“The University of Miami, as an institution of higher learning, is a leader in exploration, achievement and excellence and we will work hard to do our part to live up to that standard.”
– UM athletic director Shawn Eichorst
My mother always taught me not to kick a man while he’s down.
Today, I disregard her advice. Here’s hoping she doesn’t mind. Plus it’s the University of Miami, so who gives a shit.
Upon hearing the news that one of Tampa’s premiere high school football coaches was allegedly linked to Nevin Shapiro and the University of Miami scandal, I scoured the web to find out more.
Suffice to say Plant High’s Coach Robert Weiner won’t be the only name dragged through the mud as the investigation continues. Plenty more ugliness will surface which once again reminds us a) how the NCAA has absolutely no control over its universities or college athletes b) how much money is actually involved in college football and c) the extent some people will go to win.
But enough about Miami. They’ll get theirs if the NCAA has any cojones at all… which means Miami probably won’t get theirs.
Upon reading about the “Weiner allegations,” I stumbled upon some mug shots of recently arrested Hillsborough County residents, who obviously weren’t too happy about being taken downtown, not that anyone ever is.
So, to honor the sinking ship that is the University of Miami’s football program, I hereby present the Nevin Shapiro honorary mugshot reel.
Remember, readers. Always obey the law. And if you’re a high profile college athlete, please have enough sense to avoid getting your picture taken with hookers on some shady character’s boat. In fact, it’s probably best to avoid shady characters and hookers altogether. If you do get caught, try not to let the mascara run.

Mom is gonna be SO pissed when she finds out I totaled her Prius.
You can almost hear the whimpering.
Nobody likes to see a grown man cry…. Except in this picture, which is pretty damn funny.
Obviously mourning the loss of her comb
How can a balding woman have so much hair?
I’m just gonna let you guys go ahead and come up with a caption to this one.
How many Rush albums do you think this guy owns?
At least the jumpsuit matches her hair.
You’d think being Alanis Morrisette’s dad would count for something. No way they would have taken this guy in if Jagged Little Pill were still on the charts.
All I want for bail is my two front teeth
Here’s hoping I am never THIS &#%@ed up
This guy is so trashed, they needed to hold his head up for the photo. Any resemblance to Edgerring James is clearly coincidental.
