The University of Miami has made the decision to withhold the football team from bowl consideration for the 2012 postseason, UM announces

No postseason for #Canes this season.

#UM Interim Director of Athletics Blake James informed the team this morning.
With Miami now out of the postseason, the ACC has five bowl eligible teams - Florida State, Clemson, N.C. State, Georgia Tech, and Duke. The conference has nine bowl tie-ins. Another fine example of the mediocrity of this conference.

Miami Hurricanes release:
The University of Miami has made the decision to withhold the football team from bowl consideration for the 2012 postseason. The decision was made in response to the ongoing NCAA inquiry and the University has informed both the NCAA and the Atlantic Coast Conference of its decision. The decision also means that should the Miami football team qualify for the ACC Championship Game, it will not be eligible to participate.
Interim Director of Athletics Blake James informed the team of the decision this morning, two days after the Hurricanes became bowl eligible with their sixth victory of the season.
The unprecedented decision to voluntarily withhold the football team from a second consecutive postseason was made by University leadership, including President Shalala, the Office of the General Counsel and Department of Athletics leaders. Considerable deliberation and discussion based on the status of the NCAA inquiry went into the decision-making process and, while acknowledging the impact that the decision will have on current student-athletes, coaches, alumni and fans, a determination was made that voluntarily withholding the football team from a second postseason was not only a prudent step for the University to take but will also allow for the football program and University to move forward in the most expedited manner possible.
The University and President Shalala have been clear from the start of the inquiry that Miami will cooperate fully and will seek the truth, no matter where the path might lead and that the institution will be stronger because of it. The University has already taken proactive measures to ensure more strict compliance with NCAA rules and continues to evaluate further steps.
No other self-imposed penalties have been issued at this time and to continue to protect the integrity of the inquiry, the University will have no further comment.
They still get a share of the bowl earnings, correct?
I believe that's correct, I think they got got $$$$ money last year. They shouldn't get anything its bs
They will probably get 1 more year and lose 5 Schollies, smart move.
Ahem, Ahem. Can someone remind Matthew Thomas?

This. We handle the Advertising for the Music City Bowl here in Nashville. There has been some worry the ACC will not have enough Bowl eligible teams so the Nashville Sports Council can select one.
Swofford has indeed achieved his goal of mediocre to crap football as a sport, and up Basketball with the advent of the two newest possible additions it looks like to me. May the fleas of a 10,000 camels nest in his nether region.
I said it.
I meant it.
I'm here to represent it!
I find trying to predict what the NCAA will do in situations like this to be a lost endeavor. They determine things on a case-by-case basis and don't follow precedents previously set.
Virginia Tech (if they beat Virginia) and Wake Forest (if they beat Vanderbilt) would be bowl eligible.
upvote for you sir.
We're kinda hoping we get to do the Hokie Pokie and ye turn aroon! Wake, not so much, as they don't travel all that well. We need to fill up our hotel rooms to keep the roach population from taking over, and the restaurants want to serve up mass quantities of dat Bahbakew 'n Cheese Grits.
If Miami wins at Duke are they allowed to call themselves ACC Coastal Co-Champions? I know USC last year was not allowed to even though they won Pac-12 South outright but Ohio State was allowed to crown themselves that this year.

Yeah, they get to share a trophy with Dabo and crew.
WTF? You serious?
Does Clemson accepting an at-large BCS bid affect those numbers? Would that make it 4 teams for 9 spots?
Good point. The Sun Bowl could be the last bowl an ACC team is tied into. Prob not though since VT will probably get in.
They are scared of getting their doors blown off in the ACC CG... (or atleast that's what I'm going to say to anyone who will listen, including Miami fans)
So two um teams that were barely bowl eligible make the "ultimate" sacrifice and forgo their well earned bowl to help soften the blow of impending penalties. Does the NCAA not see through this charade? And, the fact they get to cheat their way to mediocrity and give up bowl payouts and still take their enearned share just doesn't seem right. Pitiful.
Interim athletic director Blake James and head coach Al Golden addressed the team Monday morning following the university’s decision to self-impose a postseason ban for the second straight year.
Head coach Al Golden addressed the media Monday after the announcement that UM would self-impose a postseason ban for the second straight year amid an NCAA investigation.
Well teams don't usually ban themselves twice if they were going to get a slap on the wrist....Da "U" sional fans saying that's all it was going to be.
lol. R U for real? Worse than USC, they may...may have mitigated it slightly, at least from a Bowl ban perspective.
Best part u guys arent mentioning is Golden played with 6 under this years 85 schollies, and.is already factoring in for next year. Not sure we get more than probation. We werent gonna win these last two years anyway. Smart decisions from the number 1 academic institution in Florida I say. More bowl bans would put us on par for PSU territory and the two are no where close. Good luck versus GT. Should be a gimmie!
