You have no favorite boards.
Strive for perfection in everything we do. Take the best that exists and make it better. When it does not exist, create it.
Maybe you're just playing devil's advocate here, but you're ignoring some known facts, or more likely circumstances to throw your "look at me" type rebuttals.
1. It was verified through TWO University of Florida Student Council Members that Cam Newton's name was never brought up to them. You can believe that or not, but it's much more likely that Thayer Evans was fed something to smear at a very opportune time, rather than UF doing anything wrong. Having two direct sources from UF is certainly much more believable than one anonymous source from a reporter with an obvious axe to grind.
2. Even if the question had been asked about Cecil and whether he'd taken money or not, what REALLY do you think he, or his lawyer would say? Do you think other than saying no, they'd give you any other type of answer? I understand people wanted the question asked, but there is NO way that his lawyer would let him address it. Also, you need to remember that Cecil has had a lawyer regarding this matter since before WE knew about it.
I understand that there's always the need for "that guy" on a message board that wants to be chippy, argumentative and cynical. However, sometimes in an effort to be "that guy" it's easy to ignore or throw common sense out the window in order to put another opinion out there.
Just MY opinion only...
I belive in Auburn, and love it! War Eagle every day!
I just got an email with auheel's entire summation. The story behind the e-mail is that someone has a friend that works for Tigers Unlimited and auheel's story was placed on her desk by someone that works in the athletic department and was supposedly written by someone in the atheltic department.
So based on "sources" auheel's summation is complete fact and auheel is employed in the athletic department at AU. Hmmmmm............
I can assure you that I don't work for the AU athletic department.
I think everyone on this thread has done a great job of debating the subect.
AUHEEL, you have done a tremendous job piecing this together. I was reading some of the posts on the "TigerDroppings" site a few days ago and there is a person over there that has done a similar write-up....only their interpretations are very damaging and incriminating of AU.
While the NCAA is sorting this thing out, I would love to see (or read) a debate between the two of you. Would make for some interesting stuff!
Personally, I like AUHEEL's summary better.
AUHeel. Been away for a couple of days and couldn't get AUC.....outstanding post. Thanks.
