Miami allegations? The NCAA allegations include that the University of Miami has a "lack of institutional control," and failed to monitor conduct of a rogue booster. Miami has 90 days to respond.
Coral Gables, Fla.
And now, the Hurricanes have 90 days to prepare their rebuttal — or harsh penalties might await.
With Miami President Donna Shalala firing back at the governing body of college athletics for the second time in as many days, the Hurricanes got their long-awaited notice of allegations on Tuesday, the worst charge being that the school failed to monitor conduct of a rogue booster who provided cash, gifts and other items to players on the football and men's basketball teams.
"We deeply regret any violations," Shalala wrote in the university's response, "but we have suffered enough."
The NCAA did not comment Tuesday, one day after it revealed it was erasing some elements of its case against Miami because the information was obtained through an alliance forged with Maria Elena Perez, the attorney for former booster and convicted felon Nevin Shapiro, whose claims are at the center of this scandal.
