NCAA has been on Miami case for five months

Posted August 17, 2011

Just a week after NCAA President Mark Emmert lead a retreat in Indianapolis for administrators and representatives to discuss reform in collegiate athletics, the spotlight of wrong-doing is again burning bright, this time on the University of Miami.

Emmert told Mike and Mike in the Morning on ESPN Radio Wednesday that that the NCAA has known about allegations of a booster's gifts to Miami athletes for about five months.

Emmert agrees the system that manages and oversees compliance with rules of amateurism needs to be addressed.

On Tuesday Yahoo! Sports unveiled a detailed investigative report on the thousands of improper benefits given to at least 72 Miami athletes between 2002 to 2010.

"We've had a whole string of these high profile cases that are very disturbing, and you can't look at that and say it's working well. It's not," Emmert said.

"We have to have a set of rules that are clear – that focus on the things that matter and not on the things that don't matter. We've got to clean out a rule book that has a variety of extraneous unenforceable rules and focus on those things that are serious threats."

Emmert couldn't answer specifically how long Miami's situation will take to assess.

"The average case is a six- or seven-month process," Emmert said. "We've had some you've seen in the past, even before my tenure, that the USC case took multiple years. But the reality is that most of these cases are resolved within a six- or seven-month period."

Miami is the latest in a string of major college football programs to present problems to the NCAA. Those problems, according to Emmert, were the largest focus of discussion at last week's retreat.

    Exactly. They love to get all over us about not having any class, but give me a break. Anyone who openly roots for programs to go through something like this is the one that needs some shaping up. I'm a die hard UNC fan, and I am embarrassed and ashamed of what some of our guys did, but more than anything, I am a FOOTBALL FAN, and I wish everyone would just play by the same rules so we could actually talk about football for a change instead of a new program being under investigation every week.

    HAHA come on badger, this has nothing to do with Carolina. Keep dreaming though. I'm sure if Bill Self was busted for some violation, you guys would find a way to blame Roy.

    Are you kidding me? This is NOTHING compared to what they did up in Chapel Hill! According to A LOT of people on here, the UNC scandal was/is the WORST SCANDAL IN THE HISTORY OF COLLEGE ATHLETICS. And I'm not going to waste my time looking back through 12 months of archives, but that has absolutely been said on here.

    And this is not good news for anyone. I know you ABCers are so tickled to see peoples lives get ruined, but it is never good news to see something like this happen. As much as I detest the way a lot of the NCSU fans have acted over the past year, I would NEVER wish this upon their program. This is a game after all, and it stinks to have to go through this.

    I'm praying the NCAA doesn't issue the death penalty to the U....that would really mess up the ACC.

    If Amato was still at State, I'd be scared at what we might learn about his program.

    Since Sidney was at State for the last five years, and TOB is now entering his fifth year at State, I feel pretty doggone safe about my Wolfpack.

    GO PACK!!!

    Butch was there until 2000. This booster is talking about 2001-present.

    You people can't even admit even the most fundamental truths about Carolina, can you?

    Why, dumb azz? Really...why?

    THANK YOU!!! I could not have said it better. This cat is more of a UNC fan than DOOK it seems.

    "intercollegiate football and basketball simply cannot continue down their current paths that will ultimately destroy intercollegiate athletics as we have know them for decades." - Objective Scientist

    The path these sports are on is the same one they have been treading for 100 years. Cheating, benefits for athletes, athletes dumb as rocks or just not bothering to attend classes - this has been part and parcel of intercollegiate sports from day one. Well, probably day two, and started by the school that lost on day one.

    This is the norm, not the exception.

    Why would that be??? I am a UNC fan and it is not great news to me. I would be a little nervous if i was a fan of another ACC school. The HEELS YELLOW JACKETS AND NOW THE HURRICANES. Watch out the NCAA is coming after you.

    Doesn't sound good for Miami at all. I don't think they give Miami the death penalty but the sanctions could be epic.
