Miami Hurricanes Trouble Continues
Yahoo's Charles Robinson: Golden's UM staff used right-hand man of Nevin Shapiro - to break NCAA recruiting rules: http://tinyurl.com/cjl68p6

Each violation borderlines a secondary and major violation but altogether it could shut down Miami's football program. This is death-penalty worthy.

" Less than one week after the University of Miami hired Al Golden as coach, members of Golden's coaching staff began using Sean "Pee Wee" Allen – a then-equipment manager and onetime right-hand man of convicted Ponzi schemer Nevin Shapiro – to circumvent NCAA rules in the recruiting of multiple Miami-area players, Yahoo! Sports has learned.

Golden, hired by Miami in mid-December 2010, had direct knowledge of Allen's improper involvement with Miami recruits, according to a former Hurricanes athletic department staffer and federal testimony given by Allen in Shapiro's bankruptcy case. Additionally, multiple sources interviewed by NCAA investigators have told Yahoo! Sports that Allen has become a focal point in the association's probe into Miami athletics. The sources said investigators focused on Allen's role in providing impermissible benefits to Hurricanes players, as well as his contact with Miami recruits."

"Pee wee?" I wonder what my nickname would be.

I'm thinking...Pockets.

Wait... Mr. Pockets.

I think it is the same guy that exposed Nevin Shapiro last year.

So then this incident isn't new?

The last "incident" in the article is from June of 2011, before the Shapiro story broke.
