NCAA locks barn door after discovering that horse has escaped into the next county.

Wasn’t there a tape of Cam crying saying the money to go to AU was just too much to turn down?
What if it’s a family member and the player/athlete STILL does not know? That, to me, seems to be the loophole here. Did they close it?????
I’d say yes, if they define a family member as an agent.
This whole thing is a damn joke.
The SEC already has a conference rule (14.01.3.2) prohibiting family members from doing what Cecil did. The compliance staff and Slive didn’t have the balls to enforce it.
I know this because I was recruited as a non-revenue sport athlete 20 years ago. It was drilled into my head that if ANYONE asked for money for me, with or without my knowledge/consent, I would be declared ineligible to represent any SEC school.
So how much did you get?
Chapel Hill made me an offer I couldn’t refuse…
Then I came home to UGA after 2 years there.
And your post is right on. Next time it will encompass his step-mother and extended family. Until then prepare to see a changing definition for “Family”.
SCD is right. There never was a loophole to close. It’s all just a dog and pony show to cover up that they let Auburn off the hook for no real reason.
Don’t worry. Auburn’s already got their recruiting folks looking for the next loophole.
No wrong was done, I thought. If everything was copacetic, why a new rule?
I was thinking the same thing.
Git ur faks str8t h8ters! When it was finally brought to Aubruun’s attention that there was wrongfuldoingness, they sat Cammy down…overnight. Then Slivey and Co reviewed the evidence and concluded he didn’t know nuthin. It’s all good. And he’z gots to plays in them big games.
War. Damn. Pigeon.
And Tuck Fech.
The tattoo parlor operator who bought all the tOSU players equipment were never charged as “Agents”. Does that make it “OK” if you use tattoos and pot as currency? The answer is not for me, understand, but you never can tell how it may come in handy for recruiting as well.
