    by the NCAA.

    if they have texts showing requests for payments, this thing could get ugly. Rumors abound, not in the article, that the FBI has wiretapped conversations as part of some other investigation. This could be ugly....

    Over on NetBuffs they have a post that outlines Federal Wire tapping, bank fraud, and basically a massive conspiracy involving boosters and trustees.

    Disclaimer: I can't tell where the information is from. It seems to be from an Alabama site. So this could all be BS that I wrote.

    Amazing the Georgia suspended AJ Green of such a little infraction but AU keeps playing Cam and flaunting the NCAA.

    This has to kill malzahn as a candidate for the CU job though.

    I saw that. That is why I looked for some mainstrewam outlet to see if there was anything to it. That is where I got the FBI stuff, from whihc I still think is rumor right now, but a pretty specific one. If even a portion of that is true, TSHHTF fro AU...

    EDIT: The wiretap thing loks pretty shaky at best...probably bogus.

    According to the post it was coincidental. The wire tapping was for indictments being handed down on individuals that ran a bank. According to the post, the individuals/bank were deeply involved in all the Auburn shenanigans as well. So, the athlete was not the target of the wire tap. Collateral damage.

    AGAIN. This looks like a completely unsubstantiated post on NetBuffs.

    If you're really interested in this topic, check out the below link to Tigerdroppings. nwbaker posted this on Rivals and AZ's today. Interesting stuff, if you've got a half hour to devote to the topic.

    Really amazing part to me is that the same guy who was Chairing the Finance Committee of the Auburn Board of Trustees (Bobby Lowder) back when there was the big NCAA penalty for the pay-for-play scandal during the Pat Dye era... is still in the same position. There's a lot of shady stuff going on with this one.

    Wow, I skimmed the post. AU may be headed for SMU territory...aTm must be licking their chops hoping to replace AU in the SEC. If, and I do mean if, the Mack 10 could be in real trouble...

    I guess Clemson could be an option either way we are looking at another domino effect if it happens.

    Everyone associated with Auburn is now toxic. You can forget Malhzan.

    What? So the blame is shifted away from Texas? **** that. Damn you, AU, for preventing what Texas deserves.

    Doesn't anyone else find it odd that most of this info is coming from sites of Auburn's SEC rivals?

    Word for word, no. But it just seemed like quite a few of those allegations were coming from places like BOL or other TigerDroppings threads.

    I thought the same as you until I read the thread. A lot of connected dots there.
