Miami, which has sat out the last two post-seasons and three post-season games (the third game being the 2012 ACC Title Game) by self-imposing penalties on itself in the wake of the Nevin Shapiro scandal, will not be hit with any further post-season ban, a source told CBS Tuesday morning. UM will lose nine scholarships over the next three seasons, the source added.

Since word of the dealings of Shapiro, the rogue former UM booster broke in August, 2010, the University has been in a state of limbo to some degree. In those months and years since most of the people involved with Shapiro are long gone. Head coach Al Golden, who walked in after this mess surfaced, has the Canes 6-0 and ranked No. 7 in the country. None of the players on Golden’s roster have been linked to Shapiro’s alleged improper benefits.
