    If he's wrong then why hasn't Auburn set the record straight?

    Auburn officials declined comment Wednesday.
    Seems as though they're not as definitive as you are regarding this issue

    Give it up. You know darn well Auburn isn't going to comment publically.

    I honestly don't know if the NCAA is doing an investigation. Maybe you have sources so that you know that they aren't but Auburn's response seems to indicate that the ooposite is true.

    You can't read what you're trying to read from the fact that Auburn has not formally commented on musings by some sportswriters.

    Pat Forde is one of the best and most prominent writers in college football. His opinion vastly trumps yours JoJo.

    Actually no it doesn't because he is wrong.

    Let me get this straight. Two nationally respected college football news sites post stories that the NCAA is looking into Auburn (cbssports and yahoo sport). Auburn fans says they are wrong. Auburn fan is right? It reminds me of the time when ProFootballTalk was trying to get a start and made a living off of breaking Bengals stories. Us Bengals fans thought it was all wrong, turns out PFT was right.

    Let me set you straight. Two "national stories" stated that the NCAA was looking into recruitment of players in Memphis and as part of the process interviewed people within the Auburn Athletic department and Forde alluded to some type of escalation. What Forde failed to mention was that concerning Memphis, A) this is old news, B) the NCAA actually focused upon MSU, and C) there is no real tell in the NCAA questioning Auburn officials given that they signed Jovon Robinson,a guy whose transcripts were altered, D) there is absolutely no reason to believe that Auburn recruiters were behind Robinson's transcripts being altered, and finally, E) Taylor and Luper (the "other" stuff) had been taken off of the recruiting road as part of a self-imposed penalty because of a completely unrelated secondary violation that Auburn self-reported.

    Forde basically took some salacious stuff and wrapped it into an Auburn bow during Iron Bowl week. Other really important details Forde seems to miss is that Gogue essentially gave the middle finger to "boosters" with the way he has conducted himself during the HC decision and now search (so much for those heavy handed boosters) and it is crystal clear who is in charge and has influence, there has not been any hint of a LOI regarding Memphis, and oh by the way Luper and Taylor are cleared to go back on the road and continue their off campus recruitings efforts, the Auburn Athletic department certainly isn't losing sleep over Fordesque "reporting" (again Trooper and Luper wouldn't be hitting the road if the NCAA was hitting overdrive) and the Auburn compliance office has an outstanding track record (see Cam and see how accurate the Fordes of the world have been regardng the Plains burning down).

    In other words, Forde has no real insight into Auburn football or at least if he did, he certainly chose to keep it well hidden in his latest expose.

    Sorry, Auburn guy is right.

    Jojo if what you say is correct then Auburn is being foolish by not stating that they're not under investigation. For them to let this fester wih no comments, they risk letting this adversely affect the coaching search and recruiting

    What fans write on the Internet isnt going to affect their coach search or recruiting. There are actual personal relationships involved in those endeavors.

    On the other hand it would by foolish to issue public statements about NCAA compliance issues.

    Its funny to read the Razorbacks forums and the absurd postings that they think 27.5 million will get Les Miles out of LSU. Les just wants job security at LSU by increasing his buyout.

    You and I are fans on the internet. Pat Forde and Yahoo! sports are something else entirely. As to your 2nd point it'd only be foolish if there is something to the allegations
