The nearly two year drama involving the NCAA's investigation of the University of Miami stemming from allegations made by convicted Ponzi schemer Nevin Shapiro may soon be coming to an end. According to the Associated Press, sources say the NCAA is close to wrapping up its investigation and may present the university with its Notice of Allegations sometime early next week.
The AP reports NCAA investigators will hold meetings with people believed to have committed infractions as early as Monday, which would signal the near completion of the investigation.
Once the university receives the NOA, it has ninety days to file a response. Once the committee on infractions reviews the allegations and the response they will finally hand down sanctions.
That could happen as soon as May or June.

According to CansesInsider.com, the NOA is expected to be delivered in 72 hours. Though, because the University is private it can chose what it releases to the public. (What gets leaked is another story).
While, the football program is at the center of the investigation, both the men's and women's basketball teams may also be hit. This is the first time the women's team is said to be involved.
The football team has already sat out what amounts to three post-season games in anticipation of the sanctions, including this year's ACC championship game.
