The NCAA investigates its own investigation, JaMarcus Russell wants to ditch the bust label, Tim Brown backs off his comments on Bill Callahan - kind of, Pelicans, Chief Keef gets paid & A$AP Rocky has the No. 1 record in the country.
The Miami Hurricanes may have dodged one since the NCAA found issues with its own investigation into the Miami athletic program. Apparently former enforcement staff members for the NCAA worked with Nevin Shapiro's attorney to improperly obtain information through a bankruptcy case that didn't involve the NCAA. It's going to take an external review before we know how this story ends for Miami.
Tim Reynolds from the Associated Press and CBSSports.com's Bruce Feldman go in on this:
In short, the NCAA says everything it got from Shapiro's bankruptcy case, it shouldn't have gotten. Huge holes to plug now.— Tim Reynolds (@ByTimReynolds) January 23, 2013
This is bad for Miami in that it's more time. This is good for Miami in that this NOA easily could likely look like Swiss cheese soon.— Tim Reynolds (@ByTimReynolds) January 23, 2013
Emmert: "In my two-and-a-half-years, I've certainly never seen anything like this. And don't want to see it again."— Tim Reynolds (@ByTimReynolds) January 23, 2013
Emmert won't even commit to Miami investigation absolutely going forward. "This is a shocking affair."— Tim Reynolds (@ByTimReynolds) January 23, 2013
The NCAA isn't just policing amateurs.. apparently it's being run by them too.— Bruce Feldman (@BFeldmanCBS) January 23, 2013
How has Emmert only recently have found out abt this? This stuff has been out there for 5 months: cbsprt.co/P7Hejz— Bruce Feldman (@BFeldmanCBS) January 23, 2013
JaMarcus Russell doesn't want to be remembered as a bust, so he's going to attempt a comeback to the NFL after missing three seasons. We know Russell is an easy punchline, being overweight and out of shape, the codeine thing, but Russell could have the ultimate redemption story. Don't sleep on the possibility, either.
