Mr Fake News himself comes out of hiding to write an article on Auburn expecting a notice of allegation in hoops. Does this mean they will be next? It would be good for us if they are as it would give us even more of an idea of what to expect with assistant coach Person's being in the same boat as Book.

Except for the fact that HE paid players and two were ineligible while nobody at Arizona was paid according to the records.

If last season's record was vacated, nobody could complain about finishing with the worst record in 36 years because "it never happened".

Let's throw out last season & go on probation!

Post of the year! Brilliant!

Lol at Auburn trying to lie about self imposing a ban. This should be bigger news than its has been. Let's see if ESPN and Dickie V go crazy over this like they would if it was Arizona doing this instead.

I hope we forfeit schollies and get 2-3 years probation and can move on. Recruits seeing the endgame could give Miller a huge boost. Plus the damn uncertainty is killin me. Lets get this shit over wit already please and thank you NCAA

I don't really see that happening, meaning I think we get off with much less than that.

First off consider that what Book did (and was played out like a huge drama) did not benefit the school in any way, in fact the way the FBI framed it, his actions victimized the university...and I'm not talking about players getting money, he victimized the UA by committing a crime.

This is no different than Book getting caught on tape being part of a counterfeiting operation, its a federal crime he broke not a NCAA violation.

So what authority does the NCAA have here? Not much, Book has already been fired and the most glaring impropriety will be lack of institutional control over a rogue coach. What Book did does not violate NCAA rules that were in place, so imagine if an assistant at Duke got caught selling fake Rolexs to players...he would get fired and everyone would want to make a big deal about it but technically it does not violate anything in the Universities relationship with the NCAA...same thing here...

When the dust settles everyone is going to hear a ton of liquidated-brains people complaining that Miller cheats and gets away with it because he makes his staff take the fall, but there is not one shred of evidence that Miller has ever cheated the system...

If anything I bet when the NCAA is done they will say (behind closed doors) that Miller is one of the squeakiest clean coaches they have ever seen...think about the amount of scrutiny that Miller has been under for the last few years now...just imagine ANY OTHER COACH living under that spotlight and still pulling off the recruiting class he has done.

If you think Millerand the UofA are dirty consider your brains liquidated...you have not a lick of common sense.

So what can the NCAA punish? The fact that Miller did not wiretap his staffs phones and know everything they were doing at all times? Thats against the law by the way...there is a place where institutional control butts up against privacy laws and you can damn well bet Miller has his eyes right on that borderline at all times.

The NCAA cannot punish Miller for not breaking privacy laws.

Worst case scenario we lose a scholarship and Miller sits out two games, but I seriously doubt even that will happen...if there is any real punishment it MIGHT be over the Phelps saga...but its starting to look like Heeke is gonna take th efall for that one and Phelps is going to win his day...so even there Miller has no dirt on his hands.

You can't burn a witch you can't catch.
