If the SEC was protecting Auburn, explain the phantom roughing call on Fairley in the Iron Bowl that year.
There were several "previous play is under review" moments at key parts of several games in 2010 but you really need to point to one that was obviously wrong and that decided a game.
Concerning this notion that Auburn is dirty, Auburn is the second winningest program in the SEC over the last three decades and it's been more than 20 years since the program has been hit with NCAA sanctions. It most recently came out of an exhaustive investigation of Cam and recruiting with a clean bill of health with the NCAA saying it simply couldn't continue to investigate in good conscience. Simply put, no one can credibly argue that Auburn is dirty based upon facts available for public consumption. If it’s all the same, please refrain from smearing Auburn's reputation on little more than lunatic rumors, message board gossip and babbling radio hosts.
