The little incident at the University of Miami is gaining momentum. It will be huge. Mark that! Likely make the SMU episode look like small potatoes. I am beginning to wonder what role the leadership of the university have in the scandal.
There is a photo circulating that shows this Shapiro character presenting a check to the university with Shalala (apparently salivating over the check), along with basketball coach Frank Haith in attendance. Shalala, as president of the school, should know better than to not look a gift horse in the mouth. She should have looked into the activities of this Nevin Shapiro. It is her job to save the university the embarrassment of such a scandal. She has proven, in the past, to not be the brightest crayon in the box along with having some character issues. This incident just fuels that fire.
Was Shalala just being naive and turning a blind eye to the problem or was she complicit? That is a question that must be looked into. The same questions must be asked of all those in leadership positions (current and former) at the school.
This incident may utterly destroy the Hurricane sports programs.
