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

      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?

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

                      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?

                                When are they going to hit their basketball program? What’s the hold up on that, having the coach on tape offering money to recruits isn’t enough evidence I guess.

                                      Hopefully the NCAA does more. Because this is nothing. They are still allowed to sign 25 players each year. They are still gonna have at least like 3-6 transfers like everybody else does (i pulled that number out of my ass but that's my best estimate). 77 scholarships instead of 85. Big whoop. And O'dell beckham banned for couple of years... LOL. He's not gonna be showing up until they are good again anyway.

                                      I'm sure the NCAA will do something lame like a "1 year postseason ban." That Sh*t is so dumb. It should be a 5 year probationary period where if your team makes the playoff then it doesn't get to go the first time. The postseason ban is so dumb because it doesn't mean anything unless they were going to make the playoffs.

                                      Anyway, more than anything I want to see them crack down on LSU basketball and that unbelievably insufferable coach that they have. The dude is recorded on the phone and is obviously talking about offering money to recruits and still nothing has happened about that.

                                        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.

                                          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.
