    Auburn problems on Realsports

    If this is legit it looks bad for Auburn Football. That is if the NCAA takes action.

    Re: Auburn problems on Realsports

    I hope that article gets going on its own feet before it gets shot down. Somehow I think it will get shot down before it gains any momentum.


    Good times on Hawkeyenation.com after the 2010 Wisconsin Game!

    He won't. If there's anything we know about the NCAA its nothing will come from this.

    This site does not look legit at all. Look at the image with Kramer and the player..an awful photoshop job. I could recreate the same thing, change the names and make it about any school in less than an hour.

    Re: Auburn problems on Realsports

    Great comment on that article-
    Anyone who thinks Auburn and Ohio State are the only 2 schools doing this is smoking the funny grass. Oklahoma, Texas, LSU, Florida are all involved in these things.
    And no one should ever confuse players at these schools as “student” athletes. These guys don’t go to class yet somehow magically pass their classload and are able to maintain eligibility. Someone should requisition their classwork. Bet you find it is worth about as much as the Charmin I’ve already used.

    Reddick was in the high school class of '02, and Rhoads only worked at Auburn for the one year directly before coming to ISU, so he is completely clean.

    It's SportsbyBrooks. He's pretty well known.

    Also, he is transcribing an episode of RealSports on HBO. Poor looking website or not, the interview is real.

    Maybe actually read the article. The author transcribed the interview on a Real Sports special on the topic.

    The SEC has always paid the best salaries. Not that the Big 12 south was terribly far behind but still.

    I read the article. Having never been to his site and seeing a tabloid style image at the top makes it look phony to me. Maybe it's a legit story, maybe not.

    Again, it's SportsbyBrooks. He's been around a while, and his website has always looked like crap. I can understand how you might think otherwise, but he's a pretty well thought of blogger. Cited on Mike & Mike and SVP numerous times. He's got a good reputation.

    LINK Paul Finebaum Radio Network LINK On the weekend that Chizic left ISU, I listened to a replay of a program where a Auburn player, while in the athletic offices, was upset about where his money was. It is there in Finebaums's archives. I listen to Finebaum's interview of DM Rag's Sean Keeler over Chizic's time at ISU, before Auburn fans had found out. I went to his archives to listen to before that weekend and after that weekend to see how auburn fans were taking the announcement. The story of paid auburn players was in one of the hours either on Friday before or Monday after Chizic's announcement, but it should still be there.

    Again, it isn't the blog's story at all. It's Real Sports' story and is legit.
