The Red Elephant Club has gotten to the New York Times, Fox Sports, ESPN and now National Public Radio. On NPR today, Frank Deford blasted Auburn. And of course it is Alabama’s fault and its minions in the national press.
According to the official transcript, “It’s certainly worth highlighting that the two prime incumbent NCAA champions Auburn in football, UConn in basketball are both current offenders. UConn convicted; Auburn, already a serial cheat, under investigation once again.” (Source: NPR transcript).
It can’t be good for Auburn’s national perception when NPR is talking about the program and its latest NCAA troubles.
