Le Batard weighs in on Miami Hurricanes scandal
Miami Herald columnist Dan Le Batard joined the show to talk about the Miami Hurricanes scandal.
Dan asked Le Batard his first thought when he heard about the Yahoo story. “The University of Miami doesn’t cheat well,” Le Batard said
Le Batard said that he had heard of booster Nevin Shapiro, but didn’t think he was a big part of the program.
Le Batard said the key issue moving forward is whether they can link the booster to authority figures at Miami. That’s what could sink the Hurricanes program.
Overall, Le Batard thinks we’re fighting an uphill battle when it comes to fighting issues in college football. “We’re basically trying to police the drug trade with a mall cop,” Le Batard said.
Le Batard said that the expanding media plays a role here. “This isn’t new,” Le Batard said. “We’re just recycling the same story over and over again.”
