They have to imo. If schools like Ohio State and Auburn cheat their asses of for recruits, then Clemson has to. Every year like clockwork they land 5* kids they have no business landing. Every year. Makes no sense.
this should end well.

It seems like every year some Clemson recruit is caught huge money wad, and Clemson fans come on saying it was his parents or some uncle or aunts money.
and a [coke]
Why else you think they landed (4) 5* for the 2010 class? I was with Rivals on that cycle so it was 4 over there (Mike Bellamy(4* on 247), Sammy Watkins, Tony Steward and Stephone Anthony).
Teams that win a title still don't land (4) 5* the next recruiting cycle.
Yea, they are cheating. I'm 100000000% certain of it. Only a matter of time tho.
You forget to name the other 115+ D1 programs. Everybody outside of Ann Arbor cheats, how else could they possibly compete with the Wolverines?
Good question, looks like it's just going to be Michigan and Bama at the top.
Michigan has never, not ONE time had any sort of sanction from the NCAA for recruiting. Even under that slick snake-oil DickWad coaching. Only NCAA sanctions ever against Michigan was for stretching. Thanks for changing the subject though.
Back to Clemson though....as the FSU poster pointed out...how the HELL do they land FOUR 5* recruits in one class?
That is USC territory...and well we all know USC cheats (as per the NCAA) in recruiting and well even if they didn't cheat they should still be able to get 5*'s like clockwork- they are fvcking USC- not Clemson.
USC is a blue blood program. Clemson is not even a has-been like Minnesota, a Johnny Come Lately like Miami or FSU - they are a never fvcking was.
Is Michael Jordan black ?
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
Fast forward to the 1:20 mark and listen to him talk about turning pro.
Clemson TE Dwayne Allen talks to the media after Clemson's loss in the 2012 Orange Bowl.

he acts white, heard he's very cheap as well, and also heard he's kind of an asshole...you sure he's not jewish?
If you could please point me to anytime the NCAA concluded or even alluded to the idea that USC(in its history) cheated in recruiting, I would very much like it. As a UCLA alum, I would love to have something to throw in the face of Trojan fans. Before making such comments you should probably have a clue what they received sanctions for vis a vis Reggie Bush.
Wow....this kid just flat out admitted it. Holy shit.
NCAA is a joke.
Yea, just basicallly stated Clemson is cheating. How the NCAA isn't on their campus now is beyond me.
No shit! Is he really?
And, yes, Clemson cheats....just like every D1 school does.
If EVERY D1 school cheated they'd be landing four and five 5* kids in ONE class like Clemson is. Even Auburn didn't pull that shit off the following class when they won a National Title.
A school like Clemson doing that sticks out like a sore fvcking thumb.
one of our local bloggers that has a popular website in SC is investigating Clemson putting up Sammy Watkin's family in a hotel for a few months. I know people connected with our program are pretty sure they were throwing around some cash for those Florida kids (watkins, bellamy, steward

So.....they suck at covering it up?
I hate Clemson more than anyone out there, but singling them out is pretty damn funny. To some degree, there is cheating at every school. Clemson just seems to not give a shit about covering it up.
LOL...and I quote "At Clemson, I have more money and more resources than I have ever had in my whole life"...lol...that about says it all doesn't it! But Clemson's not alone...believe that.
Ah yes I forgot about the Watkins deal with his family
I don't normally rag on Michigan fans but this is a terrible thread, it should be locked.

That's kinda lame, investigating and trying to rat out a rivals recruiting practices is lame.
I don't think Clemson is doing something nobody else is.

The blogger is not a USC guy, btw...He has put out some stuff against our school, too.
The Watkins stuff is pretty common knowledge, as far as I know.
Fair enough, I just thought by the way cockengr worded it, it was a USC blogger. My bad.
But yeh I have heard the same thing about Watkins recruitment. His commitment popped out of nowhere, so it really doesn't surprise that there might have been some wrong doing.
I think every school does some sketchy stuff. Some worse then others though.
There probably are a few programs cheating, at least to some degree. Some schools really don't have much to lose and the NCAA won't do much to punish them if caught. If a mediocre team cheats and becomes better then punishing them will just return them to being mediocre. Nothing to lose other than disgracing the program for a few years and maybe losing one season. But on the other hand the team has much to gain by cheating.
