OT- College Football 11/18- The Auburn Saga

Holy crap. It looks like this Cam Newton situation got a hell of a lot bigger. This was posted on LSU's fan forum on November 16, and has exploded on the internet. If even half the allegations in this thing are true, Auburn is about to get the Death Penalty.

Here's  the link to the thread, for those interested. And here is the same post, but in an easier to read format.

Here's a quick summary of the exhaustive post, for those involved:

With the help of a few rogue's in the Auburn Board of Trustees and other alumni and associates, Auburn was doing the following:

 

  • Securing guaranteed winning slot machines for Auburn players
  • Giving money to players via unmarked ATM cards
  • Giving loans to players and families
  • Using a Children's Fund charity as the distributor of this money for the players

According to this thread, if the accusations are truthful, Auburn could lose accreditation as a university and would be kicked out of the SEC. Sorry if this is confusing. But holy shit. This is insane.

Oh, and one quick sidenote. Apparently, Tommy Tubberville was removed by the board of directors because he was unwilling to do pay-for-play, especially in the wake of hiring Nick Saban.
