Auburn fans, especially those on talk radio, have sanctimonoiously rebuked Alabama and Nick Saban for the minor violations the University reported. Thanks to the Mobile Press-Register we now know Auburn reported 13 minor violations in the last year, with three of these being from the football program.
The big laugh from the story was Auburn’s repeated plea that the academic scandal involving its sociology department was “unrelated to athletics.”
Of course, it is just coincidental 99.9-percent of your football players are sociology majors.
