Clemson boosters and 2 assistant coaches did do things to convince players to sign, then apparently got "turned in" to the NCAA because they may have out-sleazed another school's alumni and coaches. Many of our problems were recruiting-related. All rumor points to Monte Kiffin, then head coach of NC State (1980-1982), and current DC of the Tampa Bay Buccanneers. This is, of course, similar to the rumor of Phil Fulmer ratting out Alabama....in neither case will we ever truly know. We do know that at that time Clemson pretty much owned NC and SC in recruiting.

I was perusing the archive of the SB Nation blog covering Clemson, Shakin the Southland, today and found a very informative article on the South Carolina school's probation in the early 1980s. A lot of it was painfully familiar but this particular part really jumped out at me. It seems the apple didn't fall too far from the tree, eh?
