CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that Miami's baseball team has been tested for performance-enhancing drug use, including human growth hormone.
Results have not arrived, according to the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the university has not authorized the information's release. Miami's drug policy includes random steroid testing, but not HGH.
However, given the school's link to baseball's latest drug mess, the Hurricanes wanted additional testing.
Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, a Miami trustee, was among those listed in a Miami New Times report last month alleging that a now-defunct clinic in Coral Gables was providing PEDs. Also listed was a Hurricanes strength coach, Jimmy Goins.
Christopher Walsh covers Alabama football for BamaOnline, 247Sports, and is the author of 18 books.
I can tell you for sure HGH is not in SEC Baseball, heck they will bust you on many powders you can buy in the local GNC. Players are tested each year without warning or without knowing what drug they are being tested for.

HGH can not be detected in a urine sample. The blood test that is used is very expensive and PED testing in the NCAA is a joke. The give a weeks notice before coming. UA tests the players on their own, but again the HGH blood test is not used due to the cost. Not a flame, but PED's are everywhere in sports including the SEC
I can only speak for SEC baseball, Enhancers would get you in the draft to be tested later by the club that drafted you,
I didnt know any guys that used HGH but did know of steroids. Certain guys were singled out off the team for this test, I was one of them. Thing is all the guys they picked were guys that worked hard in the gym. All the guys that juiced really didnt work hard so didnt get much use out of it as they were not picked because I think the trainer picked guys by looking at physique.
In pro ball i knew of guys that juiced and my roomate one of my years did use and got caught. It was a slap on the wrist the first time. throughout the season we would show up to locker room and they would be there to test with no notice. Funny thing was the guys that worried about the tests were not because of juice it was because of weed
You can't say hgh isn't anywhere in sec baseball just bc they test doesn't mean people aren't doing it and getting away with it. Hgh is at every level of sports from high school up
I was wondering if you would chime in on this.....didn't you play in the mid-late 90's?
98-00 at Bama
Not sure if I agree on HGH being rampant. Growth is much more expensive then your basic steroid and harder to come bye. I have a few friends here that get and it is costly. Not sure how many high school/college kids have the funds for that product
Being from Cali juice at my HS was very rampant. Was easy to drive to Tijuana and come back across border. Was about a 4 hour drive. When I went off to college one of my good friends had an in with the Fresno St football team and was making a killing selling to guys on the team.

Most dont realize that for HGH to work, it has to be used in conjunction with a Test based product....The recipe in the NFL is...Take all the roids you want off season...no drug tests..switch to HGH in camp..helps with recovery, size , strength retention etc. Most fans dont realize that once you get to that level, staying there is the #1 goal...HGH allows that..
From a PED standpoint...there is no substitute for roids...The power, speed and mass come from the drugs that were created by Zigler...Hitlers top chemist.
Use a water based product and you can flush it out in 48 hrs prior to drug test...The best PED's are all oil based
I thought so. I'll tell you what may be happening.....Peptides....There's a lot of new products that are not banned (yet) out there and the new craze is Peptides. Most of them work in conjuction (in various ways) with the pituitary gland to help natural HGH secretion. Others help with sleeping disorders which in turn puts people into the deepest sleep and also helps release natural HGH. There's some that really burn fat like HGH, but don't have the sides like Insulin issues.
I think as fast as this stuff is coming out that it may be the new/safer alternative to Anabolics and may end up working better. Currently they aren't as good, but they keep getting better.....
dude, HGH can't be caught because it's not even tested for. urine tests don't pick it up. i would venture to say over 35% of D1 players are on steroids or HGH after talking to some friends that played in college
10 Major Poll National Titles (CFB record)
35 Bowl Wins (CFB record)
72 Wins over last 6 years (CFB record)
Personally, I'd rather have the athletes on my favorite team be pot smokers than heavy drinkers. With no hangover, and less negative health effects than alcohol, it only makes sense from a physical stand point. Yeah, its not legal YET. But that is just another law that creates a lack of respect for our legal system and law enforcement officers.
Def see your point, we would go out a good amount in the season more in Pro ball then in college as pro ball you play everyday so need a stress release. Not to get crushed or anything. Not say I was suprised but how many weed smokers there are and how often. One year I got to spring training a few weeks early and we always get tested the first week of spring training with physicals, etc. Guy i lived with would get high all the time. I got concerned that I would fail just being close, would ask him to sit outside or I would leave till he was done and come back to playstation
