I expect Miami will be hoisted on Dee's own petard, so to speak, since the primary logic behind USC's sanctions was that the only way USC could not have known about the Bush and Mayo situations was for compliance to actively avoid doing their jobs. Hammer, meet another nail.
However, I will quibble with one thing -- the infractions committee does not have anything to do with clearinghouse operations, so it's not factual to say that Dee cleared Rose to play. And I doubt any other leader of the infractions committee would have made a different decision given what the organization's rules are.
