    I agree. I had a lady tell me once that she hated to hear a Pastor say "my church" because it was not his church, it was God's church. Ten a few minutes later she said, "my Sunday School class has 14 members." LOL. Note she did not say, "the SS class I teach", but MY SS class. We sometimes find what we are looking for in words instead of just letting them be words.
    I do not believe in atheists, therefore they do not exist.

Just doesn't make sense for agents/recruits to treat the 7 on 7 camps the same way they treat the AAU circuit. Now, I'm not naïve enough to think there hasn't been some money passed around at 7 on 7 camps or arrangements made but I don't think it's anywhere near the scale or operation of what's hitting college basketball right now for the reasons I mentioned..
    So you think the money to obtain a player and his services for three years would be less than the money to obtain a player and his services for only one year? Ok!

    I agree. I took “we” to mean the basketball program in general.

    Think he was mainly trying to be funny based on the timing - two days removed from the ESPN report about his job security.

    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.
