10:20 AM ET 06.09 | With the University of Miami just days away from its hearing in front of NCAA's infractions committee, two sources confirmed to The Miami Herald that Sports Illustrated is in the final stages of writing an expose about the NCAA and its investigation into the school's athletics program, including not-previously-published allegations from former UM booster Nevin Shapiro. Shapiro told SI that he used inside information obtained from UM coaches to gamble on Hurricanes football games, according to the sources. Shapiro alleged that coaches shared with him information --- such as whether a particular injured player would be available to play --- in at least two games, including in 2005 and a 2007 game against North Carolina, which UM lost, 33-27. According to a third source, the NCAA previously investigated Shapiro's gambling claims but found no concrete evidence and did not make any allegations regarding gambling in UM's Notice Of Allegations. That frustrated Shapiro, who believed the NCAA did not adequately investigate his claims involving the matter.

This doesn't sound good for the University of Miami!!!!! I know Shapiro is a convicted felon and some fans say, we shouldn't believe him, but LLoyd Lake was a convicted felon and the NCAA believed him!!

In further news, Shapiro finally admits he really is the Easter bunny.

Offing Shapiro won't make the allegations go away. The "EEwww" is in deep doo-doo.

There does not seem to be any great forthcoming confessions from the Admin folks that embraced him. In particular Donna Abe Vigoda Shillelagh. She blames the media.

When a team is average/good and then all of a sudden becomes a national power for a few years there is always seems to be some funny business. USC, Oreg, Auburn, UNC, Miss St. (only good for 2 years but still), Shall I go on?

The NCAA will do everything in its power to ignore Shapiro and continue the fantasy that NCAA football is anything other than a professional sports activity with an interest solely in making as much money as possible.

As a Lifelong CANES Fan living in Northern Cali The NCAA is a Joke, MIAMI was STUPID for letting this Rat Faced SOB Get in so good with the People that Matter, MIAMI didn't have a 2 Yr. Run of Dominance it was more around from '99 when DORSEY took over at QB an then they thrashed The Ol' Ball Coach when he was still with FLORIDA in the SUGAR BOWL to 2003 when the CANES beat FSU in the ORANGE BOWL 18-14
