According to reports, the NCAA has put the Miami investigation on hold b/c they relied on improper information during their investigation.
Apparently the NCAA used deposition testimony supplied to them by an attorney for Nevin Shapiro, their informant on the Miami case. What is crazy is that deposition testimony is sworn testimony under oath and each side gets to cross examine the witness.
In PSU sanctions, the testimony relied upon by Freeh & NCAA was not under oath, no one had a chance to cross examine and all of it was hearsay. Sounds promising!!!
Mark Emmert said, "We cannot have the NCAA bringing forward an allegation that's predicated on information that was collected by processes none of us could stand for," Emmert said. "We're going to move it as fast as possible, but we have to get this right."
Dana O'Neill, a PSU grad said, "Instead of behaving like a watchdog for college sports, it looks more and more like the Keystone Cops. On Wednesday's conference call, NCAA president Mark Emmert said Nevin Shapiro's lawyer was on the payroll but no one knew, which sounds an awful lot like lack of institutional control. Perhaps Emmert should give himself a show cause?"
We need people like Todd Blackledge and Dana O'Neill, and Joe Pos to get out the word & call the NCAA out for their hypocrisy. Each time this idiot opens his mouth, he says something that contradicts the sanctions they levied against PSU. Its time we put the full court press and get these sanctions tossed. I believe its ony a matter of time for the sanctions to be put on hold, modified or lifted. Hopefully before the 2013 season starts.

its true dude.....I mean, the discussion is in PA vs NCAA. How is someone supposed to know that without going through 5 pages of that first? I constantly see this behavior, and I am not refferring to my posts
And people get pissed at me bc its the popular thing to do.
It took me a while to figure that out too. But Shapiros lawyer also billed the NCAA for the info, and they paid him. Wow. That's the only thing you've missed.
This just in ... Seems the NCAA got most me their testimony against Miami from Lennay Kekua.
Bruce Feldman wrote about it 5 months ago. So Feldman knows 5 months before the NCAA does? HAHAAH
"Whoever’s trying to kill me isn’t getting the job done. But one day, I’m going to punch that f___r in the face."
Yes, anonymous message boards are nothing if not a popularity contest. Brilliant.
I was thinking the same thing. Lol.
Stewart Mandel article on the NCAA rule changes.
Found this part interesting:
One head coach with an opening on his staff said he's waiting to hear from his athletic director if he can divide the money into two positions: one coaching, one recruiting. Many others will presumably meet with their bosses to request a bigger payroll soon.
BOB has an opening on his staff... Just sayin'...
Recent NCAA rule changes could cause mayhem for college football recruits, coaches and recruits' family members.
"waiting to hear from his athletic director" sounds pretty familiar to some of the rumors going around about Joyner.
""Just because it is allowable for the entire staff to be involved in recruiting and those relationships doesn't necessarily mean it's wise to open the floodgates for everybody," said one BCS-conference staffer. "The response will mirror different recruiting tactics people have. Those that employ the scorched earth tactic of sending so much mail and so much electronic communication to the highest volume possible -- you've now opened more legal manpower for that scorched earth."
