THE NCAA's home-grown scandal is hitting hard at headquarters. President Mark Emmert announced Monday that Julie Roe Lach, the vice president of enforcement, is leaving and will soon be replaced by private attorney Jonathan Duncan after her role in the botched investigation at the University of Miami. He even suggested the NCAA's board of directors and executive committee could hold him accountable for the mess, and it's not over yet. After releasing a 55-page report detailing how the NCAA violated its own practices and policies by paying the attorney for convicted Ponzi-schemer Nevin Shapiro thousands of dollars to help with the Miami case, Emmert spent more than an hour doing damage control on the latest black eye to hit the organization.

THE NCAA has lifted a recent ban against New Jersey schools being allowed to host tournament games or championships sanctioned by college sports' governing body. The NCAA informed its member schools of the decision in a memo after U.S. District Judge Michael Shipp in Trenton issued a permanent injunction barring New Jersey from offering sports betting in the state. Gov. Chris Christie signed a sports-wagering law last year, but the NCAA and four major sports leagues challenged it. Carol Blazejowski, the associate vice president for university advancement at Montclair State University, said she had received the NCAA memo.

Miami president Donna Shalala did not reveal any names of the players under investigation as she released a video statement yesterday. The booster, convicted Ponzi scheme architect Nevin Shapiro , told Yahoo Sports for an article published last week that 12 current football players and one men's basketball player got money, gifts and other items from him. "We cannot let the actions of some define the many," Shalala said.

Shock was not exactly the public reaction to this week's allegation that University of Miami football players had accepted cash, cars, and prostitutes from a team booster. Hardly a month goes by without some new episode of student athletes behaving badly. The Ohio State team - accused of trading rings, awards, and autographs for expensive tattoos and money - barely had time to serve as football's bad boys before being supplanted by Miami. The allegations against Miami come from a donor to the university who was a frequent guest on the Hurricanes' sidelines, Nevin Shapiro, and who is currently serving 20 years in prison for concocting a $930 million Ponzi scheme.

The sports governing body said former enforcement staff members worked with the criminal defense attorney for former Miami booster and convicted Ponzi scheme architect Nevin Shapiro "to improperly obtain information . . . through a bankruptcy proceeding that did not involve the NCAA.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Al Golden is a lucky man. Not many, if any, big-time college coaches could lose their opener and hear Mike Golic mention the next morning on national television and syndicated radio that the losers deserved "a ton of credit. " A month ago, Golden was the relatively unknown ex-Temple coach taking a big leap up, expected to produce at the University of Miami. Now, Golden is a national figure in his sport, caught in a cross fire that wasn't his doing. If Golden handles it right - and his history says he will handle it right - then his national reputation will soar.
