“When you’re at the top, people question things.”

It’s nice that Dennis Lorio had no negative answers about Auburn when the NCAA questioned him about the recruiting of two former players.

On the other hand, it’s the questions that should bother you if you’re an Auburn supporter.

The NCAA asked him about two players only, Reed and Robinson. The NCAA asked him about one college only, Auburn.

    More money fell out of Trooper’s pants as he was walking around Louisiana.

    Here’s a question that begs to be asked, was Lorio’s retirement planned or spur of the moment?

    Again, a situation that someone can plead ignorance on NCAA rules. Lorio is not required to know NCAA rules or comment on them from in regard to former players at a previous job. Who knows Auburn could have covered their bases with him as well.

    Doesn’t appear that the NCAA was looking very hard, does it?

    The NCAA is a bad joke that just keeps on going and going. Money talks and the rest is BS.

    Lorio said he told the investigator, “No. I didn’t say that. You inferred that.”

    Holy cow! This opens the door on the inevitable confusion over the meanings of “inferred” and “implied”.

    Considering the coach’s answer, the questions don’t bother me at all.

    Maybe we should be asking why Richt, after such a crappy season, had such a haul?

    After all, Rodney Garner was once employed at AU, therefore he has to be a cheater.

      People generally think of Richt as a guy who would never condone such. Versus a place where bending and breaking the rules has been a way of life. Together with the fact that you’ve allowed your school to be hijacked by an oligarchy of ethically questionable people. Your comparison kinda falls apart there.
