Recall back in August when it looked like a tiny Ponzi schemer would derail college football. This was long before Jerry Sandusky, when we were all so innocent and frolicked in Happy Valley, and all of that. Nevin Shapiro, the Ponzi schemer in question, wishes we wouldn't forget him.
Here's Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, with Shapiro's dispatches in quotes:
"The public is going to hate me worse in the next coming months," Shapiro, serving a 20-year sentence for a Ponzi scheme, wrote in numerous e-mails over the past few months. "It's going to be severe and catastrophic. My feelings are getting inflamed and I'm going to pop off pretty soon with regards to them and the NCAA. I'm coming for them both [UM and former players] and I'm going to be successful.
"I'm taking that program down to Chinatown and the former players and links to that program. Why? Because the U.S. government lined up 47 former players to testify against me in open court if I went to trial. That in itself is motivation to shove it up their collective [butts]."
"Down to Chinatown?" Is that some of the prison slang they're using now? Poor guy.
