Miami NCAA scandal fallout: What does Shapiro's accusations say about sports culture?

Jailed businessman and University of Miami booster Nevin Shapiro says that he spent millions of dollars lavishing money and other gifts on the school's athletes from 2002 to 2010.

Shapiro says that he gave the players jewelery, meals and that he even paid for prostitutes, gifts that he claims the coaches were aware of the entire time.

BJ Schecter, executive editor for, joins Carol Costello today on American Morning to discuss what these allegations say about the state of Miami Football and to weigh in on the larger problem of potential payoffs with other NCAA teams.
