Update on Florida Senator Joseph Abruzzo's quest for Attorney General to initiate investigation of NCAA

   I just spoke with Florida Senator Joseph Abruzzo, who asked Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi to launch an investigation "into the National Collegiate Athletic Association's (NCAA) actions during its probe of the University of Miami's athletic program, per a letter dated Feb. 20.

   Abruzzo said he met with Bondi late Thursday afternoon. He said she has gotten a copy of the 52-page report that came out after the NCAA's external review of its own improper conduct. The report details the NCAA's wrongdoings in the Miami investigation. 

  "She just received the internal report that the NCAA president issued,'' Abruzzo said by phone. "They gave me a copy, too.''

   Abruzzo said Bondi wants to review the report before they meet again next week.

   "Then we'll discuss what’s going to occur at that point,'' the senator said. "She understands my concerns and didn’t brush it off by any means. But she wants to completely familiarize herself with it.

    "We'll set a time to meet later in the week.''

    Abruzzo's Feb. 20 letter to Bondi said that "NCAA Enforcement Staff violated its own rules and engaged in corrupt behavior in an attempt to manufacture misdeeds against the University of Miami. In so doing, the NCAA has demonstrated a lack of institutional control and may have engaged in unfair trade practices in violation of Florida's Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act (FDUTPA), Chapter 501, Florida Statues.

   "...I strongly feel that the NCAA's abuse of power and payoffs must be scrutinized to the fullest extent, especially considering the NCAA's role as a regulatory institution of more than 400,000 students across the nation.''

I have two things to say to Miami Canes:
One, give the Cane bball starters a week off.
They are whipped. Give them a lot of rest. Put in the subs for defense in the ACC tournament.

Two: http://youtu.be/m_lZ2qAnWtU

Come back home Calvin
We need your expert opinions about the Canes back on CS
Meet me over there or EOTH so the both of us can copy n paste a bunch of articles or comments
CS & EOTH in the house Calvin

Does anyone know what Eddie Johnson did to be hung out to dry this long?

Red cane u probably won't get that. I still want to know what did G.Paul do? I think Kentucky coach calipari is a scum bag but I his interview yester day on why this Kentucky team is not playing well was stellar. He took the credit for all the underachievements of his squad this year. Whether its a front or not I think this coaching staff could learn some important lesson on accountabilty if they want our players to be accountable and stand up young men. Stop blaming the players and find away to correct our problems.

We need guys like quincy wilson and Michael smith on this defense, but this staff wants to keep going out of state to get defensive players at UM.

Will you jst STFU already Calvin
You have proved over and over that you are an idiot that doesnt know anything about football
Go back to EOTH and hassle those idiots with your ramblings

What ever happened to that insecure CS bimbo Mary, that couldn't get through more than two sentences without saying "my firm?"

F CS i posted first and sent my address to whoever and still didnt get the CS shirt for being first.lol

Calvin who is wilson and smith?

Tallycane you are a moron for even wanting a shirt
Its bloggers like you that we dont want at CS
You should only go there to read my earth shattering Cane news I bring

What up man, i thought that was you when i read you talking bout that 4.1 forty, lol, somebody got dusted. Yeah man, it was all good over at the other spots at one time, but man, i'm not with the silly games some of the people who run these sites like to play and get the bighead and start doing unecessary foolishness, once they start doing that and than lying, man, no need for that crap dawg. It's stupid to try and run a blog and than try and tell a few people what they can say, but than it's obvious they slurpin one or 2 of the other bloggers cause they get a chance to say whatever with nothing being said.

I'm sure my boys still over there holding it down though, they know who they are, but the rest of them fakers, F'em dawg, when i see fake stuff, i'm not gone be around that to long, especially if it comes at me. I like being around real stuff and real people, some take their blogs to serious. I like how many does this over here, manny runs his blog like suge knight ran death row, wasn't trying to be the star of the show like puffy was, suge let the stars be the stars. Some of the ones who have blogs don't understand that.

Football talk is football talk to me man, no matter where i'm talking it, it's always good cause i'm a football man.

Tampa cane... Injustice?

Where else can a kid from the hood grow up and make millions of dollars through hard work and free capitalism?

Lebron, ed reed, gore, and many others woul disagree with your socialist mentality.

Its proof that when the federal gove takes care of the people, the people stop producing...
Go to cuba. Youll see what i mean


The nra? You are a moron.

I suppose younhave a vendetta against steak knives and machetes. Like the one jody arias used against her boyfriend

Socialist goons like you are like leaches.

The smelly skank Mary is caught between Lazs 5th and 6th chin
86 says he is perfect
Scary Mary is in love with him just as he is

tallyCane, this is exactly why goldie looks like a hypocrite and needs to stfu when he starts talking about players needing to be accountable but yet his boy oach OH-NO is sitting at 117th in the nation but somehow goldie keeps making excuses and lying for him but they want to kick ray ray off the team because he admitted he lied, if the defense is ranked in the 50's or higher, than for surely goldie lied to us when he said his boy is one of the best in the nation, right now it's definitely a lie.

A 4.1 forty is nothing when you are as athletic as I am.
I can bench 575 lbs and throw the ball at least 80 yards
I was the first high school football player that the NFL wanted to make eligble for the draft
Instead I decided stealing other peoples work was a better option for me

Calvin who is wilson and smith?

quincy wilson plays safety for university school and is the son of older Cane chad wilson. Michael smith is basically a defensive end at Northwestern that knows how to ball. If you look at some of the out-of-state schalorships that went out, it's no way goldie and crew can justify why none of these 2 have been offered.

Michael Smith sucks
Hes one of the worst players ive ever seen play
I go to every game in the state of Florida so im an expert at judging talent

Send a drone to the NCAA headquarters. Please.

Moron for wanting something with canes one it ha.lol I guess that's why you posting here now. That a@@ must really be hurt.lol

Calvin my cousins played for the West back in the day i normally catch at least two of their games a year. They have some good talent that comes out of their every year.

There is the ignorant a@@"532 again. I wish some of you Internet cowards would come out say that stupid stuff you all right about people in their face. Don't be a coward all your life.lol

Excuse me write.

Separate investigations into an attorney involved in the Miami case and the NCAA as a governing body are in the planning stages. News leaked Friday of a federal court inquiry into the dealings Nevin Shapiro's bankruptcy attorney had with the NCAA.

Federal judge and UM law school grad Federico A. Moreno wants to know if attorney Maria Elena Perez's relationship with the NCAA was ethical, the Associated Press reported.

Joseph Abruzzo, D-Wellington, said he's still working with the attorney general's office on a possible investigation into the NCAA.

It wouldn’t be the only legal challenge the NCAA is facing on the state level. Pennsylvania governor Tom Corbett is suing the governing body over the sanctions handed down involving the Jerry Sandusky case.

He claims the NCAA violated antitrust laws. The NCAA has since filed motions to dismiss the case.

My 4.1 has now officially been changed to a 4.05 forty
Come on all you friends of mine
Stop by CS to say hi to me
We need the hits or else I will force 86 to close down

It is some trash anyway covered up with a couple of photos to make it look like something.

Then why are you begging for a shirt you dont even like?
Forget CS only read the comments I make
Im really the boss of CS

Al Golden is the Head football coach at the University of Miami whether you like him or not.If you are having problem with the Fidel Castros clones of highschool football than maybe you should go out state to recruit. Tampa cane you are wrong. If you start kissing--- You will keep kissing---.People from the hood don't glorify the hood. If you don't want to play by the rules and get treated like premadonnas. The U is not for yoU. Times have change. We have a bunch of knuckleheads leading these kids to other schools because they personnaly have grudge against the man in charge. Is this really going to get the U back to being the U.

BECAUSE WHEN IT COMES TO COACHING DEFENSE HE JUST DUNNO!!! GO CANES 2013 ACC CHAMPS!!

I know a lot of players at The U from school.....the word around campus is that Al Golden is "the man". A few players who I know have both said that AG treats them like they are his own kids.....he disciplines yet punishes when he needs to. They LOVE him, to death as well as the other coaches. They said this years team will excell light years ahead of last years team and that Duke Joihnson is "a running back God".....their words....swear.

Good post canesallnight- -- As for Cs is concerned there a lot of real canes on the site. I like most of them. They have just let a few bad apples taken over the site. As far as the personal
attacks on them it's childish. What you are doing is no better then 86 not controlling the personal attacks on players, coaches and there families on his cane fan site. Please stop and let's talk some canes football .

I think the NCAA's over-zealous prosecution--or is the correct word persecution?--of the U shows just one tiny part of the association's corruption.

The NCAA is, for all practical purposes, a multi-billion-dollar, for-profit corporation that feeds off the nation's post-secondary education system and enjoys a tax-exempt status while doing so.

The association's arbitrary rules-enforcement is even more eyebrow-raising. If it pursued rules violations at all schools the way it's pursuing them at UM, and the way it pursued them at USC, half of its member schools--most of them in the top-ranked 25--would be banned from post-season play.

All of this adds up to needed external investigation and oversight from a powerful legislative or judicial body, and an ultimate overhauling of the NCAA and college sports in general.

In the end, the NCAA has to be got out of the sports business and back into education. It won't be easy because so many at the NCAA are making money from lucrative network contracts, and people who want a lot of money tend to get vicious when someone tries to take their money away.

But it still has to happen because the discussion in college sports has got away from education and is more and more about who's making all the money.

College athletes are graduating and/or leaving college for the pros without having got much in the way of education, and all most people can talk about is whether or not they should get paid.

Imagine that: people going to college without even giving serious thought to education. It's all about whether their teams win and whether they're getting paid.

What a shame, and the NCAA--the National Collegiate ATHLETICS Association--wouldn't want it any other way.

How can NCAA miss a letter it should have given Miami and be in 52 page report, how many more mistakes, deception and cover-ups can Marl, lawyer and NCAA get away with, the lies and deception are a major legal problem in this case.

Jay Bilas is correct, the NCAA is totally out of control, a letter praising a criminal is not smart, and Mark Emmert knew of this, so did lawyer.

Fire Morris. This baseball team has not progressed in over ten years.

Give me 1 good reason why Mimai should not fire Morris.

I'll give you 100 reasons why they should

Its Saturday so you know ill be here all day and night trying to convert everyone into becoming a follower of mine.
I have now been handed the title of THE BOSS OF CS.
You will be in awe of the stories I will be bringing 3 weeks ahead of any other blog
4.05 forty baby

9>5>2 should come over to CS to have that discussion
Although he is a blogger there that uses another ID
TallyCane has never played football in his entire life so ignore that moron
Me on the other hand was the top athlete in the nation that could pick any numbers of schools to play at
4.05 forty baby

I have to agree Calvin. The strength of Butch Davis at Miami and NC was finding stud Defensive talent. I mean look at the first rounder from his NC teams. Goldens weakness is not realizing that Choir Boys ain't gonna cut it when you face the Brawler Teams. They may look good on a poster but aint gonna ever cut it in a game against big nasties. Ask Notre Dame! It takes a different caliber of cat to slap the Saban Gang in the mouth and the Jake O'Donnell's of the world aint it. We should hire Butch as an off site D-Lineman/LB evaluator and recruit those he recommends.

Im sure Butch would come to Miami to just be a recruiting evaluator
No chance D bag
Al should hire me as a recruiter
I know how to evaluate talent far better then Butch Davis does
I ran a 4.05 forty and Butch never found me
I am the king of copy n paste

biondi will do nothing.....the senator is completely wrong....uftp in fal does not apply, not even close.....the players dont love golden in fact duke johnson tweeted when christobal left that he was concerned where the team was heading.....just add eddie johnson the the golden list of casualties.....

Wow you woke this morning and that's all you came up with.lol I wasn't begging for anything i would have actually bought one. Honestly I try to read as much as I can about the canes wherever I can but as over the past year or so cs hasn't had anything worth reading. You have some good pictures though.lol

Now that ive blessed this blog with my opinions the last couple of days its become clear to me that Jimmy Gallo is the biggest idiot on here
He believes a rapist should still be on the team
What a dumb SOB
Be sure of one thing
Jim Gallo will never be allowed to post on my CS

TallyCane has tried begging, kissing up to all us CS bloggers along with thinking he contributes to the blog all to get a darn tshirt instead of buying a Cane shirt to wear.
Go beg on the streets for $ to help by you one and not a CS shirt
You dont deserve one and havent earned it
We dont need bums like you wasting my quality posts with your idiotic posts
Be useful and try to clean that armpit of a city you live in.
Fake Cane fans are pathetic

It's simple defense wins championships. We should go undefeated next year.That is the Cane mentality that is missing around here. All we here is a bunch of excuses on why our players aren't getting it because of youth and inexperience. That is a bunch of bs. These players have been balling since Optimus and now all of a sudden they don't know how to play. So it can only be one thing the scheme. The players don't believe it will work.G.paul and now it looks like EJ will be gone. It looks like we will be inexperienced again. We need as many enforcers as we can get on defense. I believe we will have a good team but championships is what we play for.

Hey everybody, head over to The Space and see the same several dozen pictures that I have used forever. Heck, I have more dated pictures of me sucking up to ballers than anybody. I realize that it's ultimately undermining everything that I am so desperately trying to accomplish but what the hey, it's all I gots.

I blogged all of two or three time on your blog you surely have me mistaken for some one else. Dint like it it because the majority of all of you on the were so far up oh no a@@ I had to get off. It's ironic that you are on another site begging for hits though buster.lol

But Art Kehoe did tell me that some "big things" are going to happen in recruiting. He even guaranteed it. Of course he wouldn't say ANYTHING specific and just speaks in a vague and mystic style. But he IS the greatest Oline coach in the history of the world so we can just ignore that he's basically a fat windbag that yells a lot and just happened to coach the most stacked lines ever. We an also ignore that his coaching resume went off a cliff when the U fired him. Forget all that because he is the most awesomest coach ever. So " trust me on this" the big lumber will fall to the u.

TallyMoron all your doing here is complaining you deserve a CS tshirt
So for someone who only read it once or maybe twice sure seems to get mad at them because they dont value your D bag posts
We all know who you are
Youre the fat slob on the corner asking for change to clean our windows
You might want to take a shower in your spare time
Then again does Tally even have showers?
CS runs your life moron

That's about the size of it. A low budget investigative reporter following the camera trying to get minute with the ballers . A true poll rider that is what you are known for in your city.garbage. What a life you have.lol
