But the programs have culture problems.....NCAA sucks!
Envy the past, Fear the future
what are they gonna do? punish themselves? My goodness I hate them.
I think this will give more ammo to the lack of credibility the NCAA has right now and will only strengthen the case of PA vs. NCAA

Surprised they didn't hire Freeh!
LOL...there's only so many times the NCAA can shoot themselves in the foot and they continously seem to be doing it, which is fine by me.

This has got to give steam to the PA v NCAA case... surprised this thread isn't blowing up right now, this is big news.
So does this mean that Miami is going to be good going forward?
I love this.
I like the way you think! I'm sure the attorney's for the state might have an interest here.
corbetts case was just made. case has standing now without a doubt based on todays events.
Now would be a great time for the BOT to grow a set.
Agree, but for some reason I'm not optimistic.

You should hear some of the crap Emmert is spouting as we speak:
Emmert has launched external review into NCAA enforcement environment to ensure it operates w/ integrity & accountability
President Emmert: "Intent is to ensure investigatory functions operate w/ integrity and are fair and consistent."

Well the NCAA couldn't have botched the PSU investigation because there was no investigation...
For the lawyers on the board, how does this affect the state's case.
I am more stunned that the NCAA admitted something like this at all, especially at this time given the heat they are about to feel given the PA case... just seems really odd that Emmert would try and stand up now. With everything we know about Miami, seems like everyone has been waiting for the NCAA to step in... had they laid out the sanctions, most likely know one was going to challenge how/where they got the information... So why is he doing this now?
No way in hell Emmert was doing this to be "honest" and hold his own organizations feet to the fire... has to be an ulterior motive, and with the current case of the state of PA, seems natural there is some tie in... this just keeps getting more and more bizzarre
yea the only issue i could see is that the investigation of PSU came from PSU
which wasnt an investigation of ncaa rules. freeh admitted as much and members of his team blasted the ncaa for using the report in lieu of an investigation
We have heard many times from people that the NCAA would want to avoid any discovery in the PA case, if it makes it that far... I would think this solidifies that position, that the NCAA sure isn't going to want anyone else snooping around in it's affairs after this mess...
The comments about emmert and the ncaa on espn are pretty funny. A lot of pro PSU stuff too.
They are complete idiots. When the info came out in the Yahoo reports, all the Miami fans were saying they didnt have much as far as evidence of major violations. In order to make there case they went and got sworn testimony without supoena power. Then they extorted former players who they have no jurisdiction over. My guess is this helps us, and it definitely helps Corbett. Fuel for the fire.
sorry if this is obvious, but how does this news solidify Corbett/PA's standing? I agree it makes the case stronger, but I'm not seeing how it relates to the issue of standing.

A little off topic but Gov. Corbett is going to have his dose of reality too. Apparently newly elected Attorney General for PA is said to have been interested in finding out what took so long in prosecuting Sandusky. As bad as all this seems I hope everyone in all this junk gets "just desserts".

Ok, so given my emotions and hightened skepticism based on the last 14 months of my life, here is my worst case scenario. The NCAA is doing this given a botched Miami investigation and the fact that they see they will be exposed anyways in the PA vs. NCAA suit. They will take the bothced Miami investigation on the chin given it was completed by the organization. Miami gets off light. In addition the suit PA brings is settled with the NCAA agreeing to throw out sanctions and the sole findings of the Freeh report with the agreement that they be allowed to launch their own investigation under the newly organized overseeing panel they create. We then sit on pins and needles for 2 years wondering what they find. Again.....just the new me coming out.
Should have hired Freeh to do the investigation.
"My intent is to ensure our investigatory functions operate with integrity and are fair and consistent with our member schools, athletics staff and most importantly our student-athletes," he added.
So our most recent updates say that the NCAA had Shapiro's bankruptcy attorney ask questions that could help the NCAA investigation. She did so and then sent a bill to the NCAA, which according to them will not be paid. Our prez came out with a nice statement, back handing the NCAA, to apply pressure to them. Some people state that they will accept our bowl bans and do no further punishments.
But here is how it helps Corbett....the reason they weren't allowed to do it, is because the NCAA has no involvement with bankruptcy hearings. How do they have any involvement in child molestation that didn't involve one of their athletes or coaches for that matter.
