CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- The NCAA has found what it calls "a very severe issue of improper conduct" committed by former members of its own enforcement program during the Miami investigation and will not deliver the long-awaited notice of allegations against the Hurricanes until an external review is completed.
NCAA president Mark Emmert announced the findings Wednesday. The sports governing body said former enforcement staff members worked with the criminal defense attorney for former Miami booster and convicted Ponzi scheme architect Nevin Shapiro "to improperly obtain information ... through a bankruptcy proceeding that did not involve the NCAA."
"I am deeply disappointed and frustrated and even angry about these circumstances," said Emmert, who also described it as "a shocking affair."
Miami president Donna Shalala, in a statement released through the university, said that she is "frustrated, disappointed and concerned" that the NCAA may have compromised the investigation.
Question: Can the NCAA put itself on probation?
The NCAA is revealing that it has found an issue of improper conduct within its own enforcement program during its investigation into the compliance practices of Miami's athletic department.
What a crock smh
Wtf all this probing.. Some miami player had sex with an alien? That is an illegal benefit ?..
This is BS, so they can sanction everyon else but when it comes down to the biggest case , they fuck it up... Come on..

Too logical, too obvious, too simple, therefore unacceptable to this board...
I wonder how many violations they made when they investigated the Buckeyes.
But there is some good news out of this "Emmert said during the conference call that information obtained surreptitiously was a very small part of the case and would be “thrown out” —" Meaning, that even if they have to toss what they got thru the bankruptcy hearing, it was a very small part of the case and the NcAA still has enough to blast them.

I cannot stand Emmert. He is such an ass-clown! (A term I never heard before I joined this Board but one that is entirely appropriate when referring to Marky Mark.)
Gee. His organization fucked up...again.
There were hookers involved, which would be a violation, but I have not heard if any of them were aliens or American citizens...
I can say that I've frequently felt the NCAA should go probe itself. However, "probe" wasn't exactly the word I used.
The NCAA should be eliminated as an organization. It is corrupt, inconsistent, and ineffective.
If they get off with less sanctions then Ohio St who just had some free tatoo, I'm going to be disappointed. I just want it fair across the board in college sports, but that seems to much to ask for. I want all conferences to follow the same rules, it needs to be unified. Need to say if this happens, then this is the response. They need to blow it up, or the conferences need to say enough is enough and take over control. NCAA doesn't get any money off of football anyway, they have no involvement except enforcing the rules, which appearently they can't even do that. It's just sad.
Starting to think that cabin in the Wyoming wilderness with the aluminum foil lined ceiling and walls is a better idea everyday. Corruption is just rampant anymore, federal trials have probably been thrown out for less. Next will be a screw up in the Oregon case.
NCAA organization needs to be careful, with the OSU, Oregon, Miami, Virginia Tech, North Carolina and who knows who else the NCAA is getting a small black eye now suddenly the committee is also under investigation, not looking good for the reputation of college football.
The NCAA is no different than any other organization such as our elected officials, police forces and ect. it all boils down to the highest bidder. As Howard Hughes once said....ANYONE CAN BE BAUGHT, IT'S THE PRICE THAT HAS TO BE AGREED UPON.
This is just a pretext to drop all charges. Like when a criminal confesses and the judge throws it out because he wasn't read his Miranda rights properly. Someone got paid under the table and now all charges will be eventually dropped because "evidence was obtained illegally". What a crock.
When I saw this, it was my first thought as well. "Cryami" is gonna skate on a technicallity. If this works, Uncle Phil Knght and Oregon will do the same thing if they can. What does this say for PeeSU's law suit? Hell, even those child molesting turds might get off now after turning their heads and allowing children to be raped for 12 years. OSU outta sue now too. Hey, I got it.... $MU should sue for defamation, personal damages, and lost revenues dating back to 1987.
Well, I guess the bright side is maybe out of all of this mess, the NCAA will no longer be the giant, unfair, subjective monster it has become.
You geniuses figure what would happen to college football if the ncaa folded ? Do you think things would go normal ?lolololololol there needs to be a governing body to run the sports.
Oh, they don't need to go anywhere. Their shot group just needs tightened up. No more of this school gets hammered and this school did something worse, but gets over because "dad didn't tell junior about the $80K he got just for his son to commit there." It's all about standards being properly written, taught, inforced, and being fair and consistant with punishment. Free of media, and public influence. It will never be completely clean, but for the NCAA to hold and lay the hammer, they need to lead by example.
NCAA - trying to figure out which one of Miami's wrists to slap. After all, they'll have to slap Oregon on the other.
I always said that the NCAA can go probe itself.
I hope so!
plain and simply they are going to say the info on Miami was obtained illegally and can't be held against them.
this is BS! The NCAA is a private organization they can do what they want, but i guess it all has to be legal how it was obtained!
What a bunch of BS
Mark Emmert=Colonel Klink
Good news for PSU.
I thought that initially, but now I seriously doubt that. Remember, the NCAA didn't do it's own investigation on Penn State. They used the Freeh report WITH the school's blessing and approval for the NCAA to rule on the info. A waiver was signed by the president. What I find quite interesting is how many PSU fans say the Freeh report is flawed, but NO ONE at all has done any type of investigation of their own to show anything to the contrary. No one is going to either. They Know better because it would either be an outright lie, or it would uncover so much more. Trust me, they know they don't want to go there. No one at any school would. Instead all the $ is being bet on the governor's attempt to play the technicality game and get sympathy from the court system. Another attempt at something new. This suit is nothing more than a lot of disgruntled hand wringing and banter. If PSU wins this, every school that has ever been punished needs to file suit. Again, Freeh was contracted by PSU itself to do this investigation. There is no reason at all for the former director of the FBI to be paid to do an independent investigation of this magnitude and have it be flawed. I guess though I might be optimistic about this if I were included in a fan-base that refused to see the wrong that WAS allowed to go on right under everyone's nose for years just so the school and it's football program wouldn't take the perception, financial and competitive hit. At a minimum, a majority of the state of PA doesn't even agree with this suit. Not even the majority of the politicians do. It's also funny that Tom Corbett was a member of the PSU BOT and the state AG that refused to prosecute Sandusky originally isn't it?
It will probably be good news for "Cryami" however. It will come out that the all the damning evidence was improperly obtained.

Miami thread and the guys with Hard-ons show up for PSU..
There is so much wrong with your thread, I'll just make a couple bullet points...
1) Others are doing their own investigations and those results will be published
2) Those investigations are irrelevant because...
a) The NCAA punished PSU for criminal matters that are outside of their jurisdiction
b) The NCAA, already declared a monopoly by the courts, needs to be consistent with how the investigate and hand down penalties.
c) The Miami case helps PA in their case because now they can show that the NCAA does not handle things correctly and consistently.
