    Well duh. But I wonder if any other boosters have the coaches headset piped into their private box. That's insane.

    How soon until the NCAA investigates the Oregon football program?

    No, I mean, how soon? Well, after Monday, of course. But Soon? Please?

    I'm hoping Auburn is ahead of Oregon on the NCAA's to do list.

    Knight isn't some hack good ol' boy booster. He knows how to stay within the rules, I'm sure.

    I'm sure he knows how to. If he's enough of an Oregon Fanboy that he waits by the fax machine on signing day, I'm guessing he's done something to make sure Oregon has one of the best recruiting class in the country.

    Maybe he does that just by making sure they have the best facilities in the country. Maybe he does more.
  9. The NCAA investiage a money-making major college athletic program? Puhleeze.

    Cleveland State, pick up the white courtesy phone.

    I bet a lot more will start asking for it. That's a priceless piece of access for boosters that otherwise have everything.

    If AU wins on Monday, the AU booster who ponied the $200K to Cecil Newton is the more influential.
