NCAA closes Auburn investigation (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2011/football/ncaa/10/12/ncaa-auburn.ap/index.html?sct=hp_t2_a3&eref=sihp)

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- The NCAA says it found no major violations committed by Auburn regarding Cam Newton or other pay-for-play allegations.

The NCAA released a statement Wednesday saying it has closed its 13-month investigation into Auburn's recruitment of the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback, whose father shopped his services to another school for nearly $200,000.

The NCAA also cleared Auburn in allegations by four former players that they received payments during their recruitment or careers.

The NCAA says "any allegations of major rules violations must meet a burden of proof, which is a higher standard than rampant public speculation online and in the media."

It also says the investigation could be reopened if evidence surfaces.

OSU, USC, UNC among others just threw up all over the place...


Jim Tressel was fired for lying about a rumor he heard about free tattoo's.


USC was HAMMERED for giving free **** to Bush.


Auburn walks after giving Newton's daddy 180K...but since they can't prove Cam didn't know....Auburn gets nothing.

Wow, college sports is just dirty. Like, really dirty.

Most players at big time programs are getting paid.

The players who are in position to be drafted usually have already signed with an agent while they are still playing. Reggie Bush's case is far from rare. Bush got in trouble because he didn't pay the guys back. Remember the story of Dez Bryant being sued for like $800K, or something crazy like that. That was all debt from when he was still a college player. These players are fronted money, which they are supposed to pay back, by an agent or investor.

Players who are not big time, or do not look like they are going to be drafted, they get paid just to give an agent information about the star athlete. They'll get kicked down if they give the agent info that can help him land the big time athlete.

So there is no need for the NCAA to pay these guys, they are already getting paid.

I don't really get upset at the obvious recruiting violations of the SEC. My problem is more with the officiating agenda that always seems to favor the team with the megastar. Tebow was the absolute worst at getting star treatment... to the point of suspending officials (after the fact) that completely changed the outcomes of big games.

Absolutely.

The SEC TV crews also openly promote the star players/coaches and root for them to beat the underdog teams during the TV production (which Arkansas is usually one of).

I can't remember who it was, but they had someone on the "heisman watch" on that channel this season who was hilarious.

The only time the school get in trouble is when a party come forward. In Auburn case, no one came forward thus they didn't have anything.

I don't trust the SEC or the NCAA to perform just investigations. I view both as corrupt organizations.

The NCAA found no evidence of any wrong doing by the school. What are they supposed to do? Convict people on speculation?

Boise state got a fat lip for Dutch kids sleeping on a couch and some free burgers - 3 yrs probation, 3 scholarships for each of 3 years and 3 fewer practices for each of the 3 years. I sense some conspiracy and shenanigans in this AU investigation. They found NOTHING?

Apparently there is no evidence.

I guess they should take lessons from Auburn on how to cover their tracks.
