The allegations involed in the booster wrong doings at the University of Miami (FL) have been spectacular to read. The level of blatant NCAA rule breaking was astounding and the possiblity of the "death penalty" certainly seems realistic. If you are a fan of ESPN's 30 for 30 documentaries, the SMU "Pony Exce$$" seems eerily replayed at "The U" (which was also a great period piece). http://sports.yahoo.com/investigati...miami_booster_details_illicit_benefits_081611 Bridging this back to hockey, what will the impact of the fallout of this be for NCAA hockey and the already contested North American feeder system to the NHL? With Paul Kelly's recent rantings and public hints of CHL payolla, how can College Hockey Inc. attempt to disassociate itself from what's happening down in Miami? Will this have a trickle effect to the recruiting war with the CHL? I'm thinking it's time for Kelly to take a sabbatical from the press and just keep quiet. It's becoming very obvious that the altar of amateurism and the "student athlete" in the NCAA has become a thing of the past and that continuing to promote NCAA hockey as some purist activity of higher learning is becoming a hypocritical farce. It'll be interesting to see if Branch takes a cheap shot with all going on at "The U".
