Uncle Luke speaks out about Miami & Nevin Shapiro

One of the tidbits to come out of the explosive investigative report by Yahoo! Sports into Miami was that infamous booster Nevin Shapiro thought of himself as, "Little Luke."

The nickname is a reference to Luther Campbell, a rapper and record label owner known for his connection with the Hurricanes during their infamous run as the bad boys of college football during the late 80's and early 90's. "Uncle Luke" as he is better known as, was notorious for being around the program and offering bounties for hits and touchdowns, just as Shapiro did.

You've heard the pundits, you've read the very good columns (here, here and here for example) but Uncle Luke also decided to weigh in on the allegations as well. Writing on his "Luke's Gospel" blog for the Miami New Times, Campbell says - in a not safe for work manner - that Shapiro can go ahead and kiss his butt.

"That punk could never be me," Campbell wrote. "First of all, I have never been a UM booster. I have never given a dime to the school. I have and always will support the players and the program out of civic pride, but I never violated any NCAA rules when I was the team's biggest fan in the '80s.

Miami report fallout
"You can't be me just by reading a Dan Le Batard article in the Miami Herald from 21 years ago alleging I paid players for hits on the field. The NCAA investigated those accusations and found no wrongdoing on my part. This notion that I was paying players is false. It never happened."

So tell us Uncle Luke, how do you really feel about the man who is calling himself a little version of yourself?

"Shapiro is nothing more than a jilted groupie who ------ over a lot people. He is an opportunistic schemer who now wants to play the role of jailhouse snitch. His word isn't worth squat, especially if Yahoo! paid him for the exclusive. Nevin is angry because he couldn't get former players to invest in his Ponzi scheme or come to his rescue when his criminal enterprise was exposed."

Gotcha, we know how you feel now.

LMFAO, like I'm gonna trust a rapper.  Easily one of the least trustworthy segments of society.

And Uncle Luke, when you call someone a snitch, you're saying they're telling the truth.  Way to out yourself.

Nice to see sour grapes from a FREE SHOE UNIVERSITY FSU fan.  They've had more scandals than Jumbo has wins.
