Here is part of the release from the NCAA (http://www.ncaa.org/wps/wcm/connect/public/ncaa/resources/latest+news/20...).
The NCAA national office has uncovered an issue of improper conduct within its enforcement program that occurred during the University of Miami investigation. Former NCAA enforcement staff members worked with the criminal defense attorney for Nevin Shapiro to improperly obtain information for the purposes of the NCAA investigation through a bankruptcy proceeding that did not involve the NCAA.
As it does not have subpoena power, the NCAA does not have the authority to compel testimony through procedures outside of its enforcement program. Through bankruptcy proceedings, enforcement staff gained information for the investigation that would not have been accessible otherwise.
On Monday CBSSports.com reported, "Ex-Miami assistants to be hit with NCAA's dreaded 10.1s". At the time it seemed like Miami's Notice of Allegations would be delivered soon, but now it will be delayed.
As it relates to the Miami investigation, the NCAA will not move forward with a Notice of Allegations until all the facts surrounding this issue are known.
Who knows what this will mean for Miami, but if I was a 'Canes fan, I'd feel better about the future of the program.
It gets worse. The NCAA actually had the Shapiro attorney on its payroll. "This is obviously a shocking affair, said Emmert.— Stewart Mandel (@slmandel) January 23, 2013
Emmert" "If there is any information that we determine was received improperly" it will be thrown out.— Jorge Milian (@caneswatch) January 23, 2013
In short, the NCAA says everything it got from Shapiro's bankruptcy case, it shouldn't have gotten. Huge holes to plug now.— Tim Reynolds (@ByTimReynolds) January 23, 2013
