@Andy_Staples: RT @slmandel: It gets worse. The NCAA actually had the Shapiro attorney on its payroll. "This is obviously a shocking affair, said Emmert.

guess I shouldn't be surprised since they were too damn ignorant to nail Auburn and Cam. I hope Miami and PSU take the NCAA to the woodshed in court.
Folks asking about pics so 1. Near Skagway AK 2. Ketchikan AK 3. Space Needle in Seattle. This summer was a great trip.
The issue stems from improper questions at a bankruptcy hearing. I'm not in any way familiar with bankruptcy procedure, but from what I just gleaned from Google there are restrictions on what can be asked, namely that broad questions outside of "what are your assets" are disallowed.
One of two things probably happened. Either
1) Shapiro's attorney was also secretly working for the NCAA to uncover information from the hearing or
2) Shapiro (who is writing a book) worked with the NCAA to use the hearing to get information disclosed somehow.
My guess is that it's 2, but that is both an ethical violation if the attorney was serving two adverse parties, and there are probably serious legal and ethical issues with how the information was procedurally obtained (we'd need more details). If it were 1, then that's sort of a huge legal no-no that will be very bad for everyone (especially since the NCAA staff are attorneys).
Still, the NCAA is *not* a court of law, and so the rules of evidence that keep such ill-gotten facts out of the judgment don't exist there. It's really impossible to say what the NCAA will do regarding this.
Don't think there really needs to be an organization - just need the conference commissioners and a president to rep each conference and some kind of rep for the small schools and call it a day.

Guess there technically would be an organization, I just think it should consist of the commish and a president from each conference, seems they could effectively run the NCAA.
How does this have anything to do with the NCAA and its ability to hand down sanctions? As Bama fans I am shocked that any of you think the NCAA abilities to prosecute/gather evidence live under the same umbrella as a United States courtroom....it doesn't. The NCAA used a secret witness to condemn Alabama in the 90s. Try to get a Mob boss, or anyone else, convicted on the testimony of a secret witness....it cannot be done. Someone must take the stand, get in the crosshairs, and testify. The NCAA can do whatever it pleases within its laws and regulations to find fact and hand down judgement. If Miami were to take this to US court, and gain judgement, then there is presidence for any other institution to have their case reviewed.

I hear you, but.... "If there is any information that was obtained improperly absoltutley it would be thrown out," Emmert said on the teleconference following the announcement
