On Wednesday, I asked the NCAA for a response to Miami president Donna Shalala's statement before I wrote this piece. On Thursday morning, the NCAA sent me the following response from Bob Williams, vice president of communications:
Like any investigative process, the NCAA enforcement team routinely makes credibility determinations regarding testimony and other data or information. Beyond the issues subject to the Cadwalder investigation and report, we do not intend to comment on the specifics of the evidence in the Miami case.
The NCAA Committee on Infractions, an independent membership committee, will review the case and evidence and make ultimate determinations on how the case will move forward.
