation.

Let me be clear again: for any rule violation—substantiated and proven with facts—that the University, its employees, or student-athletes committed, we have been and should be held accountable. We have worked hard to improve our compliance oversight, and we have already self-imposed harsh sanctions.

We deeply regret any violations, but we have suffered enough.

The University and counsel will work diligently to prepare our official response to the Notice of Allegations and submit it to the Committee on Infractions within the required 90-day time period.

We trust that the Committee on Infractions will provide the fairness and integrity missing during the investigative process.”

This is brilliant. Everyone should read this.

Quote:
The NCAA recently notified Texas A&M that, "a student-athlete can keep financial earnings as a result of a legal action."

. . .

Raising this interesting question, what's to keep a bunch of Texas A&M boosters from intentionally infringing on Manziel's trademark, being sued for doing so, and then settling out of court for hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal payments to Manziel?

Nothing.

Yeah, he's not so great. I guess I should clarify - the idea of the settlements is brilliant, not the article itself.

Is it wrong that I found that the only proven involvement of Calloway's to be "he received snacks" to be hilarious?

No. It's pretty funny.

So him getting snacks is what lead to suspension? That seems odd.
