This past weeks knowledge of the NCAA stating that Shapiro invested $170,000 in a scandal to help Miami secure top talents is a far cry from what Yahoo Sports reporter Charles Robinson came out with in his story when he wrote that Shapiro gave millions to former players in efforts to try and help build the program. I find it funny that reporters in today's society can write and discuss whatever they feel regardless of the damages that may follow. I'm not ranting and raving for Robinson's head, he is a very established reporter and spent quite a lot of time building this story; however, it is intriguing that all of this evidence he had to prove his points could not be discovered by the NCAA even after a 2 1/2 year investigation/ "witch hunt".
With that being said, I do believe that Miami should focus on Yahoo Sports once the NCAA comes to their decision because its time that a program finally steps up to defend their image. It is unfair to the players, coaches, and fans when stories like these break because when it comes to the media, the people usually listen to what they hear and never get to see the facts of the situation. In Miami's case, they got lucky that the NCAA got caught dipping their hands into the jar, a habit that has be long overdue of being discovered. I hope that Miami uses this opportunity to stand strong and defend their image not only for the proud U supporters, but for all college teams across the country. Kinda ironic to think that they would be the ones to be in a position to do such a thing.
