…don’t you remember how Butch Davis cleaned up The U?
Georgia Tech has been busted twice in the last decade by the NCAA. UNC-CHeats is currently entangled in perhaps the worst NCAA scandal since SMU received the death penalty in 1987.
Now, Miami is getting sucked back into the NCAA’s vortex – click here
Great opportunity for the likes of Florida State, Clemson and NC State.
The following link has video of Erin Andrews, but also a response from former coach Larry Coker (ESPN.com):
Larry Coker, the Hurricanes’ coach from 2001 through 2006 who now holds the head coaching job at Texas-San Antonio, said he recognized Shapiro by name but wouldn’t be able to by face.
“If he walked up to me right now I wouldn’t know it,” Coker told ESPN’s Joe Schad. “He was ‘around the program.’ I certainly wasn’t aware of any improprieties. Now, when you look at college athletics today, would it surprise me if somebody gave gifts to players? No, it wouldn’t.”
Another former Miami coach, Randy Shannon, who was fired in November, had no comment when contacted by ESPN.
Heather Dinich has a statement from the U:
“When Nevin Shapiro made his allegations nearly a year ago, he and his attorneys refused to provide any facts to the University of Miami. The University notified the NCAA Enforcement officials of these allegations. We are fully cooperating with the NCAA and are conducting a joint investigation. The University of Miami takes these matters very seriously.”
Is it me, or are we seeing a trend of institutionalized cheating that doesn’t actually benefit the institution, rather only individuals?
