If Craig Robinson and Yahoo! Sports are investigating your college football team, it's probably a bad sign. Robinson has kept a tight lip about his future plans, but it appears the Miami Hurricanes are the next contestants on the Yahoo! investigation show, and it won't be pretty. It's been a slow burn thus far, with NCAA investigators in Coral Gables and a steady trickle of information relating to Nevin Shapiro, the booster reportedly at the center of this mess, but it appears a storm is brewing.
On Tuesday morning, Palm Beach Post Miami reporter Jorge Milan shot a flare up indicating something was coming from Yahoo! "soon."
Expect story from Yahoo! Sports on Shapiro claims soon. I'm told that Yahoo paid Shapiro to discuss the UM situation. Care to deny, Yahoo?
Perhaps hearing the talk around him, Yahoo!'s Charles Robinson sent out a cryptic tweet on Tuesday morning.
Coming up for air soon. Sit tight.
It's never good when Robinson essentially calls his shot. We know he's been working on a story labeled a "10 of 10" on the scandal scale, and this may be it. From all we've heard so far, Shapiro is throwing allegations around at a breakneck pace, though the entirety of his claims is not known ... yet. All that may change if/when Robinson drops his next bomb.
We may not have to wait for long if Tuesday's Twitter message is any indication.
