    Young men in college get drunk. Most don’t have a team counting on them to do the right thing. There’s no way a coach can watch 100 young men. The young men must watch themselves and believe that the team comes first. “Don’t hurt the team.”

    The Oky St. scandal sounds very familiar….hostesses seducing recruits, pay for play, bonus cash for recruits, jobs for recruits’ parents…wow!

      Yes, yes it does…sounds a lot like the ongoing and everlasting investigation at Miami….

        Reminds me of the pictures of the bulldog recruits at the strip club.

    It won’t be too much longer until the NCAA will have gathered enough details on the improprieties committed by Sharkfins, to finally figure out a punishment befitting such blatant disregard for the rules of college football.

      you’ve been saying that how long now? And you and anyone else has yet to provide one shred of evidence to back your baseless accusations.

    • keith

      Now cid……. that’s not nice.

    The indiscretions of Oky St. occurred over 7 years ago. Things happen over a few years. People aren’t making the money they planned on and they begin to talk.

    Evidence is hard to find in a case like this one. Cash is untraceable! It has to be video, photo or audio evidence. The NCAA can hardly rely on hearsay and interviewees. However, interviews can lead to more compelling evidence.

      then you should shut your trap in the absense of evidence. You shouldn’t make accusations when you have nothing. It doesn’t reflect well on you.

  • Cid Riley

    When there’s enough suspicion, then there’s just cause for further investigation. I am saying that we all know there are tremendous amounts of suspicion. So it’s safe to say that the NCAA is investigating further.
