obviously Jeremy Blooms dad should have shopped his son's ski services around.
Good to know that Reggie Bush should've just played dumb to how his parents got a new house, he would've been fine.
The NCAA is the most amazing body, makes rules and enforces or ignores them selectively.
The appeal of an NCAA ruling is to the SAME NCAA board that originally ruled on your case. Beautiful.
Yep, someone please explain me the difference between the Reggie Bush and Cam Newton cases.
I know this question isn´t going to sit well with some people here, but does anyone have the impression the NCAA does its best to screw over TCU here?
That's exactly what it looks like to me. Enforcing this case against Newton (or how about against Auburn???) is too inconvenient, since it puts TCU into the MNC.
If Ohio State was sitting at #3 in the BCS rankings right now, why do I suspect Auburn might be in more trouble??
Texas Christian University Horned Frogs, currently third in the standings of the Bowl Championship Series (BCS). The BCS Rankings determine who gets to play in the BCS National Championship Game. If the University of Auburn Tigers, the team Cameron Newton plays for and that´s currently ranked Number 1 in the BCS Rankings, lose the Southeastern Conference Championship Game against the University of Southern Carolina Gamecocks it´s widely expected that the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs will move up a place and therefore play in the BCS National Championship Game.
Agreed on the TCU thing. They have to be worried about what would happen if TCU were to be in the title game.
How is Auburn getting a pass on all of this? They've been nailed how many times now for violations? Seems pretty obvious that money changed hands somewhere along the way, is it too much to ask that they treat them just like they treated USC?
You guys really believe that this is a big conspiracy theory? :rolling_eyes:
I want the ncaa to explain a few things -- what impact will this decision have in future years? Does this send a message that high $ boosters, et al, can financially influence college teams by dealing with families and not the recruits (directly)? In years to come, how can the ncaa investigate/levy punishment on any improper benefits cases after this?
The one question I´ve been asking myself since this story first broke - How are they going to keep Newton eligible until the NCG? If Auburn sees off South Carolina on Saturday and wins the SEC it´ll be 4 weeks until the NCG. 4 weeks can be a lot of time.
First and so there is no debate about my position, the NCAA screwed the Newton case up royally. Does any rational person think that the committee would have set speed records on the reinstatement if this was about a linebacker for Northwestern? The special treatment sickens me. It was clearly meant to keep Auburn in the running for the mythical national championship and to heck with the rules. They also set a terrible precedent. What deterrence is there for a family if all they have to do is say "yeah I pimped my kid but he did not know about it" and there is no punishment.
Now to my lawyer point. USC got nailed because the NCAA found that the coaches knew or at least had every reason to know that Bush and his family were getting benefits. It is the dreaded "lack of institutional control" infraction. That is what got USC killed, not just the payoffs. Here Auburn has not yet been shown to have been aware of Newton being shopped to MSU and not been shown to have paid Newton senior to get the kid. Now could all of those things have happened, well of course it is the SEC. But until that is shown, the Bush case is different than this one.
No Credibility At All........meet Mr box......Pandora, that is.
I can't wait until my nephew is ready to sign a big time FB scholly. I'm going to tell every school interested it will cost $200,000 for a signed LOI. Of course I won't tell him, you know, to protect him. But I'm going to ca$h in baby. Big Time. That's cool with the NCAA right?:rolling_eyes:
It is now. Hope it don't change by time your 'phew grads hs.
Dude took money or somebody close to him did. He wants to forfeit the Heisman 5 years from now, go ahead.
he knew what his dad was up to, he didnt bitch. his interviews are crap, guarantee you, he knew.
Looks to me like Auburn has had so much practice at cheating that they have perfected it.
Perhaps it should be entered in the UHC next year? WSP?
