Miami fires back at NCAA investigation

Posted: Updated:

Firing back for the first time at the long investigation of her school's athletic department, Miami President Donna Shalala has released a statement saying the Hurricanes "have been wronged" by what she called a flawed NCAA probe.

Shalala says Miami wants a swift resolution - with no additional penalties other than the ones the Hurricanes have already self-imposed, such as two missed bowl games, a missed Atlantic Coast Conference football championship game and scholarship reductions.

Her statement came out a few hours after the NCAA said it would press on with its case against Miami, even after revealing that it was replacing the head of its enforcement department and throwing out all ill-gotten information gleaned from two depositions that could have been very damaging for the Hurricanes.
