The Southeastern Conference (SEC) has abdicated its responsibility to protect players. According to the Birmingham News, “The Southeastern Conference office has reviewed the tape of the Auburn-Georgia game and has decided it will not suspend Auburn defensive tackle Nick Fairley for the Iron Bowl against Alabama.”
Auburn’s Fairley put on the most despicable display in the modern era of college football, yet the SEC refused to take action.
SEC Commissioner Mike Slive’s job should be in jeopardy for his incompetent handling of the Cam Newton scandal and for allowing this type of dirty play.
The SEC will become the SWC unless Slive takes strong action to stop the dirty tactics both on and off the field.
