Lattimore Paid By Auburn?

Yesterday on his radio show, former South Carolina running back George Rogers reportedly said that if Marcus Lattimore signs with Auburn, “something funny was going on.” Rogers appears on “The Score” from 12-2 p.m. on WCCP 104.9 FM, based in Clemson, South Carolina.

That’s a bold statement from someone who is fully aware his voice is being heard by millions over the airwaves. What would make him so confident?

Apparently Auburn message boards are incensed at the accusation by the 1980 Heisman Trophy winner. I wonder if Stephen Davis tipped him off? Now that Pat Dye is back in charge on the Plains, could it be that the old stomping grounds are again being stomped?

Update: According to someone with the show, Rogers was “Laughing saying that if he went out of state something funny was going on.” Further clarification: It was “No shot at Auburn or reason for anyone to get offended.”
