Everyone's hero Mark Emmert is just another dirtbag.

I can't wait for the major conferences to break off from the NCAA.

It was an inevitability that Auburn would get caught with something.

Oh look, another college team actually breaking NCAA rules that Emmert won't do anything about.

Of course he closed his eyes to things that happened at LSU...he was president there, which also makes the dirtbag quote true.

I encourage you all to listen to the interview selena roberts did on 790 the zone in atlanta.
http://www.790thezone.com/podcasts/Epis ... x?PID=2610

790: Hey selena, the players you quoted said they were either misquoted or simply did not say what you said they said. Do you have tapes?
Selena: I have tapes of some of our conversations.
790: Why don't you release the tapes to give yourself some credibility?
Selena: I don't need to.
790: Do you have any evidence of anything you reported aside from what the players who allegedly made these quotes (which are being disputed)?
Selena: No.
790: Why don't you release the tapes:
Selena: Why? I don't need to.

She doesn't answer any question straight. Hilarious how she was outclassed by sports radio guys. The point in the interview where she just goes "well I think you are wrong" is classic. She uses a lot of the same terms as far as "courage" as she used in the Duke case.

The ESPN report was hilarious too. They wanted Auburn to punish players for a substance that was not illegal at the time and was not able to be tested for. These reports are hilarious. Gives Auburn a black eye in the court of public opinion but these are just allegations at this point.

Pat Forde trolls hard: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/ncaab--eve ... nM-;_ylv=3

I imagine that Dude has already labeled Forde an ACC apologist and penned a poorly-written screed in rebuttal.

Pat Forde? Seriously?

Now there's an unbiased, credible source (NOT)

First of all let's be clear, WVU had a horrible first year in the BIG 12 and Louisville is having a great year. This year, Louisville's overall program > WVU's overall program.

However, let's look at the source, Forde worked for the Louisville Courrier for 17 years, was suspended for ethical violations, went to ESPN and couldn't last there, now he's writing for Yahoo?

Secondly, only in Forde's mind is 17 million better than 26 million.

Meh, this article is to be expected, when you consider the source.

More shenanigans, this time from Oregon:

http://www.cbssports.com/collegefootbal ... ll-program

The school has acknowledged "at least one major violation" by its football coaches alleged by the NCAA during the ongoing investigation into the Ducks' recruiting practices 2008-11. According to the Oregonian, the school has proposed to self-impose a two-year probation and reduction of scholarships for the next three seasons.

Oregon is the prime example of everything that is wrong with college sports. dont even try to hide the fact that Nike is over-the-top funding the program, yet castigate the poor (relatively speaking) college kids for taking money, gifts, etc.

Source: #ACC grant of rights document was distributed to schools 3-4 weeks ago for review.


If it's been out there for 3 weeks, surely the message board insiders knew this was going down, right?

I eagerly look forward to the fatalistic posts not based in reality about how FSU's going to pay $200M to get out of their GOR.

Why would WVU message board posters care about the ACC Media Rights?

Unless it's to recalculate the delta between what the Big 12 media rights are worth and what ACC media rights are worth.

Time to move on to a new issue Rocco, that one's old and stale.

Not sure if SRS. You just played a Warz game where the main bad guy is an ACC-obsessed WVU message board poster and no one thought it odd.

But, to show its not LGP making it up, this is the board that has been the genesis of the Dude, TuxedoYoda, and the rest of the ACC rumor mongering. Its one of the more active WVU sites on the internet because of its rumor-generation factory:

http://mbd.scout.com/mb.aspx?s=159&f=4582

Here are current topics:

"It is inevitable that Big 12 will be carved up" (opening post -- "WVU needs to start making in-roads now with the SEC and ACC to get an open slot")

"Swofford"

"ACC NETWORK BABY---"

"Should Big 12 go after UConn and Cincy now?"

"ACC to announce Grant of Media rights?"

"ACC just did us a favor!"

Those are the most recently active posts as of the time I posted this message, and each of them are about the ACC or discussing what should happen as a consequence of the ACC GOR. WVU fans appear pretty obsessed with the ACC, at least in this corner of the internet.
