    Selena Roberts digs deep to find that Auburn is what we thought it was. Thoughts, opinions?

    Best $180,000 they ever spent.

    I got my bedroom suit at RoopsTiGo.

    I will say that "Campbell would discover what happened to her son over a timeline that may prove to be a tripwire to imploding a powerful and storied athletic institution" seems awfully presumptuous for the second graph, particularly given Auburn's history of skating past NCAA sanctions.

    My first thought is that's the dumbest title for a sports site I've ever seen.

    Secondly, I'll be interested to see the reaction from Auburn players to the local media. I know one player is already calling BS on it and he was quoted in the article. "RT @MikeBlanc93: Man this article is outrageous and isn't true. The media will do anything for a juicy story"

    I am trying to think of one thing less surprising, and I can't do it.

    This does create the possibility that a good clean Oregon program gets its rightful title.

    As much as I'd like Auburn to go down, that story doesn't do a very good job of connecting the supposed university indiscretions to the criminal proceedings against McNeil.

    The Auburn coaches were going to take care of McNeil then didn't? Why? (I'm probably just dense but that's where I was after reading the article.)

    Setting aside the possibility that Oregon's about to get hammered too, the second-place team doesn't get the title when the winner vacates. This ain't Miss America.

    It's OK. We'll all know who the true champion is.
