    Would LSU, Georgia or any other program want the press to dredge up crap that may or may not have happened over 10 years ago? No! I say let it go.

    I think you are missing the point here.

    The NCAA is already looking at the basketball program at Auburn in the light of recruits being paid to play basketball.

    What happened under Bowden's watch is important. The reason is if boosters are paying basketball recruits now like alleged, and it's the same boosters who were paying football recruits then it shows a pattern. What's even more disturbing about this is the school was on probation for rules violations at the same time this occured.

    The "Statue of Limitations," by rule, is literally thrown out the window if there is legitimate reason to believe these things have been going on for some time.

    How this will play out...there is no way to tell. As evidence by ruling after ruling the NCAA has no guideline when it comes to *prosecuting* one school as compared to another. One can easily come to the conclusion they (NCAA) hate booster involvement...only look at Bama and Michigan for example. But, on the other hand you could point to Notre Dame with hundreds of thousands being given to student athletes and say they'll look the other way.

    Can anyone say, "Lack of institutional control"?

    You knew that Auburn was doing it because Bama was doing it...They couldn't compete without it...

    You know they're probably not the only ones, but I'm telling you now, they've been after the SEC for awhile...they need to start looking into the Big XII and the Big 10....This sh!t isn't monopolized by the SEC...
