A former Miami football booster told the Miami Herald that the Hurricanes' program is guilty of major NCAA violations involving over 100 former players.
Nevin Shapiro told the Herald that he is putting all the allegations in a book titled "The Real U: 2001 to 2010. Inside the Eye of the Hurricane."
"I want to make the average fan aware of what really exists under that uniform," Shapiro told the newspaper. "They might be great players, but they're certainly not great people."
Shapiro told the paper he feels abandoned by several former Hurricanes standouts, including Bears receiver Devin Hester.
"Once the players became pros, they turned their back on me. It made me feel like a used friend," Shapiro was quoted as saying.
My take: In addition to being hurt, Shapiro is clearly desperate for money, to repay his debts, since he's facing a lengthy prison sentence for allegedly running a Ponzi scheme.
