I bet Auburn throws the book at them. And by the book I mean the Bible, the only book you're allowed to read at Auburn.

Sorry, but I just don't believe that someone like Selena Roberts is out to get Auburn. What's more believable: Former Auburn players regret telling her what they did and are trying to save face or that Selena Roberts made the whole thing up for some website views?

I believe it's a mix. She's pulled some nasty bs before by leading the media witch hunt at duke over the made up lacrosse rape.

She has very questionable integrity after that.

I'm not one to defend the extremely corrupt SEC, but there are lots of accusations in that story that have no way of being proven. Lots of weak sauce stuff as far as evidence goes. All very plausible and believable. But most of it is not provable which makes for a better story but that's about it.

One of the worst "epic fails" by media and police officials ever.

They were ready to lynch those duke guys in the 1st minute.

she can easily put the rumors to rest if she releases the interviews she has with the former players. but she wont. (???) pretty simple if you ask me. til she does that its he said - she said and wont go anywhere.

I wouldn't be shocked that this actually happened. I'd be more surprised if anything actually comes of this.

Exactly my sentiments. We all know about the corruption in college sports and SEC football is the worst offender. I think they said it pretty well on PTI today. This SHOULD be a big deal, but in reality it isn't because realistically we know nothing of significance will come of it and we know Auburn isn't even the only or the worst offender.

Basically, what basically happened is basic.

Selena Roberts career has been at a free-fall after the Duke lacrosse BS and A-Rod stories. She went from writing for SI and the New York Times to essentially blogging. I'd also like to remind you all that a few years ago she accused Auburn of funneling money to players through Chette Williams, the team's chaplain. Nothing materialized there either.

Do you want to know why this entire story is BS? The whole thing started as a story about Mike McNeil, one of the 4 who has convicted of armed robbery a few years back. McNeil is scheduled to go on trial in a weeks time and faces up to 15 years in prison. You dont think that it is coincidence that this story drops (painting Auburn as a place where racism, police brutality, lack of institutional control, etc. are all rampant) a week before this kid is set to go on trial is a coincidence? McNeil is eager to help his case in any way...they are trying to play it off as Auburn's "cancerous environment" helped lead him to commit the crimes he eventually committed. No different than a murderer or serial killer trying to plea insanity.

The players interviewed were all told they were being interviewed about Mike McNeil. So somehow along the way, a story about whether McNeil was a good guy or not turned into all sorts of accusations involving cheating, grade changing, racism, police profiling, etc? Most of the players quoted have already claimed that their quotes were misplaced or worded in a way to make it appear like they were agreeing to something. The rest is accusations by McNeil himself.

This isn't new. A former player who's life/career went the wrong way making accusations either for payment, or vengeance, or whatever. Do you guys remember the HBO "Pay to Play" special from 2011 which featured a bunch of failed ex-Auburn players making similar claims? That story featured credible individuals such as:

Stanley McClover - productive DE who entered the draft early after everyone at Auburn told him not to, ended up a late 7th round pick and washing out of the NFL quickly. Blew what little money he made on strippers and other stupid ****. Former teammates claimed that he was a habitual liar.

Chaz Ramsey: promising lineman who suffered a career ending back injury at Auburn and then proceeded to try and sue the OL coach, the S&T coach, the trainers, the school, and pretty much anyone he could think of because he felt that someone else was at fault for his injury. Nothing has come from any of these legal battles.

Nothing will come from these latest accusations because they are the words of a writer with little credibility and a former player who has the credibility of a man facing 15 years in prison for armed robbery.

When did I ever say that it was exclusively limited to the SEC?
