So I found this to be rather interesting:
Under bankruptcy law, the trustee can seek to collect payments, cash and gifts such as jewelry and cars that Shapiro says he lavished on dozens of UM players in recent years.
Shapiro ran a 900+ million Ponzi scheme and currently owes 83 million in restitution. It also appears his victims could go after these players for the gifts he gave them or the value of the gifts and since many of those players now cash an NFL paycheck they'd have that money.
I found this interesting since normally the whole "player X took money" is settled as a he said/she said kind of thing. Often times the player is in the NFL and refuses to talk to the NCAA so nothing can really be proven (see the rumors of Holmes taking money). Here though this opens the door for sworn testimony in court as to the exchange of gifts and of course lawyers from the bankruptcy trust actively working to prove the players took gifts (so they can recover it).
If the courts are extracting sworn testimony out of people it could end up being used to nail Miami to the wall. Also might speed up the process. Lawyers going after millions of dollars tend to work faster than the NCAA does.
Edit: The other thing to consider is say you're a former Miami player in the NFL and making 6 million a year. Some lawyers come knocking on your door and go "Hey we can prove you took 100,000 in gifts from Shapiro and we can sue you to get it back." Do you even lawyer up and waste time/money fighting something you have a good chance to lose? Or do you just hand over the 100k in exchange for an agreement they'll never bother you again? If players start doing the latter option that also bones Miami when they go in front of the committee.
