    I have examined the issue objectively. I am now asking you to quit focusing upon me and start focusing upon the facts of the issue. But ya, if you want to argue that Auburn is dirty, show us your work. Otherwise don;t be surprised when someone challenges your opinion.

    The preponderance of the evidence says Auburn is clean. The NCAA addressed this issue specifically. Your argument ignores the most important evidence and gives tremendous weight to things that have either been discredited of contradict established fact.

    No. I see arguments such as these to be baseless. Again-show your proof. Youre basically hand waving and speaking in very broud generalities then reaching a very specific conclusion. It's not surprising that facts poke holes in it.

    And again dont label others as condescending when they criticize your opinion for a lack of support.

    "This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
