      Would you trade a NC for a 8 scholarships over two years and kicking a douchecanoe out for 2 years?

          They are hoping to get off light, for "self-reporting"

                Reading the article, it doesn't sound like this will be the end of it.

                  Were? Are you counting over signing corners and rush ends as filling scholarships?

                    Yes. We essentially did the same under Chimp. All Bucks and Corners.

                    We rarely got up to more than 70 scholly players. (Dont tell me about a few walkons getting a 'ship.)

                      Not sure what the problem is here. The game/season/amateur career was over for all those who accepted the cash.

                      Granted, it wasn't a good look, but not sure what is the issue here other than OBJ being an arrogant prick.

                        No no, we were assured that was fake money.

                          yeah it was stupid, but none of those players went to LSU because they thought that obj was going to hand them cash if they won a NC.

                          there was no competitive advantage for them.

                          it's not like every Alabama player getting issued a Dodge Challenger or a Cadillac Escalade or jobs and houses for their parents. but no one seems to be able to figure that out. how hard is it really to check the traffic tickets for these kids and which sports cars are driving? dealer plate or not?

                            You are a better attorney than that. The competitive advantage begins with this year's recruits who know success brings a cash reward at LSU.

                              Does a loss of scholarships even matter for the next few years based on what we know about this year not meaning a single thing for eligibility?
