He doesn't care about the U. He's on record saying he thinks they should get the death penalty.
Never, ever gonna happen. It will never be that severe. The NFL is in the business of making money, not making the NCAA look good. You're not going to see anything close to a 5 year penalty. 1 year is probably the top. You think if Andrew Luck got caught taking money from a booster tomorrow, that the NFL would ever consider banning him from competition for 3 years? Not a chance. Never in a million years.
Anything the NFL does in upholding NCAA penalties is strictly done in the name of good PR. They don't really care about the what college kids do.
Do I think they will get it? Probably not, do I think they should? Absolutly.
They have always been a school of thugs
Is it coincidence that 30 for 30 The U is on espn right now?
Ray Lewis. Michael Irvin. Warren Sapp. Randy Moss.
Character means zero if they can play.
Reggie Bush isn't really a great example to make your case, either. The NCAA didn't rule anything about him until approximately 4 years after he was drafted. He was thought of as a sure thing back in 2006. No one knew how the NCAA investigation was going to turn out. The man walked into the NFL as a star. The league was hyping him from the start. The average length of an NFL career is about 3 years. Of course he still would have been drafted in the top 5. Very few teams would have been frightened off by the possibility of him incurring a penalty 4 years later.
On another note, does Bush really have a problem with his work ethic? I think he's a bust, but I've never heard his work ethic called into question, quite the opposite in fact.
I voted yes, but it's not going to happen. The "U" is on the east coast and for some reason schools there always get the better end of the stick.
IMO I don't think they should - but I do think that they will. The fact that the media is suggesting that Miami receive the death penalty makes me wonder if the NCAA has to pull the trigger. This is about as severe as it can get and in the wake of offenses at USC, Oregon, Ohio State, Auburn, etc. someone has to be the fall-guy to let schools know that the NCAA will enforce their rules - but only when they absolutely have to.
no one deserves the death penalty... sorry i just watched Pony Express too many times. That destroys a program longer than how long it was successful. And destroying a FB program does more damage than to just the football program... it hurts the whole school.
Does anyone think Al Golden knew about any of this? How bad does that suck to take that job and facing the possibility of not having any games for 2 years!
