    This is lengthy, but a fantastic read. The guy is an SEC booster/bag man, and he makes it clear that this stuff is the norm across the conference, shocker. I think all this is assumed, but it's interesting to hear how easy it is to keep these payments and cars under wraps. The football culture in the southeast keeps people from squealing. The only thing they have to worry about is rival fanbases.

    My favorite part...



    "The coach won't know exactly when we decide to make that happen, but they've got a good idea. Then we get to see just how damn good a recruiter he really is. I know one of our guys once stopped putting in big bucks, way more than what I do, just because a head coach cussed too much on the team plane. [The coach] was losing anyway, but because he took the Lord's name in vain, that guy was offended by his morality and stopped illegally paying college football players."

    The posters over at Reddit are pretty convinced that this is a bag man for Ole Miss, making the cussing coach Ed Orgeron. The big recruit that tried to get the $70,000 over the phone is most likely '13 5 star DE Chris Jones that ended up at Miss St. The NCAA was looking into his eligibility last summer.

    Somehow, this story got the Taiwanese animation treatment, and it's great

    Thought this was interesting...

    If a majority of bag men want a particular coach out and an A.D. or president won't make a move, they'll just dry up funds.

    Do we have bag men? Did they have a part in either Pidgeon or JE leaving?

    JE wasn't here long enough.

    Hawkins, maybe. I have trouble envisioning an actual bag man for CU. I'm sure there's an improper benefit here and there, but it seems like you'd need a pretty organized and fervent football culture to have the network of people described in that article.

    No. But we do have a bag lady.
