Unfortunate to hear this news especially considering we just lost a recruiting battle with TCU over Jordan Moore. If the article is accurate and abut 80 members of the team fail the drug screen, the chance for early playing time is huge. I hope everything works out well for Moore.

So does this mean that the government has officially won the War on Drugs now? I assume arresting and punishing these 17 people will end drug abuse in this country. Huzzah for the Drug War!
Might be why he went there
Our Fulmer Cup record is still safe for the moment:
Not that I like having the most Fulmer Cup points ever, but now that we have them, it would almost be worse to get bumped down to the second-most Fulmer Cup points ever.
He added that he had failed the surprise test “for sure,” according to the warrant, then adding that he thought it wouldn't be a problem because there “would be about 60 people screwed.”
“What can they do, 82 people failed it.”
Uh Hello? How is that not exploding on ESPN right now?? lmao 82 players??? That's a whole damn team!" Not to mention this would mean that Gary Patterson covered for his whole entire team which would become a huge scandal.

If the drug tests were administered on Feb 1st I doubt it would have had any effect on Jordan Moore since he signed his LOI that day. I can't imagine anyone from TCU telling a 18 year old HS senior being recruited that they were getting ready to have a major drug bust involving players on the football team. How long does it take to get results for drug tests, especially marijuana?
Since the tests were administered on Feb 1st I wonder if TCU had already received the drug test results before the drug busts took place that dozens of players had failed the drug test. If so, what action had they taken, if any, before the drug busts took place. Of course, the player quoted, who allegedly was selling drugs could very well have been exaggerating or lying outright. Did officials at TCU get a "heads up" from local authorities and were directed to administer the drug tests as part of the prelude to the arrest of the 4 players?
From my experience hiring hundreds of people, it usually took about a week for us to hear back from the 3rd party vendor who handled the collection of data to let us know if someone was "cleared" for employment but that also included a credit check and verification of their college degree, major and grade point average as well as a few other things. I don't know how quickly the drug test came back and colleges may use different procedures. I would guess that TCU would have had results from the drug tests within a few days, if not sooner. If there had been dozens of players who tested positive for illegal drugs one would think that some type of action would have already been taken that would have become public by now.
I have to confess total ignorance of how college administrators and athletic departments handle situations involving positive drug tests of athletes but if 60 or 80 players on the football team tested positive for marijuana at the same time it seems like the "sh**" would have really hit the fan!

Headline on bspn right now...Cam took money....Auburn still in trouble....
Life Partners Forever_________ nic loves fineScum
If you have to ask why I love Auburn so much...never mind
I hope that the individuals involved can get their lives turned around and do something positive with this situation. This is unfortunate for their program.
I'm most curious by Patterson's claim that he was "shocked" the morning the arrests were made, yet he supposedly ordered a drug test on Feb 1 after a top rated recruit told him he wouldn't go to TCU because of widespread drug use on the team?
Anyone else see a contradiction?

The kid told the undercover cop that 82 guys on the team failed a drug test ...even if this was an exaggeration then it still means that a ton of their players were doing drugs. If the whole team got tested, then how would Patterson not know......... hmm
The speculation about Jordan Moore possibly being influenced to go to TCU was not because of the drug tests but because of the culture of drug use going on there - I assume he had at least one visit to TCU. Of course we have no way of knowing whether Jordan knew about the drugs or whether he uses them himself, it was pure speculation, and I must admit I had the same though occur to me.
As to the massive numbers of failed drug tests, if that is even true, and the implied assumption that TCU was covering it up is premature. If this indeed did happen, then the actions to be taken by the university would not be decided quickly.
How about we just not engage in pure speculation that someone may use drugs or enjoy being around them? It seems very unfair and completely unAuburn.
I agree, don't make up rumors about some kid you have never met. Save them for spanky.
It's Great to be an Auburn Tiger!!!
"Life is so much simpler when you tell the truth."
I happen to agree with you completely. I do not engage in baseless speculation, I was merely clarifying another's post and identified it to be the pure speculation that it is. If you take the time to re-read my post you will see that. What I do not agree with is the holier-than-thou tone you used after quoting my post. Message board Housemother you are not.
EDIT: LOL! I knew a -1 was coming!!!!!
