The beacon of integrity and justice that is the NCAA fessed up to totally botching their investigation into the University of Miami and Nevin Shapiro Wednesday.  How bad is it for the NCAA?  They announced an investigation into their own investigation of Miami with embattled president Mark Emmert saying he was "angered" and "saddened" at the embarrassing events.  For once the NCAA had to publicly admit to their own hypocrisy and asininity.  The facade of amateurism disguising the big business that is the NCAA is such an obvious sham it's not even up for debate anymore.  From Penn State to Miami to cream cheese violations to everyone getting rich but the athletes, the organization is a joke that makes FIFA look semi-legitimate.  The NCAA makes its own rules, selectively enforces them, and can't even get that right. In the wake of those Miami developments, it was so awesome to see people who cover college athletics for a living pour gasoline on the burning couch fire that is the NCAA's inept establishment.  As always, these are Real Tweets from Real People... One can only recommend the death penalty for the NCAA in this case. — edsbs (@edsbs) January 23, 2013 NCAA hasmade a mockery of their investigation of Miami - this is unreal ! — Dick Vitale (@DickieV) January 23, 2013 It's a good thing no one at the NCAA has ever been sanctimonious or holier-than-thou. Otherwise, they'd really be getting destroyed. — Andy Staples (@Andy_Staples) January 23, 2013 Still waiting for NCAA to declare itself ineligible, then seek reinstatementafter the long, slow investigation. — Jay Bilas (@JayBilas) January 23, 2013 Go home, NCAA. You're drunk. — Adam Kramer (@KegsnEggs) January 23, 2013 So the players don't get paid but Mark Emmert does? — Bobby Big Wheel (@BobbyBigWheel) January 23, 2013 The NCAA isn't just policing amateurs.. apparently it's being run by them too. — Bruce Feldman (@BFeldmanCBS) January 23, 2013 Forthcoming post on NCAA will be titled, simply, BRAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHM — Holly Anderson (@SIHolly) January 23, 2013 Mack Brown recruited the NCAA enforcement staff as a safety. — Mark Ennis (@Mengus22) January 23, 2013 Good day for Miami, brutally embarrassing day for NCAA & a devastating day for Nevin Shapiro who hoped to bring down a program out of spite. — Desmond Howard (@DesmondHoward) January 23, 2013 Miami got victories against the NCAA and Duke in the same day. AMERICA LOVES YOU, MIAMI. — Michael Rosenberg (@Rosenberg_Mike) January 24, 2013 sorry, but you're not gonna convince me the world leader in exploiting unpaid labor cares about being credible. no chance. — Bomani Jones (@bomani_jones) January 23, 2013 So do NCAA employees now have the ability to transfer to other organizations without sitting out a year? — Barrett Sallee (@BarrettSallee) January 23, 2013 NCAA investigating NCAA's investigation of an NCAA school? It's "Inception" — Brett McMurphy (@McMurphyESPN) January 23, 2013 Direct Message to Mark Emmert: Good job, good effort. But who exactly is going to buy you out? You have to plan these things. — Fake Dan Beebe (@DanBeebe) January 23, 2013
