    It's more of an opinion piece, but it's in line with what you've said.

    Just because the university hasn't been caught doesn't mean there wasn't wrongdoing. It took Lance Armstrong a long time to get caught. It took the Fab 5 a long time to get caught. It took Reggie Bush a long time to get caught etc. etc.

    Why not discuss Auburn in an Auburn thread? Posting an SB nation opinion piece about confirmation bias and Selena Roberts really informs zip about cheating at North Carolina.

    Auburn didn't do anything wrong.

    After conducting more than 80 interviews, the NCAA has concluded its investigation into Auburn University. The NCAA enforcement staff is committed to a fair and thorough investigative process. As such, any allegations of major rules violations must meet a burden of proof, which is a higher standard than rampant public speculation online and in the media. The allegations must be based on credible and persuasive information and includes a good-faith belief that the Committee on Infractions could make a finding. As with any case, should the enforcement staff become aware of additional credible information, it will review the information to determine whether further investigation is warranted.

    BTW, the Rogers/Cecil drama was a Mississippi State issue.
    When the NCAA actually finds evidence of wrongdoing, it hands down penalties. On the rare occasion when the NCAA can find no evidence of wrong doing, it issues declaritive statements to that effect. One can quibble about the appropriate severity of a punishment for a given infraction and even if the NCAA doles out penalties in a consistent manner. But there really isn't any wiggle room concerning exoneration due to a lack of any credible evidence to substantiate an allegation.
    Cecil never approached Auburn. Quit trolling especially given this kind of trolling ignores established facts.

    I didn't start the tangent and clearly it's a distraction. Undeniably, continuing Auburn-specific discussion in this thread is a hijack. Why would you keep at it?

    Don't bother. It's not worth it.

    Your question requires more information.

    LOL. The only thing established with certainty was your cornering of the market on a particular brand of confidence.

    Actually the NCAA settled it definitively with an exhaustive look at the issue. But really while I agree Auburn is infinitely more interesting than NC, you need to talk about this in an Auburn thread per Boss' previous edict.

    The specific post you're referencing made a legitimate point in the context it was posted. Your reaction to it at the time was innapropriate and continued reaction is certainly over the top and utterly uncalled for in this thread, a thread about the Tarheel cheating issue.

    Jeeps, rather than try to get this thread closed with blatant baiting and trolling, why not just unsubscribe from the thread?

    Why does it seem like every college thread comes back on Auburn cheating? I think that horse was beaten a LONG time ago.
