Lawyer For Mizzou's Haith Disputes NCAA Allegations Report

Attorney Michael Buckner says whoever told CBSSports.com on Monday that Haith could be charged with unethical conduct and failure to promote an atmosphere of compliance at the University of Miami violated NCAA's confidentiality rules.

Buckner also says he hasn't heard any word from the NCAA on whether Haith is going to be disciplined.
