Speaking for the first time since the Miami football players were accused by the Ponzi Schemer of getting cash, prostitutes, and gifts from him the ex booster, and the athletic director Shawn Eichorst has vowed on Thursday that “a better day” can come for the Hurricanes. Some of the players had also ended their silence to tell everyone that the team is really hurting from these allegations. These messages had come as the attorney for Nevin Shapiro who is a convicted Ponzi scheme architect had defended her clients accusations that he had funded the wild lifestyle of many players of the Hurricanes.

In a recent statement Eichorst had said that the subjects of the NCAA and the university investigation had their unconditional support. He had urged a skeptical fan base to keep their wits about them and be patient as the process was carried on quietly for a good five months prior to busting things on to the media when Shapiro’s claims went public via Yahoo! Sports. Football lines
Eichorst Wrote “There are tough times ahead, challenges to overcome and serious decisions to be made, but we will be left standing and we will be stronger as a result,” “I understand there are unanswered questions, concerns and frustration by many but this athletic department will be defined now and in the future, by our core values, our integrity and our commitment to excellence, and by nothing else.”
Even Shapiro’s lawyer Mari Elena Perez who is a proud University of Miami graduate and who proudly displays her diploma in her office said that she does agree with Eichorst that the Hurricanes will be left standing after the process. Football betting lines
Perez said “I think there will be a football program after this,” “If they shut down this football program, too many people will lose too much money.”
However Perez defended her client saying that the allegations made were not false and there could be more to this story. Shapiro who is serving a 20 year prison sentence for a $930 million Ponzi scheme is now aware of the fallout from his claims that he made to Yahoo! Sports.
Perez said “I believe inevitably there will be more,” “Whether that comes from Nevin or from outside sources who have additional information about this, I can’t tell you. But I believe that there will be more.”
