Wow. Basically throwing away the season.
Any NCAA violations to consider?
It's not UT or OU or some other big program so they're going to get the book thrown at them. There was talk about NCAA violations because Fran told, rather sold, people the info about injuries to his team. I wonder if there could be any legal issues as well due to privacy laws.
Aggy nation is probably stoked about this. Perfect opportunity to do what they were going to do at the end of the year anyway without having to get their hands dirty or their wallets emptied.
about selling the info....
i would tend to think that this would have been something that the admin would have known about in one manner or another. one has to think that aTm has a compliance (sp?) department. would this idea not have been run through them?
how new is/was this idea of selling info to boosters. hell, ya gotta think that info, with the kind of money these guys may have influenced some things in vegas? maybe?
i dunno. i dont know enough about all of this stuff. im just offering up ramdom thoughts about what has been posted earlier. i am definitly no expert on this stuff.
Out of the frying ban into the bonfire.
Be careful with the bonfire jokes.
Here is an article for you guys who don't know whats going on down in College Station.
Texas A&M coach sold insider knowledge to boosters
FRANCHIONE SPEAKS OUT
CSU might need a new coach....
Just connecting the dots.
that would be a killer hire for them
Wow you knew it was only a matter of time though.........I wonder what type of sanctions they will receive???
I realize what he did was wrong and I'm not saying it's not wrong at all. But how sweet would it have been to be an Aggie fan and be a subscriber to that newsletter, you talk about inside information! That's what we all want right there! All the real information.
so far no press on this here in baja oklahoma.... what he did, releasing the medical information is against federal law, a felony, is what my ag co-worker says.... and that may cause him to lose his job, but the NCAA getting involved... I dont know about that....
I still think that was hilarious...:smile2:
yes, but rather tasteless....:huh:
that was a bad deal and it was just a bunch of kids.
Oh, I'm not arguing about how tasteful it was.
Fran will not be released until the end of the year
Didn't some kids die in that bonfire thing?? If so, then there should be no jokes made about it, tasteless or not. Kids celebrating their traditions and something going wrong and some of them dying = respect and NO JOKES!!
I seem to remember that it was while they were setting up for the bonfire---I was them with cranes out there and standing up and banding together what looked like frigging telephone poles. Just a massive frikkin fire, and that is an understatement. Have they started that back up, or is it done forever?
It is only illegal if you don't have the individuals permission. Get ready for A&M to spin this to down play the penalties. I am pretty sure they will have some kind of documentation with each of their players basically like a release form saying that the staff are free to discuss this type of thing if they deem necessary.
Lighten up! Equating the word 'bonfire' with the 1999 disaster is too narrow minded. You don't equate "Shuttle" with "NASA disaster" do you?
Fact is that the A&M Bonfire has been, is, and will continue to be an A&M tradition sure as Ralphie is part of CU's.
Using the word bonfire should be fair game when referring to A&M, and shouldn't automatically be associated with the tragic loss of 12 Aggies nearly a decade ago.
The purpose of the bonfire to show A&M's "burning desire to beat the hell outta t.u."
The University does not hold the Bonfire anymore. A group off campus has a similar one every year since but It's nowhere near as big.
i know. i was just saying....:smile2:
Or as dangerous.
Lighten up, Francis. You want to know what really made the joke hilarious? The ****ing aggy response to flood a message board and post pics of Rae Carruth as a response, THAT's what made it so hilarious. The goddamn lemmings came in with their typical 'boycott this' 'classless that' and all that ****, and totally blew things out of proportion. Tasteless jokes are constantly made about tragedies and, believe it or not, humor is one tool to move past them. That's a concept I expect aggy to not understand, but certainly I didn't think we'd have that kind of head-in-the-sand mentality here.
You know what this thread needs?.......
Being a noob on AB this season, the bonfire thing went completely over my head. Considering it was 4Dem & 96, should have figured that out.
So here's an AB101 question: is the bonfire thing a regular ritual before the CU-A$M game? It might just come in handy for the run-up to the CCG.:wink2:
No, the Bonfire is only done before Texas.
