Heat death is based on the concept of entropy, which holds that disordered states are more stable than ordered states. We experience entropy in real world examples like a glass window being easier to break than to reassemble or create anew. On the scale of the universe, complex systems like stars, planets and galaxies are the glass window, and the Australian physicists have found that supermassive black holes are breaking them faster than we could have imagined. -- Popular Science, October 2009

Even by the grimmest estimates, the heat death of the universe is still uncountable centuries from occurring. Rest easy, however, in the equally grim assurance that when that dark, cold day winks out, Miami and the NCAA will still be swapping barbs:

The NCAA's enforcement staff responded to Miami's claims and harsh criticisms of the NCAA by lashing back, claiming that UM is "grasping at straws" in an attempt to disqualify members of the enforcement team and that it is "offended" by Miami's insinuations in regards to the case. -- Bruce Feldman, April 2013 Of all the parties we never thought we'd have to remind that It's Not Called Feelingsball.
