The NCAA has said on Wednesday that it is now investigating the relationship that the Ponzi scheme artist and the University of Miami had for five months and if the allegations are true they will show that some real change is necessary in the way college sports are handled. Odds

The president of the NCAA Mark Emmert has said on Wednesday in a recent radio interview that “We were well aware of it and weren’t surprised by the sensational media coverage. We’ve been on top of it for a while, gathering information and collecting data,” “Mike and Mike in the Morning.”

According to Emmert the typical investigations can take up to seven months for it to complete. The former booster Nevin Shapiro who was serving a 20 year sentence in federal prison has claimed that he treated players to nightclubs, gifts, cars and sex parities. He said that he was providing these players with improper benefits… there were as many as 72 football players from the University in between 2002 and 2010 whom he had given benefits to. Scores

In a recent statement Emmert said “If the assertions are true, the alleged conduct at the University of Miami is an illustration of the need for serious and fundamental change in many critical aspects of college sports,”

The NCAA source has told ESPN’s Pat Forde that all the penalties are now on the table which includes the death penalty which means that they could shutdown the University’s football program for a year. Back in 2003 Miami’s baseball team was also put on probation but the schools that have repeated violators are eligible for the death penalty according to the source. The death penalty has been issued one other time by the NCAA in football to SMU back in 1987. Las Vegas odds

Al Goldon the first year Miami coach has said “I would caution you not to jump to that,” “That’s a big jump.”

Golden said “Everybody is practicing,” “If it is determined somebody broke rules, then certainly they’ll be first dealt with. … As we get ready for Maryland, hopefully we’ll swiftly learn if errors were made. If there are guys that are going to have to sit out games, we’ll adjust our practice accordingly.

He added “We were ready for a lot of things in preseason camp, this was not one of them,” “We’ll manage it.”
