    This is starting to get even more interesting. How in the world did two lower level staffers get wrapped up in this?

    And why haven’t we heard anything concerning reinstatement for Purifoy and Wiley yet? Beginning to wonder if there was something going on with players as well as the parents.

    Why would they be reinstated? This wasn't some minor violation...

    If you notice I said “concerning reinstatement”, not “when they will be reinstated”.

    Do you think Auburn is going to come out and go, well they're not going to be reinstated, like, ever. This is serious stuff, Auburn knows better than to run their mouths about it. May be the NCAA will be bros or something, but this isn't a sit a few games type scenario. Auburn does themselves no favors to advertise that fact.

    You completely missed the point. There's no way to keep a commitment from a football player for 3+ years. He may not even be a player that the NFL would draft by the time he's eligible to be drafted. An agent or agency will not stick out their neck for a 17 year old at a 7 on 7 football camp who may or may not make the NFL in 3-4 years. The one and done players in basketball are much easier to identify with a much quicker "turn time" (most as short as 6 months for star basketball player vs at minimum 3 years for a football prospect) and that's why agents and runners try so hard to get in on them early. Much faster return on investment (typically 6 months) and less risk than trying to hold on to a football player for 3-4 years. Also, sneaker deals and apparel deals are considerably more lucrative in the NBA than NFL. Almost every star NBA player has a major shoe deal. Not so much in the NFL. You have to understand the 2 different markets and revenue streams to understand why basketball prospects are targeted in a way that football prospects typically aren't..

    If it happened, it would be like letting kids loose in a toy store...

    So much to find, so little time. The FBI would have to call in their reserves.

    Just catching up on as the barn burns I noticed a lot of comments that barn could fire Pearl "with cause" due to silence. My question is how do you fire anyone "with cause" when the dude had a "show cause" when you hired him. Seems like his contract would contain the phrases "as is" and "no warranty" or maybe "no refunds". You asked for it, now pay the bill moron.
