Boom! Shit's real, bro. Beyond this, I really don't know what else to say, so I'll just leave you with some pics and video I find relevant."In 100 hours of jailhouse interviews during Yahoo! Sports’ 11-month investigation, Hurricanes booster Nevin Shapiro described a sustained, eight-year run of rampant NCAA rule-breaking, some of it with the knowledge or direct participation of at least seven coaches from the Miami football and basketball programs. At a cost that Shapiro estimates in the millions of dollars, he said his benefits to athletes included but were not limited to cash, prostitutes, entertainment in his multimillion-dollar homes and yacht, paid trips to high-end restaurants and nightclubs, jewelry, bounties for on-field play (including bounties for injuring opposing players), travel and, on one occasion, an abortion."
Remember this? Seems like a good idea now:
Also, Hurricanes got nautical themed pashmina afghans:
You know what's really sad? Miami didn't even win the 2002 championship. You can complain about bullshit PI all you want, but a team this jacked up on boats and hoes should have been unstoppable. Better get below deck, with a dick in your hand:
And AD Paul Dee? He is King Hypocrite now (or, King Hippo-crite - couldn't resist).He served as chair of the NCAA Committee on Infractions and led that body in their deliberations on USC's early 2000's hijinks. That shit seems, pardon the pun, Bush-League by comparison (get it? Ha.) I mean, one player compared to pretty much an entire program? No contest, Mr. Dee.
|Chairman of what now? Oh, that's hilarious!|
UPDATE: It reaches. Apparently, Shapiro had inappropriate contact with players who ended up signing with other schools, including Georgia's Orson Charles. I'm not sure what the penalty for getting a tour of a closet is when you're a junior in high school, though:
“Orson Charles was a tight end out of Plant City [High School] who was Robert Marve’s teammate. And because I had a real close relationship with Robert, Robert’s high school coach, Robert Weiner, came to Miami, Marve brought him to my house and he was with Orson Charles. I showed [Charles] my closet. The reason why I show all the kids my closet is because that’s where I had like 50 to 70 UM game-worn jerseys of all the best players in the last however long. That was our first visit. I saw him a second time and I think it was a Miami football camp.”
