NCAA plumber fixing leaks? NCAA wants visit with Danny Sheridan

The NCAA wants to speak to USA Today sports analyst Danny Sheridan, according to the Mobile newspaper. Sheridan reported on the radio that the NCAA believes it knows the bagman who allegedly paid quarterback Cam Newton to play football at Auburn. Sheridan declined to name the bagman during a segment on Paul Finebaum’s Radio Network.

However, Sheridan’s name continues to circulate in discussions of the Cam Newton/Auburn drama.

According to the Mobile Press-Register, “Sheridan was contacted through his attorney, Vince Kilborn, who said, ‘I can confirm that an NCAA representative called me Monday and asked to speak to my client about the whole Cam Newton matter.'”

So, why does the NCAA want to speak to Sheridan?

The answer is simple—it knows Sheridan’s information is correct, and it wants to plug the leak. If the NCAA thought Sheridan’s information was wrong, it would not want to speak with him.

It would ignore him; it would ignore him so that he would fade away.

See, the NCAA wants Sheridan to disappear from this discussion.

The NCAA has a long history warning of the dangers of sports gambling, and Sheridan analyzes sports and sets odds. (He doesn’t want to be called an oddsmaker.) The perception that someone in the organization is leaking information to anyone, but especially someone in Sheridan’s line of work does not sit well with the anti-sports gambling forces.

Thus, the NCAA wants to talk with Sheridan.

Sheridan won’t reveal his source.

But the NCAA wants him to shut up.

    Would be nice if they got some valuable information. I don’t really care if Awbie gets busted for HBO- gate or not. That’s another issue. But if they are dirty with Scam Newton they need to be stripped and have their phucking mouthes closed about all of last year. In any case this once again lays to rest the fantasy that any Scam investigation is over or doesn’t exist. Bwaa haww haww! I’m sorry but I don’t recall hearing that the NCAA has talked to Bama or any Deep Throats concerning anything Bama regarding T-Town Menswear or our X-Miami coaches. Bubble busted! RTR!

    I have been told that the bagman is Tracy Rocker. I don’t know how that got to be on the Auburn students’ social pipeline of information, but it is making its way out of the state- I was told that last night at a local Charlotte TV station by a person with ties to people at Auburn University. Now, I have no ties to the institution and this was in a professional setting, but I thought it was beyond strange that that name would just be pulled out of the air by a person who has a vested interest in Auburn. This could be all the more messy especially since Rocker was the defensive line coach there last year and that would be a major NCAA violation. Only time will tell what the facts are in this situation, the rest is just speculation for now.

    The NCAA probably wants to meet with Sheridan to confirm his bogus story. Then they will tell him it is bogus and try to get him to reveal his source so they can to goup the dis-information trail and find out who is starting these rumors.

    The NCAA is embarrassed and spending a lot of money chasing these silly rumors that are being fed to them and the press. Hopefully they pressure Sheridan to give up his source. They can pressure him to give up the false source, because they can expose him and embarrass him if he doesn’t. Then they will close the investigaton.

    The NCAA won’t do this because they care about Auburn. They will do this because they are tired of being embarrassed and spending money being tangled up in the never-ending, neurotic State of Alabama football feud.

      You can copy this biased opinion 100 times and 100 times it will be refuted. Do it again. You would make a good used car salesman

      Good theory, Hoopie. That is probably exactly what the NCAA is doing.

      Also, Pay Dye is sober and Clit Mosely is not a vagina.

    FYI

    Refuted with what? Anything anybody argues at this point is just speculation. Bama fans obviously are going to claim this indicated guilt, and Auburn fans are going to interpret this as the NCAA trying to expose DS. The reality is that nobody knows.

    Hoppity Hooper is having an orgasmic fantasy. Regardless of what you said FYI, what hoopster just spit out is the biggest crock of speculative horseshyt I’ve read in a while. And considering the the number of dumbazz Barnturds on this site that is saying a lot. RTR!

    I am going to laugh my ass off at you moronic Bammer BOOBS when the NCAA comes out with no evidence against Auburn! You cheating bastards will cry foul for the next 100 years!

    GET A LIFE AND GET OVER IT!

    FYI

    Crimsonite and whoever else cares to respond,

    Does the fact that DS is a Bama alum and his recent shenangigans on PF not raise any doubts about the validity of his claims? If the situation was reversed and we were talking about an AU alum making claims about UA, would you not question the person’s motive and credibility?

    FYI-If we even had an inkling that it could be true, we would be demanding a clean program from Moore and Saban. However, you Auburn people try to reason out the most unreasonable allegations and it’s just plain disgusting. Think objectively

    It doesn’t matter where Sheridan went to school. He’s the nations #1 sports handicapper. He’s got more important things to do than fabricate bullshyt against Barnturd U. and has a reputation for level headedness and authentication to uphold. Just like any professional who does investigative reporting, he is going to make an error now and then. But it damn sure isn’t because of petty homerism. Just hang in there a while fools. If you haven’t all abandoned your Crippled Eagles by the time the 4th loss rolls around; you’ll be doing it quick enough when the sanctions do. RTR!
