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.''

The best part of this is that Tally doesn't understand how many levels he is being punked on

CS = BORING, CS leader= slightly higher on the ladder than Shapiro but not by much!

Really! I know!

The phrase.."you can beat the rap, but you can't beat the ride..." comes to mind. If the Atty Gen investigates and uncovers more procedural misdeeds, but finds no law was broken... the NCAA beat the rap....the they will be screwed by the "ride" or the fact that they are even being investigated for potential criminal activity and fraud. The real dirt (illegal or simply grossly unethical) will come out and could damage them beyond reproach. They'd be wise to settle (the arrogant btards.)

The NCAA thinks it can do whatever it wants, NCAA, national communistic athletic assoc. or,ass. Howeverone what's to put it. They have damaged the good name of the university, both academically and athleticly and they should be sued for it.
Go Canes on your first ACC Basketball Championship, haven't seen this this much support got Canes basketball since Leonard Hamilton and his Canes won the Big East. Next is football, Go Canes!!!
