The really good part is watching the desperate acceptance of everything Chizik and Jacobs say, as if they have nothing to lose by coming out and saying, "you know, it's a big program and it's obvious to the whole country that everything was a little out of hand and that we had some shady guys around. Sure some money may have been passed or a grade changed. Shit happens".
Shooting it down is different from "getting out in front."
Also different from what auburn and Chizik actually did.
You do realize that Gene Chizik has around 10 million or so reasons to deny, deny, deny....right?
So there was a release date for this BLOG? That would have helped our AD "get out in front".
Either way... This is a non-issue now, except for our little brother.
Why does AUM care about this issue?
Sometimes the jokes write themselves.
A Michigan buddy of mine at work commented last week about what a slow offseason it had been and how half of Georgia's team had not been arrested yet and a new Auburn cheating scandal had not been reported. I told him to just be patient and that neither could help themselves. Lo and behold, Auburn held true to their form less than a week later. You could set your watch to Auburn cheating scandals these days.
1. Eric Ramsey - Made it up to get Dye. (Nevermind Pat Dye admitted to paying players)
2. Reporter in South Carolina who interviewed Stephen Davis. He quoted Davis as saying he was paid to play at Auburn.
3. Terry Bowden and Paul Davis - He admitted to playing players still on the Dye payroll, Stephen David being one of them. BTW, that is 2 different reporters who quoted the coach and the player that the player was paid to play while Auburn was on probation from the 1992 Sanctions. Davis lied about what Bowden telling him.
4. Andrea Kramer lied on HBO about McClover, Gray, Ramsey, Reddick when she interviewed them and they admmitted it on tape. It was Kramer lying.
5. Selena Roberts lied when Auburn professors told her all about the sociology-gate.
6. Everyone in the Cameron Newton scandal was lying. All the reporters, all the coaches everywhere except Auburn.
7. The teachers in Memphis lied about Jovon Robinson.
8. Selena Roberts lied about the drugs and the felony 4.
9. The ESPN reportes are lying about the drug scandal.
All of these people are lying about Auburn.
BTW, if you didn't keep up with it, reporters have quoted Auburn players who were at Auburn in every year since 1989. Auburn has been CONTINUOUSLY cheating since 1989. And it has been reported by independent media.
But they are all lying.....
Eye-opening post IMO. What a bunch of cheaters. SMH SMD
ESPN writer Shaun Assael addresses Jay Tate's article....lol
"Auburn had a fairly sturdy tent-pole defense to me that it couldn't inform parents because as long as synthetic marijuana was not in its drug testing policy it didn't have the punitive lever to inform parents.
Except now, in a way of attacking me, I find this mystifying, a website seems to be reporting that a couple of parents were told that their kids were using.
So now my head is spinning. Am I not supposed to believe what Auburn tells me? Are parents being selectively told?"
Getchasummathat, Big A.
Auburn has been handing out grades to athletes as far back as 2007, see pic below. Lies all Lies I tell you.

Not true. No one from Auburn said it was.
Future cover for SI about the university of auburn scandal.
Come on, man. Stop being an energy vampire. Auburn said that wasn't true either. Do you really expect them to come out and say that it was all lies if it really wasn't all lies? If Chizik said that he didn't pay players then that should be good enough for everyone. They have nothing to gain by denying these scandals. If they were true then they would release a statement telling us they were true. This should be no different.
I apologize Aubs, not everyone takes your administration at their word like they most certainly should. Smh
I wonder what mal Moore thinks about these latest accusations?
Clay Travis speaks about the barn.
If your average Auburn fan would just admit, "Yes, we cheated our asses off in 2010, but no one is ever going to catch us so it was worth it," I don't think people would really care that much about the cheating. After all, lots of cheating takes place in any underground economy. And an underground economy is exactly what requiring football and men's basketball players to go to college for free creates.
But the Auburn fan base has been so sanctimonious and annoyingly provincial about this whole thing since it started. The average Auburn fan really believes, at least for purposes of public argument, that they've done nothing wrong and that the entire mess surrounding Auburn is based on a media witch hunt.
Again, I'll ask you, of all the programs in America that the media could be obsessed with bringing down, do you really think the media would pick a school in rural Alabama that lots of the nation doesn't even know? I mean, Auburn is probably the only SEC school that the majority of non-Southerners can't even place in the correct state.
Auburn isn't a big enough target for a vast conspiracy to develop around catching the Tigers. The reason the media is there is because there are so many players telling so many different strories about the ways y'all cheated.
The idea that Auburn didn't cheat offends anyone with a brain.
I mean, 2010 Auburn is like the WWE champ who won by knocking out his opponent with a chair while the ref had his back turned. That's fine, no one really argues that WWE champs who win this way should have their titles stripped, but it does make them infinitely less likeable especially when the villain claims that our eyes weren't working, that, no, despite what clearly happened -- a chair to the back -- we're the ones who are mistaken.
This wasn't a clean title.
You're the chair slamming champs.
He's dead. I'm pretty sure he doesn't care.
Lulz @ bama fans quoting Clay Travis.
He died last week. I'm sure if he had a reaction it would be ROLMFAO, stupid barners at it again.
