If this is the stuff that is going on and not getting caught I cannot imagine the little things that are missed by the NCAA. They cannot possibly be serious about catching the Ohio States and Florida's of the world.

Expecting schools to police themselves is lunacy..they are not going to bite the hand that feeds them.

Freet said. “We notified the NCAA enforcement officials of these allegations. We are fully cooperating with the NCAA and are conducting a joint investigation. We take these matters very seriously.”

Freet (Miami associate AD for communications) says this after they are caught. What a bunch of crap. Just open it up already so that everyone can play on an even playing field.

Can it be even worse than we think/know?

What do investigators say to one of their own? Dee is a former NCAA infractions committee chairman, the sheriff in charge of sentencing NCAA wrongdoers. He's the guy who sat in judgment of USC when the program was burned to the ground, then scolded the school for letting it happen.

NCAA in crackdown mode

With a laundry list of spectacular allegations against a high-profile donor, dozens of athletes and perhaps coaches, Miami (Fla.) has moved into the cross hairs of an NCAA vowing to crack down on serious miscreants.

"If -- and I'm underscoring if -- these allegations are true," NCAA President Mark Emmert told USA TODAY on Wednesday, "this is a case that points to all the fundamental problems we have with booster and third-party engagement and third-party activity going on, swirling around a program."

Emmert orchestrated a retreat for more than 50 university CEOs and about a dozen school and conference athletics officials. They plotted reforms in a number of areas including rules enforcement. There, Emmert has called for simplifying the rulebook to focus on more egregious violations and hitting perpetrators with stiffened sanctions "that, when they're imposed, provide serious second thoughts for anybody who thinks they can engage in this kind of behavior with impunity."

Asked if a return to the "death penalty" shutting down a program for a year or more, a sanction already in the books but used only once against a major-college program (Southern Methodist in 1987) would serve that purpose, he said, "We need to make sure that we've got, for the committee on infractions, all the tools they need to create those kinds of deterrents."

I don't support the "death penalty" but this situation should certainly result in penalties harsher than USC received.

I'm looking forward to seeing the University of Miami get the "death penalty" for their football program.

Sure, the guy ratting them out is a jock sniffing slime-ball but he's a slime-ball with an apparently inexhaustible trove of credit card receipts, bank statements, photos, and other evidence. . .

I think the death penalty should be the punishment of last resort for the NCAA. That being said, based on what I have read... I think that this is exactly the punishment the Miami deserves. Players knew, coaches knew, and you damn well k ow the administrators knew.
