For the league that inspired the phrase “if you’re not cheatin’, you’re not tryin’”, this comes as a rather shocking development:
By June 2008, the SEC will be without a program on probation for the first time in more than 25 years.
Commissioner Mike Slive set the goal four years ago of having the league be probation-free by 2008. It looks like it might happen if the crazed coaches, fans and administrators can keep their noses clean until June 11. That’s when Mississippi State football will be off probation.
Who’da thunk it?
