Statement from John Swofford

The ACC has released the following statement from commissioner John Swofford on the NCAA's case against Miami:

"We are supportive of Miami's continued efforts to work with the NCAA on bringing resolution to this case. Miami's cooperation throughout this process should be commended and they have self-imposed significant sanctions. They've been forthright and diligent in their efforts to fully cooperate with the NCAA and it's time for this case to be brought to closure."

It looks like Miami president Donna Shalala has somebody in her corner.
