Does anyone have a link to the list of teams with or without violations?

Sounds like the NCAA believes it to be true.

So Dez Bryant suspended for rest of 09 season for meetings with Deion Sanders/Agent

These guys openly break NCAA rules and take $$$ from booster and they get 1 game (Other 2 get a bit more)

Sure looks like Miami getting slap on wrist ,,, NCAA will try there best to appease Miami and sweep this under rug

Thanks. Wasn't sure. I had just heard about the suspensions. I didn't see any TV or anything yesterday and was sick and therefore am out of the loop and wasn't sure where this now stood.

That article is a hack job if I've ever seen one. Seriously, it's so slanted that I'm amazed Whitlock was able to stay in his chair. This wouldn't be the first time that Whitlock has tried to call out Robinson for one thing or another.

Robinson explains himself, and defends himself, below. Both Robinson and the host invited Whitlock to join them for a discussion, but he declined. It's about 20 mins but if you have the time and are interested in the topic, it's worth a listen. All of what he says makes sense. He especially takes exception to Whitlock's use of certain racially-tinged terms, and his anger is noticeable:

http://www.61sports.com/topic/play_w...udioId=5447549

It's clear that Robinson and Yahoo are the ones who did their homework and Whitlock is the one with an axe to grind. Robinson spent literally thousands of hours sourcing this story while Whitlock spent a few minutes taking random thoughts and using them to develop theories with no real factual evidence to support them; yet he accuses Robinson of being reckless. Did everything Shapiro says happened, happen? Maybe not. But Whitlock is taking a bit of heat from his peers for this and while he should never be ashamed for voicing his opinion, this is lazy reporting and should be treated as such.

They are really ineffective as a regulatory agency. No wonder this keeps happening. They have a big problem in that they can't use anything from the Yahoo report in their investigation, they have to produce their own sources and own evidence in a fraction of the time.

Nevin is pretty much telling the truth. As HC said, when you have a fine upstanding institution like Yahoo Sports doing their research, I mean, come on.

Whitlock's argument is that since the guy is a con man, he's incapable of being honest about anything. And I'm not even sure if Shapiro is being 100% honest. But Yahoo does have thousands of documents and recordings and photographs to back it up, and if Whitlock wants to refute them he'll need more than just his gut feelings - if he wants to be taken seriously, anyway.

Whitlock is bias anyway

He is one of the most vocal Pay NCAA players and hates the NCAA so he jumps on any story about NCAA rule violations and uses it to bash NCAA and defend players in every situation

As much as I bash The U, they're doing everything right in terms with the NCAA. Basically shutting things down with a possible BCS berth on the line speaks volumes to me.

The NCAA has delivered a new and disturbing ultimatum to numerous former University of Miami football players: Either talk to us or we’ll believe Nevin Shapiro’s claims against you.

The NCAA last week mailed a letter to former players that allegedly committed NCAA violations by accepting gifts from Shapiro, including dinners, prostitutes, trips to nightclubs, cash and other perks. Shapiro told the NCAA that 114 players committed violations; Yahoo previously identified 72 of them.

The letter, which I obtained, gives the players a Friday deadline to speak to the NCAA. What’s surprising is that the NCAA states in the letter that it will conclude the players committed violations if they do not respond.

UM officials were privately hopeful that many of the allegations made against players who left UM several years ago cannot be corroborated. Unless the NCAA is bluffing, it appears it might take Shapiro’s word on these claims unless the players refute them.
well... damn. Safe to say that's one hell of a development.

What a joke. The NCAA is the one with the "lack of institutional control" with them basically paying Uncle Nev to give them info. If they get anything more than what they self imposed, it will be a sick joke.
