    What is a Bama?

    Our quarterback does front flips, suck it.

    I don't think it's a huge deal. First off, Clay Travis is a worthless POS. Second, I have a hard time believing that anything that blatantly illegal was going on while Bama is still on probation. The people in charge know what's at stake if there is another slip-up. Yes, it looks bad on the exterior but so did Cam-gate, tOSU situation, UNC's situation, etc. When it comes down to it there has to be actual facts and evidence for anything to happen. I just don't see it here.

    The only thing that would worry me is the fact that they sent the c&d letter the day tOSU story came out. That's a little suspicious but could just be a coincidence.

    Your compliance dept spent 26 hours on it. That's not a lot of time.

    Open and shut case. Kind of like JLee's BC accusations.

    To me there is a big difference in "will anything come of this?" and "did any violations occur".

    I am 90% sure that nothing will come of this, and I've said as much on AUC to those Auburn fans who are implying this is (or will be) a big issue. I am pretty confident nothing will come of this because they won't find anything and no one will talk (if there even is anything to find or talk about).

    However, anyone who is confident nothing will come of this specifically because they are confident no rules were broken are simply being a little too homerish. And I understand, I have my "homer" view on the Cam Newton saga....its our nature as fans of our program to find a reasonable, logical defense, and go with it. So I'm not criticizing anyone for doing that. I do the same and expect you to do it as well.

    But aside from that, it is at least interesting to see so many players hanging so much with some random mall clothing store guy. What would be the reason? Just to be nice? Julio with 10 different suits (that's assuming that he has no other suits besides the 10 he was pictured with). I don't know how many of you have bought a suit since 1950, but they aren't $150 like one poster mentioned earlier. $400 or $500 on the low end, $1000 is normal.

    Anyway, like I said, I doubt anything comes of it, and I don't really care either way. I'm not scanning the interwebs looking for the next big Alabama related violation. I grew up in Atlanta and live in Texas now. I've never developed the hatred some Auburn/Alabama fans have for each other because I've never lived in the middle of it. I'll be perfectly happy if no SEC gets a single violation of any kind for the next 100 years and we can all just watch football.

    But I just think that any fan base that sees their players signing things, wearing suits, and hanging out with an older mall store owner who is obviously an enormous fan...I think any fan base that sees all that should at least realistically be in the position of "man, I hope nothing is going on".

    From what I read, neither the NCAA or the SEC has been involved with this at all. I just don't know if I would be so boldly confident that nothing shady has gone down. These are college football players, but they are still 18 to 22 year old kids. They are hanging out at a mall clothing store, wearing this guys suits, signing things with their name on it.....all for nothing at all? Maybe so. But like I said, they are 18 to 22 year old kids. Would anyone really be shocked to find out they were doing all of that because they were getting some kind of incentive?

    So to summarize....I have completely no idea about anything about this story and my opinion is worth the same as everybody elses....nothing.

    What if you rent suits?

    But I dont like the fact that our boys are all over the internet with this guy. Did something happen? I dont know. Its defiantly possible. But I dont see how its a program killer.

    Just need to distance ourselves. And be smarter.

    I think your only real worry is that you are on probation as a repeat offender. Meaning where the standard punishment might be a slap on the wrist turns into something harsher because it is a repeat situation.
