  • As information about shadiness within the Auburn Football program under the leadership of Chizik, begins to seep out from under what were tightly sealed doors, one can’t help but watch very closely. 4 years have passed since these alleged infractions. That’s how long it took for some former player to “roll over” on his former school. So could 2016 or 2017 be a interesting year for the Ole Mi$$ football program or what?

      4 years? Wow. That must mean in about 3 more years we’ll finally hear the death bell toll for those pups at Moo U for those recruiting violations that are actively being investigated now. Could 2015 or 2016 be an interesting year for Mullen and the Moo-ettes? Will he be able to keep his job with those findings considering his declining record?

  • Buell Dagg,If you worried about MooU as much as you did Ole Miss you might be alright but frankly, I think you’re a lowlife prick.

  • Geeze Josh…isn’t that being a bit abusive…if I wrote those things, I would be banned from posting on this website. You have to maintain, dude!
