Former Miami booster Nevin Shapiro has made shocking revelations regarding breaking the NCAA rules by players and trainers at the University of Miami between 2002 and 2010. Even equipment managers were involved in scandalous practices, according to Miami booster Nevin Shapiro who serves a 20-year sentence behind bars on charges of securities fraud.
Readers who closely follow NCAA are not surprised there is corruption in college football but former Miami booster Nevin Shapiro revealed a huge scheme for putting bounties on particular players like former Florida Gators quarterback Tim Tebow, while a three-year standing bounty on Chris Rix, former Seminoles quarterback, was in place between 2002 and 2004.
Shapiro was ready to pay $5,000 to any player who is able to force Rix out of play. He urged people interested in his claims to watch the taped games where Rix was involved and see how many big hits he suffered during play. According to him, Jon Vilma almost managed to kill Rix while trying to get the $5,000 cash reward.
Shapiro calls this bad practice “hit of the game” or “big plays”, and a couple of former Miami football players already confirmed he is telling the truth. In fact, such corruption scandals erupt periodically in all sports, including non-collective ones. It is not unusual that someone like Shapiro managed to corrupt the college football for so long without being caught, pundits comment.
