LSU doesn't care. Will Wade doesn't care. The money is there and they will spend it until the NCAA actually does something.

Am i wrong in thinking that LSU has to be cheating? I mean what are the selling? Looking at their recruiting class they do well in state but their top prospects come from the east coast.


You just got through saying you knew Bama paid a player on our current roster from Huntsville to come to UA, but you're unsure if Will Wade and LSU is cheating? LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

Exactly. They’ve decided to take the Auburn approach: “We ain’t cooperating and we ain’t admitting anything. If you think you have enough evidence to bust us, go ahead. But you’d better make damn sure it’ll hold up in a court of law because they will be the next one seeing the case if penalties are issued.”

Wade is literally on tape talking about paying players. Nobody with an IQ over 30 thinks there's any chance that's not what he was saying.

As a Bama fan if I inside info we were paying for a player's service that secret would go to grave with me.

Glad someone said it. Anyone who doesn’t think something fishy is going on isn’t paying attention.

The kid was lured to Mountain Brook after his eighth grade year when he played varsity at Shades Valley.

In the mid 2000s, his older brother originally played for Trussville, tried to coordinate a mass transfer of other local star players to Clay Chalkville to form a super team and got popped by the AHSAA and ended up at Shades Valley.

None of this behavior should be surprising to anyone who has been watching. They make their decisions based off $


This this this. I'm from the area. I'd like to have him at Bama because he doesn't seem like a bad kid, but that family is all about pimping their kids out.

Just to go on record, I didn't want D. Cousins at Bama because of the stuff that happened at Erwin/Center Point high school. I thought it would take a coach like Cal or Roy Williams to get through to him.

Quick question if we start getting CBs for Trendon what are you guys who dont want him going to say?


"I hope the NCAA maintains their 'do nothing and ignore the problem' stance towards blatant impermissible recruiting practices in college basketball."

It's not that I don't want him. The part of me who wants college athletics to not be a dirty, scummy business wants us to stay away from him, but he's a good player who would help us win games and it's not as if the NCAA is going to do anything about him going around with his hand out, so whatever.

For LSU fans to not care about Bama they sure do lurk on our board a lot.

Uh. Wut?

Auburn is currently the only program in FBI scandal to have both cooperated and admitted wrongdoing with the NCAA

Auburn has not been implicated in any "pay for play" recruit purchasing.

Auburn may have won the stupid olympics but we did not win Will Wade's "Strong Arse Offer" sweepstakes.

Isn’t Wade on tape? How can he skate past this if his voice is literally on tape saying things like “strong arse offer” and “nba rookie minimum”? I just don’t get it.

I think people are jumping to conclusions that his reinstatement at this time will really mean much at all once the NCAA begins their investigation.

LSU AD practically said as much about the reinstatement, about as "hands off" as you can get.

The quotes on the tape are second hand through defense lawyers, so nothing is going to really happen until the NCAA has access or a verified transcript.

I think the only way Wade skates ultimately though is if somehow those tapes are never made available to the NCAA.

and I think lSU knows they can hold their own with their former interim coach. He has been a HC before. This way they may be able to fire with cause as opposed to firing now and doing the buyout.
