JACK'S SMACK: NCAA investigation into Miami is 2.5 years of nothing

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The largest hypocritical organization in America has done it again.

The NCAA spent over 800 days and 2 1/2 years investigating the University of Miami. The verdict – basically nothing.

Miami football program will lose some scholarships. There's no way they're going to screw around with that football program which is undefeated and one of the best teams in the country.

Money is too big for college football to nail the "U" at this time.

This investigation started with the football program and then the Gestapo started poking around and thought it had discovered some stuff on basketball coach Frank Haith and his assistant coaches when Haith was at Miami.

Same old tired, violations, like a failure to monitor an atmosphere of compliance.

In most cases, these violations involve assistant coaches. It happens everywhere. Minor stuff for the most part.

Here's where it gets tricky.

A convicted felon by the name of Nevin Shapiro tried to nail Haith for some hush money involving a former Miami player.

The booster, who is locked up now, claimed Haith made a $10,000 dollar payment to the family of a former Miami player.

Haith screwed up by not blowing the whistle on this guy at the time.

Haith claimed his innocence all along, and vehemently denied handing any money under the table to this crook. And sure enough, Haith was found not guilty.

NCAA loves to drag you through the mud, destroy your recruiting base and then slap you on the wrist with minor violations.

The NCAA needs to go away in the dark of the night, the same way this gutless organization disappeared from Kansas City 14 years ago.

That's Jack's Smack.
