Water wet, sky blue, NCAA probing Auburn... again

Yes, I understand that this website is dedicated to the sports teams of the University of Alabama.  Yes, I understand that this story deals with a University on the other side of the State.  No, I am not “AUbsessed,” but neither am I AUblivious.  When there are allegations of major wrongdoing by the defending National Champions (just threw up a little in my mouth), who also happen to be our in-state rivals, I’d say that’s a story I want to follow.

 

I paid attention when Maurice Clarett took his “overnight test drive,” (but not so much to his later goings-on; no potential effect on college football).  I followed the stories about Reggie Bush’s parents’ house, etc.  I read about Kiffen’s three-ring circus.  And now, I share with you this blog written by John Taylor with NBC Sports (no clue which school he attended) about the alleged goings-on in the Land of the Auburnite.

Nothing new here, just a link to an article regarding information that has already been reported here elsewhere.

 

This article links to three others, which touch on the fact that the NCAA investigation into Cam Newton’s recruitment is still ongoing, that the NCAA was looking into Sean Nelson and the recruitment of Greg Robinson and Trovon Reed out of Thibodeaux, and that McClover and Ramsey has met with and is going to meet with the NCAA, respectively.  That last article points out that McClover’s allegations made on HBO are outside of the four-year statute of limitations, while Ramsey’s are not, and that Ramsey said that he “may” know the names of boosters and/or coaches who provided him with cash.

 

The primary article itself deals with the now-defunct Tiger Prowl, and the Auburnite’s response to a Birmingham News open records request.  Specifically, since the Tiger Prowl is currently the subject of an ongoing NCAA investigation, the Auburnite is not required to release any records pertaining to any potential violations.  As stated by Senior Associate Athletics Director Scott Carr:

 

“The NCAA is not reviewing Tiger Prowl as individual violations. They are reviewing the entire event as a whole…  Therefore, the investigative phase of this event is still ongoing and we are currently working with the NCAA.”

 

Hard to blame this one on anyone other than the current staff; Tiger Prowl is a 2009 Chizik original.  However, this article indicates that it is still unknown as to what exactly about the Tiger Prowl the NCAA finds questionable.
