You see, for decades, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) did not particularly pay attention to whether teams were running "clean" programs (as in not paying their players). A 1929 Carnegie Foundation investigation over a number of years revealed just 28 "clean" programs of the 112 universities that they visited.
In fact, the NCAA did not even have an enforcement division until 1952!
In 1956, an assistant coach was found to have paid two high school recruits (twin brothers) $500 as an enticement to come to Auburn.
