The NCAA enforcement staff’s response to Miami’s move to dismiss the charges against it in the Nevin Shapiro mess is in. It’s not impressed.
Portions of the contents of the enforcement department’s 42-page response to the NCAA infractions committee were relayed to CBSSports.com. That response followed Miami’s motion to the infractions committee to drop the case on March 29. Enforcement’s response is signed by interim director Jon Duncan.
The first sentence of the enforcement response reads: “From the enforcement’s staff perspective the motion to dismiss by the institution and involved individuals are attempts to deflect attention from the significant allegations that remain in the case.”
Is Shapiro’s “self-corroboration” (as Miami describes it) an attention deflector or a significant allegation? Guess it depends on which side of the fence you’re standing. Which is kind of the essence of the problem here, no?
