    Vegas got off the hook. Basically broke even.

    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    That is simply BS. Cam is eligible without condition. The NCAA is not investigating Auburn's recruitment of him and has said on multiple occasions that there is no evidence his recruitment was problematic.

    That's why it's trolling....it's inflammatory without basis in fact.

    Dang, sore winners and losers abound tonight.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    Re: Who is your pick to win the BCS National Championship?

    In specific terms/reasoning, (lets say Newton got benefits) why would Auburn's title be vacated, when the Reggie Bush title at USC still stands (right?)?

    there goal is to break even. they want the same amount of money bet on both teams. They win 10% from the winners. If you bet $100 and you won you get back $190. That is called the 'juice'
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    I root for teams, not conferences.

    If Newton and Auburn don't blatantly cheat I have nothing against them.. At all.

    I think Alabama is the best team this year by far and just had things go against them.

    Edit- Alabama and TCU are my top two teams this year. Though Alabama clearly blew their chance and I'm not saying they deserved the title.. Just pure talent.

    Vegas was HEAVILY exposed to Auburn -3. That push saved Vegas millions.

    You haven't been ahead of the curve on what the NCAA has actually said, interpreted and ruled this entire process.

    The same report that got this whole story right from the beginning, said "the money was too good."

    That was Cam's words.

    Bottom line: the NCAA will put down the hammer if/when this FBI stuff comes to fruition. They had their hands tied (though solicitation should have been enough).

    Throw us a bone paintmered We've been discussing whether or not Auburn/Oregon/SEC/PAC-10 is better for 2+ months now, and we finally have one data point to utilize. How about turning and looking the other way on this one.

    Seriously, as long as nothing is personal let us have at it for a bit.

    so your saying there was a lot more money bet on Auburn? if that is the case whoever set the spread did not do a good job, because like I said, they want to set the spread so the money is split 50/50 and they win the juice. They don't want to leave it to chance.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    I got my orders. So sure, why not? Have at it.

    I'll let the new crop of mods clean up instead.
