I for one am shocked.

I mean, a SEC team bending the rules, so it ain't so. What's next, Oklahoma players selling coke or getting paid at a car dealership...oh wait.

Report: Alabama Crimson Tide to vacate football wins - ESPN

Gee, I hope that they don't have to vacate all of them. The NCAA needs to stop picking on the good lil' program of Alabama that does absolutley nothing wrong, ever.

There's a reason people say the SEC stands for "Schools Excelling in Cheating"

That cracked me up

Looks like Tennessee under Lane Kiffen should continue this tradition.

It's a shame because between things like this, weak admission standards, celebrity treatment, and boatloads of other wrongdoings, honest schools like Rutgers will never be able to compete on a large scale nationally.

He'd have to cheat first. Unless you actually think secondary violations, which we've reported all of 6 this year, are cheating. They are quite minor and nothing more than a slap on the wrist.

If Lane's going to get us on probation for secondary violations, I guess The Ohio State University will have to drop football all together:

The Columbus Dispatch : Oversight vs. privacy at OSU

Quote:
About 4,000 violations a year are reported to the NCAA, many of them unknown to the public because of FERPA. But one thing is certain: Ohio State has more than most. Florida, for example, reported 112 violations since 2000, and Oklahoma reported 224.
UT (the real one) has made the choice to release their secondary violations, unlike most schools. They're meaningless.

Open up your minds folks. ESPN is nothing more than a ratings hungry promotional station. These stories on Kiffin are commercials for SEC football this fall, which just so happened to sign a billion dollar contract w/ESPN. Funny how these things work.

So he has had 6 violations before he has even coached a UT game. Like I said Tennessee should continue in this tradition.

What that your coach is getting trouble before he has ever played a game. I wouldn't worry I'm sure your years of mediocrity will continue.

Oh and the real UT is in Texas

I expect us to finish somewhere around 8-5 or 9-4 after the bowl game. That's not up to our standards of course, but certainly not dog****.

UF will pound our eyes in, but they would have regardless of any comments by our coach.
