    Love the attitude from Oregon. They would pretty much boat race almost everybody in the SEC, and they know it.

    LSU would be a problem for them. Would rather see that game!

    Oregon should have beaten Auburn a few years ago. If they hadn't ****ed that up, it would have already changed some perceptions.

    What's really hurting the Pac-12, though, is the decline of USC. Those NCAA penalties were bull**** and reek of hypocrisy. The head of the panel that imposed the sanctions (and made a bunch of sanctimonious statements about the penalties) was none other than Paul Dee. Paul Dee was head of the NCAA Infractions Committee at the time and... wait for it... is the same Paul Dee who was the Miami Athletic Director at the time everything was happening with Nevin Shapiro (cash, hookers, cocaine). I know I'm going off topic, but **** it. I hope Pat Haden absolutely cleans the NCAA's clock this week asking for an elimination of USC's penalties in light of the NCAA's complete ineptitude, hypocrisy, and inability to level penalties in an equitable manner.

    Besides, anyone who even casually follows college football knows what was going on with that Auburn team Oregon lost to.

    USC lost their appeal today.

    I am pretty sure everybody saw that coming from a mile away. I hate USC as much as the next guy, but the NCAA ****ed them a lot harder then they needed too.

    Auburn simply out paid Oregon in 2010.

    Pretty much. While Oregon was nickel and diming it with street agents, Auburn boosters were putting 6 figures into organizations run by recruit dads. :lol: This whole thing is so ****ing dirty.

    Combined with Gene "War Eagle, God bless" Chizik looking the other way on Michael Dyer failing drug tests, it was the perfect strategy.

    :nod:

    It's why Chizik got the job. Boosters knew he'd play ball. Just needed to find him an OC, buy him top talent, and let him be the front man while he coached a little defense. The money and chance to win big with an SEC HC salary made it a hell of a better opportunity than fighting for minor bowl eligibility in Ames (even if he'll probably never get another HC job).

    What did he make in that gig - $2M a year for 3 years? I could live off that for the rest of my life - even after taxes.

    USC did get screwed, meanwhile Oregon gets off with a slap on the hand.

    Just open it all up and let boosters bribe players all they want to go to their school. That's pretty much what's happening anyway and that way there wouldn't be any false pretenses about the whole recruiting process.
