08:20 AM ET 02.13 | Nevin Shapiro's says his work isn't yet done. As he sits behind a computer in a New Orleans prison, the rage still boils inside [Shapiro]. The angry e-mails this winter paint the picture of a man determined to destroy the UM football program. But UM remains optimistic he won't be nearly as successful as he claims he will be. "The public is going to hate me worse in the next coming months," Shapiro, serving a 20-year sentence for a Ponzi scheme, wrote in numerous e-mails over the past few months. 'It's going to be severe and catastrophic. My feelings are getting inflamed and I'm going to pop off pretty soon with regards to them and the NCAA. I'm coming for them both [UM and former players] and I'm going to be successful."

With a 20 year sentence I would imagine he's butt hurt quite a bit.

He's coming for them...all the way to the prison gate at which point I'm pretty sure the gate will be closed. Maybe he has some of "Guido's guys" on the outside to take care of his business!

NCAA is going to hammer the U. But the NCAA has been weak lately handing out slaps on the wrists for USC and Ohio State so maybe thug U has nothing to worry about other than this Shapiro idiot.

USC punishment = tOSU punishment? Me thinks your Alabama arithmetic may need some extra tutoring.
