Clearly the NCAA only finds something when there is something but hattas can keep chasing Bigfoot. Just don't be offended at the smirks you get from people as they watch you howl and then get exhuberant when you interpret someone else howling back as evidence that you find a new species.
jojo, you're missing my entire point. The NCAA will find fault with whomever they want to find fault with. I guarantee you Auburn has violated many NCAA rules. I guarantee you Alabama has violated many NCAA rules. I guarantee you Duke has violated many NCAA rules. I guarantee you Stanford has violated many NCAA rules. The NCAA just chooses to punish whom they want to punish. I'm not as naive as you. (Of course, I'm assuming you're not trolling.)
I could care less if Auburn has violated many NCAA rules. I could care less that Newton's family or Newton himself was paid in some way at both Auburn and Florida as I'm sure both happened. Again, do I care if he was paid? Not at all. That's the way college athletics works.
But to sit here and act as if the NCAA is some kind of independent entity that treats everyone the same is nonsense. No one outside of Auburn actually believes what the NCAA has to say about the Newton case. Frankly, the only folks who believe the NCAA are the opponents of teams whom they make a case against. Even then, it's not like they believe them, they're just happy they ruled against an enemy of theirs. The NCAA is one of the most corrupt organizations in this country and you treat them as if they're the standard-bearer of honesty.
