Yep, it’s officially the offseason, where suspensions and arrests begin to congeal into one category.

The latest player to be hit with a suspension for breaking team rules is UConn safety Jerome Junior. The school announced today that Junior will miss the entire 2012 season, and that Junior is currently not enrolled in school, nor will he be enrolled in the fall.

Junior started 11 games for UConn last year, sitting out one game for violation of team policies. He was fourth on the team with 60 tackles.

Sounds like Junior can kiss his days with the Huskies goodbye.

Here’s what UConn coach Paul Pasqualoni had to say, courtesy of Desmond Conner at the Hartford Courant.

“Yeah, the message is that we have program policies, we have a very, very high level of expectation of our players in many areas and one of those areas is behavior – whether…

The Miami scandal involving former booster Nevin Shapiro has been dormant from headline news for a few months, but Shapiro’s allegations that he provided impermissible benefits to UM players, as well as his involvement in a Ponzi scheme, will be revisited tonight.

CNBC’s “American Greed” will profile Shapiro tonight at 10 p.m. ET in an episode titled “Major League Fraud.” You can see a preview of the segment HERE.

Shapiro was jailed after swindling investors out of nearly $80 million in a Ponzi scheme. While in jail, Shapiro spilled the alleged beans to Yahoo! Sp0rts reporter Charles Robinson over “millions of dollars” in impermissible benefits he said he provided to over 70 current and former Miami players.

The NCAA is currently investigating the allegations, although no timetable has been set for any sort of resolution to the matter. Because the investigation is ongoing, Miami cannot comment on it.

As we noted a little while ago, CNBC’s “American Greed” profiled in length former Miami booster Nevin Shapiro and his nearly $1 billion Ponzi scheme.

The show also touched on, although much less extensively, Shapiro’s accusations that he provided Miami student-athletes with impermissible benefits that violated NCAA rules.

Shapiro was not featured directly in the hour-long special, but in emails to “American Greed”, he answered questions about his Ponzi scheme and his relationship with the University of Miami.

Even behind bars and a computer, it’s clear Shapiro still has a cockiness about him that reflects his current situation.

“You’ll need eight documentaries to film this story” Shapiro wrote in an email to CNBC.

“He was a small guy who didn’t come from money. So he tried to prove himself,” said attorney Linda Jackson, who represents one of Shapiro’s investors.

Shapiro’s story is a fascinating one. Based on his ability to swindle…
