    I read the story and I agree that the guy had good intentions. However- this is the kind of petty shit that can hang this program. Everybody is going to have to be Christ-Like in their dealings with boosters and in this unfortunate case – well meaning outsiders. This bullshit will get us hanged if we are not careful.

    The rules are ridiculous if they don’t allow for players to have friends and go fishing, or otherwise have a life. That’s what friends do. They help each other out. This guy needed the extra help so he could do something he loved.

    The NCAA really should lighten up…about ten tons.

    This whole mess is perpatrated by two people auburn, lsu, and florida. They know the tide is rising and all they can do is take players on fishing trips and try to say it was us. Urban Mayer knows this is Bama’s year and his lock on the SEC is over, lsu just wishes they had Saban back, and auburn is a joke. We own them in the IB. THe record speaks for itself. But even with all this, we’re still going to dominant the SEC!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hunter – what bothered me about the Scarbo story was the missing pieces in the story. How did they meet and the guy kept emphasizing how naive he was about Football. I will state again that things like this – no matter how well intentioned – is going to put us in the Outhouse.

    Hang everyone involved. If they are not affiliated with Auburn then they have no rights to do this sort of thing!

    This should only go to prove that Bammers are nothing more than thugs. they were probably planning on stealing his wallet while he pulled that snapper in!!!!!
    I am superior. I have the Auburn Creed!!!!!
