    Pretty good reason the NCAA was in Coral Gables on Monday.

    Pretty incredible stuff in here from Charles Robinson.

    Yeah, this is pretty damn detailed and full of some wild shit.

    If true -- and it's implicating coaches in football and basketball -- wow.

    Death penalty?

    I'm sure it was all just an innocent misunderstanding.

    Yahoo is the best sports site and at this point I don't even really think it's close. Their stable of writers and reporters consistently does the best work and they clearly put a premium on big investigations, which is awesome to see.

    The sheer amount of time spent in reporting this story -- hundreds, no, thousands of hours -- is staggering. Wish more outlets could make this kind of commitment to investigative journalism.

    I'm sure all Gannett outlets already do. Such a leader in all things journalistic.

    I wonder how ESPN, which gushes over all things U (at least in football) will report this.

    Makes getting free tattoos seem a little less serious.

    Normally I would say no. The NCAA is not going to use the Death Penalty again because it worked TOO well when it was used on SMU.

    However, given the current climate, I'm starting to think that the NCAA may decide to make an example of somebody and Miami would fit the bill.

    It's a big enough name to send shock waves thru the college football world but it's a small private school, not a major state institution with thousands of alumni. It is also not the national power it once was in football (and never has been in hoops).

    Excellent work by Yahoo!, as usual, despite none of the details in the story being the least bit shocking or stunning.
