Remember that Nevin Shapiro guy, booster-Ponzi Schemer-convicted felon Nevin Shapiro that financed Miami athletics for a number of years? Well he’s back, sort of, and causing more problems.
Charles Robinson is a Yahoo! Sports investigative reporter who broke the newest story of improper benefits in big-time collegiate athletics when he detailed the exploits of convicted Ponzi schemer (and former Miami Hurricanes booster) Nevin Shapiro.
From afar, it would appear, as Fox Sports national columnist Jason Whitlock likes to say, that Robinson “did the damn thing.”
A University of Miami booster, incarcerated for his role in a $930 million Ponzi scheme, has told Yahoo! Sports he provided thousands of impermissible benefits to at least 72 athletes from 2002 through 2010.
That sure feels like the damn thang got diddy did.
But wait! Whitlock, in a column published Wednesday, says that, no, the dern diddly did not get Dirk Diggled.
Did Either ESPN Or The Dan Patrick Show Get Fooled By A Luther Campbell Impersonator This Morning? (Update: The Answer Is No)

It’s one thing to be compared to one of the most famous terrorists of all-time…it’s another to have that comparison come from the man you modeled your lifestyle (at least, your involvement with Miami athletics) after.
Luther Campbell of the popular and controversial ’80s hip hop group 2 Live Crew gained some college football fame for his association with Miami football during that program’s national ascension. He doesn’t however, like being associated with a disgraced booster who claims he took after Campbell.
