Timing of NCAA's LSU sanctions suggests: 1. This relates to asst coach D.J. McCarthy. 2. NCAA has a second investigation ongoing into LSU.

This is an announcement of a Committee on Infractions hearing that took place months ago, so it isn't Lyles or recruiting service related.

Per the NCAA's LSU press conference, because of the timing of the request on the Lyles material, this can't be related to Lyles.

The NCAA has a 3 pm conference call today to discuss a committee on infractions decision regarding LSU. Stay tuned.

Also talk that Lamarcus Joiner got paid (via his uncle as proxy) to go to FSU.

CFB is corrupt. Just professionalize it formally.

duh. if the NCAA wanted to actually do anything about it, they'd have been slamming teams years ago. i can't imagine any of this is very difficult for them to figure out.

corrupt college football is corrupt.

this past year might be the worst with TWO BCS bowls being vacated due to violations.

This is a great interview with Urban Meyer (post-retirement). Basically sums up why the NCAA is doing very little about this. Supposedly part of his retirement was that he was tired of dealing with corruption and having kids ask him for money to sign them, instead of doing it because they want to play for that program.

Yep, it's all about the money. That's why I want to just legitimize the professionalism of the game. The good old days aren't coming back. And the good old days were rife with cheating. The money was just a lot smaller.

WRT Meyer, he was probably super stressed out about trying to keep every dirty SOB playing at Florida (say 12 to 24 kids) and dirty booster (many of them) and dirty agents (many of those) all in line in addition to coaching a football team.

It's a stupid issue to even worry about. NFL coaches have much less stress from bs like this.

Yeah, I can't say I don't think Meyer participated, but he was definitely appalled coming from Utah to the SEC where you had to cheat to compete.

It's sickening what the sport has devolved into. Rampant cheating, huge money, championship games, BCS retardedness, Game Day, etc...

Since it's already there, come up with some sort of pay for play system and implement a playoff.

Lamarcus Joyner's uncle was pushing him to either Ohio State or Miami. He was never going anywhere but FSU.

i'd be willing to bet he still got paid via some source. these kids aren't going to school for free when programs that are just as big are knocking on their doors with a couple hundred grand

Rumors floating that some bad Bama news is going to hit this week as well.

Freaking crazy year.

I think you are right. Hell, "SuperFans" are likely going to do the work for them for free.

It's really easy for people to go around and take pictures of violations and post them online. This crap happens everywhere. Is that what we've devolved into a society as? Spying on our neighbors to get them in trouble?

I'll Godwin the thread and say that's what the Nazi's did.

LMJ was offered money by OSU, FSU quickly disassociated themselves with Drummond and went through STA.

I'm worried OSU offered him money. Obviously FSU outbid them regardless.

How do we outbid for someone who was always going to FSU regardless?

if he was offered nothing by fsu and a good amount by osu, he'd be a buckeye right now

BuddyCHRIST 07-23-2011 10:44 AM

The problem with the internet is random nobodies can post made up stuff and someone will take it as fact. The Lamarcus Joyner thing is complete crap and is someone trying to make a name for themselves.

sbh15 07-23-2011 10:46 AM

you pay for play if you want to compete and joyner is just as involved as everyone else. you don't get a 5* recruit without paying these days. it just doesn't happen.

While I tend to agree with BuddyChrist's statement, I also agree with you. The recruits out there that want to get paid, get paid.

I've always been cynical about CFB and paid players, but now after this year, I'm very cynical. Way too many schools have a lot of smoke.

I still think this Lyles thing is going to blow up. And who knows what Y! is going to unload.

sbh15 07-23-2011 10:54 AM

well yeah, nobody has any proof that joyner got paid, but you know he did and that's why people start the rumors. just like i know florida has paid for their five star recruits. sharrif floyd barely had enough money to make it to an all-american game, there's no way he didn't milk recruiting for some money.

Yep. Goes back to why not just let players get paid legitimately?

JoeJoeBrown 07-29-2011 04:27 PM

Things heating up at Auburn. Danny Sherridan says the NCAA has a witness in the Cam Newton case.

Interesting.
