Is this the point where I show my shocked face? hehehe
Gee, this is all rumor and speculation.

If I were writing the unauthorized biography of Auburn football it would have sounded an awful lot like that article. Except that I don't get the implications that the coaches badmouth certain players to NFL scouts. Yes they may want to intimidate the players into doing what they're told but it's also in the program's interest to put as many guts as possible in the NFL.
I'm shocked, shocked and appalled! What is left to believe in this messed up world of ours if an SEC team can't be trusted?
bert is telling Alex Collins right now to stash the $$ under his mattress.........
Looks like ESPN maybe was waiting for the other story to get out the door so they would coincide? Otherwise that's a hell of a coincidence...which when it comes to ESPN and/or college football, I don't believe exists.
My personal favorite part of the article:
"In one extreme case, a freshman tight end, Dakota Mosley, failed seven consecutive weekly tests for the drug, but never was punished. (He was suspended for three months in a separate incident after he tested positive for marijuana.) The Arkansas native says he learned he'd failed a sixth test on the same day he was scheduled to meet with NCAA investigators to discuss a probe into potential recruiting violations.
Instead of being kicked off the team, Mosley was brought into then-coach Gene Chizik's office and told he could keep his spot on the team.
'The whole time, I was thinking, "They can't do nothing about the spice,"' Mosley told The Magazine and 'E:60.'"
