I think it's terribly laughable to suggest Cecil only tried to get money from one school. Yeah, right.
First, given it has been established that MSU did not offer to pay Rogers, there could be no leverage.
Seriously though, here's the problem with the above position. At some point, the accumulation of facts trumps blind supposition and this issue has been thoroughly vetted. When a position remains intractable to new facts, the position has no foundation.
The NCAA conducted a lengthy investigation into Cam's recruitment. The NCAA, an institution with the reputation of getting the guy they gun for, gathered all of the facts that it felt it needed to fully investigate this issue and the NCAA cleared Auburn of wrongdoing. Why? They found no credible or persuasive evidence to substantiate such allegations and couldn't in good faith
continue pursuing the issue. That's extremely striking language coming from the NCAA. Adjectives like dishonesty fail miserably when describing those that disagree with the position in the quote above....in fact the use of such adjectives is divorced from the facts.
