The Miami Herald brings tidings of inappropriate NCAA conduct during the the improper benefits investigation into Miami athletics. No, again. No, again again.

The NCAA investigator who took over the University of Miami case last May attempted, as her fired predecessor did, to use Nevin Shapiro’s attorney to help build a case against Miami – a detail curiously omitted from the NCAA-commissioned report detailing the NCAA’s improper handling of the case [...] Meanwhile, UM also will allege that NCAA investigators lied to interview subjects by claiming that other people interviewed made comments they never made, in order to trick the subjects into revealing incriminating information they otherwise might not have ...
All right, this is where we're finally mad. This is it, and it's that first revelation that did it. We knew the NCAA was hysterically, uproariously inept in its handling of this matter, but now it just seems like it wasn't even trying to be sneaky about it. Take some pride in your work, people. It's called craftsmanship. Luther Campbell is gonna have Mark Emmert's job by the time this runs its course, and we're not saying that would be a bad thing.
