  1. Was that CBP last game?

    Auburn still has to face their own sentencing from the NCAA though. It's coming, we just don't know when. Auburn can't have a few rouge AU coaches on the staff operating and orchestrating impermissible benefits for AU players and not get their hand slapped by the NCAA. I imagine Auburn Compliance mitigated quite a lot of the damage by firing Persons and suspending the other two asst coaches AND sitting the two players for the season. But I don't see AU making a big public show of support about CBP until they know what they are facing down the road with sanctions/penalties.
  2. Eli Stove -- Torn ACL

    It'll be a miracle to see him back at full speed any time during the regular season, it'll take some time just to get to up to "game form" for the serious competition we face in Oct-Nov. Get well Eli.
  3. Was that CBP last game?

    You have a valid point. The players were punished and served their time. There has yet to be a ruling on AU, or the coach that all this crap transpired under.
  4. Legit Question

    So a 'Nip it in the Bud' approach would service Auburn much more so than taking over the media machine in this state? Don't spark the fire and the media won't be able to fuel the flames! Don't screw players and sexually harass 'em resulting in a Title IX lawsuit for sexual discrimination, try to operate a department that accepts all races and doesn't result in racial discrimination lawsuits, try not to choke your asst coach (chuckle), don't give the Feds ammunition, don't pay student athletes or their family members even if they are some of your old AU chums, don't set up your baseball coach or try to pin infractions on him in a effort to s#itcan him with cause while the AD tells blabs out, "We're not gonna pay you a dime brotha" only to have to settle a federal lawsuit later when it's determined he was wrongfully terminated, etc. Cheers to a New Day with a new Prez and a new AD!
  5. Legit Question

    I got an idea! How 'bout Auburn University open the wallet and build a first class journalism school? That way Auburn can put their own people behind the pen and get the respect they deserve once and for all. How 'bout some of our wealthy alum open their money bags and buy out some of the media outlets in the State? Then Auburn can control the flow of information get their fair share of glowing articles? I'm a firm believer that if you don't like the status quo, CHANGE it yourself. Rather than complain, bitch, moan, belly ache - actually do something about it. AU could make a stand, they could change the status quo with a state of the art school of journalism - crank out Auburn men and women journalists for a change. Pool money together and buy out the local media and broadcasting and actually put Auburn people in charge.
  6. Purifoy eligibility

    BP is the HC, he had 3 coaches and 2 players commit NCAA violations under his watch whether he was aware of their activities or not, it happened. At this point the NCAA has ruled on punishment for the student-athletes, but at some point they're going to have to come to a ruling on the program.
  7. Was that CBP last game?

    I'm right there with you man! This recent news and conclusion to Purifoy case provides a sense of closure on this whole thing. Now my question is will Auburn have to serve some sanctions or probation, i.e. loss of scholarship, reduced recruiting privileges? At the end of the day, Auburn has/had up to 3 coaches and 2 players involved in NCAA infractions.

    CP admitted to getting paid by AU as a player. But fans and apparently the PTB wanted so badly to be relative in basketball again that we chose to gloss over the past history of the coaching staff.
  9. Purifoy eligibility

    A one game suspension for accepting a lunch worth $75? Yet from that same agents expense report there were listed "player loans" in the tens of thousands to players at some pretty big time programs. NCState ($43,500) to Dennis Smith/Seton Hall ($26,136) to Whitehead/LSU ($16,000) Quarterman/Kentucky ($48,000) for Adebayo/Washington ($10,000)Fultz.....all of these programs declined to comment on the findings. NCState's AD stated that they disassociated from the agent back on 2012 but they would fully cooperate with any investigation.
  10. Was that CBP last game?

    I don't understand your response here. Documents (hundreds of pages) from the FBI investigation were obtained by Yahoo Sports. A balance sheet and portions of expense reports from Andy Miller & Chris Dawkins with ASM Sports were made public. Are you saying Thamel fabricated the whole story and there's about as much truth to it as the Cecil Newton story? You made the comment that the FBI doesn't like to leak information about their investigations, yet somehow some very sensitive documents were obtained by a media outlet and Thamel reported on it.
  11. Purifoy eligibility

    Who knows? I don't recall UA making his circumstances available to the public.
  12. Was that CBP last game?

    Great points AU64!
  13. Was that CBP last game?

    I don't think the FBI cares too much about leaking details of their investigations. Why else would they allow this pond scum to have access to detailed records like this? Pete Thamel: Documents and bank records obtained in discovery during the federal investigation into the underbelly of college basketball detail in meticulous fashion the expenditures of prominent former NBA agent Andy Miller, his former associate Christian Dawkins and his agency, ASM Sports. They include expense reports and balance sheets that list cash advances, as well as entertainment and travel expenses for high school and college prospects and their families.

    The kid wasn't even on the court this season and the UF fans acted like idiots.
