    Would you please confirm the story which has just been released. Nevin Shapiro a booster for the U of Miami (also known as the U) has ratted out all those Miami players and non Miami players he gave gifts and money to under the table. One of the players never went to Miami but played for Cal Berkely. His last name was Williams. Is this true? and if it is do you see any consequences?

    Since my team got caught cheating and is such a disgrace to the conference and since I spend my life scouring the Internet, fishing for some company for my misery and hoping, hoping, hoping to find something… please, JO, please validate my team and my life by confirming that Cal broke some rule somewhere at some time (and that there will be consequences!). Please, please, please!

    Would you please confirm the story which has just been released. U$C is not able to play a bowl game. They are about to lose many scholarships in the coming years. Is this true? and if it is do you think $C will get caught the next time they’re exposed for cheating?

    MoreSanctions, sadly, the “fishing for some company” and “scouring the Internet” has been going on long before $C was caught cheating. Though it started in 2004 around the time that $C was good BECAUSE of their cheating….what a coincidence!!!

    What, exactly, is your point regarding Cal? The dude steered kids to Miami. Worrell William might have attended a party at his house before he was ever a Cal bear. Noone affiliated with Cal at the time–coach, alumni, player, hydro technician, cheerleader, or maintenance worker–has anything to do with this story.

    But Miami might go down in flames

    Moren is so fixated on pinning something on Cal, I’m surprised she hasn’t gone to Yahoo with a made up story about how her rich daddy (whose basement she lives in) hosted a bunch of cal recruits and paid them off. The definition of delusion!
