Total loss of control. I mean auburn wtf are yall doing.
The 2010 national champion Auburn Tigers were gripped by an epidemic of synthetic marijuana use that...
Wow.....the hits keep coming
It was really only a matter of time. I'm actually surprised things are coming to the forefront this soon.
ESPN is an ex Auburn grad with an axe to grind. Move along people.
Could someone provide me a link to their university's public disclosure of student athletes drug tests?
At least the Cam scandal had some merit. This getting sillier by the day
If by sillier you mean rolling on the floor and literally laughing out loud while Auburns name gets slung all through the mud for 2 days Nation wide then yes, it's silly.
Some Auburn players took ESPN out to a seafood dinner and never called her again.
When it rains, it pours. Wow, what a collection of idiots in the AU AD. And they remain in good shape with their employer. Too funny.
"The whole time, I was thinking...they can't do nothing about the spice." - Dakota Mosley, former Auburn TE, after failing seven straight tests for synthentic marijuana.

Telling myself it's not as hard as it seems - Led Zeppelin
Yea. That's what I mean.
It blows my mind that these folks are digging deep to find stuff on us when they could just run headlines about how bad we suck. It's even crazier that auburn fans still get in a tizzy about what's going to happen.
I want it to be true, but this is great either way
I think chizik comes out next and throws Gus under the bus
Auburn is eating itself alive.
Are they worthy of being in the SEC at this point? Send em to the SBC for a few years to learn their lesson
You do realize spice was legal until 2011? All this happened in 2010. So, to spell it out for you, it was legal when he did it, therefore, he had nothing to worry about. This woman's story has had so many holes shot through it since it broke, everyone is starting to lose interest so ESPN has to re-hash something that was reported two years ago to keep people interested.
Four players interviewed for the story:
3 dispute their quotes or completely deny it
The remaining player (who is about to go on trial for armed robbery) is the only on e standing by his statements. Call me crazy, but I'm not going to take his word. He's not considered a credible witness for a murder trial, why is this any different. He can't be considered a credible source.
Both coaches mentioned (Chizik and Muschamp) have each denied the allegations
Other players mentioned in the story (Darren Bates and Mike Dyer) have denied the story. Hell, Darren Bates tweeted he didn't even know who she was.
All of these events in question (except for Muschamp) apparently occurred while the NCAA was giving the program an anal probe of an investigation. An investigation that lasted 13 months, cost 6 million dollars, reviewed over 3 million documents, and had a team of 6 to 8 lawyers working on it, and it found nothing. Not one secondary violation. Now this woman comes along and interviews a guy about to stand trial, and who is mad with the school and writes this hatchet job of an article. She was dead wrong on the Duke LAX case so excuse me if I question her credibility. All this was intended to do was drive hits to her blog, and idiots around the country fell for her troll.
Not here for a long time, I'm here for a good time.
Even if nothing comes out of all this, it's still great to see bad publicity nation wide for Auburn.
just curious but is this your Dad ?
You posted this long diatribe for what purpose? To tell us nothing will come of this? Well, no kidding. Not many Bama fans believe anything will come of this. Maybe 1 on this entire board. In essence, we are simply enjoying the 2 day national smear campaign against Auburn. And oh my....what a treat its become.

Lol scared i see.
So why does the media continue to have an axe to grind against Auburn in your opinion? Did someone insult someone's mother or something?
That was a direct quote from the article, you douche.
Because in this day and age, anyone can start a blog and post whatever they want. AU is an easy target because of the allegations in 2010. Any no-name wannabe writer can write whatever they want on a blog and they don't have to check facts or write accurate quotes. All she wanted was a story that would be juicy enough to get people to her blog. She has no one to answer to because of something called free speech. She wanted notoriety and attention which is exactly what she accomplished. She even said she had an interest in AU because she went there. What better way to gain attention than to get quotes from a soon to be convicted felon with an axe to grind and re-hash a story that was huge a couple years ago? I agree, that lately there have been some pretty damaging stories about AU. But until consequences come to those who constantly spew crap all over the internet, it will continue to happen. Nothing will come of this just as the last stories were proven to be false, but it is another black eye on our program. ESPN and the other news outlets run the stories because people want them to be true and tune in to watch. It's all about ratings these days and this story in particular is one that people watch.
obviously someone has never heard of nevin shapiro
All i know is that this much good fortune, for this long is statistically impossible.
Bama fans have been touched by the hand of God.
