    It is absolutely true. His name is Don Fuell, a QB from Guntersville. I wrote sports column for the Plainsman in 1957 and hence got to know all the coaches and players. bama was really pissed that they lost Fuell to Auburn. They sent two guys to Fuell's apt. posing as encyclopedia salesmen just to check it all out. I could tell you a lot more details about this deal but will leave it there. But it cemented my dislike for all things bama forever.

    i swiped this from another auburn non pay board. Former Auburn football players were sent this letter today by Gus Malzahn. The coach is trying to open the door more to the past. Here’s the letter: Dear Former Players, We just finished up the spring season with A-Day on Saturday. For the first time, we had a 7-on-7 Auburn Legends game, and it was a huge success. We appreciate all the guys involved this year and will continue the A-Day Legends game moving forward. Our theme this year is “Ride for the Brand.” We are putting Auburn first in everything we do and making a strong emphasis on our core values. We will have the Auburn Creed hanging in every players’ locker and in every coaches’ office. I really appreciate everyone who came to Lettermen’s Day earlier this spring. We had more than 200 former players on the sidelines. That afternoon, I had a chance to visit with a few of you, and it was very insightful. I realized I need to make it a priority to keep you more informed as to what is going on in our program. I want all former players to always feel welcome. With that said, each month you will receive updates on our program from me and my staff. I’d like to invite you to come to our fall camp practices this August. I will send you those dates once they are set. I am also looking into opening some practices during the season and will be in touch as we get closer. This will be my 10th year at Auburn, and I love this place. This program would not be what it is today without you. Thank you for all you have done to make Auburn great! War Eagle!

    free article #PMARSHONAU: The real story of Auburn and the NCAA ByPhillip Marshall 5-6 minutes So what’s the real story about Auburn and its run-ins with the NCAA? What does it mean? Some facts could be helpful for anyone who is actually in search of the truth. Though I express some opinions here, the facts are in black and white. This is not in any way an attempt to whitewash anything or to say that Auburn or anybody else has been mistreated by the NCAA. I move on with the full knowledge that some will take it that way, regardless of what I write. Hare are some facts, indisputable, hard, documented facts. --According to the NCAA database, Auburn programs have been hit with major sanctions by the NCAA seven times. Auburn is tied with 11 other programs, including SEC members Texas A&M and Georgia, for the fifth most all-time. Fifteen programs - including Alabama, Kentucky, South Carolina and Mississippi State – are tied with six. SMU has the most major sanctions with 10. Arizona State and Oklahoma have nine each. Wichita State has eight. --Auburn football was last hit with major NCAA sanctions in 1993. If you are counting, that is 26 years ago. --Auburn lost basketball scholarships in 2004 when the NCAA enforcement staff found a way to call Mark Komara, a summer basketball guy and well-known Alabama fan and supporter, an Auburn booster. That was the last time Auburn was found guilty of major infractions in any sport. --Auburn underwent an investigation as thorough as anyone ever has in 2010-2011. The result was the Cam Newton was ruled ineligible for 24 hours. On Oct. 13, 2011, the NCAA informed Auburn in a letter that it had been cleared. --In the summer of 2011, oddsmaker Danny Sheridan said on the Paul Finebaum show that the NCAA had found the “bagman” that provided money for Newton and that he got the name from a source inside the NCAA. In an extraordinary response, the NCAA issued a press release saying "Danny Sheridan continues to make vague, unsubstantiated claims without backing them up with proof. Contrary to his claims of having an inside source with details on the Auburn investigation, the NCAA has not provided information to Sheridan or anyone else.” --Auburn basketball coach Bruce Pearl was accused of doing some unseemly stuff more than 30 years ago. He lied to the NCAA at Tennessee and got a three-year show-cause order as a result. He has never once been accused at any school by anybody of buying players. --Auburn’s response to Chuck Person’s arrest was to immediately suspend and soon fire Person, refuse to play Austin Wiley or Danjel Purifoy until things were resolved, consult with the NCAA and hit Wiley and Purifoy with suspensions recommended by the NCAA. If the NCAA had recommended a suspension for Pearl, that would have happened, too. To steal part of a line from “A Few Good Men,” those are the facts, and they are undisputed. And here are some opinions derived from those facts: --It’s too early to say Pearl will come out of this unscathed, though any kind of major action is highly unlikely. The NCAA has the wherewithal to sanction him for Person’s actions because he was the head coach when they happened. --Comparing anything about Auburn or about Pearl to a coach being caught on a wiretap talking about paying a player is off-base, lazy and is not in any way a search for the truth. --Pearl made himself look bad by refusing to talk to Auburn president Steven Leath until the FBI investigation was done. Since Pearl was not and has not been accused of anything by the FBI, I thought that was a mistake on his part in 2017 and I still believe it was a mistake. As a result, Pearl is often compared to LSU coach Will Wade, though there really is no comparison. Anyone who actually examined the situations would know that. --No matter how many times someone says “the head coach always knows,” it makes no sense that Pearl would have signed off on what Person has pleaded guilty to doing. It did nothing to help his program and a lot to hurt it. --Blaming anybody at Auburn because Ira Bowman allegedly was involved in an admissions scandal at Penn is a stretch beyond the breaking point. It’s laughable. --Most of the dirt in college basketball comes from shoe companies and filters through summer leagues. Auburn went to the Final Four without any of those one-and-done kinds of guys that shoe companies are willing to give big bucks to go to certain schools. --College football has its rogues, too, but it isn’t the same. Kids don’t wear football shoes to school. One great player doesn’t make nearly as much difference in football as in basketball.

    I said it last year, but I still haven't been able to get used to the college basketball personnel turnover. You get so attached to watching these guys and it's over right when it's beginning. Makes me wonder at how the top programs maintain their consistency year in/year out. I really wish the NBA would adopt a baseball-esque leave after high school or play three years. That said, COMPLETELY support Chuma's decision and he is going to be a baller at the next level. Such a pleasure to watch, especially as he really came into his own as a player this year.

    RJ might've pulled up since the QB was no contact. It would be interesting to see how it would've played out in a live game. If he flies in and attacks the mesh without hesitation, he blows the play up and possibly creates a fumble.

    I was a huge fan of Fanin. I wasn’t sold on Tate. I argued that his fumbling was exaggerated for too long. There comes a point where I just had to tuck my head and walk away defeated. He turned out to be among the worst we ever had holding the ball. Had chronic shoulder injuries that probably caused it. But we just couldn’t hand him the ball anymore.

    And you are the media/PR expert for?????? Yes it's the sunshine pumpers who infect every thread in every forum with Gus hate. It's the sunshine pumpers who won't shut up and can't stop the hateful whining about Gus. And it's the sunshine pumpers who accuse other posters of the inability to be objective because those posters are disgusted by the constant negativity and do not want it spreading like some kind of infectious virus. Posters having fun talking about Bruce or CBT? Let's just inject a dose of the unwelcomed Gus Bashing virus here so all the enjoyment is gone, and then act all superior when called out about it. BTW......I'd rather be painted as a sunshine pumper,although inaccurate, than a hateful,obsessed fanatic who spends hours bloviating about something he really has no idea about anyway. The subject has gone beyond what anyone else but the I Hate Gus miserable groupies want to see. Everybody else got your opinions on Gus months ago and we do not need or want the constant reminders.

    I agree about being a favorite. To me, one-cut backs make this play even more dangerous. Their ability to get the defenders to flow outside and then stick foot and go generates even more space. Shivers would be a demon running this play.

    DP introduced his little one earlier this week. The 🔥 will continue to grow and with another offseason he will come out of the gates ready to start and put on a show. I predict he will be the star of this team in 19/20.

    Not a big fan of Romney, but I'll give him credit for standing on principle, which is a hell of a lot more than I can say about other Republicans. The Republican senator broke with his party, criticizing the Trump administration after reading the 448-page report. The 448-page report released Thursday outlined multiple attempts by the Trump administration to interfere with Mueller’s investigation, describing 10 incidents in which the administration may have committed obstruction of justice. The report also outlined instances in which members of the Trump administration had contact with Russian nationals. Vox’s Zach Beauchamp summarized the key contacts: We learned that two Trump campaign officials, campaign manager Paul Manafort and Manafort’s deputy Rick Gates, were regularly providing polling information to a Russian national whom Gates believed to be a “spy.” We learned that, after Trump publicly called on Russia to find Hillary Clinton’s emails, he privately ordered future National Security Adviser Michael Flynn to find them. Flynn reached out to a man named Peter Smith who (apparently falsely) told a number of people that he was in contact with Russian agents. We learned that Trump foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos attempted to arrange meetings between Trump and Putin, and that Trump personally approved Papadopoulos’s work on this front. “I am also appalled that, among other things, fellow citizens working in a campaign for president welcomed help from Russia — including information that had been illegally obtained; that none of them acted to inform American law enforcement; and that the campaign chairman was actively promoting Russian interests in Ukraine,” Romney said in response to these findings.......

    Watch Joey Gatewood flex his NFL arm to complete a deep corner route to Seth Williams. I am not saying Gatewood is ready for the NFL. This type of throw is the type of pass he will need to make consistently to make it to the next level.

    Selfishly we hope he comes back, but as Auburn men and women, we hope he goes to the NBA and does great. Only helps Bruce Pearl with recruiting. That is my take on it.

    Can’t believe they called that third strike on julien. The baseball gods corrected the call with Connor Davis, but julien should’ve had a literal walk off. That ball was at the shins and inside, wasn’t even close. No shame in him looking at that. The umpire screwed up.

    The 30 years ago issue had to do with him accusing Illinois of paying for a recruit that he was recruiting to Iowa when he was an assistant there. It was a little messy for Bruce but he actually didn't do anything wrong there either from what I have read.

    Eh. Of the examples Mueller pointed out in the report, 8 were examples of obstruction of justice where Mueller concluded all three prongs of the statute were met, then four where a prong is "unclear." Trump would've been prosecuted for all eight of those but for the fact he's the president. So, hooray?

    I keep thinking about Mario Fannin. He didn't get a ton of touches but he made them count and he was versatile. In 2009, he ran 34 times at 8.4 per and caught 42 passes at 9.8 per. Man, if we could get that kind of balanced production out of Joiner... and with the other weapons we've got now (we've got 2 OMacs!)...

    I was very clear when we have a need of a large O-Line class like this year we find a few of the right 3* guys. The guys the coach's think have the potential to become SEC OT's and we offer them. Now is the tricky part if we need 3 OT's and we think we have a good shot at 2 elite OT's we take the 1st one of the 3*'s that meet coaches requirements. We explain to the others we need to wait on higher ranked players. If we need 4 OT's then we would accept the first 2 3* guys. What has happened in the past is we slow play all of the 3*'s we like and then when we strike out on the big dogs the are already gone

    So I go in a different direction on that, but I see why you and many others have said that, and I don't expect anyone to follow me, but... ...what I've seen a couple times from Martin is him leaning into contact at the LOS that never happens and falling forward over his own feet. And what I mostly saw from OMac was him simply just leaning too far to the side and falling down. Unusual mental + balance issues in both cases, but I don't think they had much to do with contact... ...EXCEPT I wouldn't be surprised if OMac was coached to be conservative about contact given his very slight frame combined with his extreme value as a home run threat. Without checking his film, I'm guessing Noel Devine didn't take on too many LBs or safeties, either.

    Duuuude, I had no idea that you were dealing with something like that. I'm so sorry and I hope that you're managing okay. It's a shame that the hot 27 year old in the short skirt that rolls her little suitcase into your doctor's office every other Thursday isn't selling cannabis along with all of her Pfizer products. Then maybe your doc would be on board. I've never dealt with anything like what you and the others, and certainly our friends with the really heavy stuff, deal with. But I went through a really tough year and there was no guarantee that it was ever going to get much better, and that did a big number on me. So I did get a glimpse into it and, well, if anybody ever just needs to let some sh** fly, PM me. That can be a lonely place. Come on, Gus. Give us all something to smile about this fall.

    A lot of it is just bull. Let's see here... 1. Flint- It's received a ton of help. The help doesn't get as much coverage as the complaining. 2. Puerto Rico- I believe they also have electricity and hospitals in PR. I guess this is a reference to the storm that ravaged them... US aid to disasters has always sucked and yeah we need to quicken the pace for it. But again, they got tons of help, just not in a timely enough manner. 3. Black churches? Don't even get the reference... is there a rarity of "black" churches where this girl is at? Wouldn't repair for a church fall under the same category as repair for Notre Dame? 4. Caged children- I don't cage my children, no one I know does. I get it's about illegal immigrants needing better housing while they are illegally in the US. It sucks their parents put them in this situation. 5. Homelessness- again, something that receives crap tons of money every year. The fact that it exists doesn't mean there aren't a ton of good people out there doing their best to stifle the growth of homelessness. 6. Veteran health care- Never have I ever had a problem with my VA healthcare. It is extremely simple to get signed up, and if you lack the mental capacity to fill out the proper paperwork they have people for that as well.

    IOW, it was just like what DiFi, Maxine Waters, Van Jones et al were saying from day one: "There is nothing there." Amazing what you can find out when you have an open, intellectually curious mind, and can listen to both sides and not jump to some wild ass crazy conspiracy theory. And my comments above go both ways. Pizzagate, Collusion, etc are all failings of intellect on both sides.
