Number one, this entire thing is taking way too long.  Miami should've been dead by now.  That being said...are you farking kidding me? Just when you think the NCAA can't get any dumber, they hire someone who is tied TO THE PERSON THEY'RE INVESTIGATING to help them make their case.

Seriously NCAA, just stop.  You're obviously a sham at this point.

Fark the NCAA. Is there any organization more hypocritical and self righteous than the farking NCAA?

And what do you know, turns out they're incompetent too.

Well as long as nobody trade a jersey for a tattoo, they should be in the clear.

UNC got a simple smack on the wrist. I guess that means Miami should get a stern look and a finger wagging.

Middle Tennessee State or Western Michigan is going to PAY for this outrage!!!

Basically, they just gave Miami a "get out of jail free" card with this. No way that this isn't moving towards a lawsuit of some kind against the NCAA.

I wonder if we'll ever get to the point that a few of the big schools say "Screw it, and screw you NCAA. We're going to do our own thing, and forget this fake 'Student Athlete' game charade we've been playing".

I honestly hope we do. One of the reasons I want the four super conferences to happen is then those 4 conferences can leave the NCAA and form their own governing body. The big schools will have the revenue stream to pay their player and the like. Whereas with the current NCAA model, all the small schools had a fit when the large schools proposed adding in a cost of living stipend to the scholarship. Middle Indiana State of Buttfarkistan and the others all voted no because it would give the big schools a recruiting advantage (yes they really said that, as if they seriously think Alabama doesn't already hold all the cards over them).

They're going nuts on Missouri sports radio that the attorney (now fired) who was investigating both men's bball coach Haith and who had been involved with the Shabazz Muhammad investigation is a KU grad. I wouldn't want to be a NCAA rep anywhere near Columbia about now.

Auburn should have gotten the death penalty for cam newton. I can only imagine how badly the NCAA failed on that one

Okay, I have to ask. Given what college sports has turned into, what with kickbacks and undertable deals and surreptitious handwashing, could this have been an intentional decision somebody made? I'd be looking into who made the decision to hire her and what their connection(if there is one) is to Miami.

Let's see, major power house, check. South of the Mason-Dixon line, check. Part of the Good Old Boy network, check.

No major sanctions coming. Oregon will get major sanctions for the $25K for a player they didn't keep, and tOSU got it over lying about jerseys and Tats. FSU institutional cheating? Nope. Cam Netwon (The player didn't know so it's okay), Nope.

Letting a Notre Dame person to vote on USC punishment is ridiculous. The NCAA is beyond a joke. The system is rigged so the haves keep having and the up and comers are punished for anything.

Too many people still have a hard-on for taking Miami down. Nice try, though.

Not trolling here, but has any actual evidence surfaced implicating Auburn paying Cam? Last I remember it was pretty obvious that something probably went down but I don't recall there being any hard proof.

Wait, Haith is tied in with the Miami case. Are you telling me that the person who blabbed to her husband about Shabazz Muhammad case screwed up again?

This attorney is definitely in line for the 2013 Slimeball Attorney of the Year award.

"Look, I'm this guy you're investigating's bankruptcy attorney but SURE I'll take your money and ambush him when he's under oath."

Either that or they've been watching too much pro wrestling and the attorney wants to pull a swerve.

Yes as far as I know there was no hard proof. Basically, Auburn paid some guy to get Cam there, but they couldn't prove Cam received compensation from the guy or that Cam was paying the guy, so no big deal apparently.

FIFA, but that's not important right now.

The only thing I'm going to miss about the NCAA when it finally dies is the damn basketball tournament.

I cannot help but think this was not just some sort of accident or mistake...

I think, when all is said and done, someone in the NCAA, itself, is going to be charged with some crimes for involvement in this case.

Or it will be brushed under the rug when Miami is accepted as a member of the SEC. Whatever.

Cam Newton and the other players who were allegedly paid. Not to mention the academic fraud that was taking place on campus with respect to their athletes.

You know, things ESPN hasn't really ever talked about. Therefore, they didn't happen.

ten foiled hats: Too many people still have a hard-on for taking Miami down.


There were enough first-hand accounts in "The U" for Miami to receive some NCAA investigations into the school's dealings in the 1980s and beyond.

And that's just the finished movie that was aired. I'd LOVE to learn of some of the material that was cut.

Oh, believe me, as a 'Canes fan, I know. I was just responding to the guy who was of the opinion that this latest bit is going to go away. There seem to be a lot of people of that opinion, (not necessarily on Fark) but I'm not one of them. Southern (former) powerhouse, "Good Old Boy network", etc., whatever. If the NCAA can bring the hammer, they will. (Now let's see if they can.)

It's an amusing coincidence.  Granted, you can't expect ethics from a Beaker, but I doubt there was any kind of conspiracy to destroy Kansas' enemies.  If there was though, we're burning Lawrence.
