The Mess at Miami

The latest scandal for the perpetually plagued NCAA, Miami is now amid a mess of allegations. News surfaced earlier in the week that booster Nevin Shapiro provided thousands of illegal benefits to past and present Hurricanes from 2002 to '10, among which included prostitutes, cars, paid vacations. Currently jailed for his part in a $930 million Ponzi scheme, Shapiro also revealed that his gifts were acknowledged by coaches and staff, all of whom made no effort to stop him. Seventy-three athletes were implicated in the report, making this arguably the most blatant NCAA violation of all-time -- and a cause for the harshest of possible punishments.
