08:38 AM ET 08.29 | Five months ago, UM's website called Nevin Shapiro ``an ardent, devoted, intense supporter.'' A student lounge was named in his honor. Now, facing years in prison for allegedly running a Ponzi scheme, Shapiro is writing a book about the UM football program in which he alleges former Canes players committed NCAA violations, said his attorney, Maria Elena Perez. Perez said Shapiro told the federal government about the violations, which are alleged to be major, but it did not investigate because ``that's not their area.''

Hot babies? That is just sick.
Mixed friends? Well yeah, my friends are mixed up. So what?

Interesting...but whether UM is guilty of violations or not, I am thoroughly sick of folks like Mr. Shapiro. Exploitative slime like this has no business near any college campus or program. It is scum like Mr. Shapiro that is destroying college athletics.

Agreed. This guy gave $300K of stolen money to the athletic dept. Uncle Luke paid players for hits.

I have a lot of respect for what Randy Shannon is doing especially considering the culture he's trying to change.

They are lucky to have Shannon there. I respect the man too.

Hope the NCAA gives them the USC treatment. After all, doesn't matter that none of the current players or staff were there when violations occurred.... right?

August 29, 2010  10:21 AM ET

As for the argument that the accusations are from an accused felon.... well, that apparently doesn't matter to the NCAA either.

The thing that wakes me up in the middle of the night is how many other programs are wating to be besmirched like this.

Answer: Every single one of them.

It was two upstanding gentlemen like Mr. Shapiro that helped to leave a permanent black mark on our '93 National Title. It was thanks to the efforts of Mr. Raul Bey and his lackey, Mr. Nate Cebrun, that Coach Spurrier was able to dub us "Free Shoes University." While even I get a laugh out of that one-liner, the underlying implications sting to this day.
