Cavinder Twins Fire Back At NCAA Over NIL Punishment and Fines With Bold Statement

Written by TrevStone

Miami’s Cavinder Twins – Hanna and Haley have responded to the NCAA punishing their team and coach for violating NIL regulations. Which has been crazy to me. We haven’t really heard of the NCAA going after any men yet? Maybe they have. But it surely isn’t anything like this. Actually cough, cough, it has never happened before.

The people in charge of college sports issued its first-ever NIL sanction on Friday, suspending Miami women’s basketball coach Katie Meier for three games for introducing the twins, Haley and Hanna Cavinder, to billionaire promoter John Ruiz.

Oh, wow! How crazy. Tell me something that doesn’t bother anything at all. These two have taken the world by storm and it makes complete sense – look at them, but this don’t make sense at all.

The Miami-based booster posted a photo last April showing the Hurricanes stars outside of his house after dinner and it’s gotten the program in trouble.

In the words of Kobe Bryant:

“A case involving Miami women’s basketball players Haley and Hanna Cavinder reached a negotiated resolution that resulted in a three-game suspension for Hurricanes coach Katie Meier, which she served at the beginning of the 2022-23 season,” Sports Illustrated reports. At least they didn’t suspend or do anything to the twins but still. This didn’t need to happen.

“The Cavinder twins, who are social media sensations with a vast following, were not sanctioned—which is consistent with the NCAA’s stance that it does not plan to penalize athletes themselves for NIL-adjacent infractions.”

The women’s program was also fined $5,000 plus one percent of their budget and put on probation for a year, while official visits and recruiting days have also been reduced.

Talk about a stupid punishment. All over a meal? The twins have something to say about it and I don’t blame them.

@cavindertwins dear NCAA, scared that female athletes have value? 🤥 #fyp #basketball #foryou ♬ original sound – 💘.

It all makes sense. They are mad they’re taking everything over on social media – but in reality it only helps the sport.
