(The Spread) – Earlier this week, serious allegations were levied against the Miami Hurricanes football program, which could receive college sports' “Death Penalty.”
Yahoo! Sports’ Charles Robinson reported earlier this week that a Miami booster, who was incarcerated for his role in a $930 million Ponzi scheme, that he provided thousands of impermissible benefits to at least 72 athletes from 2002 through 2010.
Nevin Shapiro estimates that he spent millions of dollars to give athletes benefits which included (but not limited to) cash, prostitutes, entertainment in his multimillion-dollar homes and yacht, paid trips to high-end restaurants and nightclubs, jewelry, bounties for on-field play (including those for injuring opposing players), travel and, on one occasion, an abortion.
The NCAA says that it has been investigating these claims for five months and if the allegations are true, it could show the need for “fundamental change” in college sports. Oddsmakers have released prop odds for this situation, including whether or not Miami will receive the “Death Penalty,” which means the Hurricanes would not be able to compete in football for at least one year. It’s the harshest penalty that the NCAA can dole out.
