    So these guys slap themselves on the wrist over two players, but the NCAA removes the ACC championship and $100,000 from Georgia Tech over $312. Pathetic.

    Exactly what is a one year probation? Can they still play for national title & keep $ from bowl game? If yes, that is a cheap discipline. Maybe LSU could have suggested their players could no longer have access to Dairy Queens...

    USC, OSU, and now LSU??


    How long will it take before they end up doing something to Texas, Oklahoma, and Florida?

    Well I'm sure that Texas has some pretty good lobbyists that know where to spread the money around the NCAA. I believe that all of these big schools break rules.

    Oklahoma is dirty. See big red motors.

    Florida, as far as I know, is clean.

    Texas is clean.

    Lots of programs around the country should be wary though. Starting with the two teams that just played for the title.

    They're all dirty. It's just a matter of whether or not they're caught. None of the big time schools are clean. Naive to think so.

    Since I do not work within any University or have any first hand knowledge of how any University conducts their business, I have no idea who is clean and who is not.

    But LSU is too big to fail. The Georgia Techs and the SMUs of the world, well, they make good examples of what will happen if you break the rules.
