    [ame="http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=6275253"]Willie Lyles asked Texas A&M for $80K to sign recruit Patrick Peterson - ESPN[/ame]

    The same guy tied to 25K from Oregon for Seastrunk, apparently asked for TA&M to "beat" 80K for PP7. Does this possible put us in the same situation as Auburn is? If anything it doesn't look good especially after what the Auburn player said about an LSU booster today on HBO.

    of course it does. thats why im telling all you haters to stop being hypocrites. LSU players have been getting money since day 1. just because we dont have reports of it being obscene amounts in comparison we do the same thing.

    deal with reality and understand its what schools have to do to succeed.

    these are semi pro athletes who need to be paid and often are. they are not here for an education.

    Clearly, Malone's conscience was so heavy over this situation that he waited 3 years to tell anyone. :dis:

    What exactly is your ax to grind here? It honestly wouldn't surprise me if LSU paid players. If that is found to be the case at LSU, at Auburn, at Oregon, wherever, nail them all to the wall. Since you seem to be a big fan of making the NCAA semi-pro and paying the players, why stop there? Let's allow parents and agents to shop around their high school kids for cash, too. How about junior high, also?

    Patrick Peterson was shopped around to TA&M (CBS)

    While the college football world hung onto every word of the Wednesday night's episode of Real Sports on HBO, there was another recruiting bomb dropped on the SEC. A report on ESPN.com indicates that a former Texas A&M football coach was told that the Aggies would need to "beat" $80,000 to sign former LSU cornerback Patrick Peterson.

    Can a mod please change the titleof this thread? No one has alleged pp was shopped to LSU and we shouldn't be in the business of starting rumors. He was allegedly shopped to A&M. That's the story.

    Every school does not pay players thosands of dollars. All schools have players who get extra benefits somehow but this is a different level. If we did this, we deserve to be punished severely.

    To answer the initial question, it's not as bad as auburn because that was cam's dad. Deniability is more plausible in this situation.
