    I thought there was an investigation going on there, perhaps I'm mistaken about that. I don't know what your snipe is supposed to mean, guess its a failure of my OSU degree to understand your fancypants insult.

    Clearly your degree wasnt in investigative journalism.

    Still lost. I did check to make sure I wasn't remembering wrong, and there is a yahoo story of an NCAA investigation going on at Auburn, so what am I missing here?

    The story isnt valid but this had been addressed elsewhere (i.e. the SEC thread there the context is actually appropriate) making the original point about you bringing it up in a context of a conversation defending OSU just a flaccid attempt at deflection all the more germane.

    Thanks, Dr. Cooper. I wasn't even the one making the "if the SEC did it" comment. It is the end of the year--casting my vote now for Most Infuriating At Times poster.

    Pat Forde is wrong, at least that is what I am told.

    That is fine, thanks for not brow beating me because I happened to hear the first part of the story and didn't do a follow up investigative report before daring to post on a message board.

    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."

    Sorry but any argument otherwise is kind of silly in the face of facts.

    Re: Ohio State Football 2012

    The NCAA has actually punished the SEC more than any other conference, so the argument that they hit OSU harder than others doesn't hold any weight. We broke the rules, we paid the price. It is what it is.

    With that being said, perhaps the Forde article is false, but to pretend that Auburn shouldn't be questioned or is beyond reproach is laughable. Maybe the concrete proof will never surface, but it's known that Cam's dad was shopping his services. I find it hard to believe Auburn and every other school in line recruiting him didn't know of this. They did a good job of covering up their trail so the NCAA couldn't bust their chops. I don't believe it's a matter of favortism or bias, just a matter of not enough evidence.
